Best Feng Shui colors for kitchen
Ready to choose your best feng shui kitchen colors? Our easy feng shui guide to kitchen color is here to help!
Here’s where feng shui kitchen color guidelines can really help. Even though this is a complex subject, I will make it easy for you to choose the absolutely best kitchen color!
There are two ways of defining the feng shui bagua which often leads to a lot of confusion. Not when you are with me, though!
One of the secrets to feng shui success is to choose one bagua style and stick with it, instead of chaotically trying to apply both.
So, you either work with the classical, also called traditional feng shui bagua or you work with the BTB/Western feng shui bagua. Many feng shui cures are identical to both schools, and this certainly applies to best feng shui color choices, too.
Here I would like to give you a quick shortcut to best colors for your kitchen no matter which bagua school you decide to apply.
If you want instant gratification :) you can just estimate the location of your kitchen, and later on take some time to define the feng shui energy map of your home. No matter which bagua you choose to work with – Classical or Western – this guide has info for both.
Here comes your easy feng shui guide to best kitchen colors.
Feng shui bagua area: Fame & Reputation
Western bagua location: center top
This is one of the most auspicious kitchen locations in feng shui as it works very well with the Fire feng shui element energy of the area.
Colors to avoid (in big proportions) in a South area kitchen are blue and black.
Western bagua location: top right
If you have a kitchen in the Southwest area, you are also in luck! Fire element is nourishing for the Earth element of this bagua area (Love & Marriage), so you can go also go wild with fiery colors if you so desire – from bright red to yellow to orange and purple (even pink!).
Feng shui bagua area: Children & Creativity
Western bagua location: mid right
Excellent for a West area kitchen are fresh whites, clean grays and warm earthy tones.
Western bagua location: lower center
If you have a kitchen in the North area, you will have to juggle the fine art of feng shui color balancing – you want to keep the Water element of this area happy by providing the best colors and decor for it – blue, black, gray and white; at the same time you want to keep the fire energy of the kitchen strong and healthy.

A kitchen in the Northeast area is as easy to work with as a kitchen in Southwest area, as they both share the same Earth element. So, feel free to have as many fiery colors as you want – from strong firetruck red to yummy yellow and, of course, bring an abundance of Earth element decor and colors.
Avoid too much black, blue, as well as white and gray colors.
Western bagua location: mid left
A bit of care is good for an East area kitchen, just because too much Fire or Metal element colors can damage the Wood element energy of this bagua area. So, try to avoid too many Fire element colors and decor items, instead focusing on the Earth feng shui element.
Green and brown colors are excellent for the East area kitchen, and so are the light blue accents. Avoid a predominantly white color kitchen in the East.
Western bagua location: top left
A Southeast area kitchen requires the same attention as the one in the East as they both share the same element – Wood. So, add as many Wood element decor items and colors as your heart desires, bring touches of light blue color and avoid too many red accents or a predominantly stark white color in your Southeast kitchen.
Display an abundance of fruits and vegetables, as well as fresh herbs or flowers as this is your money area kitchen! In the language of feng shui energy, you have to express abundance to attract abundance.
Western bagua location: center
Decorate it with either Fire or Earth element colors and try to limit Metal element (white and gray) and Water element (blue and black) colors. Here is the easy feng shui color wheel that can help you with expressing feng shui elements in many colors.
