Feng shui hall  

The ancient Chinese discipline of feng shui – the science of wind and water – establishes a relationship between the house and the human body.

Many of the feng shui standards are based on centuries of study of observations of human reactions to their environment. They tell us that the house makes the ch’i – the life force – bring health, prosperity and good luck to its inhabitants.

Although we do not believe in it, the truth is that people function better in pleasant environments.

In Chinese society, experts in feng shui are consulted to consult from how to place a chair to how the entrances, stairs, doors and everything that concerns any element of a home should be.

We talk in this article about feng shui in the hall , that is, at the entrances of houses. The hall is a space that communicates the exterior and interior world of home and expresses how we relate to society.

The more welcoming the entrance, the more easily energy, people, resources and opportunities will flow into our life. Tickets are doors that access the chi energy to our house, so it must be free of obstructions.

The entrance must be clearly defined and well lit.

The main door constitutes the point of support for the location of the “bagua”, it is the source of energy of the house, as is the mouth the entrance of food to our body.

In the case of being a floor, the landing, the shared corridors also exert a great influence. Hallways create transitional spaces and should be free of distracting objects.

The goal is for the transition from outside to inside to be as smooth as possible. Order is essential and will allow a better flow of chi .

It is convenient to have a space to leave your shoes and thus keep the energy of the outside world away from the refuge of the inner world. What people see when entering home influences their experience.

If we find a smooth wall followed by an open area or a corridor, it is more successful than finding a partial view of a wall. Some flowers on a shelf or on a table are very cozy.

If the hall continues in a corridor, avoid any piece of furniture that interrupts the path. For example, a chair that can be used to store clothes, as this creates a blockage.

The chair prevents energy from flowing as freely as possible to penetrate the house and the lives of its tenants; you have to remove it.

Feng Shui paintings for the hall 

The entrance walls are an ideal space to place an image that reinforces, for example, the search for a new activity.

A painting with moving water or any decorative map will help you find that way.

If we have a staircase at the entrance, the pictures placed on the wall of the staircase contribute to moving the energy upwards.

This can be helped by a carpet, for example, a bright red color that causes a surge of energy when observed.

A convex mirror in front of the entrance creates flexibility and direction, the same as if a wall opening to the hall is curved as it provides a smooth passage for energy.

The flower arrangements give a positive welcome and reflect the host’s hospitality.

Tips for entrances and hallways:

  1. Mark the entrance and delimit it to differentiate it from the rest of the doors
  2. If the house has numbers, they should be slightly tilted from left to right.
  3. What feelings do you want to convey from your home? Use mirrors and pictures with great perspective
  4. Keep the hall tidy and unobstructed, as well as the corridors. Clutter creates a negative impact.
  5. No over-decoration, smooth rugs or small patterned rugs.
  6. If the corridors are long, the chi has to be stopped.
  7. Interrupt the path of that long corridor, for example with round pots on the floor or with painted motifs on the wall, in order to distract attention.
  8. Don’t offer chi easy ways to escape, the rounded stairs at the bottom draw the energy back.
  9. You can also turn to a mirror or a shiny object behind the front door.
