Feng Shui in the bedroom: matching tips
Feng Shui and the position of furniture
Getting the furniture right is one of the most important things you can do for your room.
Starting with the bed. This is the main furniture of the environment and its position is fundamental to harmonize the room and, mainly, to guarantee the quality of sleep.
So pay attention to these tips:
Do not place the bed under the window
According to Feng Shui, the bed under the window is harmful to sleep, as it causes a feeling of insecurity and causes you to lose energy.
Do not place the bed against the wall
This tip is very valid especially for a double room, since the bed leaning against the wall can cause a feeling of « suffocation » in the partner who sleeps in that corner.
The bed against the wall also hinders the circulation of energy throughout the room.
It is also important to mention that the bed must not be leaning against walls where there is a passage of water pipes. They can compromise rest.
Do not place the bed in front of or in line with the door
The bed aligned or facing the door causes a feeling of insecurity and that at any moment you may be surprised by someone’s arrival. Another problem, according to Feng Shui, is that the bed in front or aligned with the door favors the loss of energy, making you feel tired throughout the day.
The recommendation, in this case, is to place the bed in a diagonal position with the entrance door, so that you can see it, but without facing it directly.
Avoid box or chest beds
We know that the box or trunk bed is a great friend to those who live in small houses. But for Feng Shui this type of bed is not very suitable, because it does not allow the fluidity of energy, keeping the room stagnant.
The solution is to choose to store under the bed only items that you constantly use, such as bedding or blankets, for example. Avoid storing unused objects, as this contributes to further stagnating the energy of the environment.
This tip applies even if your bed is not a chest type. Do not accumulate boxes and other objects under the bed. This space must be free and airy.
Provide a headboard
Feng Shui strongly recommends that you have a headboard on the bed. Preferably it is solid, made of wood or upholstered.
The headboard is important to promote solidity and safety.
Do not use cabinets with mirrors
Let’s talk now about the bedroom cabinets. The biggest tip in this case is to avoid using mirrors on the doors, especially if it is facing the bed.
Prefer to install the mirrors inside the doors.
The nightstand or nightstand is very important for Feng Shui. It represents support and stability. So do not dismiss this furniture.
In the double room, the tip is to have equal tables so that a partner does not feel disadvantaged in relation to the other.
Feng Shui and plants
There are people who are against it, there are people who are in favor. For Feng Shui plants can and should be used inside the room.
The ideal is to use flowers and plants in pots supported on the dresser or side table, for example. Avoid hanging or climbing plants.
Feng Shui and the home office in the bedroom
Nothing is worse for Feng Shui than putting the workspace in the same place where you sleep. This is very detrimental to the quality of your sleep and to your emotional relationship, since work will be competing for your attention all the time.
But what to do in times when the home office is a reality for many people? Look for another space in the house to set up your office, but if that is not possible, set up the home office in the room so that every time you finish your work you do not have to face papers, documents, notebook, among other work materials .
The ideal is to have cabinets and retractable table and bench options, so you can assemble and dismantle the home office every day.
Following this same idea, also avoid the accumulation of books inside the room. They can cause a feeling of mental fatigue and do not allow you to relax as you should.
Feng Shui and in-room electronics
It is important to disconnect from the electronic devices inside the room. Therefore, avoid using a computer, notebook, television and your cell phone when in this environment.
When sleeping, leave your cell phone in airplane mode and, if you can, also disconnect the internet modem, if it is inside the room.
Television, in particular, can become a major problem if you are in the habit of sleeping with it on. During sleep, your subconscious continues to work and this means that it captures all messages and information that are in the environment.
That is, everything that is being broadcast on TV is being absorbed by your mind. And that’s why you sleep, but wake up tired the other day.
By the way, it is also interesting not to turn on the TV once you wake up. You don’t need to know the latest news as soon as you wake up. Try to focus your mind on positive things.
If you can, the best option is to take the TV out of the room.
Feng Shui and the mess
Let’s face it, you can’t relax in a dirty and messy room.
So roll up your sleeves and do that cleaning both inside and outside the cabinets. Donate what you no longer use, throw away what is broken and fix what you want to keep with you.
Do not accumulate unused and damaged objects, they represent stagnant energy and nobody wants it in the rest environment.
Also get in the habit of creating an organizing routine for your room, including making your bed in the morning and collecting the clothes that are scattered around.
Feng Shui and the pictures on the wall
It’s great to remember friends and relatives through photos, isn’t it? But be aware that this habit of putting pictures on the wall can be harmful to your room.
According to Feng Shui, too many pictures of people can generate anxiety and a feeling of being watched all the time.
The same goes for religious figures, like saints and angels. Prefer images of landscape or something that brings peace and comfort.
But Feng Shui also warns of the use of paintings with figures that represent water, such as the sea, rivers and waterfalls. The water element inside the room can bring financial losses to the residents.
Also avoid paintings that bring representations of violence, sadness, loneliness and death.
Feng Shui and colors
The colors play an enormous role in harmonizing the room, not only from an aesthetic point of view, but also from an emotional side.
Prefer light and soft colors that inspire calm and tranquility. Very hot and vibrant tones, such as red, orange and pink should be avoided or used in small quantities.
Also beware of the excess of cold colors in the room, such as blue, for example, although the color is relaxing, when used too much it can end up causing feelings of emptiness, sadness and impersonality.
Look for a harmonious, slightly warm and cozy color palette. A good idea is earthy tones mixed with neutral tones.
Feng Shui in the bedroom to attract love
For those who are looking for a new love or simply want to strengthen a relationship that already exists, they can use some Feng Shui techniques, in addition to those already mentioned above. Check out:
All in pairs
One of the best known Feng Shui tips for attracting love is to use everything in pairs. That is, nothing just a pillow, have two or four. It is always important to use an even number. The same goes for trinkets and other room decorations.
Bet on tones that favor romance, like pink, lilac and a light touch of red, but without exaggeration.
Flowers help to preserve and create the atmosphere of romance. Place a vase on each side of the bed, for example.
A bed full of cushions and pillows is beautiful! But how are you going to make room for someone else when the bed is already completely occupied? Free up space for love to come.
