How does Feng Shui impact the consumer looking for a house. Some look for tangible criteria, such as price range, location, neighbourhood, square footage and condition of the house etc. Some look for intangible such as where the house is situated on the street and/or lot, the home flow/layout of the house, street numbers and which direction the house is facing etc. More and more people are seeking ideas and guidance using Feng Shui.
- look for a house that is square or rectangle without any missing corners. If rectangle, it should be longer not wider and ideally not more that a ratio of 2:1 if too long it is too narrow
- house should allow plenty of sunlight to get in and should be airy and flow through the middle of the house to avoid it being stuffy, dark and gloomy
- plenty of garden space according to your budget or lots of plants in the house as they are known to be a generator and you will benefit from having them
- internal beams are known to create "sha" which affects the people who sit or sleep under it so look for a house where the overhead beams are out of the way. Your main entrance door, your bed, where you sit should not have an overhead beam
Many people look for different things when buying a house. Whether it is Feng Shui, style/position of furniture, children, family, jobs, income or location, just to name a few, that influence our decision in our choices, in the end it is those things that help to make that house your home.
