Traditionally, fireplaces were considered to be the ideal central element to the living room, but in modern homes, this is unlikely to be possible because of space limitations! But it's important to remember that the goal of your living room is usually to be inviting to people, to have 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 can reflect aspects of the bedroom that visitors may not otherwise enjoy. Mirrors make rooms look larger (and lighter) and very usefully, they could reflect the door, so any seating that cannot face the threshold can still have the door visible through the use of mirrors. The best placement for the mirror is where it could possibly reflect a beautiful view, but once again, we need to adapt this principle to modern homes and cities.
