7 Feng Shui Fundamentals for Childrens Bedrooms
Feng shui is a very popular and intriguing concept in home design today. In addition to the life benefits it provides, it also offers a roadmap, so to speak, of not just how to decorate... but why. In short, it offers you, the homeowner, design with purpose. For a child's room this purposeful design is especially important.
Feng shui gives parents a guide for decorating your children's bedrooms, and perhaps more importantly, a reason for adding particular elements -- something standard decorating practices don't always offer. What does that mean exactly? Well, when it comes to a child's bedroom, feng shui dictates everything from correct bed alignment, proper bedroom choice, essential decorating and design elements, i.e., do's and don'ts (no vicious animals, etc.) for a child's room, even how to influence the child to be studious and well-behaved -- all things most parents would appreciate knowing.
The purpose of feng shui in a child's bedroom is the same as every parent's objective in decorating their children's rooms: to create a healthy, happy environment that fosters education, good health, happy relationships with parents and siblings, and respect for parents. Children and parents can enjoy success and healthy relationships if the environment supports them.
Naturally, children must feel safe, secure, and cared for to thrive. By putting interest and effort into your child's room, you are showing your child that you believe the child's space, and therefore, your child, is important. The tips presented here are some of the fundamentals of feng shui for children.
1.Place a happy picture of the parents in the children's rooms.
2.Align the child's bed to the widest part of the room.
Bunk beds are not advised. If possible, try to have a separate bedroom for each child. If this isn't possible, there are lots of decorative ways to create division and privacy within a room.
3.Create a space for study and accomplishments.
4.Make the child's room a healthy place.
5.Clear the space so your child can rest and be creative.
6.Use light, color, and artwork in the room to make a happy environment.
Rooms that are painted blue (unless it's a bright or light-colored shade) or other dark colors can be depressing and create too much oppressive energy. Bright colors, such as yellows, light greens, purples and pinks are good choices, with yellow being the optimal choice.
Monitor the images your child sees being certain to eliminate images of ferocious or dangerous animals or violence. These are poor symbols for making a child feel safe in the bedroom. Select items for the room that inspire and intrigue a child to learn and that foster his or her sense of security.
7.Position children in the correct bedroom locations.
