Create Good Feng Shui In Your Home!
It is important that you decorate with the correct objects for proper energy flow in the living space. Here are some common mistakes along with some simple interior design ideas for living room, bedroom, bathroom and the kitchen.
Mistake #1 Storage under the bed
While it may be practical for you, storage underneath your bed consisting of old clothes, photos, electronics and shoes is not considered good in Feng Shui. You spend many hours sleeping over all this stuff which could have an adverse effect on you.
Pro Tip: Store only bed linens, blankets and pillows, if you must. Remember to keep the area under the bed as clean and tidy as possible to make it energetically clear.
Mistake #2: Incorrect water feature placement
The worst assumption you can make about the water feature placement is adding it in any corner of the house. Water is believed to attract very powerful and active chi energy. If placed incorrectly, it is believed to flush away love and prosperity.
Pro Tip: It is recommended that you place a water element like a fountain right at the entrance of the house, like the one you see in the picture.
Mistake #3: Displaying dead plants
Living green plants and fresh flowers are believed to bring positive life energy into a home and are considered excellent Feng Shui. If a plant is sick, do your best to heal the plant since it indicates ill health for the inhabitants of the house.
Pro Tip: Place plants like Areca, Boston Fern, Golden Pothos, Jade and Lucky Bamboo that are believed to promote gentle and nourishing energy. Avoid cactus that is believed to have ‘spiky’ energy.
Mistake #4 Cluttered kitchen
Kitchen shelves and cupboards are the easiest to become cluttered. For a Zen cooking experience, it is important to have a kitchen that is well-organised.
Pro Tip: Store “like with like” such as mugs with mugs, spoons with spoons and plates with plates.
