Vastu Tips, when implemented, help to minimize the negative energies and promote positive vibrations, keeping a check on the financial, mental and spiritual balance of the people in the house.

Vastu Tips – Position and Direction of House

The planned house should be divided arbitrarily into nine regions, based on the effects of sunrays and the electromagnetic field of the environment, for its VastuShastra compatibility. If this is followed correctly, the life passes smoothly with good health, wealth and prosperity. For smaller plots and flats, it may not be possible to have distinct nine regions but optimized solutions can be adopted taking good care of air and light. Furniture should be minimal as per necessity and folding furniture is preferred to create more space. For details on Vastu For Home Plan, you can visit the link on TheTelescope website.

  1. Hello,
    Thank you for such a good summary of vastu rules.
    I just have couple of clarifications needed, if you can-
    1. The very first image in this article shows husband-wife room in NW but later in details, master bedroom should be in SW. So which one is it?
    2. What is the vastu for office? is it same as study room?

    Thank you again.

    1. Hi Shivani

      The best location for the master bedroom is southwest.
      Northwest is good for a person who has to travel a lot for work.
      Vastu for office is the same for study room, keeping in mind that important files should be kept in South direction. Always keep pending work file in a northwest direction.

      I hope it helps you to lay out the plan.

      Thanks with best regards
      Kumkum Gupta
