Do you find yourself drawn to certain places in your home more than others? Is there an area where you feel particularly relaxed? Maybe it’s a nook in the bedroom or a reading chair in the living room. Odds are, its architectural features and its interior décor are in balance. Balance in a space signals safety and security which you feel on an unconscious level. When you feel safe, you can relax. Balance is the essence of Feng Shui. When good Feng Shui is coupled with good design, an environment is naturally cozy, relaxing, and appealing.
What makes a room cozy and comfortable?
1. Size of the room.
2. Ceiling height.
3. Proportion of windows to walls.
4. Amount of natural light.
5. Outside noise.
6. Floor plan.
7. Furniture Placement.
8. Interior Décor.
Although some of these qualities can’t eliminated, Feng Shui Design Principles can significantly change the feel of a room. Your choice of wall color, furniture arrangement, lighting, and furniture placement can transform a cold and uninviting space into a cozy, beckoning nest.
