How’s the energy in your kitchen? As the most used room in the home, you should consider how the Feng Shui of your kitchen can affect the feel of the space.

Get those good vibes flowing with these Feng Shui tips for your kitchen.

Keep It Simple

Don’t overcrowd your kitchen with appliances, and don’t overstock your cupboards and drawers with cutlery and gadgets you don’t need. In Feng Shui, the state of your kitchen reflects the state of your health. Keep the space simple, clean and clutter-free to create an open pathway for good energy.

Add Plants and Flowers

Green plants symbolise the energy of new beginnings. Indoor plants and flowers are a great addition to your kitchen. In particular, peace lilies are thought to bring the energy of abundance and health into the home. Time to add a floral centrepiece to your dining table!

Choose Colours Wisely

Colour has a huge impact on the feel of a room. When it comes to choosing a colour for your kitchen, you should consider how you want the space to make you feel. For example, if you want to use your kitchen as a space to entertain, you might choose orange, as it is considered a social, lively, and extroverted colour in Feng Shui. For a more relaxed kitchen, green brings feelings of balance, healing, freshness, and prosperity.

Let There Be Light

Light is the strongest expression of energy in Feng Shui, and both natural and artificial lighting is important for those good vibes. Ensure your kitchen is receiving the light it needs to feel bright, warm, and welcoming.

Use Some Scents

Scents and aromatherapy are commonly used in Feng Shui to evoke certain feelings and effect the flow of energy in a space. Citrus scents are recommended for the kitchen, as they encourage a feeling of cleansing and uplifting your mood. Mint is thought to encourage your appetite and reduce stress levels, so you may like to switch between the two to mix things up.

Ditch the Mirror

Mirrors reflecting flames and heat in the kitchen can bring bad luck to your home. Unless small and decorative, replace your kitchen mirror with a funky piece of abstract art.
