The Basics of Asian Decor

If you love the look of Asian, you may wonder how you can bring the look into your home. Many homes are becoming decorated with Asian decor because it brings positive energy and balance into your room. Asian design works well within your space without requiring more.

Feng Shui

Feng Shui is another word for Asian home design. With Feng Shui, the room is decorated based on the position of the object in the space. The decor brings together home and wealth. Any room can be decorated with Feng Shui including the bathroom however, the most common room to decorate is the kitchen. That is because the kitchen is thought to be the soul of the house and the Feng Shui design focuses on that. A laughing Buddha somewhere in the house is a common element in the Feng Shui decor because it is said to add lively power to the home.

If someone is giving an Asian decor gift, you can expect a Chinese dragon because this is said to generate a positive energy for the home and it assists in keeping bad spirits away. Money frogs are also a popular Asian decor because it is said to increase the treasures as well as the success in the home. If you are given a jade frog, this symbolizes good fortune as a reward for hard work. If you receive a crystal globe, this will ensure a healthy frame of mind as well as a healthy body. It stimulates the positive energy in the home when sunshine falls on it. Jade horses are also used for energy as well.

You want to use lamps, tables, stools, and chairs to create the design. Each Asian piece looks unique and has a purpose. Your furniture pieces need to be Asian style, which can be purchased at a local furniture store or you can order them online. There are several ways that you can find the right furniture for your home. Look online, ask friends or family, or you can visit thrift shops, flea markets, or yard sales. Although they cannot find a use for the furniture, it may be all you need for your room.

The floor should be kept clean but area rugs are permitted in this decor. You need to choose natural flokati rugs or you can go with modern rugs that are available for homeowners. The floor rugs should provide warmth and comfort. If a rug is torn or unclean it can confuse the look of Asian decor so make sure that you keep them clean at all times. Because of this you may want to go with a beige or brown color rug.

Accessorize with minimal accessories. Using too many accessories can ruin the overall appeal of the room. You can add candles, picture frames, tablecloth covers and more. If you cover the table, make sure that you only cover the tops of the table. Don’t allow the tablecloth to go all the way to the floor otherwise the look will seem cluttered and unclean.
