Please take the time to read all the way through this article, and so discover how you too can enjoy peace and harmony in your home.

Harmonious interrelationships geared towards the comfort of people will always be a paramount consideration in any Feng shui design, everything else coming secondary. To get a grasp of this principle here are tips for the home.

The bagua map must guide the distribution of objects and furniture around the house. This is done to determine the areas where they belong. These should also be done in harmonic quantities because in Feng shui objects represents a symbol of an element. Over distribution of one item could upset a balance that we are trying to achieve.

Couches, beds, chairs should be placed in such a way that those who are sitting or lying on them should have an unobstructed view of the door. The beds head board and the chairs especially those which the head of the family usually use must always be placed against a solid wall.

Shapes evoke different feelings in us. The choice of accessories should elicit pleasant and cheery feelings.

Colors have to be chosen with care. Even in conventional interior decorating, colors represent a particular mood. This is also very true with Feng shui. The difference may lie mainly not on what is the current trend and looks pretty and modern. Rather, the choice of color has to be done to achieve a balance with the temperament of the occupants.

The unobstructed flow of chi is very important. There should be no obstructions on pathways, doors and entry points like gates. Avoid structures in front of entranceways, rocks, gardens and shrubbery that will distract your line of vision. In fact avoid living in a house with a tall building in front of it or trees where the branches points towards your direction.

There should also be no exposed beams and dark corners and areas in the house, as these will disturb the flow of the chi.

Mirrors are to be placed in areas where you would want particular views in the house to be reflected. Mirrors though should not be placed directly at the foot of the bed.

Avoid clutter. Clutter disturbs the flow of energy inside the house. Clean screens and everything else where the house gets its ventilation. Avoid also leaving sleepers and shoes on the doorsteps.

The house should be very well ventilated and the air coming into it must always be fresh and clean. For this reason, open the doors especially the bedroom doors for as long as possible. You would not want stale air from circulating inside it. The dust that you are avoiding will never be enough justification for the rewards of good ventilation.

Fu dogs are symbols of safeguarding the home. Place Fu dogs at both sides of your front door.

Watch out for poison arrows. These could be represented by sharp or pointed objects that are directed either towards the house (if the objects are coming from the outside) or of protrusions, sharp turns and corners in the house.

Whenever possible, do not allow a path in your house or in the garden that is straight. This in Feng shui is the path of the demon.

To achieve a harmonious kitchen, do not place the stove, refrigerator, and kitchen sink too close to each other.

Green also represents harmony. Placing a green carpet or rug will enhance harmonious relationships. In fact bring plants inside the house and give them good care. It will prevent unnecessary clashes and conflicts.
