If you enter your bedroom and are not greeted by positive energy and happy vibes then you definitely need to change something in your room! A bedroom should be constructed and decorated in such a way that it soothes your senses and relaxes your mind. If you feel that your room doesn't feel right, follow the tips written below and turn your room into a warm, cosy space, a place where you feel rejuvenated and replenished.
The main bedroom of the house, according to Vastu Shastra should be constructed in the South West corner. It should be larger than the other rooms. The south west direction represents element "earth", hence it is the dominant part of the house.
The bed, ideally should be made of solid wood and kept in such a way that the heads are in South or West directions. Avoid placing the bed in a corner.
Large bedroom furniture items such as almirahs, cupboards, shelves, display units etc should be kept in the South West direction. This is the "heavy" part of the room.
Vastu Shastra emphasizes that there should not be an overhead beam on the ceiling above the bed. If you have a beam there, it is advisable that you take steps to change the construction.
An important thing to remember is to avoid placing a mirror or a TV opposite the bed. Looking at your reflection while lying down is considered inauspicious according to Vastu. If you must have a TV on the opposite wall then you can consider covering it up with a cloth.
Gadgets and devices such as mobile phones, laptops etc should be avoided in the bedroom. If you are addicted to your phone (like everyone else) then you can take a small step by placing it away from the bed.
Bedroom walls should be painted in neutral colors such as white, ivory, ecru, cream. You can also use soothing pastels such as pale yellow, green and baby pink. Avoid very bright colors and stick to earthy tones.
Always keep your room tidy and clean. Broken decor items or clocks that don't work should be removed from the room.
The entrance door can be in any direction except South. Keep in mind that windows should be constructed in the North or East walls.
Entrance door should be a single door and open smoothly. Get your door fixed if it makes a creaking sound!
Avoid having a temple in the bedroom. Also you should not keep an aquarium or plants in the room.
According to Vastu, bathroom door should not directly face the bed. Also, when you are not using it, the door of the bathroom should be kept shut.
