The centre of the home, according to Feng Shui concepts, is located in the centre of the home. Since any situation in this region has an effect on all members of the household, here are some Feng Shui tips to improve the positive energy in the centre of the building.
Do’s and Don’ts for the Centre of Home in Feng Shui
1. Avoid putting a staircase in the middle of your house because it represents a heavy burden at the core and can make your life unstable.
If you find yourself in this situation, you can slow the energy flow by hanging a faceted crystal in this region.
2. Do not purchase a home with a toilet in the centre of the house – this will affect your wealth luck as well as your health.
Place a money plant (Devil’s ivy) in the bathroom with a spotlight shining on it as a cure for such a situation.
3. To allow qi to circulate, keep this area open, airy, and clean. Remove something in your path that is obstructing your progress.
Avoid putting your trash can or pet’s home in this area because the stench can quickly spread in the property.
4. You can put artwork in the centre of the room, but make sure that the paintings have a meaningful and auspicious sense.
5. Avoid placing the kitchen in the middle of the room because it is packed with fire and represents “fire attacking the heart.” It can deteriorate the wellbeing of family members and have a negative impact on luck.
Furthermore, imagine your kitchen is in the centre of the house, and grease, smoke, and cooking odours can easily spread throughout the house. How do you feel?
6. Make this area as bright as possible by using natural light. If not, a Himalayan salt lamp or other types of lighting may be used to illuminate the region.
7. Avoid placing large plants in the middle of the room because the wood element (plant) contrasts with the Earth element (Centre of the house belong to the Earth element)
