No matter the size of your apartment, you can make just a few small, inexpensive changes to improve its “feng shui”, promoting harmony and balance without spending a lot of time. Here are a few tips from the Apartment Guide blog:
De-Clutter– Rid your space of anything that does not serve a purpose. Clearing out clutter in your apartment is a cleansing process necessary to promote a harmonious home.
Light– Proper lighting produces good feng shui energy, called “Chi.” Choose sources of light that are soft, comforting and relaxing. Open windows to let natural light in as often as possible.
Water– Water is believed to be an auspicious element, bringing wealth and prosperity. Consider bringing in a fish tank or aquarium to introduce an element of water into your apartment and promote greater fortune.
Plant Power– Bring elements of the outside into your inside space to promote balance and harmony of the elements. Choose low-maintenance plants that also provide an element of air purification, such as the Bamboo Palm or Rubber Plant.
The Trinity– Focus on the three elements of the feng shui trinity — the bedroom, the bathroom and the kitchen. The head of your bed should always be placed on solid wall to provide an element of strength and security, which leads to deeper sleep and more restfulness. Place a big mirror in the bathroom to increase energy and give the illusion of a bigger space. The kitchen should always be filled with plants or flowers to create an uplifting energy. Paint or decorate with accent pieces of yellow, as this color promotes digestion.
