If you are preparing to sell your home, you want it to look and feel welcoming to your potential buyers. Organizing and designing your home using Black Hat Feng Shui principles can make a difference in the harmony and balance that can sometimes be the deciding factor for which home a buyer will ultimately purchase. Here are a few home-staging techniques that could give your home an advantage over your competition.
Positioning your furniture translates to a good flow of positive energy. Don’t overcrowd a room with too much furniture or block the room’s natural pathways with it. Be sure the bed is in the commanding position against a strong wall and facing the bedroom door. Hang mirrors on opposite walls of windows with great views. Remove any excess furniture and accessories that you don’t need or use.
Get rid of anything that no longer represents your dreams, hopes and wishes. Clutter serves as a physical and spiritual obstacle, so unless you love it, get rid of it. Put away personal photos, electronics and cords, as well as paper/magnets from the refrigerator, appliances and knick-knacks off the counters, etc.
Weather permitting, open a window to allow the revitalizing energy in the air to enter the room. Windows are the eyes of the home, so be sure to wash them inside and out so they sparkle.
Let as much natural light as possible enter your home. Pull back drapes and curtains, and open blinds. The energy boost from the light will help to balance the space and activate energy.
The front door is the most important part of your home. Invite positive ch’i in by painting it an appealing color so it stands out. Keep it clean and well lit, removing any debris from the light fixtures and replacing any light bulbs that may have burned out. Allow the positive energy and good ch’i to flow by placing wind chimes and a new welcome mat at your home’s entrance, as well as adding welcoming plants to both sides of the front door.
Be Aware Of Water Flow
If you add a decorative water feature to your home, such as a fountain or waterfall, make sure it is in the correct direction. Water should always be flowing toward the house, not away from it. Never place a water feature in the bedroom because the energy is too strong.
