Because let’s be completely real with ourselves, no one likes to relax in a cluttered house! Clear your mind (and the clutter!) before diving into your feng shui projects. You’ll probably have tons more space to work with, as well!
Find Your Lucky Kua Number
Yes, this isn’t just a thing from Chinese takeout. Lucky numbers ARE a thing, and you should determine yours! Use this chart when determining your lucky number, and use it when decorating. For example, if your number is 1, face your bed either north or south.
Get Good Air (and Light!) Quality
To promote good energy (or chi!) make sure you make the most of the air and light in your home. Windows should be seen as the focal point, as they provide light. Use plants to help with the air flow in your home.
Learn Your Energy Map
Different flows of your home are connected to different events in your life. For example, the southeast corner of your house is connected to career and money, so this area may be good for an office space!
Learn the Feng Shui Elements
There are five basic feng shui elements: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. If you are looking to focus on the health aspect of your home, you should incorporate more lush plants and wood furniture into the eastern sections of your home. Decorate with wood and water for more prosperity!
Classify Your Birth Element
“Nourish” your energy by determining your birth element. Use this chart when determining your birth element, and make sure that you make a few interior design decisions with that in mind!
Learn Your Lucky Directions
Yes, yes, we also have a lucky direction! Your lucky direction is based on your Kua number (see previous slide). Use this chart if you need more assistance. Be sure to take your personal goals into mind when determining how to decorate your hoe.
Learn About The Energy of Your Home

Never Work With Your Back To A Door
You heard me! Reposition your desk to have it facing a door for maximum feng shui. Working with your back to the door may out you in a compromising position! When you reposition your desk, no one can sneak up on you while working!
