Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese way of arranging things in the surroundings for a favorable flow of energy, known as “qi”. From choosing the right colors to arranging the furniture, follow these tips to create a “zen” atmosphere in your kid’s bedroom.
An excellent bedroom for the kids should have the yin and yang balance. That is, the room shouldn’t be in extremes of color; not too dark and not too bright. The bedroom color should fit the child’s taste and personality. If you want to use children wallpaper, or fototapety dla dzieci in Polish, it shouldn’t be of bright colors or have a busy design; because this over-stimulates a child which affects his/her central nervous system and disturbs his/her sleep.
Experts recommend using pastel blues, pinks, or greens to create a relaxing atmosphere, as these colors are healing and soothing in the world of feng shui.
According to a feng shui expert ad holistic interior architect, Anjie Cho, there is an ideal placement of the bed to promote good sleep, known as the commanding position.
The bed should be positioned where you can see the door with the headboard just against the far wall. Don’t place it directly in front of the door; but rather, just across the room, diagonal from the door. This commanding position is said to help with those who have sleep issues because it puts the kid in command of the room as they can see who’s coming. Furthermore, it is important that the bed isn’t placed directly under a window.
Feng shui experts say that bunk beds are not great for kids because they will sleep too close to the ceiling, compressing their energies. However, if you are short on space or your kids really want bunk beds, choose those that are made of wood, instead of metal. More importantly, the beds should be stable and sturdy. The overhead part of the lower bed should be painted in a nice color to create the impression of a bigger space and hang some mobiles to allow a favorable flow of energy.
Involve your kids in choosing art to decorate in the room that depicts their interests, whether in sports or other hobbies, or their own artwork. If your kid has trouble sleeping, however, does not hang an artwork that is fast-moving imagery, like transportation motifs or crashing waves.Leave a Comment
