Feng shui is an ancient Chinese practice used to create a space that invites positivity, which some believe improves your health and happiness. Everything from leaving the toilet seat up to arranging your furniture has an impact on your home’s feng shui. Hire a local feng shui consultant to help you tick all the boxes and maximize the flow of positive energy in your home.

According to HomeAdvisor, feng shui consultants cost an average of $800, but prices can range from $200 to upwards of $3,000, depending on the project.

Feng Shui Consultant Cost per Hour

Feng shui consultants charge different rates depending on where you live and how experienced the consultant is. On average, they charge between $100 and $400 per hour. Feng shui consultations almost always take two hours, minimum. 

Feng Shui Consultant Cost per Room

It may go without saying, but hiring a feng shui consultant to assess every inch of an expansive family home will be much more than hiring the same person to only incorporate feng shui into your living room

Some consultants charge a flat rate per room or house size. Average costs range from $200 to $500 per room. For a whole-house feng shui consultation, expect to pay between $500 to $1,500 or more.

Feng Shui Consultant Cost per Square Foot

Most feng shui consultants charge per hour or per room, but a few charge per square foot. Average feng shui consultant costs range from $0.50 to $2 per square foot.

Whether you’re moving into a new home or you want to invite good vibes into your current one, a feng shui consultant can help. Costs vary from consultant to consultant and depend on the size and location of your home as well as the consultant’s experience and how in-depth the consultation is.

Location

If you live in or near a populous metropolitan area, like Los Angeles or New York City, your local feng shui consultants will cost more than those in smaller towns with less demand for their services. 

Home Size

The bigger your home is, the more a feng shui consultant will cost. But you do have the option of hiring a feng shui consultant for one or two rooms instead of your whole house. That’s useful if you want to prioritize feng shui in your main living space and bedrooms, but not the seldom-used bathroom in the basement. A one-room consultation could cost as little as $200, while a whole-house consultation can cost up to $3,000.

Consultant Experience

Consultants who are just starting out will typically have a lower rate than those with high-profile clients and an impressive portfolio. 

Depth of Consultation

Feng shui can involve decluttering your current home, rearranging furniture, home staging before putting your home on the market, and more. Feng shui consultants can have responsibilities that easily spill over into interior design. 

Additionally, feng shui consultations can be either digital or in-person. Digital consultations cost less than in-person consultations in general because they don’t require travel.

Family Size

Some feng shui consultants charge extra for each additional person living in your home. If you have a big family complete with kids and an array of furry friends, you’ll end up paying more than someone who lives alone.

Cost to Feng Shui Yourself

The practice of feng shui is detailed and we always recommend hiring a professional consultation for a thorough job, especially if you’re new to feng shui. But if you have a basic understanding of the principles of feng shui, you can put them into practice yourself. There are plenty of comprehensive online feng shui resources to help you along the way. 

Tackling your home’s feng shui yourself can cost little to no money, depending on what resources you use and whether or not you need to replace furniture or repaint your living room.

If you’d rather spend your time lounging with your family or perfecting your self care routine, hiring a feng shui consultant will be easier and more efficient. With an already-packed schedule, trying to find time to learn every nuance of feng shui is an uphill battle.

How You Can Save Money on a Feng Shui Consultant

To save money on a feng shui consultant, hire them to assess one or two rooms instead of hiring them for a whole-house consultation. This will cut down on both the time and labor involved, meaning you’ll lower your bill. 

If you’re up for a challenge, you can create a feng shui home yourself. Look for free feng shui resources online or check out books on feng shui from your local library. Decorating your bedroom with feng shui might be more manageable than you think.

Feng Shui Questions and Answers

What should I consider when hiring a feng shui consultant?

Although a permit isn’t required for feng shui consultation, consultants should be able to provide you with a professional portfolio, experience, and/or references. 

What other projects should I do at the same time?

Declutter your home and tidy up before, during, and after your feng shui consultation. Feng shui calls for an organized, clutter-free space. Follow a comprehensive house cleaning checklist to stay on track.

Do feng shui consultants assess your outdoor space?

Yes, you can hire a feng shui consultant for your backyard or other outdoor space. Applying feng shui principles to your yard transforms it into a relaxing oasis, allowing you to fully enjoy your outdoor time. Water features, natural colors, and outdoor chimes are a few things you can incorporate into your outdoor space for optimal feng shui.

What are the benefits of hiring a feng shui consultant?

Hiring a feng shui consultant can help you invite good energy, or “chi”, into your space. They’ll use feng shui to align your energy with your environment (i.e. your home) to invite positive energy. Feng shui is said to improve various aspects of your life, including your physical health, mental wellbeing, and success.
