This section will explain the 5 Feng Shui tips for your references:

Tip 1 : Main Entrance

The main door is like the mouth for the house. It is the gateway between the world and the privacy of the home and air currents literally enter and exit at this point. 

 The positioning of a main door can determine the fortune or misfortune of the occupants. Therefore you must keep the entrance clear of any clutter to allow the energies to flow freely.
Make sure there is nothing in direct alignment with the door such as a tree or telegraph pole. To remedy this, place a Bagua mirror over the door so it is reflecting the Sha Qi.
Avoid facing a dark, pokey room, an interior staircase, mirror, stove, sink, fireplace, the door of a toilet, laundry, bathroom or bedroom. To remedy this keep the doors closed or place a screen between the doors.

Tip 2 : Bedrooms

Bedrooms should be sacred spaces where an adult or child can retreat and regenerate. Most people spent roughly one third of their lives in their bedroom, so maintaining balance and serenity in this area is essential. 

Tip 3 : Kitchen

In any case, it;s better if  you don't see the kitchen immediately upon entering the house, as this can be foreseen to cause digestive, nutritional, and eating problems. Having the kitchen at the entry point can also mean that guests will come over and eat and then leave immediately, and such a placement can also encourage the inhabitants to eat all the time. 

Tip 4 : Windows

A house should have sufficient windows. Windows are in very important to allow sufficient light or pleasant views into the room. 

Tip 5 : Dining and Living Room

Whenever possible the dining room should be separate from the living room. It is a social area for family members, thus it better to have as big as possible. 


So with the above tips, let's try to be in good balance with some Feng Shui.
