BED IN LINE WITH THE DOOR:
EXPLORE FENG SHUI SOLUTIONS FOR A BED IN LINE 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. (This can be any door - the main bedroom door, the in-suite bathroom door, the balcony door or a walk-in closet door.) If your feet are pointing at a door, then your bed is in line with the door.

How can I remedy the situation of a bed in line with the door?
Best to move the bed so that it is not in line with the door. If this is not possible, apply these feng shui tips:
  1. Your bed has to have a solid and high footboard (especially if the bed is in line with the door to the bedroom.)


  2. You need to place a piece of furniture in between the bed and the door. An upholstered bench will work, and a small shelving unit with a solid back can also serve as good feng shui solution.
