We all know that our children’s study table is important for their development. In it, they will study for many hours, do their daily tasks and even read or draw, which is part of their daily free time. For this reason, you need to find a good angle for it. If we are also lovers of Feng Shui, we have some clear pointers that can be useful for us.
Feng Shui in a Children’s Environment
Feng Shui is not a religion, no, it is not a decorative trend either. We can say that Feng Shui is a lifestyle, a philosophy that is applied in many aspects of our lives, including in our home and indeed in the environment of children.
Feng Shui is based on using five basic elements of nature to create harmony in the home. It is about balancing the positive and negative energies by placing the interior objects in a concrete way. A way to let the energies flow, also for the little ones.
Place the study table according to Feng Shui
Feng Shui is much more flexible in decoration than we think. However, the study table in itself is not as decorative as it is functional. When installing, not only the optimization of the space of a children’s room prevails, but also other aspects. According to Feng Shui, the study table in a nursery should move away from the space we would use in an office. In this case, it is recommended not to facilitate the visibility of the entrance door. The reason is very simple; having a door can make us think that we could be surprised at any moment, something that does not facilitate the study. A wall in front of it will not distract us at all, nor will our children.
Study table comfort
Feng Shui also refers to the comfort of the study elements. An important aspect is therefore that the table and chair used are reasonably comfortable. The table should be sufficiently large, quite large. We may think that our child is too small for such a big table, but the truth is that the sooner they get into the habit of studying, the better. If we buy a bigger table, it will also serve as our kids grow up. Yes, as they get older, the study hours get longer, so comfort is definitely essential.
The material of the study table according to Feng Shui
Feng Shui is also clear about the material. The materials we use for Feng Shui must be materials that can be reabsorbed into the earth without ecological damage. In this way we can immediately forget about plastics and oil derivatives in general. Wood, stone or organic stains are always welcome.
In the seats, the most natural textiles will be best. For example, we could bet on wood at the table.
Wood has a warm spring energy. This energy works just like in a tree, an energy that rises and then hugs us in a warm embrace. So a little wood in our son’s bedroom, also in the study table, will be needed.
According to Feng Shui, wood is ideal when we start new projects. What other more important new projects can exist than that of someone starting his study days?
When it comes to children’s furniture, fortunately there are plenty of homes that have wood in their products.
Although wood is our favorite material par excellence, according to Feng Shui, metal should not be excluded either. This material represents the autumn energy. Metal concentrates energy, makes us look to the future and helps us focus our attention on something. Considering it’s a study place, I don’t think it’s a bad idea.
For Feng Shui, it is good to use metal if we want to increase concentration, discipline and leadership. So if we need to encourage these values in our kids, there’s no doubt that it’s one of the best options.
