What’s Cooking?


In Feng Shui, the stove is considered one of the most influential objects in a home. They are synonymous with wealth, and the more the stove is in full operation, the more opportunity for wealth.

Most important-Keep it clean!

But, as everything in Feng Shui, it’s not that simple. It is best to “cook on all burners“ -use all of your burners.

The stove or range should be operational/ not broken.

It’s best not to walk into the kitchen and see the stove directly across from the door.

Your range/stove should not be next to the sink or directly across from the sink. If it is, you need wood element between them.

Depending on who you consult, (in my opinion) it is best to have the stove against a wall rather than on an island.

Here is my stove: I love it ❤️!

Floyd and Stove Position


We have a kitchen!!!!!

Yes, a rough stage, but we can cook, wash dishes and we have counters… plywood until the soapstone gets put in, but it’s such progress.

The centerpiece of our kitchen is a fully refurbished O’Keefe and Merritt range, who I’ve not named yet… Ursula, Loretta…

Anyway, stove placement is one of the majors for the inside of the home. Ours faces North – Northwest, which is a very auspicious direction for me and Tom, who are western Gua 8s. It’s complicated, but one universal no-no for stoves is if they are directly opposite the sink. Noooooo-that’s exactly our setup. The cure for this is to place wood between the two-in our case a really, really, really narrow island or something that.
