      Most normal people buy cheap wall to wall carpet which is made out of cancer. If you're not spending at least $1000 per square meter, question your decision.

    I approve of the idea. Just spent 2.5k$ on a fricking mattress and was thinking I'd be just as happy on raised tatimi mats but frick. to make a queen size bed out of these would cost the same
    3x3'
    over 140$/sqft
    lmao

    Hello fren. Hardwood floors are not what you put tatami on. You need recessed flooring to put your tatami because standard tatami are approx 2 inches thick. Underneath tatami are cheap boards which slide in and out of place over floor joists. A trad Japanese house fits together like a puzzle, with no nails or screws of any kind. I appreciate your enthusiasm, but visit Japan first and investigate how the floor is put together. It will be enlightening.

          200 years ago, those Japanese would have been to my beckon call if I weighed 400 lbs. Appearance of a masterful Sumo warrior. We must return.

    Tatami seems like an area diy especially saves you a lot. It's insanely expensive but even in Japan they are just foam and mdf most of the time, and from China. You need some sort of agricultural quarantine license to get the straw filled mats in America, assuming you even find one willing to export. Buy the igusa material in a nice long roll and the border strips. Staple that shit to foam insulation board yourself and you can probably get it down to $10/sqft. If you want softness weebs are familiar with eva foam for cosplay, 1/8" probably does the trick.

    Or skip the middleman and get it straight from alibaba or madeinchina just like the Japanese artisans do. Skip the hardwood floors. OSB is perfect for this.

      No they're not you frickin idiot. Foam doesn't mold. Get your tatami wet and now you're buying new ones!

    Japan is now a third world country.
    Some say it always was and non-japanese just believed a fiction.
    A land of 15 square meter apartments where you eat out of a 30 year old rice cooker.

    Experiment with other materials. Me I just had a shit load of cork arrive that stuff is beautiful. Looks so natural and it has a earthen relaxing smell. It will be alright for flooring if 1) you varnish it and 2) you dont put sharp or heavy objects on it. Basically like tatami. Treat it as cushions I would say

    tatami must be a pain in the ass to clean if you don't have a 24/7 dedicated wife. it is a terrible idea.
    tiled floors are always the best because you can just use heavy chemicals and it becomes squeaky clean.

      Probably easier when all the shoes stay outside.
