We continue with the special of Feng shui and this time we will talk about the room. The first thing you have to keep in mind is that the rules of a public space apply to this part of the house. In fact, if you think about it coldly, your lounge is the most public space from your home where visitors spend, while your bedroom would be against the most private space.
Stop a second and remember how the rooms of the people you know are arranged. The way to place the furniture They tell us if we are facing a modern, traditional, open or closed house, and so you must take it into account if you trust Feng Shui, since experts in this philosophy consider it the place where Chi should flow the most. Traditionally, the living room should be located near the entrance door and at the same floor level. If you think about it, it even has its logic since it is the place where the guests will pass by default.
Your preferred orientation is to the south and when decorating, you have to remember that it is governed by the elements Earth and Wood, which makes it possible to decorate with almost any shade on the walls, although most people opt for very traditional colors. The lighting should be soft, and a light directed towards the ceiling that creates a relaxed atmosphere is preferred. For curtains, choose natural fibers whenever possible.
The furniture should be placed whenever possible according to the shape of the bathtub, that is, forming a closed figure and without right angles so that the Chi You can move throughout the room without obstacles. If possible, the entrance door should be large for a large amount of Chi to penetrate and furniture should not be placed in front of it. The sofa is the most important element of the living room and must have a wooden structure but must be upholstered in noble fabrics such as cotton or wool. The optimal location is leaning on a wall from which you will see the whole room. Never place a sofa with its back to the door, as it can negatively influence the relationship with guests.
You should not center a table in the room, and if you have one dining table, Feng Shui indicates that it must be of one piece, large and light colored. Never place it between the window and the entrance door and avoid glass tables as much as possible. Whenever possible, upholster chairs and armchairs with natural fabrics.
On television, the different currents are not just agreed. If on the easternmost side of Feng Shui is an element totally negative which should be destined to the worst corner of the room, in the European tradition it is treated as one more appliance although it is recommended to unplug it while it is not used and hide it from view whenever possible.
