It can be hard to come up with the right, positive, good Feng Shui friendly space saving studio apartment ideas as well as get the money to put them into action.
But lucky for you, I am about to give you some of my best tips on how to decorate a studio apartment on a budget, while also maintaining all of the essential Feng Shui dos and avoiding the dangerous don’ts.
From mirrors, to windows, to stairs, to kitchen appliances, you are about to find out the best way to optimize all of your space, save money, and maintain positive energy in your little home.
1. Your Front Door and Doorway
The main door, or, front door, is one of the most important parts of having good Feng Shui in your home. In fact, it is so important that it is considered “the mouth of Chi,” or also known as “universal energy.”
When you have only one door in a studio apartment, it is very important to make sure that the doorway is clear in order to achieve good Feng Shui.
An open entryway allows more positive energy to enter in, therefore also spreading into your living area, sleeping area, and kitchen area all in one.
However, the more crowded and closed off your entryway space is, the less amount of good energy you will have fitting through your door.
2. Your Bedroom Area
Although your sleeping area might be small and a part of one entire room, it is still very important to take into consideration when striving for good Feng Shui.
For one, it is important that you have enough space to separate your living area and your bedroom area.
If you are having a hard time to determining where your sleeping area should be, just simply take into consideration what you would see as the first thing when you wake up and the last thing as you go to sleep at night.
These things shouldn’t be items such as a television, computer, or a laundry basket. These all provide for bad Feng Shui when they are the first and last things you see, as they inspire negative energy or disruption of positive energy.
It is also important to ensure that you don’t have a mirror placed above your headboard. This causes for bad health, disruption of sleep, stirs up the atmosphere, and overall produces a very bad Feng Shui.
3. Your Mirrors in the Apartment
Mirrors are very troubling and complicated things in Feng Shui. As part of the Nine Essential Chi Adjustments, mirrors can either cure problems or cause problems and bad Feng Shui if they aren’t positioned properly or are in a bad location.
They are also considered the aspirin of Feng Shui, primarily because they attract light, make the space feel bigger, and invite in water Feng Shui energy.
While they can be complicated as far as location goes, they are perfect for a small studio apartment due to the fact that they make the space feel much bigger and more airy.
It is also believed that mirrors, when used the right way, can also increase your breathing room.
However, location is still key. It is best to place your mirrors in a position where they either reflect light or something make a larger display of something beautiful in your apartment. But if you aren’t having any luck with that, the best spots for mirrors are in the East, Southeast, and North bagua areas of your studio.
Making Your Studio Apartment Feng Shui Friendly on a Budget
We’ve talked about all the different ways to attract good Feng Shui in your studio apartment, but now we are going to shift gears and discuss how to do so on a low budget.
My first suggestion is to simply make use of the resources and the space you already have. Rearrange until you have run out of ideas.
Also, if your apartment is looking dull and needs something artistic and pretty to look at to inspire more positive energy, I recommend going to a thrift store, garage sale, or shopping online retail shops to find cheap and used but beautifully designed art pieces.
