Top 5 Ways To Feng Shui Your Bed


Feng Shui Bed The Feng Shui of your bed, headboard and bed frame are critical to the overall Feng Shui of your space and daily experiences.

Below are the keys to evaluate the Feng Shui of your current bed and what to look for when purchasing a new bed.

I've found some common mistakes that people make or are making that may be having an impact on their relationships, health, wealth and more.

In this video, I share five great tips for you to consider when evaluating your current bed or to help you decide if it is time to purchase a new bed based on your goals and what may be best from a Feng Shui perspective to help you sleep better at night, attract prosperity, support your confidence and well-being and improve your love life.

1. Let The Chi Circulate: An appropriate bed should have legs , ideally on each corner, elevating it above the floor. This allows the air and chi to circulate beneath it, assisting with the healing nature of rest. This simple act of enabling the chi to circulate under the bed can help with fertility and also health issues.

   Removing all items from under the bed also helps the chi to circulate. If you need that space for storage – perhaps because you live in a small apartment with few closets – you can store linens and clothing in well-organized boxes or a trundle drawer. Avoid storing weapons, sharp objects or anything metal underneath the bed.

   When you place the bed in the room, it should be positioned so that the chi can flow around both sides. This article explains the command position, which is the ideal location for a bed. 

2. Bigger is not always better: A Queen bed is recommended over a King or California King size bed for two reasons. A King size bed leaves no room for upgrading. Since you’ve already reached the maximum level, the only way to move is downward, so your next bed might be to move to a single bed. .
   Additionally, a King size mattress typically rests on two box springs, which can suggest a separation between partners who sleep in the bed together.

3. Get A Proper Headboard: A headboard in Feng Shui represents protection. It not only provides the possibility of a relationship, it also affects the stability in an existing relationship. The headboard should be firmly affixed to the bed frame and made of one solid piece of material, either wood or fabric. Avoid rods or headboards that split in the middle.  

   Footboard: Footboards aren’t necessary. Men typically don’t like footboards; some say it feels like being in a coffin. If you do wish to have a footboard, it should be no higher than the mattress. A taller footboard can limit your travel opportunities.

4. Sleeping in a permanent bed: Murphy beds, futons and day beds provide a temporary feeling, and therefore are recommended only for use in guest rooms.

   A four-poster bed should fit within the space. I’ve seen many beds that really require a much larger space than what they have. Canopy beds are fine –again, space permitting. They may provide an added sense of protection for some. Keep the top of the canopy clean; don’t allow it to become a dust magnet.

5. Higher price does not relate to better Feng Shui:  The price of the bed is not always a reflection of good Feng Shui. One of my clients recently purchased a $20,000 bed, only to discover it provided very poor Feng Shui and could be a contributing factor in a troubled relationship.
   In other words, separate the price from the Feng Shui value of a bed. Purchase a bed that is comfortable and feels right to you. Regardless of cost, your bed should help you achieve your goal of a quality, restful night’s sleep, where you awake feeling refreshed and renewed.

Thanks Ken, I love this! I have been sleeping on a futon on the floor for years and this article has got me thinking! I have no circulation under the bed (no legs/base) and no headboard. Although my health is top notch and I sleep well the relationship and 'temporary' issues you discuss are ones I can relate to. Your article has moved getting a new bed up my list of priorities. Thanks again, great post.

This article helped me too! It may have saved me a lot of money -- we are going to buy a new bed in a month or so, and were going to upgrade from full to king size. Instead, we'll go with a Queen... less money AND better for our marriage!

Hi Ken, I have a bed placement issue that doesn't fit the command positions. Entry to the bedroom is the left corner of room(S). N wall has floor-length window in R corner and a closet is in same corner on E wall. So, E wall have closet on L and a bathroom on R. This wall would have no room for end tables and besides, water pipes are on the other side of wall, so that wall is out. If I put bed on N wall close to window then it is out of line of door by 1 foot. There would be no room for end table on R side of bed because of the window. Of course, W wall is out because door would cross bed. Any solutions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks much!

Thank you for the information Ken! I have a question, what is a cure if you have a king size bed that's on 2 box springs?

Hi Ken - This article is very helpful and I've rearranged my bedroom to have my bed in the command position and allowing the chi to circulate. I have one problem: my bedroom is rectangular and there's not enough space to allow for a headboard. Can you give me any alternative suggestions? Thank you!

Very interesting! Next you should write an article about how to counteract the effects of a bed with bad feng shui.

what is the difference between the bagua map and the personal gua number in terms of following which direction is best for you? the only command position in our room requires our headboard (bed) to be placed against the south wall but according to my gua number, south is disastrous for me. thanks!

my daughter's bed has a footboard. what can i do to cure it? thanks a lot
Posted @ Friday, May 13, 2011 11:16 AM by roschelle ora
Roschelle, There is not a remedy for if a person has a footboard other than getting a new bed. Having a footboard is not always a bad thing and can be based on it more about personal taste.
Posted @ Friday, May 13, 2011 10:54 PM by Ken Lauher
thank you very much for your quick response to my question. Now I am relieved.  
i have another question- how do i layout the bagua map on our second floor? will i consider the end of the staircase as the front door like on the first floor so i can align the knowledge, career and helpful people? or do i follow the layout on the first floor?  
and the master bedroom has a terrace. do i include it in the bagua map? thank you and have a nice day..
Posted @ Saturday, May 14, 2011 11:46 AM by roschelle ora
I have 2 doors in my bedroom. one in the front and one on the side (wall). 
I put my bed where straight from the front door also above the window.. 
is that bad luck?
Posted @ Thursday, July 14, 2011 2:24 PM by josefa
I love what I have read so far - now to my challenge. I find myself late in life living temporarily in a 32' x 8' motor coach with rooms so small will the bagua layout be the same will there be other special considerations to look out for?
Posted @ Tuesday, August 09, 2011 8:13 PM by Linda
Linda, Thanks for the note. Yes, the ba gua can be placed over each room regardless of size.

My husband and I sleep on a king size bed and this article has really got me thinking, is there anyway we can make this king size bed work out for us as this is a new purchase.
Posted @ Tuesday, October 25, 2011 3:58 PM by LP
is a tufted headboard with an upholstered lip all around it, and which affixes in the back on the wood bed, a good fengshui? There are tufted headboards that are one piece bu tthey do not look as nice. pls advise, we are picking a headboard now~

Tova, It sounds like it may be ok based on what I can gather from your description. Keep in mind that a queen size bed is best with a solid headboard that is firmly attached to the bed frame. To discuss further, I recommend you check on the Feng Shui consultation options including the 20 minute phone consultation to help you get your questions answered. Check out

Quick question about a headboard:  
I have a full size bed with a metal frame. I'm not in a financial position to get a whole new bed, but would getting a cheap wooden headboard be worthwhile in terms of improving feng shui? I'm not sure if there are ways to attach a headboard to a regular bed frame; so would not having it attached defeat the purpose of getting a headboard? Bottom line: better to make a change or keep things status quo? thankS!
