DIRECTION OF THE BEDROOM AS PER VASTU
Southwest is the best direction for the location of Master Bedroom. Southwest direction represents the Earth element hence provides the stability and a solid foundation. It is most appropriate for the master of the house. The shapes suggested by Vastu are regular shapes like square and rectangular size and to avoid any cuts or extensions.
DIRECTION OF THE BED AS PER VASTU
# Bed placement should be with the headrest towards South as it is best direction to sleep according to Vastu. The sleep position should be such to bypass the earth electromagnetic waves since earth is a magnet. Earth’s electromagnetic waves flow from North east to South West. If we sleep with our head towards the South, it results in a peaceful sleep. East is the second best direction to keep your head while you sleep. As per Vastu, sleeping with head in north should be avoided.
# Placing the bed in corner with the corner adjacent to the wall can block the movement of energy. The headrest of the bed can be placed along the wall leaving a space around to move. The bed should not be placed across the main door of the master bedroom.
MATERIAL OF THE BED AS PER VASTU
Vastu advises to use beds made of wooden material and not use metallic beds as they may create negative vibrations. The shape of the bed should ideally be rectangle or square and not circular.
COLOR SCHEMES FOR BEDROOM AS PER VASTU
# Colors have an impact on our mood, psychology and health. Vastu suggests that light color bedroom walls helps you relax and ensure better sleep and peace of mind. Some of the colors that are suggested for bedroom walls are neutral and earthy shades like almond tones, beige, light and pastel shades of blue, light green, white and pink. Dark colors like black and dark blue should be avoided as they are associated with negative energies. Dark colors can upset the balance and affect the energy levels.
