items are kept and cooking is done. It is considered to be powered by fire
element and helps us in gaining health. According to Vastu Shastra, the
fireplace or stove and electrical appliances must be kept in right directions
whereas heating appliances like microwave, oven, etc. must be placed in a southeast
direction. If there is a geyser in the kitchen, then the northwest direction is
the best. Also, the sink for the kitchen must be fixed in the northern
direction in “L” shape and make sure there is no electrical appliance in the northeast
direction of the kitchen. By following these rules, Vastu ensures health and
happiness of the housewife and other members of the family.
· Vastu for Curtains: Curtains
are often used to cover the area from excessive heat and cold and also to make
the room look nice and decorated. Vastu advises using light coloured curtains
for the bedroom whereas dark coloured curtains like red or black or dark grey
can be used in the living room. You can always use heavy and dark curtains in
the negative zone of the house matching them with the furniture. But, using the
wrong curtain in a wrong zone can attract diseases and problems in life, so,
before purchasing the curtains for the house make sure you consult a
professional Vastu consultant and opt for the right guidance.
· Vastu for Mirrors: Mirrors

mirror, it automatically reflects and multiplies. Vastu says to use mirrors in
a cautious manner. Otherwise, it can lead to losses and misery. Using mirror in
positive zones is considered healthy for the family as it attracts positivity
in life. According to the rules stated in Vastu Shastra for Interior
decoration, mirrors must be placed east or north facing so that all the
negative energies are flushed out of the house. Also, using the mirror in the
bedroom can lead to conflicts between the couple that is why it is better to
have a separate dressing room or a dresser with mirror covered at night.
· Vastu for Ceiling: Ceiling
is the head of the house; you cannot live in a house without a ceiling. Vastu
Shastra advises having a flat ceiling free from cuts and irregular carvings to
lead a balanced life. Similarly, when it comes to the bedroom, falling and
depressed ceiling is a big no. Simple, elegant and flat ceiling works the best
for the residential properties.
· Vastu for Lighting: A
house without lights is a place full of darkness and negativity. But, lighting
without using Vastu Shastra can increase the darkness in the house and minds.
Therefore, Vastu suggests using bright lights in the house, avoiding damaged
and dim lights. In case there is a broken light, change or repair it
immediately and bid adieu to high beam lights to avoid any pressure and
impaired vision in future.
· Vastu Color scheme for the house:
Colors reflects a person’s personality and add substance to
life. The choice of colors represents a person’s taste, nature and liking.
Vastu advises using bright and soft colors in the house to keep the area
relaxing and soothing. Avoid using dark colors like red, black and grey as they
attract negative energies and create an aura of darkness in the place. For
