If you are looking for ways to induce positive energy in your house, then is Feng shui the answer! Read along to know how.
Contrary to a popular belief that Feng Shui is a recently discovered decorating method, Feng Shui is a philosophy, that has been existing years and decades ago. The literal meaning of the word Feng is ‘wind’ and Shui is ‘water’. This comes from an ancient poem and reflects upon how human life can be ideal if we connect and live in flow with the environment around us.
This whole philosophy revolves around balance, harmony, and positive energy. It says that our environment has a profound effect on the way we behave, how we think, what we say, and our feelings at a subconscious level. That’s why it’s very important to think about how we can maximize both purpose and positive energy in our house.
One of the spaces in your home that is important for health, happiness, and wealth is the kitchen. A kitchen is a place where you can create good energy and make it a calming space full of positive chi.
“Fire attacks the heart”, that’s how a Feng Shui expert will describe a kitchen that is centrally located in the house. As the kitchen is filled with fire, this can cause instability and health issues.
As you might have guessed, color is an important element in Feng Shui. Consider neutral colors and soft hues as your main used colors but you can always add an accent color that pops out to bring that energy.
In Feng Shui, red represents romance, courage, and passion. But on the other side, red is the strongest color representation of the fire element, which supports life energy that’s why the color red must be used carefully and in a variety of spaces. So yes, if you’re absolutely a red color-lover, you can use red in your kitchen but only as an accent color as it’s an energizer and an appetite stimulant.
Some kitchen rules follow the classic rules we know from the design world, like the kitchen triangle. Feng Shui has the same principle of the work triangle where the oven, the refrigerator, and the sink are placed. This principle has been not only used by Feng Shui practitioners but by the most kitchen designer. The only difference there is in Feng Shui that is less known by any normal designer is to avoid having your oven positioned so that you cook with your back to the door.
