How to Feng Shui Your Bedroom

It’s the room where you spend one-third of your life. So why not try to make it a little luckier by adding a feng shui touch or two?


  • Step 1: De-clutter De-clutter your bedroom. Pare down the knickknacks; clear off dressers; and move out the TV, computer, and any exercise equipment. Toss things associated with bad memories and repair or throw out anything broken. All can block positive energy, or 'chi.'
  • Step 2: Repaint Paint your bedroom in a warm skin color -- anything ranging from pale peach to chocolate brown. These shades create a sense of harmony.
  • Step 3: Position your bed To promote a feeling of security, position your bed away from -- but in view of -- the door. Try to arrange the bed so that your head isn’t too near a window, through which chi can escape. If the room is big enough, don’t place one whole side of the bed up against a wall: That can inhibit the free flow of chi.
  • TIP: Keep the bedroom doors closed at night, especially if one leads to a toilet -- you don’t want to 'flush out' any chi!
  • Step 4: Get some curves If you’re buying new furniture, choose pieces with curved or rounded edges. Sharp edges cut into chi like a knife. To soften square-edge furniture you already own, drape it in fabric.
  • Step 5: Create balance Create balance by placing paired objects around the room.
  • Step 6: Awaken to beauty Position a beautiful object so that it’s the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning.
  • TIP: When choosing pictures or figurines, pick images you hope to see come true in your real life.
  • Step 7: Air out the room Open the windows often to keep air -- and chi -- circulating. And don’t be surprised if things start to go your way.
  • FACT: Designers for the Trump Tower, MGM Grand, and the Getty Center all used feng shui principles.
