Feng Shui Tips for Selling a House

Feng shui is a Chinese art based on the principle that energy, or”chi,” flows through everything–people, houses and objects. In feng shui belief, the positioning of furniture and other items in your house can influence the circulation of chi: If the energy flow is obstructed, potential buyers considering your house will feel drawback. A good flow, on the other hand, will give the buyers a good sense about your house.

Clean and Tidy

Making mandatory repairs, eliminating clutter and keeping your house clean before you show it are practical actions to a purchase, but they also improve the chi circulation, the Feng Shui For Kitchens website states. Organizing clutter or throwing it out will give vendors better results than simply stuffing it into a closet. It also helps the chi flow if vendors replace any dead plants within their house with live ones.


Doors are important to the chi flow and Feng Shui for Kitchens recommends assessing that every door can open and shut freely. Open all of your windows and doors once a week to boost chi flow, the Feng Shui Chinese website says, but if it is time for your showing, all internal doors should be shut. The front door and the area around it must be free of any chi blocks as possible. Homeowners must get rid of any mess that is left from the door, trimming back overgrown shrubbery and be certain that the entry is well-lit. After the door opens, visitors need to be able to make an easy entry, without having to detour around any barriers.

Improve Chi in Empty Rooms

Chi is built up by rooms that are empty, the Feng Shui website says. Sellers should use the rooms for something each and every single day, even if it’s just reading or sitting. Sellers also needs to turn a light in every vacant room for three or more hours a day.
