This is the first point of entry into your home so it is important to make a bold statement. Things like bright lights and vibrant colors signal vitality. Using “weight” like a bold area rug are perfect ways to add Feng Shui.
Consider switching to a round dining table. The round shape is thought to bring wealth and promote prosperity. Make sure to place your table in the center of the room. (Oval and Octagon shapes are also good options)
A good way to enhance your dining experience and create Feng Shui in your home is to add a crystal chandelier. It adds light while also promoting a slower paced meal and time to enjoy your guests. Chandeliers also promote chi (energy force) within the space.
