Feng Shui for Small Living Spaces
Get rid of the clutter
If you want energy to flow freely through your living space, make the area clutter free. Start with the entrance of your house as it is the main source of energy. Make use of decorative storage boxes to store shoes.
Divide your rooms
It is a good idea to divide the living space cleverly with room-dividing options such as tall plants. You can keep two or three plants in between the kitchen and dining space or install a bookshelf or a row of curtains to divide a room.
Mirrors reflect light and create an illusion of a large space. Keep it in such a way that you can see the reflection of outdoor views as this is believed to add beauty to the space.
A popular Feng Shui technique is hanging a mirror behind the top burners of your stove-top as it is believed to magnify wealth. Make sure to clean the mirrors often and avoid hanging them right across each other.
Pick soothing decorative elements for your bedroom
When you wake up in the morning, you want something soothing to greet you. Opt for soothing images like a mesmerising waterfall or a beautiful scenic photograph to wake up to.
Incorporate the five elements
In Feng Shui, there are five elements — fire, wood, earth, metal and water.
Each of the elements channels a certain kind of energy. Fire represents passion while wood enhances prosperity. Earth promotes stability, metal enhances focus and water improves communication. Incorporate the elements based on the energy you want in your living space. You can create the same energy by incorporating the colour of the element in the room too. For example, if you want a productive environment, you could paint the walls grey rather than invest in a metal desk.
