Based on the Taoism principle of chi (life force), Feng Shui is used to balance yin and yang elements to create positive chi.

Feng Shui designer, Reiko Gomez, recommended singletons to make space for a possible partner in the bedroom, if they so wish.

The bed should never be pushed up against a wall, if not needed, so that there is enough space for each person to leave and get into bed.

“If you’re looking for a romantic partner, attract a relationship by literally making space for one,” advised Gomez.

Fellow Feng Shui master, Dana Claudat, agreed that there has to be room for partners in the bedroom.

Claudat said: “A bed with a nightstand and lamp on each side of the bed helps create the setting for a balanced relationship.

“Especially for someone looking for a romantic partner, it helps attract them by literally making space for them.”

Gomez told Good Housekeeping (who also interviewed Claudat): “Today, it’s pretty common knowledge that storing anything under the bed is a no-no in Feng Shui.”

Air needs to be able to flow freely underneath the bed to ease any worries.

Gomez cautioned that putting clutter underneath the bed could trap energy and cause problems with sleep.

According to Feng Shui principles, both the toilet lid and bathroom door should be shut.

This is to help prevent money from flowing away from you and going down the toilet.

One good addition to the bathroom is a bamboo plant, which should be reflected in the bathroom mirror to amplify prosperity and well-being.

Moving on to the lounge area, basic Feng Shui traditions include introducing all five elements into the living room.

Five elements and their shapes

  1. Earth – flat, square shapes
  2. Metal – spherical, round shapes
  3. Water – curvy, wavy shapes
  4. Wood – rectangular, columnar shapes
  5. Fire – triangular shapes.

These elements could also be represented in the artwork you decide to display in the lounge.

Also, living green plants in your living area will help to bring life energy into your home.
