If you have a bathroom

Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese discipline that deal with making your living and working space harmonious simply by arranging your rooms the correct way. Even though it sounds extremely easy, Feng Shui can actually be fairly difficult to achieve properly. There are thousands of different ways that you can arrange things, and each way gives a different energy to your home. You can use Feng Shui in your office to promote wealth and the ability to work well, or in your kitchen to promote creativity. You can also Feng Shui your bedroom to promote attracting, and keeping, the love of your life. If you are looking to feng shui your bedroom for romance, here are a few things that you should do. 1) Starting from Scratch In Feng Shui, the belief is that the energy that is around the person contributes to their life. If you are looking for a new love, you need to clear out space for one, both figuratively and literally. If you look in your bedroom you will probably see a lot of your things.
These things need to go. Your closet, dresser, and table tops should all be clean and neatly organized. Clear out room for your partner by emptying a dresser drawer and by making obvious room in your closet. This will give the energy that you are ready for another person in your life. You can also bring this energy to the rest of the house by making room on your DVD shelves or book shelves. Your bed is very important, not just in Feng Shui, but in the rest of your life, as it gives you a place to rest and should have an air of peace around it. Make sure that your bed is accessible from both sides, because if you do not have room for another person to get into bed with you, there will be no reason for another person to enter your life. Never put the foot of your bed facing towards the door, and always make sure that there quality fabrics and pillows on your bed.
 If you have a bathroom attached to your bedroom, make sure that you close the door to the bathroom at all times. Water can be soothing in feng shui, but it is not good to have a bathroom openly connected to a bedroom. Always keep the door shut. Color is also very important in a bedroom. White promotes peace, but if you are looking for romance in your bedroom you may want to steer clear of that. Try splashing some pink or even a light red on the walls. If you live in an apartment and can not paint the walls, put some pink or red fabric on the walls. It will not only add color to your room, it will help you to send out the energy to attract your mate. 2) Pairs What is a couple but a pair? If you are looking for your pair, make sure you have pairs in your bedroom.
 For instance, if you have a night stand, make sure you have two. If you have a candle, make sure you have two. If you have a painting on the wall, make sure two people are in it. It is also very important to make sure that you have pairs of pillows on your bed when you are looking to find, and keep, a mate. A friend of mine, Louise, was having a lot of difficulties finding the perfect man for her. She had plenty of dates, but none of them ever stuck around. When I went to her home I noticed that her bedroom was set for one. There was no room for anyone else clothing, there was a television in her bedroom, which is horrible in the world of feng shui, and there were almost no pairs at all in her bedroom.
She changed a few things around, making sure as well to keep the door to her master bathroom closed at all times, and was shocked to find that the next gentleman she dated stayed around and filled up the space she had cleared up in her bedroom. Hopefully you have learned a few tips about how to Feng Shui your bedroom in order to attract romance. There are literally hundreds of little steps that you can take to make your bedroom flow correctly, but these big steps will help to get you started in the right direction.



If you keep indoor pets

Do you use an air cleaner for your home environment? If you don't, maybe you should consider getting one soon. No matter how clean and tidy your household may seem, there are billions of germs floating from room to room, looking for human hosts to prey on. An air cleaner will remove or destroy those invisible invaders to keep your breathing air pure and clean, which in turn, will help to keep your family healthy. Many brands of home air cleaners take up little space. Some run on batteries, while others use electricity from a plug-in connection to the socket in any household room. You will need to discuss the amount of area that a single unit can clean. For example, some larger air cleaners can filter the living space of an entire floor level in your home. Other, smaller units may be able to clean a single room.
 If the area is large, like the recreation room in the basement, you may even need to buy two air cleaning systems and place one at each end of the area for thorough filtering capability. How do you know if you need an air cleaner? Most homes can benefit from at least one or more units. Older homes constructed more than thirty years ago may be built of potentially hazardous materials that can break down into airborne particles and contaminate your home's airway passages.
These substances include fiberglass, asbestos, lead, and formaldehyde, among others. Obviously, if you plan to stay in your home, you will want to clear the air of all such fallout that may endanger your health, especially if your family members include young children or elderly relatives. On the other hand, newer homes frequently are built to be airtight for insulation purposes. This prevents the free exchange of indoor with outside air. Inside your home, the air can become stale and stuffy, choked with invisible debris that can stress your lungs or even your cardiovascular system. Pollutants, household chemicals, pet dander, and dust should be removed to provide your lungs with healthy breathing air. Other situations that suggest the need for an air cleaner include home remodeling projects that create a lot of dirt and debris that can circulate through your home's vents and passages.
If you keep indoor pets, especially several, be aware that they can shed fur and skin dander. In addition, their fur can develop an odor that may permeate your home. The use of chemicals for cleaning, painting, or making crafts is another reason to clean the inside air. When you get an air cleaner, find out how to change the filter and how often this should be done. Research the best brands over the Internet, checking product reviews and customer satisfaction ratings. Shop for the best deal when your preferred model goes on sale. Find out what type of guarantee comes with it, and complete the warranty card for mailing. Taking simple steps like these can make breathing in your home a whole lot more comfortable.



The European idea of separating

It has been recently suggested in a national newspaper that we must all start to think 'tiny home for a tiny planet' - an interesting concept. However, it seems a very un-North American concept, given that we are all used to houses twice the size of, say, our European counterparts. How do they live in those small houses? Would we want to? Will we have to? How would we plan to scale down our own living space without giving up the ease and efficiency of our life style? These questions could sound scary, yet less so, if we consider the streamlined designs of motor homes and fifth wheels.
The benefits of living in smaller homes are fairly obvious: less land, less property tax, less building materials, less space to heat, less floor to carpet - you get the idea! The whole picture spells a life that costs less to live. More money to enjoy! If you have ever thought of down-sizing (and in these days of rising food and energy costs, many of us have!), one of the first questions that arises, is what could we do without? Or rather, what would we want to do without? Nothing. Right! So where is the wasted space that we can do away with? This is best answered by considering the way each of us live. The National Builders Movement suggests one way to streamline our living space is to become aware of what we use it for. This can be done by writing a list of all the activities we do in the house, recording where we do them and charting the exact part of a room that we do them in. Already you can probably think of 'unused' parts of certain rooms.
Once you have these activities planned you may realize that only certain parts of each room is required, and you could plan a house with the new 'great room' design and incorporate all your living needs into one area. While giving a very spacious feeling, this idea could actually save square footage as it eliminates corridors and doorways (not to mention whole rooms!). Two or three obvious areas represent wasted space to many designers, these are: formal dining rooms, bathrooms and garages. In the case of the formal dining room, if yours is only used three or four times a year, visualize managing without one.
Problem here: many of us would still want to have a formal dining atmosphere occasionally. However, it is possible to set up a kitchen/dining area in such a way that the ambiance could be changed to 'formal' but only when required. This would be achieved by clever use of lighting and a non invasive system for separating the two functions of food consumption and food preparation. Use of moveable or sliding decorative screens is also an option that could be utilized only when the formal atmosphere was required. In a new home this could save up to 100 square feet and many thousands of dollars. Next comes the bathroom and the realization that most of us actually use it as a reading room, a boudoir for applying make up or to escape for a minute's peace from the children! If we had a more efficient bathroom set up maybe we could manage with one bathroom only!
The European idea of separating the bath tub/shower from the actual toilet means that people may pop in and out of the smallest room in the house more quickly as there is not much of interest in there! In the room that European's call the toilet there is no mirror (so teenagers do not hang about!) and there is a petite wash basin which juts out about nine inches from the wall for the perfunctory hand-rinse. The room is very small - no point in lingering! The garage, even if you have one, can be converted into a mother-in-law suite or teenage den by a simple insulation and dry wall job. A car port offers almost as much protection to a car as a garage in temperate climates. If the man of the house is chafing at the bit, consider converting part of the garage into a workshop! A solid workbench and one wall covered in pegboard to hang tools will free up alot of cupboard space everywhere else. Now that you realize how much space you don't need, you will need to buy a new smaller house, and with the savings maybe book a cruise or two!
