Ways To Improve The Energy In Your Home

Decorating your home in a pleasing and practical manner can be a challenge. Not only do you have to worry about how your furniture, decorations, and housewares look but you also have to make sure that everything works on a functional level. The layout of your furniture may look nice but does it work with your family’s lifestyle? Does it flow from room to room? Knowing how to set up your furniture so that it improves not only your home but your life is no easy task. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were some helpful tips and tricks to setting up your home in this kind of pleasing way? Well if you know anything about anything chances are you’ve heard about Feng Shui!

 Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese philosophical practice that sets out to create an environment that harmonizes with its surroundings and the people in it. This practice or system literally translates to “wind-water” in English, signifying the flow and ease that is the system’s ultimate goal. Feng Shui can be applied to all the rooms in your home and even to your outdoor settings including your landscaping, patio furniture, fire pit placement, and more. Feng Shui is all about flow and how you relate to your surroundings.

While Feng Shui may seem like some mystical, spiritual, new-age technique that’s meant to open up your mind and free your life it’s actually very practical. It can also be overwhelmingly detailed. Getting a book on Feng Shui is incredibly important if you’re looking to get serious about it. A great place to do that would be at Barnes & Noble. It’s also possible to take a select few techniques that are more doable and apply them to your life. In this ancient Chinese practice it is believed that the entrance to your home is of the utmost importance. It is looked at as the first impression and the last, where you enter and where you exit. Things as simple as a door squeak do not get overlooked and if your front door squeaks that is not a great first impression! It’s important to rid your house of unpleasant annoyances especially ones that occur in the entrance way. So first things first, fix your squeaks!

Next let’s move on to another central part of anyone’s home – the kitchen! Anytime you have guests over or are hosting a party chances are the guests end up in the kitchen. For many it’s the center of a home, it’s where memories are made, and food is shared. So of course it’s incredibly important to make sure that your kitchen gets the full Feng Shui treatment A great way to do that is by placing plants above the kitchen cabinets. However if there’s no space above your kitchen cabinets that’s fine too! In Feng Shui it is believed that small spaces like this attract stagnant energy, as well as dust. If you’re having trouble finding a plant that will survive in your kitchen (this of course depends on what kind of natural lighting your kitchen has) fake plants or some form of lighting will do just fine. Another great way to improve your kitchen is by filing it with foods from Nutrisystem!

To get started on your Feng Shui project shop at Lowe’s for great deals on tools to fix door squeaks and plants to brighten up your kitchen’s energy. Again Feng Shui offers a lot of insight and technique to brightening up your home and by extension your life. Furthering your understanding of this practice and all it has to offer can be easily achieved by further online research and by buying books. Enjoy!
