Cracks Play a Very Negative Effect on the Inhabitants of the House as Per VASTU . Its Said thats Godess Laxmi will Not Bless the House with Cracks on the Walls. Sudden Cracks are an Indication that Something Negative Might Happen to the Persons Staying in the House.

The colors you see when you wake up define you day. As a general rule in Vastu light colours in house are always better than dark shades. The colour of walls in the bedroom should be light rose, light green, Yellow , Cream Color , White color etc for they encourage Positive thinking.

Sleeping Direction As Per Vastu Shastra
Vastu allows sleeping with head in any direction except north. The detail of the direction of head while sleeping and its effects is as under:

East: East
is the direction of knowledge. Sleeping with head in the east improves health, increases knowledge and increases a liking for spiritualism. Children should always sleep with head in the east.

Sleeping with one's head in the west causes bad dreams, illness, disturbed sleep and violent nature.

Sleeping with head in the north causes fear and sleeplessness and major illness.

South is the best direction for sleeping. Sleeping with one's head in the south brings happiness and sound sleep. It also leads to increment in wealth and prosperity.


The study table, if placed in the bedroom, should be placed so as to ensure that the child should face east, north or north-east while studying. Facing east ensures better concentration while studying.

Guest Room
The north-west corner is ideal as a guest room. This is the centre for vayu and denotes movement. Guests so placed mean that they will not stay unduly long.

Best place for dining room is in the west. Now a days, dining room is adjusted with the kitchen or drawing room. Dining table should be arranged in the South-west or north-west portion of the room. Water arrangement should be in the north-east corner and fridge etc. (electrical appliances, if any) should be kept in south-east corner. Its Best to face towards east or north while taking meals for all Members.

South-east corner is the place of god of fire (Agni Dev), therefore, kitchen where fire has an important role Should be built in this corner. Kitchen should never be built in the north-east, South-west or in the centre of the House. Burner (gas burner, stove, Chulha etc.) should be kept in the south-east corner of the kitchen room , such that while cooking the person may face towards the east. Water arrangement should be made in the north-east corner. Shelves for keeping raw commodities, utensils etc. should be kept on the south or west side.

Lift positions are very important. A lift continuously moves and keeps on displacing air. The movement of the lift establishes a Northwest effect in that region. The main door of an apartment should not face a lift. It should also not be very near the lift. Similarly, a staircase should not face an apartment door. In this region, again the forces would be moving all the time and it also has the same Northwest effect. In other words, even if you have the apartment door in Northeast, which is a positive sector, the presence of a lift operating continuously, brings in negative Northwest currents and the effect will be the same as though you had a door in North of Northwest .

If there are beams in the apartment, then make sure that no one works or sleeps under the beam. A beam is always under tension and the area around it and the corresponding energy field gets subtly altered. They transmit the same tension vibration. A person who sits or sleeps under it, looses concentration and is ill at ease. Move the bed away from the beam. If your working table is under a beam or if your chair is under the beam, move it so that you are away from the beam effect.

To get better aesthetic look, sometimes the corner is rounded. Kindly Note that a rounding removes a portion of the active area from a corner. Hence, the opposite corner becomes stronger. If Northeast is rounded, then the Southwest becomes strong which will lead to bad effects. Similarly if Northwest is rounded, Southeast becomes strong and creates a distortion. If rounding is desired then they should be considered in both Northwest and Southeast. In other words, if you are rounding the Northwest corner, then the Southeast should also be rounded to the same extent to maintain a harmonious field inside. Rounding of Southwest is quite good as it helps in easy neutralisation and an abundant cosmic surplus. Rounding of Northeast should never be done, as it will take away the strength of the Northeast sector.

If your house has more open vacant space in south than in north, it will lead to Losses and downfall, Wheather its a house or an industry . More open space in the east than in the west is auspicious; the principle holds true for more open space in the north than in the south too. Open space should be kept all around the building. The plot having road on the east-north directions is better.

Water tanks should be on the roof in the south-west direction. Never place WATER TANKS in north or northeast corner. Underground water tank should be built-in north-east direction only. Flow of water and its outlet in the directions other than east, north-west, north-east and north causes troubles .

Keep your heavy and permanent items in the south-west corner of the building or plot. For a happy family life place more heavy items in the rooms south-west and south-sides. On the other hand, the lighter (weightless) items should be in the north, north-east and north-west directions. TV, radio or any other entertainment device should be placed near the south-west corner .

There should be only one main door of the house, which should be adorned with auspicious symbols. If more than one door are required, take care not to have two doors opposite each other. All the doors and windows should be of the same height, upper edges being in the same straight line.

The Boundary wall on the north and east side should be of less thickness, and the walls on south and west side should be built thicker. Construction of the wall must be started at the South-West corner and work must proceed towards east or towards north in the first phase. At every stage during the progress of work, the height of the wall should be raised gradually in such a way that any wall is lower in height towards the eastern end than that towards the western end; so also the height towards the northern end is always lower than that towards the southern end. The construction of walls from south east towards north and from North-west towards east should be taken up in the second phase. Main building must be constructed in the south-westportion of the plot, leaving more space open on the north and east than on the south and west respectively.
