Among all the rooms the bedroom is your ultimate retreat. It is the place to unwind at the end of a tiring day. So, you have to make it calm and comfortable for a good night’s sleep. This blog tells you about the ways to do that. Scroll down for the details.
Have a free doorway
The bedroom is pivotal in making the bedroom more relaxing and comfortable. As per the ancient ‘vastu’ principles, it ushers great opportunities.
If you are constructing a new house, install them in a place where they can open fully. Remove everything that obstructs the door in existing construction. This will allow the positive vibes to flow and make the room more relaxing.
Make it free from clutter
Too many things in the bedroom make it cluttered. Remove the hips of books, magazines, newspaper, kid’s toys etc from the bedroom. There should be nothing on the bed except the pillows, bed sheet, and blanket.
Other than the wardrobe and the chest of drawers, there should be nothing in the bedroom. Build floating storage, if required. This will remove the chaos from the bedroom and make it more comforting.
Banish the electronic devices
Maybe you have to do some office work at home sometimes. Do it anywhere other than the bedroom. If there is a television in the bedroom, remove it immediately. You should not also carry the Smartphone to the bedroom and play games before sleeping. All of these emit electromagnetic radiation and disturb the sleep pattern. In case you are compelled to have those in the bedroom, be sure to switch them off at least an hour before going to sleep. This will make your bedroom a relaxing abode.
Get a comfortable bed
A comfortable bed goes a long way to make the bedroom relaxing. So, you must invest in a good mattress. Choose the bed sheets and pillow covers that give a soft touch to the skin.

Position the bed rightly
According to Feng Sui, never place the bed directly in line with the door. Keep free space to approach the bed from both sides. Also, have a side table on each side.
Positive energy continuously flows from north to south. Our body contains iron making it magnetic. So, never sleep with your head pointing the north. It should be in the south. This will prevent repelling of the like polarities and let you sleep peacefully.
Calm with colour
