I’ve just received a reader inquiry about Feng Shui priorities in a small bedroom. Bobby says,
“I’m going to be buying a new mattress and am trying to decide between a double and a queen sized bed.
“If I buy a queen-sized bed, I will only have room for a bedside table on one side of the bed. But if I buy a double, I am afraid it will be too small.
“I don’t have a lover right now, but I would like to attract a partner into my life.
“I am wondering what is more important, the extra space, or having two bedside tables?”
The most important thing in making a bedroom welcoming for two, is that there be space enough for two.
As Bobby knows, a queen-sized bed is best for a couple, leaving enough room for each person while keeping them in good connection through the night.
If a queen-sized bed means there’s no room for two tables and lamps, improvise with something like the photo above.
In this small bedroom, lovely hanging lamps illuminate each side of the bed, with very small shelves holding necessities like an alarm clock on either side.
This bedroom has a lot of other things going for it from a Feng Shui perspective: the colors, textures and materials, just for starters.
It’s a bedroom designed for love, and it all starts with the bed.
Thanks for writing, Bobby!
