Let’s say that within the last two weeks, you turned in the keys to your first apartment. Now you’ve got your first townhouse. Whether you rent or own it, that’s still an exciting milestone in your life and your life with your growing family. But then you find out that your kitchen is next to a bathroom. What should you do about it, especially if you are worried about the feng shui implications of this situation? We can offer some bathroom ideas to get you started.
Shut the Bathroom Door
The first thing you should do is to shut the bathroom door. When someone is using it, you’ll typically find the door closed. But even when it’s unoccupied, make sure the door to the bathroom stays closed so it won’t bother you while you are in the kitchen. Besides the obvious implications of odor problems, feng shui beliefs further illustrate why leaving the bathroom door open all the time is a bad idea: the primary energies of release and nourishment conflict.
Make It Fun
Going to the bathroom is usually unpleasant, but there’s no question you feel a massive sense of relief once you finish. But you shouldn’t hesitate to make your bathroom a fun place to spend time in; it’s easy to do this. Keep your bathroom clean and reduce the amount of clutter in it. Whether you decorate it with a bright, cheerful theme, or put some points of interest to distract from the less than desirable paint on the walls, you can cleanse and infuse the bathroom with positive energy.
Separate the Rooms
A door presents an obvious barrier that can also provide some measure of privacy. Even if the bathroom has a door, and it should, that doesn’t guarantee the kitchen will. In fact, the way into the kitchen might just be an opening paired with a pass-through. Try using a houseplant or a bamboo screen, or even glass. It just depends on the disposition of the entryway between the kitchen and the bathroom.
Use Different Colors
Look at the wall next to the kitchen. Then look at the wall opposite it, which could be close to the bathroom. Paint these walls in two different colors which will help distribute the feng shui energy.
