Fengshui about Sofa

 

Introduction

A common question that is frequently asked is that "Must the sofa be agaisnt the wall?". A quick and short answer to that question is not necessarily. It highly depends on the amount of space you have and your living conditions. But don't worry, we will give a simple guide on what you should consider when you are trying to find the best place to arrange your sofa while getting good feng shui.

Landed Properties

Many would assume you would have to place the sofa against the wall but when it comes to landed properties with bigh amounts of space, it is not necessary. Why is that? Well first of all, the sofa already provides enough support as we are sitting agaisnt the sofa. Besides that, it is just not logical to place all your sofa's agaisnt the wall in a room full of space because if you are trying to interact with other people while sitting on your sofa's you will have to speak way louder than you have to just to have a normal conversation. Unless you are planning to use a microphone while talking with others, it is not necessary to have the sofa against the wall in a room full of space.

Condos or Apartments

For condos and apartments it is a little different compared to landed properties. As most condos and aparments don't have a lot of space in their rooms, it is more practical to have all your sofas against the wall to maximise the space you have in the room. It will be very cluttered if you have the sofa's close to each other and will make walking around a very annoying and troublesome task. Since the room is usually small, people can still interact comfortably despite the fact that the sofa's are against the wall unlike for exmaple a "Landed Property".
