Feng Shui Aspects For The Kitchens
The kitchen is the heart of the house. That’s why so many parties end up there. There are several aspects to keep in mind if you wish to create a Feng shui kitchen. For instance, location of the kitchen and the placement of stove in relation to other appliances are crucial considerations. Organization, lack of clutter, and dominant color are also very important. The location of your kitchen is an important consideration. Ideally, your kitchen should be situated in either the southern or eastern areas of your house, with windows facing either of those directions. Fire is the predominant element of the kitchen, and therefore, it is not wise to have your kitchen located directly next to the bathroom, which is dominated by the conflicting element of water. Similarly, if you have a two-story house, having a kitchen located directly below a bathroom is not considered good Feng shui.
Your kitchen shouldn’t be located near a back door because positive chi moves quickly through the kitchen and can easily escape through a rear exit. Additionally, chi is not supposed to flow in a straight line from the front of your house to the back. If your kitchen is lined up directly with the front door, you should consider setting up a curtain or tall plant so that the energy does not rush unobstructed from the front door through to the kitchen. Aside from the placement and location of appliances, if you want to have a Feng shui kitchen, you must keep it as clean, organized, and uncluttered as possible. Don’t overload your counter space with unnecessary gizmos and gadgets, and keep drawers and cabinets neat and organized, inside and out.
