Feng Shui Bathroom
In a house, bathroom is not considered a very important and
productive place. It is the place is where we wash off all the dirt and clean
our body, but still everybody ignores the significance of this place and nobody
pays any attention to it. In Feng Shui also, it is not considered too much, but
it is surely not ignored. Though it does possess some negativity, but it is not
purely negative. Feng Shui also states that bathroom should have attributes like
cleanliness, comfort and convenience.
The reason why it is considered such a problem is that it has a draining effect
wherever it is located. Therefore, the location of the bathroom poses difficulty
and should be carefully chosen. This is to prevent any difficulty with regard to
the flow of energy, Chi. Bagua, the Feng Shui map of space, does not accommodate
the bathroom in it, which further enhances the difficulty. The most troublesome
locations of the bathroom are just next to or above the front door or on the
second floor above the kitchen.
The reason being, the location in the entrance hall will drain away the energy
as soon as it enters the house, without giving it a chance to circulate in other
parts. The bathroom on the second floor above the main door will fill the
entrance with negative Chi. A bathroom located above the kitchen will extinguish
the fire element of the kitchen, which will badly affect health and prosperity.
However, the most perilous position of the bathroom is the center of the house,
where it will undermine the complete energy of the whole house.
Bathroom is the place for cleanliness and purification. Thus it should always be
kept clean and tidy, so as to minimize the ill effects which might be caused.
Moreover, if your bathroom is located at any of the above mentioned problematic
places, it becomes even more important to keep it uncluttered and well lit. In
addition, you should apply the necessary Feng Shui objects to minimize the ill
effects. All this will ensure you that your bathroom becomes an active place
which kick starts your day energetically.
Water element is present in the bathroom, so it should be towards the north
direction, which supports the element. Do not keep the entire décor of the
bathroom in white color. Apply earthy colors to it, like pastel browns and
yellows. You can also add aroma candles, soft music, fluffy towels and creative
art work, to make your bathroom attractive and inviting. Enjoying a hot water
bath, with scented bath salts, is always a delight and reenergizes one
completely. So, don't forget to savor the luxury of a nice bathroom.
