How to position your bed for good bedroom feng shui

Because your bed is the biggest (hopefully!) and the most important piece of furniture in your bedroom, it is very important to follow a good feng shui bedroom layout. Positioning your bed in the best feng shui spot for your bedroom will create better energy in your space, and you will be the one to benefit from it!

How do you find the best feng shui spot in your bedroom? Does it require a lot of guessing work or are there good feng shui bedroom layouts that you can just follow in any bedroom?




While each bedroom feng shui energy is quite unique because of the dynamic between the placement (and dimensions) of windows and doors, there are still several good feng shui bedroom layouts you can follow to assure a good foundation for your bedroom.

Let’s look at the 3 best feng shui bedroom layouts, understand what makes them so, as well as define variations of each good feng shui bedroom layout.

Why is this important? Well, because sometimes you might not be able to position the bed exactly as shown in the diagrams below, so it is good to know the extent to which you can modify each good feng shui bedroom layout.

Here are 3 Best Feng Shui Bedroom Layouts

#1 Feng Shui Bedroom Layout

The #1 good feng shui bedroom layout is with the so-called feng shui commanding position of the bed. A bed in a feng shui commanding position is placed diagonally from the bedroom door and has a solid wall behind it.

It has a good solid headboard, good grounding energy on both sides (the nightstands do not have to be identical, not at all, you can be as creative as you fee like but be sure the bed is supported/grounded on both sides.)

Having a rug to further ground the energy of the bed (and the whole bedroom) brings even more strength to this powerful feng shui bedroom layout.  

Notice that the other large piece of furniture – a big chest of drawers, an armoire, etc –  is not on the side, but rather at the foot of the bed.

This is very important if you want to keep the energy in your bedroom balanced. Now, of course, I know that not all bedrooms are that easy to deal with and there are many details that can prevent you from re-creating this exact feng shui bedroom layout.

Are there variations of this #1 good feng shui bedroom layout?

The only variation that will still keep it as the best feng shui bedroom layout is the positioning of the big piece of furniture.

It can be placed on either side of the bed, but it will have to be balanced by another piece of furniture at the foot of the bed, as well as a focal point on the side of the bed opposite the heavy piece.

The bed does not have to be in the center of the facing wall, it will all depend on the positioning of windows.

As long as the bed is diagonally from the door, has a solid wall behind it and space on both sides of the bed, you can be sure this is a good feng shui bedroom layout.

#2 Feng Shui Bedroom Layout

The second best feng shui bedroom layout has the door to the side but the bed is still further away from the door, has a solid wall behind it and good grounding energy on both sides.

Notice the biggest piece of furniture is again balancing the energy well (visualize a triangle between the two nightstands and the chest of drawers, this shows you the best furniture layout for a bedroom).

#3 Feng Shui Bedroom Layout

The third option of a good feng shui bedroom layout has the bed on the same wall as the door (or the nearby wall), but with the bed being well protected and grounded.  

If this is the layout that is most suitable for your space, be sure you leave as much space as possible between the door and the bed, while still allowing enough room for the second nightstand (the one on the side further from the door.)
