Feng Shui Tips before buying a Dining Table.
Day #203 of #365 Days of Feng Shui
I didn’t give enough credit to our old dining table until we broke it on our recent move.
So we used an old fold-out table for a few weeks.
It was an odd shape. Way too thin and weirdly long. And because it was old, the ends that folded-out had a slight angle, so if you didn’t hold onto your plate whilst you ate you’d end up with food on your lap.
It made our meal time with the kids, even more stressful, unstable and not really supportive.
When I finally found a secondhand table that actually fit well in the space and with us. And it was sturdy and solid. It made mealtimes much better and we actually sat at the table even when we weren’t eating.
So if you are looking at buying a new dining table here are a few things you may wish to consider.
According to Feng Shui, round or oval tables are recommended for dining.
As dining tables are not only used for meals, but to also bring a family or a group together.
When it’s round, it allows the energy to support everyone and represent equality within the group dynamic.
Everyone is evenly supported and is provided with harmonious energy in order to be seen and heard.
Everyone is equal.
Just look at the United Nations seating… yep round.
If you opt for a square or rectangle, it’s best to buy one that isn’t too long, so that you can talk to the person at the other end. Otherwise it can cause a lack of connection or poor communication.
Also ensure the corners are rounded nicely, as sharp corners on tables is Sha Qi, meaning it’s gunna hurt if you knock into them. Ouch.
I love our little family round table is just feels right.
