The truth you need to know is that very few bedrooms have perfect feng shui. Unless you had the luck of designing and building your house with feng shui in mind, you will, most probably, have to face some challenges while creating a good feng shui bedroom.
Without any further introductions, let's go straight to the challenges you might encounter in a modern bedroom and find the best feng shui solutions for a good feng shui bedroom you absolutely deserve!
Let's start with the biggest, or most common feng shui challenges in a modern bedroom.

Mirror Facing Your Bed

You probably know that a mirror facing the bed is a big feng shui red flag, or a feng shui "NO!" for a good bedroom. Either a mirror from a closet door, a mirror from a piece of furniture or a free-standing mirror - you do not want a mirror to reflect your bed.

Bed in Line with the Bedroom Door

Be it the bedroom door, the door to the balcony/patio, the ensuite bathroom door or your closet doors, you do not want your bed in line with any of the doors in your bedroom.

Beams, Fan or Chandelier Above the Bed

The only thing you want above your bed when you sleep is a soft canopy. This is about it. Nothing heavy, nothing hanging, please do not hang wind chimes and bells above your head, this is bad feng shui.

Sharp Energy Directing at Your Bed

Be it from the nearby nightstands, from a further away piece of furniture, such as a chest of drawers, or from a sharp wall corner - be sure to neutralize all the sharp energy - sha chi - aiming at your bed.

Bed Under the Window

In addition to a good headboard, you always want to have a solid wall behind your bed. When you sleep under the window, your personal energy tends to get weaker over time, as it has neither proper support, nor protection.

Bed Under a Sloped Ceiling

When you spend time under a sloped ceiling, your energy is being heavily constricted and is under constant pressure. As nighttime is the only time when your body can do the deep work of regenerating itself, sleeping under a sloped ceiling restricts this work, thus one's health may suffer. Sleeping in a bed under a sloped ceiling can also contribute to emotional instability and low energy.

Bed With Access from Only One Side

A bed with access from only one side limits the flow of energy to your bed. While it looks like all is quiet and you are sleeping, your body is busy doing intense work and is using all the energy it can to improve your health.

When the flow of energy to your bed is restricted, your body does not receive the optimum help it needs. In addition, if you are in an intimate love relationship, having a bed with access from only one side can limit the open flow of communication between partners.

Bed Near the Bedroom Door

A bed close to the bedroom door is considered bad feng shui because doors usually have a strong flow or rush of incoming energy. This energy can be very unsettling and too active as compared to the energy you want close to your bed. In order to create good feng shui energy in your bedroom, you need to have the most nourishing, relaxing and sensual energy around your bed.
