8 Feng Shui Guidelines on What to Avoid in Your Bedroom

Your bedroom is one of the most important feng shui areas to consider. In fact, we often recommend that beginners start with the bedroom before moving on to the rest of the house.

It's often easier to focus on a room when you're new to Feng Shui, and looking around the room can be a powerful way to regulate your personal qi. You spend many passive hours in bed, so you are very receptive to any energy in the room.

It is also a more private area of ​​your home, over which you generally have more control, especially if you share the house with roommates or family members.

Here's our list of feng shui guidelines on what to avoid to make your bedroom as relaxing and rejuvenating as possible.

Bed Out of Command

Feng Shui Your Bedroom

One of the fundamental concepts in your room is the command post. A controlled bed can help you feel safe, protected, and rested. When your bed is out of control, you may have trouble sleeping or relaxing, and you may find your stress levels are higher.

To put your bed in the command position, you need to position it so that you can see your bedroom door lying on top of the bed, without being directly in line with the door.

This gives you the widest view of the room so you can see who is approaching. It also represents your knowledge of all the opportunities available to you.

If you can't handle your bed, you can fix it by placing a mirror somewhere that allows you to see the reflection of your door from your bed.

A Bed Without A Headboard

It may be modern and cheaper to not have a headboard, but it is not the best option from a feng shui perspective. A header provides support, as well as the connection between you and your partner (or your future partner, if you want to invite someone into your life!).

Look for solid wood or upholstered headboard, as these are the most favorable. Avoid headboards with holes or perforations. Watch out for headboards with bars, which can make you feel trapped.

A Mattress On The Floor

Typically you want your mattress to be on a bed frame, rather than directly on the floor (unless you are making an Asian-style futon). It is best to let the qi flow freely under and around you, as this promotes health and prosperity.

Having the mattress so low on the floor can also reduce your qi, while a mattress on a higher bed is more energetically and emotionally stimulating.

Clutter And Storage Under The Bed

If you have a mess under the bed, it also prevents the qi from flowing freely. It's especially important to avoid anything that is emotionally charged, like anything that belongs to an ex and anything that is nervous.

If you need to store items under the bed, choose soft sleep-related items such as extra sheets and pillows.

A Library Of Books

Books are great, but your bedroom is not the best place to store them. Books stimulate the mind and are not ideal for a dedicated bathroom. Instead, move the books to a more active (yang) part of your home and opt for more calming (yin) objects in the room.

Your Home Office

Feng Shui Your Bedroom

Ideally, it is best to avoid having the home office in the bedroom. We understand that having a separate room for an office is a luxury, but if possible, find another space in your home to prepare your office and work supplies.

This will help you stop working at the end of the day and relax before going to bed.

If you need your desk in your bedroom, do your best to create separate spaces for working and lounging in the room. You can use a screen or bookshelf to share space or even cover your desk with a nice cloth at the end of each workday to signal the transition from work time to personal time.

Exercise Equipment

Feng Shui Your Bedroom

Forget about two nightstands and lean the bed against the wall. Place a single pillow on the bed. If you are looking for love, a bed made for you is sure to solve the problem.

Dying Plants Or Flowers

This also applies to dried flowers. If you like dried flowers as decoration, you can put them in your home, but they do not energetically improve your home from a feng shui point of view.

Live, healthy plants and fresh-cut flowers can be a great addition to the room. They represent the element of wood, which is related to healing and vitality.

However, you should avoid the death of plants or flowers that have passed their peak. Dead or dying plants are not a source of healthy qi and, above all, you should keep them out of your room. Make sure you keep your plants healthy, refresh your flower water, and compost anything that is no longer fresh and alive.
