Transcript:Feng Shui Tips for the KitchenHi, I'm Rodika Tchi for About.com Home and Garden. In feng shui, your kitchen is considered to be one of the most important areas of your home.

Feng Shui and the Kitchen TriangleFeng shui agrees with the proper interior design placement of the so-called kitchen triangle - the oven, sink and fridge - because this provides for the best balance between two conflicting elements: fire and water.
Good Kitchen Feng Shui ColorsAny shade of yellow is excellent for the kitchen because it's a good color for digestion. Red, brown, and white are also good choices for the kitchen. Try to avoid a strong presence of water colors such as blue or black because they put down the fire feng shui element.
Clutter and Kitchen Feng ShuiKeeping your kitchen clean and clutter-free is a necessary step for good feng shui. This applies both to areas that you can see right away, such as your countertops, as well as the ones that are usually hidden.
Feng Shui Kitchen DecorPlace a bowl of fruit or a vase of flowers on your kitchen table. Display some of your utensils, plates, or cookbooks to create a nourishing and welcoming feeling in your body.
