Basically, qi (beneficial qi) must not flow in a straight line from the main door (directly) right to the back of the house.
For the kitchen, in addition to the above, itis very inauspicious to have the kitchen door face the main door - especially if utensils such as forts and knifes are vissible from the kitchen towards the main door.
In addition, if there is a wall to screen the back from the front, it must not be a half wall. The wall should preferably cover the entire door.

Yes, a screen or divider can be used. For a divider, it should preferably be `air-tight'. Not pigeon hole type of divider.
For a divider, it can also have - bottom e.g. wooden cabinet and top i.e. glass framed by an outline of wood. This is good if the house is North-South direction. As little light flows thru to allow as much natural light to flow thru the apartment main door.

The hu lu is an authentic Feng Shui tool. But normally, it may not be as effective as a screen or divider. It should normally be used e.g. the entrance to the kitchen rather than say at the back door area. Or at the middle location.

A ba gua mirror MUST never be used inside a house. It should be used facing outwards of the house.

This statement is incorrect when looking at the use of the Ba gua mirror if it is inside of the house.
