Traditionally, fireplaces were considered to be the ideal 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 objective of your living room will be inviting to people, to obtain 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 well 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. Just as before, 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 wonderful view.
