Feng Shui is all about balance, stability and energy flow. It’s a known fact that the way we arrange furniture and decor in our home affects our well being. That’s why it’s important to follow a few guidelines in order to achieve a positive outcome. Keep in mind that the bedroom is the place where you relax and rest the most.
1. Bed Placement
The bed is the most important piece of furniture in your bedroom. The first step is to place your bed against a wall so that it gives you support and a sense of security. When choosing the best wall for your bed position, avoid positioning it in line with the door or on the same wall with the door.
Choose a sturdy, strong headboard that will support your bed. This will create a protective energy around the bed, increasing your comfort and helping you get a better rest.
3. Two Nightstands
Having two nightstands helps with balancing the energies and it also creates a visual balance. Make sure you have enough space to walk around on each side of the bed, that way the energy will also flow smoothly.
4. FENG SHui Colors
The recommended Feng Shui color palette for the bedroom is composed of nude tones and earthy shades. Those are all soothing and calming colors that will help you relax and will create a harmonious space. Avoid using active colors like red and orange because they can energize you too much.
5. Correct Lighting
Lighting is a very important part in every interior. For a relaxing atmosphere use dimmers on all your bedroom lights. This way you’ll be able to control the light intensity in your relaxing space. Use warm light sources and make sure the space is evenly lit. You can add candles for a nice decor and warmth.
A Feng Shui rule says that seeing yourself in a mirror while sleeping will disrupt your energy and you won’t be able to get a good rest. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t place mirrors in your bedroom, just be aware of the mirror’s position and the way it reflects its surroundings.
Try not to keep electronic equipment like TV, computers or exercise machines in your bedroom. The good Feng Shui balanced energy is damaged by the EMFs (electromagnetic fields) these electronics produce. If it’s not possible to get rid of the electronics in your bedroom, try to, at least, hide them at night.
8. Air flow
Make a habit of opening your windows regularly to allow fresh air to enter your bedroom. You should open your windows during the early morning hours and keep all doors and windows closed while sleeping to maintain all the good energy inside.
