Office Feng Shui - The Basic Setup
The main goal of a business is to make a profit (except
non-profit-making organizations), thus it is important to set the
office Feng Shui to maximize its profitability and minimize the
The best Feng Shui setting should be
matched with the bosses' trigrams – CEO’s, CFO’s, etc. To name a
few, the location, the facing, the door orientation, the arrangement
of rooms will all affect the Feng Shui of an office. There are,
however, some basic principles to follow:
1. The main entrance should not be
blocked, nor the visitors can see all the interior parts of the
entrance is the flow of Qi, the ‘source of income', so it should not
be blocked in any way. Some offices, especially small ones, have
their main door blocked in the way that the door cannot be fully
opened. This will prevent the income from coming in.
If the main entrance can see the
entire interior, the office cannot hold its Qi and money cannot stay
long. In fact, it is not 'safe' for people visiting the office
being able to the whole interior as there are some secrets in the
office that should be kept from outsiders.
2. The rooms of CEO and CFO should
not be in the front portion of the office.
3. The doors of the rooms of CEO and
CFO should not be opposite to each other.
4. All the desks should not be
facing the wall. If it is necessary to sit facing a wall (instead
of backing onto a wall), the chair should have a high back and a
dark yellow jacket should be put on the back of the chair to act as
5. Never put your tables and seats
under beams. Move them to a position that is not directly under any
type of beam, including air duct.
6. If your window is facing to two
high-rise buildings close to each other; or to two buildings with a
narrow corridor between them. You should install a blind on that
window and keep it closed all the time.
