    Why the Feng Shui is Vital to Your Desk?
    The feng shui of your desk really does matter! This becomes especially important if you have to spend many hours at your desk. It is always a good idea to be sure the places you have to spend a lot of time in—from your bedroom to your office—have good feng shui energy.
    The better the energy in your office and at your desk, the better the quality of your own energy. Good feng shui is not just about things looking good. A room may be visually appealing and well-designed, but lack elements that are essential for good feng shui.

    Feng Shui of Desk Characteristics

    The very first step to start in applying good feng shui to your desk is to actually choose the best desk according to feng shui principles.
    Feng Shui Criteria for a Good Desk
    1.    The Material
    2.    The Shape
    3.    The Color

    Feng Shui Desk Materials

    Out of all possible materials—wood, glass, laminate and metal—a wood desk is definitely the best feng shui choice. Not only it brings natural energy into your space, it also has both nourishing, as well as a vibrant quality of energy.

    A glass desk lacks solidity because it allows the energy to move very fast. If this is your choice, you can work with specific feng shui cures such as tall plants, for example, to create a more grounding, solid energy.

    A metal desk brings the sharpness, preciseness, and clarity of the feng shui element it represents. It can be a good choice if you are drawn to it, especially if your birth element is either Water or Metal.

    Which shape of Desk is Good for Feng Shui?
    Most shapes are excellent feng shui, but it all depends on the goal you are trying to achieve with your work.
    The typical rectangular shape desk provides grounding energy with an element of growth and expansion, so it is an great shape for a desk. It is best to have a desk with an open front, as this encourages better energy flow.
    A flowing shape desk is also considered excellent feng shui as it promotes creativity and a constant, refreshing flow of energy. It goes without saying that you will position it so as to be sitting on the inside of the curve, not the outside. However, this might not be a good choice for a person who can easily get distracted.
    An L-shaped desk can be good feng shui when placed in the best feng shui position.

    The least preferable shape choices for a desk are round, oval or square ones. Square desks can create the energy of stagnation, and the round one is its opposite—it has constant movement. However, these desk shapes may be appropriate for different situations.

    A round shape desk or table is an excellent choice for a group meeting as it encourages a free flow of energy, as well as the equality of all people using the workspace. An oval shape desk is similar in function to the round one, but the distribution of energy is not equal. A square shape can be beneficial for a person who tends to get distracted easily and needs more focus and concentration.
    Which Color of the Desk  is Good for Feng Shui?
    Color is big in feng shui as it is the easiest, almost instant way to create a specific quality of energy. Here are the best colors for a good feng shui desk, but you should take care to choose what works for your energy and your line of work. (If you want to understand more about the color of power, dive into the world of the five feng shui elements as each color represents a specific feng shui element)
    •    Brown - A grounding color that creates a sense of comfort and nourishment for the body.
    •    Black - Introspective color, promotes concentration and open-mindedness.
    •    White - Facilitates clarity and discipline. Can be energy draining for some people.
    •    Gray - Similar to white, has more power to aid focus (both white and gray colors represent the same feng shui element).
    •    Green - Revitalizing, creative, nourishing.
    •    Red - Strongly activating, not a good choice for long term use.
    Of course, each color comes in different intensity, so a deep brown desk, for example, will be different in its energy than a light brown one.
    Many desks also combine several materials, as well as several colors. For example, you can have a wood desk with metal legs, or a desk that has several colors. Always look at the overall feng shui guidelines and then make the decision based on your needs.
