Main Entrance

The main entrance of the house is also called the ‘Chi Gate’. The main entrance according to Feng Shui is the prime gateway between the world and your own private world. This is the main point through which the air enters and exists your house. The position of the main entrance to a large extent determines the fortune and misfortune of the entire household. So if your front door has an unrestricted view to the back door then try to block it with curtains or blinds. Have plants and if possible water fountain at the entrance of your house. This will help in keeping all the negative energy away from your house.
Side Entrance
With the differing work timings side entrances are used much more than earlier. One Feng Shui tip is that side entrance should not be used more than the main entrance. If the side entrance is used more than the front door then it is going to affect the energies of the house. source: Wohnideen

Dining room is the place where we sit down after a busy day for a relaxing meal. Try to avoid any type of argument when sitting down for dining, otherwise the atmosphere becomes tense and people tend to eat faster that affects their health. Try to have your dining table round as circle symbolizes heavenly blessings. Another Feng Shui tip to keep in mind is having an even number of chairs in the dining room. Also the decor of the dining room should always be kept simple so that it doesn’t take away the prime attention: food.

Feng Shui gives a lot of importance to the bedroom. It is one of the most private rooms of the individuals of the house, maintaining a peaceful and comfortable ambience in this room is very much required. While placing the bed, make sure that the foot of the bed should not be in the same line as the door. This is because in ancient China, the dead were placed with their feet pointing towards the door so that they can go to heaven comfortably. Also mirrors should never face the bed. This has even been said in Vaastu, the ancient Indian science on architecture. By having mirrors facing the bed, the person can complain of disturbed sleep and bad dreams.
