Feng Shui and Platform Beds: A Good Understanding based on Pure Common Sense

Recommended Posts

Sponsored Link
 

Dear Paula,


In my opinion, from a Feng Shui point of view the use of platform bed has more to do with "Commonsense Approach to Feng Shui".


In fact, it is literally - Commonsense under Feng Shui:-


1. Is sleeping on a platform, bad under Feng Shui?


In many parts of the world, many people do sleep either on the floor or on a platform. In particular, the Japanese, for example sleep on the floor which is quite similar to sleeping on a "platform" or flat-bed. Thus, generally there are no issues here since nearly a very high percentage of the Japanese population sleep on a flat-bed. Besides this "rich" country many less well to do countries also have citizens sleeping on flat-bed.


2. I was told that we must sleep on a raised bed so that qi can circulate under our bed? Is this true?


This has more to do with "commonsense" then Feng Shui. One good thing about a raised bed or a bed with e.g. 4 legs is that we can easily clean below the bed. Nowadays with lots of nasty virus or issues with them; it would be nice if we have the opportunity to be able to clean below ourbed.This will avoid or eliminate dust mites and other forms of virus.


Imagine having a platform bed. Most platforms are fixed and cannot easily be removed for cleaning. And if there are small gaps in the wood or say we shed our skin etc.. and these fall below into the bottom of the platform, we may not be able to clean them. Thus there may be a host of mites e.g. dust mites and other insects, crawing all over below the untouchable (below our bed).


Thus, as one can see, there can be an issue with having a platform in the long term. Even more so, if we carpet the platform. It is so much harder to maintain the carpeting or ensuring again no dust mites etc... crawling all over the platform.


Worse if we have young children. They can or may urinate orthey could seep thru the bed into the bottom of the platform which is out of reach. Childrenmay also eat sweets, spill drinks etc..


Thus, if we have simply a four legged bed, it is much more practical, should we want to ensure that the room is clean.


Warmest Regards,
Cecil

If you have the time, read thru this past thread to understand why, it is always preferred to have beds that has four "raised" legs versus sleeping on a platform bed.

Common sense says that:
1. Everyday, all of us shed millions of dead skin cells.
2. Installing a fixed platform bed means that we no longer are able to temporarily remove the platform bed to clean; below it.
3. Many platforms no matter how good the quality; will always have joints and not air-tight. Thus, not only dusts, but also our dead cells and even spilled liquids can fall through the cracks or joints towards the floor.

Common sense says that it is good to have space below the bed.
So that one can easily clean below the bed.

Many Interior Designers propose similar platforms with a studybtable similar to this one:B5E0D31B-DA67-4048-830F-C0C65753A622.thumb.jpeg.824f2ac7390b40079039a06155a89d16.jpeg

Sime even increase the volume / height of the platform to increase the storage area below the platform.
