Since our home is where we spend the most time during the day, it’s very important to make our homes happy, relaxing and comfortable, and the easiest way to do so is with Feng Shui. Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art of harnessing the positive energy from the environment using different decoration and item positions. It is thought that furniture arrangement, colors and certain items can bring prosperity, joy and fresh energy into your home. If you’re wondering how you can do it in your space, here’s a little Feng Shui guide for you.

First things first

Try eliminating as much clutter as you can from your home. When there are too many things in the house, it gets very hard to create balance, and clutter can overwhelm the energy of the room. So, remove all objects that serve little to no purpose but to collect dust, and you’ll automatically feel better. 

Pay attention to your entryway

One of the main areas responsible for good energy in the home is the entryway. Make sure you have a smooth and uninterrupted flow to the front door, also known as the “mouth of Chi”. Since this is where the good Feng Shui enters your home, remove all large obstacles away from your door and see if they need to be fixed or replaced with something more attractive and functional

Bring in the nature element

If you want to introduce Feng Shui into your home quickly and easily, you can bring the outside in. For instance, a potted plant will help you add a touch of color to the space and help freshen up the air. Even a bouquet of fresh flowers, a little succulent or a beautiful branch can energize and rejuvenate the space. 

Light it up

Lighting is the key to achieving good Feng Shui. You should provide your home with plenty of natural light, but also balance it with enough lighting fixtures. You can introduce fire element through candles that will bring warmth to the space and light up the darker areas with standing lamps and track lights. Good lighting will help you both relax and stay active and energized, so make sure to employ it well. 
Let colors work for you
If you want to make a significant change of Feng Shui in your home and boost its results, make sure to use colors to your advantage. The appropriate use of color is very important in Feng Shui, but it’s also quite complicated to get them to work harmoniously. However, when you’re focused on nourishing and straightening the energy of the space with color, you’ll achieve good Chi. 

Fix the problematic areas
If there are some areas in your home that can benefit from better Chi, you can improve their energy by implementing different Feng Shui strategies. You can use the right color, fix the placement of your furniture or place appropriate art. For instance, find an art piece that carries positive connotations and pleasant colors and frame it in your problematic area. Today, there are many companies that offer custom framing, so you can basically opt for any piece, photograph, graphics or quote you think will fit your space and improve its energy. 

Furniture placement for good Feng Shui
One of the most common mistakes people make when placing the furniture in their home is that they place all pieces directly against the wall. However, this placement doesn’t allow energy to flow freely through the home. Another thing you can do is arrange the furniture in a way that promotes conversation between people and face-to-face interaction by placing chairs opposite the couch instead of at the angles.
So, if you give these tips a try in your home, you’ll end up with a space that carries positive Feng Shui energy that will make you feel happy, focused and energetic.
