Successful interior decoration for living rooms may be very dependent on the early Chinese feng shui principles. Good feng shui creates harmony in homes and is based on better placement of furniture and objects to create positive and therapeutic energy flows. Many people have said that creating feng shui home layouts was really beneficial for their mental health and well-being.
The following tips can help you design a feng shui layout for your large open plan space:
One of the basic principles of feng shui to follow when designing your living room is to keep the angles as open as possible. This creates a positive chi energy flow and adds a wide open feeling to the layout while increasing the amount of natural light in the room. Low profile furniture should be used to prevent the inhibition of chi effects and the color schemes that the eye of any observer should be used throughout.
It is also important to set identifiable boundaries within any layout of the open plan in order to define the purpose of each space. If the room includes a kitchen, dining room and living room, you can define these areas using carpets, hanging lights, low room dividers, sliding doors or different colors.
In your kitchen / dining room, a kitchen island can be used to create a boundary between the kitchen and the dining room and is also a useful feature that can double as a breakfast bar. Your table should be placed in the right way to create positive energy and the same applies to the living room in your living room. Creating a focal point using natural shapes and elements can also increase the sense of space. Building a positive feng shui also means that the view of your front door is not impeded in any way.
Tips to keep in mind
Clutter is a vow for the positive energy feng shui, so reduce it at any time.
Practicality is also important for living spaces. It has to be a peaceful relaxation area where you can relax. Keeping decorations and ornaments at minimal levels is a way of building and enhancing peace and relaxation. The colors of the elements of the earth are ideal for designing your living room and setting limits. They provide feelings of stability and serenity, for which colors they can choose, consider pale yellow, beige or leather, and earth or sand tones.
Build natural light and fresh air in your open seating area to boost positive energies. The lighting level of the various types of lamps can help build a welcoming and relaxing living room environment during dark hours.
Outdoor living and dining areas may look a bit difficult or minimal at times, keeping all decorative elements close together can help maintain balance in each region.
