Feng Shui Tips for the Home Office

See Who Enters

Be sure to place your desk in a command position, meaning not directly in front of the door but facing it, and not facing a wall or window. The farthest corner from the door is best, so that you can see everything in the room. Though if you’re living in tight quarters, that may not be possible. If you have to put your desk against the wall, Lauher suggests putting a larger mirror in front of you. "That does two things: You can see behind you and it makes you feel like you can move forward and you’re not getting stuck." And positioning yourself so that you can see who is entering your office allows you to be prepared for whatever business comes your way.
