Can I Have Good Feng Shui in My Bathroom?

Feng shui tips for good energy design in your bathroom

Can you have good feng shui in your bathroom? Well, not only you can have good feng shui in your bathroom, you must have good feng shui there!

While it is true that bathrooms present many feng shui challenges, to conclude that it is best to ignore the bathroom is a huge mistake.




To deal with your bathroom by pretending  your bathroom is not there is not a solution and honestly, very bad feng shui.

Also not a good solution is to follow superficial feng shui tips like  putting a mirror on the door (does not really work) or keeping your toilet seat down (very important to follow but not enough!)

You need not be afraid of your bathroom, love and care for it by creating excellent energy, and it will certainly love you back by not spreading doubtful feng shui energy throughout your house.

Let’s look at some very basic and easy tips for good feng shui in your bathroom.

First, of course, you need to keep it clean and orderly.

Not only clean, but sparkling clean. Because the energy in the bathroom is a bit challenging, feng shui-wise, any lack of order or cleanliness will quickly double, if not triple the negative quality of energy there, so be mindful and keep it sparkling. 

The less items you have in your bathroom, the easier it is to keep it orderly and clean; a zen lifestyle is earth-friendly and very easy to feng shui!

If you do have a busy bathroom, then make it a priority to find good organizational solutions and use every inch of vertical and horizontal space in your shelves or cupboards to have it all organized.

Places like Bed Bath and Beyond, Home Depot and many other can help you with plenty of creative storage solutions.

Next, it is good to know the feng shui bagua area where your bathroom is located.

If you are new to feng shui, bagua is a feng shui energy map that helps you identify different feng shui areas in your home. It also gives you basic guidelines as to the most appropriate colours and shapes to use in specific areas.

However, no matter which bagua area your bathroom is located in, colour white and light skin colours are excellent for the bathroom, just because they are so fresh and body friendly!

White is also a metal element colour – the energy that cuts through unnecessary slowness, delays, confusion, etc, and warm skin colours are very friendly and welcoming for your body.

So, even if you do not  know the bagua area of your bathroom, if you stay with these two colours you will be on the safe side.

What to avoid in your bathroom?




Avoid water feng shui element colours (blue and black) and strong water images, as these will only strengthen the energy you want to keep under control – the strong water element presence in your bathroom.

Last but not least, bring an element of beauty and nourishment to your bathroom.

This can be anything from beautiful seashells to a soothing image; from a set of natural candles to an aromatherapy diffuser.

I have an electric aromatherapy diffuser in my bathroom and find it so very convenient! We often have it on in the evening spreading the healing scents of essential oils.

The best thing about an electric aromatherapy diffuser is that you do not need to worry about it as it shuts down automatically (as compared to a candle diffuser that you need to keep an eye on).

A good quality ultrasonic aromatherapy diffuser will also spread the aroma to quite a big space (up to 1,000 sq ft).

In a nutshell, be sure to always pay attention to the quality of feng shui energy in your bathroom. It is not hard at all, and you will much benefit from it.

If you put a bit of effort to create a feeling of spa in your bathroom, you can relax and just laugh at the bad feng shui bathroom reputation.
