Feng Shui Bedroom Layout Tips That Anyone Can Do

Feng Shui Bedroom Layout resized 600

Millions of people love seeing beautiful pictures of fabulous bedrooms that you would love to live in. There are magazines and websites dedicated to just that.

The size of the bedrooms, the shapes, colors, furniture and overall experience...

But what is the best way to layout a bedroom?

In today's episode of Ken Lauher TV, I answer that exact question. From the best position and placement of the bed to the major items that you should include in a bedroom that will offer you an oasis from the day's chores and to-do's.

For those that are looking to better understand where to position your bed, here are the three command positions of a bed. When you are laying in the bed, you can see the door but you are not in direct line of the door nor are you positioned on the same wall as the door.

Hi Ken: 
I have a question regarding mirrors in my bedroom. I have a huge mirror at the top of the headboard of the bed, this mirror has almost the same width of the bed. Is this issue affects my romantic or any other aspectrs of my life? I started reading your articles and like them very much. 
Thanks a lot for you help.

I have a hard time with my bed placement as my bedroom door is situated right in the center of the wall it sits in. So anyway I move my bed, its in direct line of the door. I do KNOW however that when I had my feet going toward the door, like I could be just slid right out the door - I STAYED tired, so I moved it to another wall where my feet were still in line with the door, just not directly facing it, the tiredness stopped. I just don't like the shape, size, or anything else about my bedroom. Its very hard to "feng shui" it. Our room is 14 x 16, I know it sounds like a fair size room to others, however, the way the door sits, and then I have a 6 foot dormor on the left side of my wall, then on the third wall directly in the center is a window. So there's really only one wall I can put my bed against.

Well my bedroom is small. The door is in the travel and helpful people section and the only solid wall is from Travel and Helpful people to Romance. So if the bed is against a solid wall it is parallel to the door. To the left of the door is a 5 ft. closet. The 
other two walls have windows. So the bed either has to be in front of the door or against a window. If the bed is in front of the door there is no room for anything in between. The room is 9 by 10 feet.

My bed is situated towards the same wall of door. The other wall is of bathroom, can I pace bed towards the bathroom wall?

The main door is correct for where my bed stand, but the bathroom door walk into our bed. Is it a problem, there is no other way I can place our bed.

If you are saying that the bed is on the same wall as the door, then that is not ideal and should be moved to the other location.
Posted @ Wednesday, October 10, 2012 8:33 PM by Ken Lauher
Delea, Not ideal but not as much a concern as being in direct line with the bedroom door.

my bedroom has a floor to ceiling window onto the terrace on the fare side. It also has a long hallway in the actual room for the bedroom 
I have placed my bed on the right hand side wall of the room in the middle and yes I can get around my bed on both sides. But I don t see the door, just the hallway entrance. I really can t position my bed any other way in that room. I do have a solid headboard( brown wood)Have clear transparent white drapes and dark brown on each side of these. Have brown bamboo floor maps on each side of the bed and 2 night tables ( brown and white) My linens are white with beige throw pillows. I have been having lots of intestinal problems. Please help

How can we improve our wealth and luck. I have our bedroom positioned well and we feel content when in that room. Our entrance is on the south but we use a secondary door which faces North? Our kitchen is on the south easr side of the house. We have 2 families living in the space and cannot change much about the added clutter brought into the space.

Asian Lady, 
Thank you for reviewing my articles and sharing your comments. Due to the number of challenges you are experiencing, I recommend a 1-on-1 consultation where you can share photos of your space and we can get on the phone or skype to discuss the situation, remedies and action items to help you get unstuck and experience progress. Visit the "Work With Me" link and select the 1-on-1 consultation option to review what it is and what the fees are.

Great to hear that you feel comfortable in your bedroom. However, if the chi or energy does not flow well into the house or apartment, no matter what you do inside will have very little impact on your current situation. As a result, it is best to have someone review all of your space and not just the bedroom. If you are serious about learning the story your space is telling and how to overcome certain areas of your life or your situation, I recommend you review my 1-on-1 consultation option. Click on the "Work With Me" link in the top navigation and select the 1-on-1 consultation option to learn more. That way we can review your entire space and create a custom action plan that will meet and exceed your goals and dreams.

my bedroom is very small. The door is in the travel and helpful people section and the other wall is the bathroom wall how do i place my bed position?

It sounds similar to the diagram above excluding the bathroom wall. You have 3 options for a command position in the diagram. Review those and see if you're able to position your bed in one of those positions.

Thank you for the comment. Based on what you described, it sounds like your bed is in a command position. You could place a mirror in the hallway to better see and reflect the door if possible.  
Regarding the intestinal problems, you may want to remove any items under the bed if you have anything there.  
I would also recommend a 1-on-1 consultation to where you can then send me photos of your space and we can discuss what story your space is telling and how to set it up to better support your health and overall goals.

Thanks for the comment and question. 
Sometimes mirrors built into a headboard can provide a feeling of being out of date and lower a person's self-confidence because each time they see there bed, they want a different one but have not made it a priority. So keep that in mind. 
I also recently did an article on this topic. Visit http://www.kenlauher.com/feng-shui-tips/bid/91677/Mirrors-In-The-Bedroom-3-Feng-Shui-Myths-Uncovered to learn more.

I would like to know how I would go about implementing all the tips you have given into a studio apartment, as there is no clear bedroom or living room etc.?  
When it comes to studio apartments is there a specific place where one should place their lounge, for example, relative to their bedroom so to speak? 
Also is there a good place for the kitchen and bathroom to be relative to the main entrance? So when looking for a studio apartment to rent, I can make a better decision. 
I am battling to figure out where to start with this open plan living.
Posted @ Friday, April 05, 2013 6:27 AM by Alexandra
Thanks for the note and question. I offer a couple of different articles for studio apartments. Just do a search in the box on the right hand column to find them. 
Every space is different. There are some best practices that I mention in my eBook under Feng Shui products. But to truly understand all the different factors that go into the review of a space would require a true training course. 
The other option is to consider a 1-on-1 consultation. This can be to review an existing space or to review some of the options that you are considering to move into. This is helpful in that I can share with you what you may experience if you move into the space and if it is favorable or not favorable to move into. Review the "Work With Me" options to learn more.
