How to feng shui a hotel Feng shui is the ancient Chinese art of placement and arrangement of objects and spaces to create balance and harmony in the environment. Here are some basic tips on how to feng shui a hotel but with a survey it’s an individual assessment and likely very different from the basic approach.

Clear the clutter: A cluttered space creates stagnant energy and blocks the flow of chi. Make sure to declutter the hotel lobby and guest rooms, removing any unnecessary objects or items.

Enhance the flow of chi: The flow of chi is essential in feng shui. Make sure the entrance of the hotel is unobstructed and easy to find, with a clear pathway leading to the reception desk. Also, make sure the lobby area is open and spacious, allowing for the free flow of energy.

Choose the right colours: The colour of a hotel room can influence the energy of the space. Neutral colours such as beige, white, or light grey are recommended, as they promote calmness and relaxation. Avoid dark or bright colours, as they can create a sense of unease.

Place furniture in the right position: In feng shui, the position of furniture can affect the energy flow of a room. Make sure that the hotel room furniture is positioned in a way that allows for the free flow of energy.

Use natural materials: Incorporating natural materials like wood, stone, or plants can help bring positive energy into the space. Consider adding potted plants or greenery to the hotel lobby and guest rooms.

Provide a comfortable bed: A comfortable and supportive bed is crucial in feng shui. Make sure the beds in hotel rooms are positioned in a way that allows for easy access and has a clear view of the room.

Balance the elements: Feng shui is based on the five elements (water, wood, fire, earth, and metal). Incorporate these elements into the hotel design to create a balanced and harmonious environment. For example, a water feature can be added to the lobby, or wooden accents can be used in the guest rooms.

By following these tips, you can create a feng shui hotel that promotes balance, harmony, and positive energy. Following a full survey the information given will allow the designer to create a unique space for the client.
