Vastu for Home – A Comprehensive House Vastu Guide

Vastu for home is a collective approach, what I mean here is that if you do vastu for all rooms and parts of a home then complete home automatically becomes as per vastu. But before you begin to learn simple and easy steps for doing vastu for your home, I want to know if you knew what vastu is; if you do know, then read on, but if you don’t know what vastu is, then I sincerely request you to read our article which enables you to comprehend the glory and positivity of vastu shastra @ Vastu Shastra – Sacred Science of Harmony and Prosperity.

Now, since you are – or have become- aware of what vastu shastra is, you are now ready to take the next step, that is, to make your home a vastu compliant one. Since you have taken “that important” step to do vastu for home, let me appreciate and congratulate you for your gesture as with this step you have moved forward towards success, prosperity and abundance.
Vastu Shastra For Home

Vastu for Home – What in the world is it?

To make you better understand the phrase “vastu for home”, I want you to focus on each word of the phrase, namely, “vastu” and “home”. Let’s understand each word separately and then I will combine the words, so that the term “vastu for home” makes complete and perfect sense to you.

Vastu: As you are already aware that vastu is an ancient Indian science of enhancing positive and eliminating negative energies in and around a place or person; and the more positive energies are around you, the more abundance is attracted towards you. Hence, it is safe to say that vastu creates abundance and prosperity in life of people.

Home: Now, a home is the place where a person or family “lives” and by lives I mean really live and not just stay. If someone just “stays in” at a place then the place is not a home, that’s why, you just “stay” in a hotel and not live in there. Home is made up of passion, emotions and feelings like love and warmth. Tell me, how many times had it hurt you because you checked out of a hotel? On the other hand, imagine the pain you suffer, had something happen to your “home”. That’s because you are “emotionally attached” to your home, you love your home and share a harmonious vibration with your home and the home shares same vibrations with you. At this point, you must understand that all the emotions are nothing but vibrations and vibrations are – in turn – nothing but expressions of energy. Hence it is safe for me to say that a home is the place with which a family – or an individual – shares their vibrations and vice versa. Till the time home and residents share positive energies with each other everything remains awesome, but as soon as negative energies starts to enter a home, things start to become ugly – REALLY UGLY. Wanna know how? Read on.

You must understand that for each and every positive there is a negative, hence for each and every positive feeling – or energy – there is an equal amount of negative energy present in the universe. Now imagine what could happen if negative energies enter your home, suppressing positive ones? Obviously, the negative energy starts to affect you; not only just physically – by making you suffer medically – but also spiritually and mentally – by keeping you tensed, forcing you to take wrong decisions and much worse.

Now, try to combine above definitions of “vastu” and “home”. What you get is a vastu compliant home which has the capability of ridding negative energy and accepting – and even enhancing – only the positive energies. This – in turn – will always have positive effect on you – as residents – and you will prosper, be successful, experience abundance and peace – always.

Vastu for Home – What’s the Importance?

Since you have read previous section of this article, it will become easier for you to comprehend and imagine the ill-effects if you happen to choose to live in vastu non-compliant home. Making a list of all possible things that can – and will – go wrong in a vastu non-compliant home will take years to compile; hence what I have done here is, I have made a list of some – in fact very few –definite problems, evils and negative circumstances that one will face if he/she chooses to live in a vastu non-compliant home.

Here’s what all will go wrong in vastu non-compliant home:

  1. Social Losses: loss of respect in society, legal matters and other possible ways to achieve this.
  2. Monetary Hassles: business losses, nonpayment of credit to lenders and ultimately bankruptcy.
  3. Medical Troubles: Extreme sickness, lethal diseases and even untimely death.

and remember these are just few, indeed, very few.

Since you have read this far, I can safely assert that you are a responsible person and in no case you will want yourself or your family to go through any of the above mentioned – and not mentioned – negative patches.

As you have seen earlier that vastu enhances positive and eliminates negative energies, hence once you do vastu for your home, you can then rest assured that you, your family and your home are always shielded from such terrible negative forces of the world. To know how you can apply vastu for protecting your family from such negativities, all you have to do is just to read on.

How You Can Do Vastu for Your Home?

Actions speak louder than words” and this section of the article is dedicated to taking actions. Actions that you can – and are going to – take NOW to ensure that your home is as per rules and guidelines of vastu shastra.

The first action which I want you to take is to have a good look at the image below, as this is the image which will enable you to understand which room or part of your home must be located at what place.

 

Vastu for Home

The above image will always assist you – in present and even in future – whenever you happen to do vastu for home.

From the image above, you can understand that each room and part, that a home is made up of, has a designated place as per vastu shastra, and the best part is that once you have located the rooms as per rules and guidelines of vastu, half of your work is completed. Why did I say only half and not full, that’s because vastu shastra has tips, rules and guidelines for each and every room of a home.

Hence the equation stands something like this –

Vastu for Home = Locate rooms and parts as per vastu + do vastu for each room and part of home

Since you now know where to locate each room/part within a home, you have completed the part before “+” of the equation, all you now need to do is to complete the remaining part of the equation and THAT’S IT!!!

Now, to complete the remaining – simple and easy – part of the equation and do vastu for home completely, you need to understand vastu for each room and part of a home.

Where will you get that information?

It’s RIGHT HERE!!!

Here are the links where you will find all the information about vastu for each room @:

  1. Bedroom
  2. Kitchen
  3. Dining Room
  4. Pooja Room
  5. Living Room
  6. Toilets
  7. Study Room
  8. Home Coloring Guide

also, you can find and read the information regarding parts of home @:

  1. Main Door/Entrance Vastu
  2. Staircase Vastu
  3. Septic Tank Vastu
  4. Garden Vastu
  5. Water Tank Vastu (Overhead and Underground)
  6. Car Parking (Garage) Vastu Shastra

Each of the above links will tell you how you can do internal planning, décor, wall colors and other related parameters that play crucial role in vastu for each room and auxiliary parts. You must take action – read, learn and understand all of them, read them carefully, understand them, memorize them, do whatever you like, but make sure you always have them handy.

Once you have read and understood vastu for each room, you can easily start planning a structure for your home.

As rightly said by Benjamin Franklin

A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body.
-Benjamin Franklin

I hope, believe and trust that my “Vastu for Home” article guides and helps you in making your home a really sweet home.

Thanks for your valuable time and please share this priceless information with your family and friends.

    hello Sir my plot is a rectangle in shape ,does the house need to be square or rectangle only or the shape does not matter cause my plan for the house is T shaped ,please advice
    thank you

    • Hi Prem,

      As per vastu shastra, square plot and house is the best and rectangle is the second best. In case of rectangle make sure that the ratio of length:breadth is not more than 1:2.

      Since you’ve got a plot, I’ll suggest you to get an expert vastu consultant visit your place and get the slope of the plot checked.

      Thanks,

    Hi Minu,

    The house looks ok. The kitchen seems to be in South rather than SE. Try to cook in the SE part of the kitchen and face East while cooking.

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

    Hi Neha Gupta,

    The only concern that I have is the toilets at the center of the home on 2nd floor. That must not be there. Actually, if you see the image that I’ve sent you earlier, you’ll find that the center of the home must be free and nothing should be there.
    Bedroom (marked as X) is ok.

    Hi Neha Gupta Ji,

    There seems to be a staircase at the center of a home and that’s a huge vastu defect. As you said that this is a NE facing house, that means that this is a diagonal home, I am attaching an image of ideal diagonal house for your reference. Hope it helps you.

    Thanks,

    Hi Prasannan,

    I am attaching the image once again; hope you get it this time. As a remedy try to keep the tanks closed at all times and reconstruct them as soon as possible. Also make sure to get help of an expert vastu consultant while shifting the tank.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Prasannan,

    In both the cases (joint and individual house) the location of the septic tank in wrong. Since these are actually 2 houses, hence vastu for both will be separate.

    I am attaching an image with the comment to mark ideal location of the septic tank in North and East.

    Is that a kitchen in the SE of your home (S-25)? If yes, then I must say that vastu of your home is much better than that of s-26. Also, if that’s the kitchen in SE, then make sure to face East while cooking.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Guest,

    The house looks good to me. There’s a bedroom in the NE on the first floor. Please don’t use it as a bedroom. You can use it as a study room. Yes, an unmarried boy or unmarried girl (under teen) can use that bedroom.

    Thanks,

    I have purchased Flat 4 (1417 sqft North one). Please advise whether it is ok. Thank you for doing a wonderful service.

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Karthikeyan,

      The flat looks ok. However, the entrance is from SE; in vastu shastra SE entrances are believed to bring illnesses. Since the entrance is from East of SE, the severity of illness will be less than that of South of SE entrance. Please go through my article @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/south-east-vastu-dosh-remedies to know remedies for this defect.

      Also, face East while cooking in the kitchen. More on this @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/kitchen-vastu-tips/

      In any of the bedrooms, keep your head towards South or West. More on this @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/vastu-sleeping-direction/

      Feel free to ask further questions.

      Thanks,

      • Karthikeyan

        Many thanks for your quick reply . Great to hear that Sir. I will check on the remedies and use them. Yes, will be facing East while cooking in Kitchen, and also bed positions will be arranged so that head is towards South or West. Buyer is preparing a revised plan, I will get back to you if I have any other questions. Thanks again.

    Thanks,

    As per vastu shastra, there’s no optimum size for any room, but yes, there’s an optimum shape.

    As per vastu, you can have either a square or rectangle room. Square is best. In case of rectangle room, the length:breadth must not exceed 1:2.

    Feel free to ask further questions.

    There’s a lot of open space in South side rather than North side and that’s not very good, however, there are remedies for it.
    The staircase seems to be at the center and that’s a vastu defect.

    In the kitchen one must face East while cooking.

    • Udaya BR Vegesna

      Sir
      Thank you for your valuable suggestion, it is very helpful! Could i use Bedroom 1 as Master Bedroom? Could i have an En-suite in the south corner of that bedroom 1?
      Many Thanks
      Uday

      • VastuShastraAdmin

        Hi Udaya,

        As per vastu shastra, the mater of the house must sleep in the master bedroom and the best place to have a master bedroom is the SW corner of home.
        Hence, if you have a bedroom in SW and are not sleeping in it then you may never attain stability in life.

        In your case, if you’re the master of your home, then at least sleep in bedroom2.

        Thanks,

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Udaya,

      It seems to be a diagonal house with more than 1:2 ratio of length to breadth.

      The staircase seems to be at the center of the house and that’s a huge vastu defect.

      Also, there’s a cut in the West side of the home and that’s also not good.

      The entrance is from the East side of SE, this entrance brings illness to inmates.

      All in all, suggest you to find something better if possible.

      Thanks,

    Hi Lokesh,

    The entrance from SW is a major vastu defect to which you can apply remedies but they may just reduce the ill-effect and not eliminate it.

    By the way, on which side of SW is the entrance, South or West?

    Also, here’s a link of an article for South facing house. Hope that’ll help you.

      Also..is the bathroom considered to be in sw corner for plan ‘E’..? Is there any defect in the nw and ne corners?

      • VastuShastraAdmin

        Hi Isis Acacia,

        That toilet is more towards West so that shouldn’t be an issue.

        There’s a toilet towards the East side. Try to use it as a bathroom and keep sea salt in a bowl in that toilet. Change the sea salt once a week.

        In the NW kitchen, face West while cooking.

  • Raj Singh

    Came across your wonderful and informative site,while researching Vastu.Your advice is solicited.Plot faces slight south east, main entrance faces east, single story home is between 2 double story homes on north and south side. Should we focus on entrance or direction of plot?What is your opinion on this house?

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hey Raj Singh,

      Thanks for your kind words, I am extremely happy that you find my website helpful and informative.

      As per vastu shastra, the entrance of SE is the entry of diseases and the entry of East is the entrance of eradication of diseases.

      Hence, if the main gate of SE entrance, then it’s good to have the entrance door in East.
      This way you allow the diseases to enter from SE but kill the diseases before they enter your home in East direction (East is ruled by Sun, and Sun kills all the diseases).

      Double story houses on both sides can be an issue if their shadow casts on your home’s entrance.

      Send me a sketch of your home for further analysis.

      Thanks,
      Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Yogi,
    Thanks for all the wishes and I too wish the same for you and your family.

    In vastu shastra, there are lot combinations that are possible; there’s something that you can call as best arrangement, 2nd best and then 3rd best.

    For example, in NE corner of a home, you can have either a living room or Pooja room but never a bedroom or kitchen.

    Yes, the SW is best suited for master bedroom; however it can also be used to make a staircase (all the arrangement totally depends upon how the owner of home wants the things to be placed).

    Now, coming to the ancestral property of yours; I can see in the image that the house is basically a diagonal house with the main gate in SW and the entrance to the home in SE direction.

    Also from the measurements, that you’ve given, I can see that there’s an extension of the house in West-South-West.

    I understand that you’ve a lot of attachment with this home; however, some of the vastu defects (like SW entrance of main gate, SE entrance of main door and extension in West-SW) are inauspicious.

    You can get remedy for SW part in this very same article.

    Also, may I ask you the quality of life the people living in this house has? I mean, are they happy or are they having issues with finance and health.

    Thanks,

  • Yogi Singh

    “if the house is southwest facing means 220 degree, then how to locate various/different rooms bcoz, the vastu is directional base, and the the mention direction is not N,E,W or S it is totally different from other directions. Is this right to copy the the mirror image of northeast facing vastu house plan, to build a house facing southwest direction?????

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Yogi,
      First, we’ll love to wish you and your family a very very happy new year. We wish that you get all the success, happiness, wealth and abundance and thanks for following us on disqus.

      Coming to your question; as per vastu shastra, for example, a kitchen must be in SE or NW, now it doesn’t matter whether a house is N, E, S or W facing; the kitchen must be either in SE or NW part.

      Similarly, the master bedroom must be in SW corner of a home; here also the facing of the house doesn’t matter; and the same goes for all other rooms and parts of a home.

      However, as you’ve said that the house is SW facing, I must tell you that, it’s considered inauspicious as per vastu shastra and needs correction. You can read more about it @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/south-west-vastu-dosh-remedies/

      Feel free to ask any further questions if you have and yes, do like our fb page @ https://www.facebook.com/VastuShastraGuru
