Feng Shui Decorating Tips and Tricks For Your Bedroom

Feng Shui Decorating

Feng shui decorating is the vital ingredient to create an environment of harmony and balance in our life. One of the most important areas is our bedrooms.

It’s where we spend almost half of our lives, and it should be somewhere that’s conducive to the type of energy we need.

It’s where we recharge out tired bodies, at peace with ourselves while we sleep. Positive chi and fresh air should be able to circulate well in this environment to help less distractions in this quiet place.

Use these helpful feng shui decorating guidelines to create a bedroom fit for you’re needs.

Feng Shui Decorating

Bed Location and Position

Ideally the bedroom should be positioned away from the front door. This is not always possible without a few room changes taking place. Being located away from the front entrance to your home is called the command position.

Chi usually travels from doorways towards windows so your bed should not be positioned anywhere in between or blocking this. Place your bed far away from the door, but so you can also see the door from where you sleep. A sense inner security will be created from this position.

When sleeping, try to make sure that your head is positioned away from the window to stop your energy going out of it and making you feel tired when you wake. Before you go to sleep, try to remember to close the bathroom door too.

Having a strong head board on your bed is also a great way to protect and recharge your chi. The head board is believed to represent a solid mountain that is behind you while you sleep, principles from the 5 elements, and provides great benefit.

Something to be aware of is the natural flow of chi in our bodies, it goes in and out of our bodies through that hands, feet and top of the skull.

Bedside Tables

Another important element to be aware of in feng shui decorating is our bed side tables should have softer more rounded edges as opposed to sharp or square edges which would ‘cut’ incoming chi focused towards the occupants.

Again, if the bed is for couples, both should have a bedside table each to represent stability on their relationship.

The position of the bed is important for couples, try to keep it at equal distance from the walls, it symbolizes equality within your relationship.

Mirrors and Lighting

Having a mirror in your bedroom is useful but you must make sure that it is not positioned at the foot of your bed or where you are able to see your reflection as you sleep as this is very negative.

Feng shui decorating goes much further than just re-positioning furniture, lighting is extremely important too. As far as lighting in your bedroom goes, softer lighting is best and must not be positioned directly above your bed.

Commonly, people keep their personal computers in their bedrooms. This should be avoided, they are not compatible with the harmony your are trying to create, and must be separated.

Clear the Clutter

Clearing all of the clutter from underneath your bed and removing unwanted things is recommended.

When trying to create an environment that enhances energy and promotes wellness, you should always be aware of and remove and clutter in your feng shui decorating quest.

It blocks the free flow of energy and causes it to become stagnant with nowhere to physical move through. Stagnant energy is bad energy and will heavily affect all of the positive changes you’re trying to cerate with your feng shui decorating techniques.

A great piece of beautiful decor, a painting for example, should be placed in the area of the room where you usually focus on when you first awake.

This will help to inspire you at the very start of the day, putting you in positive state, which is very important and allows for more positivity to come your way.

As you can see, feng shui decorating techniques apply to almost every element the contemporary home already has, so using this introductory guide to place them correctly will start to increase the flow of positive chi in your bedroom, and ultimately, your life.
