I am in total agreement on the bedroom.

it always confounds me when i see these HUGE master bedrooms for sale in homes. What is someone supposed to do in there? All I ever do is sleep, be intimate, and read. All I need is a bed, a lamp and a night stand.

In my eyes, a bedroom should really be large enough for a BED and maybe one cozy chair and a vanity.

In my perfect house, the bedroom would be just large enough for that alone. Then I'd have a large "playroom" for myself elsewhere in the house. I'd have workout items, the TV/DVD, a yoga area, my library, a work station and a craft area.

Well, for one thing, couples who have children would have a roomy place to just be. Their children would be in the rest of the house, doing whatever it is that they do.

What I don't understand, is just how big should a bathroom be?! I've cleaned houses where the bathroom in the master was as big or bigger than my bedroom! In one, there was a tub, a separate shower, toilet, a bench, a couch. I don't know about spending all that time in a bathroom! i guess if I were rich, I'd have one at least with a steam room and a hot tub.

Ah, well that makes sense. We have no kids nor any desire for one, so I didn't see that angle.

On the other hand I would LOVE a huge bathroom! I'd spend all my time in it! I'd have it full of plants, have a soaking tub, walk in shower, a seating bench and a steam room. HEAVEN.

Yea and if you had a steam room, you'd need a place to lie down and rest after using it! A nice day bed or something comfy. You could have your towel warmer in there too.

And while we're at it, it would be nice for the commode to be in an alcove for privacy!

Yes the bathroom would be a sanctuary from the dirty, cold, unpleasant world. Like being back in a warm wet womb. Then i can trundle off to my tiny, dark, monk-like bedroom cell, close the thick wood doors, pull the thick window tapestries...and sleep.

Yes to me a bathroom can be like a spa. It can be the peaceful cleansing retreat from the world. So I definitely see the appeal of a roomy, uplifting bathroom. I don't have one though smile

I did paint the walls of both bathrooms a sea green color, to aim for a spa like feel though smile

Has anyone here studied Feng shui or really used it/ worked with it?
some years ago I tried to approach Feng shui. There's different
versions. here in the west best known, Compass school.
And there is Black Hat school<--they use a tool like a
Octagon shaped 'Bagua and it divides a space into 8 sectors
and relates to 'areas of Life (wealth, fame, relationship)
This was all too complex for myself. I'm not always able
to grasp. Even the less complicated ( I have used) a regluar
Compass N S E W each room/ areas of life So I didn't do F S
for a while but I did experement what worked for me
and with my feelings & impressions. I'm wanting to start again.
I changed my window works in my bed room a few days ago?
and I've been 'Down' no energy & off balance ever since.
I'm sure I blocked 'something' maybe too much metal though
metal is surpose to be good for west- windows. Interesting
RE: bathroom. your bathroom & plumbing system is to correspond
to our elimination system. Because personal cleansing rituals
( where the wastes flow away) But we must be careful because
Chi can be flushed OUT of our home via/toilet & drains
and so prosoerity will go - And so faucets that drip,
running toilet causes (slow leak RE: money) ha this is why
Close the Lids, shower curtins ect. Like my bathroom is
close to my bedroom so I keep the door closed. wet energy
drains. The Yin from water will dominate & can 'imbalance'
& dampen Physical energy. I use white paint in my bathrooms.
I don't like firey colors in bathrooms but they say Red, orange,
golden put balance and alot of energy and people use these
colors. Instead I like straight lines and angles ( accessories
no curving shapes except the toilet:) White paint seems to
help delicate health. The bathroom is connected to our health.
That's a easy one to think about:) The germs collect, so
we keep the bathroom clean. Our energy/vitality can be sapped
if Chi goes down the drain too quickly. so because of the imbalnce
& dampening and the physical energy? Bright light helps the Yang:)
That must be the reason I like my husband's Bathroom?
He has bright light & easy for him to shave & function,
I like to use for make-up sometimes & personal. But I keep
a dim light in my bathroom & shower. I can not stand to have the
light on while I'm showering. Guess I don't want to think
about cleaning <teasing> well I plan to study more.
Maybe I need to and that's why I've felt my apartment
stagnent lately. I guess I need new breath wink a good supply.
I feel some kind of disharmony and always extreamly warm up
in my place. But seems more these last few months. well I
will follow up these months. Feng shui works best in
well maintained and clean place. so I will do some more study
very soon. animals have signifieance too (YANG) OK what
is my bird? he must be extreme happiness I'm sure.
If anyone has studied or has any ideas please share.
