Feng Shui Bedroom (Make Your Bedroom Relaxing & Romantic)

A bedroom – without a doubt – is one of the most private areas of a home. It’s a room that only a selected few have access to; furthermore, having a feng shui bedroom is vital and that’s because unlike some other areas of home, a bedroom serves two – essential – purposes.

The first purpose of a bedroom is to provide you with the most relaxing and comfortable sleep so that you’re able to efficiently manage day to day tasks and responsibilities.

The second purpose of a bedroom is to provide “that privacy” for romantic and sensual pleasures. However, mostly, the second function is performed first and the former one later 😉

Now, since a bedroom serves dual purpose, we’ve divided this article in two major sections. This’ll ensure that you’re able to grasp everything related to bedroom tips and nothing becomes overwhelming.

The 1st section of this article reveals to you the do’s and don’ts of bedroom (which you can apply to all bedrooms). Make sure that you read all the tips and apply them.

The 2nd section of this article reveals the other set of bedroom tips; these tips will help to boost romance and sexual pleasure in your life (apply these to couple’s bedroom only). Hence, if your life is lacking “that sexual drive or romance”, then go ahead and apply these too.

Feng Shui Bedroom

So, without any delay, let’s begin the ride and have a look at all the do’s and don’ts of feng shui bedroom.

Feng Shui Bedroom Guidelines (For Every Bedroom)

Bedroom Tips – 11 Things You MUST FOLLOW

  1. Make sure that the bedroom is big, comfortable, pleasing, luxurious, sensuous, inviting and passionate.
  2. Wooden beds are the best; make sure that they are of high quality wood.
  3. Buy a bed with a solid wooden headboard.
  4. Place the bed’s headboard against a wall.
  5. Place the bed in such a way that you can see bedroom’s entrance.
  6. Make sure there’s sufficient room on either side of bed to get in and get out.
  7. Place identical lamps on either side of bed; this represents equality.
  8. Hang paintings portraying happiness, enjoyment and good times.
  9. Make sure that the bedroom receives ample sunlight and fresh air.
  10. Use bedroom colors such as pink, brown, beige, yellow, cream, sand, lavender, tan, peach, violet, coral, bronze, butter-cream, raspberry, gold, rust, salmon, honey, burgundy, earthly red etc.
  11. Make sure that you select high quality, natural and luxurious linen bed sheets, pillow covers, quilts etc.

Bedroom Tips – 16 Things You MUST AVOID

  1. Avoid clutter in bedroom (in fact avoid it everywhere).
  2. Avoid placing bed right in front of bedroom’s door.
  3. Never align a bed to any corner of the bedroom.
  4. Avoid bed placement in front of bathroom door.
  5. Avoid having AC vent directly behind the bed.
  6. Never place bed under a beam or below a staircase.

  8. Avoid metal beds; also avoid beds with storage.
  9. Don’t buy bed having “vertical bars” design headboard.
  10. Avoid sharp edges of dressing table or other furniture towards bed; as a remedy hang multifaceted crystal ball between bed and the furniture.

    hi can i ask…

    i am starting to pick wallpaper for my house…. I am married.
    and personally have a liking towards victorian style…

    was just wondering would flowery wallpaper in the living room or bedroom affect our marriage? appreciate you share some insights

  • Hi,

    Flowery wallpaper is a good thing. Just make sure that the wall paper must make you feel positive and happy at all times. Also the colors should be as per feng shui (more on that @ http://www.fengshuipundit.com/feng-shui-colors/)
    and no thorny plants wall papers.


  • Liana Kestelman


    My walk-in robe has entrances on either sides into the bedroom and apparently creates circular Qi flow
    what is a creative way to stop circular Qi flow?

  • Wow! That bed really looks gorgeous.. I don’t think there should be any issues.


    • 星询

      Hi so is ok for me to put the headboard against the wall instead of the side against the wall right? Thanks !!!

  • “While standing at the door”.. You mean you’re facing outside or towards the house?

    • 星询

      it mean while I am standing inside the house facing the main door outside the door.

      https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/81f7776a760a83dca7890d3669f0bc830dd5ec61e6caff96487525662fc4ff04.jpg Had attached the direction for your reference.. and my own inputs while reading your sights and learning fengshui. do share some insights or any opinion.

      1)Where would our bed be more suitable? we are staying at the master bedroom. my husband gua no. 3 and mine is 4.

      2)where would be suitable for altar?

      3) as door is directly align with window what should i do as remedy?

      thanks thanks..
      As I am still a newbie towards fengshui not too sure if i apply them correctly.

  • Hi Liana,

    Place a mirror such that the Qi bounces back from the mirror into the bedroom; make sure that the bed (or any part of it) is reflected in the mirror. You can get help of a local feng shui consultant to achieve this.


  • LAUjr


    The doors of the masters’ bedroom and toilet is facing my bed. Our room is quite small so wherever I place it, the doors are still facing my bed

    How can I remedy?

    Thank you

    • Hi,

      You can hang multifaceted crystal ball or you use curtains. I’d suggest to get help of a local feng shui consultant to achieve that.


  • Yes, you can do that

  • John

    Hello thanks, but why should I remove all laptops, phone and tv from the room and I love blue bed sheets and use them a lot, should I stop that because am married and I have a bathroom door facing my bed in my room is it bad johnnwamadi@yahoo.com thanks

  • Hi John,

    The electronic equipment are known to cause disturbed sleep and numerous other issues; check this link @ http://www.lifehack.org/articles/lifestyle/why-electronics-dont-belong-your-bedroom.html

    Blue is too cool color and can impact sexual desires.. if you want to use blue color sheets then try to put some other element with appropriate colors..

    yes a bathroom door facing bed isn’t good. Try to have a partition or curtain there.


  • Nardia Isherwood

    Hi my bedroom has windows on every wall besides south (where door is) and east wall. The brick work walls are red. It is rectangular in shape and a large size. What can I do to make this room better? Any guidance is greatly appreciated.

  • Hi,

    Which side of the house does the bedroom is located?


  • Kanika Aswani

    This is by far the best feng shui info I have come across. Thank you for this.
    We will be moving into our new apartment in a couple of weeks – both of us work from home. We planned to keep our work desk in our bedroom since there is no other space avaliable and this is the biggest room in the house. The desk will be facing the window – will be on the left side of the bed. There will be a significant distance between the bed and desk (about 5 feet). Can I do anything here to enhance the work and not let this interfere with the romance and relaxation of the bedroom. Thank you.

    • Hi Kanika,

      Thanks for all the appreciation. Please send me a layout of your home (with North marked on it). That way it’ll be easier for me to assess the house.


      • Kanika Aswani

        Thank you for your response.. Here is a hand drawn layout, since I don’t have a proper layout with me.
        1. I think my kitchen falls in the NW part of my home.. (not fully sure) This worries me now..
        2. The main entrance shares a wall with the toilet. What can I do to reduce the bad energy here?
        3. Sea in the SE..good or bad?
        4. Study desk in the master bedroom?
        Please advise.. On what changes can I make to the whole plan (if any) to get the best out of this house..
        Really appreciate you time.


      • Kanika Aswani

        Thank you for your reply.
        I have attached a hand drawn layout of the house.
        Now as I have read through more articles I realize that our kitchen might be in the NW of the house.. Is there any remedy for this?

        1. How can we keep the work desk in the bedroom and still maintain a good healthy romance and relaxing vibe of the room.
        2. Can you give some insight on the gas position and overall kitchen plan?
        3. Our Main door shares the wall with a toilet. What can we do in this case?
        4. We have the Sea in the SE.. Is that a good thing?

        Grateful for your help. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6ba6ebfd889079702cdf5a51312c02476540b57a4bb541da2589b1ecae521c53.jpg

      • Kanika Aswani

        Hi I have tried to upload a layout of my house several times here but it keeps disappearing from the comments section. Is there another way to get in touch with you.
        Thank you

  • lady

    I hope that you can help me out with my bed placement situation. My Kua number is 2, lucky directions are West, Southwest, Northwest, and Northeast. Unlucky directions are East, South, North, and Southeast. I’ve come up with 3 scenarios for bed placement, however I am not sure if lucky directions take priority over the general taboos, or if the taboos should be followed first.

    See image: (http://imgur.com/a/D8OED)

    Option A: Bed is pointed West, but would be under the window and which would weaken my chi. This is concerning for me especially since I already feel as though my life force is weak in general. I’ve read that placing a sturdy headboard and heavy curtains would help, but it won’t “cure” the problem.
    Option B: Bed points South, against a solid wall, with access on both sides. However, South is my “Six Killings” direction.
    Option C: Bed points West, but is placed against the south wall. This restricts access on both sides, and the head is not supported.

    How do you determine which option is most beneficial or has the least negative effect? When do you follow your lucky directions over general bedroom rules and vice versa? Are there any ways to neutralize the effects from unlucky directions? I have read several sites that basically say to avoid placing a bed under a window, and to avoid unlucky directions at all costs. Thank you.

  • Gloria Rios

    I came across this site, and by far, it’s the best, most simple to understand because of all the detail. So happy I got here!
    My bedroom is on the north/northeast end, I live with my boyfriend, what are the best solutions and colors please? I currently have dark wood furniture, mustardy colored curtains, burgundy quilts, and flowered comforter with burgundy/red and bits of green, I want to change to just a white comforter, and white sheets too, Please help, with any suggestions. Also, I know I’m not supposed to have a beam right above bead, but in positioning the bed this is the best possible. The beam is right in the middle of our bed above us (vertically) what should I do?
    Thank you so much!

  • Hi,

    Thanks for all the appreciation.

    Here’s a link for help on colors: http://www.fengshuipundit.com/feng-shui-colors

    For the beam, you can get help from a local feng shui expert; he can place clips in the beam to greatly reduce the ill effects of beam.


  • Have replied on FB

  • Hi,

    If I were in your place, I’d choose Option A; that’s because I’d sleep with a window behind me rather than sleeping in inauspicious direction. However, a lot depends upon the other factors too e.g. a beam overhead or a toilet behind the head area etc. I’d suggest you get a local feng shui expert to help you place the bed appropriately.


  • Ragini

  • Debolina Dutta

    Can I put a Buddha portrait on south wall overlooking the dining table

  • I think that should be good until some rules aren’t violated. Here’s a link for help on such rules: http://feng-shui.lovetoknow.com/Feng_Shui_Buddha_Location


  • ABCD

    hi, i searched a lot over the internet about bed placement a lot. some say face west and east not good ( geo movement blood flow to brain?) some say good. some say north is death position. some say north good. some say south good ,some not good. so confused. some say don’t let bed lean on toilet wall.
