    Marriage can really get tough for some people, especially if they are not doing enough to keep the romance alive, but feng shui can help!

    Turns out optimising the energy in your bedroom can improve many facets of your life including your marital relations.

    According to Laura Cerrano, a New York–based feng shui consultant, “it’s not just about the physical presentation of the room and the accessories in it.”

    As is common in feng shui, “it’s important to have an emotional connection that aligns your intentions with your heart, allowing yourself to open up and feel the energy of the room.”

    She shared some tried-and-true strategies for improving the energy of a bedroom, specifically a bed, to bring luck and prosperity into your married life ahead of the Lunar New Year.

    n order to promote feng shui in marriage, you have to make sure you get the bed right.

    Make sure the bed is not pushed into a corner. The bed should be easily accessible from all directions.

    This promotes positive energy in the room.

    A king size bed might sound comfortable, but it can keep a couple far from each other, which should be avoided.

    No door should be open in the bedroom, especially during the night time, when you and your spouse go to sleep.

    It is not a good sign for your personal life, as it provides invitation for external influences.

    Plants and flowers have always been symbols of love, beauty and life and it would be beneficial for you to have some greenery in the bedroom or even the house.

    Have two of everything, as much as you can.
