The living room is an important space in any home, whether it’s a loft, a studio apartment, a duplex, a single family home, or a mansion. The reason the living room is so important is because it’s the primary social space in the home, whether among the residents themselves or invited guests as well.
A feng shui living room will not be located in the center of the house. Along with the feng shui guidelines for two exterior walls in the living room, this rule is to maintain optimal, healthy flow of qi. If the living room is housed in the depth of the house, energy can’t easily reach it; the flow stalls and eventually stops because it has to pass through too many other rooms before reaching the living room.
The feng shui living room, due to its connection with external walls, will be naturally well-lit. In fact, the space will ideally receive plenty of sunlight. In addition to the natural light through windows on exterior walls, a feng shui living room will be well ventilated because of the windows’ capacity to open and keep fresh air flowing. This freshness is a key component of feng shui – vitality and health.
Modest Doors & Windows – The feng shui living room will have exterior walls (and hopefully windows) and a door or two, but it should be noted that the ideal location for the living room avoids too many windows and more than two doors. This is because having too many doors and windows into/out of the living room creates somewhat of a chaotic qi current that is unsettling and even damaging to those in the living room.
