Sharp corners are considered physically dangerous in Feng Shui because of the potential of getting hurt if you or someone else where to hit them. I know of people who have broken toes or split foreheads on these corners. 

But that’s not the only problem with these types of corners. The CHI or Life Force that circulates along the walls meets at the corner and creates turbulence.

Turbulent chi created by shars is said to negatively affect the overall energy of the home. Most clients experience an increased sense of relaxation when they cover up sharp corners.

We know how chi travels because ancient Feng Shui masters study the movement of chi by making it visible with the use of incense.

The traditional cure for poison arrows is to place a tall plant in front of the sharp corner. The plant should have uplifted stems (not drooping) and soft rounded leaves. When it is impractical to add a plant because of lack of light lack of space, then there are other solutions: 

  • Ornamental corner covers, made of wood.
  • Corner-round moulding that is designed to wrap around the sharp corner.
  • Three (3) quarter-round pieces placed together.
  • A string of beads hanging from the ceiling in front of the corner.
  • Colorful decals.
  • Symbolic cures.

  1. I like the Decorative Wall Decal at the cafe press and I have made purchase on the Beige Decorative 36×11 Wall Decal. Order number: 360581902
    I notice you have the following color: Beige, Brown, purple and green Decorative 36×11 Wall Decal. However, you do not have any blue one to match a blue color room which has corner wall.

  2. Where do you get the decorative corner moulding please? I love it but can’t seem to find it anywhere
