Traditionally, fireplaces were considered to be the perfect central element to some living room, but in modern homes, this is unlikely to be possible resulting from space limitations! But it's important to remember that the intention of your living room is usually to 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 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 might reflect aspects of the space that visitors may well not otherwise enjoy. Mirrors make rooms look larger (and lighter) and very usefully, they are able to reflect the door, so any seating that cannot face the doorway can still have the door visible through the use of mirrors. Just as before, we need to adapt this principle to modern cities and homes, even though the best placement for a mirror is where it can reflect a lovely view.
