Furniture Arrangement

Feng shui focuses on allowing energy to flow through your home. That means decluttering your rooms so you can walk through freely, creating a sense of space, and easy passage from one part of the home, from one room to another. It could be as simple as rearranging furniture and removing a few items.

You want an uninterrupted circular arrangement of furniture to help energy flow through out your home, capturing it so the energy stays within the house and is not allowed to slip away.

Declutter! You’ve heard it often enough. Remove items hiding under your furniture, declutter cabinets and closets because they block energy flowing from one part of your home to others. Remove anything broken or fix it, and that includes fixtures too.

Clean Air – Fresh Plants

Clean air is vital because a constant flow of fresh air brings with it new energy, ideas and abundance and a house with a good energy flow is considered a lucky house, a positive Feng shui home. Keep windows open when you can, to maximize air flow as this also allows natural light in to clean allergens and dust mites.

  1. Keep your kitchen clean and tidy and your refrigerator and pantry organized and filled with fresh food.
  2. Use red, purple and green in your decor because red is auspicious, purple is royal and regal and green is the color of abundance but if you hate these colors, please, don’t use them.
  3. Lose clutter and add plants and water, even though I mentioned this before its worth mentioning again.
  4. Have a yard sale, gift or donate your unwanted items to make space for new opportunities.
  5. Create a beautiful dedicated space as your office. Most people work in tiny cramped corners, does that smell like success to you?
