Feng Shui Tips for a Very Small Kitchen

You can create good feng shui in a small kitchen

The kitchen is considered the heart of the home not only in feng shui, but in many, if not all, old cultures. Feng shui wisdom adds the element of your kitchen revealing the state of your health; as well as attracting the flow of wealth and abundance into your life. The kitchen is also a part of the very important feng shui triangle — the bedroom, the kitchen and the bathroom — which is directly connected to the state of your health and well-being.

What do you do, though, when your kitchen is very small and it seems like you can never keep it clean or find enough space for all your kitchen supplies? If you have a difficult time with people putting things away and keeping it clutter free, it may mean that you have more items than your kitchen can accommodate.

Decide on the very minimum you need in order to have a clear place for everything, and have everything in its own clear place. I know this is much easier said than done, but see if you can pack some items away to improve the feng shui energy of your kitchen.

One feng shui decorating tip that works very well for a small kitchen is, strangely enough, to have some open display shelving. This little feng shui trick opens up a small, confined space and lightens the energy by creating a much better flow and a spacious feeling. Of course, with this comes the added element of keeping the open shelves orderly and attractive. It is good to know, though, that for good feng shui your whole space has to be clutter-free, be it visible or not.

You can also consider repainting the wood cupboards in a lighter color, such as white or pale butter yellow, whichever color works best with all the other elements in your kitchen (the countertops, the floors, etc.)

With a small kitchen smart lighting becomes crucial, so be sure to not limit yourself to one boring, energy draining ceiling fixture. You need several levels of lighting to create a much better quality of energy. Mirrors, of course, are one of the best feng shui decor solutions for small spaces, they are called the aspirin of feng shui for a very good reason.

Find a way to place a mirror in your kitchen so as to bring more light and visually expand and enliven the space. Be sure to also have some fresh energy in your small kitchen, be it a small container garden with aromatic herbs, fresh flowers, a bowl with fresh fruits, bottles with pure water. Most of all, keep it clean, orderly and simple, while finding ways to bring joy and beauty into your very small kitchen.
