Desk Facing The Window

Desk Facing The Window – Is It Good or Bad Feng Shui Layout?

The position of your work desk plays a vital role in creating good Feng Shui. It also symbolises your career and business opportunities, so you must place it in an excellent strategic place, commonly known as the command position.

This rule applies everywhere regardless if you are in your work office, cubicle or even if you are working from home.

There are some locations to avoid if it is possible. One of them is sitting with your desk facing the window. Are you currently seated in such a position now?

Why Sitting With Desk Facing the Window is not Desirable?

It is good to have windows on your side instead of the front. It is tempting to place your work desk facing the window because you can enjoy the scenery outside if you have one. However, you might get easily distracted by any movement outside the windows and delay getting your work done on time.

It will even be worse if you face a sharp corner of a building, neighbouring air-con compressors or other structures that create poison arrows pointing directly at you.

In addition, if you are facing the windows, you will have eyestrain or discomfort caused by the glare of the natural light.

What if I Can Only Sit Facing the Window?

If you have no choice but to place your desk in such a position, pull down the curtains or blinds while you are working. This slight change will help you concentrate and focus better on your work.

However, if you like to have an empowering workspace, follow these tips:

1. Always have your back supported by a solid wall.

2. You should be able to see the entrance from where you sit.

3. Avoid locating your desk facing directly towards the entry door.

4. Do not sit facing the wall or windows.

5. Ensure that you are not sitting facing any sharp corners of pillars or other structures.

I hope these tips help you create a good Feng Shui working space and uplift your productivity and focus.
