Your stove is the second most important piece of furniture in your home. (What’s even more important? Hint: you sleep in it.)
Feng Shui has some very definite ideas about how to place your stove in your kitchen.
Most important is to place the cook in the Commanding Position.
This photo, which I took on a recent house tour here in Brooklyn, shows the ideal setup.
- The cook has a great view of what’s going on in his or her kitchen, keeping surprises at a minimum.
- She stays connected with her family as she cooks.
- And she can easily see people coming and going in this most important room.
If your stove is not in this position, don’t despair!
Place a mirror or other reflective surface behind it to serve many of the same purposes and enhance your kitchen Feng Shui.
