Vastu House Planning
An Ideal House can be made on a "GAUMUKHI PLOT". As a house is very important for a person so it should be made very carefully by considering the following points in planning:
Ideal location of rooms in a house is given in the diagram below:-
While construction a bed - room, directions should be specially chosen. The directions according to which rooms should be constructed are as under:
It should be in the West and South
directions and the flow of its drains should be towards
North-East. Commode should be South or West facing.
Exhausts fan can be fixed on North and East walls.
Geysers should be South-East since it is 'Agneya'
corner and Geyser is associated with heat.
According to Vastu principles, Toilets and Bathroom should be situated separately. These days, it is not possible because of paucity of space. As such, these are built attached with each other within the house. The following points need special attention for such construction.
It should be constructed in the North-East
to achieve good health and wealth and if in the houses
already constructed, the balcony is in South-West,
it should be covered with glass or screens.
It has been scientifically proved that the cow discharges Methane gas. We exhale carbon dioxide, which is harmful. Methane nullifies the pollution of Carbon dioxide. Therefore cows should be kept in the North-West as far as possible.
The children are future of the nation. If the parents are able to give right direction to the children at their tender age then tomorrow they will turn into disciplined citizens. The children's room, too, should be constructed in the North-West corner but the bathroom should be arranged in above noted direction only.
The doors should be in the North and East. When someone enters through the door, the waves emerging from the doors affect his mind because the magnetic waves always flow around us. Some painting or window should be opposite each door.
It should be in North-West, South or west direction. In the traditional drawing rooms mattresses, covered with white sheets of cloth are spread in the entire room and round pillows are kept in South and West walls. Similarly, in the modern drawing room, the furniture should be kept in South and West directions. As far as possible the open space should be maximum in North and East direction
In olden days the meals were taken in the kitchen itself but now the dining room has become an integral part of the drawing room. However the dining table should be kept in South-East.

The kitchen must be situated in fire
angle, i.e. in South-East. The face of the cook should
be towards the East. The water tap in kitchen should
be in the North-East direction. It is better if the
stone on which food is cooked, is of red colour.
As the hot water is also used while laundering the clothes, the South-East corner has been considered best for it but the flow of drains should be towards North-East.
The junction of electric cables of the house should be in the South-East corner along with the main switch.
The main gate is dependent upon the direction on which the plot lies. However, Both-East and West directions are considered best for the main gate of the house.

Place of Worship
This is the place from where good ideas flow. If it is in the North-East and the face of the idol is towards North or East then the property of the house is assured. To gain knowledge, one should offer worship keeping his face Northward and should sit near the northern wall and to gain economic prosperity one should keep one's face towards East and should sit in the Eastern side of the room.
These should be in the North-West corner. But load on the north and east walls should be kept at a minimum. This will keep the servants also happy.

Well & Tube well
Water, too, enjoys great importance in Vastu-Shastra, so it should be in the Eishan Kona or North-East corner which is the most suited direction for it. It has been observed that if a well or tube well was in any other direction, the house owner suffers heavy losses.
