Feng shui is one of the top 2020 home decor trends, but it’s never really gone out of style. Here are some tips on how to feng shui your kitchen…
Feng shui is an ancient Chinese art of organising and decorating a home to encourage positive energy (Chi) to help ensure good health and prosperity.
Feng shui principles tend to make interior design sense since there is a focus on improving the flow of a home while making it look calm and uncluttered.
The importance of the kitchen
It’s known as the heart of the home – even in feng shui.
Feng shui consultant Cynthia Chomos says that, from a feng shui perspective, the kitchen relates to your health and wealth. She says that this is based on the premise that, as you nourish your body with healthy food, you are able to go out into the world to manifest money and resources for your life.

Clean the stove
Feng shui expert Robyn Stevens says that the biggest symbol of prosperity in your home is the stove.
Stevens recommends keeping the stove top clean, making sure that all the burners and switches work and, because the burners represent your wealth-generating potential, she says that you should use all of them rather than just stick to one or two favourites.
Reflect the stove
Place a shiny kettle on the stove top.
According to Chomos, a shiny kettle reflects the burners on the stove and symbolically doubles your wealth potential.
