6 Feng Shui Secrets to Attract Love
1, Put Furniture Legs on Rugs
"Never put all your furniture against the walls," says Karen, feng shui consultant and author of Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life. "Furniture should be arranged to support communication, so forget where the walls are. Put at least the front legs of all furniture on the rug — not just around it — and people will sit there and talk."
2, Add Doubles to Every Room
"If you want to start a relationship, don't surround yourself with single imagery", says Laura, feng shui and holistic design expert. "Avoid a single chair in the corner, solitary images in artwork, and solo photographs. It's important to create the energy of partnership around you, otherwise, you are continually enforcing singularity." Add a second chair to a sitting area, double up on nightstands and surround yourself with pairs of everything.
3, Add Happy Family Photos
4, Arrange Dining Table in a Circle
When it comes to creating more love, the dining room is the second most important space in a home, the master bedroom being the most important. Arrange the dining table so everyone can see each other, and set out enough chairs for everyone even if the family doesn't eat together every night, says Karen. Symbolically, it's important to include the whole group.
5, Create a Cozy Master Bedroom
Oversized master bedrooms need to be cozier in order to have good relationship feng shui. Start by closing off any adjoining rooms, including a bathroom, office, patio or gym, suggests Karen. If there's no door, install curtains. If you have a sitting area, arrange the chairs toward each other, and downsize with a smaller bed — go from king to queen or queen to double. "When space gets bigger and bigger, people tend to live further and further apart emotionally."
6, Arrange Kids' Beds for Better Harmony
"Feng shui applies to all the occupants in the house," explains Laura. "Children can be even more susceptible to their surrounding energies, so it's very important to make sure their beds are placed in the commanding position. They will feel easily startled and vulnerable if their backs are to the door." Laura also says electronics should never be stored or charged near a child's bed.
