It is no secret that bunk beds are not only one of the most affordable and practical options for a child, but did you know they can actually help ensure your kiddo is getting a good night’s rest? Believe it or not, but the type of bunk bed you choose and the placement of it in your child’s room can make a huge difference when it comes to how well they are sleeping. Bunk beds are a wonderful way to save space, and they are also a fixture that kids will love. That being said, bunk beds can also provide poor feng shui, if you will, if they are improperly placed. For example, children may experience sleeplessness in the upper bunk because of the lack of support it proves, or even reduced energy in the lower bunk because of the presence of the upper bed on top. However, there are ways in which you can increase bunk bed feng shui, ensuring your child is getting the rest they need while still enjoying their beloved bunk bed.

Before we dive into some of the ways in which you can improve your child’s bunk bed feng shui, let’s take a brief look at what, exactly, feng shui is. A Chinese belief, the main thing you need to know about feng shui is that it works to harmonize people (no matter their age) with the surrounding environment. In a nutshell, the placement of certain pieces of furniture (ahem, a bunk bed) in relation to other items within a room should be done in a manner that encourages flow and creativity. Along the same lines, making certain decorating choices, such as having a framed picture of the family in their room, can actually provide calming energy. Now, let’s go over some of top ways to improve feng shui when working with bunk beds in a child’s room:

  • Test out the bunk bed to make sure it does not squeak, rock, or make any other strange sounds or movements when kids are getting in and out of bed
  • Make sure the bunk bed is sturdy and built tough. Some believe that wood bunk beds are the most durable, but that is debatable
  • Don’t forget about the headboard. When it comes to bunk beds, it can be easy to neglect certain ‘regular bed’ features, such as the headboard. However, headboards are integral to creating a restful and peaceful night’s sleep
  • Paint the bottom of the upper bunk with calming colors or use fabric to cover this blank canvas up. We recommend recreating the night sky or clouds in order to encourage good sleep patterns. One tip – avoid using too dark of a color, it is may make the child on the bottom bunk feel as though they are in dark water
  • Consider draping fabric over the bottom bunk in order to emulate a tent-like enclosed space. Be sure and ask your child’s opinion before doing this, as they may or may not like this idea. The intention is creating a feeling of security, which is particularly effective for younger children.
  • Pay attention to what colors you are using in your child’s room, in general. Typically, you should try and create the right balance of yin and yang, which means it should not be too dark or too bright

The intention of feng shui is create harmony and balance in the home, no matter what room it is. In order to make the best out of the space you are working with – such as a child’s room – do what you can to enhance its feng shui. And remember, Mom’s Bunk House offers a wide selection of both boys and girls bunk beds, so be sure and browse our selection today.
