Staircase: Vastu Tips You MUST FOLLOW

Staircases – or stairs for short – are an important part of each and every multistory house. Stairs allow you to move from one level of home to another level – easily and fluently. In vastu shastra, staircases are given very high importance; it is said, believed – and even validated – that a staircase which does not comply with rules and regulations of vastu shastra leads to frequent – in many cases, major – accidents, loss of wealth and mental tension. On the other hand, if stairs are located – and built – as per vastu, then the residents enjoy wealth, health and peace of mind.

Here I assume that you are completely aware of vastu shastra. However, if you don’t know what vastu shastra is; then you can read the article which makes you familiar with vastu shastra and its benefits.

Staircase Vastu Shastra Tips

Staircase Vastu – Why Is It Important?

There have been many instances where a family – or an individual – faces severe money and health problems; when accurate vastu analysis of such houses was done; it was found that – in most of the cases – the staircase of home was the root cause of all the issues as the staircase was not complying with vastu rules and guidelines.

To make you understand the risks associated with vastu non compliant stairs, I have compiled a list of problems caused due this DEFECT. Yes, “DEFECT”, understand that in vastu shastra, non compliance of stairs with vastu rules and guidelines is a major – an obviously – a very serious defect.

Vastu Non-Compliant Stairs – List of Problems, Issues and Risks

Financial Troubles: Loss of wealth, debt and bankruptcy

Health Related Issues: Frequent accidents – lethal and minor, ill health of children in a family, breathing problems; blood related medical issues and rare lethal diseases.

Family Issues: Conflict within family members, mental tension and stress.

Being a sensible and responsible person, I believe that you will never – in any case whatsoever – want yourself or your family to face such harsh situations. Don’t you?

I believe that the above mentioned – few – reasons are sufficient for you to consider doing vastu for stairs in your home. Hence read the next section of this article to understand – clearly – and implement staircase vastu tips so that the stairs in your home brings happiness and wellbeing to you and your family.

Staircase Vastu – How You Can Do It?

This section of the article is dedicated to all those who want to do vastu for stairs in their home. In this section of the article, I reveal to you, the best location of staircase in a home, the shape, auspicious colors for staircase and much more so that you can make the staircase in your home as per vastu shastra.

To begin with, I want you to take a look at the image – which I have created – for you. The below image will reveal to you – in a nutshell – the best locations to build a staircase in your home as per vastu shastra.

Staircase Vastu Shastra Tips

Seen the image? Ok, let’s continue. Now you know that the best location to build a stair in a home is South-West corner. However – due to any reason – if the South-West corner of the home is unavailable to make a staircase, then the next best place to locate stairs is the South or West portion of home.

The next step in making the staircase of your home a vastu compliant one is to implement vastu tips for staircase.

I have compiled a list of all vastu tips and guidelines which will help you achieve a vastu compliant staircase in your home.

Read – and understand them completely.

Staircase Vastu Tips

What You Must DO

  1. Construct staircase in South-West corner or West or South directions in a home.
  2. You can construct external staircase in South-East facing East, South-West facing West, North-West facing North and South-West facing South.
  3. Vastu for Staircase suggests that while going up via stairs, one must climb towards West or South; and while descending one should descend towards East or North. Provide a turn in any direction due to paucity of the land.
  4. Keep the stairs clockwise as far as possible.
  5. Use the area under a stair as store place.
  6. Provide a roof sloping towards East or North at the top of staircase.
  7. Keep the number of steps odd. Make sure that the number of risers when divided by 3 leaves 2 as remainder. E.g. 5, 11, 17 etc.
  8. Use light and soothing colors for a Staircase. Avoid red and black color for stairs.
  9. Repair broken stairs immediately else it may cause accident and conflict in family due to mental tension.

What You Must AVOID

  1. The staircase must never be in the North-East side of the home.
  2. If the staircase is in the North-East of the home then there will be financial and business losses; also the head of the family will be in debt.
  3. Avoid stairs in the center of a home. Keep the center of the home free as this is the Brahmasthan. To know more on Brahmasthan read the article essaying the awesome story of Vastu Purusha and Vastu Purusha Mandala.
  4. Spiral stairs are not recommended as per Vastu as they cause bad health.
  5. If a staircase if encircling the building then it will lead to calamities.
  6. One must never keep almirah or cash locker under a staircase.
  7. The first step of any stair should never be round or circular.
  8. Stairs in a home should never start or end from/in Kitchen, Pooja/Prayer Room, Store Room or Strong Room.
  9. Do not have Pooja Room, toilet or Cash/Strong room under any staircase.
  10. If the space is less and staircase constructed in South-East or North-West then it may, to some, extent affect health of children in the family.
  11. Avoid circular or round steps as far as possible.
  12. If a staircase is build in the South-West (the best place) of a home, and room is available at the end of the stairs, then no one should occupy the room. If someone does occupy the room then he will fall sick, will have breathing problems; blood circulation will become slow and will start suffering from rare diseases.
  13. The steps going to upper floor must never be the same stairs that go to the basement or cellar.

Since now, you have all the required information on staircase vastu, I hope and believe that you will now be able to make the staircase in your home a vastu compliant one.

    hi Sir,

    kindly clarify that whether we will consider the outer few 5 steps before the main entrance door is in stair case? because as per the link they mentioned that “The staircase must never be in the North-East side of the home”

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Prakash,

    As per vastu shastra, you cannot make a staircase in NE portion of a home.

    However, if there’s no other choice (as in your case), you can install 2 solid metal tortoises under the 1st step of the staircase.
    This symbolizes that the shell of the turtles carries the weight of staircase.

    Thanks,
    Admin

    • Rashmi Gill

      Hi sir,
      Even i have staircase in NE side shd i use headroom of staircase for any purpose like storage and all o nt? Plus since v r planning to cover the headroom of staircase shall we keep tortoise inside in dark over the sheves?

      • VastuShastraAdmin

        Hi Rashmi Gill,

        Having a staircase in the NE of a home is a huge vastu defect and hinders happiness and financial progress of family. It also leads to head related medical issues.

        As a remedy for this you can place 2 metal tortoise under the lowest step of the staircase, this symbolizes that the weight of staircase is borne by shell of tortoise and not by the head of vastu purusha.

        Thanks,

    kindly suggest some good locations for the exit door.

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Prakash,

    As per vastu shastra, when making an exit door, make sure that the exit and entrance door are not in same line.

    Also, I’d suggest not to have exit door in SW corner.

    Dear sir, my staircase is in south-west of the house, it rises from north to south, however as we climb up the stairs there is a big mirror (we can see ourselves as we climb up) on the south wall reflecting the entire staircase, is this ok?

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Deepg2010,

      That should not be a problem.

      However, are you facing any issues in your life?

            I prepared rough sketch for house construction, Please advice is the stair case and room size also other vastu part is correct or no.

    • Deepg2010

      Thank you sir but I had read that mirror on either south wall or west wall is not considered auspicious.

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Deepg2010,

    Yes, as per vastu shastra, mirrors in South or West walls are generally not considered auspicious.

    You can read more about it @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/mirrors-vastu-shastra-tips/

    However, are you facing any issues in your life?

    Thanks,
    Admin

    • Deepg2010

      I’m not facing any issue in my life but would like to ensure mirrors are not placed in the wrong direction. Hence will the big mirror on the south wall reflecting the staircase & anyone climbing up the stairs bring bad luck?

      Thank you

      • VastuShastraAdmin

        Hi Deepg2010,

        The mirrors in South and West wall are known to reflect positive energies away, hence, if you cover or remove that mirror, then more positivity may come into your life.

        Thanks,
        Admin

        • Deepg2010

          Thank you, I can cover all except two: one mirror on the South wall & one on the west wall. Is there any remedy for the ones I cannot cover or remove?
          Regards

          • VastuShastraAdmin

            Hi Deepg2010,

    Hi Sir,

    I have a apartment on 4th floor. The main door faces south. THe main door is located to the east of south centrepoint. When I open my main door, directly in front of the door is an ascending staircase about 3 feet away. Is that ok?

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Shalini,

    If the staircase is not a part of your home then it’s ok.

  • Sona

    Hi Sir,
    We have recently bought an apt which is connected internally through a staircase to the lower apt by the previous owner. Wanted to know whether it is correctly placed or any remedial measures needed. I am unable to upload the pic as it not accepting. Any other way to send you the file?

  • Sona

    Hi Sir,
    I am sending you the pic of the layout. The entrance is from the North. All the directions are at the 4 corners of the apt. I am not able to upload the complete layout for better view.Please guide. Thank you.

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Sona,
    Please send a sketch of your home for analysis.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Sona,

    “All the directions are at the 4 corners of the apt” means that the house is a diagonal house.

    Now, as per the layout that you’ve send me, I can see that there’s a staircase in North of your home and that’s a huge vastu defect and may lead to financial troubles.

    As a remedy, you can place 2 solid metal turtles under the 1st step of the staircase. The turtles can face each other.

    You can get turtles from: http://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B00NUAOC3I/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=3626&creative=24822&creativeASIN=B00NUAOC3I&linkCode=as2&tag=vsguru-21&linkId=H4MGOSRT74IRQI47

    Thanks,

    • Sona

      Thanks for your prompt reply sir. It is a steel and wooden plank stairway. Any suggestions to change the layout of the staicase. I mean can you please guide me with the entry and exit of the staircase to reduce the vastu defect. Right now I am entering facing north west or north from down and ascending and exiting towards south west. Thanks.

      • VastuShastraAdmin

        Have replied.

        Thanks,
        Admin

  • Sona

    Thanks a lot for your prompt reply Sir. Just for your understanding sir, the if I stand near the first step, it is at 345 degree facing NW. Same if I stand at the center of the staircase area. Hope you can guide me.

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Sona,

      The staircase in the NE corner of a home is considered inauspicious. It may lead to non-progressive career, financial troubles, headaches (such as migraine) and other head related physical and psychological issues (like tension and depression.
      Hence there must not be a staircase in NE irrespective of the direction or angle.

      Thanks,

    Hi Srinivas Kommaraju,

    As per your diagram, your home is a diagonal house.
    Here, with this comment, I am attaching an ideal diagonal house as per vastu shastra. Hope it help you.

    Having said that, most of the things look good in your house plan except the staircase in NE.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Nitin,

    In both the flats, that you’ve sent me, there are cuts and extensions which will have ill-effects. Since you don’t own that property, I suggested you to look for better options.

    Feel free to ask further questions.

    Thanks,

    • Nitin

      Sir,please check these plans. and marked with arrow flats for their consideration.

    Hi Nitin,

    Out of the 2 plans that you’ve sent me, the first one is better.
    Having said that, I’ll still suggest you to look for better house as these are still lacking good vastu and have their fair share of issues like cuts and extensions.

    Thanks,

    Sir,

    We are staying in a multistorey with a common staircase in the NE side of the building. Please suggest few vastu remedies without construction/demolition (like paint, mirror, etc) to reduce or remove the vastu dosh of staircase.

    Thanks,

    Saurabh Sharma

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Shiva Y,

    Please mark North direction in the plans.

    In the first plan the portion of the bedroom seems to be extended and that’s not good as per vastu shatra. Also the kitchen is at the center of “supposedly” East side and that’s a again not good.

    In the second plan the staircase at the center of a home is a vastu defect that may lead to stomach troubles and troubles for the lady of the house to conceive. Also some financial troubles may come. As a remedy you can place 2 metal turtles under the 1st step of the staircase.

    Remember, any remedy may reduce the ill-effect but won’t eliminate the defect.

    Thanks,
    Admin

    • shiva y

      In the first plan house will be facing North 7 degrees. Even if we extend the patio as marked in RED, is the bed room considered as extended?. In the 2nd plan it will be facing North 0 degrees.

      Thank you so much for swift response. Based on your comments, my understanding is the 1 story plan is good compared to 2 story plan as there is the staircase at the center of a home which is a vastu defect. In the 1 story plan, is there remedy for Kitchen because the builder wont do any changes. Is the lot facing North 7 degrees considered as diagnol lot or 7 degrees is ignorable tilt?

      • VastuShastraAdmin

        Hi Shiva Y,

        For kitchen you can read the article @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/vastu-remedies-north-east-kitchen/
        and apply the remedies mentioned there (except the inverted bowl one).

        7 degrees is ok.

    The house plan look great to me. Just make sure to face East while cooking in the kitchen and keep the head in South or West in bedroom while sleeping.

    Hi Chintala,

    In this plan the stairs have changed, I think the previous plan was better.

    Thanks,

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Nitin,
    Open terrace in SW is a vastu defect. At least try to hang dark color curtains there and try to keep the balcony closed. Also, hang a Panchmukhi Hanumanji in standing postion (with gada in left hand). In fact, you can apply remedies mentioned @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/south-west-vastu-dosh-remedies/ for SW entrance.

    As far as betterment is concerned you can read our article @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/21-vastu-tips-for-wealth-gain-money-get-rich/

    Hello Sir,

    thanks for all your support to get our doubts clarified on vastu. Sir I have bought a house with plot size of 22*40 sq feet with road facing south. The ground floor is already constructed as per the plan attached and first floor is half constructed. We are planning to complete the first floor as per the plan attached. could you please advise whether are these plans have any vastu issues and advise remedies if needed. Sir the stair which is shown in North direction of ground floor plan would be reconstructed at south west as shown in First Floor Plan.

    Thanking you sir
    Srini

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Srini,

    Making the staircase in NW will be better for this plan. Also since this is South facing house, I suggest you to read my article @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/south-facing-house-vastu/

    Also, I can see that there are 2 kitchens, one at ground and another at first floor. If you’re planning to rent a floor of your home then it’s ok else make sure to have only one kitchen (the ground floor one).

    There’s a bedroom in the NE of the home in the first floor, don’t use that bedroom as mater bedroom, instead make a master bedroom in SW part (on the first floor, in case you’re not renting it).

    Feel free to ask further questions.

      Thanks a lot for the advise sir. We are planning to rent out the ground floor and in first floor we are going to stay. I have read through your article on South Facing House Vastu, found lots of interesting points like
      1) Avoid a cut or extension in South.
      2) Avoid car parking in South.
      3) Avoid keeping more open space in South than North side. ,
      I could see all these points are not followed as per the plan .
      Please advise if there is any remedy to get rid of these points.
      Also regarding your comments on stair case postion “Making the staircase in NW will be better for this plan.” Thanks for the advise but since constructing the stair case in NW required lots of reconstruction, we looked at the option to remove the stair case from North (as mentioned in Ground Floor plan) and construct in South West (as per first floor plan),
      Are you happy with the approach sir. If it have any negative impact please advise any remedy.
      Last query I have is regarding the bedroom in the NE of the home in the first floor, Do you advise us to place the bedroom 1 in the south of bedroom 2 and replace bedroom 1 with living room as per the first floor plan. Sir are their any alternatives or do you advise any remedy to keep the bedroom1 in Northeast of First Floor.
      very greatful to you sir.
      Thanks Srini

    Hi Shiva Y,

    I can’t see what’s at the center of the home. If there’s a staircase/toilet then it’s bad else the house has good vastu.

    Thanks,

      If i divide the house into 9 equal parts, The attached image shows the center of the Home where we have Washer and Dryer in NW, walk in closet in SW, Walk way from main door in NE and SE of Brahmastan. As you mentioned there is no toilet or staircase in center of house. Please let me know is there any defect with washer/dryer, walk in closet etc in center of house

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Shiva Y,

    As per vastu shastra, huge trees should be on the West and South side of a plot.

    Since you’re planning to buy a plot, I’ll suggest you to get an expert vastu consultant visit your place and check the slope and type of soil of the plot (these are very important in vastu shastra)

    Thanks,

    Hi Srini,

    You can keep the staircase in SW just make the first step of the staircase in the 8th pada (I believe you’ve read concept of pada in my article about South facing house vastu).

    Also, if you can, then please make large windows in the East side of the house.

    For first floor, shifting the bedroom is the best option. You can make living room in NE. To know more on living room vastu shastra please read my article @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/living-room-vastu-tips/

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Shiva Y,

    As per vastu shastra, the center of the home must be free and there should be nothing in it.
    However, if you can, then at least move any electrical appliances (if you have kept there).

    Thanks,
    Admin

      Thank you so much for swift response. This is floor plan that we are planning to build in USA and normally Builder wont agree to do any changes. I will find out from them and see what they can do. Thank you so much.

    • shiva y

      Sir

      Could you please check the highlighted Lot in the map and let us know whether the lot is considers as North East extended Lot and good for House construction? The Lot is facing North 4 degrees towards west. Is it considered as almost North facing? Is this Lot considered as Auspicious lot with North East extension?

  • Srini

    Thanks a lot for your kind advise sir. As advised we are planning to keep the first step of the stair case in 8th Pada, make large window in East. Also we are planning to change the plan for the first floor. I have attached the draft version of the modified plan. Please advise sir whether its the best option.
    Also if you have any advise please let me know sir.
    Thanks again for all your guidance.

      Hello Sir,
      Thanks a lot for confirming the same. I have received the plan for First Floor now. Request you to please have a look and advise whether is it fine as per the vastu.

      Few queries I have –

      1) As per your instructions the Brahmasthan should be free, but don’t think its free here as per the plan
      2) If the plan is OK what would be the best place to keep Puja room
      3) Also is there any restriction on the number of doors and windows in a room / house.

      Please advise sir. Thanks again for all your support to get rid of vastu defects and clarifying our doubts.

      regards
      Srini

    Hi, I found very use full info on your portal, it really helped me a lot to understand the Vastu. Thanks for sharing, I also attached my house sketch as I don’t have the house plan. Please let me know the vastu predictions of the house and remedies if any. going through the portal I can make it out that definately my house has got a vastu dosha, i.e. NE plot is cut, Stair case for upper floor is in middle of house, SE corner is extended, etc so please help me with the remedies to reduce the bad effects. Thanks

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Dhanpal,

    I am happy to know that you like my website and I am happier to know that you are able to correctly identify vastu doshas in your home.

    For cut in NE, place 4 vastu pyramids, one in each North, South, East and West of your home.

    The staircase in center is a huge vastu defect and leads to stomach related issues and complications in conceiving. As a remedy, place 2 metal turtles under the lowest step of the staircase.

    Feel free to ask further questions.

    Thanks,
    Admin

    • dhanpal

      Thank you Admin for your reply and suggestions for the vastu dosha pariharas for our building, I would definately implement your suggesations.

      I would also like to know about main door & enterances. we have got 3 doors for our house (i.e. inn & out). 1st is main enterance near to Gate, 2nd enterance near NE corner and 3rd is back door just behind the Staircase in image. Is it ok to have 3 doors for our home ? I am planning to close 2nd enterance which is in NE corner please advice. Thanks.

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Sridhar,

    All looks good in this plan.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Dhanpal,

    You can close the 1st one as it’s more towards the South in East side and that may bring illness to inmates. NE gate is good.

    Thanks,
    Admin

    • dhanpal

      Thank you for your reply, I am in confusion now, NE corner is very small and inside somepart comes under the Staircase which is in centre used for upper floor, I cannot use it as Hall aswell, the main Enterence is ok to use as Hall. since it has big hall and infront is gate aswell. I am planning to close the NE door (since that would be the 3rd door for inn and out) and fix window in that place to keep it open would it be fine ? and how can I remediate or reduce the ill effect of keeping the main enterance in SE. (since I don have other option left for main enterance.)

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Shiva Y,

    Yes, it can be considered as North facing. Since the extension of NE is from East side, it may increase inclination towards spirituality.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Dhanpal,

    For SE entrance remedy, read my article @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/south-east-vastu-dosh-remedies/

    Since, this is a house and not a flat, I suggest you to get an expert vastu consultant visit your place and get the slope of your plot checked.

  • Hi Saajidha,

    As per vastu shastra there must be no staircase in the NE portion of the home. Also it seems that the NE corner of your house has cut. Please refer to my North East vastu dosh article @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/north-east-vastu-dosh-remedies/
