How To Feng Shui A Small Apartment

Everyone wants balance and harmony in the space they call home and feng shui is one of the most popular and easiest ways to do it. According to The Spruce, the way to achieve feng shui is by arranging the space in order to create a balance between the person and the environment they live in.

While this seems like an easy task, having a small apartment can make things a bit challenging, mainly because of the lack of free space to create flow. Never fear, we've got some tips and tricks to feng shui a small apartment and create harmony from the time you wake up to when your head hits the pillow at night.

Let's first dive into how to create positive energy in your space, a task that's simple to do and will get easier and more intuitive over time. This includes clearing clutter, color choices, and paying attention to your senses.

Creating Positive Energy

The first and easiest thing to do to start the process of transforming the apartment to feng shui is to clear the clutter. Clear miscellaneous papers and put them away, and clear clutter from places like behind the door and under the bed. MakeSpace notes the importance of energy flow while sleeping. Storage bins and shoes block that energy flow, and you don't want that in feng shui.

According to Den Garden, color is used to change energy and mood for the better. In a small apartment, white is really advantageous as it naturally opens up the space. If allowed, go ahead and paint a wall in a color that brings positivity and makes you happy.

Smell and sight are also important in creating a feng shui apartment. With candles, diffusers, and incense, there are a lot of choices to create a signature house smell. Choose a soothing scent like lavender or chamomile or something more energizing like ginger or lemon. Lastly, let the light in by opening up the windows if the weather allows. Open the curtains and lift the blinds to let that sunshine in.

Room Design and Decor

Now let's talk about the different rooms in the house and how rearranging furniture can really complete the process of obtaining feng shui in a small apartment.

A bedroom is a place for rest and relaxation, so creating energy that reflects that will help you get a better night's sleep. The bed is the focal point of the room, and according to Apartment Guide, it should be in the "command position" in relation to the door. You need to be able to see it but not be right across from it. Nightstands and lamps should be next to you to create warmth.

A lucky money tree or jade plant, as well as a fountain, are good decor pieces for an office space. The kitchen and living room should have opportunities to let the natural light shine in. Living room furniture should have circular pieces to encourage conversations. Bathrooms should be free of heavy materials and should be free of clutter.

And there you have it! Easy tasks to start organizing a small apartment for feng shui.
