Choose the right layout
Feng shui is an ancient Chinese philosophy that can help you design your room to create balance and harmony in your life. Feng shui principles are based on the idea that energy flows through the environment. You can maximize positive thoughts and emotions by arranging elements of your home or office to create a “positive” energy flow.
“Balance” is the key word here—you want to avoid clutter and keep everything organized, but also avoid being too rigid or simplistic with how you decorate your space so it doesn’t feel boring.
There are many different schools of feng shui, and the principles can be applied to all areas of your life. In this article, we’ll focus on how you can apply feng shui principles to your bedroom.
Choose the right colors
The walls in your bedroom should be calming, such as light blue or green. Try to keep accent colors in your room limited to small accessories like lamps and bedding.
You also want to be careful with how much white or gray you use in your room. Too many of these tones can make the space feel cold and clinical, which is not what you want when trying to create a relaxing atmosphere. If possible, choose darker colors with more warmth—browns, and reds are great options.
If you can’t paint the walls yourself, try hiring a professional painter to help you pick out a color scheme that will work well with your furniture pieces.
Choose the right headboard
Choosing the right headboard is a crucial step in feng shui-ing your bedroom. The headboard should be a focal point in the room, but it should also be neutral in color and proportionate to both the size of the bed and the size of your bedroom.
If you have a king-size bed, you want to get a large, oversized headboard that can take up all that space on one side or two smaller ones placed next to each other (a mirrored pair is best here). If it’s smaller than king size or more significant than queen size (or if you’re going for something more modern), keep things simple with only one big piece of furniture as a focal point (like this sleek black version we love). Whatever kind of bed you have, keep these tips in mind when choosing yours:
- Neutral colors are best—you won’t regret keeping things simple here! They’ll go with anything else in your room and help balance out all those colorful accents elsewhere without being too matchy-matchy either way.
- Match its scale with those around it—if there are no other large pieces nearby (like dressers or nightstands), then make sure even though it may look small compared to most furniture pieces out there today due to its wood finish alone–but remember these days everything comes prebuilt so don’t worry about having any problems figuring out how much space will fit comfortably into place once installed properly!
It’s even better if your nightstands match your bed in style and finish. If you’re going for a more traditional look, try to find something with its character (like these brass-finished pieces), but keep them small enough, so they don’t compete with the room’s main focal point.
Place the bed in the commanding position
The bed should be in the center of your bedroom, facing the door. The bed should be at least 3 feet away from walls and not against a window or door.
If it’s too big, it could look like an afterthought. It’ll make your room feel cramped and cluttered if it’s too small. You’ll also want to consider what kind of bed you have (king, queen, or full size) and how much space you have overall since beds come in various sizes and shape these days (some even come with storage drawers underneath! The bed should be placed on a flat surface, not on an incline. The mattress should be firm and have no indentations or sags. If you cannot adjust your mattress, consider placing a board under the center of your mattress for added support.)
Light your bedroom well
If you’re going to use artificial light, do not forget that lighting is one of the most essential elements in Feng Shui. Ensure your bedroom is well-lit, with all lights on timers or dimmer switches. If you have a window and choose to have curtains, make sure they are not able to be pulled back by anyone outside of the room; instead, install blackout shades or shutters if needed.
If you don’t have natural light coming into your room through windows or skylights, consider using lamps with shades that block out unwanted light (and keep the heat in!). Otherwise, opt for lamps with dimmer switches so they can be turned down at night when it’s time to sleep.
Add plants or flowers to your bedroom
One easy way to improve the energy in your bedroom is by adding plants or flowers. Plants and flowers are known for their ability to help people sleep better, clean the air, and focus on something other than their worries. Using them in your room can also help you feel more relaxed overall.
Adding plants or flowers to your bedroom is a great way to improve the energy in the space. Plants have been shown to help people sleep better, clean the air and focus on something other than their worries.
Don’t put a mirror on the wall opposite your bed
It would help if you did not place a mirror on the wall opposite your bed.
This is because mirrors are used to deflect energy, and you don’t want the energy of your bedroom to be deflected away from you while you’re sleeping. If it were, it would be more difficult for positive chi from the sun and moon to enter your room and bring good fortune into your life!
Mirrors can also create negative energy, so if someone sleeps in the same room as a mirror, they’ll have bad dreams. Another reason not to put one there: mirrors reflect at us whatever we’re feeling about ourselves. So if something about yourself is bothering or worrying you (like acne scars), having them reflected on you will only make things worse!
Other ways placing a mirror opposite your bed could affect how well rested and energized we feel when we wake up in our rooms — including whether or not they reflect light correctly when sunlight hits them throughout each day (which affects how much vitamin D they generate). But these aren’t necessarily bad things; some people might find them helpful because they’ll know exactly what time sunrise was last night instead of just guessing based on how long it took before someone started snoring loudly enough for everyone else in the house to wake up!
Use Crystals or Other Symbols Of Energy
You can also use crystals or other energy symbols to create balance in your space. Crystals are a great way to bring more energy into the room, which is helpful for those with low energy or depression. Alternatively, you may wish to place them in the center of your bed to generate a calming atmosphere throughout the rest of your room. In addition, if you want to bring more water into this area—which will help with emotions and balance—you can also add a bowl filled with water.
Additionally, many create a crystal grid by laying out their crystals in patterns on their mattresses (or pillows). By doing this regularly every day after cleansing yourself and wearing positive clothing with affirmations printed on them (like “I am confident”), you will notice an increase in positive thoughts that lead towards success!
Feng Shui Your Bedroom
Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese philosophy that can help you design your room to create balance and harmony in your life. Feng Shui is about creating balance and harmony in your life, so it makes sense to apply these principles to the space where you spend most of it—your bedroom.
First, determine what kind of energy you want to create for yourself by looking at the environment around you. Do you want peace or excitement? Once you’ve decided on this, think about how each item in your bedroom affects those emotions if something doesn’t fit with them (like a pile of dirty laundry), move it somewhere else until later when it’s convenient for cleaning up!
So now that you know more about feng shui, we hope you’ll consider using it in your bedroom. If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed by all these tips, don’t worry! Start small and work your way up—after all, it’s not like there’s an exact science behind all these steps. Feng shui is more about getting into a good mindset than anything else, so take some time to think about how the furniture in your bedroom can be arranged for optimal harmony (and maybe buy some plants).
