The living room is the most important space in any household as it is usually the area to entertain guests or where the family sits and spends precious time together.

Living rooms should always be pleasantly and tastefully decorated.

In Feng Shui, the challenge in decorating a living room is to create a space that is practical while ensuring it has a strong, fresh, clean, and happy energy.

A living room must firstly be clutter-free. It is good to throw away broken items such as vases, photo frames or even the side tables that have cracked mirrors.

Put away old items that are no longer useful and which take up space.

Next, ensure that the living room is airy. It should have sufficient space to walk, be both well-lit and well-ventilated. And, if possible, it should have lots of natural light, which is the foundation of good Feng Shui energy.

If the living room is small, decorate the walls with mirrors to bring in more natural light.

Don’t limit your living room to a ceiling or floor lamp alone as this could create a potentially depressing quality of Feng Shui energy in the room. Have both ceiling and floor lamps and add a table lamp if you want.

According to www.thespruce.com, fresh air provides numerous health benefits and can help your family feel better both physically and emotionally.

Finding a balance in your living room is also important. It is a matter of rearranging your furniture, especially the sofa to a point where it doesn’t face sharp objects as you would sit facing it, and place some indoor plants.

The energy level in the living room would be greatly enhanced, especially if the indoor plants are Feng Shui-related.

Colours are amazing Feng Shui enhancers and you need to get the right ones for the living room to improve the mood of people who use the space.

According to www.thespruce.com, in Feng Shui, each colour is an expression of a specific element.

If you are not sure how to choose the right colours start by understanding the “Feng Shui bagua” or energy map for your home.

What’s important is that after spending all that time to do up your living room it is not only going to look amazing but it will also have good chi flow.
