General Feng Shui Wealth Principles to Use in Your Home
When you arrange your home with the principles of Feng Shui you are sending the universe a conscious message of material and spiritual abundance and well being.
Have Your Home Uncluttered
Make sure your home is uncluttered and has as much natural light as possible. Have items of abundance around the home like a money plant (more on wealth attracting object below).
Door’s Are Where Opportunities Enter
Do not have any area where your back is facing a door. Whether it’s the bedroom, living room or office.
The door represents where wealth and opportunities flow into your life. You want to face opportunity and not turn your back on it and block it.
Facing a window is not the same, look at it this way, when someone wants to meet you they come through the door, not the window.
Colours for Feng Shui Wealth
Colours that are associated with wealth are purple, green, blue and gold.
The colour purple is the colour that most strongly associated with wealth and prosperity in Feng Shui.
Have this colour in abundance around most of your home and in moderation in the bedroom.
Try purple curtains, ornaments or furniture.
Green signifies abundance, so have plenty of greens around.
Gold is the colour of the sun and is infused with abundance and life giving energy, it is used in Feng Shui to attract wealth and growth.
Use gold in your wealth corner (see below), you can use ornaments and art with gold colours.
For Feng Blue represents the element of water and symbolises abundance and flow, like the ocean. Combine blue with white or beige to soften and control it’s energy, especially in the kitchen.
What is a Feng Shui Wealth Corner and How to Find it in Your Home
The wealth and prosperity corner is a section (gua) of the Bagua map. The Bagua map is a map of your home and how each area relates to certain parts of your life, it see’s your home as a reflection of your life.
The wealth corner (also known as a money corner) of your home represents wealth and prosperity and abundance.

Here is a video explaining the different ways to locate your money corner:
When you have located your wealth corner:
Make sure it is not cluttered.
It is well lit, with as much natural light as possible.
There are objects that you can use and arrange in your wealth corner to make sure chi energy flows to give your life abundance (more on these objects below).
Specific Areas of Your Home and Feng Shui Wealth
Front Door and Entrance
In Feng Shui, the front door is where the chi enters, which means it’s where wealth and good fortune enter.
The front door is the main entrance to your home, not necessarily the one you use the most to enter the house.
Your Front Door Colour
Traditionally the front door colour to attract wealth is red. However any colour that feels right to you is good. For instance the colour brown signifies stability, if this speaks to you then this colour is fine.
Make Sure the Entrance is Welcoming.
Place a welcome mat at the entrance, make sure it’s clean and the entrance has welcoming lighting.
Inside the Front Door
It should be clutter free as you enter just inside the front door. You can have a water feature of some kind or artwork that signifies wealth and abundance to you.
Your Kitchen and Feng Shui Wealth
In Feng Shui the stove represents wealth and prosperity.
To allow the chi energy to flow abundantly:
Use all four burners and not limit yourself to one or two.
Keep your stove immaculate.
Use the stove daily to create and abundance energy.
The kitchen represents fire energy, so when you decorate use plenty of red colours, minimize the colour blue as it is a water colour, and water dampens the fire energy.
Cutlery and Plates
Keep knifes hidden as they contain a sharp energy. Throw away chipped plates and do not leave empty pans on the stove, as it signifies lack of abundance.
Arrange Your Bedroom to Wire Your Subconscious for Feng Shui Wealth
The bedroom is not just associated with romantic love in Feng Shui but also wealth and abundance, as it is the place where you sleep and let your subconscious mind weave it’s magic. (See How to Use Bedroom Feng Shui to Attract Love and Intimacy Into your Life, if you want to increase love in your life.)
Make sure your bed is in a position where you can see the door, the door should never be behind you when you sleep. This will promote a natural flow of chi.
The bedroom should be uncluttered and allow natural light as much as possible, so you can enjoy the sunlight and wake up with the rhythms of nature.
Careful Where You Place Mirrors
Do not have a mirror that faces directly at the bed. It will drain your energy.
