Feng Shui Your Bathroom & Create A Spa At Home!

spa_bathroom

Bathrooms get a very bad rap in feng shui. They are considered fairly unequivocally bad. They need not be “bad” at all- in fact, your bathroom can be the most empowered space in your home.  Here are some big tips to turn your bathroom- any bathroom! – into a fabulous spa-vibey space of rejuvenation.

You can transform your bathroom to a super-prosperous room that’s a haven.

Hi Dana,

Thanks for another dose of inspiration. My bathroom has no windows and therefore no light or circulation (the shower gets pretty mouldy!). It is also bang in the center of the flat off a corridor with limited light. I would love to improve things there but we rent and its small and not much can be done or grown in it.

Only good thing is a wall-width mirror opposite the shower that protects my bedroom on other side. I have put some shells and candles in the bathroom. Much as I dislike them, would it help to use artificial plants, to create the illusion of green nature? Or any other suggestions?

Thanks Dana!

Yes you can add faux plants, but I bet that bamboo stalks would be just fine in water…and they are “alive” 🙂
You can add art of some sort to create a “faux” window…
And make sure to keep the mold under control. Showering in mold is…well… it would be heather to not shower 😉 Tjis might help a bit: http://www.care2.com/greenliving/three-ways-to-kill-mold-naturally.html

Thank you for the question & awesome compliment!!! xxx

Thanks for the tips and good to know bamboo will survive less light. I know- need to get the rubber gloves on and scrub with vinegar! Have a great day x

I love all your great tips, thank you! I have such a dilema with my master bedroom and bath. Picture this, enter the bedroom , wall to the right is long and is where my dresser sits (with a mirror), wall to the left (where the door is) has built in shelving where the TV (I know! that’s bad) and many books and decorator items sit, there is a fireplace in the corner, wall to the left/left is a double glass door. Straight ahead from the entry door is a mirrored sliding door that opens to the closet which flows through to open into the bathroom, the bed sits against that wall, to the left of the bed is another real door that leads to the bathroom. The sinks are on the wall behind the bed (I know! another bad). My dilema is the bed against the bathroom wall – there is no other place for it. We tried it on the wall to the right but it then blocked the path from door to door, and it felt really weird. Next up, what to do those sliding mirrored doors that go into the closet? Too many mirrors in the bedroom?? The bathroom is well lit and has a nice glass block window and walk in glass block shower. There is another door that leads to a room with a sauna and another door leading outside to the pool area. My husband uses our garden tub to start all his seedlings for the garden. It’s the perfect spot and is life in the bathroom, right? We are not big bath takers and have a Jacuzzi outside we enjoy. What to do??

You are welcome! Lots of questions here and I am not sure I can visualize it all well enough to address it all. Cover up some of the excess mirrors and put- at the very least- a big tapestry or some other physical barrier behind your bed in addition to a solid headboard.

Pleasant surprise – my new place has all but the earth elements!! Now to implement rocks and plants to balance it out. Loving to garden this will not be an issue 😉

Just moved and now have a brand new bathroom which was just renovated with granite and tile and new tub/shower. Even wood floors! My new spa like bathroom really has done wonders for my energy level. Now I know it is not just because it is new and pretty =)

I strive to clean responsibly and would love to have a list of some recommended bathroom cleaners. I currently use Mrs Meyers products but have not found a toilet cleaner. Any suggestions from your experts would be lovely.

New to your blog. Love your no nonsense approach to Feng Shui. Very approachable. Thanks!

Been slowly phasing out chemicals ~ all over the house ~ over many years; in the bathroom, only shea nut oil, homemade plantain oil, homemade skin toners, argan oil, and the like… oh and found this great shampoo called Fundamental that I love, too. If it’s ok with you, I would love to link to this post in a Color Me Happy newsletter! (Will also link again to your book ~ prob in Sept 1 issue.) Ok?

I have been considering getting an aloe vera plant. Would the bathroom be a good place for one?

Yep, just make sure you have room for it and that the kind of spiky leaves are not interfering with motion around your bathroom. It could be great as a hanging plant….!

Hi Dana, I really think that my bathroom and life would benefit by using the mirror tip and placing one behind the door, but there’s a small window on it, at about 1 m 59 cm, which might mean that I wont be able to see the top of my head on it! (and definitely not anyone over that height, which is most people! I’m short). And I remember you saying mirrors that cut off the top of your head are a no-no. What do you suggest I do? My bathroom is in the NE, Fame and Reputation area of the map, so far I’ve added stones and rocks, and I can’t afford to turn it into a spa at the moment by bying anything really. Thank you so much for this blog!

I would not do a mirror that cuts off your head. lots of other things to do bedsides a mirror… and keeping your counters and your windows washed are two ways to amplify a similar energy that mirrors bring into a space 🙂 xoxo

Thank you for the reply! I switched some of the things I had in the bathroom with organic and recyclable materials, added some crystals and stones, and a couple of plants. It already looks a million times better and feels great! I wish I lived nearby so you could see the rest of my house, any advice of yours that I’ve followed feels great immediately! 🙂

What advice would you give someone who has a master bathroom in the marriage and love sector of the home? Would you recommend the same advice provided above?! Thanks!!!!

So… A mirror on the back of my bathroom door would reflect the toilet when the door is closed. I’m guessing I should skip that part? Or is it still a good idea?
