Feng Shui Guide
In Animal Crossing, some items have a special Feng Shui color assigned to them. Proper placement of these items in your house will increase your in-game luck. While an item's Feng Shui color may coincide with its actual (visible) color, it is not a reliable way of determining the Feng Shui color of your piece. To determine an item's Feng Shui color, check its listing in the Master Item List.
So, why should anyone care about Feng Shui? If you play according to the rules of Feng Shui, your luck in the game will improve and it will be more likely for you to receive items and money. It will also increase the frequency of present balloons appearing in your town.
Colors and Types of Luck
For the purpose of this guide, the northern side of the room should be considered the side of the room you face when you enter through the front door. The following diagram indicates proper directional location of each and type of luck associated with each colors:
How Feng Shui Works and Evolves
The diagrams below indicate which parts of your home are under the influence of the various Feng Shui colors. Coordinate Feng Shui-colored items to match the appropriate colored square. These diagrams also indicate the layout changes as you expand your home. Items without an assigned Feng Shui color can be placed anywhere in the room. These items will not alter your luck.
Special Feng Shui items increase your luck no matter where they are in your house. However, if you place these special items in the corner of your house you will receive double the luck normally provided by that item. These special items are listed below.
Effects of Feng Shui
If you increase your Feng Shui score you will notice various increases in monetary benefits in the game. For example, the bags of bells you dig up from random spots will be larger, shiny spots will yield more money and will be able to get more bags by hitting red stones.
Increasing your orange, green, and yellow Feng Shui score will increase your luck in collecting items. Villagers will be more likely to reward you with furniture and Redd will carry more exclusive items.
Receiving the Benefits of Feng Shui
Areas of the room that are left blank do not give Feng Shui benefits for any specific colored items.
Feng Shui benefits can be earned for item placement on all levels of your home.
