Feng Shui and Your Bathroom

Special care and attention should be paid to bathroom design for two major reasons: firstly, they are considered ‘wet’ rooms because of the amount of water in its most natural state in taps, sinks etc. and secondly because this is the point at which sewage exits the property.

Special care and attention should be paid to bathroom design for two major reasons: firstly, they are considered ‘wet’ rooms because of the amount of water in its most natural state in taps, sinks etc. and secondly because this is the point at which sewage exits the property.
This means that bathrooms must be carefully designed to avoid either flooding or draining the property, since this very important room can easily fall out of balance because of poor Feng Shui. This, in turn, can drain the residents’ energy, cause bowel problems and lead to finances draining away.

Ideally bathrooms should be placed in specific areas according to the Feng Shui calculations for each property. Despite our obsession with hygiene, the number of bathrooms in any property should be limited, since too many will result in too much energy leaving the property. Of course, every case is different and ideally you should be guided by a Feng Shui Master, who will be able to advise you.

Feng Shui Myths
Many people ask if they should always leave the toilet seat down. The short answer is that it really doesn’t matter – in fact in some cases it is actually better left up!

However, keeping the bathroom door closed IS important.

Contrary to popular opinion it is perfectly all right to have a mirror in the bathroom.
