How to incorporate Feng Shui principles into your new home at Latimer Heights
May 15, 2019
The magic of feng shui is really more about mathematics than it is miracles.
In fact, the ancient Chinese art and science of feng shui take little more than the proper placement and arrangement of furniture at your Latimer Heights home and perhaps a little bit of tidying up.
Here are a few feng shui inspired ways you can transform your Latimer Heights home into a more peaceful and tranquil living space.
Colour can influence the way light enters a room, how a person sees, and ultimately, how they feel. Cool pastels are said to have a softer more feminine energy, while bright, warm colours are more masculine. The idea is to establish a balance between the two ‘yin and yang’ energies throughout your Latimer Heights home with wall paint and decor.
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Mirrors are an absolute must-have when it comes to incorporating the principals of feng shui into your new Langley home. They bring light, joy, and energy into any space. Face your mirrors toward the windows to reflect picturesque outdoor scenes.
Clutter is the enemy
To achieve a home that is both welcoming and peaceful, feng shui masters recommend you donate or sell any items that are useless, evoke negative feelings or serve no purpose. These might include gifts from exes, old newspapers and magazines, or gently used clothes.
Front door decor
In feng shui, the front door of your home symbolizes the mouth of chi (positive energy), so it’s important to remove shoes, coats, trash bags, or mail from your hallway. To boost the flow of good vibes even more in your Latimer Heights home, try placing a water fountain near your front door.
The key to your kitchen
Place lighting, greenery, or cherished belongings in the space above your kitchen cabinets and collect positive energy where dust and stagnant energy would otherwise accumulate. Hang chimes in your kitchen windows to evoke a sense of tranquillity.
Bedrooms are for sleeping
In addition to positioning your bed diagonally across the room from your bedroom door, it’s a good idea to cover the television when it’s not in use – or better yet, remove it from your bedroom altogether. The blinking lights aren’t conducive to a good night’s sleep and thus could have a negative impact on your health and wellbeing.
