How To Select Mirrors With Feng Shui In Mind

Home Stager with Feng Shui Manhattan Long Island #888

When it comes time to selecting mirrors for your home, consider these quick general guidelines from a feng shui perspective. 

  • Consider rounded or curved designed mirror frames when possible.

Why? This relates to a smoother and more inviting flow of energy within your home. If you have a square or rectangular, that is just fine. Then keep in mind the other suggestions below. 

  • Consider purchasing mirrors that are NOT fractured. Instead, select mirrors that offer a SOLID reflective surface. 

Why? This offers less confusion when glancing into the mirror. 

  • Consider the size of the mirror's diameter. Surfaces that allow you to see your entire head, shoulders and chest are ideal. 

 Why? This is called "capturing your aura." In Feng Shui its important to be able to see the whole you, vs seeing yourself though a fractionated surface for literal, energetic and psychological purposes.

Interesting Laura.  I've looked at size but not considered curved and rounded when selecting. Mirrors are so important in homes.  Thanks for the information.

Well, I'm halfway there...our mirrors are rectangular instead of round but they are large enough to capture the aura. I may have some shopping to do!

Laura, hmmmmm.  I had a huge rectangular framed mirror slip off of my dining room wall behind a credenza.  Wrong shape and a frame.  Oops!

Who knew? I tend to like sharp edges which is why my aura is definitely causing George and I to disagree on who should be cleaning the mirror when they leave fingerprints!

I've been a big fan of Feng Shui for years and years. Did my own research, and mirrors are SO important in reflecting space, suggesting light where there isn't much...and yet, we can always learn something new about it, as you've shown us.
