According to the rules of Feng Shui, the bathroom and kitchen must follow certain rules and regulations regarding the furnishing and decoration.
For example, it is recommended that the toilet to always be covered, while in the kitchen, the stove must be positioned in the center for a more harmonious life.
Feng Shui Kitchen Principles
According to Feng Shui, the kitchen arrangement is essential for a harmonious life. Within it, the stove position is very important – it is the heart of the kitchen, and if placed correctly, the stove will surely bring in your family harmony, luck and prosperity. Therefore, you should position the stove in the center of the room, to view the whole kitchen when cooking.
If you have a small kitchen and you can not place the stove in the center, you should place it in the middle of a wall, even if that means to change the whole kitchen cabinets to fit with this appliance.
Meanwhile, Avoid placing the refrigerator near the stove. Stove is a fire and therefore should be positioned at a distance of at least 3-feet from the fridge, otherwise, you can create an energy conflict between the two, and things won’t be in your favor.
Feng Shui Bathroom Principles
One of the golden rules of Feng Shui bathroom should not be near the access door in the house or near the kitchen, because otherwise are attracted only negative energies. In addition, there are not respected the rules of hygiene when bathroom and kitchen are very close. If however, the bathroom is, near the entrance door, install a mirror in front of the bathroom door to block the negative flow traffic.
Another rule of Feng Shui in the bathroom is that the toilet to be installed separately from the tub / shower and sink. This advice comes from the fact that both sink and tub are places for cleaning and should not stay near the toilet. If however the bathroom is built so that sanitary objects are in line, then you should keep the toilet bowl covered with a lid. It is recommended to leave the lid down before flushing to prevent positive energies to lose, at the same time with the water. In addition, it is more hygienic to cover the bowl to prevent water droplets to jump on the tiles, soap or toothbrush.
A very important rule for both bathroom and kitchen, is to always ensure that the valves and pipes do not drip. If this happens, make sure you ask for the help of a plumber in no time. Any lost liquid is bad luck, especially in terms of money.
Another Feng Shui decorating tip is to buy bath mat, toilet bowl cover, towels and shower curtain in shades closer to the nature colors. You can choose green, brown, blue, etc.
