A bathroom located above the bedroom is not the best feng shui set-up. An important factor to consider in looking for feng shui cures in this case is how busy the upstairs bathroom will be - how often do you plan to use it? Feng shui-wise, it is recommended in this case to keep the upstairs bathroom just for occasional use/ as a guest bathroom.

Another feng shui question to consider is the following: is the bathroom directly over the space where the bed is located? If it is, are there several other good choices for the bed placement in your bedroom?

These are the main points to consider when dealing with the feng shui of a bathroom over the master bedroom.

The feng shui bedroom and bathroom cures in this case depend on the feng shui bagua area of the house the master bedroom and the bathroom over it are located (see Bagua, or feng shui energy map for more info.)

Find out the main feng shui element needed in your specific area and look for creative feng shui ways to strengthen the needed element in a visually pleasing and decor-appropriate way. For example, if you know you need a strong fire feng shui element in your bathroom, no need to look for traditional Asian art with red colors. You can go for bright red towels or a luscious red wall color, a display of purple or red candles, etc, which will bring a strong fire element energy. Be smart and creative, this is always good feng shui!

Generally, you would like to keep the upstairs bathroom very light (in colors, fixtures, decor, etc) - literally create a very light feel/energy and avoid any colors that make its energy too grounded and heavy.

Sometimes, depending on the decor of the master bedroom, having design features on the ceiling (such as substantial crown moldings and/or the medallion around the ceiling light fixture) helps, as this creates another barrier between the two different energies.

More importantly, know that almost any so called bad feng shui problems have a cure to it, as long as you approach the situation with a sense of empowerment and creativity.
