Beware of beams overhead; they cause unnecessary stress. Beams hidden under false ceilings are as bad. A door directly ahead of you is not auspicious. Doors and windows, even behind the table, invite betrayal. Sit against a solid wall.
Office buildings that face the North, North-east, or North-west are also considered very prosperous, as these directions are extremely auspicious: they always attract good luck and positive energies.
Avoid using an oval-shaped dining table, as it is inauspicious. The dining table should not be visible from the main door. A curtain or a false partition can be used as a screen.
Sharp utensils such as knives and scissors should be kept covered at all times. Displaying these or leaving them out in the open can give rise to bad or unpleasant relationships with family and friends. Similarly, pickles should also be kept in a covered place as an open display can create sourness in relationships.
Installing a large mirror on the eastern wall of the dining room so that it reflects the fruit and food laid out on the table has a multiplying effect. This brings in prosperity.
