How to Bring Feng Shui Into Your Home, Kailua, Hawaii

Feng shui is an ancient Chinese art form designed to maintain the energy flow and balance in residential and commercial buildings. Spaces designed and decorated with feng shui in mind are believed to promote feelings of calm and happiness. If you feel out of sorts or frustrated whenever you set foot in your house, use the following tips from the team at Tradewind Hawaii Inc. The Kailua Kona-based company specializes in custom cabinets, kitchen appliances, windows, and other interior and exterior features that make up a comfortable home.

Here is how you can bring harmony and balance to your household:

Remove All Clutter

Clean your home, so it’s free of clutter. Piles of stuff strewn around each room interrupt energy flow and feed stress and frustration. You’ll feel lighter and happier once excess items are gone from your residence.

windowsIncorporate the Five Elements

Look around to see which elements of feng shui are most prominent in your home. The five elements are metal, water, wood, earth, and fire. Each represents something positive, such as passion (fire), growth (earth), and wisdom (water). Promote balance within your home by incorporating objects representing these elements, such as a small water fountain, stainless steel kitchen appliances, and candles.

Add More Light

Bring more light into your home, whether through full-spectrum lights or using lighter curtains instead of heavy drapes. Keep your windows open as much as possible to encourage the flow of energy, and add plants to keep the air free of toxins. All plants purify the air but some, such as spider plants, feature extra air-cleaning powers.

Rearrange Your Furniture

Feel the flow of energy in your home by rearranging the furniture. Get rid of whatever you don’t need to avoid clutter and keep the centers of each room clear save for low coffee tables and similar pieces. Avoid arranging furniture with their backs to windows or doors because this is thought to encourage negative energy and make residents feel uncertain. Look for furniture with rounded corners, such as a round table, to encourage conversation.

Rethink Your Entryway

Keep the entryway and hallways clear to welcome energy into your home. You can also promote positive energy flow by maintaining the steps or path leading to your front door and place a water fountain at the entrance.
