Lighting is essential as it affects the natural energy flow in your home. Take a good look around — could your bedroom be brightened up with a new lamp? A lamp or a night light is the easiest way to introduce more light into the room so you can do daily activities more efficiently.

These lamps from BlvdEight can help you lighten the mood, create a warm and calm atmosphere, and invite positive energy into your home.

2. Decorate Your Space With Paintings

Paintings that reflect feng shui principles add a sense of peace and beauty to an area. Choose paintings that incorporate any or all of the five elements of feng shui — water, fire, earth, metal, and wood. Paintings of trees and forests depict the element of wood; those containing beaches, waterfalls, rivers, or lakes represent the element of water; those with candles or anything that has to do with flames depict the element of fire; while plants and mountains depict the earth element.

The wood element represents growth, health, prosperity, and abundance in feng shui, and is often associated with new life and new beginnings. It has active and masculine energy but also elements of receptive and feminine energy. There are several ways to express the element of wood through feng shui in your bedroom. Try integrating it through decorative wood elements, furnishings, and other wood structures.

4. Invite Positive Energy in With Indoor Plants

Indoor plants are a trend these days, which is good news from a feng shui perspective. Plants not only depict the wood element but also help improve indoor air quality. Choose plants with soft, curved leaves and avoid prickly or sharp plants like cactuses. Ensure you give your plant daily care and attention; taking care of another living thing cultivates compassion, which is also associated with the growth, health, and prosperity elements of wood.

5. Know Your Colors

Each of the five elements in feng shui corresponds with a direction and color. The direction of where your bedroom faces will determine the best colors and decors to use. For example, if your bedroom is facing east or southeast, which are tied to the color green, you can add an accent chair or a wall decor in green. As for the other directions, refer to the list below:

  • West and northwest: white, gold, and silver
  • Northeast and southwest: brown, yellow, and pink
  • South: red
  • North: blue and black

The goal of feng shui is to create a balanced space for positive "chi" or for energy to flow. Get rid of the things that negatively affect you and that no longer serve you. It's more than just about keeping a well-decorated home; feng shui is also about feeling inner peace. (That wall decor from your mother-in-law may look nice, but how does it make you feel?)

7. Detoxify Your Bedroom

The bedroom is your sacred space, so it is important to detoxify it, especially at the start of a new year. A bedroom that looks and smells good exudes an ambiance of freshness which, in turn, also helps you feel good.

To detoxify your bedroom, you can utilize aromatherapy and make sure to only clean your space using natural cleaners. Baking soda, vinegar, and essential oils are effective items to use. Avoid the use of chemicals when you can.

8. Move Your Bed

Feng shui has strict rules about beds — they should be placed against a wall, never underneath a window, and without any doors on either side. Your bed affects various areas of your life, especially your love life. A new bed clears out the old energy and makes room for someone or something new in your life. For those who have recently broken off a relationship, shifting your bed or getting a new one could mean attracting someone better. For those already in a relationship, it could mean rekindling the love between you and your partner.

When the energy in your bedroom is aligned with your own inner energy, it creates a harmonious space that balances the different elements around you. Incorporating the concepts of feng shui in the way that you arrange and decorate your bedroom can help result in not just a peaceful ambiance and a restful sleep, but in an overall improvement in your physical, mental, and emotional well-being as well.
