Room Dividers & Feng Shui
Feng Shui originated in China thousands of years ago. Wikipedia describes Feng Shui as a pseudoscience (I know it can be construed as a bit woo-woo) with the term translated in English to mean wind-water. In the West Feng Shui has been explained as “a system of laws considered to govern spatial arrangement and orientation in relation to the flow of energy (chi), and whose favourable or unfavourable effects are taken into account when siting and designing buildings.”
With your home there are many things you can do to create a more balanced and harmonious evironment. One of them is to use room dividers.
Reducing Anxiety & Stress
Room dividers are great because you can use them to close off messy areas like an office or kids reaction area. Room dividers can also be used to create quiet spaces for mediation, yoga or other activities that require solitude and calm. The rooms can then be opened up for more social activities.
The idea of quiet areas and hiding messy areas is great for anxiety and stress so there is more to a room divider than quality, design and functionality. Its about controlling your environment to suit your lifestyle. You will be surprised and the difference a room divider makes to a home.
Colours Also Make A Difference
The colour of your room divider can also enhance your living areas. Remember most room dividers do take up a substantial amount of wall surface area so the effect can be as dramatric as you wish.
Here is a list of colours and their affect on mood and energy from a Feng Shui perspective.
- Blue – relaxing and soothing
- Purple – healing or meditation
- Green- peaceful and calming
- Yellow – cheerful and energetic
- White – neutral and detached
- Red – luck and courage
- Orange – social and lively conversations
- Brown – energize your confidence and calm your mind
- Black – protection and power
