4 Feng Shui Tips for Your Home
Feng Shui for the home is based around simple practices designed to make a home feel healthier and a lot more organized. It helps you to connect to your home in a way that can affect your mood and well-being. Feng Shui is as common as "spring-cleaning" or decorating to make a home feel much more comfortable.
This ancient Chinese tradition can be done with a modern holistic approach, while still honoring the age-old traditions that come with Feng Shui. It's not about transforming the structure of your home, but instead evolving the spaces in a way that refreshes your home - and in turn your health.
Let's get into 4 Feng Shui decorating tips that may bring some harmony into your house!
1. Slow Down Your Home's Energy Flow: If the back door and the front door have a direct line of sight, that means the energy in the home, or chi, will flow through the home too fast. Instead of letting the energy go straight out the back door, you want the energy to undulate throughout the whole home in a graceful and even manner. The best way to slow down the flow is to place a patterned rug on the floor in front of the front door, add artwork on the walls, or add a round entry table to the foyer space.
2. De-Clutter Your House: We can all be guilty of letting things accumulate in our home that may not have a specific function. Clutter is more than just unappealing visually, it is an anchor for the energy in a home. An excessive amount of clutter can stop you from having clarity of thought, and may even weigh you down emotionally. Be sure to have organization throughout your home - from paying bills to recycling content and even something as simple as a designated spot for your keys. It'll help you feel less frazzled and feel more efficient in your day to day routine.
3. Front Door Path Must Be Kept Clear: The front door in a home is an important factor to Feng Shui. It is the main portal through which the energy from outside enters into your home. You want to make sure the energy flows uninterrupted through the front door, without "metaphorically" running into a wall. Keep your front entry area free of clutter and consider installing a mirror near the front door to refract the energy. The mirror can help expand the energy into the space, which in turn expands the opportunities within your life - and prevents you from feeling limited.
4. Maximize the Natural Light: Natural light can make a person much happier and more positive. You want to enhance as much natural light in a home as possible, which can be done by placing mirrors directly across from windows to help reflect the light throughout your space.
There are many ways to create the space you desire inside your home. These are just 4 easy steps to help with the flow of your home's energy and create a sense of comfort.
