There are five elements of Feng Shui that each, or in company with each other, can be used in home staging Austin or in redesign to complement the mood of a room. The elements are wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Since there is a lot of information about each of the elements, I’m going to break each element into its own blog. As I have said many times, I am not an expert at all – – – – I really just want to be sure I understand what I am reading and to help me do that, I am putting it into writing which helps me remember! Hopefully, we will all learn a little more about Feng Shui!
Each of the five elements controls a certain type of energy or chi that can be influenced by the type of materials used. A quick example of this would be the type of flooring used in your home. Wood floors allow the flow and circulation of chi along the grain of the wood [also sample of Yang]. A wool carpet, on the other hand, causes static that can interfere or slow the energy flow [Yin].
The first element that we will discuss in my next blog will be Wood. I hope you enjoyed this and will check back in for my next writing! Thanks!
