Bedroom feng shui for a better night’s sleep

Feng shui is a Chinese philosophy that involves arranging objects to achieve harmony with nature. The idea is to harness energy forces and create a balance between a person and their surroundings.

The design of your bedroom is one of the most essential aspects of your home in terms of feng shui. Your bedroom is the one place where you want to feel entirely at ease, comfortable, and rested.

Choose a solid headboard

In feng shui, your headboard represents security and stability, particularly in your relationships. From a practical standpoint, a headboard is required to support your neck and head as well as to shield your head from the wall. Headboards also serve as a focal point for your room. You can add colour, pattern, and texture to your space through your headboard choice.

Remove books from your room

We all enjoy reading before bed, but if you're having difficulties sleeping, it could be due to clutter in your room. Books are considered to invigorate our minds because they are dynamic energy, move your book to a home library to increase your chances of a restful night's sleep.

Choose the right layout

While you're in bed, your bed should face the door but not be in line with it. Any doors that open directly in front of the bed should be avoided. You should avoid the feared 'coffin stance,' where your feet point towards the door, according to feng shui guidelines.

Make sure to divide your room

Feng shui principles recommend that you shouldn't use your bedroom for work, dressing, or anything that can excite your thoughts, however, this isn't always possible, especially if you live in a tiny space. A bedroom can be 'zoned' using drapes and curtains. They don't have to be drawn across a room to completely divide it; instead, they can add colour, texture, or complexity.

Top tip: Why not consider a separate walk-in wardrobe or home office?

Encourage restorative energy with plants

Decorating with plants indoors has exploded in popularity as people strive to reconnect with nature and the environment. Houseplants have always been an important aspect of feng shui and for good reason. When placed in a bedroom, they are said to bring growth, prosperity, and restorative energy.
