10 Feng Shui Decorating Tips By Market99
Avoid placing fire and water in the same line. In your kitchen, the sink and stove should not be next to each other or on the same side. If this is unavoidable, add a green element between the two. This ‘green element’ doesn’t have to be a plant. You could even have a green colander strategically placed between the two
A Feng Shui element that will work for a small kitchen is open display shelves. This opens up the confined spaces and lightens the energy in the room. With open shelves another aspect of Feng Shui that comes into play is decluttering. Keep enough space for energy to flow freely
Ideally, there should be no space between your kitchen cabinets and the ceiling as it attracts dust and stagnation. To avoid that negative space, add plants (live or realistic looking) or anything that will liven up that part. Let there be no room for any dead energy
The dining table should be in proportion to your room. An overly large table in a small room will make you feel locked in once the table is fully occupied. Ensure enough room to pull out the chairs and walk around them
Fill your space with happy family photographs for positive energy. Pleasant emotions and memories always attract joy and success. If you prefer art, ensure that there are no lonely or single lady’s pictures.
A colour cannot singularly activate energy. So, it doesn’t matter if you paint one wall green and the other another colour. The only restriction is the colour red, apart from that, choose any colour that is soothing and helps you relax in your home
Use a torchiere floor lamp to light up space. It’s an excellent choice as the light shines right up to the ceiling and is reflected back. Upward lighting helps negate inauspicious energy.
Sofas and chairs placed around a coffee table with a rug under it, is the perfect way of creating a cosy and warm environment. Don’t leave any piece of furniture alone, like a single chair in a corner. Close furniture placement creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Sufficient lighting is essential in every room. Keep lights on either side of an entrance. Avoid hanging lights in your room as it adds pressure to the space. Especially in the bedroom, as most of the time spent in this room is to unwind and sleep. Take note!
If you cannot avoid placing your bed facing the door, put a settee or high bench at the end of the bed that’s slightly taller than the mattress. To shift the energy, you can also place an upholstered screen between the foot of the bed and the entry.
