Feng Suggestions When Building a New Home
If you are fortunate enough to build a new home with either a custom builder or if you are able to modify a floor plan to accommodate the below 8 Feng Shui do’s and don’ts, you will be well on your way to having a healthy and harmonious life for you and your family. These are often over looked construction designs that end up harming the people living in them more than protecting them as a home should. A happy home does equate to a happy life!
- All beds, excluding guest’s beds, placed on a solid wall to put their headboards on as it creates for protection and support for the person in the bed and it is a very strong position to be in.
- Windows in all rooms with plumbing (bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchen) to allow for good ventilation.
- The entrance is the mouth of your home, the kitchen is the stomach (for input) and the bathrooms are your bowels (for output). Getting these main areas in the wrong placement can cause digestion issues so be sure to place the bath rooms past the kitchen, not before the kitchen.
- A home office should be in the front of the home because it is the more yang (energized) part of a home.
- Bedrooms, excluding guest rooms, should be in the back of the home because it is the more yin (calm) part of the home.
- Make your front door entry w i d e to allow for expansive opportunities.
- Make a solid curved walkway from your front door all the way to the street or sidewalk to allow good energy and opportunities to flow easily to your front door.
- Place your front door where it can be seen from the street so that all those good opportunities can find you. If your front door is not obvious, opportunities will pass you by.
- The stove should not be where you can see it from the front door as it could cause heart issues.
- A clear view straight out to the back yard as soon as you step in the home because where your eye goes so does all your money and energy!
- For two stories, a toilet directly above your front door as it could cause health and money issues.
- The stove and sink directly across from each other, same for the dishwasher as this will cause heated arguments in the household.
- Doors that clash with another door, including the dishwasher and stove, will cause clashing between family members.
- The front door with the back door (i.e. the Shot Gun homes in the south). Similar to #2, it is a freeway for everything good that enters your home to leave immediately.
- Beds placed in the path of the bedroom door is a very weak position and can cause major health issues.
- The electrical panel and Wi-Fi equipment near bedrooms, excluding the guest room, as this can cause health, anxiety and always feeling wired.
