Hello, there! Today we will talk about how important is the location or placement of the different parts of the house as we explore this striking bungalow that we are featuring today.
I hope you know what feng shui is. This is popular in most Asian countries because the practice started in China. Many of us believe in it while others don’t. Well, for those who believe like I do, here is a simple guide on how to feng shui your home.
The Spruce wrote “Feng shui is an ancient art and science that was formalized over 3,000 years ago in China. In literal translation feng means “wind” and shui means “water.” In Chinese culture, wind and water are associated with good health, thus good feng shui came to mean good fortune. Conversely, bad feng shui means bad luck or misfortune.”
The article also wrote “Feng shui is sometimes thought to be the art of placement—understanding how the placement of yourself and objects within a space affects your life in various areas of experience. It is a complex body of knowledge that teaches you how to balance and harmonize with the energies in any given space—be it a home, office, or garden.”
Let us take a look at the basic rules to feng shui a house by New Straits Time:
In general, the basic feng shui house rules tells us that the main door should be located in the most auspicious direction of the head of the family and it should not be aligned with other doors especially the back door. The main door is the entrance of good luck and once good luck enters, it should stay inside the home. But if there is a door that is aligned with the main door, the good energy is thought of to flow out easily unless there is something that blocks it. You may want to research on feng shui cures for a remedy in case your main door is aligned with your back door.
Since the kitchen is where we prepare and cook food and sometimes we eat there, it is one of the most important pillars of house feng shui.
Avoid positioning your kitchen at the front of your house or close to the front door as this can signify eating and nutritional problems, while it also encourages guests to leave promptly after eating.
Bedrooms should have enough sensual energy and be calming to promote sleep. Therefore, remove distractions like televisions, computers, exercise equipment, paperwork and clutter.
Bedrooms should be brightly-lit and have the right colours based on the bagua area and personal Feng Shui elements. For example, if you belong to the Wood element, it is best to avoid fiery colours like red and orange as they belong to the Fire element, and opt for blue and brown as they belong to the Water and Earth elements, respectively.
Bathrooms shouldn’t be facing the kitchen or the front door as they are considered bad Feng Shui. To promote positive chi in bathrooms, keep them spotless and clutter-free. Also, take efforts to beautify their aesthetics, including adding aromatherapy essential oils and plants.
It is not always necessary to display Feng Shui items like Chinese coins, bells, dragon ships and crystal ball fountains. They may look out of place, especially if you want a modern-looking decor.
Instead, basic Feng Shui is all about setting up your home layout to improve the flow of chi. You can have a home with strong Feng Shui energy without sacrificing a modern design style. Most importantly, keep your home clean, use the right colours, and make sure that there is plenty of light in your house to help balance Feng Shui energy.
There are feng shui cures for bad placement of the different areas of a home. You may research and read more on this next time.
So, here is how the floor plan looks like. As per feng shui rules, the position of the kitchen is against feng shui but this is because the house must have been designed for someone who does not believe in feng shue. There are cures though so it is not really a problem.
