The term feng shui translates into wind water and represents an early Chinese philosophy that simple means to live harmoniously together with nature and your surroundings-blending into nature and man the same, just like water and wind can blend together as clouds, yet each element is completely different from the rest. Armed with this philosophy, you can update your un-selling home and use feng shui to sell your home.
Symmetry with nature is a common theme when describing feng shui and energy flow is another. What better way to express both of those elements by adding feng shui window treatments?
Textures and colors that mimic outdoor light sources should be applied for each window in each room. For instance, a bright and well landscaped window should mimic the outdoors with bright yellows, greens, blues and other bright outdoor landscapes.
City dwellers whose grey and charcoal exteriors offer a chance for grays, silvers, black and browns to be displayed. The idea is that symmetry with your surroundings and yourselves are what make feng shui so sellable.
Likeness in colors and contrasts may work well for window treatments, but furniture tends to act awkwardly if it doesn’t suit the location. While upgrading furniture might be an option, it’s not always a necessity when redesigning and decorating feng shui.
Symmetry works-but only when symmetry already exists. So don’t over do it. If a door opening is centered in the room, symmetry and likeness works. Two same chairs facing each other in opposite corners, can center window and door openings.
The look of symmetry can be faked with opposing furniture. Sliding it to one side of the room, breaking it into sections-all lend to feng shui practices that attract potential buyers.
Remember, the freer flowing and inviting the room, the easier it is to show buyers. Clustering furniture all about a badly placed coffee table can easily distract buyers and cause them to think the room is too small. Every little bit helps when using feng shui to sell your home.
