In a house, bathroom is not considered a very important and productive place. It is the place is where we wash off all the dirt and clean our body, but still everybody ignores the significance of this place and nobody pays any attention to it. In Feng Shui also, it is not considered too much, but it is surely not ignored. Though it does possess some negativity, but it is not purely negative. Feng Shui also states that bathroom should have attributes like cleanliness, comfort and convenience.
The reason why it is considered such a problem is that it has a
draining effect wherever it is located. Therefore, the location of the
bathroom poses difficulty and should be carefully chosen. This is to
prevent any difficulty with regard to the flow of energy, Chi. Bagua,
the Feng Shui map of space, does not accommodate the bathroom in it,
which further enhances the difficulty. The most troublesome locations of
the bathroom are just next to or above the front door or on the second
floor above the kitchen.
The reason being, the location in the entrance hall will drain away the
energy as soon as it enters the house, without giving it a chance to
circulate in other parts. The bathroom on the second floor above the
main door will fill the entrance with negative Chi. A bathroom located
above the kitchen will extinguish the fire element of the kitchen, which
will badly affect health and prosperity. However, the most perilous
position of the bathroom is the center of the house, where it will
undermine the complete energy of the whole house.
Bathroom is the place for cleanliness and purification. Thus it should
always be kept clean and tidy, so as to minimize the ill effects which
might be caused. Moreover, if your bathroom is located at any of the
above mentioned problematic places, it becomes even more important to
keep it uncluttered and well lit. In addition, you should apply the
necessary Feng Shui objects to minimize the ill effects. All this will
ensure you that your bathroom becomes an active place which kick starts
your day energetically.
Water element is present in the bathroom, so it should be towards the
north direction, which supports the element. Do not keep the entire décor
of the bathroom in white color. Apply earthy colors to it, like pastel
browns and yellows. You can also add aroma candles, soft music, fluffy
towels and creative art work, to make your bathroom attractive and
inviting. Enjoying a hot water bath, with scented bath salts, is always
a delight and reenergizes one completely. So, don't forget to savor the
luxury of a nice bathroom.
