1. Focus on the internal “Bright Hall”

In feng shui terms, the internal “Bright Hall” refers to the open space immediately after your front door. This area is important to gather Qi (energy) in the house. Feng shui masters recommend making this area as spacious as possible for the Qi to gather and circulate. Ensure that this space is free from clutter and unnecessary items so you can capture positive energies from the external environment into your home.

2. Water placement

The placement of water in your living room is one of the important aspects of feng shui. An incorrect placement could create serious problems for house occupants because it will severely affect the flow of Qi. For example, having a water feature in the middle of the living room creates excessive Yang Qi, as there is an active and moving centre within the property. This feature could potentially compromise the health of the house occupants.

Consequently, if you’d like to place an aquarium in your living room that’s over three feet in length, it’s best to seek advice from a feng shui master before selecting a location to place it.

3. The TV’s location

Some people believe that electronic objects including your TV might release electromagnetic fields that disrupt the flow of Qi at home. While it might have some effect on your health, it has nothing to do with feng shui. However, it can be used as a way to reactivate the Qi flow in your living room, especially if a water feature cannot do the job. Just ensure that the TV is located in the right area of your living room.

4. Indoor house plants

Another misconception is that plants affect the feng shui of a home. Some believe that having plants may improve your relationship prospects. Unfortunately, indoor plants are not a special feature in feng shui. However, they can be used to mitigate negative effects in a home. For example, it can be used to “soften” the impact of Sha Qi that comes from a wall corner – that’s where a plant feature comes in handy, placed between the wall corner and the living room. Ensure that this doesn’t obstruct the amount of sunlight entering the living room.
