Feng shui is an ancient Chinese philosophy that aims to create harmony and balance within the home. The feng shui guidelines are based on five elements: earth, water, fire, wood, metal. It’s important to understand how these principles interact with each other to create a feng shui-friendly environment. This article will give you some essential tips for decorating every room of your house so that feng shui can promote good energy flow throughout your home!

Basic Feng Shui Rules Regarding Home Placement

Feng shui principles applied to construction, property location, and interior design are sensible and practical common sense instructions that aren’t arbitrary superstitions. Before constructing or planning a new house, follow the following guidelines.

  • Avoid building directly on an “invisible line” that divides good from bad Feng Shui.
  • Orient the house toward the north for better feng shui luck and prosperity. In general, living areas should be placed on the south side of a home or apartment with bedrooms located to the north end facing away from street traffic.        
  • Avoid feng shui blocking the front door. Make sure that windows, balconies, or furniture do not interfere with entrance feng shui flow.
  • Don’t Build Near a Power Station feng shui rules suggest avoiding homes built near power stations as they can promote bad luck and health issues.
  • Feng Shui rules suggest that feng shui should be applied to the building as a whole, not just individual rooms. It also needs to take into account how different parts of the home or office are positioned within their environment including features like roads and neighbor’s homes.

Be organized and tidy

An organized home is a better place to live in than an unorganized one. A disorganized home is a breeding ground for stress, depression, and unhappiness, it could be argued that designers including professional organizers have already established what will happen if you don’t keep your place neat. That being said people aren’t always sure how best to go about achieving order in their space so I am going to give suggestions here:

  • When helping out with feng shui make sure every dust bunny has been chased away.
  • Get rid of any clutter immediately either by throwing away items no longer used frequently enough OR using containers well stocked within reach spaces where possible such as kitchen cupboards.
  • Organize your stuff by putting things together (and please note feng shui is not all about organizing with containers).
  • Include feng shui items to attract positive energy into your home.

Keep your bed away from the window

Keep your bed away from the window to prevent feng shui energy from leaking out of the house. This is one of Feng Shui’s most important rules because it has a direct impact on your health, relationships with other people, and overall happiness! It also helps to keep bad energy away so that you’ll have a more restful sleep at night which in turn will improve your mood too.

Separate work and rest areas

Separate work and rest areas to prevent feng shui energy from mixing and creating chaos in the household. It may be difficult to maintain this rule because you can’t always control where your family members work or rest but do your best!    

If feng shui energy mixes it’s more likely to cause problems with the household which can lead to stress, illness, or even divorce!

Separate work and rest areas are essential feng shui rules because they help keep feng shui energy balanced in your home by preventing chaos from occurring between different activities that take place at each area of your house. It’s important not only for feng shuis but also for general health purposes!

Know your colors

Know your colors! It’s always a good idea to decorate your home with colors that you love. But if feng shui is something new for you, talk to someone who knows what they are doing before painting every room in your house red or orange!  These colors have feng shui energy that can be too intense for some people.

Interior and Exterior Feng Shui Rules

By incorporating elemental Feng Shui elements throughout our homes, we can create harmony, peace, and prosperity through feng shui. Interior and exterior feng shui rules you can incorporate into your home will help free up chi energy by applying basic Feng shuis like using wind chimes near areas where you spend the most time working to help improve concentration and fountains on either side of doors to boost this positive energy. By incorporating elemental Feng Shui elements throughout our homes, we can create harmony, peace, and prosperity through feng shui.

Entry Foyer

Entry Foyer Fengshui decorating ideas include hanging a wind chime near the entrance to improve concentration, or adding fountains or plants on each side of entrances for good luck and prosperity! You can also place flowers in strategic areas around your home (like coffee tables) to boost this positive energy. 

Living Room

Maintaining the feng shui of your living room is one of the most important rules for decorating. Not only is the feng shui of this room important to consider, but also where you place your furniture and what colors you choose for your walls.

Earth feng shui brings harmony into the home, so try decorating with large plants like bamboo. And don’t forget about windows – they are key elements of every Feng Shui corner of feng shui! Whether you have a corner in your bedroom, living room, or office where the walls meet up with the ceiling and floor (or even if it’s just an area of about six square feet), this is known as the Feng Shui corner Feng.

The living room feng shui concept requires a balance between yin (feminine) and yang (masculine). For example, if you place two couches in your living room facing each other, this will create an unbalanced flow of which could result in arguments among family members or friends who sit on the couches.

Dining Room

The Feng shui food in dining rooms should be cooked and eaten with friends, not consumed alone. It’s also a good idea to add fountains or evergreens near windows that face exterior doors because these areas are associated with prosperity. 

Metal element a chandelier is the perfect feng shui for a dining table!


Kitchen feng shui can also be especially powerful for creating harmony and balance within your home, as it is the place where food is prepared. In feng shui, kitchens are considered an earth element because they have a lot of storage – cupboards – that keep items grounded in one spot so you should never put heavy objects near these areas to prevent them from toppling over.

The kitchen feng shui concept is all about being practical and functional, so keep that in mind as you decorate your space with colors such as blue or green (for water), white (metal), and earth tones like brown or beige.  

Family room feng shui rules      

The fire element, feng shui should be balanced in this room to avoid arguments.

The family room is a great place to spend time together with your loved ones. It should have enough seats for everyone in the home, and it’s decorated using five-element colors that will resonate with you based on what kind of energy you’re trying to cultivate within this space! Place an earth-toned rug right in front so visitors feel grounded while they visit – this allows them also to connect their energies by standing near its grounding influence (which we all know helps keep things running smoothly).

According to feng shui experts, closets should be placed opposite any windows or doors. This will prevent its energy from flowing out into other areas of your house which can cause instability in relationships. Furthermore, feng shui consultants also suggest keeping all colors neutral to promote relaxation when trying to sleep at night. Try staying away from bright reds or greens because they are considered to be high-energy colors.

Balanced feng shui requires both yin (feminine) and yang (masculine) energies. Therefore it’s important to make sure all bedroom furniture reflects this concept with an equal amount of masculine/feminine items present.

Water elements (like a fish tank) can promote good relationship luck too!

Home Office   

Avoid putting a desk or table next to a window facing outside as that can lead to too much feng shui energy flowing out of your home. Try and face the window inside instead so you have more control over what feng shui energy is coming in vs going out.

When thinking about where to place furniture, try not to use square tables because these are associated with stability which isn’t ideal for an office setting. Instead, opt for rounder shapes like ovals since they’re good feng shui symbols of unity and progress.


It’s important to follow the feng shui rules when redecorating your bathroom because this is where you start and end each day. For example, if your mirror faces the toilet or bathtub then energy can’t flow freely throughout your home. Bathroom feng shui rules should be carefully considered because feng shui in a bathroom is linked to gain and loss of money. 

Feng shui experts also believe that color is important when it comes to the bathroom because this area of your home can affect health and positive energy flow in other areas of your house if done properly. Try using warm, natural tones like browns or earthy greens instead of bright reds or oranges.

It’s feng shui tradition to place a mirror near the front door to promote wealth and prosperity, so make sure you have one in your bathroom too. However, it should be noted that feng shui mirrors can’t face doors or windows.


If you want to create harmony in your home, feng shui experts recommend that you do not place the bed next to a closet (or anywhere near it). If possible, try placing both the bed and closet on different sides of the room. This feng shui placement is the best for bedrooms.


Feng shui for hallways needs to be balanced as well because the energy of a hallway flows through every space. Hallway feng shui should not have any sharp turns or dead ends. Instead, it should follow a path that is straight and open so the feng shui energy can continue flowing smoothly throughout your home.

Entryway or Hallways – Wood element, which also supports good health luck! Plant ferns here to promote growth.

There are several different types and variations, but this particular one has a single water element in each compass direction (north, south, east, west). This symbolizes life energy and prosperity flowing to all parts of the house – it’s important for every room! The center space is recognized as “the place where we live” or our main living area.
