How to Feng Shui your Bedroom

Feng Shui in the home is important; the bedroom is considered a vital room in your home to apply Feng Shui rules. The energies in your home play an important part in how they affect your sleeping habits; below are tips on adding Feng Shui to your Bedroom layout.

Feng Shui Bed Placement

In the bedroom, Feng Shui’s bed direction is essential. Feng Shui principles have proven that everything is ultimately energy; it makes sense that your bed’s position is part of bedroom Feng Shui. The bed should be placed relative to the door and allow the sleeper the broadest possible scope of the room. A restricted range of sight within the room can restrict the person’s Chi and their life vision. The larger the space in front of your bed, the more your life expands, breathes, and improves.

Avoid placing your bed in a corner because you or your partner may feel trapped. Both sides of the bed should be easily accessible so that one partner doesn’t have to climb over the other to get out of bed. In that case, the person who is sleeping facing the wall could feel deprived of freedom, restricted or stuck in the relationship. If your bed position doesn’t allow you to see the door and you can’t move the bed, place a sizable mirror that easily allows you to see the door. If you need to angle the mirror to show the door, use a standing mirror angled to the appropriate position.

Visibility of the Bedroom Door for Feng Shui

In Feng Shui principles, having a view of the door from the bed without being too close to it gives a sense of safety, helps with relaxation and promotes sleep.  Never place the foot of the bed towards the door; this is known as ‘coffin position’ and puts the bed as the primary focus in the room.  If this can’t be avoided use a piece of furniture like a footboard or table to act as a buffer zone. Remember to make sure the buffer doesn’t block the view of the door.

Feng Shui Rules For Better Sleep

The most important rule in Feng Shui for the bedroom is that your bed must have a headboard! A solid wooden headboard is recommended to add grounding and stabilization to your life. Metal headboards are not recommended. Scientific studies have concluded that poor sleep quality can be detrimental to your mental and physical health, including the sex drive. The headboard provides support and offers a balance of yin and yang energies.

Eliminate Mirrors In A Bedroom

According to Feng Shui’s bedroom setup, you should avoid having mirrors in the bedroom. In Feng Shui for love and marriages, mirrors can reflect past energy into space, which can cause restlessness and amplify anxiety. Feng Shui mirror placement indicates that mirrors in the bedroom facing the bed need to be relocated because they reflect the couple in the bed. Some believe that this will cause a failure in the relationship because of the entry of a third party. So it is important to not have a mirror opposite your bed, whether on a dresser or the wall.

Feng Shui Alter Placement

The images and objects that you surround yourself with effect your life more than you could imagine. Alters and statues should never be placed in the bedroom. Do not position your altar to share the same wall as your bedroom, especially the bed. Buddha, Bodhisattva and Heavenly Deities are compassionate. Placing them in the bedroom is inappropriate and disrespectful; we do not want the intimacy between the couples to cause any disrespect to the altar.

Bedroom Ventilation

The bedroom should be well-ventilated, keeping old energy out of the room.  Closing your bedroom door, closet and bathroom doors ensures the optimum flow of nourishing and healing energy, improving your health and strengthening relationships.

Bed Size Matters In Feng Shui

The bed plays an integral part in bedroom Feng Shui. The bed size is important; a single mattress is not suggested if you’re actively manifesting a relationship; these are for children and singles. On the other hand, many King size beds arrange so that the box spring is made up of two single beds pushed together. These types of beds can manifest into a symbolic divide in the relationship. Also, sleeping on a King size mattress does not encourage intimacy.  Invest in a full-size mattress or a Queen bed to avoid you and your partner feeling like you are miles away from each other.  Keep the area under the bed clean and free from storage and clutter; storing items under your bed affects your sleep. Feng Shui tips can only get you so far. When you are sleeping, your Yin is in a passive state; and it’s important to create an environment in Feng Shui that supports your qi and represents you and the feel of your home. It’s essential to live in a space that embraces what you want; if you need assistance, consider booking a Feng Shui Bedroom Consultation.

Bedroom Feng Shui Do’s and Don’ts for Enhancing Love and Romance

Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art of placement dating back over 5,000 years. It’s a philosophy that uses the accuracy of a Feng Shui compass, a luopan, along with spatial design, to assist individuals in finding balance in their lives by harmonizing their living environment with nature.

February is traditionally associated with love and romance. Optimizing your bedroom Feng Shui is very important for ensuring the longevity of your romantic relationship but also to ensure that your partner feels valued, especially if they’re moving their belongings into your home. If you’re moving into your romantic partner’s space, discuss which of these key Classical Feng Shui principles you can start incorporating into the bedroom. Or if you’re moving into a home that’s brand new for both of you, you’ll both have the chance to make sure you’re equally represented in the bedroom.

Many Classical Feng Shui tips can help your romantic relationship get off to a strong and stable start or strengthen existing relationships. Learn how to strengthen the connection of love between you and your spouse or partner.

Make Space in Your Bedroom for Your Partner

For proper bedroom Feng Shui and energy balance in the bedroom, it’s important that both romantic partners feel equally represented in the bedroom. 

For those people welcoming romantic partners into their homes by inviting them to move in, some changes may be necessary to ensure both partners feel that the energy in the space serves them equally. If you’re joining your life with someone and they are moving into your previously occupied space, there are some important bedroom Feng Shui remedies you’ll need to consider before they move in.

  • Remove all objects including photos and mementos that represent old or failed relationships. It’s tempting to keep these objects because of nostalgia or because of the romantic feelings they incite. However, these objects must be removed because these physical reminders represent old relationships hanging around, which can burden your new relationship with negative energy.
  • Eliminate anything old to help welcome the new relationship. For example, ensure you have new bedsheets to sleep on as old energy can linger in the bed.
  • Replace single pieces of furniture with pairs. It’s essential to have pairs of items to combat subconscious thoughts that reinforce the idea of a single person inhabiting the bedroom. By doing this, you’ll also remove negative energy from the room. For example:
    • If you have a single nightstand, replace it with a pair of matching nightstands. If you choose to place a lamp on each of the nightstands, ensure that the two lamps are equal in height.
    • If you have a single chair or a single-person closet, they all subconsciously indicate that this bedroom is a space meant for one person only. Have two matching chairs and make room in the closet for both of you.
    • Stay away from artwork that portrays single objects only. For example, a picture that shows only one flower, one bird, or just one person in the piece of art. Again, this signifies that the bedroom is meant for only one person.

For couples moving into a new home together, it’s a great opportunity to furnish and decorate your bedroom so that both of you feel equally represented.  You and your partner should have an equal share of the space so that your energies feel harmonious in the bedroom.

Create Balanced Love Energy Using Your Decor

When decorating your bedroom, Classical Feng Shui suggests that it’s important to balance the energy in a room through your decor, especially when you’re designing your bedroom for love. For example, if the decor in your bedroom is excessively flowery and delicate, it will create more yin energy.  On the other hand, if the decor is very dark and masculine, it will give off more yang energy.

Balancing the yin and yang energies is very important to ensure that you and your spouse feel comfortable and at home when in the bedroom. 

Set a Romantic Mood with Lighting in Your Bedroom

Setting up the lights and atmosphere in your bedroom according to Classical Feng Shui principles can greatly impact your and your partner’s feelings about romance and love. Lighting is one of the most powerful manifestations of energy so be mindful of what the lighting levels are in the bedroom.

  • To purify the energy in the bedroom, welcome in natural light each day by opening up your blinds and curtains.
  • The lighting in the bedroom must be balanced. Try having a dimmer to keep the light levels balanced. Aim to have the light not too bright and not too dim. The lighting should be soft.
  • Toxin-free candles are recommended as the best option for bedroom lighting when you want to create a romantic ambiance.
  • You can set the right mood in the bedroom by lighting scented candles and draping sheer fabrics or lace over lamps. Don’t forget to play romantic music to further enhance the mood!

Bedroom lighting can often be overlooked when thinking about love and romance. Choosing Feng Shui appropriate lighting can greatly enhance the mood but also ensure the right energy is welcomed into the bedroom.

Keep Work and Electronics Out of the Bedroom

To enhance romance and love in your bedroom, Classical Feng Shui recommends that certain items be kept out of the bedroom so that the focus remains solely on building a strong relationship with your partner.

  • Any electronic equipment should be placed in the office or other areas of the home. This includes cell phones, tablets, laptops, and any other electronic gadgets.
  • Remove the TV in the bedroom since it’s not conducive to romance.  A TV in the bedroom can affect your ability to build a strong bond with your partner.
  • Purge the room of all work-related materials that distract you. The bedroom is for enhancing love relationships (not working!) so don’t mix work and play.
  • Place exercise equipment outside of the bedroom. Exercise equipment in the bedroom can imply that your relationship is exhausting.  On top of that, the effort you put in when exercising can be transposed onto your love life. Ideally, you don’t want your relationship to feel like a sustained effort.

In addition to being a distraction when you’re connecting with your partner in the bedroom, electronic devices also emit electromagnetic frequencies which can have an impact on the energy in your bedroom. That’s why you must keep electronic devices out of your bedroom as much as possible. The bedroom should be reserved as a place for love and romance or as a place for rest and rejuvenation, not work.

Choose Photos and Artwork that Strengthen Your Romance

Because the bedroom is a very personal space for many people, you may be inclined to include some favourite photos and artwork in your bedroom.  However, if you want to Feng Shui your bedroom for love and romance, it’s important to ensure that what you’re displaying in the bedroom is positively affecting the energy in the bedroom.

  • Place family and children’s photos in the family room or living room where they belong.  Don’t display them in the bedroom because family photos give off yang energy that can be overpowering and cause restless sleep. Images and objects surrounding them can greatly affect your life. 
  • Check the statues and art in your bedroom. Remove paintings, sculptures, and photos that represent negative situations, loneliness, sadness, war, and fights. This type of art can bring negative energy and create a tense atmosphere in your love life when, ideally, the bedroom should be peaceful. 
  • Consider adding artwork featuring a pair of love birds or peony flowers as these represent love. 
  • Add a statue or picture of Ganesh outside the bedroom door to remove any obstacles in partnership and romance. 
  • Place a statue of Kwan Yin, the Goddess of Love and Compassion, directly outside of the bedroom.
  • Place happy photos of you and your partner on the dresser.

When it comes to bedroom Feng Shui, oftentimes there is a lot of focus on the positioning of the furniture but it’s important to remember that your photos and artwork can also greatly affect the energy levels in your bedroom, especially if you want more love and romance between yourself and your spouse or partner.

Use Rose Quartz Crystals for Manifesting Love

Crystals, especially rose quartz, are thought to reflect and enhance energy. Because rose quartz is widely known as the “love stone”, it’s frequently incorporated as a love remedy for bedroom Feng Shui.  Having rose quartz in your bedroom can help speed up the process for those seeking true love. These crystals can aid in mending broken relationships and jazz up existing romances. Rose quartz crystals are also known to help someone remain calm under pressure and during confrontations.

Rose quartz crystals come in many different formats and sizes. You can purchase chunks of rose quartz, polished rose quartz hearts, and rose quartz lamps to place in your bedroom. For couples, it’s important to have a PAIR of rose quartz crystals, roughly the same size, to promote the feeling of equality between the two partners.

Feng Shui in the Bedroom

The 3 important R’s in the bedroom are Romance, Rest and Recharge. Any bedroom Feng Shui that helps improve sleep is a necessary foundation for improved romance in the bedroom.

Place Your Bed Properly

Feng Shui is the 5000-year-old art of placement. Since it’s been proven that everything is ultimately energy, it makes sense that where you position your bed is very important. It should be placed relative to the door. The bed should be positioned where it allows the sleeper the widest possible scope of the room. A restricted range of sight within the room can restrict the sleeper’s Chi and their life vision. The larger the space in front of your bed, the more your life expands, breathes, and improves. It’s also important to not sleep with your head under a window.

You should avoid placing your bed in a corner because you or your partner may feel trapped. This means that both sides of the bed should be easily accessible so that you or your partner doesn’t have to climb over another body to get on and off the bed. Place your bed properly to prevent one person from getting the less desirable position. If it’s possible, move your bed so that both sides are at an equal distance from the walls. If one side of the bed is touching the wall, the person who is sleeping facing the wall could feel deprived of freedom, restricted or stuck in the relationship.

Visibility of the Bedroom Door

You should clearly see the bedroom door from the bed. Not seeing who is approaching can keep you uncertain and on edge. Even if you think that you’re accustomed to not seeing the door, you can still likely experience ongoing subconscious stress, which can create imbalance and frustration. If your bed position doesn’t allow you to see the door and you can’t move the bed, you can place a sizable mirror opposite the bed that allows you to easily see the door. If you need to angle the mirror to show the door, use a standing mirror angled to the appropriate position. The direct line from the door to the bed should not sit in the direct line of the path of the doorway. If your bed does sit in the direct line of the door, the Chi of the door runs directly and too powerfully up the middle of the bed. This factor can create diseases along the midline of the body. Seeing the door to your bedroom symbolizes that you know what life is bringing and feel prepared to deal with whatever comes. You’re in command, and the results manifest positively in many areas of your life.

A Solid Headboard

A good solid wooden headboard is recommended for your sleep quality because it gives you a subtle sense of security. Metal headboards are not recommended. Scientific studies have concluded poor sleep quality can be detrimental to your mental and physical health, including the sex drive.

Creating a Loving Environment in the Bedroom

Remove past relationship photos and mementos from the bedroom (and from your home), no matter how romantic or nostalgic you are. Eliminate the old to bring in the new. If you have pictures or other physical reminiscence of a relationship hanging around, then they’re still there! Don’t keep objects that remind you of failed relationships. Make sure that you have new sheets, too, to sleep on. Old energy can linger in the bed as well.

Keep the TV out of the bedroom

Any electronic equipment should be placed in the office or other area of the home. A TV in the bedroom is not conducive to romance. The bedroom is for loving, not working. Don’t mix work or play. Purge the room of all work-related materials that distract you. No exercise equipment in the bedroom, it makes your relationship exhausting. The effort you put when exercising will be transposed in your love life. And certainly, you don’t want your relationship to feel like a sustained effort.

Do not keep your altar in your bedroom

It is said to be disrespectful. No spiritual pursuit or spiritual deities, it prevents relationship and intimacy.
If mirrors in the bedroom are facing the bed, relocate them because it reflects the couple on the bed. Some believe that this will cause a failure in the relationship because of the entry of a third party.

In addition to the above:

Have things in pairs because it promotes feelings of equality.
Mismatched night tables create an imbalance in the relationship. Replace them with a set to encourage equality in your relationship.
Having a pair of matching lamps show you want to share your life and home with your loved one.

Do not have just a single chair in the bedroom; have a pair of chairs.
The images and objects surrounding you affect your life more than you could ever imagine. Check the statues and art in your bedroom and Remove the paintings, sculptures or photos representing negative situations, loneliness, sadness, war, fight etc . They can bring upon you negative energies and create a tense atmosphere in your love life when, alternatively, the bedroom should be peaceful and safe for those who sleep there. You can replace them with a painting of peony flowers or love birds as these represents love.

Do not display family and children’s photos in the bedroom
This is said to hinder your sex life. Put such photos in the living or family room where they belong.

Adjust light levels in your bedroom

Having a dimmer can help keep the light levels balanced. This is very important, as light is one of the most powerful manifestations of energy. Toxin-free candles are recommended as the best option for bedroom lighting.

Set the mood. The mood in the bedroom is important, e.g., light-scented candles, drape sheer fabrics or lace over lamps. Keep lighting soft. Play romantic music. Place “happy” photos of you and your partner on the dresser.

The bedroom should be well-ventilated

This is beneficial in moving old energy out of the room. Keep all doors closed during the night. It might be your bedroom door, the door of your closet, your bathroom door, etc. This will ensure the optimum flow of nourishing and healing energy and will improve your health and strengthen your relationship.

The size of your bed matters

If you are single, a single mattress is not a good idea. In addition, sleeping on either a king-size or single mattress doesn’t encourage romance. Sleeping on a huge mattress does not encourage intimacy. Invest in a full-size or a queen. Store nothing under the bed, and keep it clean. Storing items under your bed affects your sleep. This kind of mundane imagery is not conducive to rest or romance. Think of sensual, soft, bedding when selecting pillows, sheets and comforters. Any type of bedding that creates a cozy environment is great for the bedroom.

Rose quartz or green quartz is recommended

Rose quartz hearts

Rose quartz is the most desirable of all quartz and is associated with love, romance and relationships. Buy chunks of rose quartz, rose quartz hearts, and also rose quartz lamps to place in your bedroom. Always have the rose quartz in pairs. Widely known as the “Love Stone”, rose quartz is most favored for its ability to speed up the process for those seeking true love, mending broken relationships and jazzing up your existing romance life.

Add a statue or picture of Ganesh outside the bedroom door to remove any obstacles to partnership/romance. Add a picture or statue of Kwan Yin, the Goddess of love and compassion, as you enter the bedroom. Do not have her facing the bed.

Remove anything fragile

If anything in your room triggers anxiety or feeling of clumsiness, change your bedroom decor. There should be nothing in your bedroom that contributes to stress.

Feng Shui tips can only get you so far. What’s important is that you make the effort to improve your relationship and not just expect Feng Shui to do all the work. Feng Shui however, can enhance the chances and quality of a solid relationship and these surefire ways are recommended to create an environment that supports and enhances your love life.
