Feng-shui is a time defining Chinese system for arranging a room. The process involves designing a space that harmonizes your energy with your home. When remodeling a home, there are numerous things to consider. The colors, in particular, should mirror the theme and energy in the room. Choosing the right colors can provide the right feng shui for each room in your home if done correctly. Consider these colors for the ultimate energy alignment.
Feng Shui for Bedrooms
The best color options for bedrooms include earth tones like various shades of brown and flesh tones pastels like light sages and muted colors. When one gets to the bedroom, they should feel calm. Since it’s a place to relax from a hectic day, use earthly colors to promote the feeling of being grounded. The colors should not be bright or depressingly dark. For children, rooms painted a sage green with pink, purple, or both as accessories are ideal.
Feng Shui for Bathrooms
The best color for bathrooms are earth tones, pastels, and whites.

Fire and water are both active elements in the kitchen and since we use dangerous things like knives there should be a calming, watery colors filling the room. The kitchen is also an area for excessive activity so there should be hints of colors that replicate that energy.
Feng Shui for Living Areas
For dining, living, and family rooms, one should use earth tones, muted colors, and pastels for the promotion of calmness, being grounded, and relaxation. Home office colors should be bright to increase activity when working. No dark colors or water elements should be present in work spaces. Some more active spaces in the home include:
