#1 Get a new bed
Your bedroom and especially your bed is where the both of you build a connection on a deeper and more intimate level. Always have a new bed – this symbolises a fresh start and energy. Don’t forget to sun the bedsheets too. It draws the Yang or positive energy from the sun. It is even better if a proper fengshui consultant can select appropriate dates and times to sun the sheets and set the bed.

#2 Have couple pictures around
In your new matrimonial home, it’s good to have pictures of you and your spouse, or a symbol of the both of you together. Don’t, however, place your weddng photo above your bed or on your bedroom because that could affect your sleep and it is a potential hazard if it ever drop down on both of you while you are resting. You should also not place the photo image in front of a mirror.
