Feng Shui Architecture – Designing Your Dream Home for a Lifetime of Happiness and Success

Feng Shui Architecture

If you’re about to build your dream home, then you really do have a blank canvas on which to design your future happiness and success.

Using feng shui architecture allows you to position the layout of the house, rooms, land, garden, etc. in the most optimal ways for engaging in the flow of positive energy in and around your home. The foundations of your happiness begins here.

House Shape

The ideal feng shui architecture for your house shape design is square or rectangular. Any regular shape will allow for balance and harmony in the symmetry of the shape of the home.

Irregular shapes such as L shapes or U shapes that have missing corners of a complete regular shape, may create money problems or marital discord accordingly.

Remedies to correct these irregular shapes would include using lights or mirrors placed appropriately to give the appearance of an extension of the home.

Room Layouts

Feng shui architecture favors room layouts that are regular in shape also and where indivdual rooms are  not disproportionally too small or too large than each other.

Ceilings should be high enough not to feel cramped but not too high that you feel overpowered.They should be in good proportion to the rest of the house.

The Living Room

As the living room is the main public room of the home, when guests come to visit, it should be large, open and welcoming to encourage the accumulation of positive chi.

Never have the living room higher than the dining room or kitchen as the positive chi of the occupants will instead attach itself to the visitors instead.

The Kitchen

The kitchen in a feng shui architectured home, should be placed on the right side of the house and beside the dining room where the family eats. If it is too far away from the dining room this will lead to disagreements between family members, particularly between the parents and children.

The kitchen should be clean and airy allowing positive chi to circulate gently. A mirror in the dining room reflecting the table and the food on it is very good for abundance and well being.

Bathrooms and Toilets

Bathrooms and toilets should not directly face an opposite door. In fact you should not be able to easily see the toilet from outside the room it is in. The toilet is where the wealth or luck of the occupants can be flushed away so the doors to the bathroom and toilet should always be closed.

They should ideally not be located in the north area of the house as this will flush away the career opportunities of the breadwinner.

When employing feng shui architecture, the layout of rooms in the house should ideally encourage chi to move freely and smoothly from room to room throughout the house. Avoid any straight lines between the entrances from one room to the next.


Feng shui architecture places great importance on the main door of the house. This door, as a rule, should be solid, open inwards, be a good size and shape as compared to the rest of the house, be oriented correctly, free from poison arrows and open into a wide, bright room or lobby.

Any defects in the main door can result in extreme bad luck of the occupants, so it is important to take heed of these factors.

There should not be anything blocking the chi coming into the house through the main door, so keep the front of the house open and clear and the room or lobby well lit and welcoming.

Make sure the front door is not directly in line with your back door as your luck will come in and go straight out through the back, not staying long enough for you to enjoy it.

Employing feng shui architecture on your home, means never installing three doors in a direct line to each other, especially if the front or back door is one of them. The chi is moving too fast in this situation.

Hanging a wind chime on top each of the doors or a divider screen before the middle door can remedy this problem. All doors in the home should be regularly shaped, face each other squarely and be of the same size to each other.


Windows throughout the home should be regularly shaped and open completely, preferably outward. Windows that open inwards are considered harmful for career and money making opportunities.

Feng shui architecture does not recommend windows that slide up or down, nor to look onto an offensive view such as a tree trunk, sharp object or pole. Too many windows in a house will cause discord between the parents and children of the house though windchimes or crystals can remedy this.


When considering a multi-layer home in feng shui architecture, the stairs between levels of the house, should be broad and curve gracefully from the first storey to the main floor into a large hall, but they should not be spiral staircases.

Nor should they start from the front main door as this will send chi straight out.

The steps should be solid and not have open holes between them as this will result in money to flow out. Bannisters should be round and smooth and not contain any deadly poison arrows. Staircases should also be well lit to conduct good Chi to the sleeping areas upstairs.

Hopefully with these feng shui architecture design tips, you can incorporate some simple feng shui principles into the plan of your dream home for the best possible start to a lifetime of happiness and success.
