When you move into a new house, it can take a while until the place really feels like home to you. Luckily, you can borrow a few ideas from the ancient Chinese philosophy of feng shui to make your new house cozier. Feng shui is a system of utilizing certain elements and arranging things in your home in a way that helps you feel more comfortable and calm in your home. Here are some tips that may help.
Plants are an easy way to bring the beauty of nature into your house. Not only that, but some plants can provide real health benefits. Some plants, such as the peace lily, can remove harmful chemicals like benzene from the air in your home. Other plants, such as the areca palm, can provide all of the daily oxygen your body needs. Because your brain uses oxygen, you may find yourself feeling better just having that plant around.
Feng shui principles dictate that you put plants wherever you want to personally grow. For instance, if you would like to learn to cook, or cook more often for your family, the kitchen would be a great place for plants.
Use Classic Wind Chimes
Wind chimes can bring beautiful sounds into your home, but according to feng shui principles, they can also attract positive energy and abundance. Use wind chimes near your front door, and consider hanging them indoors as well.
For your front door, consider the warm tones of wood wind chimes, which can provide a soothing feeling as you approach and leave your home. In feng shui, metal wind chimes are best for north-facing rooms, or rooms that seem a little dreary for some reason. Their tinkling sound will make the room seem happier. Make sure to look around for classic wind chimes for sale.
Make Your Own Art
According to feng shui, when you have a connection with your home, you will feel better inside of it. One way to build this kind of connection is to make your own art.
You don't need to be a professional artist to do this. You can try your hand at painting or drawing, but you can also create a collage of your favorite images, or complete a puzzle and have it framed so you can hang it. If you have children, they will be more than happy to create some art that you can hang on your walls.
Even if you aren't sure that feng shui is for you, try out the above suggestions. You may be surprised at how much better you feel in your home when you use these tips.
Hi, I'm Victor Grayson. The bedroom is my sanctuary. After working at a labor intensive job all day, I look forward to falling into bed and relaxing.
