Feng Shui Kitchen Stove

Feng Shui Kitchen Stove Taboos

1. The kitchen stove should avoid black and red colors since red belongs to fire and the stove also belongs to fire in five elements, forming fire on fire which is harmful. From the perspective of color psychology, red should be avoided because it easily makes people bad-tempered, so is black.

2. The stove should not face the kitchen door; otherwise, the family is prone to bad luck, unstable emotion and frequent quarrel.

3. The stove should not face the bedroom door, or the family health will be affected. The solution is changing the position of the stove or closing the kitchen door.

4. The stove should lean against the wall rather than the open space. It is ominous for the stove leaning against a window.

5. The stove should not have the opposite direction with the home. For example, it is ominous if the house is north-facing while the stove is south-facing.

6. The stove should not be installed on the water pipe because it belongs to fire while the water pipe is for water drainage; fire and water are incompatible, hence they should not be close to each other.

7. The stove should not face the sink directly, or the fire and water restriction may lead to career setbacks and marital conflicts. Also, the stove should not face the refrigerator, a place of storage and wealth accumulation which belongs to water and should avoid the fire attack; otherwise, the family will suffer from health problems.

8. The stove should not face the Buddha statue in the house, or it is the disrespect to the Buddha statue, which will bring bad luck to the family.  

9. The stove should not be placed in the west. In Feng Shui theory, the "metal" in the west is constricted by the "fire" of the stove, thus ominous. In addition, the food cooked with the stove may go bad easily under the west sunlight and make you get sick after eating.

10. The stove should not have a beam above. If it has a smoke exhauster above, however, the adverse impact on the family health will be resolved.

11. The stove should not face a mirror which blocks the God of Wealth. If there is a mirror in your kitchen, make sure it does not face the stove.

Cures for a centrally located kitchen that can't be moved right now (0 Reply ) Asked by A***s

My house faces almost exactly West. My husband's Kua (main income maker) is a 3 (I'm a 2). Our house is in an L shape with the kitchen on the inside of the L. So it's middle if you square the house out for the Bagua. When you open the front door there is a small living room and directly ahead is an open kitchen with a stove in the island, while cooking you're almost looking directly at the front door (line of sight is directly with the hinges of the front door). Add to that we have sloped ceilings that are made of wood that are stained a dark color and black beams (one right over the stove) and the south wall of the kitchen shares a wall with our only bathroom. Can anyone please help and tell me what colors to look at painting my cabinets and walls?(The countertops are black and cannot change right now) Should I also paint our wood ceilings and beams white? (It is heavy and oppressing). Please help. All I keep reading is how bad the placement of the kitchen is, the stove in line sight of the door, beam over stove, etc. etc. I've been trying to figure this out for almost a year (when we moved here). Besides potential colors is there any other cures I could place?

stove facing laundry room (3 Replies ) Asked by a***c

hi, is it ok for my gas stove to face my laundry room door?If not, what remedy should i do? Im in the midst of renovation and am still thinking how to avoid it.. should i let my part of my kitchen counter top facing the door, and the stove facing on the side of laundry door? Will that work? I would prefer to put the stove closer to the wall instead of fixing it to the middle of my kitchen top. Thank you.. I dont think its feasible to place my gas stove on the other end of my kitchen, as its facing on the side wall of the toilet and has no window nearby, and is directly facing my dinning room and table... thank you

Kitchen design (2 Replies ) Asked by N***e

Hi Is a mirrored tile splash back behind a stove good Feng shui? Also I have an L shaped kitchen with an island bench. Currently the broom cupboard is at the end ( outside edge of kitchen into hallway) of the L shape next to fridge. Because the fridge is deeper than cupboards I am considering moving the broom cupboard on the inside of L on other side of fridge, which looks aesthetically better but I'm not to sure about having broom cupboard deeper into kitchen ( as I am a bit of a germaphobic lol), and was wondering if this too may not be good Feng shui. Thanks for your help :)
