To design a bedroom with the best Feng Shui, you’ll want to consider every aspect of the room.
The materials your bed is made of make a huge difference in terms of the energy you attract to yourself, whether you’re seeking to attract or stabilize a romantic relationship, or simply get a good night’s sleep.
For good Feng Shui your bed should be made mostly of wood, with either an upholstered or a wooden headboard.
In Feng Shui, Wood is the expansive element of growth, new beginnings and family.
Wood also nourishes the intensity of the Fire element, symbolizing your emotions, your passion, and your heart.
Metal beds, by contrast, set up conflict in your bedroom. Metal symbolizes an incisive, “cutting” energy that’s necessary when logic and order or at stake. But these qualities are diametrically opposed to the soft, intimate energy you want to cultivate in your bedroom!
In addition Metal beds are often designed with bars that can trap people and pets, and may have dangerous sharp projecting angles (“sha” Chi).
Use wood and soft materials for most of the furniture in your Feng Shui bedroom, and feel the energy transform.
In this particular picture, the headboad plays an additional important role by shielding the sleepers’ heads from the windows.
Whenever possible, however, always position your bed against a solid wall.
