Your bedroom is one of the most powerful centers in your home, and the correct placement of furniture allows positive energy (or chi) to flow throughout the space. according to feng shui philosophy, your bedroom represents you! wondering why? well, that’s because you spend most of your time sleeping there, and of course, it’s also the most private space in your home.
When using feng shui to improve your qi (or life force energy), it’s important to go through the feng shui bagua map throughout the house to decide where your bedroom is. doing this will give you a better understanding of the best location for your bedroom.

Interestingly, the bagua placement of the bedroom offers a clear perspective on how you can decorate the bedroom, keeping in mind the overall energy of your home.
having said that. Here are some tips to implement to make sure you are mapping her bedroom with feng shui.
1. start with the placement of the bed
Whether you have an affordable full-size mattress or a huge king-size mattress, the key lies in its feng shui placement. in fact, that is the center of attraction of your bedroom and it needs the maximum attention. How your bed will fit into your room is so crucial that the bagua map is of limited value unless the bed is positioned correctly.
- Headboard placement: Ideally, the headboard should be placed against the wall with enough space on both sides of the bed for easy access. this means your bed becomes the point of command or power: facing your door but not in direct line with it.
- footboard location: never place your bed so that the footboard is near or aligned along the bedroom door because this is usually the “coffin” position and means “death.” practically, it is unfavorable or bad to sleep in that configuration.
- bed location: your bed should be away from the windows because the energy that comes from them flows over your bed, disturbing good restful sleep. in addition, a headboard located in front of the windows fails to be in the “command” position. Most importantly, don’t place your bed below the top beam, as it poses a “threat” to general well-being and has a strong association with bad luck.
- Don’t overlook the Doors: Double check all bedroom doors and make sure they open freely without crowding or touching the bed. keep bathroom and closet doors closed when not in use. open cabinet doors interfere with energy flow and encourage stuck chi. on the other hand, any open bathroom door will risk draining your fortune, especially if your toilet is visible from your bed.
2. map your bedroom correctly
once you have positioned your bed and made sure the doors open freely, without any obstruction, the next step is to apply feng shui bagua to map the room with its energy areas. doing this helps to position the furniture correctly.
- align the front door of the room: align the bottom edge of the bagua with the front door of the room.
- pay attention to your goals and issues: Keep in mind your most important life goals or biggest issues when deciding which types of energy and areas to improve.
3. apply the bagua map
Understand that your bedroom is not a candy store where you are tricked into getting a restful night’s sleep with red lanterns, fountains, or bamboo plants. therefore, it should not look like one. instead, harmonize it with the right elements, colors, decorations, furniture, and textures to achieve it.
- The far left corner of your bedroom front door is the wealth area. to align this with feng shui, a nice red lampshade or a nice red cushion placed on the rocking chair increases the wealth and energy there.
- on the bagua, the top right corner is the part of the relationship. therefore, placing a picture or photograph of you and your partner or a double bench will magnify the relationship or romantic energy.
- a small bookcase or chest of drawers in the family space amplifies togetherness, well-being and love when you top it off with a small plate of rose or a green bowl made of jade. but remember, no clutter!
other tips and tricks to keep in mind
Not every bedroom is a blank canvas where you’ll have enough space to fit a few pieces of furniture. so do your best and arrange things so that it aligns with feng shui principles.
Having said that, here are some tips and tricks to take note of:
- clear all clutter from the bedroom
When it comes to feng shui, clutter basically means:
- unfinished business
- prevents your life from moving forward
- increases anxiety
However well decorated, a bedroom should be sparse, at least as much as possible. only small clutter and trinkets should be contained.
However, you should use items that promote wellness and happiness, but you’ll need to choose your pieces carefully. Instead of having 7-10 items and a few souvenirs on your shelf, why not go minimalist and just use 2-3 pieces?
- place artwork correctly
When it comes to feng shui, it’s vital to be surrounded by positive artwork, something that can help you visualize and move toward your life goals.
To do this, decorate the walls of your room, especially the one directly across from your bed, with your favorite piece of art. when you do this, it will not only be the first thing you see in the morning, but also the last thing you see when you sleep at night.
Be sure to place a painting or any piece of decoration that reflects what you want to achieve in life, whether they are representations of love, happiness or peaceful images.
- Don’t overlook the bedroom lights
Relying solely on overhead lighting installations can be detrimental and detrimental to the feng shui of a bedroom. therefore, multiple light sources are vital.
for example, during the day, it is ideal to have natural light instead of relying on tubes, lamps or light bulbs. later when the day is done, switch to softer lighting like your chandelier, fairy lights on the wall, etc.
In addition, candles are another excellent source to light up your bedroom. why? Well, because they promote intimacy.
placing your bagua map – in a nutshell
The great thing about a bagua map is that it can be used for spaces of all sizes and layouts. Whether you’re looking for an entire home or something as simple as your work desk, there’s a map for it all.
if you live in an apartment: keep the bottom of the bagua map aligned with the wall of the main entrance. this wall is a gateway to knowledge, learning or useful people.
if you live in a bungalow: get a compass and place your career area to the north, reputation area to the south, health to the west, and the blessing of the ancestors in the East. it’s a good idea to place your bagua map in line with your floor plan and layout the entire space.
