Feng Shui in House Design (Geomancy)

Also known as Chinese geomancy, Feng Shui is the Chinese practice of using energy forces to harmonise individuals with their surrounding environment.

Feng Shui can be controlled to some extent, with lots of different design and decoration techniques that can be used to change the Feng Shui of a house. There are a large number of people who focus on Feng Shui when they buy a new homeso we’ve come up with five important Feng Shui considerations:

Strong entrance

A house can attract good Feng Shui energy only when it has a strong front door and a good main entry.

Master bedroom

In Feng Shui, the master bedroom is the most important room in the house and high quality Feng Shui energy in the bedroom is crucial for health and well being. It’s important to choose the right location for the main bedroom when deciding on the floor plan of your house and there are several factors to consider when identifying the best location for a bedroom:

  • It’s best to have the main bedroom above an area with peaceful or balanced activity – because a good energy foundation ensures peaceful nourishing energy to support deep sleep and healing. On a two storey floor plan, one of the best placements of a bedroom is above a quiet reading area, or above the dining/breakfast nook.
  • The best location is in the back of the house or behind the centre line of the house. A good bedroom is slightly hidden from the main energy traffic and cocooned in a safe, nourishing and powerful energy.

No clutter

An orderly space with no clutter is the best feng shui foundation for your new home. This means that ideally, you have dealt with your clutter before moving to your new space.


Natural cross ventilation and airflow is a significant consideration when building a new home. In Feng Shui a lack of windows will bring a bad convection of air both inside and outside the house, so widows and airflow is important consideration.
