An increasing number of customers are asking designers to prepare their home in line with the principles of Feng Shui. So what is Feng Shui? In short, it is an ancient Chinese system of architecture and design that promotes the free flowing of ch’i- universal life energy.
Some people may be skeptical towards this type of belief, but there are countless cases of homes designed in Feng Shui that have remained mysteriously untouched through all sorts of disasters such as fires and earthquakes.
The main entrance to your home is very significant; it must be welcoming and allow the flow of energy to enter the home. Depending on the size of the entry, try putting in a side table and mirror or even just a floor rug. Don’t put a mirror facing the door, as this is considered a no-no in Feng Shui.
For the living room, make sure that the furniture arrangement will allow for the free flow of energy. Be sure to allow a lot of light into this area and don’t have any sharp ends pointing in the direction of the seating area. This room is particularly important for the Feng Shui principles as it’s where most of the family will be spending time together.
The bedroom is a place of calm so televisions, stereos and game consoles should be avoided. Make sure there is plenty of room if possible on each side of the bed, and if you have any plants in the bedroom make sure they are a good distance from the bed.Make sure lots of fresh air gets into the bedroom; this time of year is perfect to open the windows
But the main thing to remember is to design and furnish your home so that you’re happy with it.
