How to inject Feng Shui into your bedroom

The Chinese interior phenomenon — the name of which means wind and water — focuses on natural elements that will bring a peaceful atmosphere into your room. So, whether you’d like to create a space that stimulates your mind, or just want a better night’s sleep, read on to discover our top tips for injecting Feng Shui into your bedroom.

Choose the right bed

Your bed is the focal point of your room and, as reports show adults spend 7–9 hours a night sleeping (National Sleep Foundation), getting your bed right is crucial for a healthy Feng Shui vibe.

Most importantly, your bed should be somewhere your body can truly relax and embrace the benefits of sleep. So, it’s crucial that you choose a well-balanced bed (one that has space either side of it) that will allow you to connect with your personal energy and support your body while you sleep. As well as a comfortable and supportive mattress, you’ll need to pick a sturdy headboard — this can be either wooden or upholstered. Our pick is this Loire Headboard from Dormeo. Not only will its padded design support your back, neck, and head, but the range of fabric colours make it suitable for any bedroom theme.

Additionally, the bed you pick should have plenty of space underneath it to let the universal energy (Chi) flow freely around you. In general, it’s advised to avoid getting pre-owned mattresses and beds due to the unknown energy of previous owners.

Go with soothing colours

The best colour scheme for your bedroom is one that's soothing, as this will contribute to a restful and restorative night’s sleep. You can either take inspiration from crisp and clean neutrals and find a paint that reflects these, like this Dulux caramel latte paint from Travis Perkins. Or, you can follow the specific Feng Shui guidelines for what colour your room should be, depending on the direction it faces. For example, west facing rooms should use earthy colours alongside metallics. So, looking into this can be helpful if you’re undecided.

Discovering your Feng Shui birth element can also help you to narrow down the colours that will work best for your personal energy. So, if you’re struggling to settle on a colour, use this guide to Feng Shui birth elements from Know Feng Shui.

Close your windows and doors

At night, it’s important that the Feng Shui energy continues to circulate around your room, so closing all windows and doors will stop any of it from escaping. For the best night-time vibe, making use of blackout blinds or a good pair of curtains will contain the room’s Chi, optimising the energy flow. This is also important as safety is at the forefront of the lifestyle’s concerns, so ensuring people can’t see into your space more than you can see out is key. Additionally, closing all doors will make sure you’re the focus of the energy and that you'll receive the most benefits possible.

Use adjustable lighting

Feng Shui lighting focuses on balancing the amount of light and dark in the room to achieve the best energy. This can also be used to illuminate and tackle problem areas in your room, so it’s important that you get this right with a soft lighting effect. Having adjustable lighting options will help you balance out the flow of Chi while creating a warm and relaxing atmosphere and removing any opposing forces (known as Yin).

Both lamps and candles can help to achieve the right lighting levels. For the former, ones with dimmable bulbs, like this touch one from Iconic Lights, will work best. Candles can contribute a warm and healing feel — just be sure they’re toxin free so they don't intervene with the good energy.

When adding light to your room, avoid hanging lights and ones that cast lots of shadows onto walls (like fluorescent bulbs), as these are both considered to be unlucky.

Bringing Feng Shui into your bedroom can be the perfect solution for those struggling to find peace and relaxation. As well as giving you new décor ideas, following this theme is said to bring you health, luck, and success.
