The focal and main point of your bedroom is undoubtedly bed. So, to make a decision where to place it right within the borders of the room is most common challenge one faces when setting up home. The challenge becomes even more exciting if you are setting up your home with the right feng shui energy flows. Let the FurnitureCart team help you with a few valuable advice.
You may know that you should not align the bed with the door. What does it actually mean? When your feet are in line with the door, you simply lose your energy at night, and as the classic feng shui says, your personal energy gets weaker. Doors are believed to be the connectors, and through the doors the energies are pulled from one area to another. So, if your feet are pointing at any door in room, either the main one, or the bathroom door and even balcony door, it is high time to cure the energy loss and do something with the bed position.
The first remedy for bedroom is to move the bed off that line. Still, if it’s impossible, another solution is to block the leak of energy by a tall and solid footboard. If you love your platform bed, and it has no or low footboard, there is another way to solve it: place a piece of furniture between the bed and the door. An upholstered bench or a small dresser with a solid back, – just a couple of ideas for your imagination flow.
The door is just the beginning! Another thing is about the mirror: mirror facing the bed and reflecting your body while you are sleeping is no good. The reason is in the fact that it depletes or exhausts your energy instead of rebuilding it during night hours. Solution is in moving the mirror or changing its angle. If it’s ‘not in your cards’ – cover the mirror with any decor for a night time (curtains, for instance).
Avoid any heavy items hanging over your bed (like chandelier or ceiling fan). Why? It creates heavy and oppressive energy. If there is no possibility to move the bed, or say, there is a huge ceiling beam overhead that can’t be removed – use an easy and light canopy to be protected.
Moreover, if you have a bedroom with a sloped ceiling, you better move your bed so that the head is under the highest point of the ceiling. The very sloped parts apply pressure to your energy, leading to health problems and depressed feelings.
If your bed is placed under a window, to keep the energy flows right add a solid headboard or use heavy window curtains or blinds to cover the window. From the other side, positioning bed closer to the bedroom door is not a good solution either. The wall containing the door means a bed is open to a rush of active energy. In this case, create a barrier that helps to be defended from the harsh energy rushing in.
Avoid sharp objects and corners, decorative arms pointed at your body while you sleep. Soften your bedroom as much as you can allow, with fabric, throws and pillows, flowers and plants, or another soft object.
A bed placed against the wall restricts the energy flow. Furthermore, if you share it with your partner, it brings an imbalance in the relationship. It is better to pull the bed away from the wall for a clear access from both sides, and balance it right with the nightstands from both sides. For small living spaces – centre the bed for equal space from both sides, no matter how small it is.
