In many traditional Feng Shui books you will read that bathrooms are negative places that should be closed off and ignored. Part of the reason is that bathrooms used to be rather funky places- like out-houses, not anything like the beautiful spa-like bathrooms we enjoy in the west. My belief is that we should feel wonderful about every room in our home and make them inspiring places to be. Negative feelings about any part of it doesn’t serve anyone.
One of the reasons bathrooms have gotten such a bad rap is because chi (energy) is akin to water which flows down and out pipes and drains. The goal of Feng Shui is to invite into our front door vibrant chi and encourage it to circulate evenly around the home. Drains and openings are areas where the chi can escape — and bathrooms have lots of them.
