Main Entrance of the house/office is very significant. Entrance in the East is the most beneficial and North is the second option after the East, while designing Vaastu Friendly House.
When searching for house or buying an existing one, ensure the plot is square or rectangular in shape And do not have a cut off in any direction and house not having any Vaastu Dosh.
It is extremely important to know the directions of the plot, because it depends the positioning of rooms, doors, windows and overall construction. That determines overall happiness of inhabitants that house.
Never purchase a Triangular dimension plot or flat or office. Never purchase a flat or house wherein no bedroom in SW. Toilet and bathroom in SW Forms the Vaastu Dosh and never gives stability to habitats in that House
How directions affects the habitats
Varun is the God of West and represents the water, thus West direction is the better option for swimming pool. Southeast is God of Fire ( Agnideva ) thus designing the kitchen in Southeast beneficial for that house.
