Feng Shui is an old Chinese practice where furniture and items are arranged in a certain way to increase the flow of positive energy throughout a house. This supposedly brings good health and fortune to the members of the household.

In the Animal Crossing series, the guidelines to Feng Shui are fairly easy. Furniture must have certain properties to contribute to Feng Shui, and they must be arranged properly.

There are a few lucky items that contribute to Feng Shui without requiring specific placement, but for the most part, location is key. A player can attain a total of 184 points (63+3+118=184, where 63 is the amount of points attainable by placing special lucky items in Feng Shui squares [21*3], where 3 is the amount of points attainable by placing lucky items in the middle of the room, and where 118 is the highest possible value of the remaining squares after placing special lucky items [(80-21)*2]). Please note that Feng Shui only applies to the main room of your house. Items placed in other rooms will not affect your luck.

High amounts of Feng Shui will increase your chances of getting 8,000 Bells from a money rock (or the maximum amount of ores if that occurs). If you want to receive 8,000 Bells from a Money Rock, either dig one hole behind you and one to the left or right (to prevent you from bouncing back) OR dig three holes behind you (this method only works for Animal Crossing: in this version you can get 21,000 odd Bells from a Money Rock). Also make sure no other objects (including flowers) occupy any of the 3x3 squares around the rock.

Principles of Feng Shui

Main article: Wikipedia:Feng Shui


Every object has two colors associated with them (the major colors in how they look). For items that have only one major color, the "two" colors are the same (see examples). However, the only colors that contribute to Feng Shui are red, green, and yellow


  • Red Armchair: This is pretty much all red. Its two colors are Red/Red.
  • Mushroom Table: This is red and white. Its two colors are Red/White. White does not contribute to Feng Shui, so for our discussion here, the mushroom table is simply Red.
  • Watermelon Table: This has a green skin and red flesh. Its two colors are Red/Green (order doesn't matter).


First, the only tiles in the room that have an impact on Feng Shui are the two tiles closest to the right, bottom, and left walls. For the first room you have, that covers the whole room. Once you upgrade, however, you'll notice that you have non-Feng Shui tiles in the center and top parts of the room.

Each tile that has Feng Shui has two colors associated with it. The left wall's tiles are Yellow/Yellow, the bottom wall's tiles are Green/Green, and the right wall's tiles are Red/Red. In the corners where they overlap, the tiles have one of each color. (The diagrams below illustrate this.)


In Feng Shui (both real and in game), placement is everything.

The key is to match the item's colors to the tile's colors as best as possible. If an item has only one color, it will only match once; if an item has two colors, then you want to place it so that it matches twice. Let's use the items we described above.


  • Red Armchair: Red/Red. This is best placed on the right side, at least three tiles from the bottom, so that it sits in a Red/Red tile. Since two colors match, it gets two Feng Shui points. If you were to place it in a Red/Green tile, only one color would match, and it would get only one Feng Shui point.

  • Mushroom Table: Red. This only has one color. It can be placed in any tile that has red in it, and will always only get one Feng Shui point, even if the tile is Red/Red (since it has only one color match).

  • Watermelon Table: Red/Green. This is best placed in the bottom right corner, where the tiles are also Red/Green. Since two colors match, it gets two Feng Shui points. If you place it in either a Green/Green, Red/Red, or Yellow/Green tile, it would get only one Feng Shui point.

Note: Tables and items on them that are in a Feng Shui tile both count for points. Getting good tables is part of the strategy.

Lucky items

Some items are considered lucky and add 1 point for being anywhere in the room. A few items, such as the Lucky Gold Cat, both have Feng Shui colors and are also lucky. The Lucky Gold Cat, Bug Trophy, Fish Trophy and Flower Trophy are Yellow/Yellow, so if you place them on Yellow/Yellow tiles, they will count for three points each! The list of lucky items are as follows:

  • Arwing
  • Big Festive Tree (x2)
  • Birthday Cake
  • Bug Trophy (x3)
  • Dracaena (x2)
  • Fish Trophy (x3)
  • Flower Trophy (x3)**
  • Garden Gnome (x2)

  • **This trophy is not in Animal Crossing:New Leaf, it was only in Animal Crossing: Wild World. However the replacement item for New Leaf may be the Gold HHA Trophy but there is no current evidence to support this theory.
