How To Bring Feng Shui Into Your Home

We’ve all felt it. That frustrating moment when you come home from a long day of work to find your place cluttered and disorganized. Or perhaps there was a time when you felt claustrophobic and had to step outside for a bit. These moments of upset may be caused by a lack of feng shui in your home. But what is feng shui? Originating in China, feng shui is a series of guidelines that govern certain spatial arrangements to help promote positive energy. In short, it’s a great way to arrange your home to help you feel less cluttered throughout your day-to-day life. Understanding the principles of feng shui may be difficult at first, but here’s a few quick and easy tips to bring a little positive energy to your home. And remember, Bel Furniture has always promoted a strong sense of feng shui. Stop by today at a location near you or shop online to achieve a happy and healthier home.
Arranging The Living Room
When switching to a more feng shui friendly home, it’s imperative to arrange your living room in a more well-balanced manner. Since this is where your guests will spend most of their time, you should arrange the furniture so that it promotes conversation. The last thing you want is the seating to be spread out across the room. Ideally, the sofa should be push up against a sturdy wall. If this can’t be achieved, consider hanging a mirror across from the sofa so you can see behind you. This will help you feel more secure and control of your surroundings. And finally, make sure there is a clear walkway through the living room so you never have to divert from your path.
The Dining Room
First and foremost, when arranging the dining room with feng shui guidelines in mind, it’s best to choose a table that is neither too big or too small for the room. You don’t want your guests to feel crowded, nor do you want them to feel unbalanced with a tiny table and volumes of space around them. Try to find a healthy medium between these two extremes. As a starting point, choose a table in which a person can easily pass behind someone else who is seated. Also, dining room tables can often become neglected with accumulated piles of mail or junk. Try to keep this area clutter-free so everyone in your home can develop a more harmonious relationship with their surroundings.
The Bedroom
Bedrooms are perhaps one of the most sacred and personal spaces in your home. So it makes sense to bring a bit more positive energy into these areas. One of the ways you can achieve this is by positioning the bed as far away from the the bedroom door as possible, while still allowing the door to be seen while laying down. This will give you a better sense of balance and security. Also, consider removing all distracting devices such as televisions or radios. The bedroom is a place of rest, and sometimes these devices can hinder this crucial daily healing.


These tips are just a few of the many ways feng shui can transform your life and home. But the first step in achieving a perfect feng shui arrangement, is to find the right furniture. Luckily, there’s never been a better time to look for these complementary furnishings because our Memorial Day Sale has just been EXTENDED! Which means there’s even more to time to save big on all your favorite brands. Stop by a Bel Furniture near you or shop online to take advantage today!

Spring Cleaning

Spring has finally arrived! Full of bright colors, blooming flowers, and a rejuvenating spirit that seems inspire us all. It’s also the time of year where we rid ourselves of all the dust bunnies and clutter that seem to accumulate over the fall and winter months. Yes, indeed, there’s nothing quite like some good ol’ spring cleaning to help organize your home and clear your mind. It’s good for your health, your home, and can help promote peace and harmony, because there’s nothing better than a clean home to help you feel comfortable and centered. Although, it can be be quite an overwhelming task at times, this is why we’ve come up with a few helpful tips to get you in the mood for this year’s cleaning season!  

Organize Your Closets

I’m sure you’ve heard it before, but it really can’t be stressed enough--organization is key. Especially when it comes to your closets. Many times we forget about our closets because, well, they’re closets, and it’s easy to overlook an area that is behind closed doors most of the time. Although, it’s important to not underestimate how much we use them throughout our daily routine. Make sure to rid your closets of unused clothing and accessories to allow further accessibility. It’s also very helpful to organize your clothing by color to further promote a more efficient morning routine. By keeping your closets well organized, you can help your days run smoother and prevent you from feeling scattered or disorderly.


Clean The Easily Forgotten

This tip encompasses all those little filth-ridden areas you might of put off cleaning throughout the fall and winter months. Whether it’s the grout between the tiles, the hard to reach dusty places, or even the fine china that could use rub down, these are all the minor places we might forget to clean on a regular basis. You should start by making a list of all the possible areas that might need a little loving, then focus on one room at a time. These may seem like trivial odd jobs at first, but you’d be surprised of how all these little things can add up to make a noticeable difference.


Create A Different Mood

Spring cleaning shouldn’t just be about clearing out some winter-time clutter, it can be a great opportunity to bring in a fresh new look for your home! Don’t be afraid to mix things up a bit; reposition the furniture, layout some wallpaper, or even consider getting that new bedroom set you’ve always dreamed about, either way, this should be the time of year to reimagine your home! Having all your furniture and accessories stay in the same place all the time may eventually leave your family feeling drab or stagnant. By mixing things up every once and awhile, you can introduce a fresh and healthy vibe throughout the year.


Spring cleaning cannot only promote a well-balanced environment, it can help you fall in love with your home all over again. And when it comes to giving your living space a little T.L.C., nobody transforms your home better than the quality and comfy furnishings of Bel Furniture.
