When it comes to design, there needs to be a balance between what looks cool and what makes sense. Many designers tend to lose perspective of this and tend to design without any consideration to the requirements of the client, instead, opting for the 'coolest' design.

When we think about our Home Value, we always refer to its location and floor area. But what we don’t think about is its Psychic Value, the value of how much we cherish our homes and the value we place on a property when we resell it.

Ever wondered how buildings affect the way we view our world? It is so natural to live in a state on NON AWARENESS and for many of us, this is how we are, walking, living and doing things while quite oblivious to our surroundings.

It is important to attune yourself to the clearing process. The act itself is a departure from a normal kind of day. It is a departure from routine, and the mind gets a creative jolt that is not unwelcome. When the mind focuses on the process of dejunking physical space, it automatically goes into cleansing mode.

When we design our homes we generally concentrate our efforts on the more public areas such as the living and dining halls and we often put less effort into the other areas which we tend to use quite often.

Feng Shui Guidelines for Rooms - Part III
Kitchens are very difficult rooms to get right using Feng Shui.
Think about it for a moment. You have a clash straightaway of fire and
water--in the appliances that you find in a kitchen. The kitchen, as it
contains water and also food, is connected with wealth and is often
called one of the 'water' rooms. In Ancient China the kitchen
directions/locations were worked out very carefully and whenever
possible they were placed in the North[Water], East[Wood] or South
East[Wood,with touches of water and wind]. The most favoured was the
South East where the breezes helped to keep the charcoal stove alight,
the South East of course also symbolises Wealth. In kitchens, avoid
placing fire and water near to, or opposite each other. For example,
cookers and fridges, cookers and dishwashers. Try to separate them. Be
careful also when placing the cooker that, on the floor above, there is
not a bed directly above it. This can often lead to infection after
infection, colds and sore throats. Cookers should never be in the North
and water should never be in the South. If this happens----- because of
the design of the house, other elements have to be brought in to
compensate. The kitchen will be a yang room,with lots of activity. It
should be kept uncluttered with no knives on display, nor any
untidiness on work surfaces. Knives on display in a kitchen have the
same negative effect as knives, guns, brass cannons [these may be used
as protectors under special circumstances] and other such objects
throughout the house, including of course, stuffed animal heads. They
are all connected with cutting, killing and violence. There will always
be a lot of angular shapes in a kitchen so wherever possible introduce
rounded shapes. Usually these can be in the form of pots and pans.
Stainless steel, reflective shiny ones are excellent Feng Shui as are
reflective surfaces throughout the kitchen.
Kitchen Equipments / Appliances
There is a lot of electro magnetic energy in the kitchen which also
explains why it is thought of as a yang room. But, like the TV and
stereo in the living room, these pieces of electrical equipment can be
used to energise appropriate sectors of the Pa Kua which you want to
focus upon, such as career or health. It is vitally important then that
any electrical items in the kitchen are maintained carefully, work
efficiently, and never allowed to become noisy. Once again as with
other rooms, good natural light is important. Light, but if you wish,
slightly brighter colours on the walls are therefore a good idea with a
few stronger colours coming in through equipment and ornaments. These
colours will depend on where the kitchen is situated in the Pa Kua.
Crystals in the window and indeed herbs growing on the window sill are
very good Feng Shui. Kitchen doors should be closed whenever possible.
Food on the dining table is excellent Feng Shui, but food being
prepared, even the smell of it is not!
Bathrooms and Toilets
Bathrooms are notorious in Feng Shui. Wherever they appear they can
cause damage! The bathroom/toilet is a Water element room, like the
kitchen, and flushing the toilet equals flushing away wealth. In
Ancient China and Japan, the toilet would not be a part of the living
area of a property, since it symbolised decay and filth. Today, we have
bathrooms/toilets in houses. It is said then that the best positions,
or the 'best worst' positions for a bathroom/toilet are in the South
East or East. The South East is the Wealth corner and is associated
with the full richness of life, the East represents growth, family,
health, longevity and the realisation of ambitions. Other locations are
not so good, especially the North, which is Career and Life Journey and
which is already a Water element zone. Far too much water symbolism can
result in negative chi dominating. By now you should be beginning to
realise what to do about it. That's right ! Introduce more of the other
four elements especially Earth element. Colours such as yellows, terra
cotta, caramels with touches of brown would help. Another good element
to bring into'over watered' bathrooms, or into locations other than the
ones mentioned, is that of Wood, greens in bathrooms are very helpful.
Always reduce water symbolism in bathrooms, all the typical Western
things I'm afraid, lots of blues, seahorses, starfishes, dolphins and
any touches of black--they should go! Again, as mentioned with the
other rooms, natural light is important. Mirrors can be used to help
with this, but ensure that no mirror reflects the toilet---which would
double the problem! Wealth, as well as water, is anything circular, so
round baths and wash basins are good as are a few rounded pebbles for
decoration, as pretty as you wish! You can also place pretty pebbles in
the plugholes, when they are not in use--but please ensure that the
pebbles are large enough not to slip down the plughole! I want no
plumbers' bills!!Mirrors are better if contained in a frame, preferably
wood, or certainly let them have a bevelled edge.
I think just about everyone now knows that in Feng Shui you keep
the toilet lid closed when not in use! Also, after use, close the lid,
then flush. Above the toilet, high enough so that you do not bang your
head on it, have a five bar [solid] metal windchime. This will push
down on the toilet and stabilise the 'nastiness'. It is also essential
to close the bathroom door whenever possible and have a small mirror
[or large, if you prefer] on the outside of the bathroom door. This
effectively makes the bathroom disappear and is generally good, but
particularly important when you have a bedroom, study or office door
opposite the bathroom room. As with all mirrors, ensure that they do
not chop off people's heads. The toilet is best if it is not seen
straight away as you enter the bathroom. This can be important when
planning ensuite bathrooms, which are not a good idea as they bring
water into the bedroom, which you should never do! [You can imagine
then how bad water beds are!]If you must have an ensuite, keep the door
closed. If there is no door, install a screen---hide it, especially
views of the toilet, from the bed at all costs! Another extremely 'bad'
position for a toilet is just by the front door, opposite the front
door, or opposite the back door. All the above enhancements and
protectors should be applied.
