Vaastu is an ancient occult science that plays with the directions and the five basic elements of life ( earth, air, water, fire, and sky). When proper Vaastu practices are carried out, the cosmic energy it releases brings positivity to the surroundings. It is believed that following Vaastu tips while decorating your home will add prosperity and happiness to your life.
Here are some tips to implement Vaastu at your home:
Good ventilation and proper spacing
It is recommended to maintain proper ventilation the house and if possible throughout the building. Ventilation plays an important role in bringing positivity to the house.
Keep a water body
According to the science, a water body, like a small fountain or an aquarium if placed in the North-east direction of the house proves to be lucky. If you don’t have the space to keep either of these, a small earthen pot filled with water can be kept with some flower petals to serve as a decoration.
Direction of door is important
The door of the house is considered the gateway to all the happiness and positivity. It is therefore said that it should be constructed either on the North or the East. The South and West directions are to be strictly avoided. Another thing that you should consider is that the doors should open inwards not outwards.
Prefer south-east for kitchen
The Kitchen, more specifically the stove should be in the South-East or the North West corner of the house. The cook should be facing towards East or the North direction.
Avoid mirrors in bedroom
To avoid discord or fights in the family, Vaastu states that there should be no mirrors in the bedrooms. So, for example, if there is a dressing table in the room, then you should keep it covered.
Choose bright paint for walls
When you are considering painting the walls of the house, choose from primary colours like green, red, yellow etc. These colours will promote the overall wellbeing and health in the house.
Consider the shape of rooms
If you are looking to buy a new house, make sure of the fact that the rooms are either square or rectangular in shape. Oval or circular rooms are not advised.
Furniture should be kept away from wall
Especially for the room of a child, do make sure that the furniture’s are not sticking to the wall. This results in the disruption of the flow of positive energy.
Placement of study for better concentration
For the placement of the study, East, North East or North is considered the best. If the person who is working while facing the particular direction, it is said that he is able to concentrate better on the task at hand.
Height of ceiling
Make sure that all the ceilings are at least 10 feet in height. Anything less than 10 feet is considered inauspicious. 12 feet is an ideal height that is considered the best for the placement of the ceiling.
The dining room
The dining room should be located in the West part of the house. Rooms for patients or sick people should be placed in the south direction of the house.
Following these Vaastu practices definitely make a lot of difference in the ambience of a household. If there is no scope to make changes according to Vaastu in your home, you can use Yantras as a solution.
