The advancement of technology has brought about many changes in the modern lifestyle. And with it, the desire for something better grows on. Earlier what was considered a necessity is now a statement of luxury and class. And modern day bathrooms are also not untouched from this. This is because our bathrooms offer a private sanctuary where we can be alone with our thoughts, relax and unburden all the negativity.
But did you know that there are certain elements that contribute to that perfect bathroom experience? A proper Feng Shui bathroom encourages both the purification and renewal of the body, and is a wonderful place to release all that is unwanted in your life. With a few careful tips, you can easily transform your bathroom into a symbol of vitality that will help you in letting go of everything that no longer serves you. Here are some helpful tips:
1. Toilets & Bathroom Door
The goal of Feng Shui is to invite into our front door Chi (Energy) and encourage it to spread evenly around the home. Drains and openings are the areas from where the Chi can escape, and bathrooms have lots of them. Keeping the bathroom door closed and toilet seat down minimizes the loss of energy. To further minimize the loss of energy, make the toilet as inconspicuous as possible. In fact, the best solution is to have the toilet separate from the bathroom.
2. The Mirror Effect
Mirrors are highly recommended as they speed up and circulate energy. However, to avoid multiplying the dirty energy, make sure that a large mirror is not reflecting the toilet.
3. Light and Air
To energize the bathrooms; invite fresh air and sunlight in with windows and skylight. The fresh air helps dry out the bathroom, which tends to become damp and musty. If you do not have a window, open the bathroom door for a few minutes to air it out. Also, make sure that the toilet seat is down.
4. Night Light
One can strengthen the overall energy of your bathroom by adding a night light, preferably a night lamp, as the fire energy from the lamps will suppress the bad energy and provide a calming effect to the room.
5. Lush Plants
Lush green plants help freshen up the air and your spirit, and suppress the bad energy.
6. Keep it Clean
And lastly, keep your bathroom clean, windows sparkling and bring in the spa feeling with candles, flowers and soothing artwork to help your feel refreshed and rejuvenated every time you step into your bathroom.
By following these simple recommendations, you can make your personal space into a personal sanctuary where you can unwind after a long day at work.
