The dining space is the only space in a home where all family members sit together for a minimum of two meals. Isn’t it the best time of the day when all members unite to have food? Feng shui is believed to channel the energy in a home appropriately, bringing peace and harmony to the home, its dwellers, and to the food they eat.
Here’s how you can use Feng Shui to create and maintain a conducive and lovable ambiance around your dining space.
1. Choosing the right shape of the table:
Most homes have a rectangular dining table. The rectangle shape is considered most appropriate as the seats face each other directly, and conversations can be made face to face. But what most of us are unaware of is that the sharp edges of a rectangular table are said to shoot arrows of poison. A round or an oval table depicts continuity and flow since it has no edges and sharp corners. So when following Feng Shui, the best-shaped table to get is round or oval.
2. Placement of doors and windows near the table:
Although doors and windows encourage the flow of wind and energies, they allow the flow of positive and negative energies too. So, avoid keeping the dining table right in front of the doors or windows to attract negative energies. If this placement is unavoidable, then add a wind chime or a pendulum chandelier to negate the effects of such placement.
3. Seating placement:
Feng shui encourages reserving a seat for the oldest person in the family at an honoured position. The best seat is supposed to have a wall behind it and offer a good view of things around.
4. Type of furniture:
Dining tables are mostly made from solid wood and sleek iron, and the top can be made from either wood or glass. Glass looks stylish, but according to Feng Shui, a glass tabletop invites negative or bad energy. On the other hand, a wooden tabletop absorbs negative energy and floats positive energy.
5. Table-setting details:
Simple shapes of plates, spoons, and other crockery invite calming energies. Opt for single or dual color tones. If you wish to have designs, use simple designs such as stripes. A vertical stripe design uplifts the energy. Chipped crockery, glassware, and broken articles should be removed instantly as they break the flow of good energy.
A dining space should have calming lights. You can opt for a central light over the main dining area. A mirror placement just adjacent to the dining table is said to double everything, the food and the happiness. This is a sign of good energy.
Feng shui can be one of the best ways to attract good vibes and the right flow of energy into your dining space. Small little details in your dining space can benefit your family as this is one of the most important places in your home.
