Chinese New Year is right around the corner! Now is the best time to kick the lunar year off by incorporating some Feng Shui principles into your property. Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese practice that focuses on harmonizing individuals with their surroundings. Some are even believed to help you further improve the quality and value of your property.

Here are three Feng Shui practices that could help your property thrive:


Optimal Building Orientation:

Optimizing building orientation is a feng shui principle that follows the belief that positive and negative energy enter and exit your property through its doors and windows. Relating this to property design practices, this principle allows you to optimize natural light and ventilation, thus creating a more comfortable and inviting atmosphere in your property.


Balancing Elements:

Feng Shui principles believe that everything in the universe is composed of a blend of the five elements - fire, wood, earth, metal and water – each with their own unique characteristics that interact with one another, creating a dynamic flow of energy in its surroundings. For example, if you take this concept into designing your property’s space, this means that you ensure that your space has optimal lighting, air flow, meticulously chosen furniture, and plants for greenery.


Clutter-Free Spaces:

In feng shui, clutter is believed to attract negative energy. This relates to the fact that staying or working in cluttered environments lead to more stress, distractions, and even health-related issues. It is always good practice to properly maintain your property by cleaning, fixing broken items, and keeping unnecessary things organized.


As we celebrate the lunar new year, one key takeaway from these feng shui principles is to always maintain balance and harmony in your property. Keep things organized and planned out. Through this, you will be able to make your property more appealing and attractive to your tenants and buyers.
