direct alignment front door – rear door
Imagine chi, or energy, as water flowing into your space. You will see that the water will run very fast through the two or more doors lined up directly without slowing down or nourishing the space. it is especially important to avoid a direct alignment of the front door with the rear door. the reason you want to avoid this situation is because all the good feng shui energy that enters through the front door will easily escape through the back door without having a chance to circulate and nourish your home.
staircase in front of the main door
The front door is called “the mouth of chi” in feng shui, as this is how the house absorbs much-needed chi, or energy food. When a staircase faces the front door directly, the feng shui energy quickly rises to the lowest or highest floor, thus leaving the main floor without the nourishment of feng shui energy.
bathroom in front of the main door
Is it possible to improve the feng shui of a house with the bathroom door facing the front door? yes it is. here are some practical feng shui tips to help you deal with this potentially bad feng shui situation. If your bathroom faces the front door, most of the energy will easily escape through the bathroom, leaving little to no good feng shui energy to nourish your home.
staircase in the center of a house
If you have a staircase in the center of your home or office, no matter the design, materials, and colors, you may want to apply specific feng shui cures to balance its energy. As a general rule, a central staircase is not good feng shui and needs some care and attention.
bathroom in the center of a house
A bathroom in the center of the house is generally considered bad feng shui. as the center of the house is the heart of the space in feng shui, also called the yin-yang point; usually you want to have it open, light and with a sense of beauty. When it comes to feng shui, the center of your home is also considered the area from which all other guas (or feng shui areas) receive energy.
master bedroom over garage
As a general rule, a bedroom above the garage is not good feng shui for two main reasons. garages have a lot of moving, “in and out”, unsettling energy, which is the opposite of the energy you want to cultivate in the bedroom. a bedroom above the garage has a very unstable energy base and will not promote good relaxation and sleep.
long and narrow corridor
A long, narrow hallway is considered bad feng shui if not cared for properly. The reason the feng shui of a long narrow hallway is bad is because the energy of a long hallway has a combination of rushing sha chi and, in most cases, stagnant energy (si chi). Don’t despair, though, as there are few home design challenges that can’t be improved with clever feng shui decorating!
