Feng Shui in the Bedroom

Feng shui is a Chinese philosophical system of harmonizing everyone with the surrounding environment by moving furniture to specific areas and locations in the room. Although many are sceptical over its effectiveness those who have tried to follow the ideas of feng shui swear by it.

Having the proper Feng Shui in the bedroom can help your romantic life as well as your ability to rest and to feel in control and promote healthy sleep.

Beginning with the bed, the frame should be solid and in one piece. Whether it’s upholstered with leathers and fabrics or made solid wood we have a range of headboards that can be attached to your divan or bed. Furthermore, the head of your bed should be in front of a solid wall not a window or at an angle.

The mattress you have should provide you with support. Many options are available to you such as memory foam mattresses which mould to the body to evenly distribute your body weight supporting your curves and shape.

Your mattress should aid your lifestyle so a sports therapy mattress would be suitable for anyone with an active lifestyle from the Sports professional to the health conscious. In the heart of every Sports therapy mattress is cleverly constructed multi zone foam until, this foam with its individual castellated comfort cells creates air channels which enhance ventilation, airflow and cools the mattress.

This leads us on to the next step. Your bed should be at a good height with space underneath to allow the flow of energy. This positive feng shui energy needs to circulate around your body whilst you are sleeping and this would otherwise be blocked if there is storage or clutter under your bed.feng shui bed placement

The positioning of your bed is a fundamental fact in feng shui. Your bed should be placed as far away from the door as possible and should not be in direct line from it. It’s thought that having the bed in direct line of the door allows us to become vulnerable in our lives whereas facing the door at a distance will help us remain in control of our life. In the diagram examples 1 and 4 are both bad feng shui layouts that will bring negative energy. It’s also advised that if mirrors are placed in the bedroom they should be opposite the door.

Symmetry is also an important factor of furnishing your bedroom. Symmetry represents balance and a balanced life will relieve stress and promote healthy sleep.  Bedside tables and lamps should be placed at either side of the bed as well as providing symmetry; the soft lighting will be more gentle than your ceiling light.

Lastly, it is advised that large electronic equipment whether it be your television, computer, exercise bike or anything else should not be kept in the bedroom. However if you insist it should be kept as far away from the bed as possible. The bedroom should be solely for relaxing and any electronics can cause stress and block positive energy.

Whether you are interested in pursuing a feng shui friendly bedroom or are just looking to replace your existing bedroom furniture, here at FD Beds we have a range of divans, mattresses, bed frames, bedroom furniture and more to browse.
