By the author of Small Changes, Dynamic Results! Feng Shui for the Western World
If we like our kitchens, it is logical that we will want to spend more time there, creating meals that nurture our bodies and souls. If we don’t like them we will be tempted to just get in and get out, eating more fast foods and eating on the fly and our health (and figure) will suffer.
In Feng Shui Kitchens are considered one of most important rooms in the home. They represent the hearth and home and should be clean, well-lit, happy places for friends and family to gather and connect.
Since our health is so important, Kitchens are also connected to wealth, as poor health will hamper our ability to make a living.
Here are 9 Feng Shui fixes to help you love spending time in this most important space!
Make it Bright and Happy
Kitchens are one of the more active or yang areas of the home (see my article on Yin and Yang), so bring in brighter colors, active, happy and inspiring artwork and brighter lighting, and bring in nature. Live plants and/or pictures from nature will always inspire out souls! (See Bringing Nature into the Home)
Kitchens are magnets for everything to land, so you want to head it off at the pass and create places for everything to belong. Baskets are great for this. Train yourself to always put keys and mail in your designated container. (See Clutter Article)
Clear Refrigerator Door Clutter
Does your refrigerator door look like an overwhelming cacophony of to do lists and a hodgepodge of assorted pictures?
Refrigerator doors are great places to celebrate achievements and display pictures of friends and loved ones but they often get out of hand. A good rule of thumb it to take everything down, store in a shoe box and rotate the pictures, giving everything and everyone prominence, rotating them every few weeks.
