Have you ever been in a cluttered place and at once felt frustrated? Then entering a place where everything is dark, and it feels depressing. These different instances show us the power of design in our lives.
Design influences us a great deal and it is something that we should pay attention to. If we do not, it can certainly affect our productivity, outlook on your life, and general activities. Let us look at the importance of design and how the right Feng Shui can make a difference. Feng Shui is the Chinese style of spatial arrangement and how it affects the flow of energy in humans.
Feng Shui is Quite Effective for a Holistic Space
Don’t Have Overpowering Elements
A Great Aspect about Feng Shui is Harmony
Ideally, there will be balance and no aspects of your home that are too overpowering. Just as the correct design elements can add to a home, poorly placed elements can detract greatly. Look around your house and look for any areas that can be improved.
This can include looking for items such as leaky faucets, peeling paint, and cobwebs that are piling up. These things greatly contribute to your environment and are fairly easy to fix. Things such as a leaky faucet can contribute to money being wasted. You might not realize it, but these trivial things can deplete your energy daily.
Little Details Can Contribute or Detract from Feng Shui
If you have a mirror near your entryway, ensure that it is not too attention-grabbing. Having a mirror by the door is great to quickly touch up makeup or just check in and ensure you look presentable before leaving for the day. However, you do not want to place it in a way that takes away from your entryway.
Try not to sit next to your back to the door. This creates a vulnerable environment. You want to create an environment of power. Ideally you should place your desk in a way that you would be sitting against a wall. Sitting with your back to the wall will allow you to feel empowered and confident.
Art Can Add to Feng Shui Design
Art can be a terrific addition to any home. If possible, try to add art that creates an environment of joy and happiness. Try to avoid colors that are dark and gloomy. Try to avoid plants that are spiky as they can create a negative environment.
If you want to add art that is unique and inspires positivity, look for independent artists. This would allow you to get art that is framed, unframed, and on canvas. This will allow you to change the feel of different rooms. You can also buy prints if you are not a fan of canvas art.
The first thing to do is to walk through your house and see what should be fixed or is in need of attention. After these have been addressed, see where you want to make additions. Then, ensure whatever you add is appropriate for the room. Creating a Feng Shui design in your home will add to an organized peaceful atmosphere enhancing your overall mood as you move about your home.
