Designing a Custom Feng Shui Home
The best thing about building a custom home is that you’re able to incorporate the things that are important to you and your family. Some of our past clients have asked us to design and build a Feng Shui inspired home and we’ve been happy to work with them to incorporate many Feng Shui elements into their dream home.
Feng Shui—literally translated as “wind-water”—is an ancient philosophical system that seeks to harmonize the environment by arranging and orientating objects and structures to create a positive flow of energy.
When we work with our clients to design Feng Shui inspired homes, we often take into account 5 main factors:
Orientation of the Home
To encourage the flow of positive energy into your home, it’s important to take into consideration the orientation of the home. When you build a custom dream home, you have the ability to incorporate Feng Shui directionality into your design.
Setting the mood for your whole home, the front door should be welcoming and encourage positive energy to flow throughout your home.
One of the principal tenants of Feng Shui is to remove clutter from areas to encourage organization. Cluttered areas can restrict positive energy from freely flowing and therefore thought has to be given to adequate storage solutions so that everything has a place.
Colour Choices and Natural Light
A home’s colour pallete plays an important role in Feng Shui as well as the amount of natural light a home has. Consideration should be given to the mood and energy certain colours create and special attention should be paid to window placements. Flooding a home with natural light can improve the mood and energy of all it’s inhabitants.
Incorporate Different Elements
Depending on our client’s preferences, we can work with different elements or materials. For example, wood accents can increase creativity, fire represents passion and excitement and live plants clear the air of toxins and can increase serenity.
At Omega Homes, we strive to turn our client’s dreams into reality.
