The meaning of natural stones  in Feng Shui

For years, homeowners and interior designers have used Feng Shui to make their living spaces more harmonious and balanced. If you are unfamiliar with Feng Shui, it is a Chinese system designed to maximize the positive energy within a home by balancing the 5 elements — earth, water, fire, wood, and metal.

It is important to point out that Natural Stones are associated with the element of Earth, which represents trust, strength, durability, and stability. "Earth" works as the base for all of the other elements, so stones such as granite and marble will act as a foundation within your home.

At Marble Unlimited we are committed to helping our clients create their ideal living space, especially during these "stay-at-home times" so if you are interested in Feng Shui or in balancing the energy within your home, here is how you can use natural stones to do it. 


In the kitchen… 

Kitchens are often associated with the element of Earth as they both represent sustenance, nourishment, prosperity, and wealth. Granite countertops amplify the energy of a kitchen with unique beauty and practicality.


In the bathroom…

In a house, the element of water is usually associated with the bathroom, which can be a bit overpowering and bring ungrounded energy into your home. To balance it out the use of granite or marble in vanity tops, shower walls or bathtubs is a great way to help bring serenity and harmony. 


As a fireplace… 

Fireplaces are thought of as something that burns up energy, so having a marble fireplace is a great way to bring balance as well as help materialize intentions within your household.  



The entrance of the home is the place where not only guests come in, but also energy. Natural stone floors are a great way to keep the vital energy flowing, helping us keep negative energies outside. Additionally, they are very easy to clean, maintain and they will give your home a luxurious look and feel.
