If you believe in the Feng Shui, then this blog is all about how to adjust your house, to make it a happier place.
Create A Garden
Feng Shui is balancing bad with the good, if your house has Sha Chi (attacking) or Si Chi (low) energy, you need to adjust it.
If you are living in a T-junction home or near about a railroad, you have to have a garden. It doesn’t matter if the garden is smaller or bigger, you must take create a garden.
The plants float a solid positive vibe in the air, which will cancel out the Sha Chi and Si Chi exclusively.
Keep A Bedroom A Bedroom
It is ironic how we are using word bedroom for a room, where we have every-possible-thing available too.
It counts as lousy Feng Shui if you have things in a bedroom which do not belong in it.
For example, computer, television, exercise gear, family pictures, etc. Feng Shui says one must avoid such things in bedrooms.
Also, there should not be anything hanging above your bed by the ceiling, unless it is a soft canopy. The science behind this is that heavy things like fans or chandelier can fall off and hurt a person sitting or laying on the bed.
Feng Shui advocates soft mattress too; the suitable mattress will be more right a term. A bed should be able to provide a good night sleep.
Letting The Energy In And Sustaining It
Feng Shui is all about sustaining the right energy into your house. As per the ancient art, a house’s entry door is also the entry door for the good vibes.
Letting in the good vibes is another thing and channelizing them throughout the house is another. So, there should not be a mirror facing your front door, which could deflect it right back.
A bathroom or a backdoor shouldn’t also be in the line of the front door. Once good energy enters your home, it shouldn’t leave quickly.
Having a bedroom, facing your front door or your kitchen is a good thing. One spends most of one’s time inside kitchen or bedroom, so, that’s where the good vibes must be reflected.
The stairs are an initial part of the today’s houses’ interior design, shortage of spaces results in multistory houses and the staircases.
Nonetheless, stairs can flash the good energies upstairs in no time, leaving the ground floor dry, if the stairs are in line with the front door.
So, one must never construct staircase in front of house’s front door. Narrow stairs are also objectionable in Feng Shui.
A few years ago a trend of spiral staircase hit the market and vanished quickly. It is because spiral stairs can twist and turn the sound energy into negative energy. Make sure to steer clear of the spiral stairs, it manipulates the good energy.
The Wealth Hub Of Your Home- Kitchen
Feng Shui sees Kitchen of a house as an essential part; it calls it a hub of wealth and prosperity. The reason behind this is, the kitchen provides us food, which gives us energy.
Feng Shui experts call it the heart of a house. So, as per the art of wind and water, the kitchen must be clean, light colored and full of light.
Your kitchen should not be clustery and overstuffed with gadgets. Feng Shui claims that color yellow is better for human’s digestion.
Solid colors are already in the trend so that you can repaint your kitchen yellow any day now.
Your Baby’s Nursery
Babies are our future and who doesn’t want their babies to be safe? Feng Shui, in this case, is strict there are a particular set of rules that one must follow while decorating a baby’s nursery.

Similarly, a person who is feeling down the majority of the times, fire elements can do wonder about their personality.
