Design of Restaurant Bathroom Incorporates The Feng Shui Principles

Home Stager with Feng Shui Manhattan Long Island #888

The principles of Feng Shui are all around us. How would you know? Take the initiative to explore feng shui though discussion, research, attending workshops and more importantly, experiencing it first hand. By allowing yourself to be open and receptive, you will become more familiar and comfortable with understanding why certain building materials, objects, furnishings, subject mater within photographs and artwork have been selected.

Below is an a quick a break down of a Restaurant Bathroom that Incorporated Feng Shui into its design. 


Situation With Bathrooms In Feng Shui:

Bathrooms in Feng Shui are considered "drain" no matter their placement on the blue-print and floor plan. Why? The nature of a bathroom is to "get-rid of," "exit out" and literally drain away water. With that understanding, from a feng shui perspective this is why bathrooms have derived this characteristic. Is it bad? From my humble opinion, No. Feng Shui is not presented on a fear based perspective. It's simply an observation and there are simple cures that could be put into place to counter that action of the bathroom. 




  • Color: Bathroom wall colors are though accents are suggested to be beige, creams, or earth tones to keep things simple. Some may also offer earthy yellows or even greens. 


  • Artwork: The single piece of artwork along the wall has three stones stacked on top of each other. The stones relate to earth energy. In Feng Shui, earth helps to absorb excess water. 



  • Building Materials: The Ceramic tiles and counter top are also related to earth energy. Looking all around the space you'll also see there is a lot of wood element (floors and even bathroom door designs). You'll also notice a lot of metallic textures. According to the Ba-gua map, there bathroom is located in the Wealth Life Section. So by using material that could help enhance the energy of wealth (a touch of wood and metal) that offers an increase and support of wealth related energy. 


Design of bathroom doors 

Shapes: Even the carved wood along the bathroom doors could relate to "money coins." 


Essentially, you take a bathroom that is considered "drain" and transform it's meaning into "nurturing" (like a mini spa).  No need to complicate or create fear based perceptions.

Thanks Laura!  I've had trouble understanding how to work with my bathroom.  It's in my prosperity corner and the only cure I could come up with is windchimes with red strings.  This is very helpful.

I've never really thought about the Feng Shui principles in the bathroom before but much like a professional spa retreat, the way you describe Feng Shui principles in use for the bathroom give you a calm and comfortable feel.
