What is Feng Shui?
Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese system of arranging the physical environment to create a harmonious balance between individuals and their surroundings. The goal is to promote well-being, prosperity, and good fortune. It is based on the idea that energy, or “chi,” flows through spaces. This energy can be enhanced or hindered by the way in which the environment is designed and arranged.
Here are some tips for feng shui-ing your bathroom:
A clean and tidy bathroom is essential in feng shui as it represents good energy flow. Ensure that your bathroom is well-maintained and free of clutter.
Use calming and soothing colours in the bathroom, such as blue, green, and white, to create a peaceful atmosphere. You can bring colour into your bathroom on your walls, your tiles, or your furniture.
Good lighting is important in feng shui. So, ensure that your bathroom has adequate natural light and that you have a good mix of task and ambient lighting.
Ensure that the toilet, basin, and shower are positioned in such a way that they are not facing the door, as this is considered bad feng shui.
Incorporate natural elements into the bathroom, such as plants, wood, and stone, to help balance the energy and create a harmonious atmosphere.
Ensure that you have adequate storage in your bathroom to keep it clutter-free, as clutter is believed to block the flow of energy.
Water is a key element, so ensure that the water in your bathroom is flowing freely and that the taps are in good working order.
