Remember the Five Elements in Each Room
The five elements are water, wood, fire, earth and metal. One of the basic tenets of feng shui is to include all five elements in each of your rooms. Of course, this doesn’t have to be the literal element. Elements can be represented by colors, paintings, pillows, etc. A small dish of pebbles or an unlit candle can accomplish a lot. Try to make sure there are living things, like a green plant, in each room as well.
Keep Open Paths—Don’t Trap Space
You want to avoid disrupting the flow of chi throughout your home, which means all areas should be open, friendly and accessible both physically and to the eyes. This means avoiding high-backed furniture, rails, partitions and bulky furnishings, wherever possible. Eliminating unnecessary walls in your home can also really help improve feng shui.
