Kitchen Design And Feng Shui

Kitchen in the world of Feng Shui epitomizes nourishment and prosperity.  How you arrange things in your kitchen can greatly affect your health and your wealth. In this article we will discuss to you the different Feng Shui tips that you can apply whether you are just about to design your kitchen or if you are about to do renovation.

1.       Kitchen Location.  When applying Feng Shui in your kitchen, the first thing you need to think about is the location of the kitchen.  Ideally, the best location for the kitchen is a place that you don’t see when you enter the house; this would of course be the back of your house.

A view of the kitchen upon entering the house would make your life revolve around foods which most often than not can lead to eating problems.

 

If you already have your kitchen located near the entrance of your house, you can apply certain renovation and designing techniques that would divert the attention of any person coming into your house away from your kitchen. A good idea would be to hang curtains that would hide your kitchen.

 

2.       Kitchen layout.  You should design the layout in such a way that the cook can clearly see the doorway. Feng Shui consultants also suggest that it is good to have a something reflective in the kitchen. So utensils that are stainless are the way to go. It is also recommended to add mirrors behind the burner, as Chinese believe that by adding a reflective burner, you are in away doubling your wealth.

 

3.         Kitchen Lighting. Incandescent bulbs or halogen lights are the most recommended for kitchen. A well lighted kitchen is good for Feng Shui. Lights must be situated such that no shadows are casted while preparing and cooking food.

 

4.       Kitchen appliances and utensils. There must be a grouping among the appliances and utensils in the kitchen. You need to separate fire elements from water elements.
