Invest in basic housekeeping supplies
Kitchen organization is important in Feng Shui, and this applies to every room in your home. The kitchen is a great place to start. Start removing expired or unused items from your pantry and refrigerator, and throw away single-use utensils and tools that you never use. “Space equals opportunity,” Carter said. By getting rid of some things, you allow other things to come into your life.
It can be difficult to find the time and energy to clean and maintain your home when you have just finished a particularly hectic day at work or with various household responsibilities, but it is important to take care of your home, especially if you are planning a current residence live for a period of time.
Use feng shui to improve your home’s energy
Living plants bring life energy into your home. They will instantly add positive energy to your living room. Make sure your plants get enough light, water, space and love. Some of the best feng shui plants for living rooms include succulents, aloe vera, orchids, snakes, and peace lilies.
Feng Shui is all about energy—dispelling bad vibrations and welcoming good ones. Even if you think the concept of “energy” is bullshit (and the idea of hanging crystals is choking you), it’s worth looking at it from a more fundamental perspective. Do you feel comfortable at home? Or does it make you uneasy? This is energy.
Create cozy spaces with household items
There are several ways to make your house comfortable on a budget. Consider using natural materials or introducing warmer tones in your furniture, paint or decor – using warm-toned lighting and candles can also help create a cozy ambience for less money. When it comes to furniture and accessories, opting for dark wood over light can darken a space while maintaining an elegant feel.
A cozy home feels lived in, with the owner’s style throughout. However, it’s important to make the most of the space, so it’s not like a hamster’s den. Stuff should be functional, but with a touch of whimsy or sweetness.
