Feng Shui is a popular decorating style that is based on the logical structure of living spaces. It is highly recommended for use in children’s rooms, in order to ensure harmony, relaxation and inspiration as well as success in school. Avid believers in Feng Shui claim that the arrangements within a house can easily affect the feelings of the people who live there, as well as attract certain energies in their lives.
Figure out a design before you try bringing it into the room. Giving yourself ideas which are positive and negative for the room will help you out as well. If your child is one who has a hard time concentrating then you know to make the room ore soothing. You also want to make sure that the room is safe at all times. You can choose soft fabrics and lighting to create a great Feng Shui space.
One great factor when placing a child’s bed in the room with the Feng Shui style is placing the head of the bed against the wall. This will allow them to get out on any side if they need to turn the light on or off for any certain reason.
Clutter always happens in many children’s rooms since they accumulate a lot of stuff over the years. Books, toys, and toy boxes may be a big issue for some. Try choosing bins that are able to slide under the bed to store them or even an area in the closet. This will clear the clutter and make the room more spacious.
Children need plenty of rest so they can be productive the following day so you want to create a relaxing environment for your little one. You don’t want something too bright or overwhelming which will distract them and make them feel over stimulated.
Provide a soft area rug to cover the floor of your child’s room. Rugs create softness and balance against hard walls. Texture is an important part of Feng Shui so a rug is the perfect accessory for your child’s room. Find a rug in a soft color so it doesn’t overwhelm your child or make the room feel weighted down. Look for an area rug that is soft and comfortable for when you child plays on the floor.
Even the wall and ceiling angles play a part in Feng Shui. With sloping eaves, posters are not recommended to be put at the bed’s head since it creates a sensation on pressure hanging above your child’s head.
If you aren’t quite sure what Feng Shui is but you want to create this style in your child’s room or any other room in the home, try researching it before decorating a space. Another great idea to make sure your child’s room is safe and has that Feng Shui feel is to sleep in it for a night. Look around and see what the vision is before you rest your head and also when you wake up. Also take into consideration shadows which may appear with the glare of the night light. Make sure it’s not going to scare your child if they wake up in the middle of the night. On the other hand, if the room is bright due to a street light then place darkening shades on their windows to give them peace. If your child is old enough to help you decorate their room encourage them to help you. This will be a great learning experience for them and also show them that other cultures have great design techniques. Also ask them how they feel when they enter their room. Make sure nothing is harsh to their eyes and they feel at peace with the dcor.
