Does Furniture Arrangement Matter in Feng Shui?

In regard to western practices of Feng Shui the answer is, yes. Why? Because the practice of Feng Shui will ADAPT itself to the lifestyle of each person and culture. Utilizing the discussion and implementation of furniture arrangement is one of the easiest first steps to establishing a strong foundation of Feng Shui. It also provides clients or anyone utilizing Feng Shui an opportunity to experience energy shifts immediately through the physical connection of their home. 


Below are 4 Simple Feng Shui Guidelines to consider when arranging furniture: 


  • Do not allow any furniture to block doorways leading into any room


  • Choose furniture (size/width/length/height and its design) that compliment the size of each room.


  • Become selective with how many pieces of furniture you keep within each room. In other words, what is the function of each piece? Or is the furniture just taking up space? 


  • Be sure traffic flow around the furniture is not blocking your walking pathway.


Keep in mind there are more Feng Shui guidelines to consider, yet this is a great starting point. 


This process requires you to be actively present and decisive while making these choices. Take a look at the floor plan diagram below.  Take a moment to adjust your "feng shui eyes" and review the layout.
