Bring good luck and good vibes into your home by applying these feng shui rules to every single room at home.
Everyone wants to have a welcoming home full of positive energy or chi. Thankfully, you can achieve this without compromising on the design of the house. There is absolutely no need to have large golden shiny ornaments or adhere to an awful colour scheme for your house’s décor. Feng Shui in Mandarin translates to Wind and Water, basically, it means harmonising the Yin and Yang to create a balanced environment.
Follow these five simple rules to harness good Qi into your home.
Rule 1 – Declutter your home!
Here’s the basic principle of feng shui: declutter your house to make room for positive energy or chi to flow freely around the home. Keep the windows open so that the wind can blow freely in and out of the house. Keeping your house clean and tidy not only invites good vibes, but it would also improve the mood of you and your family.
Rule 2 – Allow good chi to flow into the living spaces
The living room is a place where friends and family gather, so ensure that the space is well lit, uncluttered and welcoming. Open the windows daily to allow good airflow into the space.

Rule 3 – Make your bedroom a sanctuary
The bedroom is meant for Yin activities such as resting and healing. I would recommend that you remove items like television, gym equipment, and other work items, as these things are considered as Yang items. The bedroom’s ceiling must be a square or rectangle shape with a good amount of height. The ceiling should be a flat surface because odd-shaped or slanted ceilings will cause negative and imbalanced energy, which could lead to restlessness.
Rule 4 – Keep positive energy flowing through the kitchen
The kitchen is very important to have positive energy flow as this is the place where we cook our daily meals. Whatever we feed ourselves will determine our general health. The placement of fire (the cooking stove) and water (the washbasin) is vital. Both elements should not be placed too close to each other as they clash, which may result in heart conditions for your home’s occupants. I recommend you have at least a 30cm gap between the stove and the sink. Otherwise, consider putting a plant in between both elements to mitigate the fire and water conflict.
Rule 5 – Boost productivity in the home office
The study room is intended for work, business, and/or academic pursuits. Therefore, creating a conducive environment is important to help you excel at the tasks at hand. You can enhance positive Qi circulation in this space by adding a catalyst such as a small aquarium or a small water feature. Avoid placing your work desk under a beam as this could result in unwanted stress and poor concentration.
