Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese system of optimizing the energy flow and feel within a space. Its basic principles include minimizing clutter and using strategic design and furniture placement to enhance the feel of the room. Feng Shui also taps into directional principles, color therapy, plants, and the natural world to help fine tune the energy in a space and make it ideal for those who live there.
Practitioners of Feng Shui say that when it’s done well, all areas of life can improve. From relationships to health to career and finances, the energy within a home or workspace influences all of these areas as well as our overall wellbeing. Having a sleek and organized closet space can contribute to optimal Feng Shui in a home. A custom closet design from Closet & Storage Concepts of Modesto can assist with achieving this balance and harmony. The following are some examples of how custom closets can contribute to life-enhancing Feng Shui in the home.
A foundational principle of Feng Shui is having as little clutter as possible. A custom closet makes staying organized much easier, as it provides a place for everything. An organized drawer system, sleek cabinets, and accessory racks ensure these items won’t be strewn around your living space.
Improves the Flow of Chi
A closet that is organized and free of clutter also has a better flow of chi, or life force energy. Clutter or disharmonious placement of furniture and design elements can lead to a disrupted flow of chi. This can in turn make the energy of the space feel disturbed and unsettled. By contrast, custom closet organization offers the opportunity for your storage spaces to contribute to an optimally designed home with a positive flow of energy throughout.
Less Stress, More Harmony
The goal of Feng Shui is ultimately to improve quality of life here in the Modesto, Manteca, and Turlock areas. There are specific things that can theoretically be done to address certain areas. For example, putting plants, greenery, or natural items in the eastern areas of your home can support and improve physical health. Adding red or purple items to the southeast and northern areas of a workspace or home office is meant to improve the energy in your job, career, and finances. Placing valuable or beautiful items in the southwest corner of your home is said to improve your relationships.
However, the simple act of redesigning your closets for ideal storage and organization can contribute significantly to your home’s overall energy flow. Even when a closet is closed, if it is disorganized, that scrambled energy can spill over into the rest of the space. Conversely, an organized closet radiates peace and harmony. You’ll feel less stressed, more on top of your tasks, and better able to focus on your family, relationships, work, and hobbies. You’ll also have more leisure time and be able to enjoy it more fully!
Custom closet organization can dramatically enhance the flow of energy and overall Feng Shui in your home. With better storage and organization, you’ll likely notice improvements in many areas of your life. Contact Closet & Storage Concepts Modesto today to schedule a free in-home consultation!
