According to Handy, the master bedroom should be a place where you can sleep, relax, and unwind with your loved ones and in order to do that, it is important to maximize the feng shui of the bedroom space. In fact, when the bedroom space is arranged and decorated properly, it can help to cultivate positive vibes and eliminate negative energy too.
Tips & Tricks
Here are a few tips you can follow to boost the feng shui of your bedroom:
- Keep the bed in a command position – One of the best ways to improve the feng shui of your master bedroom is to change the layout of the space. The bed is the most important piece of furniture in a bedroom and keeping it in the ‘command position’ is essential. It simply means that you have to position the bed in the bedroom in a manner that allows you to see the entry door when you lie on it.
It is also important to choose a bed that has a fabric headboard with soft edges. Avoid headboards with bars or heavy cast-iron since they don’t allow you to relax.
- Choose a suitable color scheme – In order to promote peaceful vibes in your bedroom and enjoy restful sleep, it is necessary to decorate your bedroom with a suitable color scheme. Generally, mutated shades or skin tones are preferred and are thought to improve the feng shui of the bedroom.
These include shades of chocolate, creams, browns, off-white, peach tones, and more. However, ensure you don’t overdo it and paint the whole bedroom in a peach tone. Also, avoid the use of crisp white walls, accent walls, and wallpapers even though they might seem tempting.
- Decorate the bedroom with meaningful accessories – When decorating the bedroom space, it is important to consider accessories that will help to relax the five senses. For instance, soft and inviting fabrics such as satin, Egyptian cotton, and velvet are preferable for cushions, sheets, curtains, and pillows in the bedroom.
To invigorate the sense of smell, you can use essential oils such as jasmine oil and lavender in a candle or ultrasonic diffuser. To balance the sense of sight, you can opt for fiery accents such as pinks, reds, and oranges in moderation to counteract the more preferable earthy tones.
A white noise machine can be a good addition to stimulate the sense of sound and you can keep a glass of water with a slice of lemon in it to involve the sense of taste.
- Avoid elements that harm the feng shui of the bedroom – To turn your master bedroom into a sanctuary, you have to ensure you keep all technology-related devices and appliances such as your pc, smartphones, TVs, and more outside. Also, avoid hanging any large paintings or photographs above the bed. Instead, opt to hang a light and lowing tapestry.
Handy suggests you avoid decorating the bedroom space with too many houseplants since it can fill the space with too much yang energy. Also, avoid placing any mirrors in front of the bed. Finally, keep your bedroom clutter-free and organized. That means no excess furniture such as bookshelves or cupboards that make you feel oppressed.
