images11

Here are some key items of this element: the color green, east or south-east direction, the symbol of a dragon, and more Yin than Yan energy. The symbols that depict it include flowers, trees, wooden items, rectangular furniture, straw crafts, paper crafts, fabric crafts, and paintings depicting a forest.

Its easy to add this element to your home using special feng shui figurines made of wood. Here are some good examples of such figures, and an explanation of their properties.

Elephant: The elephant figurine will help to make you more powerful and successful. Elephant became the symbol of a just and respected leader in China. The Elephant will help you acquire the necessary qualities to achieve recognition and high status. Place the statuette in your office or near your workplace at home.

Toad: A toad with coins in its hands is a talisman that helps to attract money. You need to place the toad near the entrance door, diagonally. Dont set it too high or too low. A money toad should look at the front door, welcoming wealth into your home. A money toad holds Chinese coins that symbolize prosperity.

Dragon: The dragon will help improve the energy of your home and help you succeed. The Dragon will activate the Yang energy that’s needed for success in new endeavors. The Dragon is one of the 4 protector animals, each of which corresponds to one of the four cardinal points. A dragon guards the eastern direction, so the statue is best put in the eastern sector of your house. However, the dragon embodiment of the feng shui wood element can be placed anywhere.

Dragon on a pearl: The dragon is a symbol of the Yang energy. In China, the dragon also symbolizes rain, which nourishes the earth and makes it fertile. The Dragon brings prosperity. The dragon that sits on the celestial pearl can help to make wishes come true. This figurine can be placed anywhere in your home or office.

Double happiness: The hieroglyph Double Happiness helps to harmonize relationships and strengthen love. In China, it’s a tradition to present this hieroglyph as a wedding gift, so that the newlyweds union remains strong. The hieroglyph is best hung in the south-west part of the bedroom, to attract and maintain love.

The mystic knot: The mystic knot is one of eight characters that appeared on the soles of the Buddha (according to legends). This sign is identified with the endless love, so beautiful that it has no beginning or end. It’s a good idea to hang this sign in the bedroom, to help prevent separations in your relationship.

These figurines are typically carved from a single piece of mahogany tree, Abash tree, and many others. They can become a perfect decoration for your home and help you balance your life using the feng shui wood element.

How to Pack a Living Room

images16

The moving process consists of a lot of different tasks and activities in which the most important task is packing everything you own and the most difficult place to pack in the entire house is the living room because it contains a variety of different items from fragile items like glasses and mirrors to large and heavy items like furniture and television set etc. Never rush into packing a living room without the help of a reliable removals company like Maidenhead Removals because you might end damaging some of your belongings or even hurting yourself in the process. The best way to pack a living room by yourself is by keeping in mind the following things. First of all what you need to do is to take down all the pictures, mirrors, curtains etc from the walls. Packing mirrors and pictures with glass frames need special care so make sure you get professional packing boxes of appropriate sizes and use a lot of cushioning by putting extra amount of bubble wrap or old newspapers to keep them safe. Use a wardrobe box for curtains and blinds. Remove all the fragile items like lamps and glass, and pack them properly and carefully so they do not get damaged or break during the move. If you keep books in the living room, pack them in small boxes and keep them flat so their shape does not get ruined. Also, books are much heavier than they seem so do not pack a lot of them in the same because then there will be the risk of the box ripping open when you lift it up. Secure the cabinet doors and table drawers preferably by locking or sealing them so they do not open during the move because if they do, they might get damaged or even break which will increase your moving costs even more. Clean the rugs properly, roll them up, tie them with tape and then put them in large plastic bags. Furniture like chairs or couches should be shrink-wrapped to ensure they do not get dirty or stained and pack cushions and pillows separately. If you have a piano, it will need special packing material like boxes and safety measures and extra amount of care while transporting it. Or, you can easily hire a professional removals service provider like Croydon Removals to do all that for you. They are highly skilled and experienced and can be very easily afforded if you contact them in advance; they charge extra for last minute jobs.

Arranging Furniture In Your Room

images8

A lot of factors come together when it comes to purchasing furniture. Many people do not think about all of them until after they already have a significant amount of furniture. They run into a problem. They do not know how to arrange all of the furniture they have purchased. Others run into this problem without purchasing any furniture. Some people inherit furniture or they are given furniture as a gift.

It can be quite the task to arrange a lot of furniture. A good place to start is to think about colors. Having a neon green sofa with a plaid yellow couch in the same room is probably a bad idea. That is especially true if the room is painted blue. This is, of course, assuming that an eclectic, strange look is not the goal.

It is important to group together furniture with a similar palette. This does not mean that all of the furniture must match exactly. It is okay to combine black and white or a solid with a pattern. Everything must flow nicely together though. The only person who can determine how well it flows is the one arranging the furniture. If none of the colors work well together, putting new fabric onto the existing furniture might be the perfect option.

The next consideration is the size of the furniture. Putting a sectional to add more seating in a bedroom is very rarely practical. The largest rooms ought to have the largest furniture. The rooms where people hang out the most ought to have the most seating. It should be oriented in a way to focus on what is important. For some families, the furniture should be focused on the television for movie night. Other families may want it focused on the fireplace to get cozy during the cold seasons. The room will make more sense if there is a focal point. It will also make more sense with some flow. No one wants to jump over the furniture inside of a room!

These two factors will help make arranging furniture easier. There really is a very logical pattern to making a room look its best. Furniture is wonderful to have, but it all must be used appropriately. Sometimes, less is more with furniture. It is better to have an open room with less seating than a cluttered room where people feel uncomfortable. Arranging the furniture in an open way can make all of the difference in the world.

Renting a House for Students

images6

If you are a student who goes for learning abroad, then the primary things that you will need to concern for yourself is finding houses for rent. Your living accommodations will make a big impact on your education, and you need to make sure that you take the time to find the best housing for your needs.

If you’re fortunate enough to live at home with your parents during your education, that’s great. However, for those who are striking out on their own, choosing a rental house is going to be important. You can find your options in many different ways, depending on what you want and need.

Some people search for house on rent by first searching for flat mates. If you can’t afford to pay the full price for a rental, it’s often easier to find other people seeking mates or a house to live in. In this case, you can often pair up or find a couple of flat mates and then go forward to find a house together.

Many students stay at university and college hostels during their first year. This is a great way to first familiarize yourself with the education facility you are studying at. It also makes new friends whom you can group together with to find a rental house during your second and subsequent years.

After all, it’s much easier to know what you can afford when you have your flat mates already picked out. Alternatively, you can also find a house that you can live in that is already occupied by people looking for another flat mate.

If you’re searching for a house of your own or houses to rent with others, you will need to make sure that you consider a few things besides the cost of the home. What you can afford is very important; but it is not the only deciding factor. You should also consider the location to your education facility, nearby public transport if you don’t have your own vehicle.

Some houses will rent by the week or month while others will want to let them for a year at a time. Additionally, it is a good idea to draft a budget before you commit to a particular place. Also think about how much money you will need for food each week. This financial exercise will give you a good estimate of what you can afford. You should also consider the other expenses so that you can estimate your expenditures beforehand.

The Convenience Of Buying Furniture Online

images15

For many of us when we want to buy a new item of furniture, whether its something small and relatively simple such as a mirror or a side table or a much bigger piece perhaps a closet or a double bed, we get in the car and head to our nearest out of town furniture superstore in a power center located somewhere miles away.

But did you know that there is an alternative? Did you know that you can also buy furniture online? If youre like me you probably didnt stop to think about that. Ive even looked at a furniture stores website, seen that they deliver, and still gone to the bricks and mortar store. Or maybe thats just me! But buying furniture online is an increasingly popular way of making even big purchases.

From the comfort of your own home, your new sofa, bookshelf, dining table set or water bed (if thats your thing) is just a couple of clicks away. Buy furniture online and youll be saving yourself a wasted Sunday afternoon driving to the store or mall when you could have been enjoying proper family time. The kids will certainly thank you for saving them the trip but also think of the gas money youll be saving too. Treat yourself to a couple of cushion covers with the savings!

The other great thing about buying furniture online is the choice. Many companies who sell fine furniture or handmade items cant afford to have a big retail space, or perhaps they sell from a small showroom or workshop on the other side of the country. Luckily for us, many of these family owned companies have embraced the web and the wider audience it gives them and have the ability to sell via their website.

Buying online from a smaller company, whether fine furniture, antiques, Oriental sideboards, rustic hand carved tables made from reclaimed wood, crystal chandeliers or modern minimalist mirrors are your thing, will show support for small businesses and true craftsmanship. Not only that but youll have a real conversation piece in your home and an item of furniture that will bring you so much more joy to look at and use, than say a self-assembled flat packed closet or bookcase that half the people in your street own too.

In fact the only danger that I can think of with buying furniture off the web is that if youre anything like me, youll end up getting carried away and spending way more than you mean to!
