Traditionally, fireplaces were considered to be the best central element to the living room, but in modern homes, this is unlikely to be possible due to space limitations! But it's important to remember that the goal of your living room will be inviting to people, to acquire them to feel comfortable and relaxed, and stimulate good conversation. So, even without a central fireplace, making the fireplace some sort of centerpiece will also work well. Mirrors are a wonderful tool to enhance Feng Shui in a living room. They bring light into darker areas and might reflect aspects of the area that visitors may well not otherwise enjoy. Mirrors make rooms look larger (and lighter) and very usefully, they can reflect the door, so any seating that cannot face the doorway can still have the door visible through the use of mirrors. The best placement for any mirror is where it might reflect a beautiful view, but once again, we will need to adapt this principle to modern cities and homes.
