Feng Shui Tips for Your Living Room

Face sofas toward doors or open areas. Furniture should be arranged so those seated in sofas, chairs or large recliners shouldn't have to turn to see who enters the room. This presentation, especially if formed in a circular shape, helps to create a welcoming openness to all who enter.

Any good feng shui living room layout facilitates conversation. While it's important to arrange seating so the seats face the main entrance, it's equally important that they are placed close enough together to allow for a natural conversation. Too much spacing may feel awkward and uncomfortable for guests trying to engage in conversation.

Focus the room's attention on a centerpiece. A fireplace, television, coffee table, or artwork can be a focal point in your living room. Ideally, you'll want the focus to be on something that provokes conversation and builds relationships.

Brighten the room with calming light and mirrors. For chi to be able to flow through your living room, all dark areas (including corners) need to be well lit. Additionally, mirrors are important in Feng shui since they reflect natural lighting from windows, as well as the calming light from inside. 

Invoke Natural Elements in All Directions of Your Home. To bring in positive chi energy, add decor that corresponds with natural elements in the north, south, east, and west directions of your room.

  • North = Water: Hang artwork of waterscapes, add an aquarium, place a water fountain, and include black and blue colors on the north wall.
  • South = Fire: Arrange candles, place wooden furniture and include pink, red, orange, and green colors on the south wall. 
  • East = Earth: Set wooden picture frames, wooden bookshelves, live plants, and include green and brown colors on the east wall.
  • West = Metal: Place metal bowls, trays, figurines, candle holders, picture frames, furniture, and include blue, gray, gold, tan, and bronze colors on the west wall.
