Office Feng Shui
Office feng shui is not a complicated or difficult category. In this regard, we are faced with the application of principles in the design and layout of the office space. The arrangement and special design may not create extraordinary power in employees, but the positive effects it will have on their psyche and energy will strengthen organizational agility and make employees more happy and productive. The only thing we need to observe for this purpose is smart thinking and changing the office decor to create positive feelings in the environment.
Effectiveness of Office Feng Shui
The first principle that feng shui is based on is the flow of energy. For this purpose, the layout of the office should be in such a way that we face smooth movement without energy restrictions in the office space. To achieve this goal, creating an organized environment with an open plan and furniture with soft edges will help. The Feng Shui process is focused on the category of balance. We do not face any special rules in the field of feng shui and the only thing that is important to us is maintaining the balance of the environment. For example, our office environment may be bright, in this case, due to the benefit of natural light, we design the decoration of the environment with a dark theme.
In arranging office environments based on Feng Shui, we deal with 4 factors:
1. 8 main directions
2. 5 natural elements (earth, wind, fire, water, ether)
4. Natural binaries (binary number machine)
Compliance with these factors is effective in creating an environment where energy is flowing and turning the environment into a dynamic space.
The Importance of Feng Shui in Office Layout
Companies whose layout and decor are based on Feng Shui principles are generally more organized and clean. Such offices provide a happier and calmer environment for employees. As mentioned, due to the focus that feng shui has on maintaining balance, upon entering such environments that conform to the principles of feng shui, one feels more balanced.
One of the biggest benefits of feng shui in office layout is identifying and eliminating stressful points. This case is also derived from the same property of balancing. For this purpose, we can arrange the table, chairs and sofas in a different way or think about adding plants. This work injects a new spirit and energy into the environment. As a result, Feng Shui pays attention to two main factors in the workplace; The first is the comfort of the employees and the second is the optimal use of the interior space.
