Feng Shui In The Laundry Room
It’s easy to neglect the laundry room when applying feng shui principles to your home. This room’s function is similar to that of the bathroom because it is a place of water and removal of debris. If you are building a new home or remodeling, laundry room placement following the principles of feng shui can optimize and enhance your wealth sector. The laundry room should not be placed in the wealth area of your home since a wealth sector is governed by wood. As a place of water, the laundry room nurtures wood. Do not place the laundry room in a fire area of the home since fire and water work against each other. To improve or enhance your finances, a feng shui laundry room should be light. Light hues of blue or green are enhancing colors that attract water. Wood choices for cabinets and trim should be tan or light brown. Keep everything light. One of the most important elements is good lighting, whether through windows or overhead lights. Good lighting creates a positive flow of Chi and allows you to see what you are doing.
Adequate storage should be included for the laundry supplies that are needed. It should not, however, become a catch-all room for storing unrelated items. There should be enough counter or work table space for folding clothes. Do not place a dragon facing the laundry room. Dirty water is flowing out of the room and the shar chi (negative energy) can impact the energy your dragon enhances. A bowl of multi-colored blue and light brown crystals or colored stones can enhance and attract wealth. Don’t overdo your design with too many feng shui elements.
