Feng shui applied to children's spaces can bring a vibrant, healthy and lasting sense of joy, at the same time providing relief from the overwhelming clutter chaos often present in children's rooms.

Young energy is expansive and vibrant; it needs an abundance of free, open space in order to thrive. Feng shui can help promote a harmonious growth while avoiding cluttered, busy and chaotic energy that can easily take over children's rooms.

Feng shui can also help create a space where your child feels genuinely happy, empowered and loved. This is where your willingness to allow your child to own the room and express her creativity, at the same time establishing clear guidelines for structure and order can promote wonderful, happy times.

Be flexible with your need to have the room match the overall decor scheme of your whole house, find win-win solutions to have the images or colors your child absolutely loves, and don't forget to implement basic feng shui guidelines for a healthy room.
