Feng Shui your Home: Easy Ways to Attract Positive Energy

By  |  0 Comments

We’ve all heard the term “Feng Shui”, but do you know what it actually means, and how you can bring it to your home? We spend more time in our houses than anywhere else, so it’s important to create a happy, healthy space that we want to return to. Read on for our guide to the ancient Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui and how you can introduce it into your abode…

What is Feng Shui?

Literally translated, Feng Shui means “wind water” – wind scatters energy and water holds energy. It’s all about living in harmony with our environment. The aim is to encourage positive energy, or chi, into your home so that your life feels balanced. Feng Shui actually charts that balance through scientific calculations, so it’s specific to each space – but there are general guidelines you can follow. 

Front Door and Hallway

Let’s start with your front door. To follow the principles of Feng Shui, you must make sure it’s in perfect condition. Your front door represents wealth, so try placing a beautiful evergreen plant either side to encourage positive energy. As you step into the hallway, remember that this is the place for the energy in your home to gather. It represents opportunities, so it needs to be free of clutter and well lit. Hide away coats and shoes in a cupboard and decorate with a mirror and flowers to uplift the space.

Commanding Position

The Commanding Position is one of the most important principles of Feng Shui. When you are in a commanding position, you are in the best position to receive positive opportunities. It needs to be applied to the location of your bed, desk and stove. Your bed represents you, the desk your career and the stove your wealth. When you are lying in bed, working at your desk or cooking at the stove, you should be able to see the door, but you mustn’t be directly in line with it. 


The kitchen is the most important room of the house and in Feng Shui it represents your nourishment and relationship harmony. When designing your kitchen, make sure you don’t place the cooker and the sink opposite each other – Feng Shui principles state the fire and water crash can lead to arguments between couples. The positioning of your stove is important – you need to also ensure it’s not under a window or opposite the front door. Avoid too much black or red in the room, as this can also cause the fire and water crash.


Bedrooms should be decorated in light, neutral colours and the bed should be placed against a solid wall. Bedside tables either side provide support and candles introduce a romantic energy. 

Garden and Windows

The front garden represents your future, while the back garden symbolises health and wealth. Both should therefore always be kept in good condition, with beautiful flowers. You should clean your windows regularly, as they symbolise the eyes of an adult and the voice of a child. Clear windows let in more sunlight, which energises us and makes our homes more vibrant.
