Feng Shui bedrooms are one of the three most important factors affecting the overall Feng Shui of an apartment or house. After all, here we spend a third of our lives. And therefore it is important to identify the quality of Qi which affects the sleeping person.
Here we are not talking about complex formulas, but about the competent layout of the bedroom and the placement of the bed according to best practices of Feng Shui. Indeed, even if the Feng Shui master chooses the most ideal spot in the bedroom to place the bed, the designer can nullify all his efforts worsening the quality of qi in the room.
Feng Shui Bedroom: Perfect Room Shapes
Close to a rectangle or square rooms are ideal. In this case, the energy of the room is stable.
However, this rule is relevant not only for choosing a room for sleeping but also for work. After all, negative qi in rectangular rooms will not be as aggressive as in rooms of irregular shape.
Shapes of the bedroom that Feng Shui Recommends Avoiding
Avoid round, triangular, trapezoidal, L-shaped.
The qi of the round room is too intense, especially for sleeping. Such a room is more suitable for negotiations than for sleeping.
In the L-shaped bedroom, the corner of the wall creates a flow of aggressive qi. This situation can be easily corrected by constructing a wardrobe room in the available nook. This trick will align the shape of the room.
Obviously, the angle gives rise to a Sha Qi flow and modifies the quality of energy in the room. Here it doesn’t matter how magnificent the energies in the room were and what kind of view opens from the window. After all, Feng Shui of the room is already down the drain. In this case, you may need to install a cabinet to extend the wall. Alternatively, you can round the wall during the repair phase.
In a triangular room (or of any other irregular shape) qi is unbalanced.
You can correct unbalanced qi by placing the bed parallel to the walls. This will ensure stability.
Feng Shui in the Bedroom Depends on a Properly Installed Bed
The window behind the head of the bed
With this position of the sleeping place, the balance of Yin (dream) and Yang (activity on the street) is disturbed. The window behind the head creates an imbalance and disturbs the calm. However, this rule can be leveled if, during sleep, your windows will be curtained with blackout curtains.
Sleep is a Yin process. It is opposing to activity. That is why the bedroom in Feng Shui should have calm energy. The ideal position is the head of the bed against a blank wall.
It is important to observe the following requirements, not sacrificing them even for the sake of favorable directions in which you want to orient a sleeping place (calculated according to the Gua numbers). It is unacceptable to turn the bed head to the corner.
In this case, all the benefits of a favorable direction are nullified by the flow of Sha-Qi directed straight to the head of the sleeping person.
Ceiling ledge or beam above the berth
As a rule, this can lead to health difficulties and create pressure at work.
Is Legs Facing the Door Sleeping Correct for Feng Shui?
It is believed that only the dead people are carried forward with their feet. And Feng Shui is skeptical about this belief. The sense is different: an intense flow of Qi is directed from the door to the bed. The solution is simple: move the bed to the side so that the door does not look directly at you. Or while sleeping, close the door to the room.
If we are talking about the front door to the apartment, then this statement generally loses all meaning: as a rule, a layout where you could see the front door to the house lying on the bed is very rare.
The Position of the Bed with Your Feet to the Bathroom
This type of layout is not recommended for the same reason as sleeping opposite the door. If it is not possible to move the bed, install a screen between the bed and the door. In this case, the screen height should be higher than the door.
Bed Reflected in the Mirror
And the statement that the mirror opposite the bed is a taboo is another myth. It is based on a Chinese proverb: “A mirror in front of the bed will make healthy lay sick.” If you are too spleeny, then you may be frightened to see your reflection asleep. However, this superstition has nothing to do with Feng Shui. And it does not affect anything. Checked!
Bedroom in the Basement
The main factor for the bedroom (it may sound strange) is the presence of light here during the day. The dark room is not suitable for the bedroom, as it does not contain enough Qi and is not suitable for anything other than a pantry. It doesn’t matter how magnificent the energies of flying stars are and in what direction your bed will be oriented. Qi just won’t get here. It’s like a TV that is not plugged to an antenna cord: it doesn’t matter which channel it is tuned to.
Open Shelves of Bookcases in the Bedroom
An open shelf does not “cut” space, no matter what books tell about it. Therefore, you can use them in the design of the bedroom in the way it suits you.
It is great when the bedroom opens onto another spacious room. In this case, Qi can accumulate and calm down before you get into the bedroom.
Bed under Beveled Ceiling
The Qi in such a room is unbalanced. As a rule, children sleeping under a sloping ceiling grow up moody and restless. The room can be fixed by turning the beveled part into a wardrobe. If the layout does not allow this, it is better to sleep under a higher part of the ceiling than under a bevel.
Doors opposite each other
With this arrangement of doorways, Qi is aggressive under one condition: if the distance between the bedroom doors is small. Otherwise, there is no cause for concern.
