Therefore, creating and decorating your kitchen in accordance with the principles of Feng Shui, you contribute to your prosperity and health.
Feng Shui is a rather complex doctrine, presented by different schools, and tips are usually given a specific house and people living in it. But despite this, there are basic principles applicable to the arrangement of any kitchen.
Not always the location of the kitchen depends on us. But if you are building a country house or you have the option of redevelopment, then you can put the kitchen in accordance with the principles of Feng Shui. Better when the kitchen is in the back of the house, or, at least, behind the Central axis of the house.
In any case, you don’t have to, as soon as you go into the house, immediately to stumble look to the kitchen. This may contribute to the emergence of problems associated with digestion. The location of the kitchen directly at the main entrance can lead to the fact that the incoming guests will leave immediately after eating, and to encourage the inhabitants of the house have all the time, incessantly.
But even if your kitchen is in front of the house, don’t panic, there are certain tools and techniques that reduce the negative impact of such a location. Hang the curtain or beaded curtains over the kitchen door. You can also obliquely from the kitchen to place something bright and distracting the mind, like a painting or any other decorative object, so that when you enter the house glance fell upon him, and not in the kitchen.
In the kitchen there should be colors of red, pink or orange shades. These are the colors of fire, and they can provoke disputes and quarrels. So if you and your husband usually are arguing exactly in the kitchen, then take a look around – may be to blame for the color of the walls.
It is best to use in the kitchen bright colors and cool colors: white, light green, blue. Of the five elements – Earth, Water, Fire, Wood and Metal kitchen combines the elements of Fire and Water. In line with this, best kitchen colours – white, color, balancing both elements. Fortunately, the fashion for kitchen appliances and accessories, as well as elements of decor stainless steel also contributes to this balance. Stainless steel can be attributed to the cold and light colors recommended by the experts of Feng Shui.
Fluorescent light is not suitable for all rooms; it constantly flickers, negatively affecting the eyes and nervous system, which may contribute to increased blood pressure, intraocular pressure and headaches. However, it is very popular due to the bright light and low cost. If you decide that you can’t do in the kitchen without the fluorescent light, complete at least one regular fluorescent light.
One of the most important principles for the kitchen is to the person who prepares, was in a dominant position. That is, standing over a hot stove, you should be facing the door, and in any case not the back. As within modern small kitchens, this is quite difficult to achieve, the consultants of Feng Shui are usually advised to hang over the stove or the mirror or something else with a mirrored or reflective surface. The mirror can be any size, but the larger the surface, the better will be corrected.
In addition, good when the kitchen is quite spacious and has a wide doorway. In this case, the owner does not feel isolated from life the rest of the family or guests. From this point of view the perfect Studio apartments where the living space includes a living room, dining room and kitchen. Due to this, one who prepares, is aware of all home events, ranging from intelligent conversations about the fate of the world and ending with a discussion of homework offspring. It also contributes to the fact that your household will be more willing to help you in the kitchen. Thus, the kitchen becomes a “social center” of the house.
According to many experts of Feng Shui, kitchen equipment should be based on the rule of the triangle, i.e. fridge, stove and sink should form the corners of a triangle. The distance between them should be 1.5-2 meters, it will provide maximum comfort with minimum repetitive motion. Besides, due to this arrangement, the elements of Fire (stove, microwave) are separated from the elements of Water (fridge, sink, racks for drying dishes). They should be separated from each other by elements of Wood, such as wooden furniture or any other items made of wood, suitable in particular any plant or even a picture of the plant.
Like all rooms in the house, the kitchen must be maintained in clean and tidy. In the kitchen you can’t fuss and argue with each other. You should immediately get rid of the broken and broken things.
The stove should not stand near a window, since the heat plate, according to Feng Shui, represents prosperity and wealth. And you don’t want your wealth flew out the window? To cook on the stove is preferable in the microwave, because the microwave propagates electromagnetic field, which has a negative impact on the state of the soul and body of man. For the same reason, it is better to use a gas stove than an electric. In General, each family must determine for themselves the relationship between the number of modern devices and the principles of Feng Shui.
