5 Steps to Feng Shui Your Bedroom

5 Steps to Feng Shui Your Bedroom

  1. Here are 5 steps to Feng Shui Your Bedroom. If you’re like me, just 3 days into our lockdown and we’re already realising that being confined to our home has us scrutinising every room. Not only am I cleaning and disinfecting every corner, but I’m looking at each room with an overly critical eye, how can I change it, rearrange it, update it, make it more inviting. My bedroom has become my retreat so I decided it was time to give it a Feng Shui make over.


Let’s keep the chi flowing and deflect negative energy from our bedrooms.

Step 1. Consider the positioning of your bed. Try to position the bed with space around it, away from the door and preferably not along a wall allowing space either side but ideally with the headboard against a wall. Your bed should be approachable from both sides.

Step2.  Carefully consider the colours. Get to know the Feng Shui colour wheel.

Earth tones will bring nourishment, protection and stability into your life. Feng Shui earth tones include light yellow, creams, green and beige.

Metal colours bring the qualities of precision, clarity and efficiency. Element colours include grey and white.

Pastel colours are believed to add peace, calm and restfulness. Consider decorating with light blue and pale pink.

Add a strong fire colour element for passion and energy. The Feng Shui fire elements include red, orange and purple.

Step 3.  Lighting: Avoid brash lighting or ceiling lighting over your bed. Instead, place side tables and lamps either side of the bed, remember, according to Feng Shui, decorating with pairs will create intimacy. Ideally, create soft lighting with candles, giving the room a warm glow and bringing Feng Sui fire elements into the bedroom.

Step 4.  Allow as much light into your bedroom as possible. Open your windows regularly, bring in the fresh air and pull back those curtains! Natural light will revive the energy in the room. However, if light is limited, using the right placement of mirrors can bring energy to the space and create more light.
