The concept of Feng Shui has been talked about and debated for decades. Some has called it superstition while the hardcore believers think it is a science. Whichever argument one sides, Feng Shui is actually a philosophical system and can be seen as a discipline that promotes balance and harmony in a specific space.

Feng Shui helps to balance your existence in your own space whether it is the home or the office. Taken from the Chinese phrase that means ‘Wind-Water’, Feng Shui helps to create a positive energy in your space.

Do you need Feng Shui?

Using Feng Shui depends largely on the needs of the situation. If you are giving your home a makeover, it would be best to engage an expert to help you determine how your objects should be placed and such. In fact, the master can help you to determine the color of the walls that are most suitable for you and on which direction the bed should face or the television should be placed.

The best option is to start understanding the benefits of having good Feng Shui and other advantages will follow. In Feng Shui, your home will be regarded to be one whole system where all parts are interconnected to create a positive living environment.

With good Feng Shui, you will find that you rest better and the living environment which governs the interaction between your family members is more effective and positive as well.

A holistic approach

When designing your home, you must ensure that all the spaces concerned are involved. This means that you need to view the home as a whole. Never neglect any space no matter how small they are. Many people make the mistake of ignoring the toilets or the store rooms because they are too small in size which they think are too insignificant.

Main area of focus

You must put more emphasis on the front door and consider if it is aligned with the back exit because that is where the Chi enters your home. Another area that must be heavily considered is the bedroom because that is where you rest and if that is the master room, is where all the energy will be focused on.

One rule of thumb when renovating is to clear the clutters around the house. If you have a table with edges protruding or the couch seemed to be out of place, perhaps you should consider changing or replacing them.
