Bedroom Feng Shui Mirrors
A mirror facing the bed directly depletes your personal energy when you need it the most: at nighttime when your body does its repair work. A mirror facing your bed is also said to bring the energy of the third party into your intimate relationship.
What a "Mirror Facing the Bed" Means in Feng Shui
A mirror facing the bed means a mirror that reflects your body while you are in bed.
How to Remedy the Situation with a Mirror Facing Your Bed
If a free standing mirror is reflecting your bed, then it is easy - just find a different spot for it.
If you have mirrored closet doors, the best solution I have seen with many clients is to do a good job with draperies/curtains that can be closed at night. It can look as if you create window covering for another window. In the daytime, you get all the light and freshness for the bedroom that mirrors can provide, and at nighttime, you close the curtains that cover the mirrored closet doors.
Another solution is to just remove the mirrors/replace the closet doors. Have seen that done well many times with homeowners, but certainly not worth it when you are renting.
If you have a piece of furniture that has a mirror built into it and you just cannot reposition it, look at creative solutions. If the mirror can be angled in different ways - just angle the mirror so that it does not reflect the bed at night, and you are done!
If the mirror is fixed, you will just have to play and be creative. What can help you the most, as well as look the best with your bedroom decor?
It can be a beautiful flower arrangement (real or artificial), a small stack of books with appropriate titles for the bedroom, or a free standing piece of bedroom art covering the mirror - it is up to you to define what can cover the mirror the best way so that you do not see yourself in it at night.
More Thoughts About Mirrors in the Bedroom
Let me share just a couple more thoughts about mirrors in the bedroom. Generally, big mirrors are not recommended, feng shui-wise, in the bedroom, as they bring the energy of the feng shui element of water, and a strong feng shui water element in the bedroom attracts/creates the energy of sorrow.
Now, this does not mean that you cannot have a mirror in the bedroom. If the mirror is not reflecting the bed, and it is not of overwhelming proportions as compared to the room, then the mirror should be OK for your bedroom, feng shui-wise. It is also okay to have very small mirrors in the design of your headboard (notice I say "very small"), but definitely not good feng shui to have a mirrored headboard (or a mirror above your headboard).
