When Feng Shui Doesn't Work...

By Roger Hazard

Feng Shui

Roger,

How important is feng shui to you? What if you end up with a blue kitchen because of its location, yet blue is an unappetizing color?

Also, where do you buy all those huge candles for the show on your budget? I've only seen those sizes at higher end stores.

Jen,

Feng Shui can provide helpful guidance in certain cases, but it is not as important to me as function and comfort. As for blue kitchens, I have used the color in many kitchens but only on walls and never as a main course.

I usually buy the large candles at IKEA. Don't forget to check discount stores like Tuesday Morning.

Functionality: No Mud Room? Create an Organization Station
The kitchen is the point of entry for most homes. For those of us without mudrooms, this means the kitchen becomes the default dumping ground for jackets, shoes, hats, book bags, and purses. If you don't have space to create a mudroom or closet, a custom organization station can be a highly functional, unobtrusive alternative.
