Separate your home office from your bedroom

The first Feng shui home office tip is to separate your bedroom from your home office. If your home layout allows you to have a separate access to your home office the better. In case this is not possible, at least make sure there is enough division between your bedroom and home office. Having a home office near your bedroom is not a good idea because it interferes with your personal life and work life. Separating your home office from your bedroom is a wonderful starting point of having a good Feng shui home office.

Decorate your home office inspiration, productivity and success in mind

To have that high energy Feng shui home office, hang pictures, images and career memorabilia that showcase what you want to achieve. Also, use appropriate décor materials and Feng shui colours to spruce up your home office so that it motivates you and makes you feel successful. Don’t be afraid to fully express your creativity and what you want to achieve through your home décor.

Pay attention to natural lighting and quality air

Working in a dark office will drain you of your energy, which is why it is advisable you avoid basement and other dim room. In case your brain is lacking adequate oxygen to think clearly, you will find it hard working from your home office. Feng shui focuses on quality air and natural lighting of your home office, so that it can bring energy to your space and enhance your personal energy. Consider using plants that purify the air and full spectrum lights in your home office.

Arrange your office desk according to the command position

In Feng shui home office, you are supposed to place your desk in one of the command or power positions so that you can see the people who are entering your office. The door is where the stream of energy comes from. Having your desk next to the door is not a good position. Instead, choose the opposite side of the door as a command position to place your desk. An ideal Feng shui home office should have your back against the wall so that you can see the entire room. This will make you feel like you are in command and authority.

Feng shui home office tip advocates for decluttering your space

Working in a cluttered space drains your energy. You can set aside a day on your calendar to declutter your home office so that you can let energy flow freely in your space. This will go a long way in improving your motivation and bring the energy to work from your home office.
