Feng shui bedroom design – ideas for the perfect layout
What is a Feng Shui bedroom? Feng Shui originated in China. Some people call it a philosophy of life, others call it “a science”. Whatever you call it, its principles incorporate the right elements and furniture placement to improve your health and well-being.

Feng shui bedroom – basic principles
One of the most important things you need to do if you want to arrange your bedroom in accordance with Feng shui principles is to get rid of the clutter. The Feng shui bedroom is a place to rest, so work equipment is out of place.
Feng shui bedroom – bed placement
Bed placement is the most important aspect of your layout. The right placement depends on the size of the room and the position of the window. There are many charts to help you arrange your furniture in the right way and we shall point out the most important rules.
The best position of the bed
The perfect placement for the bed in a Feng shui bedroom is diagonally across from the door. Such placement provides privacy as well as good visibility and allows you to see anyone entering the room.
You should not place your bed directly across from the door as your feet will point toward the door while you sleep. This is known as the coffin position and is the worst possible position. The bed should not be placed in front of or underneath a window as the flow of chi energy, which enters and leaves a room through the windows, will not allow you to have a peaceful rest.
