Feng Shiu | Part 2 - Tips by Room

(Continued...)


Finding good Feng Shui in basic rooms of the house and tips to help. Again, this is copy and paste, but has been edited so you can easily understand it.

Front Door & The Main Entrance
The front door of a house is called "the mouth of Chi" in feng shui, as this is how your house absorbs essential Chi, or energy. When a house has enough good Chi coming in and the flow of Chi is harmonious, the people living in the house experience heightened levels of well-being. Learn to take good care of the feng shui of your front door and help your home absorb best energy nourishment.
1. An unobstructed, open flow of energy to the front door.
 This means there are no recycling bins, cracked old pots with dead plants or any other items blocking the flow of feng shui energy to your front door.
2.
A front door that is well-cared for: that opens widely without squeaking, that has good looking door hardware and paint. no odd looking, unused nails around the door frame, no rusty doorknobs, no worn out Christmas wreaths in June... you get the idea.
3.
A front door that is in harmony with the feng shui element of its direction. The direction of the front door is very important in feng shui, so in order to harness the best energy it is advisable to choose a feng shui colour that is in harmony with the feng shui element of its direction.
4. A strong feng shui front door opens up to a smooth flow of energy in the main entry
. The efforts of attracting the best feng shui energy to your house will be wasted if your main entry does not have good feng shui. You need to channel the good feng shui energy throughout your house, and it all starts in your main entry.
5.
A front door that "is enough", or has a good relationship with the house structure. A strong feng shui front door is a door that has good proportions in comparison to the house as a whole. This simple point is often forgotten during home renovations, so you can often see two or three story houses with tiny front doors that might have been enough when the house was initially just a small, ones story structure.
Feng shui is all about balance and harmony, so be sure you check the energy of your front door often to assure good feng shui Chi flowing into your house. Use Feng shui colours for your front door wisely in order to attract the best quality of Chi, or universal energy. Best feng shui colours for your front door are determined by the feng shui direction of the front door.



Living Rooms and Family Rooms

Know how to create good energy in the busiest areas of your home - the living room and the family room. Check the bagua area(s) of your living room and family room and decorate them accordingly by using the right feng shui element colors. Go even further and find out the feng shui birth elements and kua numbers of your family members and create harmony for all!

Choosing a good feng shui decor scheme for your living room usually requires a bit of work. It is best to start with understanding the feng shui 
bagua, or energy map of your home. Once you know the feng shui area your living room is located in, you will have clarity on the best choice of colors, shapes and materials based on the feng shui element that needs to be supported.

For example, if your living room is in the South feng shui bagua area, you will be encouraged to strengthen the Fire and Wood feng shui elements, so reds, oranges, yellows, as well as all shades of greens and browns will be excellent feng shui for your living room.

In your quest to create best feng shui decorating for your living room do not forget that you need all five feng shui elements, just in different proportions, so be sure not to eliminate, for example, the water feng shui element in the South area, just limit it in relationship to the other feng shui elements.


Main Bedroom & Guest Bedrooms
Find out everything about the feng shui of your bedroom - from what makes a good feng shui bed to mistakes to avoid in your bedroom. From choosing the best colors for your bedroom to dealing with all your bedroom challenges in the most practical feng shui way. Your bedroom is the most important room in your house - treat it wisely.

Your Kitchen
The kitchen was always considered the heart of a home. In feng shui, the energy in the kitchen is also connected to the energy of wealth and abundance. Explore solutions for many feng shui kitchen challenges - from a very small kitchen to a kitchen located in an undesired feng shui area of the Bagua. Find out the feng shui meaning of an oven mouth, choose best colors for your kitchen and do not forget to watch our short video tip on creating good feng shui in your kitchen.

Feng Shui and the Kitchen Triangle

Feng shui agrees with the proper interior design placement of the so-called kitchen triangle - the oven, sink and fridge - because this provides for the best balance between two conflicting elements: fire and water.

Good Kitchen Feng Shui Colors
Any shade of yellow is excellent for the kitchen because it's a good color for digestion. Red, brown, and white are also good choices for the kitchen. Try to avoid a strong presence of water colors such as blue or black because they put down the fire feng shui element.

Clutter and Kitchen Feng Shui
Keeping your kitchen clean and clutter-free is a necessary step for good feng shui. This applies both to areas that you can see right away, such as your countertops, as well as the ones that are usually hidden.

Feng Shui Kitchen Decor
Place a bowl of fruit or a vase of flowers on your kitchen table. Display some of your utensils, plates, or cookbooks to create a nourishing and welcoming feeling in your body. The kitchen was considered to be the heart of the home for thousands of years. Use feng shui to make it a clean, light and happy heart for you and your family. 



Your BathroomsBathrooms have a bad reputation in feng shui. However, this does not mean you can’t create good energy in your bathroom. All you need is some good feng shui tips and a bit of effort. Find easy solutions for various feng shui bathrooms challenges, such as a bathroom in the feng shui money area or a bathroom over the bedroom. Watch our short video for some simple tips and forget about bad bathroom feng shui!


First, you need to keep your bathroom spotless, like full on sparkling clean. This is because the energy in the bathroom can be a bit challenging, feng shui-wise. Any lack of order of cleanliness will quickly double, if not triple the negative quality of energy there.


Next, once you know the feng shui bagua are where your bathroom is located. No matter where your bathroom is located, colour white and light skin colours are excellent for the bathroom. White is also a metal element colour which is the energy that cuts through unnecessary slowness, delays, confusion etc. and warm skin colours are very friendly and welcoming for your body.

Children's Rooms
A good flow of feng shui energy in the space will inevitably lead to a happier, healthier child, while a room with a poor energy flow will contribute to a child who can't sleep well, is cranky, and tends to get sick often. Use feng shui to create a healthy and happy space for your children.

Here are three main steps for a good feng shui foundation in your children's room.


1. Fresh air is a must for good feng shui in any space and especially in children's rooms where there is a constant influx of toys, gadgets, clothing, books, etc. Monitor the air quality in your children's room and open the windows often.

2. Clutter clear and organize are the two-in-one absolutely necessary steps for good feng shui in your child's room. There is no way around it, you have to have a clear system so as to avoid chaos and low energy.

3. Use good feng shui colors and feng shui cures in the children's room to strengthen the energy foundation for your young ones and help them experience a harmonious and happy growth.

The main feng shui goal in transforming children's rooms is to create a healthy, loving and safe environment. A child's room created with feng shui in mind will serve as an emotional and physical support during many experiences of your child's growth.


The Dining Room

Explore the feng shui basics for your dining room to help you enjoy your dinners and use the dining room more often. Choose best feng shui colors according to the Bagua area, find out the recommended guidelines for your dining table and let feng shui help you create good times with your family and friends. With good food, of course!
The table should be in proportion to the room and it is best to have an even number of chairs, unless you go for a round table. Best chairs are the ones with a solid back. As the dining table is one of the most versatile and functional furniture pieces in the home, I would suggest taking your time, doing your research and buying it when you are in a relaxed mood. Ask where the table is made and who made it. Invest in an oak, pine, cherry or walnut table, rather than chip board with veneer, or a glass one.
So there you have it, the basic Feng Shui tips for the basic rooms of your house. I have learnt quite a lot and it had definitely opened my eyes to a whole new experience I need to try - Feng Shui may or may not do the world of good for me; I guess I will just have to wait and see if the ancient art and science developed over 3,000 years ago in China is indeed real. I really hope so!
See you later!
