7 Ways to Better Feng Shui in Your Bathroom

Franca Giuliani - How do you feel about your bathroom? Do you like it? Do you find it comfortable? Is it inspiring? What is your first reaction when you enter it?

Your bathroom is a very important space. It supports you in the morning as you get ready to face the world, and it soothes you as you prepare for your night’s rest. It symbolizes our self-worth and is directly associated to our finances, because the movement of water relates to wealth.  

Here are some important tips for the bathroom.

1. Lighting

Innately, bathrooms tend to be very yin. Make them brightly lit and cheery.

2. Cleanliness

Bathrooms should be clean, clutter-free and as opened and airy as possible.

3. Working Order

Keep everything in your bathroom functioning. Dripping faucets can be a metaphor for money leaking out. Make sure your toilet works properly, and definitely keep the toilet seat down to minimize draining chi.

4. Mirror Mirror

Your main mirror should be very clear, expansive, and not interrupted (you don't want seams breaking it up). This will give you a powerful, undistorted view of yourself and will help you with self-esteem and encouragement. If your mirror is too small or if you have more than one near each other, subconsciously it can give you a feeling of meekness and uncertainly.

5. Plants

Have plants wherever possible, as the plants balance the excess water. If you cannot find a sturdy plant and want to use artificial ones, pick silk plants. Stay away from plastic and dried flowers.

6. Tall Energy

Add uprising chi wherever possible: things that are tall, tree plants, long stripes, column-esque shapes, and the color green all work.

7. View

If your bathroom does not have a window, use more mirrors and imagery of outdoor trees, plants, flowers. Landscapes are wonderful, because they add depth to the space.
