Feng Shui 101- 10 Simple Ways to Create a Comfortable Bedroom

According to the ancient art and science of Feng Shui, your bedroom has a significant impact on your health and well-being.  It’s vital that you feel cozy and relaxed in the space so you can unwind from daily stress and sleep soundly.  When you invest in creating a comfortable bedroom you’ll reap the benefits of better health and a more balanced frame-of-mind.

10 Simple Ways To Create a Comfortable Bedroom

1- Quietness induces relaxation.  Sleep in a room that’s in a quiet area of your home.  It will usually be toward the back of the home, away from street noise. 

2- Connect to nature. A bedroom with windows allowing views of nature or a door leading outside helps you access nature which creates peacefulness.

3- Paint the bedroom with a warm tone rather than a cool tone unless you live in a hot climate.  The best colors for creating warmth are beige, yellow, and coral.  For hot climates blue, lilac, white and grey tones are preferable to create balance with the climate.

 4- Your bed is the most important area in the room. Make it as comfortable as possible. Choose a comfortable mattress.  If you’ve had your current mattress for more than seven years, it’s time to invest in a new one.  And add a down-filled mattress topper to make your bed irresistibly cozy.  If your budget doesn’t allow for a new mattress, a mattress topper is a great addition.

5- It’s important that you feel a sense of security in the space so you can relax. It’s best to choose a bed-frame with a headboard and a footboard so you’ll feel protected.  If your bed doesn’t have a footboard, you can place a bench at the foot of the bed as a substitute. If you don’t have a headboard, make sure your bed is located on a solid wall that doesn’t have plumbing behind it.

 6- Select the most sumptuous bed linens you can find within your budget. Mix and match them for fun.

7- Place extra pillows on the bed for comfort.  And a stuffed animal on the bed feels nurturing no matter what age you are.

8- Place a nightstand on either side of your bed. They don’t have to match, but they should be about equal in proportion.  If your room is small, placing one side of the bed 12-18 inches from the wall can replace a nightstand.

9- Make sure that what you look at while sitting in your bed uplifts your spirits.  This includes artwork, furniture, bookshelves, and wall color.

1o- Add a soft comfortable chair for reading or create an area with cushions for meditating if space permits.
