Tips and Tricks for Feng Shui Living Room
When you think about a room in which you are spending most time, you probably think about living room. It is important to bring a positive and clean energy into your home, but you can do it one room at a time. I suggest that you start with living room.
Here I wrote some tips and tricks for achieving feng shui in your home and in life:
ORGANIZED LIVING ROOM
A living room that is clean and clutter free is the only foundation for good feng shui. Yes, we know you might have heard that many times, but this essential first step has to be emphasized again. There can be no solid and good feng shui energy in a space that is infected by clutter, the two of them cannot co-exist; it is either one or the other.
LIVING ROOM LOCATION AND LIGHT
In feng shui, the living room should be located in a part of the house that has at least two outside walls. Avoid using a room nestled deep inside your home for a living room space. The ideal living room location allows chi energy to enter the room from outside without being slowed down or allowed to grow stagnant from moving through many rooms in order to reach the living room. This placement ensures that the chi energy is fresh and energetic enough to activate the living room elements. The living room shall be sunny and bright. The bright living room will bring prosperous family luck to the family. The dark colors shall be avoided in the decoration of the living room, or it will bring bad luck to the family.
LAYOUT SHOULD BE RECTANGLE OR SQUARE
The overall layout of the living room shall be a rectangle or a square rather than the irregular or polygonal spatial pattern. The square living room will improve your luck in terms of both blessing and wealth, and also make the infinite positive energy staying in the home.
Never place furniture in natural pathways through the room. This type of placement will block chi energy, cause it to become stagnant, and create negative energy.
The main piece of furniture in a living room is usually the couch, which should rest against a solid wall. Currently, one of the popular western furniture arrangements is to place the seating group in the middle of the room without any wall support. This is called a floating arrangement and should be avoided. The floating arrangement is an improper feng shui furniture arrangement. Just as your bed should be anchored against a solid wall, so should your couch. This gives support to those living in the house and prevents instability in your family structure of home life, work, wealth, health, and relationships.
FIND BALANCE IN SPACE
Feng shui is all about health, balance, and harmony, and we need all 5 feng shui elements in our environment in order to thrive and be happy. So, good feng shui in your living room is based on a subtle dance of all colors and shapes, with two or three taking the main stage based on the feng shui bagua requirements.
PUT YOUR PERSONAL TOUCH
While you want your living room to follow feng shui basics, you also want it to reflect your personal tastes. Don’t be afraid to add your personal touches. Your room doesn’t need Chinese furniture, objects, or symbols in order to follow feng shui principles. The true feng shui principles are about form and placement, not good luck symbols. If you apply sound these feng shui principles and rules to your décor, you’ll have a very auspicious living room.
