Vastu Shastra - Add Perfection to your Homes

     Vastu plays a specific role in our Indian history while designing a house as everyone believes it brings wealth and health to our lives.

In Ancient times, not everyone is well educated to understand the logic behind science, to make them understand in a simple way Lord Vishwakarma introduced the concept of architecture with science in the name of 'Vastu'.

Most of the people in our country follow Vastu Shastra before building a new house. They say Vastu in construction harness nature's positive energy and bring happiness and riches in our lives.

Vastu Tips for Home

     The concept of Vastu Shastra is based on five central elements of our nature - earth, sky, water, fire and air. Balancing all these five nature elements provides a well-balanced environment and generates positive vibes in the house.

Vastu for Main Door

  • As per Vastu, Main Entrance should be in a positive place to induce good luck to the house owner.
  • If you want to locate in the north wall, then North-East direction is the best, and a window nears the north-east corner.
  • If you want to locate in the south wall, then South-East is auspicious; and along with this, a door in the North direction brings good fortune.
  • To locate the main door on the west wall, then north-west is more suitable as per Vastu.

Vastu for Living Room

     We can construct a living room in East or North directions. It is believed that a Living room in north attracts money and improves the health of the entire family.

  • The ideal place for the kitchen in your home is the south-east direction, which is a favourable direction for the fire element.

  • Other than these directions if you construct kitchen in other places, it will ruin the relationships drastically between family members.
  • Wash basins and kitchen drains should be present in the north or north-east direction inside the kitchen.

  • Guest's bedroom should be on the East side of the house.
