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 decor solutions for a good feng shui bedroom you absolutely deserve. Be it a bedroom above the kitchen, a bedroom under the bathroom or a bed in a studio apartment, be sure feng shui has tips to help you out!
A bedroom over the garage is not the best feng shui set-up, and if you find yourself not sleeping well I would suggest you seek the advice of a professional feng shui consultant in your area, as the cures have to be specific to your environment & surroundings.
As a general rule, bedroom over the garage is not good for two main reasons:
1. Garages have a lot of moving, "in and out", unsettling energy, which is the opposite of the energy you want in the bedroom. As there are no boundaries in the world of energy, a bedroom over the garage has a very unstable energy foundation and will not promote good relaxation and sleep, as well as a sense of stability in one's life.
2. Parked cars will emit radiation.
Feng Shui Tips for a Bed Under the Window
Why is a bed under a window considered bad feng shui?

Feng Shui Tips for a Bedroom Under the Upstairs Bathroom
A bathroom located above the bedroom is not the best feng shui set-up.

Feng Shui Tips for a Bed Aligned with the Door
Why is a bed in line with a door not good feng shui for my bedroom?
Traditional Chinese feng shui school masters say that a bed aligned with the door resembles a coffin that is always taken away feet first. Not the most appealing image. Feng shui energy-wise, what is happening when your feet are in line with the door is that you lose your energy at night/ your energy gets weaker, as it is not properly contained, so to speak.
In feng shui, doors serve as energy connectors between different areas, thus they always have a sort of pulling energy (in order to connect, you have to kind of pull the two energies together, right?) If your bed is in line with the door, your energy will be constantly pulled at night.
What exactly do you mean by "a bed in line with the door"?
The easiest way to explain the feng shui notion of a bed in line with the door is the following: lay down in your bed and see if your feet are pointing at a door.
