Feng Shui Bedroom Tips - How to Achieve Balance in the Bedroom

May 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 159

Out of all the rooms in the house the one that I get asked the most questions about, the one that seems to cause people the most Feng Shui problems is the bedroom. It is pretty ironic really that this is the room that causes people the most concern because it is the room where we should be at our most relaxed, our most restful and our most secure. The last thing we need when we go to bed at night is to be sitting in bed worrying about the energy in our bedroom, after all it's hardly conducive to a good night's sleep.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised though that the bedroom causes so many problems. One of the fundamental principles of Feng Shui is balance but when you have a room that is used for two activities at either end of the yin yang scale, sleep and sex, then where exactly do you start with the interior decor? Decorating the room in very pale colours is great for sleep but not so good for your love life if you both fall asleep every night before your head hits the pillow and red silk sheets and mirrored wardrobes may do your sex life a world of good but do you both want to be wide awake at 2am every morning?

The truth is that when decorating your bedroom you need to keep the word balance in mind. Above all the bedroom is a place for sleeping, our bodies need sleep to sustain us for the rigours of the day ahead and so the bedroom should primarily be decorated in pale colours and soft fabrics. Pale pinks, creams and light browns are excellent colours for the bedroom as they are not only yin colours but colours that represent love. Use these colours for most of the wall colouring, bedroom furniture, bed linens and floor coverings. They will form a soft backdrop to your bedroom creating a restful sanctuary to which you can retire at the end of the day.

Of course the bedroom is used for more than sleeping and a healthy and happy life is one in which you have an active love life with your partner. To add sparkle to your bedroom add high energy colours as accent colours. Paint a feature wall in red or bright pink, add red, gold or bright pink cushions and throws to the bed, place lamps at either side of the bed with dark red or gold shades. These bright additions are sure to create a special place that you and your partner can both love and enjoy.

Once you have the colour scheme balanced there are some basic principles that you can follow to ensure the energy flows naturally around the bedroom. Make sure the bed is pulled away from the wall as this allows energy to circulate around the whole bed. It also means that both you and your partner feel equal in the bedroom as you can both get in and out of the bed easily. Metal bed frames can disrupt the flow of energy so if your bed frame is made out of metal cover this in fabric and ensure head boards are made out of wood or covered in fabric as this means your head, the most vulnerable part of your body, is protected while you sleep.

Finally we come to the question of mirrors. These are often a necessity in the bedroom, especially if you want to make sure that your appearance is just right before you leave the room. However they do have the effect of speeding the flow of energy around a space and in a bedroom can cause problems with sleeping patterns. The best advice that I can give with mirrors is to have a mirror in the bedroom if you need one, but cover it with voile before you go to sleep at night. This will ensure that energy will flow around your room calmly and peacefully while you sleep, helping you to get the rest that you need to face the world another day.
