5 Must-Follow Vastu Rules for the Main Entrance

A doorway is the entry point for family members and universal energy. This universal life force energy influences various life situation of people living in that home. North-East is the most beneficial direction. Therefore, the main door should face towards the East or the North-East direction.

Likewise, the direction of the entrances should be in such a way that, members of the house should face North-East or East direction when they step out. The doorway to the majority of homes is towards the East because the sun rises from the East. And it is the most favourable direction as per the Vastu.

Furthermore, focusing only on the directions is not sufficient. Always use superior quality woods for the main door of your home. It should also look superior as compared to other doors of the house. It is very important that we should avoid placing any decorative elements in front of or outside the main door.

  • Avoid things like shoe rack and dustbin completely outside the main door.
  • There shouldn’t be a washroom near the main door
  • Ensure the main entrance is well-lit
  • It is best to decorate your main door with eye-catching nameplates and auspicious torans.
  • The main door should open in a clockwise direction and ensure there is no animal status or figurines around it.

Vastu for Meditation / Prayer Room

A prayer room holds a special position in everyone’s life irrespective of various types of religion. Some homebuyers give equal importance to spirituality and other aspects of life. They prefer having a designated room for yoga, meditation and prayer.

Incorporating the best principles of vaastu for the meditation room is very important for spiritual growth, which will help an individual to go inwards and connect to a higher power of divinity.

The best direction to worship the divine is the North-East or East. According to the Vastu Shastra, the north-east direction is the corner of the divine. Earth’s magnetic energy originates in this direction. Therefore, this direction is best suited for all kinds of prayer or meditation.

If you find it difficult to position the prayer room in the North-East direction, at least ensure the door is facing toward that because of the subtle universal force. And the North-East direction will attract universal life energy, which is very much essential for one’s health and overall well-being.

When it comes to spirituality, along with following vastu guidelines for homes one should also follow favourable direction while praying or performing any spiritual activities.

  • Facing towards the East when you meditate will increase positivity
  • Create a sacred altar and decorate it with candles or incense sticks, as it creates a pleasant atmosphere inside
  • White, beige, light yellow or green are great colour options for a prayer room

Vastu for Living Room

The living room is the most happening place in everyone’s home i.e most of the activity occurs in this place. Ensure the living room is clutter-free so that it creates a favourable first impression when guests enter for social gatherings.

The living room should face East or North-East direction. Make sure heavy furniture is present only in the west or south-west direction of the living room.

When it comes to electronics and appliances, a South-East section of the living room is the right position as per Vastu. If there is a mirror in the room, ensure it is hanged on the north wall.

Your living room should speak your style, and the right colour scheme can help you make a good first impression whenever a guest visits your home. When it comes to vastu-compliant homes, there are specific colours for each room to help you drive in positive energy. It is best to paint the walls in a lighter color such as light pink, white, cream, beige and floral white. These are associated with different positive vibes such as purity, warmth, calmness, perfection, beauty, etc.

Vastu Rules for Bedroom

Vastu shastra shows tweaking your bedroom can enhance the quality of your relationship and drive positive energy, which can turn your fortunes around. Here are 5 tips to transform the energy ratios in your bedroom to help positively influence your sleep:

  • In order to attract good health and prosperity, the bedroom should be positioned in a South-West direction. Avoid the North-East or South-East zone, as it may cause health issues and quarrels among couples.
  • Ensure that you don’t place a mirror or television in a bedroom, as it attracts negative energy if it reflects you in bed.
  • Paint your bedroom in a neutral color, as it radiates positive energy. Avoid black colors.
  • Avoid having images or paintings that represents water, a temple or a fountain in the bedroom, as it could cause emotional outbursts.
  • Use soft lighting and burn aromatic oils to create an oasis of calm.

Vastu Principles for a Healthy Kitchen

According to Vastu, the lord of fire – Agni delivers the best results if it is placed in the South-East direction of the home. The ideal placement of the kitchen is the South-East direction in a home. In case, you are unable to implement in that direction, the North-West direction will work fine. Additionally, maintaining a balance between the furniture of the kitchen colour and the primary hue of the walls, will create the right energy and fill your kitchen room with positive vibes.

Vastu for the Courtyard: Cosmic Center of the Home 

In traditional homes, the courtyard is always situated at the center of the house, which is known as Brahmasthan as per Vastu. It radiates unlimited energy. This part of your home radiates energy in a huge way. The only best place to build the main hall, pooja room or the courtyard is the center of the house.

The courtyard should be clutter-free and the circumference of the courtyard should not have any sort of obstructions or built-up area.

The courtyard is a central, holiest and powerful place in the house. One must take sufficient care, while designing this section of the house, as all directions meet at this point and disperse positive energy in all directions.

  • Sleeping at the center of the house isn’t considered good
  • There should not be a beam at the center of the house
  • The courtyard should not contain beams, arches, staircase, storeroom etc.
