If you have negative energy in your space, it can bring you bad health and arguments. You can also lose opportunities in your love life, or your career,” shares Master Hanz. When it comes to Feng Shui, small condos are not hopeless. There are ways to combat the bad luck! If you reside in a small space here are 8 bonafide tips to improve the energy in your small condo.
1 Clutter Be Gone
Making your small condo into a warehouse of stuff is not going to help your small condo be lucky at all. Feng Shui dictates that you only keep what is essential because keeping more items that you don’t really need is like storing more bad energy. Decluttering can help your mind relax and release the tensions of the past. Bets to keep your small space minimal because the more clutter, the more “visual clutter” for your brain to absorb.
2 Clean Weekly
Aside from decluttering, you have to remember to clean up your home. Clean up your small condo from the light bulbs, the sink, and even under the bed. Bad energy can be hiding anywhere in your unit so best to rid your unit of it by cleaning every nook and cranny.

Mirrors are a well-known design trick to create the illusion of a larger space. For Feng Shui, it is also a way to improve the energy in your small condo.
