Feng Shui And Interior Design

What is Feng Shui and how come it always comes up along with home design or something like that? If you are wondering, then let us shed some light on what it really is and what is it all about.

Feng Shui pronounced "fung shway" in English was known in the past as Kan-Yu which means "The Law of Heaven and Earth". Feng Shui schools teach that it is the ancient Chinese art of placement and arrangement of space to achieve harmony with the environment. Although it sounds as easy as keeping your new car away from the sight of your nosy neighbors, it really is not. I mean, if it was being taught thousands or hundreds of years ago, how come only few are considered Feng Shui masters or whatever they call them.

Supporters and those who practice it claim that with the help of this technique, they can bring better aura to a home. If a business establishment is designed with the aid of Feng Shui, chances are, it will prosper, or so they say. Since there is no way one can measure the real effect of Feng Shui on the fate of an establishment or home, it is impossible to turn everyone into believers. In fact, critics of the Chinese practice call it pseudoscience.

But then, there is nothing wrong about trying something new. Check out a home designed with Feng Shui aid and see if you like it. If it looks good to you, then maybe it's time to call that Feng Shui expert.
