Always thought that incorporating Feng Shui at home was about buying amethyst rock formations, golden frogs or adhering to specific colour combinations? Think again.

Turns out, you don’t have to sacrifice your home’s style just for good luck. And you shouldn’t, according to World-renowned Chinese metaphysic consultant, Joey Yap.

“Feng Shui is all about harnessing the Qi in your home, which are the natural energies found in your surrounding environment. Rather than overwhelming your space with artwork and items, focus on finding and circulating the good Qi. Pay attention to the location and directions of your home, its rooms and the important furnishings used in it,” he says.

Here, Joey shares some simple Feng Shui rules to follow that won’t cramp your home’s look.


For the Overall Home:

  • Don’t get caught up with Feng Shui ‘decorations’

The market is flooded with objects claiming to emit negative or positive Qi. This is superstition, not Feng Shui. Decorations and objects cannot do much to the overall Feng Shui of a property as good energies come from the environment.

For the Foyer/Living Room:

  • Don’t obstruct the main door

Good Qi enters the home through your main door. Keep it free from obstructions both inside and outside to allow positive energies to flow smoothly into your space. On the outside, leave adequate space for Qi to collect before entering your home.

  • Don’t align the main door with the kitchen door/back door

Having the two doors aligned means allowing the good energies to simply pass through. To avoid this, install a partition to ‘block’ its path and allow it to circulate and disperse to the rest of your home.

  • If possible, add a water feature

If space permits, consider getting a gentle, flowing water feature outside the main door to facilitate the collection of Qi. Though, do consult a Feng Shui expert first before installing one!

For the Kitchen:

  • Keep your stove and sink at least 1 feet away (and not opposite) each other

Have at least 1 ft of space between a Fire element object (e.g. stove, cooktop, oven) and a Water element object (e.g. sink) to prevent a ‘Fire and Water clash’ which could promote health problems like high and low blood pressure or heart-related conditions. Never have them located directly opposite one another as well.

  • Locate your kitchen at the side of your house

While this may be hard to control for apartments, try to align your kitchen to the side sectors of your house. Never have your cooking area in the center of your home, as this creates instability and long-term health issues.

For the Bedroom:

  • Keep your bedroom bright and airy

Keep your bedroom well ventilated and lit – a stuffy, dim bedroom negates any good energies. Regularly open the windows in your bedroom to facilitate this.

  • Have sharp edges from other furniture point away from the bed

Sharp edges from tables, cabinets and other furniture and décor should not point towards your bed. These edges are like ‘arrows’ that weaken your energy and affect your health and well-being.

  • Ensure your door is not directly facing your bed

For a better night’s sleep and improved relationships with your other half, make sure your bedroom door is not facing the bed, and that you are not sleeping underneath an exposed beam.

For the Bathroom:

  • Keep it clean and organised

It’s a common misconception that toilets ‘flush’ away wealth and emit negative Qi. As long as the bathroom is kept clean, hygienic and does not emit an unpleasant odour, it should not pose much of an issue.

  • But, avoid having the room door facing the toilet door directly

In the same logic as the main and back doors, having the toilet and bedroom doors aligned facing each other will allow positive energies to simply pass through, instead of circulating within the room.

For the Study:

  • Avoid using a dark, small and windowless room

The study is where you take important steps to improving your financial position in life, whether it’s through work, studies or reading. Try to keep this area bright and well ventilated.

  • Avoid aligning the desk with your door

Don’t have your seat (and therefore back) facing directly towards the door. Doing so might affect the flow of Qi and cause distractions in the study.
