Reinforce positive energy and create a space of welcoming warmth and balanced home. By buying into the notion of Feng Shui, you’ll be able to do that with just a few twists and turns around the house. There are a few guidelines to follow and ideas to take into consideration, but we’ve got you covered with this quick guide. Here are 15 ways to utilize the art of Feng Shui and transform your space.

1. Good Front Door Chi

It’s really important to pay attention to the energy at your front door. Nothing too abrasive or harsh should ruin the entrance into your home. And that’s why we found this royal blue, spirited entryway from Pinterest so delightful.

2. No Sharp Edges

Sharp edges in and around the house are a no-no. Pay attention to your furniture peices and try going with deisgns that are more rounded and approachable. This setup from MBG Lifestyle is a beautiful example of a feel-good bedroom.

3. Soothing Colors

This may be an obvious one, but for those that want to transform their home into some more feng shui friendly, then go with more soothing colors. Just check out this modern space on our article about Feng Shui Décor, for example It’s calming and welcoming, exactly what you’d want in a house!

4. Minimize Electronics

Noble Carriage offered up this refreshing space for us to grab inspiration from. And you don’t see another tech filling up the corners. Electronics suck the life out of the room. Minimize as much as you can.

5. Command Position

It’s important that you have you bed facing the command position. What does that mean? Fashion the bedroom around this design. The bed should be facing the door. Not adjacent or behind it. You should always be able to see who is walking in.

6. Notice the Big 5

It’s all about the senses and if you can touch each of them, you’ve rounded out the room right. Add a white noise machine or a essential oil diffuser!

7. Organize the Bookshelf

Clutter brings in stress and anxiety. It’s an absolute no-no. Make sure you tidy up those bookshelves.

8. No Water (in the Bedroom)

This beautiful bedroom to give us inspiration too! It’s important to stay away from water in the bedroom (other spaces in the house are great but not here). From art depictions to fountains, keeping water and its fierce energy away from a tranquil bedroom is absolutely necessary.

9. Seperate Work & Rest

Don’t have a work space that’s mixed with a spot of rest. Keep desks out of the bedroom. Instead, create its own area to get creative or the hard stuff accomplished, like with a stunning room like this.

10. Clear the Clutter

This simple kitchen and we snatched it right up. Why? Because it has no clutter and no issues. As we mentioned before, messes cause anxiety and change the energy of the room. Clearer is better.

11. Add Plants

How we can utilize beautiful bouts of green in the house. Plants breathe in new life to the space so use them at every twist and turn that you can. Practice your green thumb.

12. Create a Spa

Natural Mavens knows exactly how to make the perfect, feng shui-friendly bathroom. How? As much of a spa-infused input you can manage, the better. The relaxing, welcoming energy is exaclty what you should be aiming for.

13. Remove Bad Reminders

We love this trendy entryway from Homedit. But why does it work for those that need feng shui advice? Well, it has no traces of an ex-lover, bad relationship, or any traumatic reminders of the past. Make sure all of that is taken out of the house.

14. Nix the Mirrors

This home office is snazzy and free-spirited and we snatched it from a previous post at Homedit. It falls in line with the notion to stay away from a lot of mirrors, at least in certain situations. Never have one facing the bed, nothing in the entryway, and nothing with distorted features.

15. Couple Items

Pairs are always good for balance, especially with furniture and decor. A beautiful representation of how to handle that task. Balance is key for the home and the heart.
