There is a growing segment of potential buyers looking for houses which incorporate the principles of feng shui. An ancient Chinese practice, feng shui is believed to improve one’s life through the use of color, location and positioning, and specific materials and objects, all of which combine to produce a positive energy, or chi, in your home.

feng shuiThe primary focus of feng shui is the positive flow of energy, which contributes to the creation of harmony in life. Integral components of the philosophy are the five elementsof fire, earth, water, metal, and wood, and each of these is enhanced by color selection and use in your Tampa FL home as follows:

Other feng shui principles to follow include:

1. Avoidance of unnecessary furnishings and objects:

In feng shui, less is more. Proponents of the practice suggest avoiding big pieces of furniture and removing most plants, photographs, and personalize items in order to facilitate the flow of energy.

2. Abundance of light:

Ample lighting is conducive to good energy and should be generously provided in your Tampa FL home to provide a sense of spaciousness. Natural light is best, but warm, soft artificial lighting is acceptable. Dimmer switches are strongly suggested

3. Outside appearance:

A solid, strong front door is essential, as is an attractive and clutter-free entranceway. Your landscaping should be well-maintained, your house numbers need to be clean and easily visible, and a well-lit entrance is a must! 

4. The feng shui “trinity”:

The bathroom, kitchen, and bedroom are of vital importance in your Tampa FL home since there is a powerful connection among the three areas which promotes health and well-being.

  • Bathroom: Try to create a spa-like, relaxing atmosphere through the use of lighting and mirrors, which give the room a sense of space
  • Kitchen:  Incorporate unadorned countertops, fire and wood tones, and lighting under the cabinets to invite a good chi.   Add a basket of fresh fruit or flowers.
  • Bedroom:  You should have a solid headboard and a bed that is approachable from both sides and flanked by two end tables. The walls should be in earth colors, and televisions, computers, and exercise equipment should not be present.

Good feng shui means positive energy, sure to help with the sale of your Tampa FL home. Who doesn’t want the hope of good health, happiness, and prosperity?
