Having good feng shui in the bedroom nourishes and strengthens your health and well-being, which is unquestionably important. Having good feng shui in the bedroom also creates a stronger flow of love energy in your life.
The Bed: Your bed is one of the most important pieces of furniture in your home and a worthwhile investment. You spend at least 6-8 hours there every night, so understanding how to choose the best bed to support your health and well-being is well worth the effort.
Follow the 5 basic feng shui guidelines for your bed.
- Have your bed easily approachable from both sides
- Have two bedside tables (one on each side)
- Avoid having the bed directly in line with the door
- Invest in good quality bedding that feels and looks good.
- Invest in an attractive solid headboard and footboard.
An attractive and balanced bed 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. If the configuration of the room is such that a bed placed in line with the door is the only option, ensure you have a good footboard of reasonable height as well. Make sure your bedroom's air quality isn't stale. Open windows to freshen your bedroom space.
Ideal Feng Shui Bedroom Colors
This step is really easy: Have at least some decor items in skin color tones to create warm, good feng shui in your bedroom. Skin color tones also work best as bedroom wall colors, because they create an energy similar to an embrace. The energy of skin color tones is the earthy, warm, nourishing energy that we all need, especially during nighttime. A good feng shui bedroom decor is a balanced decor that promotes the best flow of energy for restorative sleep, as well as sexual healing.
Feng shui balance of all four elements is important and the fire element is well represented via lighting. Of course, during the daytime, natural light is the number 1 nutrient and is considered medicine for your body. Be sure to let natural light in during the day to purify and revive the energy in your bedroom.
It is important to have an intelligent lighting system in your bedroom, meaning to not limit your lighting to one poor overhead ceiling lamp with depressing light.
If you have to have electrical lights, be smart and do your best by creating light energy that nourishes you and creates a sensual, warm feeling (as well as gives good direct lighting if you like to read in bed). This means you can have at least 2-3 layers of lighting. Best lighting for the bedroom are actually natural candles; they will not only give a warm glow and bring the feng shui fire element into your bedroom (very important!), but also purify the energy in your bedroom. Another wonderful choice would be Himalayan salt lamps; fantastic for their healing glow and energy in the bedroom.
