Traditionally, fireplaces were considered to be the optimal 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 aim of your living room is going 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 center point will also work well. Mirrors are a wonderful tool to enhance Feng Shui in a living room. They bring light into darker areas and will reflect aspects of the area that visitors may not otherwise enjoy. Mirrors make rooms look larger (and lighter) and very usefully, they may reflect the door, so any seating that cannot face the entrance can still have the door visible through the use of mirrors. The best placement to get a mirror is where it could reflect a beautiful view, but once again, we must adapt this principle to modern homes and cities.
