Feng Shui Ideas for Your Fort Worth Apartment

The start of a new year is the perfect time to refresh your living space and welcome positive energy into your Fort Worth apartment. Rather than just adding furniture and decor that looks great, using feng shui principles when decorating can help promote harmony and balance in your life. 


As we leap into a time of new beginnings, you may be ready to jazz up your living space. Here are some tips for bringing good feng shui into your apartment in 2024.

Clear Clutter and Organize

When you live in a 1-2 bedroom apartment, clutter can create chaotic energy and block positive chi from flowing freely in your home. 


As you recover from the holiday and New Year’s festivities. take some time to clear away clutter and get organized. Go through closets, shelves, and storage areas, and donate or get rid of anything you don't use regularly. 


If you can’t make a quick decision go with the KonMarie Method and say goodbye to anything that doesn’t “spark joy.”


Arranging possessions neatly and keeping surfaces free of clutter allows energy to move smoothly.

Add Lighting

Proper lighting is essential for good feng shui. Make sure each room has adequate overhead and task lighting, but position it properly, for reasons we’ll get into in a minute. 


Add accent lighting like floor lamps or table lamps to brighten up dark corners and create coziness. Installing dimmer switches gives you control over the amount of light. Open blinds and curtains during the day to allow natural sunlight to stream in. 


After all, if you have shadows lingering where you enjoy family time, prepare food, or experience constant glare on your computer or TV screens due to misplaced lighting, the calmness within your living space will quickly deteriorate.

Use Fresh Flowers and Plants

Flowers and plants bring vibrant living energy into a home. Keep freshly cut flowers on display in entryways, dining areas, and bedrooms. Add potted plants in living spaces and on balconies. Opt for leafy green plants or bamboo, which represent growth. 


The beauty of fresh flowers and plants symbolizes good luck, so it’s important to regularly water plants and replace flowers to maintain positive energy.

Adjust Furniture Placement

Strategic furniture placement improves energy flow in a space. Avoid blocking doors or walkways with large pieces. Angle bed heads toward a wall rather than situating beds directly beneath a window. Place desks so you can see the entrance to a room while seated. Keep the center of a space open to allow chi to circulate freely.


Not only does a quick furniture adjustment add to the flow of your living area, but it also saves space in your apartment, something you want to take advantage of at every possible turn. 

Enhance Kitchen and Dining Areas

The kitchen represents nourishment in feng shui design. Keep this area clean and clutter-free. Decorate with fruits, vegetables, and warm lighting to create positive energy around food prep. 


Place the dining table in a commanding position where diners have a good view of your open dining room. 

Display Meaningful Art and Photos

Filling your home with artwork, photos, and decor that hold meaning for you personally energizes spaces with positive chi. Choose images that evoke happy memories and good feelings. Frame inspirational quotes, travel photos, or family portraits and display them prominently. 


Keep the images fresh by rotating seasonally.

Add Mirrors for Balance

Strategically hang mirrors to symbolically double positive energy flows. Use mirrors to reflect views of windows, entrances, or focal points like artwork. Avoid positioning mirrors so they create distracting reflections. Also, don't hang mirrors on the wall opposite your bed, as if you’re following feng shui decor standards; this positioning is known to disrupt sleep. 

Keep Your Entryway Clear

The entryway sets the tone for the energy flowing through your entire apartment, so keep it clear of clutter and let it open your apartment to expose the lush amenities we’ve sprinkled throughout our floorplans. 


Limit storage furniture in this space and place practical items like shoes or keys in this space to allow chi to move freely. Add a lamp, plant, art, or decor piece to welcome you home.
