Face your best: As per the Vastu, there are a host of different directions while you sleep, eat, be a host, are working, studying, praying, etc. Ensure your furniture allows you to face the same.

Spot places: According to Vastu, there are spots at your home that needs to be either empty or decorated in as a minimalist way as possible. Ensure those spots aren’t cluttered.

Avoid these: One must not keep prickly things like a cactus in the house. Avoid cranky doors that need regular oiling.

Directions can invite or deviate the energies of your house. If one looks carefully at the logic of Vastu Shastra one can easily find the major ones addressing       directions. There are two categories of directions for Vastu compliant homes-one that pertains to the placement of things while the other that deals with you while using that appliance or furniture. Look around your house and shift the placement of appliances, furniture or anything that redirects your positive energies somewhere else. For example, aquariums need to be in the north-east direction and when any guest visits your home, you should be facing in a particular direction.  

  1. Placements  Are a Thing Too:

Everything has a decided direction and place in your house, according to the vastu. Adding or removing a few things can be quite beneficial. A sweet family picture, wall hangings like a dream catcher or windchimes, little pots, and aquarium-anything that can ooze positive energies. Their placement like in the corners, north-east direction, one facing the main door is crucial. The point is to enhance the existing energies in which placing things at their designated space and direction. 

  1. Check For Room-Specific Rules:

Every room is meant for oozing out a type of energy. One needs to ensure that while being in that room, one feels and is on the positive side. There is no point studying in a study room if you do not feel that intensity and sincerity. Likewise, you need a serene environment or calmness while praying.

So, for the bedroom, electronic equipment is not preferred, for the living room, they should be placed in the northeast direction. The door of our bedroom should open around 90% only.

Your kitchen should not have a mirror in it and the drinking water should be placed in the northeast direction. One must always keep the bathrooms/toilets’ doors closed to avoid negative energy flow. The windows must open outwards.  

Speaking of a garden, your garden need not have tall trees that would be little your house. If you adorn your garden with a Tulsi plant, it should be just about 1.5 meters and face the northeast direction of the house.


These were a few of the many rules that can help you elevate and turn your house into a fully vastu-compliant home. After all, even you are working optimally at your workplace, doing well in other aspects of life, little recurring non-vastu compliances can drive you out of the positive energies. Later, you might draw the conclusions of the tiny mishaps, which attribute to Vastu Shastra.
