Decorating Your Roy Rental Property: Feng Shui Basics

Roy Feng Shui Living RoomHave you ever aimed to organize your Roy rental home to attract more positive energy but have no idea where to start? Why not try to use feng shui in your home décor? It’s easy to learn the basics of feng shui while helping you get the vibe you desire in your home.

What is Feng Shui?

Feng shui is an approach to arranging your living space that comes from Taoist philosophy. The concept is to use colors, shapes, and design to achieve a balance of five natural elements: earth, metal, water, wood, and fire. Every single of these elements is associated with different qualities. For instance, earth tones are connected to qualities such as self-care and nourishment, while metal is thought to invite feelings of joy. Water usually corresponds to wisdom and connectedness, while wood represents growth and healing. Finally, fire (and light) are thought to invite inspiration and passion into space. By using individual materials and positioning them in certain areas of your home, the thought is to empower the items in your home to work together to be in balance.

The Basics: Commanding Position

Aside from the elements, the commanding position is another of the basic components of feng shui. Significant items in your home need to be “in command” or placed in a manner that you feel at ease when you use them. The thinking goes that these key items represent you (your bed), your resources (your stove), and your path in life (desk). By placing them in command, you may identify more potential opportunities coming your way.

To place your bed, stove, or desk in the commanding position, locate the spot in each room where you can use the item easily and also be able to see the door. It ought to be somewhere that is not directly in line with the door but at a comfortable angle. By positioning important items in this way, the purpose is to make your subconscious mind relax so that you are more aware of what may be coming up next in your direction.

Feng Shui Room by Room

Using the principles of feng shui looks a little different depending on which room you are focusing on. Some of the most common areas that feng shui can make a big difference are the entryway, living room, bedroom, and kitchen.

  • Entryway: According to feng shui, entrances are very important because this is where energy enters the space inside your home. Sometimes referred to as the “mouth of qi,” keeping the threshold of your home clear and clean can help good energy flow more easily. To maximize the effect, sweep the entrance regularly, and be sure to give your door a good scrub regularly.
  • Living Room: To welcome enjoyable gatherings, bring in comfortable seating in your living room that faces inward. Avoid placing the back of any chair or sofa directly in front of a door. Insert pleasant green plants to boost the energy in the area and appeal to the wood element.
  • Bedroom: The first step to do in the bedroom is to put your bed in the commanding position. At the same time, do everything in your power to keep the space under your bed clear of clutter or other storage items. Add earth elements for nourishment and support, like earth-tone rugs or blankets.
  • Kitchen: To employ feng shui in the kitchen, keep your kitchen clean to attract more positive energy to your home. This includes inside your fridge and cupboards. If you can place your stove in the command position, do that. Afterward, supply your kitchen space with healthy foods and the five elements to give the space purpose and healing vibes.

By using the principles of feng shui, you can more easily lift the energy in your home to support the healthy, happy lifestyle you want.
