Features and benefits of tatami mats

What is the difference between ordinary tatami and tatami mats?
Unlike ordinary tatami mats, which are spread out exactly according to the room, the tatami mats are unit type, and the feature is that you can place your favorite size in any place you like.

Half tatami size that can be combined as you want
A typical tatami mat is a square half tatami size and can be used in combination. The mainstream size is 2.7ft x 2.7ft.
There is also a smaller size, which is convenient to carry and move.

It’s economical because you only have to prepare as many as you need.

It has a moderate cushioning property, so it is perfect for a space where children play. It is also a soundproofing measure and is recommended for families living in condominiums who are worried about the sound of children jumping. You can also install them under the Japanese futon when sleeping as the traditional way.

Tatami has high heat insulation and moisture retention. It can prevent the heat of summer and the cold of winter.

If you want to take in Japanese taste casually, try laying tatami mats at the feet of your sofa or table. You should be able to relax with a cool feeling in the summer and a warm feeling in the winter. It is suitable for living alone or in a small room, and if you use it in a large room, you can buy more units, so it will not be wasted.

There is also a type of unit tatami with storage.
It’s cool to make such a small rise in the corner!

Points to choose tatami mats

Choose the material natural or chemical?
Natural rush regulates the humidity in the room and is said to be expected to have air-purifying and deodorizing effects. On the other hand, tatami mats made of chemical products are less likely to discolor due to sunburn and have the advantage of preventing mold and mites.

Washi is attractive for the smooth texture
In addition to rush and chemical material, Japanese paper weave is sometimes used as the material for tatami mats. Japanese paper is highly durable and water repellent, so it is recommended for children’s rooms.
Prices will vary depending on the material, so please compare and choose.

Check edges, size, and anti-slip
There are two types of tatami mats, the “Ryukyu tatami 琉球畳”, which has no border, and the one with a border, which has an old-fashioned taste. Tatami mats without rims are easy to match with Western-style rooms, and with rims, the space becomes tight and calm. Let’s stick to the image of the edge according to your taste. It is also a point to check before purchasing whether there is a non-slip on the backside.
