I am very curious about what feng shui has to say about roomdimensions. The fs-ruler is too short, and I can't think of any reasonable way to extend it. I read about one architect here in Sweden whos favourite room dimension was 3.6m x 3.6m; but the *feeling* I get of that dimension (when I test it) is that it is very oldfashioned and boring.

At the "micro level" of Feng Shui, in the past, where Chinese burial was very important to the rich and royalty: They (officials) spare no expense in getting the proper measurements correct and they use the Chinese ruler to measure everything " correctly " i.e. the curved frontage of the burial site, the tombstones have good Feng Shui measurements.

Even recent Feng Shui authors such as Lillian Too do mention that she `purposely' got the correct dimensions for her books.

For those interested in antique Chinese furniture, you can learn about proper feng shui dimensions e.g. if you have the opportunity to measure antique Chinese altar tables, these have " perfect " Feng Shui dimensions.

For those who have the opportunity to be `near' to any furniture shops selling geniune Chinese furniture e.g. chairs, table, cabinets, you can at your free time, measure these. I am sure, most of them will meet the height / width / depth of Feng Shui good dimensions.

Here in Singapore, we have many races and the " undocumented " fact was that all Housing Board Flat entrance doors are " Feng Shui correct. This fact is not made known because of the various religious beliefs (but Feng Shui is definitely not a religion thou). Anyway, I know that if I mention this, no one will cause a *riot* sparked from this forum as everyone would want "Prosperity".

Sorry about this long diversion. There is another situation, where one of my engineer friends, got a table made exactly to his "direction". He feels really comfortable `using' it. But if someone else were to `use' the table, it would be `awful'.

Therefore the truth of the matter is akin to the saying " one man's meat is another man's poison ".

I will certainly do more research into this area and when I know more, will certainly share it with everyone here:)
