A home should be a place where, at the end of the day, you can unwind and relax. It should be a comfortable and happy environment. That’s why we gathered some feng shui tips for comfort so you can start making your home more comfortable forever.
Feng Shui Tips for Comfort
Starting off the feng shui tips are these color suggestions. Typically when talking about feng shui color, it’s broken down into five different natural elements: earth, fire, water, wood, and metal. The reason these are so important is how organic they are—we naturally connect with them.
- Earth: Using earthy colors like brown, green, yellow, and more neutral colors brings us down to Earth and makes us feel connected and comfortable.
- Fire: These colors are both motivating and comforting: reds, oranges, pinks, etc. These are “fire” colors. Do not overuse these colors, since they are very stimulating.
- Water: Water is all about flow. The colors associated with water are all smooth and soft, designed to make the whole place feel comforting. Apply navy blue, charcoal, and green in your home.
- Wood: The purpose of wood is to soothe. It represents riches and things that are new. It can be comforting for us to live in a place that feels accomplished. Light blues and greens are associated with wood.
- Metal: Whites and grays are good “metal” colors. Apply these colors for creative drive and comfort.
For your bathroom
There’s a lot of talk about the position of your bathroom and what that has to do with bad feng shui. Obviously, there’s not much you can do about the position of your bathroom. However, if it’s in a location you don’t deem ideal, there are still things you can ultimately alleviate the bad feng shui energy using these feng shui tips for bathrooms.
Firstly, and most importantly, keep your bathroom clean. This should be common sense, as your bathroom is a breeding ground of all kinds of nasty bacteria and viruses. It also acts as a natural energy source, alleviating stress and making you more comfortable.
Natural light and natural senses are always comforting, so using lightly and naturally scented candles in your bathroom will greatly improve the overall feng shui feeling of comfort. You should also try appropriately positioning rely flowers and plants—they essentially act as air-purifiers.
Make sure to keep your bathroom door closed at all times. Keeping it open can have a negative impact on your home.
The front door to the living room
Making your home more comfortable starts at the front door. “The mouth of chi,” as the front door is called, is vital in the feng shui process because that is where your house absorbs energy. A truly comforting house doesn’t focus too much on the living room or the bedroom, but starts with the first thing you see when you walk in.
For example, if the first thing you see when you walk in is the bathroom, again, make sure the door is closed.
Typically, the living room is the first room you see when you walk in. Nine times out of ten, that’s where the front door is. You want it to feel like you’re walking directly into a comforting environment. Since it’s one of the busiest parts of your home, maintaining a comforting feng shui is especially important.
Think about the bagua areas of the room. Now, apply the feng shui tips for colors we talked about before, like Earth and metal. These two colors can both be applied to your living room at once, because bagua areas are all about separating the different areas of your living room.
You can either apply earthy tones to the whole room, or Earth on one side and metal on the other.
