Feng Shui is all about keeping balance and a positive flow of energy throughout your home. This is believed to improve spirits and enhance living conditions tremendously. If you are remodeling or restoring your old home, keeping elements of Feng Shui present in your design can help improve the flow of your home as well as the feel and style. Here are the top 5 Feng Shui home remodeling tips all homeowners should consider.
- First, it is important to keep the kitchen at the heart and center of your house. The kitchen is where our lives revolve. Here is where we bond, spend time together, and receive sustenance for our busy lives. Keeping the flow of your home focused on this important area helps to promote kinship, vitality, and positivity. The kitchen should be clean, clear, open and bright with lots of lighting. Reduce clutter as best you can to keep countertops clean and clear. Fresh flowers or live plants help to cheer up any room and are ideal in your kitchen. Finally, keep gadgets to a minimum and if you do have them, store them away when they are not being used.
- Try to keep bedroom sizes balanced and equal, especially if you have multiple children. When you are remodeling, you have the ability to manipulate room sizes. Keeping things equal and fair will help to reduce negative energy that may develop if one sibling has a larger bedroom space than another. Keeping things equal perpetuates balance and also helps to reduce jealous ensuring that all children feel equally loved, nurtured and tended to at home.
- Colors also influence Feng Shui drastically. Be sure to refer to the Bagua which is a Feng Shui color maps. Different colors are associated with different types of energy, so you will want to use this to help you map out the colors in each room of your home. It can also be used for helping you choose an exterior color paint too! For example, rooms toward the north of your home or facing north are associated with water so colors like blue and black are ideal. East facing is related to wood and requires browns and greens. South is fire represented by purple, red, orange, yellow and pink. Finally, West is best with colors like white and grey since it represents metal. There are also colors to consider for Northeast, Southeast, Northwest, and Southwest accordingly. You can determine you best options by using a compass.
