Love It or Hate It? A Mirror Facing the Bed

After I rearranged my bedroom recently, a friend of mine said with a wink, "Oh, so the mirror's facing the bed." I hadn't even thought about that arrangement until she called it out. While my boudoir is a bit too small to try to keep the bed out of full-length mirror's view, there are many couples who find it advantageous to "reflect" on events in this room. What's your take?

Yeah, it's bad feng shui to have a mirror in the bedroom if it's located so that when you're in bed you'll see yourself. I guess that's mostly because it might freak you out if you wake up in the middle of the night and see yourself.

I have a book about feng shui and it says its not good to have a mirror in front of the bed. And your feet pointed to the door while you sleep. My bedroom is weirdly shaped so I have no choice in both of these.

the bedroom in this picture is to die for :) i don't think that having a mirror facing the bed is smutty- sometimes it's the only possible place to have it. especially in the bedroom pictured, as having a mirror above the fireplace is just standard behaviour! it's not like having a mirror on the ceiling! now that would be something to debate :) i agree i hate those all mirrored wardrobes which take up the length of the room. but i have a mirror on one of my wardrobe doors exactly for the reason mentioned above by Angela, as you have the tendency to leave the door open and it looks untidy :(

I don't care about the mirrors but having a fire place in the bedroom would be cozy and sexy!

Nothing worse than mirrored closet doors that face the bed. Hated that apartment.

I have one that's above my dresser on a side of the bed but not one facing. It depends on the person, the size and style of the mirror and the room I think. I'm agreeing with bellasugar here.

this is really bad feng shui.... culturally I grew up knowing this is a no-no.. you can lose your soul.

Creepy, I wouldn't like it. I also thought there was some feng shui thing about not having a mirror directly facing the bed. In any case, I do have a mirror, but it's definitely not facing the bed. So definitely no chance of watching the action as it happens.

I have a full length mirror on the inside of my closet door, which i leave open. It's sort of...parallel to the bed? lol not really facing it, but mine is like yours I think. My tiny apartment bedroom, theres nowhere to put the bed where you can't see your reflections. The boyfriend loves it.

It depends on the room and the placement. I have had rooms where I used mirrors to reflect light to make them look bigger and eneded up having one face the bed. I have also had rooms that are teeny tiny so no matter where the mirror was it was facing the bed. Now if you have a mirror on the ceiling, thats a different story entirely...

Buh nuh nuh nuh nuuuuuuuh.... ohhhh yeah. Cue the Barry White. I don't mind a mirror here and there, but those closet door mirrors — the ones that take up a whole wall — make me think Penthouse Forum. Not for me.
