Light and airy homes with little clutter appeal (aka Minimalism nowadays, thanks to the Marie Kondo method)to most people so Feng Shui practices are often just good common sense.
There are few modifications however, that can make all the difference to a Chinese client; such as working out the property’s position in relation to the points of a compass and how each area corresponds with the Bagua (Feng Shui energy map) then placing something symbolic in that area.

This concept of good feng shui is popular and used by most kitchen designers, whether they are feng shui practitioners or not.
