A common question I get asked is 'Can I have a mirror in my bedroom?'
We see mirrors in bedrooms all the time in styling shoots, TV shows, magazines and I agree some of them do look amazing. But from a Feng Shui & sleeping point of view can be detrimental for a peaceful nights sleep as the energy gets bounced around the room. This also includes televisions as they are reflective when turned off.
"“Sleep is the golden chain that ties health and our bodies together.” — Thomas Dekker.
The best placement for a mirror is either in a walk-in robe or behind the bathroom door so it isn't reflecting your bed.
If you feel resistance and can't live without a mirror or TV in you bedroom I recommend you cover them when you go to sleep.
One of my lovely clients came up with a clever idea and installed curtains in front of her mirrored wardrobe hanging the track from the ceiling, which is a stylish way to screen while you sleep and open during the day.
If you are on a budget and have mirrored sliding wardrobe doors, simply pop them off the track and turn them around so the mirror faces your clothes. From here you can either give them a coat of paint or wallpaper. A solution if you are renting, you could use removable and movable wallpaper.
