Vastu Shastra has great importance for entrance door in a home, as this is the place from where energies, either positive or negative, enter and exit a house.

Having said this, it is obvious that if more negative energies are entering a home from main door then people in the house will not prosper.

On the other hand if more positive energy is entering a home then the residents will prosper.

Main Door Entrance VastuNow, let’s continue our discussion on main entrance vastu; the most important part regarding entrance door of a home is direction, hence before looking at other vastu tips for main door, I want you to have a look at auspicious directions for entrance in a house.

Main or Entrance Door Vastu – Effect of Directions

North:- If you want to locate the entrance door in North wall of a home, then make sure the door is in North-East section of North wall.

The reason for this is to allow morning sun (UV Rays for purification), fresh light and air to enter the home from East.

Also keep the door towards center of wall (not exactly at center) and locate a window near North-East corner.

South:- If you want to locate entrance of a home in South wall, then locating the door towards South-East is auspicious; avoid having the door at center or South-West portion of wall.

For all houses having main door in South direction, it’s must to have another door in North direction also.

Special Attention:
It has, somehow, become a “common misconception” that all South facing houses are bad, however, that’s not truly the case.

In fact, as per vastu shastra, a South facing house can really be very auspicious, if and only if, it follows very certain vastu principles & guidelines.

However, if a South facing house isn’t as per vastu rules, then it tends to become the most inauspicious house that you can ever have.
