2019 is here now, and what better way to start off this year than with improving the Feng Shui of your living rooms. As the most publicly used space in any home, it’s crucial to design it in a way that enhances the flow of positive energy and brings good luck for the rest of the year. Here are 5 tips to get you started on this journey:
1. Avoid all sorts of gloomy
The one thing that kills off any good vibes instantly in most homes is gloominess. Therefore, having adequately sized windows that let in ample sunlight is a great way to start improving the Feng Shui of your living areas. Not only can it make the space look fresher, but it can also bring you a lot of good luck and positive inspiration. It’s definitely a good way to start the new years.
2. Square-rectangular layout
Feng Shui is all about wholesome shapes like squares and rectangles. But the catch here is that most Singaporean homes have open-floor plans so it can be hard to emulate this aspect of positive energy flow within your designs. You can work around it by arranging your furniture layout in a way that gives the illusion of an enclosed space. For example, a cleverly oriented L-shaped sectional can make the space look closed off.
3. Proper layout and furniture selection
The positive flow of energy requires you to be cognizant of your living room layout and furniture selection the most. All the storage cabinets and shelving’s have to cling to the wall, so floating media consoles or wall-to-wall cabinetry are a requisite. Similarly, the couch must always face the television and must not have its back to any of the open space.
4. The floor restraint
Just like everything else in the living room, the floor design also has to be carefully implemented. It’s best to avoid any uneven levels as they are said to disrupt the flow of good energy. They are said to affect the ups and downs of a family’s luck. Instead, keep everything as simple and sweet as possible. The floor can be at the same level as the rest of the house and still look trendy.
5. The oblique wealth area
The wealth area is located adjacent to the living room space, and must be designed in a totally tranquil and calming way. This means that there shouldn’t be any overwhelming décor here, and neither shall it have any noisy aspects such as water dispensers, etc.
