Does Chi energy rush down your stairs too quickly?
Do the stairs feel overly steep or forbidding?
If you have a problematic staircase, here’s a beautiful Feng Shui adjustment that goes both ways, slowing Chi energy down while inviting you to ascend:
If these particular stairs were painted solid white, the effect would be disorienting and somewhat difficult to navigate.
- Chi energy (and people!) would be likely to cascade down the stairs in a somewhat out-of-control manner.
- At the same time, the solid white would create a wall-like feeling, not exactly what you’d feel like climbing every day!
Painted risers create an interesting buffer that absorbs some of the natural energy of the stairs.
And the lovely idea here of using multiple shades of the same color adds energy without being overly busy.
How have you Feng-Shui’d your stairs?
