Affordable feng shui can sound like an oxymoron. After all, in order to achieve many of the layouts in decor, it appears as though you’d need to replace much of your furniture and accessories at quite the cost. This, on top of the mental image of fountains, statues, crystals and other objects associated with home energy flow come with a substantial price tag. All this, assuming you won’t actually need a full home renovation.
While we could all benefit from more positive energy flow, not all of us can afford it. Fortunately, affordable feng shui is more than possible. With the right tweaks you can turn your space into a much freer-more flowing and motivational one.
Affordable Feng Shui Tips
Use the following affordable tips to achieve feng shui in your home. They are simple and straightforward and won’t cost much money.
Remove the Clutter
This is the most direct and least expensive of all the steps toward affordable feng shui. In fact, it is absolutely free. Eliminating the excess of objects in the open spaces of your home allows for a far better flow in your space. This may seem like an overwhelming task, but if you work on it a little bit each day, the results will be astounding. Spend just five minutes on decluttering each day, and the project will naturally complete itself.
Removing the clutter not only clears the flow through your space but also through your mind. Studies have shown that a less cluttered home reduces stress and helps to improve motivation.
Instead of shelling out for expensive artwork, add your own pieces to your space. Make them yourself or use what your children have made. Select pieces you like in the rooms where you’ll be displaying them. Not only will this improve your enjoyment of the look of the space, but it will bring emotion and energy into the space in a highly potent way.
Remember your rooms while you’re shopping at the grocery store. A bowl filled with citrus fruit brings a pop of color, a fresh scent and high energy, too. Consider the affordable feng shui component of nine lemons. Not only is it a cheap and lovely way to decorate, but it is also a wealth symbol. Still, any amount of any kind of citrus is good because it looks lovely, but you can also consume it over time!
