Recently, a question was posted to me about placing 2 siblings in a room for a house audit. The person in question has concern about her options as putting a double deck bed may cause issues to her kids.
Some of the questions posted include if it meant bad luck for her kids as the double deck bed would have a less than normal ceiling height. Other areas include if it may mean not the most favourable direction for her 2 children. Genuine concerns faced by a new home dweller especially if she has children.
In Feng Shui applications in the house, we not only look at direction or the facing during considerations (in fact at times it may be a lesser prioritise factor). In the past, I notice at times, some clients may already have a fix mindset about certain direction facing. With that, they align furniture based on this favourable direction but at the expense of other areas. Examples: sofa with back facing main door. Bed tilted at 45 degrees within a bedroom. These are bad orientations of furniture within the house.
Nevertheless, I have explained that to the lady that the considerations are valid. Having a double deck bed is no issue, though are the options we have exhaustive? A bigger overview of factors need to be considered. This which can be achieved during a house audit and the study of the floor plan – not through just the furniture considerations and direction. Through this, we can then enhance and select the most suitable area depending on the usage within the house. Since it is the bedroom, health considerations is key and more than just the furniture needs to be studied.
Ultimately, we want to ensure the best for the family in health, relationship and wealth, key factors to look at when we audit a house. The end result would be a harmonized home through tapping on studies of Feng Shui.
