Long hallways present a special challenge in Feng Shui because they give Chi energy the opportunity to rush through a space, causing us to miss out on its benefits.
My own home has this challenge, so I thought you might enjoy seeing the the Feng Shui design I created to resolve it. (Note the extra difficulty of doors that lead outdoors at the end of this hallway.)
Here’s what I did to slow down the Chi.
- Created “Chi distractors” in the front entryway with a circular floor medallion and good lighting in the lively chandelier.
- Created an archway to define the start of the hallway, giving the Chi a signal that a new space has begun.
- Placed two small rugs in hallway itself with interesting patterns that encourage the Chi to slow down and enjoy the experience of this hallway.
- Placed a plant near the back door to prevent the Chi from rushing straight out.
- Hung sheer curtains over the doors to further help contain the Chi.
It’s hard to see but we also hung artwork on the walls, which further serves to attract and slow down the moving energy.
I’d love to hear what you think about some of these ideas. Let me know in the Comments!
