For this article, Tokyo Grand Renovation has gathered the easiest ways to incorporate Feng Shui to your home.
Feng Shui (pronounced “fung shway”) examines how the placement of things and objects within it affect the energy flow in your living environment, and how these objects interact with and influence your personal energy flow.

As you begin to discover more about Feng Shui, remember that you need to have an open mind and should use the methods that are most comfortable for your particular circumstances.
DEMYSTIFYING FENG SHUI
But before we share the easy ways to incorporate Feng Shui to your home, let us set the boundaries on what really is. It is common for people who are unfamiliar with this method may have some misconceptions and apprehension.
Feng Shui is not
- A get-rich-quick method of Asian interior design that guarantees impossible results for mystically rearranging your furniture
- A superstitious or magical belief system, or a New Age fad that disconnects you from reality or from your daily life
- A simple home and garden makeover
- A quick fix to be tackled in one afternoon
- A luxury only the rich and famous can afford
On the surface, Feng Shui is the simple interaction of humans and their environments. Taken a step further, Feng Shui enables you to influence these interacting energies to achieve specific life improvements. This influence is achieved by positioning or designing your surroundings in harmony with principles of natural energy flow. As a result, you (and your life) can achieve harmony with your surroundings. Feng Shui is practical and grounding, and it helps you right where you live and work.
Feng Shui is often referred to as the art of placement. How you place your furniture, possessions, and yourself within your surroundings largely determines your life experience at every level. Feng Shui offers a unique way of looking at yourself and your environment, and it provides a way of bringing balance, comfort, and harmony into your environment in a manner that is difficult to achieve by any other means.

What luck are you going to attract for your home decoration?
WHERE TO START
When you’re starting out, feng shui can be a bit overwhelming. You have your compass reading and, according to everything you’re reading, you have a lot of work to do to bring harmony to your home. Rather than get overwhelmed, take your feng shui decorating one step at a time.
To begin with, you need to clear your clutter. It’s the first key to allowing good energy flow, and you cannot continue with feng shui without taking this important step. From there, you can begin to apply color and shape theories, perfect your lighting and air quality, and work on other elements that improve the flow of Chi in your home.
COLOR AND PLACEMENT
Now that you’ve understood the basics, but still a little not ready to jump into the whole bagua and other elements, here is an easy way to attract luck at your home this year.
Fire and earth element decors should be avoided this year. Colors such as red, orange, purple, strong yellow and earthy tones such as terracotta, beige, light brown, light yellow are needed to be limited as much as possible.
It could be one of the best solutions for interior design if we take into consideration a few details and rules, which transform a white on white room in an extremely versatile and elegant design. A white on white room will tolerate and it will even require few accent colors. You can use any color or even more colors. It matches wonderfully with all the black and gray shades, it goes perfectly with shinny tones and it’s perfect for warm and vivid shades of red, green, orange, and blue. Everything must be used with measure because in a white on white room, any other color will become strong, intense and dominating. (The Chinese Zodiac)
FENG SHUI CURES AND SYMBOLS
Stepping beyond color, there are many other ways that you can create good energy in your home. These are often called feng shui cures and remedies, and through the simple placement of certain decor items, you can change the flow of Chi.
For instance, mirrors are powerful tools in feng shui. There are places that you want to avoid mirrors and locations where they can be very helpful. The same can be said for fountains, crystals, and plants.
Traditional feng shui schools also employ a number of symbols to cure feng shui. These include flowers, butterflies, and the mystic knot, and you can learn how to incorporate these into your decor. Each has a different meaning and purpose, so it’s also wise to study these as well. (The Spruce)
