The Feng Shui of Water Features

Posted on 03 March 2011



To be a true Coloradoan, you must love water. Recreating a natural water scene truly adds to a home.  In Feng Shui terms, water features allow for peaceful relaxation, provide balance and harmony, and enhance positive energy. Water features are a nice way to bring a natural element closer to your home.

Whether a water fall, koi pond, fountain or water sculpture, these unique creations allow for lovely aesthetic ambiance in the home, on the outdoor patio or as part of the garden.  Incredible texture is created in a relaxing oasis for entertaining and it can be a great way to enjoy nature.

Water fountains are among the most popular of water features found in gardens. They can be made from stone, wood, bamboo, slate and copper. Most often, outdoor fountains and water features are created to balance ones relationship and appreciation for nature and are placed on the south or east side of the house. Although placement of a water feature depends on the desired affect, never place two water features on either side of the entrance, as it is thought to be bad luck according to Feng Shui beliefs. Instead, consider the size, the space available and sound produced.  Bedrooms are a bad idea for water features as they can produce worry in this setting. Also, they are not seen as often as in a living area, den, bathroom or outdoors.

Outdoor waterfalls coexist in harmony with the landscape adding only a few rocks, boulders, plants and foliage for color and texture. Some irrigation companies also install water features within a rock garden setting.  Indoor water walls are used to create an exciting focal point in a space.  When well lit , they create amazing ambiance. Indoor water walls can be assembled by yourself. Many are made from cooper screen, stainless steel, glass or corian.  Water walls create a welcoming feature to a home and alongside a fireplace create a unique combination of soothing elements.

Approaching placement of water features with a Feng Shui focus can simplify as well as balance a final look of a space.  It will give you guidance of where to start and perhaps even bestow good fortune.
