Traditionally, fireplaces were considered to be the ideal central element to the living room, but in modern homes, this is unlikely to be possible resulting from space limitations! But it's important to remember that the objective of your living room is being 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 will reflect aspects of the room that visitors might 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 threshold can still have the door visible through the use of mirrors. The best placement to get a mirror is where it can reflect a beautiful view, but once again, we have to adapt this principle to modern cities and homes.
