A happy home is every homeowner’s dream. Lucky for you that you don’t have to be a Feng Shui master to keep your home brimming with positive energy. If you don’t have much time to spare, here are some Feng Shui tips that you can quickly implement at home.

The less-is-more approach is dictated not just by today’s trends but also by Feng Shui. And while it’s only human to collect knick-knacks and keepsakes along the way,taking ten minutes everyday to declutter and getting rid of things you don’t need regularly can have divine benefits. So, if you haven’t done this in a while, set aside an afternoon to instantly feel the energy of your home improve.

Feng Shui tip #2: Clear your entryway

Feng Shui states that entryways and bright halls shouldn’t be obstructed by heavy racks, pottery and other objects. Bright Hall is of course the Feng Shui term for the space directly in front of your property. The reasoning behind this simple: it lets positive energy move smoothly into the home. A clean space also gives you a chance to make a good impression on your guests as this is the first thing they see.

Feng Shui tip #3: Something broken? Fix it!

Fix, mend, repair or if nothing works, replace! This should be your mantra when it comes to anything broken or not working in your home. Whether it is broken mirrors, a tear in the cushion or damaged appliances, all are said to collect bad energy. So, during your decluttering session, take care of these too.

Feng Shui tip #4: Let in fresh air

Open your windows for fresh air

Dimly lit homes with inadequate ventilation tend to feel stale, especially in Singapore’s humid weather. So, on a sunny day, take some time to open your windows. You can feel the magic instantly as you let fresh air and sunlight in. This Feng Shui tip takes the least effort but is very effective in bringing a refreshing and happy aura to your place.

Feng Shui tip #5: Organise well

When your home is a mess, finding little things can cause frustration and build negativity. And what better to give you inspiration for organization than Feng Shui? After all, Feng Shui is nothing if not the art of spatially arranging objects. So, move away from chaos and bring in discipline by organising your home. This doesn’t only refer to things you can see on the outside like decor on the table and open shelves but also your wardrobe, kitchen cabinets and closed storage.
