All set to welcome the Year of the Dog this Friday? You’ve probably tried sprucing up your home using these Feng Shui Tips. But after the celebrations are over, perhaps you’d like to do some serious Feng Shui improvements for the long run. Why not do it using a Bagua Map?

This basic, yet most important Feng Shui tool is believed to hold the key to improving the flow of good energy into your home. Here is what a typical Bagua Map looks like:

When laid onto your house’s floor plan, you can see what sector falls on each area of your house. On another note, you can also see which sectors are missing in your house (like, for example, if the Wealth sector falls on an empty spot that doesn’t have a room—this usually happens if your floor plan is irregular).
