Feng Shui a Basement Apartment for Wealth, Health and More

  
  
  
feng shui basement apartmentIn many cities, real estate is scarce and many people, especially men and women on their own for the first time, rent basement apartments as a way to save money.

A basement is not necessarily “bad” Feng Shui. You can still be successful, and attract wealth, good health and more, in a basement apartment.

Take the time to create a space where you are comfortable and take measures to be sure the chi can flow freely.

Follow these tips for Feng Shui living in a basement apartment.

1. Slow the flow of chi down the stairs. Many basement apartments have a long, narrow staircase leading to the living area. Encourage the flow of chi, and welcome opportunities into your living space, by making sure this entryway is well-lit. Paint it a light color and and place mirrors along the stairwell to open the space.

2. Let in the light! Some basement apartments have small windows, creating a dark, cramped-looking space. Do everything you can to encourage natural sunlight into the space by not blocking the windows. Use lamps with bulbs that mimic the sun's rays to make up for the lack of natural sunlight in the apartment.

3. Ask your landlord if you can paint the space. Light, bright colors to give your basement apartment a more open feel that won't make you feel blocked or stuck.
 
4. Control humidity for better health. A dehumidifier can improve your health in a basement apartment by preventing mold and mildew and getting rid of that “basement feel” in the space. Open windows whenever possible to welcome fresh air.

5. Add live plants to connect you with the outside world. Living in a basement apartment can often make people feel secluded, which can lead to depression. Bamboo is one plant that grows well in limited light.
