1. The bedroom shall not be too large.
The human body is an energy body which distributes energy to the outside all the time, just like the working air conditioning, thus the bigger the floor area is, the more energy it consumes. Therefore, if the bedroom is too large, your body immunity declines due to the excessive energy consumption and you will be in low spirit, poor judgment or even get ill unfortunately. The experts suggest that the preferred bedroom area shall be limited to 10 to 20 square meters.
2. The bedroom shall not be too small.
The master bedroom shall not be too small or less than 3 square meters because living in a too small bedroom will make you feel depressed. After a long time, your health, spirit and mood will be influenced.
3. The bedroom shall be in square layout.
The bedroom shall be in square rather than polygonal or hypotenuse shape because the hypotenuse may easily lead to visual illusion while the polygonal shape may easily lead to depression, thus increasing your mental burden. Over time, you may easily fall ill or have accident. Also, the bedroom shall not be long and narrow, which is adverse to ventilation.
4. Shall face the sun
Feng Shui masters indicate that the bedroom shall face the sun and the master bedroom shall be the largest. Living in a west-facing or east-facing bedroom with the large window, you may easily have the bloody disaster. The west-facing or east-facing bedroom always has the strong sunlight in the morning or afternoon, which will stimulate your nerves and affect your rest, leading to insomnia, impulsion and irritability. The south-facing or north-facing bedroom with the modest window is recommended. If you are living in a west-facing or east-facing bedroom, you should pull the curtain at the appropriate time.
5. No balcony or floor-to-ceiling window is better.
A bedroom with balcony or floor-to-ceiling window increases the energy consumption in sleeping, so you may feel tired or lose sleep since the glass structure is unable to preserve body heat, which is same with the fact that you may easily get ill if you sleep in the open air. The bedroom without balcony or floor-to-ceiling window is suggested or the balcony and the floor-to-ceiling window shall be equipped with the thick curtain.
1. Shall be bright in the daytime and dim at night.
The bedroom shall have a window for ventilation, which can make you refreshed in the daytime; at night, the window shall be covered with the curtain to block the outdoor night lights, so that you can fall asleep easily.
2. The bedroom door shall not face the entrance door.
The bedroom is a place of rest which shall be quiet and private while the entrance door is a necessary gateway for family members and friends in and out. Therefore, if the bedroom door faces the entrance door, the bedroom will not be quiet, affecting your health and wealth.
3. The bedroom door shall not face the bathroom directly.
The bathroom is a place for people to discharge, thus easily producing mephitis and moistness, so if the bedroom door faces the bathroom directly, it will be harmful to your health.

The kitchen is a place with fire, thus very hot and dry, so the bedroom shall not be next to the kitchen, especially the bed shall not cling to the wall of the cooking range. Otherwise, it will be harmful to your health and make your job performance unstable.
5. The bedroom door shall not face the mirror.
The mirror can reflect and it can reflect the evil spirit out in terms of Feng Shui. If the mirror faces the bedroom door, it will reflect the evil spirit into the bedroom and lead to bad luck.
6. The bedroom shall not be transformed from a bathroom.
The pipeline of modern buildings is constructed integrally, so the bathrooms in the whole building are located at the same place. If the bedroom is transformed from a bathroom, it will be between the bathrooms upstairs and downstairs which are unclean and moist. Therefore, the bedroom environment will be affected and your tranquility will be influenced once the closestool and the tap are used, which is harmful to your physical and mental health.
7. Things shall be neat rather than messy.
The clothing, furniture and furnishings in the bedroom shall be neat rather than messy. The expired newspapers, magazines or extra knick-knacks shall be sorted out and put away. Otherwise, your working order will be influenced and you may put upside down.
8. The bedroom shall be well ventilated.
The bedroom shall be well ventilated. Many people get used to closing the window of the bedroom for a long time to reduce the dust, which actually will lead to unhealthiness. On the one hand, it will easily make you get sick or make you suffer from lingering illness; on the other hand, it will make you become stubborn and wander in a dead end.
9. No mirror directly shining the bed.
The bedroom shall not have a mirror or reflective object which directly shines the bed, including the TV fluorescent screen, or you will easily have illusions, fall into a flutter or cannot sleep peacefully.
10. Less electric appliances is better.
The bedroom with too many electric appliances is called the fire room in terms of Feng Shui, which is harmful to body health. The modern medical theory also indicates that the electrical radiation does harm to human health. Therefore, the bedroom shall have as few appliances as possible; in particular, the TV shall not face the bed legs directly and the power cable shall be unplugged when not in use.
11. No droplight above the bed please.
In terms of Feng Shui, if the roof right above the bed is equipped with a droplight, it will bring evil spirit and harm to the health. According to the modern psychology research, if the roof right above the bed is equipped with a droplight, it will indeed give you mental hints, increase your mental stress and affect your endocrine, leading to a series of health problems like insomnia, nightmare and respiratory diseases. The roof right above the bed is suggested to be empty and the bedside floor lamp or table lamp with soft light is suggested.
