Best Vastu Tips To Bring Wealth, Health & Happiness In Your Home

Vastu Shastra is an ancient Indian science. It was widely used by our ancestors while constructing houses, designing interiors, planning furniture, and so on.

Rules are given in Vastu Shastra that helps you live harmoniously with nature. It will ensure that the builder, building, resident, and his natural environment are in sync.

Vastu Tips for a Plot are as follows:

  • A square or rectangular plot with roads on all four sides is considered to be the best suited for house construction. In a gated community apartment complex, you cannot determine the exact plot on which your house is built. Therefore, ensure that the building is built on a straight road running east-west or north-south direction. It must not be on a curved path.
  • If there is a lake or a large water body within the complex, the building should be to the southwest of the lake.

Vastu Shastra for Constructing a House are as follows:

There are different levels for the home. The southwest corner of the house is higher than the northeast corner. The west portion of the house should be higher than the east, and the southern part should be higher than the north.

The roof levels must follow the same rules as for floors. If the house has a gabled roof of tiles or tin sheets, the slope of the roof should be to the north or the east.

The main door can be on any side depending on the orientation of the plot. However, north, east or northeast is considered most suitable. The doors should always open inside the house or the room.  The hinges should be well-oiled so that they do not make any noise.

Place windows opposite to the doors as it improves air circulation and ventilation.

The main switches, electrical meters, and generators must be in the southeast corner of the building.

Water sources such as well, tubewell, water tank, and so on must be to the northeast corner of the house.

Garages must be in the southeast or northwest corner of the house. When you park a car in the garage, it should never face south.

The porch or portico must be in the north or east side of the building. And the slope of the porch should be to the north.

The septic tank must be in the west or northwest direction of the building. It should not touch the boundary wall.

The rainwater must flow to the northeast or north direction.
