We’ve all heard people throw out the phrase “Feng Shui” when talking about home decorating. But what does it really mean?

Well, to briefly summarize, Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art that emphasizes the importance of the energy of the land, known as chi.

You can use Feng Shui to decorate your home in a way that will provide the most energy and good fortune to you and your family. All of the rooms in your home can benefit from Feng Shui, including your bathroom.

Here are some Feng Shui tips to follow when thinking about bathroom remodeling:

  • When thinking about appliances and furniture to put in your new bathroom, simplicity is key. Feng Shui follows the belief that cluttered spaces create bad energy and bring bad luck to those who inhabit them. Filling your bathroom with simple, smaller appliances will create a clean, open look that allows energy to pass freely.
  • Install a window if you can. A window will let natural sunlight beam into your bathroom. This sunlight is great for creating a positive energy.
  • Create your own lighting if you cannot install a window. You want to design a bright, glowing, yet soft and simple light scheme in your bathroom.
  • Make sure you fix or repair any leaky pipes, as these are a symbol of wastefulness in Feng Shui. You should also be sure to always cover any drains when they are not in use, as well as keeping the toilet lid down and the door closed whenever possible. These all promote good energy.

You should look for a bathroom remodeling company that can create this simple, peaceful, functional design for your bathroom.
