It is never easy moving into a new space, especially when you are used to having every single item in a usual spot. Sometimes it takes a stylish remodelling or two to find the right balance, particularly in a home. In the case of commercial spaces, it is not just your opinion that counts, but that of the clientele as well. A notable style that has wowed interior designers is the Feng Shui practice.

Feng Shui

So, what is so pragmatic about this ancient Chinese practice? Well, for one, it has to be said that the ‘chi’ or energy is often a positive one. Also, there is a balance as well, because space is utilized while following a guideline that is dependent on certain elements

Elements

So what are the elements that this interior design style utilizes to create a pleasant atmosphere? They are listed as:

  • Metal
  • Fire
  • Earth
  • Water
  • Wood

Basically, the position of each of the items that embody the aforementioned elements needs to be in a commanding position to make the whole concept work. There are items that are more important than others. For instance, in a bedroom, a bed is a large piece of furniture as compared to say a chair. Its positioning is, therefore, more of a priority because, as per the Feng Shui concept, it represents you while a chair or desk represents your career.

The same applies to items throughout the house where a stove or cooker, is said to represent your wealth.
