Proper decoration and distribution can positively contribute to enhancing harmony and positive energy inside and outside the home, and in this sense, Feng Shui is a great ally. This ancestral philosophy advocates an organization of the elements that allows improving well-being and harmony through the circulation of energies. Its popularity has increased with the passage of time and, today, it transcends its place of origin, starring in many of the proposals for decorating homes around the world. Applied to design, there are certain keys to Feng Shui that, in a simple way, will help promote relaxation and balance at home.
1. Attract positive energy
The starting point of any home is the facade. This element is, without a doubt, the first claim for the viewer but also, it constitutes one of the scenarios to which Feng Shui pays special attention. The reason? Simple. A cozy interior full of positive energy starts from the entrance and, it is precisely the facade, the point from which you can begin to capture those good vibes. To achieve this, you must bet on a well-ordered and obstacle-free design that always looks its best. For example… no decaying or lifeless plants before entering your home!
2. Orden en la entrada
Behind the facade, the first stage that residents and visitors find once they have crossed the threshold of the door is the entrance. The hall is the starting point of any interior design and decoration project and, consequently, another of the scenarios in which you have to apply the Feng Shui mantras. As the beginning and end of your house, you must seek a perfect organization since, according to the philosophy of Feng Shui, chaos is detrimental to the flow of positive energy, a consideration that you can transfer to the rest of the rooms in the home.
3. The distribution of furniture
Considering that one of the principles of Feng Shui has to do with the circulation of energies, it seems logical to think that the furniture chapter occupies a fundamental place. Beyond its design, a house decorated following the guidelines of this discipline has to bet on a functional distribution that allows freedom of movement inside. Under a concept reminiscent of the principles of minimalism (which dispenses with all accessories), the furniture must be arranged as close as possible to the walls, avoiding, in any case, saturating the spaces.
4. Definition of spaces
In addition to harmony and balance, decoration based on Feng Shui pursues, in a way, relaxation. Therefore, among the considerations that you can not fail to include in your interior design project is the fact of clearly delimiting the spaces within the house. Although it is important for each room, it is especially relevant to define without error margin the areas intended for rest (bedroom) of others dedicated to work (such as a home office) since, otherwise, achieving this absolute relaxation will be difficult.
