Feng Shui Bathroom Location: What It Means

Is your bathroom located in your wealth area?

Or is it located in your knowledge area, career area or relationship area?

What if your bathroom is located above your front door or over your kitchen?

Does it mean that your money, relationship and career are being flushed down the drain?

Understand this, there can be a lot of FEAR associated with the location of your bathroom in Feng Shui.

So today I’m tackling the question of, “ What does the position of my bathroom mean?” head-on.

Feng Shui Your Bathroom With These 3 Low Cost Tips

Self-nurturing is important if you are to look and feel your best in order to have the most energy to go after your goals. Your bathroom is the ideal place for self-nurturing.

If your bathroom currently doesn’t have that feel, you can make some very simple, low cost changes to transform it into a place of renewal.

1. Change the Bathroom Colors – Paint is a very inexpensive way to enhance a space. Since color is very crucial to good Feng Shui, consider what colors are best for your bath.  Those colors are green, yellow, blue, silver sage, lavender, and yellow. Because the bathroom already has an enormous amount of water energy, using colors that incorporate the “wood” element, such as lighter shades of blues and greens, balance the water element.

2. Add Scent – We equate the use of scent in bathrooms with a “spa-like” atmosphere. Scents are very evocative and encourage a positive, but also very relaxing flow of chi into the space. Small pots of fresh herbs, such as lavender, rosemary or sage, add calming scents to the space, while also offsetting the water element in the room. Herbs are very inexpensive plants that have strong healing powers in addition to wonderful fragrance.

3. Organize  – Organizing the items in your bathroom provides two positive Feng Shui opportunities. You are removing clutter and you are bringing in elements that balance the space. Using natural baskets to corral unsightly items balances the water element and is a nice decorative touch.

Feng Shui Aroma: 7 Natural Scents To Feng Shui Your Surroundings

I often recommend infusing your home with natural scents in order to engage the senses. While fresh, welcoming scents in any form can create the ambiance you want to achieve, it's best to use natural variations.

Here are some natural, scented products that can introduce positive chi into your home or apartment and may also have powerful aromatherapy properties to make you feel calmer, happier, have more energy or even increase your sex drive.

1. Use live flowers like lavender or roses in vases. Remember to replace flowers as soon as they begin to die.

2. Use live herbs like mint to create a subtle but natural scent and a great, natural look in any space!

3. Consider real incense, often imported from Tibet. This also has powerful aromatherapy properties. You'll notice the difference.

4. Use soy or beeswax candles infused with natural scents. Do not display candles in the bathroom or kitchen, as this adds too much fire element to the space. It's okay to burn candles in these areas for short times, but keep them tucked away when not in use.

5. Essential oils create powerful scents. A little bit goes a long way.

6. Evergreen plants give off a great, homey scent in your foyer or living room.

7. Bake! An apple pie, oatmeal cookies... by using your oven, you're activating positive chi for fame and recognition, but you're also filling your home with great aromas that will welcome guests and make them smile.

Feng Shui Aromatherapy: How To Feng Shui Your Home with Uplifting Scents

The sense of smell is a powerful thing; it inspires specific emotions, motivates us, or anchors us into past, hopefully pleasant, memories. The scent of our favorite childhood foods, salt air at the beach ... any of these may be a powerful trigger that takes us back to the emotions we felt at the time: comfort, freedom, happiness.

Feng Shui and Our Senses

Feng Shui is not just about how a space looks and feels; scents, textures, and sounds set a specific mood, too. Use the power of scents as a component of Feng Shui in your entryway. Greet guests with the scent of oranges, mint, or home-cooked foods.

Scents in the Bathroom and Kitchen

The bathroom and kitchen are two logical places for welcoming scents. Steer clear of scented candles in the kitchen or anything to mask natural cooking odors, which are pleasant and welcoming. Cook frequently, as it activates your stove -- one of the three most important areas in Feng Shui -- and fills your home with pleasant scents.

In the bathroom, lavender, rosemary and other herbs offer a grounding smell that can help you and your guests relax.

Scents in Unusual Spaces

You can use scents to raise the chi in any space. Consider placing a bowl of oranges (also considered good luck in Feng Shui) on the dining room table, or place a small potted evergreen in your hallway.

Natural Scents

Use scents from fresh and natural sources. I often recommend real incense (not the artificially scented sticks you'll find in malls or mass market stores), live herbs, or fruit to fill a home with scents and avoid toxic artificial scents from room deodorizers.

I'd like to share a lot more tips to make your home more welcoming and stay healthy with Feng Shui - so I've set up a risk-free trial copy of my eBook "Feng Shui Secrets." You'll learn EXACTLY what it takes to Feng Shui your home so your goals happen fast... and so you're never just "struggling with your life" situations again.

Bathroom Feng Shui: How To Select The Placement Of The Bathroom In A New Home

Building a new home opens the door to lots of possibilities. You can work with an architect -- and a Feng Shui consultant -- to create a new residence that is in alignment with your goals and your personal chi.

In Feng Shui terms, bathroom placement is a major consideration when building a new home, since the bathroom can affect our finances, our health and our confidence.

Since the bathroom is such a critical aspect in Feng Shui, it's actually easier to talk about where not to place the bathroom. In most cases, you can help reflect the flow of chi (and energy and good fortune) down the bathroom drains by placing a full-length mirror on the outside of the bathroom door, but it's still best not to place a bathroom in the following locations:

- Don't place a bathroom along the home's central line, the three center trigrams of the Ba Gua, and especially not in the central palace.

- The bathroom should not face the kitchen, since the kitchen (and especially the stove) represents your wealth, recognition, career and how you are viewed by others, as well as the health and energy our bodies derive from the food we eat. A bathroom facing the kitchen can encourage wealth being flushed away. (Note: in many homes, due to plumbing considerations, a bathroom will share a wall with the kitchen. This is very practical, cost-effective, and not bad Feng Shui.

- Bathrooms should not face bedrooms, as this can affect the health and well-being of the home's residents. Similarly, a bathroom should not be located directly above a bedroom.

- Do not place a bathroom at the end of a long corridor, since rushing chi down the hallway can negatively affect the home's residents' health, especially their digestive and reproductive health.

How To Feng Shui Your Faucets and Drains

Since our home or apartment can reveal important information about our lives, it pays to look at different areas of your living space to see what it may be telling us about our lives, finances and health.

We may not realize how small things in our environment can be draining our energy, our health and our wealth. This is especially true regarding the flow of water in our home through faucets and drains. 


Dripping faucets can indicate an overall feeling of wastefulness or a lack of energy. You should fix these immediately. Leaky faucets also adversely affect our wealth, not just with a higher water bill, but with an overall feeling of income “dripping away” each week. 


Drains that are clogged up can indicate that you are feeling overwhelmed in your life -- with tasks, bad news, and just an overall sense of anxiety or misfortune bubbling over. It can also indicate that you are feeling blocked -- especially in regard to health, finances or  opportunities. Is  there some problem facing you that is getting progressively worse, and you can't seem to find a solution? Clear out those drains -- along with using these Feng Shui tips for your front entrance -- and see if the chi doesn't improve in your space, paving the way to problem-solving opportunities.

On the other hand, a drain plug that doesn't keep the water in when you need it can have the same affect as a leaky faucet -- money and energy trickling down the drain. Invest in the money to fix this, so you can enjoy the spa-like experience of a warm bath if you want, and you'll also be taking another step toward symbolically creating less waste.

Feng Shui Wealth Analysis: Is Your Home “Making” You Spend Money?

There are many reasons people spend money -- even money they don't have. J. Money offers fantastic budgeting and financial tips on his blog at Budgets Are Sexy.com. But if you've been following financial advice and still can't seem to attract wealth into your life -- there could be other factors at play.

Feng Shui is an ancient eastern art and science that helps people harness the chi (life energy) of their living environment to help them achieve their goals and live a more fulfilling life. Unfortunate home layouts, floor plans that prevent chi from moving smoothly through a space, “missing” areas of your home and other “Feng Shui don'ts” may contribute to your financial issues.

The Universe is energy (chi). We are energy. Even money -- and the things money can buy -- is made up of energy. By making sure all the energy in your space is aligned to work together, you'll see greater success in all areas of your life.

Feng Shui Results
I recently visited the home of a client who is an aspiring musician and actress. She confessed she hadn't been writing much music and hadn't seen much success in her career recently. We moved her piano to the “wealth” corner of her living room, and encouraged the flow of chi around that space. This video of my audition for a Feng Shui televison program on Oprah's new network, OWN-TV, reveals the amazing results she experienced.

Feng Shui Factors that Block Wealth -- And How to Fix Them

Let's look at some common factors in people's homes that may be blocking their financial success. Do any of these situations sound like your home?

Staircase leading directly to your home's main entrance - A tall, narrow staircase that begins at your entryway causes chi to rush out of your house rapidly -- and with it, your opportunities for income and, quite often, your cash. If you find yourself spending money beyond your means, getting hit with emergency expenses regularly, and if money seems to leave your hands as quickly as it enters, the staircase could be contributing to the problems.

To slow the flow of chi down the staircase, hang wind chimes  from the ceiling at the bottom of the stairs, between the staircase and your front door. The best wind chimes have five tubes, representing the five elements in Feng Shui.

Bathroom in clear view of entryway - If your bathroom is in the clear view of your entryway, you may experience wasteful spending. Your money may literally get “flushed down the toilet.” Keep your bathroom door closed, and hang an octagonal mirror on the bathroom door to deflect the chi.

Dirty/unused stove - Your stove, along with your home's entryway and your master bedroom, is one of three most important areas of your home, according to Feng Shui principles. Your stove represents your wealth, career, and how people view you in the world. If your stove is dirty, broken, or you don't use it frequently, you may find your career and income adversely affected.

Keep your stove clean, and make an attempt to use all four burners regularly -- even if you're only boiling water.

You can also place a mirror behind and to the side of your stove, in order to “multiply” your wealth.

Missing “wealth corner” - Feng Shui consultants use a plan called a “ba gua,” which divides your home into nine separate sections. If you lay out the ba gua over your home's floor plan, the Wealth corner will be in the left back corner if you are standing at the doorway and looking into the room. If chi can't flow freely through this corner -- or if this area of the room is cluttered or missing -- it can lead to money problems. Placing a water element, such as a small fountain or a fish tank with live fish, in this corner will encourage the flow of chi and help improve your financial situation.

Use Your Intention to Attract Wealth
Feng Shui consultants use a combination of practical means and Feng Shui cures to help clients improve their situation. Mindful spending and following the principles outlined by J. Money on this site, combined with following these easy Feng Shui tips, can help you improve your financial situation.

How The First Room You See in Your Home Can Affect You & Your Guests

The first room you see in your home can affect how guests feel when they enter your house or apartment, and also the areas which will get the greatest focus in your life.

While the three most important areas of a home are the entrance, master bedroom and kitchen, the other rooms can have significant impact, too -- especially the first room someone sees when they enter the home.

The following is a list of rooms in many houses or apartments, and how their placement near the home's main entrance can affect the home's inhabitants according to the principles of Feng Shui.

Foyer: A large, spacious foyer is a good way to welcome opportunities into your life. Foyers should be well-lighted, clean and inviting. You can make a space even more welcoming with the addition of live plants or wind chimes.

Living room: A living room is very auspicious to have near your home's entrance. Residents -- and guests -- will tend to relax and feel at home.

Study: If you have a study, den or home office near the entrance, expect residents to be focused on education, learning and fulfillment.

Kitchen: If the first room people see when they enter your home is a kitchen, your family life will be focused heavily on food. In fact, it may even encourage over-eating, especially with children. Guests, too, will come only to “ eat and run.” If this is the case in your home, you can place a screen or other barrier that will obscure the view of the kitchen from the front door. This is especially important if you can see the stove from the front door.

Bathroom: It's not auspicious to have a bathroom in clear view of the front door. This can affect health and wealth adversely. You may find your money being “flushed away.” Your health may suffer, and your home's residents may spend too much time on personal care in the bathroom. They may become obsessed with their appearance. Placing a mirror on the outside of the bathroom door can deflect this negative energy. Remember to keep the bathroom door closed, too.

Bedroom: Having a bedroom in clear view of your home's entrance could be making you feel tired all the time. Hang a mirror on the bedroom door and see if your energy increases.

Would you like to know if the home or apartment you're thinking of moving into will help you achieve your goals? I can help with home selection as part of my Feng Shui consulting services. We will consider the layout of the rooms, the architecture and landscaping, the neighborhood, and the overall chi of the space in order to help you select a residence where you and your family can thrive.
