 It is the harmonious combination of wind and water that provides vital ch’i energy to the entire space that surrounds us. Energy flows away with their imbalance. The house should be spacious with high ceilings. The minimum number, and preferably the complete absence of sharp and protruding corners is recommended.

A rectangular or square shape is considered correct. In such a house or apartment, the holistic ch’i energy is best concentrated. The same applies to the interior layout: get rid of narrow spaces, sharp corners and nooks.

Avoid long straight passages. This is an easy way to attract negative sha energy. To protect yourself from it, place lamps on the ceiling of the corridor in a staggered order. Another option is to decorate the floor and ceiling with smooth wavy lines. 

Do not narrow the entrance area. The hallway should be spacious and bright. It is not recommended to place a window, balcony or mirror directly opposite the entrance door. It is also desirable to avoid a view of the kitchen from the entrance. The main living room should be the brightest, most spacious and “breathing” part of the house.  It collects the most ch`i energy, on which the well-being of the family depends. 

The toilet and bathroom cannot be located opposite the entrance to the apartment, in its center or on the centerlines. By the way, the kitchen also has no place on the axes.

Feng shui rooms for sleeping are the subject of special attention of fans of this teaching. The headboard of the bed should be adjacent to the wall. The bed itself should be placed so that it is not reflected in the mirror and, lying on it, you can see the door to the bedroom.
