The most benefits that you can avail from a room is by setting it up in the right direction. Depending on its direction and the zone in which it is situated, each room has its positives and negatives for the people that live in it. An east zone living room is considered ideal for developing strengthened social connections. While a living room in the east and the south-east direction should be avoided as per Vastu regulation because it may lead to increased anxiety and disagreement with one’s spouse. It is advised that building a toilet between north and north-east direction zones in the house. It is believed that this may have a severe effect on the immunity and the health of the family. North-east and south-west zones should be avoided for setting up a kitchen, while the south-east direction is the most ideal.
Proper Ventilation with Ample Sunlight
A great deal of importance is given to ventilation and sunlight when it comes to Vastu Shastra. Close claustrophobic places lead to breeding of germs and microbes and if there is ample sunlight coming in the room, it will kill all the unwanted germs and smells. Either a north facing or an east facing and even a north-east facing flat with windows in one or all of these directions is ideal. The morning sunlight brings positivity and ultraviolet rich rays while in afternoon harmful infrared rays come in. Due to the same reason windows should be avoided in both west and south directions.
Common walls with neighboring houses should be avoided because it creates mixed energies. For the same reason, all four sides of the building should have open spaces.
Water Storage Tank
A water tank must be placed in the north-east direction because it is believed that the morning sunlight rich in ultraviolet rays will purify the water. The water tank should preferably be not of plastic, but if a plastic is used then it should be of a color like black for the facilitation in the absorption of sunlight.
Circulation of the Building
A well-designed core should be there for an apartment building and a staircase should be provided adjacent to the lift for better circulation. It is better to have the staircase in south-west direction because it provides buffer zone away from hot sun rays entering the building’s interior
