Feng Shui Your Bed For a Better Sleep

How to properly place and dress the bed according to Feng Shui.

 

This is about energies. Feng Shui decoration focuses on finding the best position for the objects to allow the positive energy to flow around the room. This is particularly important in the bedroom, as your bed is the most important Feng Shui piece of furniture in your entire life. This might sound as a very strong Feng Shui statement, but it’s true. Think of it, your bed is the only place in your home, where you spend 5-7 hours uninterrupted – This adds up to a very long time!

Your bed is the only piece of furniture that has the most intimate connection to your personal energy. Every element of your bed either supports or weakens your energy – from the design and material of your bed frame to the quality of your mattress.

The role of your bed and your bedroom in relation to your health, your well-being, as well as the quality of your relationships should not be overestimated. For this reason here there are five rules for positioning the bed and create a harmonious and happy room:

Bed Placement

In Feng Shui it’s absolutely forbidden to place the bed directly in front of the door or under the window. Ideally, your headboard should be attached to the bedroom wall that is farthest from the door. Make sure also not to have a mirror facing your bed – according to the laws of this Chinese superstition, when that happens our vital energy will be traveling all night.

Accessibility

Having grounding and balanced energy on both sides of the bed is very important for a good feng shui bed placement. This means that is very important to be able to access the bed on both sides -avoid placing the bed against a wall, as this will restrict the flow of the energy.

Good Headboard

The absence of a headboard is according to this ancient oriental art synonymous of instability and lack of security. For this reason, beds with solid headboards are preferable – try to opt for headboards made from wood, or the upholstered ones, as they have a very good combination of solid, but also gentle and supporting Feng Shui energy for you and your bedroom.

Decor

If you have hanging objects on the head of the bed, remove them. In Feng Shui this type of elements have no place. Decorate this wall with objects not too heavy, such as a small wall lamp. Also be sure there are no sharp angles pointing at you while you sleep. Remove side table with sharp corners and prefer those with rounded angles.

Colours

Best choosing bedding (sheets, pillowcases, blankets, etc.) in soft colours and pastels hues, as these convey tranquility and promote a good night sleep. In addition, try to opt for natural fabrics rather than synthetic ones.
