Feng Shui for
Children's Spaces

by Nancilee Wydra

Dear Nancilee,

I read some of your advice on your free Internet site - EfengshuiUSA.com - and it seems that you might be the only one to help me.

I hope you have a solution to an unusual problem. I am considering a retail business location inside a shopping center. The strange part is that the only available location is a triangle-shaped store. The fact that no business ever stays there for too long makes me wonders. Is this location something I should forget altogether, or is it a problem that could be corrected?

One side is solid wall with no openings, and the other two sides are glass from top to bottom. Main entrance is using one of the glass sides.

Thanking you in advance,

Maui, Hawaii


Dear NLB

I am sorry to report that the shape of a triangle with two sides of glass is hardly a satisfactory shape for a store. The customers will not only feel exposed, they will feel pressured. Triangles incite and foster being on guard, hardly a recommended feeling for a retail store.

HOWEVER, in pyramid feng shui, we believe everything can be altered in sufficient ways to mitigate disastrous results. Here are some suggestions:

Cover the glass walls with fabric or other materials that can be cut to allow square openings similar to windows to let in light and provide a feeling of mystery from the outside (who isn’t compelled to peep in a peephole?) and a sense of protection for those inside. Stagger these windows so that from children to NBA players can look into the store at eye level.

Mirror the glass on both sides of the narrowest point, up until there is at least 8 feet of space between them. Mirrors will dispel the constricted feeling and give the illusion of adequate space. Use only a square reception/sales desk on the solid wall to counter the unstable effect of the triangle. Square shapes ground and add to a feeling of security.

All the above suggestions will mitigate the negativity your triangle shaped store exudes and should you have the "right merchandise for this area, you can be successful even in a difficult shaped store.

Best future,
Nancilee Wydra
