Feng Shui Elements & How They Can be Incorporated into Home Staging & Redesign

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!
