How to Do Feng Shui

Feng Shui involves making sure that each part of the room has at least one pair of items that match color.

Although the mechanic has been simplified from the previous games, there are still three colors that affect feng shui directly: red, green, and yellow.

In the centermost room in your house, decorate the east side with yellow items, west with red items, the south with green items.

On the bottom corners where two colors intersect, you can opt for multi-colored items to follow the guide!

Place Items Over Each Other

You can place small items on top of tables to maximize your Feng Shui. The more Feng Shui items you have, the better your results will be!
