Creating more room in a small space
For the longest time I always had to laugh when people referred to Feng Shui. Seriously? Its just moving things around. Really doesn’t need a fancy name. Right?
I recently looked at my kids bedrooms and realised that their space to play, or really what would govern a “proper bedroom” was seriously lacking.
Feng Shui: (in Chinese thought) 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.
Somehow in the setting up of their rooms, when they got their big boy and girl beds, it was placed headboard against wall with bed running down the middle of the room. Essentially cutting the room in half. This making a small room look tiny. And obviously giving neither of them the room they needed to play in their own space.
In hindsight, I should have taken a “before” shot before making my changes in each room. But this blog (as well as the rooms) is a work in progress as there is much I still want to do. So there will be plenty of pics coming.
In the meantime, the kids are so much happier with the new room rearrangement. And strangely seem more at ease. Could be that Feng Shui energy flow. I might have to investigate this theory further. 🙂
They now have enough floor space to play etc. And of this, I totally have pics 😉
All in all, progress is being made. 🙂
