We all talk about home design and how to better our homes. But what happens when you buy a new house? Here are some things to take into consideration before you sign up for that great and wonderful house you just saw.
Once inside the house, you will need to carefully observe the structure and entire floor plan of the house. Things to look out for include slanted ceilings, exposed ceiling beams, missing doors and corners. Other important structural features such as the position of doors in relation to windows, the location of stairs in relation to the front door and others are all factors to take into consideration. Problem areas will very likely create bad feng shui, but keep in mind that there are cures for these problems.
These cures are usually very effective and they are accomplished by utilizing simple tools including crystal balls, wind chimes, water fountains and mirrors. The one reason to completely reject a house is if there are way too many problem areas.
There can also be a number of outside influences that you need to bear in mind . The surrounding community is just as important as the house itself. Go around the neighborhood to get an idea of some of the other things which can impact your life. Avoid buying a home that is found near cemeteries, police stations, hospitals, waste management facilities or any other sites that may adversely affect your home. Landscaping in the front of the house should be inviting for the ‘qi’ to flow right into your home. Make sure that the lawn and shrubs are fresh and never wilting, and in addition check for trees blocking the main entrance.
Remember to keep these pointers in mind when you are on the hunt for a new house. Another cool tip that should never be overlooked is to get to know the current homeowners. Find out the reason they may be selling, this can be a very good indicator of how feng shui will ultimately affect you if you select to live there. It’s an excellent sign if the current homeowners are leaving to move onto bigger and better things. When you already live in a home that you purchased, it is not too late to put these tips to use either. Learn more about the structure of your house along with the environment around you, then use your findings to determine the correct remedies to apply as a quick fix.
