Plants in front of the windows provide a remedy, on top of that protect against outside influences and let the view remain in the personal area. If possible, the doors should not face a window. If this is still the case, the & quot; energy traversal & quot; defused or redirected by means of plants, lamps, mobiles or other accessories. How and where you sit is also crucial. Optimal is a positioning of sofas and armchairs in the form of a square or a rectangle. An arrangement around a table with a beautiful bouquet of flowers or a fireplace also has a positive effect. If, on the other hand, all the seats are facing the TV, it dominates the room and communication can be difficult. How to find the right place for the cabinets?

If you make out toilet, front door or staircase in it, it makes sense to look for another place for the cabinet.
