• Money and valuables should be kept in an Almirah or safe facing north.
• If north is blocked it can be cured with the help of regulators.
• If north of any house is blocked it blocks prosperity.
• A boring or tube well in south is very harmful for finance.
• A pit or under ground tank in south is also very harmful for finance. Certain pictures of god goddess and proper placement of mirrors brings financial gains in the house.
• Water flowing from north to east is very good.
• A water fountain in the north east part of the house or factory is very good.
• An aquarium with 9 gold fish and one black fish, in the north east corner/portion of the house or factory is very good.

As a house is very important for a person so it should be made very carefully by considering the following points in planning:


While construction a bed – room, directions should be specially chosen. The directions according to which rooms should be constructed are as under:

North – West: The room in this direction is suitable for guests and girls.
South – West: The Chief of the house should have his room in this direction.
North – East: No bedroom should be situated in this direction. In such situation there is a possibility of increase number of girls in the family
South-East: No bedroom should be located in this direction. The children do not take interest in studies. There is no sound sleep. People have much anger. Decisions are generally taken hurriedly.
West: There is a possibility of birth of larger number of girls in the family.


It should be in the West and South directions and the flow of its drains should be towards North-East. Commode should be South or West facing. Exhausts fan can be fixed on North and East walls. Geysers should be South-East since it is ‘Agneya’ corner and Geyser is associated with heat.


It should be constructed in the North-East to achieve good health and wealth and if in the
houses already constructed, the balcony is in South-West, it should be covered with glass or screens

Children’s Room

The children are future of the nation. If the parents are able to give right direction to the children at their tender age then tomorrow they will turn into disciplined citizens. The
children’s room, too, should be constructed in the North-West corner but the bathroom should be arranged in above noted direction only.


The doors should be in the North and East. When someone enters through the door, the
waves emerging from the doors affect his mind because the magnetic waves always flow around us. Some painting or window should be opposite each door.

Drawing Room

It should be in North-West, South or west direction. In the traditional drawing rooms mattresses, covered with white sheets of cloth are spread in the entire room and round pillows are kept in South and West walls. Similarly, in the modern drawing room, the furniture should be kept in South and West directions. As far as possible the open space should be maximum in North and East direction.

Dining Room

In olden days the meals were taken in the kitchen itself but now the dining room has become an integral part of the drawing room. However the dining table should be kept in South-East.

Entertainment Room

This is an important place and the suitable directions for it is North-West or South.

Food Storage

The store should be in the kitchen and in the South-East corner.


It should be in the South-East or North-West corner but load on North and East Walls be
kept at the minimum.

General Room

Though, it is sparingly used; yet it should be constructed in the North-West.

Guest Room

It should be in North-West corner.


The kitchen must be situated in fire angle, i.e. in South-East. The face of the cook should
be towards the East. The water tap in kitchen should be in the North-East direction. It is better if the stone on which food is cooked, is of red colour.

North-West: This direction is the source of air. Fire and air are combined. As such, the kitchen can also be built in this direction. But while cooking, the face should be towards the East only.

South-West: This direction is not suitable for kitchen.

North-East: This direction represents the place of water. Fire and water are not friends. Hence, the kitchen should not be located in this direction. If there is a tank or well in this direction, it is all right or otherwise, as has been experienced, it would curtail peace and mutual love in the family.


As the hot water is also used while laundering the clothes, the South-East corner has been considered best for it but the flow of drains should be towards North-East.

Main Switch

The junction of electric cables of the house should be in the South-East corner
along with the main switch.

Main Gate

The main gate is dependent upon the direction on which the plot lies. However, Both East and West directions are considered best for the main gate of the house.

Mezzanine Floor

According to the rules of Vastu-Shastra we have to keep the South-West portion higher. Therefore the mezzanine floor should be constructed in, South or West.

Open Space

In every plot more open space should be kept in North, East and North-East than in
South and West.


It should be in the North-East and its height should be less than that of the main roof.

Patient’s Rooms

It is best to keep this room in South-West or North-West corner. If the head of the patient is kept in the South, he recovers early.

Place of Worship

This is the place from where good ideas flow. If it is in the North-East and the face of the idol is towards North or East then the property of the house is assured. To gain knowledge,
one should offer worship keeping his face Northward and should sit near the northern wall and to gain economic prosperity one should keep one’s face towards East and should sit in the Eastern side of the room.

Servant Quarters

These should be in the North-West corner. But load on the north and east walls should be kept at a minimum. This will keep the servants also happy.

Stair Case

According to the principles of Vastu Shastra the staircase can be constructed in any direction except North-East. If in some old house, the staircase is in the North-East, then a room should be constructed in South-East to lessen its ill-effects.

Study Room

The North-East corner is best for a study room. If the study room and place of worship room are adjacent then it is considered most beneficial.

Safe (Cash)

Petty cash for daily expenses should be kept in the North. Jewelry and other valuables should be kept inside a safe in the South. This adds to prosperity.


According to Vastu principles, Toilets and Bathroom should be situated separately. These days, it is not possible because of paucity of space. As such, these are built attached with each other within the house. The following points need special attention for such construction. Never build toilets in the direction of eastern corner or at “Ishan angle”.
These should be constructed mainly towards South or West. The face should be towards south or West while discharging stool.


These should not be in North and East but in South and West only.


This should be in the East as this is also a form of open space.

Water Tank/Overhead Water-Tank

It is best to keep it in the North-West, but could be kept in West also.

Well & Tube well

Water, too, enjoys great importance in Vastu-Shastra, so it should be in the Eishan Kona or North-East corner which is the most suited direction for it. It has been observed that if a well or tube well was in any other direction, the house owner suffers heavy losses. But when it was closed and the tube well was constructed in the North-East, the owner started earning profits. Given below are the directions and their effects.

North: Peace and Happiness

East: Extreme wealth

South: Shortage of female members or miseries.

West: Stomach and sexual troubles among male members.

North-West: Enemy creates trouble.

South-West: Disagreement with the son.

South-West: Fear of death.

Center of the House: Causes Heavy monetary losses


These should be opposite to the doors so that both the positive and negative cycles could
be completed. This provides happiness and progress to the family.

Watch & Ward

The guard- room is always constructed by the main gate. Its height should never
be more than seven feet.

Weights & Equipment

For these the South-West direction is considered to be the best.

Yoga & Meditation

These should always be done in the open and in the North-East directions.

Sometimes, it so happens that the man does such acts, out of ignorance, which harm him and their remedy seems impossible. Here, we are giving solutions to the problems of those, who had constructed their houses against the rules of Vastu -Shastra.

If some river or drain is flowing in a direction other than the north-east direction of the house and has anti – clock movement, then it is advised to place a statue of dancing Ganeshji facing the west on the north-east corner of the house.

If the boring has taken place in the wrong direction in a house or a factory, then it is advised to place a picture of Panchmukhi Hanumanji, facing South-West to the boring.

If a naked wall is seen while entering into a flat, then either a picture or a statue of Ganeshji should be placed there. The naked wall is the sign of loneliness. Hence, the wall should not be kept naked.

If high voltage overhead wires pass over a house, then a plastic pipe filled with lime should be erected from one corner to the other of the affected area in such a manner that its both ends should remain outside by at least three feet each.
