According to ancient Chinese art, Feng Shui affects our health, wealth, luck, success, and happiness in life. We can often see tips and ideas on how to apply Feng Shui to a bedroom or living room, but we often forget the bathroom. Bathroom is an important place for us and it should be a source of energy and an oasis of peace.
In addition to wood, water is one of the most important elements in Feng Shui, and because the bathroom is most often associated with water, it deserves particularly great attention.
The most important things in the bathroom from the perspective of Feng Shui are colors, cleanliness, and arrangement of things. The bathroom is a relatively energy-intensive zone, so it is necessary to ensure that the energy is not wasted here.
What should a bathroom look like according to Feng Shui? What are the most ideal colors and how to create a balance in your bathroom? Let’s take a look at our tips on how to improve and balance the energy in your bathroom.
Feng Shui Bathroom Tips & Ideas
According to Feng Shui principles, the bathroom should be located on the north side of your home. The correct location can be found using a compass. This is where water energy is best accumulated. The bathroom is not suitable in the middle of the house, near the entrance, next to the kitchen or next to the bedroom. Any room can weaken to some extent.
Feng Shui recommends having bathrooms and toilets separately. However, if this is not possible, it is advised to separate them from each other by a wall or a curtain. where should a toilet be placed in a bathroom
The toilet seat should always be up and the door should be closed. This also applies to windows (except for ventilation), doors, or laundry baskets. Because it is a spot in which energy is disposed of, it may deplete the house. It is likewise significant whenever a bathroom is within a bedroom to hold the door closed. As for the Feng Shui door, they should not face the main entrance door or the door of your bedroom. However, if it can’t be rebuilt or you have no other choice, don’t worry. You can harmonize energy in other ways.
A bathroom is a place where dirt is washed away. According to this old Chinese teaching, however, it is not only related to the purification of the body, but also of the soul. Feng Shui proponents, therefore, advise keeping the room as clean as possible. This applies to stainless steel taps, mirrors, doors, or the floor. Apart from maintaining the area nicely lit, ensure that the plumbing is working correctly. The plumbing in the bathroom can impact the “internal plumbing” of those residing in the house. Drippy faucets and defective plumbing signify “a leaky wallet,” as well as loud plumbing is troubling on the subliminal stage.
Speaking of the floor, there should be no dirty clothes or wet towels. If there is plenty of water on the ground after showering, make sure to dry the floor as soon as possible.
Chaos in any space brings chaos into life. Put small things like elastic bands, pins, tweezers, and other accessories ideally in glass jars or in a drawer. The main purpose is not to hide these things from our sight, but to organize them.
What about medicine in the bathroom?
There should not be a first aid kit, a medicine chest or any medication. It is recommended to place all of your medicine in a closed space such as a cabinet or drawer. Vitamins and supplements are an exception and you can keep them in the bathroom.
The bathroom window that allows natural ventilation is a big plus according to Feng Shui. If you do not have it in the room, it is necessary to ensure good lighting and ventilation. The mirror should be always kept clean and without smudges. It is forbidden to place mirrors opposite each other because it attracts distress and lowers the vibrations.
Make sure water is not leaking, for example in the form of a dripping tap. Dripping water carries the energy of indecision.
Feng Shui Colors in the Bathroom
According to Feng Shui, white is the most suitable color for your bathroom. Any light pastel tones are also suitable. It is good to choose similar colors for towels, curtains or rugs. Blue is also associated with the water element.
If you already have a white bathroom, we recommend towels or rugs in blue. And you don’t just have to focus on these things. Toothbrush holder, toilet brush, candles, or other design accessories can also be in these colors.
Feng Shui Bathroom and Plants
According to Feng Shui, the bathroom is not a place where it is necessary to have plants. However, if you want to decorate your bathroom with plants, always choose live plants, not dry, and don’t forget to take care of them. The ideal choice is fern or other green plants that don’t produce flowers. Lucky bamboo is a great choice, too.
Plants can also be a great choice if you don’t have a window in the bathroom as they improve indoor air quality.
Feng Shui is a wonderful tool that can create harmony in your home and in your life. If you learn to work with it correctly and make room for positive chi energy to flow freely, you can change your life for the better.
