Feng shui: where do I place my bed?

feng shui usually appears in decorative trend magazines (sometimes even mentioned as just another religion among many). The truth is that it is a philosophy of life, which seeks balance and the flow of positive energies.

Feng” (wind) and “shui” (water) are the two elements that provide a vital flow of energy, channeling health, prosperity and harmony.

What is it for and how do you get started?

This philosophy, closely linked to the distribution of furniture and decoration in the different spaces of the home, is usually put into practice when one of these three objectives is achieved:

  1. Maintain energy (mainly to prevent energy imbalances and promote harmony in your daily life).
  2. Restore energy (to adjust the energy balance when you feel that something is not quite right).
  3. Increase energy (mainly positive vibes. It is used especially when you want to achieve a personal goal).

It is crucial to understand that each house or space requires a specific flow of energy. To know which one is necessary for your home, it is best to contact a feng shui expert, in any case, we give you some basic keys to start your journey.

  1. The first thing is to get rid of everything that is not used: order and cleanliness are very important to achieve harmony. Furniture that is not used, in addition to that which is not safe (due to being partially broken or having very pronounced corners), only hinders the energy flow.
  2. Do not place mirrors in front of doors or windows, as the energy bounces off the reflection and escapes (in addition to causing restlessness).
  3. Maximize the natural light in your home. If this is missing, complete it with lamps and artificial lights: your home should always be bright.
  4. Water elements (such as fountains, vases with water, etc.) are vital to attracting good fortune.

feng shui in your bedroom

Having the possibility of choosing a room, try to choose a bedroom with a square or rectangular shape: these shapes are those of the earth element, which provides balance to Chi (which is the force of nature that makes us be in tune with our around).

In every bedroom, the main element should be the bed. Therefore, its correct placement is the most important part to guarantee positive energy in our room.

The ideal is to place the bed in a centered position, with support elements on each side (such as nightstands and small lamps, which provide protection). The headboard should be placed on the wall furthest from the door, in addition to avoiding aligning the foot of the bed with the door (this causes a greater feeling of insecurity). If it cannot be done any other way, it would be best to place a high footboard or a trunk at the foot of the bed, acting as a protective barrier between the bed and the door. Try to control the door from the bed, but without seeing it completely directly.

The headboard of the bed is an essential element: its absence generates instability. It is an element that, in addition to being decorative, gives a greater feeling of protection and support.

As for the colors of your bedroom, feng shui recommends soft colors (especially pastels). For a more in-depth color guide, check out our article on the best colors for your room .

Things to avoid in your bedroom:

  1. Two separate mattresses for a double bed, as this can be a symbol of disunity and breakup in the couple.
  2. Mirrors in front of doors (for the reason expressed above) as well as in front of the bed, since they worsen the quality of sleep.
  3. Still life images (which represent still lifes) and the presence of dried flowers, for the same reason.
  4. Avoid doing physical and work activities in your room: it hinders the passage of relaxing energy.

Ventilation is very important for energy renewal. Windows are sources of new good fortune: decorate them with curtains in light colors. You can also have fresh flowers and incense in your room, as they bring vitality.
