- About the bedroom:
If you’re planning to have many bedrooms, then the plan should be:
- Master bedroom in the South or South-west
- Children’s bedroom should be in the East or West.
- And, the shape should be of complete rectangle or squares, which is in obvious way.
If you are planning to have a wardrobe in your master bedroom then you must have it in the North-West or south-west direction. This means the wardrobe can either be in front of the bed, or beside it. And, the mirror should never be placed just opposite to the bed, as it affects your health adversely.
For your child’s room, you must keep the study table facing the North or the north-east. It is said in vastu shastra that if you do so, then the child can concentrate well.
You can also add photographs and inspiring quotes wall hangings in your bedroom, so that when you return from your stressful day, you will be inspired to face to another the next day with positivity.
- About the bathroom:
You must keep the bathroom in the direction facing the north-east or the south-east. After all, the early morning sunrays are always beneficial for a human being. If that becomes rarely possible, then you might tend to shift your bathrooms on the North-West side. Do you know the reason?
The reason is- in India, the infrared rays of the sun are mostly on the West side, and therefore, the rays make the west part of the house relatively hotter, especially in the evening. If the bathroom is on that side, then it will help the house to get cooler.
- About the kitchen:
Kitchen must be in the south-east side of the house. This is the most effected place of the house, where all the energies prevail. And, hence, Vastu always asks to be careful of placing the kitchen in the right direction as there will be adverse effects.
The element of fire prevails in the south west part of the house. Hence, it is better to have the kitchen facing the south west part. If this becomes difficult then you can place it the North West at the most. But you must not place your kitchen in any other position but these two.
Did you know Vastu Shastra also says that Kitchen and bathroom should be parallel side by side? This is because scientifically if seen, then the heated waves of the fire sign are nullified by the cool water in the bathroom. You must also know that kitchen and bedroom shouldn’t be facing each other!
So now you know the signs then why to bother taking risks? Lead a peaceful life by going with the signs!
