Whether you are remodeling your current home or building a brand new house, there is no doubt that you have some ideas of what you would like the space to look like.

Feng shui is a decorating technique that has been used successfully for quite some time. The phrase, feng shui is Chinese for wind and water and allows you to create a space that flows with positive energy, or chi. Since the kitchen is such an integral part of any home, choosing kitchen feng shui is a smart choice that allows positive energy to flow through the space. Read on to learn more about kitchen feng shui and how you can create a room that is positively amazing.
While feng shui in other rooms is a bit easier to create, the kitchen comes with its own challenges. The room is full of elements. You have water from the sink, fire from your stove, metal from the appliances, and earth is represented in counters. Feng shui says these should all cancel each other out, but that doesn’t necessarily happen in the kitchen.
Whether you or a designer is applying the elements of feng shui to your kitchen, it is important to consider many things. First of all, the year the house was built is important. The current year is important, too, as is the direction the house faces. If possible, moving the kitchen may be required for maximum benefits. If it is a newly built house that does not have plans yet, the feng shui is much easier to apply. If the room is already there or planned, it can be more challenging, but it is possible.
As you design your kitchen, you should think about communication. Being the heart of the home, this room should be a space that is conducive to being around others and communicating with them.
It is important that all of the aspects of the earth are represented in your kitchen for a positive flow. Since there are already many aspects, you need to make sure the sky is represented in your kitchen. The sky is important in a kitchen and can be brought in by a window. It can also enter the room with sky blue walls. This creates an open feeling in the room. Then, depending on the space, you will want to make sure all elements compliment each other and give the room the feel that you desire.
As you can see, choosing to apply the elements of feng shui to your kitchen is a smart choice. Use the information that you have learned here to help you create a room that everyone enjoys.
