Traditionally, fireplaces were considered to be the right central element to some living room, but in modern homes, this is unlikely to be possible as a result of space limitations! But it's important to remember that the aim of your living room will 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 focus 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 your room that visitors might 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 entrance 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 where it can reflect an attractive view.
