Vastu Gyan: Living Room Vastu

Posted on
Vastu creates a harmonious balance and linkage with nature to attract favorable effects of the Sun and other planets. Vastu balances the various energies in the environment to ensure good and stable mental & physical health. The size and cost of the house don’t matter in vastu rather impact of various energy fields and natural forces from different directions is more important.
The living room is the heart of the house. It’s the place where you spend time with your family and entertain your guests. The best direction for the living room should be northeast or east but it depends on the direction the house faces. For the north or east-facing house living room should be in the northeast. For a south-facing house, it can be in the south-east. For west west-facing house living room can be in a north-west direction.

The color of the walls in the living room should be light. White, cream, yellow, orange, green, and blue all in lighter shades can be a good option. Light colors brighten up the space and make it appear larger as well. 
Placement of furniture in the living room should be in the southwest and west direction. The owner of the house should always sit in the southwest or west direction facing either north-east or east. The reason is that sun rays and fresh air from the east and north directions ensure positivity. Furniture should be rectangular or square and there is always some space left between the wall and furniture to ensure the free flow of air. Placement of furniture should be done in a way that it should appear uncluttered and allow free movement of the dwellers. Avoid seating areas under a beam as it can increase your stress. A better idea is to conceal the beam with a false ceiling. 

All the electronic and electrical gadgets should draw power from a socket placed in the east or south-east direction. T.V. should be placed in a direction such a way that the viewer should face east or north direction. AC, cooler should be placed in the west direction as west of the house becomes hot during the day. Fireplace all things related to fire or heat should be placed in the southeast direction as this direction represents Agni or Fire element.
As they say ‘We become what we behold’. The paintings we put up in the living room evoke strong sentiments. Thus keep in mind that paintings should always be calming, positive, and uplifting. A picture of the Sun or nature should be hung on the east wall, a painting of a waterfall on the north wall, and a painting that denotes strength like horses, mountains, or elephants should be hung on the south or west wall. Always avoid paintings that depict war, sadness, violence, death, or has a negative impact on our life.

Make your living room a stress-free zone and relaxing space by following these simple rules of vastu. With a little care in the relative positioning of different things in a room, one could expect to live a peaceful, happy, and prosperous life.

Happy Decorating!!!
