Achieving a Feng Shui Environment in Your Restaurant

For many people, achieving a Feng Shui environment in their home and/or office is important or desirable. If you own or manage a restaurant, there’s a good chance that this approach to filling a space could work wonders for your business. Creating a Feng Shui environment can sometimes be very difficult, but here are a few tips to help you do so.

Select Your Colour

Colour can play a very important part in achieving a Feng Shui environment in your restaurant. Certain colours can be good, while others are not conducive to a proper and correct atmosphere. The best colours for your restaurant will depend on a number of factors, so it could be a good idea to look further into this or even consult a Feng Shui expert.

Introduce Plants

Plants play a vital role in achieving a Feng Shui environment in your restaurant. Not only do they add a touch of greenery to the restaurant, but they also increase oxygen supply in the air. Cleverly chosen plants will also increase the aesthetic appeal of your restaurant while giving it a comforting and balanced feel.

Clear Away Clutter

Clutter is not conducive to creating a Feng Shui environment. It can break up the energy flow, which is what gives the restaurant its unique environment. Clear away clutter and ensure that there is a clear pathway for the energy. There must also not be large windows at the back of the property; this will make it difficult to retain positive energy.

Open up the Entrance

It is very difficult to achieve a Feng Shui environment in a restaurant if the entrance is overloaded with ornaments, signage or other obstructions to energy flow. In order to allow the chi to flow through the restaurant, ensure that the entrance is clear, open and welcoming with eye-catching but unobtrusive restaurant signage. This will not only make your customers more inclined to visit, but it also ensures that the energy will flow straight through into your restaurant.

Achieve Balance

Achieving balance is the most important factor in creating a Feng Shui environment in your restaurant. Some ways in which to do this include choosing subtle yet effective decorations, laying out your tables in a spacious manner, and displaying artworks that create great focal points without detracting from the décor as a whole. If you’re a little lost on how to create this kind of balance in your restaurant, it could be worthwhile contacting a professional shop fitter, such as TU Projects, to help you out.

Feng Shui can have a strong influence on the success or failure of a restaurant, and it is an important factor to take into consideration when undertaking development or refurbishment.
