Bed Placement. Bedroom arrangement is very important in creating a perfect Feng Shui bedroom. A good mattress, a solid headboard and high-quality sheets from natural fibers are also very important in creating harmonious Feng Shui energy. The best position for a bed is one where you can see the door from the bed, but you are not in direct line with the door. Do not place a side of your bed against a wall, such as in a corner of the room. Opt for a headboard, especially solid ones made from wood, providing additional strength and support behind your head.
Art. Choose images with nourishing, happy and beautiful energy. Aim to decorate with positive art that emphasizes life and nature. One of the best places to hang such an image is on the wall opposite your bed so that you see it first thing when you wake up and last thing before you turn off the lights to go to sleep. Avoid using mirrors in your bedroom.
Lighting. Good, appropriate lighting is very important, as light is one of the strongest manifestation of energy. Have several levels of lighting in your bedroom (overhead, table and wall lights), or use a dimmer switch to adjust the energy accordingly. Candles can create a warm and healing atmosphere.
Double Up. In Feng Shui, pairs are thought to promote loving, harmonious energy. In general, try to have two of everything you can. Keep energy balanced around your bed. If you have a nightstand on one side, have an identical one on the other side. Ovals and circles, whether it’s the shape of your nightstand or the type of accessories you select, are better than furniture and accessories with sharp corners or edges.
Energy. Leaving your bedroom door open when you sleep allows positive chi to flow out. Sleeping with the door shut promotes feelings of safety and security, bringing you calm and peace of mind. Keep all bedroom doors closed at night, including closet and bathroom doors, as well as desk and dresser drawers.
Fresh Air. To have good Feng Shui in your bedroom you need to breathe fresh air.Open the windows or use a quality air-purifier to keep the air in your bedroom fresh and full of oxygen. Avoid plants in the bedroom unless your bedroom is fairly large and the plants are located far from the bed.
Clear the Clutter. From a Feng Shui perspective, clutter symbolizes unfinished business and impedes forward progress in life. Keep furnishings on the spare side and clutter as contained as possible to enable chi to flow freely around the room. Avoid using the space under your bed for storage. Televisions, computers, exercise gear, or a workspace in the bedroom are thought to distract from rest, symbolize wakefulness, and take up energy.
