Do you know what feng shui is? Well, it’s a Chinese art that balance energies in a given space.
There’s a difference between a space that looks good and a space that giving off good energy. The living room is often the first room your guests will see when they enter your home. Since your living room should appeal to variety of guests and make all guests feel comfortable, you may want to incorporate these feng shui principles into your space.
Furniture placement is one of the biggest principles in feng chui. It is little more technical than you would think normally. The layout should be conversational-friendly which allows relationship and prosperity. When you place chairs opposed to each other, remember this setup is not an intimate setting. Turn it around and make your setting next to one another. According to feng shui principle, your furniture should be facing the door rather than backing the door.
Be clutter free
The foundation of good feng chui is a clean and clutter free living room. Sweep out the old to make the room for new. Freshness and cleanliness is a key component of feng shui. Avoid placing unnecessary objects as a saturated environment restrict the movement of positive energy. Try to keep it all in a natural order.
Let the light in
In feng chui, windows are connected with seeing what lies ahead and gaining clarity of life. This is why you shouldn’t locate your living room in center of house. After all, it’s all about flow of positive energy that can’t reach if living room is nestled in depth of the house. Make sure your living space is receiving plenty of sunlight and keeps fresh air flowing.
There should be an unobstructed pathway in a feng shui living room. Keep the doorways clear while placing furniture. Make sure to leave a few inches gap between wall and furniture. Further, the chi (life-force) is likely to amass in sharp corners of the space, by placing lamps, plants and side tables; you can let the energy flow freely.
Reflect the Landscape
Place the furniture in such a way that gives the beautiful landscape view. Hang a mirror to reflect the scenery for those who (seated in a way) may not view and appreciate the beauty in person. Nothing can bring as much positive energy as natural view does.
Use feng shui colors
Once you have done all the basics, it’s time to start using a feng shui color scheme. Feng shui colors for the living room can set the tone for the overall feel for your entire home or apartment. The best colors are yellow, beige, tan, green and blue. It also includes neutral earthy tones like brown, and tan which are associated with bagua.
Rounded edges of furniture and Square Coffee Table
In feng shui space, you should consider to incorporate furniture having rounded edges. Avoid corners. Since, hospitality and comfort is a key element of feng shui, a coffee table is important. However, it’s better to pick a square or rectangular coffee table rather than round. Probably, this has to do with the main function of coffee table which is a place to put objects.
Your home reflects your life. Your living space can be the best place to start feng shui in your home. Be sure to implement these basic principles of feng shui that go a long way.
