You are in charge of the people you allow in to your life. The same applies for your home. Rooms such as the living room, office and bedroom your furniture should be positioned so you can see the door if possible. Your mind opens up to new possibilities once you can see the incoming flow.
One of the easiest for tips and tricks in designing and enlarging an interior space. But that doesn’t mean mirrors are to go up on every wall. Before you hang a mirror think about what it is you are reflecting. In the Feng Shui sense, mirrors are best hung in active areas.
The dining area is a perfect example of what would be an active area. Having a mirror in the dining room reflects friends, family and food. Essentially reflecting positive and happy moments!
Mirrors in the bedroom opposite the bed are said to be no good. This reflects the person sleeping and therefore doubles the people in your bed! Not a good sign for relationships! A television counts as a reflective surface too. If there’s nowhere else they can go cover them up at night.
