How to do simple feng shui to achieve a better, brighter, and happier home
Keep the outside of your home clean and inviting.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Are there broken pots lining up the pathway leading to your door? Are your lights in good working condition? Remember, for positivity to find its way to your home, there needs to be a clean and well-lit pathway.
Your front door needs to complement the outside of your home.
According to The Spruce, the front door is the “mouth” of the home where positive energy enters. To harness good eng shui energy, the door needs to be in good condition, which means no chipping paint, a broken knob, and loose screws.
Decorate the front of your house.
The simplest way to do it is decorate with plants! They don’t just look good, they can add balance and good energy into your home’s overall feel, too.
Organize the entryway.
From the front door, energy flows into the home through the entryway. Don't break its flow with a cluttered space. Have a bin for shoes to keep it in place, a vase of flowers to add to the refreshing vibe, and a mirror that signifies the circulation of energy around the home.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Revamp your living room.
Keep the dining area welcoming.
Aside from getting rid of things that don’t belong in the dining area, you may want to put a vase of flowers on display as centerpiece. You can also hang a mirror on one wall to reflect the dining table.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

To maintain the positive energy in your kitchen, make sure the sink and stove aren’t opposite each other, and the the stove is not placed under the window or opposite the door.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Keep the bathroom clean.
Regularly clean the bathroom and make sure it’s smelling fresh all day, too. Some say that to keep positive energy from leaving the house, it’s a must to keep the toilet seat cover down when not in use.
If you have a garden, make sure you maintain it.
A well-maintained garden doesn’t just add to the overall look of your home, it also helps maintain the positive energy. Keep the plants healthy and thriving, and make sure you trim the bushes regularly. Sweep dried leaves and don’t forget to replace broken lighting pieces immediately.
