Let’s get to the Feng Shui tips. As per Feng Shui, a home should be a mirror of oneself, thus the placements of any furniture or object has a huge significance. For instance, a sofa should always be against a wall far from the living room’s entry. A coffee table should be an oval or circular one, as harsh angles pointing at guest is not a warm welcome. However, a living room should consist of a mix of shapes as each shape represents one element: Squares for Earth, Rectangles for Wood, and triangles for fire and round for metal. It is also not advisable to have a TV in the living room, if the living room is a public space. Perfect colours for living rooms are Red, Deep Blue or Eggplant.
When it comes to the bedroom, it is better to have dim lights as too much active energy is not advisable for a good rest. Also, bedrooms should not be a dumping room for laptops or computers, it takes away all the good energy and distracts people from having a good sleep pattern. Also, make sure not to store anything under the bed as it sends out negative vibes all night long. Good colours for the room are yellow, red, green or orange as it represents happiness, courage, growth and optimism respectively. You could as well paint the walls with different colours or put objects of these colours to have a right balance of energy.
Now the most important place: Kitchen! Everyone belongs to the kitchen as it is the one place where you can find food, and stores a lot of fire energy. While building a house, it is wise to keep the kitchen towards the house’s back door. The stove should preferably be in such a position that east is faced when cooking. The sink should be in the North or North East, and taps should be fixed and not be leaking as it is associated with draining all money and wealth. Rose or chocolate colours are most suitable for floors and walls.
