How to create a simple and relaxing bedroom with Asian furniture
Your bedroom is your refuge from the rest of the world, so naturally it should be a place that brings you inner peace and tranquility. You should enjoy being in your bedroom and cherish the time you are able to spend in the one room that is solely dedicated to you and your well being. It is important to spend the time picking out the right furniture for your tastes and arranging your room in a way that promotes positive energy, inspiration and passion.
If you like the look and feel of Oriental and Asian furniture, there are many options to create feng shui and positive energy in your bedroom. Invest in well-crafted bedroom furniture sets and eco-friendly furniture designs. Here are 6 easy steps to choosing the perfect Asian furniture and making the most out of your bedroom space!
Tip 1: Keep work space and living space separate.
Try to avoid having your work desk and computer in the same room as your bed. It can be hard to relax and rest your mind if your work is constantly staring you down. If it is not possible to keep these two spaces separate invest in a Shoji Screen. This piece of Asian furniture can hide items in a room and is also a beautiful piece of art.
Tip 2: Place your bed in a “commanding position.”
Put some thought into where you position your bed. It is best to have your bed as far from the door as possible, but where the door is still visible. Also, if possible place your bed against a solid wall. Following these guidelines are believed to give you a restful night’s sleep and a sense of security. In feng shui practices, it is believed that certain Asian furniture pieces, such as a canopy bed allows for positive energy to flow freely.
Tip 3: Decorate with warm, earthy tones.
Create an atmosphere of ultimate rest and relaxation by using calming, natural tones in the bedroom. Light blues and greens promote serenity and healing, while creams and browns are comforting. Avoid using too many colors that are bold and bright as these can hinder the relaxation process. Accessorize with throw pillows in reds and pinks for passion. Asian furniture, such as canopy beds, platform beds and sleeper sofas, can enhance the mood you’re trying to set.
Tip 4: Absence of clutter creates peace of mind.
Keep your bedroom space as neat and organized as possible. Many Asian furniture designers offer pieces that are both pleasing to the eye as well as functional with places for easy storage. For those who need even more storage space, there are Asian furniture pieces like platform beds with under the bed storage drawers that can easily conceal your things leaving your room well-ordered and welcoming.
Tip 5: Symmetry is important.
To get the positive energy flowing, place a nightstand and lamp on both sides of the bed. Hang artwork, photographs and decorations in pairs. This will create a sense of balance in your bedroom as well as in your life.
Tip 6: Set the mood lighting.
Your room should have different lighting for various times of the day. Make sure you get plenty of real sunlight in the morning to start the day off right, so open those blinds wide. In the evening, relax your mind and body with dim lighting which calms the energy in your room. Try having a few sources of light in your room from bedside lamps, table lamps and ceiling lights.
