Your bed is the most important piece of furniture, you probably know that by now. If not, read all about bed and bedroom feng shui to be easily convinced!

Do you know how to choose a bed with good feng shui, though? And actually, what makes a good feng shui bed? Here comes all the help you need. Study this feng shui checklist carefully, write it down and go shopping for a new bed without a worry.

1. Bed Style & Materials. It is easy to determine the size of the bed you need, but what about the style of the bed? And the bed materials? Should you go for a wooden bed? And how about that bed with a beautiful ironwork headboard?

Yes, there is an overwhelming variety of bed choices out there. However, feng shui makes it really simple to choose a perfect bed.The best material for a bed is wood. Any style works as long as you have breathing room under the bed.

This leaves the beds with storage options and the very low beds out of the good feng shui beds category. Easy.

2. Bed Headboard. A good headboard is a must for a good feng shui bed. Best feng shui headboards are the ones that are solid and made from wood, or the upholstered ones, as they have a very good combination of solid, but also gentle and supporting feng shui energy for you and your bedroom. Do not choose a bed with a headboard made of iron bars unless you really miss the good old days in prison or hospital (bad joke, but gets the point across!)

3.  Bed Mattress & Bed Linen Colors. There is a variety of mattresses on the market, choose wisely and invest in the one that will promote best sleep and relaxation. The better you sleep at night, the better your health during the day, this is really simple. Do not buy used mattresses, this is bad feng shui. Best colors for your bed linens are the so-called skin colors, combined with the decor colors you love in your bedroom.
