The bedroom has long ceased to be just a place to sleep. This is an island of peace that reliably shelters you from the hectic world. Recharge. Meditate. Balance yourself.
The bedroom symbolizes our world order. This is the most important area of the house in the philosophy of Taoist practice of space exploration. Better known to the world as Feng Shui. According to her philosophy, any changes in the bedroom space will affect your mood.
With warmth and care, we share the basic rules of Feng Shui for any bedroom!
Bed – Center of the room
If the layout of the room allows, position the bed correctly.
The headboard symbolizes stability and support. It should not be a long solid wall, and the other three sides should remain in free space.
If possible, avoid placing the bed under low beams, soffits, and sloped ceilings.
Last but not least, do not position the bed so that your feet are in front of the door.
Decluttering and living in minimalism are one of the most popular trends not only in design, but also in psychology. The Feng Shui of the bedroom supports the rule: “the less things under your bed, the easier it will be to sleep.” Even slippers left under the bed can give a signal to “move” a tired mind.
Therefore, the first thing after setting up the bed, think about where things will be stored. Ideally, this should be an isolated dressing room, or hidden storage systems built into the walls.
Gadgets and Electrical Appliances
The decluttering rule also applies to electronic devices. The fewer there are, the more productive relaxation will be, faster recovery and deeper sleep.
TVs, audio systems, game consoles, and computers are all preferably moved to other rooms, leaving an alarm clock and books in the bedroom.
In general, this message received the name of “digital detox”. Conscious relaxation away from devices and going online. Focus 100% on your emotional background.
Of course, it’s hard to imagine a bedroom in which a bed stands alone. Even if it is by all rules of Feng Shui.
Most likely, you will want to add a number of decorative and functional elements. How do you arrange them?
Bedside tables are strictly symmetrical. This is generally one of the key rules for all Feng Shui zones. Asymmetry has a repulsive effect that is best avoided.
Cabinets, if possible, should be integrated into the wall and made as invisible as possible.
Place the armchair near the window so that there is an open opportunity to contemplate.
About Decor and Palette
Carpets, paintings, and other decor, according to the rules, are important to select according to the palette and materials. The best are those that turn to nature, natural shades.
Works of art are best placed at eye level – so they fulfill their aesthetic function and saturate you with inspiration much more effectively.
Bulky sculptures and installations are best placed outside the sacred relaxation zone and placed in the living room or on a spacious terrace. But miniature figurines or elements that are personally associated with peace and warmth for you – leave them in sight.
Of course, all the above are just a set of rules that you can rely on. It will help make the space less congested, which in the long term will affect your mood.
But if the environment gives you strength, do not act “contrary to”, but transform the rules to suit your unique needs.
