The Lunar New Year celebrations may have passed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate the elements of feng shui into your home anymore. This concept serves as a guide to channeling positive energy and instilling peace and tranquility into your home. Many beginners, however, get it wrong when they design their home interiors.
In today’s post, the bathroom remodeling pros at i Remodel & Design discuss the common design mistakes you should avoid to make your home more feng shui.
Failure to Remove Clutter
Many homeowners don’t like it when they throw away stuff that they may miss one day. Decluttering, however, is an important part of implementing feng shui into your home. A clean slate is required.
Wrong Placement of Fixtures
Feng shui wants you to always be safe at home no matter what. You shouldn’t let anyone come in and surprise you from behind, which is why you need to always see who is coming in and out. With that in mind, your pieces of furniture like your sofa or desk chair must face entryways. When this won’t work, consider placing mirrors to help you see who’s behind you.
Focus on Creating a Perfect Interior
The aim of feng shui is to establish elemental balance throughout your interior. You want to steer clear of the mindset of decorating with precious furniture on which you would feel guilty sitting. Even with feng shui, you still have to treat your home like it’s made to be lived inside.
Overuse of One of the Five Elements
A crucial part of feng shui home design involves showcasing the five elements of wood, water, fire, metal and earth. It won’t work for you if you only prefer one or two of them, especially if you want to create a comprehensive color palette. Metallic shades, for instance, make the interior look tense.
