Home Renovation

Home Renovation Incentive Scheme 2014 – avail of 13.5% Tax credits on repairs, renovations or home improvements.  To avail of this HRI scheme the minimum spend is €5,000 and max covered is €30,000. 

The cost of furniture, interior decorations and flooring are not covered. (I’m very surprised flooring is not covered, no pun intended J )This incentive is to encourage home owners to get renovations carried out and increase the demand for small construction jobs.

Feng Shui Tips -
  • Sound proofing via insulation – anything that can be done to buffer constant sounds will help a person be calm and relaxed in their home.
  • Be careful on the use of Reds and purples in your d├ęcor as they will act as the fire remedy and only certain spaces can take these colours.

What you do for a living can be enhanced by using the location energies within your home to your advantage.

Red Front Doors

Red front doors…. why so many? As I travel around Ireland I notice the huge upsurge of red front doors and now I believe it’s the latest trend in Dublin to go for either red or purple!  

New age Feng Shui recommends that painting you door Red / Purple or Pink can bring you supportive energies in your career and that these colours represent recognition.  This is NOT true and in some cases these fire colours can trigger misfortune to the occupants of the house!

Reds / Purples are known in Authentic Feng Shui as the fire element.  If the location energy at the front door is any way negative then the use of these colours can enhance this negativity: 

By adding these fire colours in 2013 to either of the following quadrants in your home:

  • Southwest - can trigger sickness. 
  • West - can trigger problems related to the mouth, teeth or breasts.
