As it is commonly known, feng shui can create a balance of energy around you through your room arrangement. If you want to maximise the positive energy in your restaurant, here are 5 requirements for good feng shui, presented by Knorr World Cuisine.
Have an open space at the building entrance
There should be open space in front of the building, ideally featuring a park or pool. It’s not recommended to have an empty space behind the building.
Lay out the interior in basic forms
The recommended shapes are squares, circles, or rectangles. Each shape provides its own feng shui properties, so remember to do a little research before deciding which ones to use. Avoid irregular or triangular forms as they can create psychological pressure.
Having too many partitions in a room will stagnate the flow of positive energy. Avoid having too much empty space as well, especially near the entrance, in order to retain the flow of positive energy.
Decorate the room with plants
A plant as a living organism draws positive energy. Place it at the entrance to improve the air quality inside the room. Besides providing good feng shui, plants can also remove airborne contaminants, act as natural humidifiers and soothe guests with their natural aesthetic beauty.
Cashier placed in the appropriate location
Your cashier should be located on the right side of the restaurant from the inside looking out, and they should have a strong, solid wall behind them. This position is recommended because it symbolises stability in cash flow of a restaurant.
