Overhead beams are not considered favorable in Feng Shui and I am often asked what to do about them. Usually I try to place the furniture in a way where the beams are not directly above the sofa or chair. This works fine if the beams are not too close together. Beams in the bedroom are even worse as they are shooting poison arrows at you for the time that you are sleeping in your bed, which is normally between 6-8 hours. That's quite a lot of time. If this is your case then you will need to do as shown above. The material will cover the poison arrows created by the beams and allow you to get a restful night's sleep.
