Traditionally, fireplaces were considered to be the best central element into a living room, but in modern homes, this is unlikely to be possible due to space limitations! But it's important to remember that the intention of your living room is being inviting to people, to get them to feel comfortable and relaxed, and stimulate good conversation. So, even without a central fireplace, making the fireplace some sort of center of attention 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 space that visitors might not otherwise enjoy. Mirrors make rooms look larger (and lighter) and very usefully, they will reflect the door, so any seating that cannot face the threshold can still have the door visible through the use of mirrors. Again, we need to adapt this principle to modern cities and homes, even though the best placement for a mirror is the place it can reflect a beautiful view.
