Metal Furniture In Feng Shui
Having metal furniture offers a lot of great benefits that are unique to metal material. If you want to using metal furniture in Feng shui, here are some tips for you. Each room in your home should have a working balance of between 3 to 5 elements. The idea is to find your own individual balance, depending on who lives in the house and the areas of your life you wish to work on. Many beginners use straightforward percentages, start at 50% Earth, 40% Metal and 10% Water as a guide. To personalise your Feng shui, find out your birth element and Kua number. If metal is your birth element or your Kua number is 6 or 7, it’s lucky for you to increase representation of metal in your home and garden. Instead of just using a planter or mirror, you may want to consider metal furniture, such as a metal bed, dining set, coffee table or patio set. Metal furniture, décor and accessories must be positioned North or North West, in accordance with the Bagua. This is your placement map symbolising how your environment is connected to your life. The North is known for life’s journey, opportunities and your career, so positioning metal furniture in these areas will strengthen these aspects of your life. The West is known for completion and creativity and the Northwest for helpful people and travel.
When looking for metal furniture and accessories for your home and garden, you must also take into account that its associated shape is round. Therefore, choose a round wrought iron patio set or anything circular to strengthen the effect. When you include metal furniture in your deécor, be especially careful of sharp edges. A sharp corner is considered ‘Shar’ which means killer or disharmony. So again, always go for round shapes.
