Children can use a bedroom in the West, North or East.
The eldest son can use a bedroom in the South.
A North-West bedroom can be used by a daughter or as a guestroom or by a newly wed couple wishing to start a family.
The bed should be in the South-West corner of the bedroom. There should be a solid wall behind the bed. The foot of the bed should not face the door of the room. One should sleep with head toward South or East only. The South gives longevity and the East ensures enlightenment.
Never place a mirror in front of the bed. If this cannot be avoided, keep the mirror covered when not in use.
Avoid doors in the South-West and South-East directions. Doors should be in the North, East and North-East.

Electrical appliances like TV, heater, iron etc should be in the South-East.
All heavy furniture like cupboards should be in the South and West. The cupboard containing cash, jewellery and valuables should open North.
Box beds are not recommended but due to paucity of space in modern house, they are being used. It is important that only soft clothes and bedsheets, pillows etc are stored in the box bed. Definitely no metal or electrical appliances should be stored in the box bed.
Do not have a pooja area in the bedroom. If a separate area cannot be given in the North-East of the house for puja, then a small mandir can be made in the North-East corner of the kitchen.
The bed should not be under a beam. If it is unavoidable, then the beam should run along the length of the bed and not the width. The best way is to close it by a false ceiling or by hanging a pair of bamboo flutes with the blowing side facing downwards from the beam with a red ribbon.
Wooden beds are the best. Avoid metal, iron or water beds. The bed should be straight and rectangular. Odd shapes are not suitable.
