Renovation and repainting of homes when properly done is an excellent ‘rejuvenation” process to the building and in Feng Shui it is said that the Chi energy of the house is re-born and stagnation gets cleared.  At times the changes carried out transforms into a strong motivation and acts as a tool to take you towards your dreams and goals. 

It’s no surprise that when Feng Shui is adapted, an unrelated action such as painting a door could bring in a fresh outlook and open the way to new beginnings. Just re aligning the furniture is healing, allowing you to shape your environment in meaningful ways as we have the power to fill the home with soul-pleasing details.

Designing a stress-free home may mean rethinking the placement of rooms and furnishings. Expansive open areas will evoke a sense of freedom, but cozy, comforting nooks are often preferred for relaxation and meditation. Comfort and convenience are key factors when planning a home or even a room placement, storage, furniture arrangements and layout. Integrating the art of Vaastu and Feng Shui in the design specific to your property and the occupants is a more advanced approach than to follow the general rules.

• De clutter your space and send out things which you don’t need prior to starting the renovation as you can then create space to add in new things or change the décor.

• Identify a sector of the house to make it a cozy and comfortable zone by creating a “comfort corner” filled with favorite, familiar objects.

• Take away photographs and mementos which have painful memories and store them away

• Remove heavy drapes and curtains and change them if they are old or get them cleaned.

Install full-spectrum light fixtures and ensure that you are able to accentuate the important areas and special corners.
