Incorporating Feng Shui for your kitchen will take some surveying. You have to look at how it is placed within the home. The kitchen is usually located adjacent to the backyard of the home. There’s a good reason for that.
From a visual standpoint, if the kitchen was near or at the front, it could pose a mindset of issues with eating and nutrition. Having it in the front of the home could mean that you may be tempted to eat every time you enter. It would be just as bad if you have guests coming to visit. The first thing they would want to do is eat.
However, if your home is set up like this, you can do something about it. You could purchase a curtain and install in the area of the kitchen entryway. Or, you could have French doors measured to install in that area. Another idea you could implement is to have something that will peak their interest. This can cause a distraction on the real focus (the kitchen).
If you’re cooking, you should have an eye on the entryway of the kitchen. There are kitchen where the stove is facing the wall. To implement to the Feng Shui method, people that are cooking can put a mirror over the stove.
For newer homes, builders are now including islands that sit in the middle of the kitchen area. This would be a good addition to the Feng Shui concept. When the island is strategically placed in the middle, the person that’s cooking can see what’s going on in another area.
When it’s set up this way, they can still be involved with what’s happening in a nearby area, along with continue to cook meals.
This type of kitchen setup is inviting because it allows other people to come in and help cook. The original person that was doing all of the cooking won’t feel slighted. It can make for a greater camaraderie and relationship bonding.
In Feng Shui, the stove is the symbol of health and wealth. All of the burners should be used equally by doing rotations. Don’t use one or two burners and leave the rest unused. Using all four in equal rotation can cause you to receive money from more than one source.
It has been noted that with the older model stoves, those are actually better because they incorporate the Feng Shui method of slowing down. Take a good look at what’s going on and what you’re doing.
