Mirrors are an incredibly important tool in feng shui. To derive maximum benefits out of mirrors, they should be placed correctly according to feng shui rules. The right placement of mirrors using feng shui methodology can correct almost any problem.

On the other hand, a mirror when placed at a wrong location can bring bad luck and affect the quality of life.

Mirrors are helpful because they reflect energy in the form of light. Mirrors also reflect the positive energy of beautiful objects.

Depending on how you use them, mirrors can activate and deflect different energies and let you multiply different elements around your house. One example of that would be to hang a mirror where it reflects a pretty view, thus multiplying the view.


The kitchen is considered to be that area of house, which is related to wealth and success.

So, placing a mirror near the kitchen will double the image of burner, hence creating more wealth. You can also place it behind the stove in the kitchen.

Mirrors can also be a great corrector in the bathroom. It often happens that good luck goes out when the door of the bathroom is open.

To correct it you can place a big mirror outside or inside the door. It will then not allow the negative energy from entering the house through the bathroom.

House shape

The shape of most houses is either square or rectangular.

The cut out corners of the house represent the missing areas of the house.

You can hence create a missing room or place by adding a large mirror on a wall that would lead to the missing place of the house.


The bedroom is one of the most controversial places where mirror is to be kept.

Ideally, it should be avoided here, but one of the biggest benefits of having a mirror in your bedroom is for multiplying of positive energy that comes into the room in the form of sunlight.

The mirror of the bedroom should not reflect your bed as it has a negative impact on your relationship.

A mirror placed on the corner of the bed can affect your health and also your night’s sleep.

It is not necessary to have a mirror in the bedroom but if it is still required then you can have it on the back of the wardrobe’s door.

It is because it would then not reflect anything when not in use.

You can also use a fabric to cover your mirror while you are sleeping.


A mirror when reflects through a window can generate good amount of positive energy throughout your room.

Mirrors can be used to light up a dark space where negative energy is in abundance.

If you have a room in your house that is above a busy area then you can place the mirror on the floor facing down to prevent the negative energy from below, enter your space.

Be positive

Make sure that whatever your mirror reflects is positive. So, you need to pay attention on what is getting reflected.

Mirrors expand and double whatever they reflect and so remember to remove all the clutter from their path.

If your mirror is reflecting a photo of you and your family having a great time on vacation, it's doubling the joy in that area of your home.

Bad effects

Remember never to use broken mirrors as they affect the energy of your house. All mirrors should be framed in wood or metal. Unframed mirrors have sharp edges, which create negative energy that is bad for health and almost everything else.

Bright & clean

As with all things in Feng Shui, be sure to keep your mirrors bright and clean. Make sure they are placed at head height and if they are being used as minor remedies, make sure they are small and discreet. It is also possible to use trigram mirrors outside the home.

These are essential for deflecting negative chi away from the home.
