Feng Shui For Beginners

05/11/2017 in Remax at the beach

Whether you’ve been in your home for years or you just moved into a new home in Brunswick County, we have some fascinating information to share for beginners of Feng Shui. There are believers of Feng Shui and there are non-believers, or as we like to call them, not-yet-believers. 

Whether you believe in it or not, if you're planning on spring cleaning why not rearrange your furniture for a change? You just might be surprised how the energy of your home could change by moving even one piece.

 

Rearranging the Living Room

For many people, the living room or family room, as some call it, is the heart of the home. The flow of energy in the living room is essential to the overall energy of the family that lives there. To create a cozy, nurturing space, start with a seating area where it’s super easy to connect and relax together. Arrange the couch and chairs close together for easy conversation without having to talk loudly to be heard.

 

Place your couch against a wall if possible. Feng shui tradition says this anchors the piece, providing a feel of security and safety. If floating in the center of the room is your only option, mimic the anchoring effect by arranging a console and a pair of robust floor lamps behind your couch.

Keeping the Romance Alive

A master bedroom should be a safe haven — a place for intimacy, relaxation and sleep. Maximize the romantic energy by decluttering the space then keeping it that way. Leave electronic devices in another room to avoid being woken up by notifications or bringing work to bed with you.

 

Less Can Be More

Aim for a minimalist look in your home by eliminating any unnecessary furniture in your bedroom especially. Place the bed as far from the door as possible. This offers a commanding position with a clear view of the entrance, which helps you feel safe and secure. If there are lights and noises in the other rooms that can disturb your sleep at night, get in the habit of closing the door before you get into bed.

When You’re Expecting a Baby

When choosing a room for your baby, Feng Shui tradition favors the baby's room at the heart of the house. Choose a bedroom toward the center of the home. Make sure it's not over a noisy area of the house, like the garage, kitchen, or facing a noisy street. When choosing where to place the crib, it's more favorable to place the headboard of the crib against a wall than the side of the crib; this allows for better flow and balance of energy. It should be at the farthest point from the door, but not under a window or floating in the middle of the room.

 

When you want to paint the nursery, know that colors matter. Avoid using bright, energetic colors like red or yellow and depressing shades of gray or black. Instead opt for soft, soothing shades of blue, green, plum, pink or beige. Avoid excessive use of patterns, as these can hinder the calming energy in your baby's environment.

Top Benefits of Buying vs. Renting Your Next Home

If you’re currently renting a home you may not realize the advantages of owning your own home. Most first time buyers are nervous about taking the steps to purchase that first home. In today's market, there are great opportunities for buyers and at Re/Max At the Beach we can help you get into the perfect home.

 

Top Benefits of Buying vs. Renting Your Next Home

 

When you’re paying rent you’re only paying for 30 days worth of housing. But when you own a home your payments are being invested into something you own. Consider a mortgage payment a long term investment in your own piece of real estate. Rental rates fluctuate, often increasing every year; when you have a mortgage, you can rely on consistent payments with a fixed-rate loan.

Buying a home provides you with the stability of not having to fret over when you will be moving again. You’ll have the freedom to make the home yours; paint the living room a color that matches your favorite couch, replace the vanity in the bathroom, or hang your new television on the wall. When you rent, your landlord and the terms of your lease specify what you can and cannot do. Buying your own home also means you can get that dog you've always wanted for your children.

If you’ve considered buying but the thought of property maintenance overwhelmed you? Then consider a condo or townhouse. Although you pay a low monthly association fee, most of the time exterior maintenance is covered. Some condo associations come with benefits such as a community pool, tennis courts and parks or common acreage. This is a logical step if you’re concerned about the responsibilities of being a homeowner.

Do you think you can’t afford a home? There are many loan programs with low interest rates currently available. At Re/Max At the Beach we can assist you with locating a lender and get you in that dream home that you can finally call your own.

Our team has the experience and knowledge to guide you through the home buying process. Give us a call today at 910-842-8686 and let us help you find your dream home!
