Peaceful Bedrooms with Feng Shui

The bedroom is one of the most important parts of the house, after all, this is our most private living space where we retreat to rest, find peace and refresh for a new day. The decoration of the bedroom also plays a big role in whether all this happens or not. The ancient Chinese teaching of Feng Shui, which is also increasingly accepted in the West, offers various suggestions for the layout and decoration of the whole house, including the bedroom. If you want to add the peace of 'Ying & Yang' balance to your life, you can start with a few changes in your bedroom.

This principle, whose basic principle is a way of life based on energy, and which believes that colors, directions, all living and non-living beings spread the 'chi' energy, is shaped by using the flow of 'chi' correctly in daily life. Feng Shui is not a home decoration fashion, but it is believed that the changes you will make in your home ensure a positive flow of energy, keeping bad energies away and bringing balance to life.

Let's learn together how to decorate our bedrooms with the energy of Feng Shui.

Prefer Relaxing Colors

Natural tones such as off-white, cream, light brown provide maximum relaxation. You should keep attention-grabbing colors and patterns to a minimum, for example only on pillows.

Position the Bed Correctly

The quickest change you can make to bring peace and harmony to your bedroom is to change the position of the bed. You should choose a location where you can see the whole room, and be careful not to turn your back to the window or door. This will eliminate the feeling of being 'threatened' during sleep. It is believed that if the foot of your bed is in line with the door, it also spreads bad energy. Your bed should also have a solid headboard, but you should choose a fabric model with soft corners, if possible, because according to Feng Shui, models with metal rods interrupt the flow of energy.

 

Attention to Symmetry

We mentioned that Feng Shui creates a balance, and you can best achieve this with a symmetrical arrangement. Like two bedside tables, two night lamps, two pillows and two armchairs. In this way, you can ensure the harmonious flow of 'chi'.

Nourish Your Senses

Soft-touch, natural fabrics such as satin, velvet and cotton should be preferred for both bedding and curtains. You can use essential oils and a diffuser to stimulate your sense of smell. Lavender and jasmine are calming scents, and cinnamon and ylang-ylang are scents that increase sexual energy. For your eyesight, you should turn to natural earth tones as we just mentioned.

Take Technology Out of the Door

All technological devices such as television, tablet, phone, which we spend a lot of time in our daily lives, should be outside of your bedroom. In addition, since these devices radiate their own energy, they cause disruption of the flow of 'chi'.

Use Your Walls Correctly

In Feng Shui, mirrors are believed to reflect energy and distract you during sleep. If you must have a mirror in your bedroom, you should position it to reflect your favorite object. The painting and large photos you will hang on the wall also trigger the feeling of being watched, you can try hanging a nice patterned rug instead.

Avoid Large Furniture, Sharp Lines

It is very important that your bedside table is rounded so that your face is not turned into a sharp corner during your sleep. High wardrobes and furniture will also make you feel like you are 'stuck between them' while lying in bed. Feng Shui teaching also says that there should not be a bookcase in your bedroom, if there is a bookcase, you can minimize the feeling of 'cutting' by placing the books horizontally rather than vertically.

Take a Distance from Plants and Water

Plants usually bring peace to the place they are in, but Feng Shui experts talk about the fact that the 'Yang' energy of plants is very intense, thus disrupting the energy balance. The biggest taboo for the bedroom in Feng Shui is the water element. It is believed that nothing of the water, not even a painting of a seascape, should be in this room, otherwise it would cause financial losses.
