Feng shui is the art of improving the environment that you reside or work by making a series of changes to the color, layout and decor. There are a number of people that think of feng as being very mystical and hard to comprehend. You will discover professional consultants who specialize in customized analysis of an individual and their home. However basic feng shui principles are very easy to master and can easily be applied by anyone.
Have you ever been in a room that you just didn’t feel completely comfortable in? The reason is possibly the flow of ‘qi’ or energy in that room is blocked due to that layout. Feng shui can be used to free up that flow of energy. By doing so, the mood of the person who spends time in the room will likely change too. For example, a ton of clutter is a sign of the fact that energy isn’t allowed to flow freely. How can energy flow freely when there’s an accumulation of unnecessary stuff everywhere? The overall mood somebody experiences when living or working inside a cluttered space is stress and anxiety. The simple act of disposing of junk and reorganizing an area will cause an improvement in a person’s mood. Try doing that on a bigger scale by utilizing basic feng shui techniques and find out on your own what great changes you can experience.
Feng shui room by room to truly get the best out of the experience. Every room in your house serves a purpose therefore similar principles cannot be applied to all rooms. That being said, colors, furniture arrangement and decor should vary from room to room.
Feng shui colors depend on the mood that should be set for that specific room. Some of these principles are pretty common sense. For example, the bedroom is a place for relaxation and rest. The colors typically used should not be loud and overbearing such as a bright red or electric blue.

The room layout refers to the way in which furniture is arranged to increase the flow of energy. Specific decorations are also used to help with this task. Placement of furniture in a particular room will depend not only on the entire layout of a house, but also what purpose the room serves. Simple changes can be made to existing furniture and decorations. It’s possible you’ll discover that some may have to be moved around while others have no place in that room and should be removed. Start applying these easy principles for your home and see what amazing changes it will bring to your life.
