Vastu for living home:

Generally, the entry to our home is through a living room. So the living room must look happy and inviting. The entrance door must be of wood. Always place the furniture in the west or south direction and away from the wall to allow the energy flow even from the back. Avoid irregular shape like oval or round in the furniture. A neat square or rectangle is the preferred way to arrange the furniture in the living room. The television must be placed in the South-east, North or Eastern part of the room. Since the living area is the social area of the house, there is a tendency to display artifacts and memorabilia. Avoid putting a lot of it here. The whole point is to keep the area less obstructed for the positive energy to flow in. When you have guests visiting make sure you must face the North or East direction. 

Vastu for dining room:

Dining table must be placed in the North-west position of the kitchen or living room. The dining table must be made up of wood and kept away from the wall. It should be uniform in shape and tone and it should be round or oval in order to stimulate communication and maintain relationships within the families. Avoid dark color material in the dining table or dining area. 

Vastu for kitchen:

In the kitchen, the force of nature- fire and water coexist. The vastu of the kitchen is all about balancing these two forces. So the kitchen vastu says that the stove top and sink should not be on the same platform and the two energy should not collide with one another. The cooktop must be placed away from the window or corner space as it is vulnerable to negative energy. The stove must face south while drinking water should be positioned in the North-east side. The kitchen must be in the South-west corner or North-west corner. Try to keep the kitchen as far as possible from the bedroom. 

Vastu for bedroom:

The bedroom must be full of positive aura as it is the most important room in every house. The bed in our bedroom must be placed in the South-west direction of our bedroom and the South-east part must be kept empty. The bed must be kept away from the door and window to avoid the flow of vital energy especially during the night. The wardrobe in the bed room with valuables must be kept in a south-west direction only. Never place a mirror in the bedroom that reflects the image of the bed. Place it strategically that the bed is not visible in the mirror. Make sure your head faces south when you sleep as it is the most calming and comfortable position. Keep your bedroom clutter free. 

Vastu for bathroom:

Water in the bathroom  predominates the space and with its flow, it washes away the energies too. Vastu advice to incorporate wooden and stone elements in the bathroom. It symbolizes the element earth and balances off the energy loss by the flowing water. The bathroom must be ventilated and illuminated to avoid humidity. To keep the bathroom fresh and elegant, introduce small pot plants in the bathroom.
