Bedrooms are super important in feng shui. There can be no good feng shui in the house if your bedroom has weak, unstable or negative energy. A bad feng shui bedroom will also weaken your personal energy, as well as have a challenging effect on the quality of your relationships.

Creating a good feng shui bedroom starts with finding the best placement for your bed, as well as knowing what placements to avoid.

Here are the 6 worst feng shui bed placements, try to avoid them at all cost. If you absolutely cannot, then explore the tips to minimize the negative feng shui impact of these 6 worst bed placements.


1. A Bed Under the Window

At nighttime your body needs strong support, as well as protection, in order to do its best with the work of regenerating itself. This is the reason a good solid headboard is highly recommended in feng shui. In addition to a good headboard, you always want to have a solid wall behind your bed. When you sleep under the window, your personal energy tends to get weaker in time, as it has neither proper support, not protection.


2. A Bed Under A Sloped Ceiling

When you spend time under a sloped ceiling, your energy is being heavily constricted and is under constant pressure. As nighttime is the only time when your body can do the deep work of regenerating itself, sleeping under a sloped ceiling restricts this work, thus one’s health may suffer. Sleeping in a bed under a sloped ceiling can also contribute to emotional instability and low energy.


3. A Bed Close to the Bedroom Door

A bed close to the bedroom door is considered bad feng shui because doors usually have a strong flow, or rush of incoming energy. This energy can be very unsettling and too active as compared to the energy you want close to your bed. In order to create good feng shui energy in your bedroom, you need to have the most nourishing, relaxing and sensual energy around your bed.


4. A Bed Under A Beam

The only thing you want above your bed when you sleep is a soft canopy. That’s about it. Nothing heavy, nothing hanging, please do not hang wind chimes and bells above your head, this is bad feng shui. Anything heavier than a piece of fabric above your bed will create oppressive/heavy energy which will, sooner or later, manifest in your daily life.


5. A Bed Aligned with the Door

Traditional Chinese feng shui school masters say that a bed aligned with the door resembles a coffin that is always taken away feet first. Not the most appealing image. Feng shui energy-wise, what is happening when your feet are in line with the door is that you lose your energy at night/ your energy gets weaker, as it is not properly contained, so to speak. In feng shui, doors serve as energy connectors between different areas, thus they always have a sort of pulling energy (in order to connect, you have to kind of pull the two energies together, right?) If your bed is in line with the door, your energy will be constantly pulled at night.


6. A Bed Facing A Big Mirror

A mirror facing the bed directly depletes your personal energy when you need it the most: at nighttime when your body is doing most of its repair work. A mirror facing your bed is also said to bring the energy of the third party into your intimate relationship.
