Five Ways to Feng Shui Your Home

by limniospropertygroup | 15. March 2018 10:16

Feng shui is the ancient Chinese art of balancing the flow of energy in spaces like the home, to encourage a positive environment and lifestyle. Inspired by our resident guru Michelle, we’ve put together a short guide on how to make some feng shui-friendly changes in your house this month.


1. FORM AND FUNCTION


Get rid of anything that does not promote a sense of calm in your house. Consider adopting a more minimalist approach to your home by surrounding yourself only with items that bring you happiness, practicality and purpose; don’t hoard old treasures that don’t add value to your life or no longer hold any significance to you. Clutter clearing is a time and energy consuming process that will feel like therapy, but will also help you lighten the load of other stresses and burdens so to speak.


Make sure everything in your home is running properly and efficiently. Fix anything that is broken and throw out anything beyond repair. Drains are thought to be where negative energy leaves the home, so you’ll want to ensure yours are unclogged at all times – a great task to revisit at the start of each new season!


 


2. AIR AND LIGHT


Lighting is very important in feng shui as it is one of the strongest manifestations of energy. Natural light promotes a positive flow, so keep curtains and blinds open throughout the day and use lamps to illuminate dark spaces in the evenings. Good quality air is also important, so open windows regularly to welcome fresh air inside.


 


3. SPACE AND STYLE


The kitchen is the centre of good feng shui. It’s vital to create balance here because all five elements of feng shui are present in the one room – fire (oven), water (sink), metal (appliances), wood (cabinetry) and earth (food).


The main entrance to your home is the entry point for all energy, so you want it to be welcoming to encourage a positive flow to other parts of the house. Introduce a vibrant rug, vase full of fresh flowers or even a side table and lamp in this space.


When arranging your living room furniture, try to create a warm and inviting environment for conversation by placing your couch and tables in a circle. Add mirrors and indoor greenery to help the energy flow throughout the room. Avoid sharp edges, which promote a negative energy.


 


4. COLOUR


Certain colours will enhance the feng shui of your home: red promotes prosperity and balance while green encourages wealth. If you’re a homeowner and looking to make colourful changes to your property, consider painting your front door in either of these colours. Yellow is perfect for the kitchen as it encourages a high energy flow at the heart of your home.


 


5. PLACEMENT AND LUCKY CHARMS


Where furniture is placed in the home is vital for ensuring a good energy flow. For example:



  • Your work station or study desk should face the door in your office, not the wall.

  • In the bedroom there should be room to walk around either side of your bed and bedside tables should be placed on either side.

  • Mirrors should not face your bed or the main door


Fish are considered to be the symbol of prosperity, so welcoming a new family pet or investing in some artwork or trinkets is a great way to create a positive environment. Houseplants also promote good energy, but only if they’re healthy!
