Headboards deserve a very special mention in Feng Shui. They are important as they stand for stability and protection. The solid and quality headboard will provide you a sense of support and security. Also, it is believed that the headboard will improve the relationship between the partners.
I always recommend wooden headboards if it is a possibility.
Historically, they served to isolate sleepers from drafts and cold in less insulated buildings, and thus were made of wood, which is less thermally conductive than stone or brick. Wood is a natural element that features strength and warmth. Being the solid material, wood will give you a good backing and protection. You can also choose an upholstered headboard foe added style.The headboard should always be attached to the bed, and not to the wall. This will create the feeling of security when you lean your head on against it. It’s believed that a good headboard and bed itself for that matter, can improve the night sleep and lead to a better romance.
The storage headboards on which you can place objects you use before you go to bed such as a book or your cellphone, are not good option for your bedroom. Putting objects on the headboard can interfere with the quality of your sleep. For this reason stick to simple models.
In my profession as a Feng Shui Practioner, I have resolved 90% of sleep problems in kids and adults by simply suggesting to have a solid wooden headboard. A good headboard is one of the crucial elements of a good Feng shui bed. A good headboard will create strong and supportive energy for your bed, which provides for better sleep, as well as an overall sense of being supported in life. Needless to say, an overall sense of being supported in life results in happiness and empowerment in our day to day lives!
