Generally studio apartments consists of a main room, a kitchen or kitchenette and a bathroom (at times shared with the other occupants of the other studio apartments). The best shape for a such a house is either rectangle or L- shape, provided the ‘L’ isn’t too small.


To analyse your studio apartment, stand at the entrance of your apartment and look around as a visitor, visiting your house. Does it look cluttered? If it does, make immediate changes as free movement of chi is important for good health and fortune. Here are some tips.

Use mirrors to symbolically double the size of the room.

Make sure the entrance is well-lit as chi enters through the main door making the house warm, healthy and welcoming.

Dark corners attract negative chi, so brighten up the area. Hang crystals balls for betterresults.

Ideal interior colours are those that relate to your personal element. For e.g., if you belong to the fire element (red), have a colour done that goes with it.

In a studio apartment where space is limited items like computer, files and papers, children toys and other things should be kept in a cabinet/drawer. If that isn’t possible, at least cover them up.

If the kitchen area is also part of the single room, you may also want to cover it when not in use.

The couch/bed should be placed in an area that feels warm and comfortable, you should be able to see the front door from wherever you sit.

The bed should be a little away from the wall.
