This has only recently become popular in the west, but is a very irrational idea, and pseudoscience. The very idea some mystical thing will give you bad luck because you set a room up a certain way. Set it up the way it looks good to you and that makes sense - ie saving room, not having stuff in the way. On a side note, why does pseudoscience seem to be so much more popular in the US than valid science?
