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.
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.
