Mirrors are widely used in feng shui for enhancing the positive energy in a space. That said, there are a few things you need to consider when it comes to placing them so you can maintain that good qi.

And now that you know the spots where you shouldn't place mirrors, here are some pointers for how you should dislplay them, according to feng shui practitioner Jemma of Home Heart Feng Shui:

Hang them at the right height.

"When looking in the mirror you don't want to have to stand on your toes and feel awkward or uncomfortable—your mirror should welcome you into it," Jemma says. Avoid hanging it so high that you risk "cutting off someone's head" with it, which could reduce its positive energy instead of enhancing it.

Place them in the entry way.

Mirrors in the entry way are good feng shui because it can brighten and open up the space. But, Jemma notes, "Just make sure that it's not placed directly opposite the front door otherwise all that positive energy entering the home can bounce right back out!"

Add one to your home office.

If the layout of your working space doesn't allow you to directly face the entrance (which is good feng shui), using a mirror to reflect the door instead can give you energy-enhancing perks instead.

Always have them reflect nice things.

"Mirrors should always reflect something nice because they multiply the energy of whatever they reflect," explains Jemma. You can opt to have it reflect artwork, flowers, or the view from your window, but never items like a garbage can or any kind of clutter.

Don't hesitate to cover your closet in them.

Placing mirrors in the bedroom isn't advisable in feng shui since they tend to bounce energy around the room. However, Jemma says you can go all out with them in your closet without any issue!
