With the right approach, it’s possible to bring positive energy into your bathroom. It’s believed good feng shui brings happiness and success to your life, which you can do with this guide to creating a feng shui bathroom, by keeping the room organised and choosing suitable decor.
What Is a Feng Shui Bathroom?
Feng shui, meaning “wind and water”, is the concept of people living in harmony with their surroundings. Applied to bathrooms, it means creating a comfortable and relaxing room that enhances your overall wellbeing, and in which you enjoy spending time.
A bathroom with good feng shui should have positive energy flowing in from the other rooms in the house. Ignoring the bathroom will disrupt your home’s overall energy.
A little mindfulness, whatever your budget, will help you create your own home spa-like retreat that’s both functional and luxurious.
Keep Your Bathroom Tidy
A clean, tidy and orderly bathroom is the simplest way of banishing any negative energy, which means you should always strive to avoid any uncleanliness and untidiness.
The less items in your bathroom, the easier it is to keep it in order. So think about whether you need lots of ornaments or pieces of decoration placed around the room.
If you have a busy bathroom due to a hectic lifestyle — perhaps you have a big family — try to find organisational solutions that keep items stored away and out of sight.
Storage solutions are great for keeping the room orderly and clutter to a minimum.
Feng Shui Bathroom Color Ideas
Greens and blues are the perfect feng shui bathroom colours, because together they represent water, purity, life, new growth and beginnings.
White is a popular colour because it represents cleanliness and purification. It’s also sleek and bright, which is why it’s a popular colour for most household bathrooms.
How Do Mirrors Affect Bathroom Feng Shui?
After showers, baths, sinks and toilets, mirrors are perhaps the most important bathroom item. When renovating, contemplate how a mirror will affect the room’s energy.
Mirrors are often placed outside bathroom doors to stop bad energy entering the room, while experts suggest avoiding placing mirrors directly opposite toilets, for obvious reasons.
The idea is to make the room flow well, so use common sense as to how your bathroom feels, as you should do when redesigning any area of your home.
Feng Shui Bathroom Plant Ideas
Air-purifying plants placed in the bathroom are ideal for bringing in positive feng shui, with lush evergreens being simple to maintain and the perfect fit for a home’s dampest room.
Remember that superficial adjustments won’t help, so it’s important to think holistically, carefully considering the energy created by each element of your home.
