The Feng Shui of windows

Windows are either opened on the wall or on the roof. Their function is for ventilation and natural lighting. Therefore, in Feng Shui, their importance is just second to the main door, also act as the passage of "qi" (气),  and viewed as the "eyes" (眼) of the house.

Some Feng Shui considerations:
  • It is inauspicious if you can see from your window any building of worship (temple, church, mosque, ...), hospital/clinic, police station, fire department, prison, funeral place, graveyard, or garbage dump.
  • It is inauspicious if you can see from your window any sharp corner or sharp edge or sharp object that is pointing towards your direction.
  • It is inauspicious for a window to face with wire pole, water tower, chimney, or similar structure. That will affect the wealth, health and career to the person who stay in the room with such window(s).
  • It is inauspicious for a window to direct face with another window or door at a close distance.
  • It is inauspicious if a window view is blocked by building, wall or mountain right in front of it.
  • The best window type is open outwards from side. It is discouraged to have window that open inwards.
  • It is discouraged to have top hung or bottom hung window, especially if the window is large. Top hung window is only suitable for toilet ventilation.
  • Having too much windows will disturb the "qi" inside the room.
  • Having too little windows will not be able to collect "qi" for the house.
  • Avoid having triangular or trapezoidal shape windows.
