What do you want to achieve?
What is your vital goal?A kitchen and a living room or a dining room are spaces that generate active uses, in feng shui they are called YANG. They are places with movement and activity, either in the preparation of the dishes in the kitchen, the tablecloths of the dining room or conversations on the sofa in the living room. These uses connect with YANG objectives, which are all those related to the activity of people, that is, material, economic, prosperity, etc.
Therefore, the kitchen and living room uses are closely related. Despite this, you always have to take into account what each space offers.
Your house is the reflection of Si mism @. Hence, the importance of determining beforehand if the place where the kitchen and the living room are located is the best sector of the house to promote «active» objectives.
Once you choose the location of the kitchen, the next step is to study the space well and see its possibilities.
The design of an open kitchen must be part of the whole space. It is essential to think globally and not unitarily, or partially so that everything is integrated and avoid a patched space, with residual areas, a consequence of the absence of design and strategy. But also, a kitchen integrated in another space must comply with basic requirements of environmental quality and functionality so that the environment is pleasant and makes people feel good.
