Often we hear people talking about Vastu shastra while buying a plot or decorating their houses or workplaces. Positive energy is what you will expect from your new home. It has been proven that Vastu shastra is not only an aspect related to the emotional or religious aspect of human beings but also scientific. Vastu provides benefits, develops a positive environment, and creates an atmosphere of a happy life. We often spend so much time researching the correct way of styling the place we will be living in or shifting to a new dwelling. Here are some tips to decorate your house aesthetically pleasing while keeping the Vastu in mind. Certain astrology apps as well provide such tips.
Domestic Vastu: Green or yellow plot is suitable for commercial places. A plot between two bigger plots is not correct. Under a residential area, a basement should be constructed. The ceiling of every building should be built 12 feet and not less than that. They will generate negative energy among the people living there.
Colours: Certain colours are cheerful like pink is a colour of romance and new beginnings and is recommended for a couple’s bedroom. The green colour enhances focus and is suggested for study rooms. Yellow colour is a happy colour and is indicated for children’s rooms. Often in spaces like the living room and drawing room, the blue colour is suggested to enhance calmness and soothing to the eye. Black and Red are not cheerful colours, according to the Vastu.
Decorative items: Keeping an Aquarium is considered positive and generates wealth and prosperity in the family. If the professional career is going downhill, placing an aquarium with freshwater and living fish creates positivity. Thorny plants should be avoided, especially on the verandah or balcony. Some people love to hang paintings and art pieces on their walls. However, all art pieces are not favourable to your home. Avoid pictures like a sinking boat which implies negativity in the view. Images of flowers and landscapes are considered positive. Broken mirrors should be thrown immediately. It attracts negative energy.
Kitchen Area: The law of Vastu shastra suggests that the kitchen area should not be below the toilet or bedroom area. The cooking area should face north or east. If the refrigerator is placed inside the kitchen area, it should be in the southwest direction. The sink and the stove should not be constructed simultaneously. The dining table should be positioned towards the northwest.
Office and Workplace: The working environment should be surrounded by a positive and peaceful environment. The Accounts department is one of the most critical departments of a working place as it generates monetary success. The finance department should be either in the northeast direction or towards the southeast direction. The reception area is the first area the visitor notices and impacts their mind. The reception area should be decorated with wind chimes, pictures of Vastu, beautiful wall hangers, etc. The marketing and sales department should be positioned in the northwest direction of the office. The area can be enhanced through tips suggested in astrology apps readily available online.
Garden Area: Vastu itself is the element related to soil, water, air, and fire which makes the garden area flourish. Garden area creates a delicate part in the minds of people living in a plot. Vastu suggests yellow flowers like daffodils and sunflowers are cheerful flowers to grow. Blue colour plants like forget me not and iris should be planted in the northwest direction. Wind chimes and appropriate decorative pieces should be placed in the northwest order. A fountain between the garden and a small pond attracts beneficial results. To attract positivity and enhance the environment, trim the lawn and grass and keep it neat and clean.
Living Room: Usually, the living room is the first room the guests enter after entering the house. The furniture set should be placed towards the east facing the walls, or towards the west and south. Round or oval-shaped furniture should be avoided. Appropriate paintings and wall hangers should be used. Paintings depicting anger, violence, war, or destruction should be avoided. It builds up harmful energy. Light-positive colours such as blue, white, green, blue, and pink should be used.
