Your bed is the most important piece of furniture you have. We all know that sleep is the most important thing we can do for our health, success, and mental sanity, and your bed supports your sleep.
feng shui bedroom headboard:
In feng shui, a bed with a strong headboard is important. the bed should represent strength and support for your life. we know that the strongest houses are built inside a mountain, since they have the strength of the mountain to support them. the same goes for beds. those beds with strong headboards protect you and your energy while you sleep.

feng shui bedroom bed:
The best feng shui beds are made of wood and contain little metal. the wood element has the energy of a healthy, growing tree and is a warm element. while metal has the energy of refinement, logic, and decisiveness that make it easier to navigate life. Metal’s qualities of being focused and structured are better for a business or work space than your bedroom, which should be optimized for relaxation.
under your bed:
Feng shui is all about the flow of energy around a space. So, if you have items under your bed (yes, it’s a great storage space), but it’s not conducive to allowing energy to flow freely within your space. it is recommended not to have items under the bed.
bedroom arrangement according to feng shui:
For optimal feng shui bedroom layout, the bed should be placed against a solid wall. again, similar to the logic around the headboard, the solid wall grounds the energy above your head while you sleep. also, the bed should not be directly in line with a door or opening or facing away from a window.
direction to place your bed:
The direction you look can support your intentions in life. To determine your best direction, first calculate your Kua number. then, based on this kua number, decide which is the priority for this moment, love, wealth, growth or health. for example, a number 7 kua looking to maximize its growth potential would place the bed facing west. therefore, when you are sitting on your bed you are facing west.
feng shui bedroom tip #2: mirrors
Mirrors are not recommended in a bedroom for good feng shui. Mirrors are thought to bounce energy around the bedroom, which can cause restlessness. they are also said to amplify worries. it is especially important not to hang a mirror on the wall opposite the bed. if you need a mirror in your bedroom, place it behind a closet door.
feng shui bedroom tip #2: chandeliers, beams, and fans.
chandeliers, beams and fans are considered heavy feng shui elements. they can be beneficial to a room, but only when placed correctly. if your room is dark or dull, a chandelier will easily raise the chi of the room.
make sure not to hang a chandelier over the bed as it is not recommended. a chandelier directly above your bed will be heavy energy. if you can’t move the bed to a different location, the best option is to put a canopy over the bed or use a smaller flush mount style here.
feng shui bedroom tip #3: colors
The best feng shui bedroom colors are soothing, calming skin tones. That said, the color of your room is up to you and your goals for this room. To help you out, there are some colors that you should definitely avoid.
“never [use] blue for any bedroom, as it is connected to the element of water and can be overwhelming and create emotional imbalance.” elizabeth barnes, founder of feng shui dreams uk.
It is generally best to avoid bedroom colors and yang feng shui. (bright red, orange, yellow.)
“a soft yellow is an excellent feng shui bedroom color as it promotes effective communication, health and focus.” frankie jackson.
