Add a section on Interior Design
When it comes to interior design for classrooms, incorporating items such as plants, fountains and artworks can be incredibly beneficial for learning—not only from a psychological standpoint, but also from an aesthetic one. From a psychological perspective, these additional elements can help to foster a sense of calmness and relaxation in the environment, which are both vital elements of stress reduction and enhanced learner engagement. Plants also add an abundance of oxygen when placed around desks or on windowsills, creating an energized and uplifting atmosphere. Fountains create a peaceful backdrop of sounds which can be pleasant and calming. Artworks are known to stimulate creativity which can further contribute to foster innovation amongst learners. All these components together will create an ideal classroom where tension levels are reduced due to the calming influence of the visual landscape created by its interior design. This will no doubt bring greater success in terms of educational outcomes.
Incorporate visual elements
When designing a classroom according to Feng Shui, certain visual elements should be considered. For example, incorporating natural light sources such as windows and/or skylights is important. Natural light brings in a sense of calmness and energy which helps students focus better during class. Additionally, plants can be used to create a sense of balance and peace in the classroom environment. Having bookshelves around the room with motivational texts can help to inspire the students while providing an alternative source of learning. Finally, adding wall decorations such as paintings or inspirational quotes allows for more creativity within the space. Including these visual elements when designing a Feng Shui inspired classroom will not only help improve the learning environment but also make it more aesthetically pleasing for everyone involved.

Feng Shui and Curriculum Planning
Creating a comfortable and balanced learning space is key to an effective classroom design. Before considering any changes, create a floor plan that outlines the space and any potential features or obstacles. Pay attention to the flow of energy sensing how you can utilize and direct natural sources of light, and add in furniture, colors, decorations, and art to influence the class atmosphere. Consider too the nine celestial animals mentioned in Flying Star Feng Shui for their distinct energies which should be used intentionally to benefit the day-to-day operation of your classroom.
When designing with both feng shui and the curriculum in mind there are several tips to consider. Establish an environment conducive for learning by creating areas that encourage focus during work periods; this should be well marked to separate sections for activities taking place simultaneously. Ensure all tools are easily accessible yet harmoniously stored away when not in use. Keep colors bright enough to stimulate learning but tranquil enough so students remain calm during lessons. Adhere closely to good feng shui principles such as aiming for balance between creativity, education, socialization and spirituality while also avoiding anarchy—particularly important due to its effect on student safety—and fostering receptive minds while maintaining order.
