Getting to the "Heart" of the Matter
Source : Creative Home X
Date : 1 May 2012
by Joey Yap

The placement of the stove is a crucial factor. A wrongly placed stove may activate negative Qi that can affect the entire household, and brings about health issues related to the digestive system, emotions and temperaments to its occupants. So, where should you place it in your kitchen?

Kitchen islands are common in a number of spacious modern kitchens today. Installing a stove there - though it may look fancy as what you see in cooking shows - is an absolute no-no in Feng shui. An island stove looks suspended in the middle of the kitchen with no solid support - like a heart exposed, unprotected. Ideally, the stove should be installed against solid walls.

The stove is a Yin feature, which complements the Yang element of the Main door. The key word here is "stability", as in the stove is not exposed to Qi coming from all directions, and thus, its reason for being located against a solid wall. The same concept applies to portable stoves as well.

Another common feature in most modern kitchens today is the kitchen exhaust fan, which sits overhead the stove. Although it serves the purpose of capturing the smoke and oil mist in the air when you cook, it is not complementary, Feng Shui wise. If this feature is unavoidable, you may need to have it reinstalled a bit to the side instead.

The stove should not be placed direct across from the sink, a Water element. This is a case of Fire and Water elements clashing, which causes disharmony in the household when they do. However, this only applies if the stove is opposite the sink in a straight line. Otherwise, it is fine. And wherever possible, ensure the sink and the stove are not placed side-by-side with each other. There should at least be a two-foot gap in between if such is the case. Similarly, the stove should not be aligned with the kitchen door as well.

Other than stove placement, you must also pay attention to where the stove knobs are facing or pointing. These should be aligned with the owner's or the breadwinner's favorable direction according to his or her Life Gua.

Keep in mind that if you want to harness the best Feng Shui for the stove, ensure you make way for a small, spacious Bright Hall infront of it. Better yet, the most ideal kitchen Feng Shui situation is to have a mountain or hill right outside the kitchen.
