Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese practice gaining recognition worldwide. It relates to building and object placement to enable positive energy flow, known as chi. When applied correctly, this energy is believed to bring harmony and prosperity to those that dwell there.

In a bedroom setting, Feng Shui dictates the layout, lighting, and other design elements. These rules also come with surprising exclusions, like living plants. Ultimately, positive energy placement is crucial to good Feng Shui.

Position your bed in the commanding position, farthest from the door, to feel in control of the space and promote mental growth. Ensure there is free-flowing space around the bed and avoid placing it directly in line with the door or facing a bathroom. Let natural light and fresh air circulate freely in the room.

6. Positioning Around Windows
