Using Mirrors in Bedrooms



Is it OK to hang a mirror in the bedroom? Especially a guest room?  I think it’s helpful for in room use for make-up or hair drying.


The first thing I say to my clients is if it’s not broke, don’t fix it! If you are sleeping well, then the yang nature of a mirror in the bedroom is not a problem for you. Some are very sensitive to the active chi of a mirror and thus sleep can be disturbed. Having a mirror in a guest room can be a  better placement, especially if it’s not used regularly for sleep.

Avoid placing mirrors directly across the bed and avoid especially large mirrors in bedrooms all together.

    Great advise! I cover my mirror with a towel before I go to sleep!

      Good point Mary Jo. I do recommend that option as well!

    i think i am going to have to move my full length mirror out of my small bedroom! it’s tough to find a spot for it – close enough to the closet & where I’m getting dressed, but not near where i sleep…

      Let me know if you do move it and if it makes a difference. Thanks for posting!
