VAASTU SHASTRA | BALCONY

A Balcony is a platform that projects from the wall of the building and is surrounded by a railing. It is usually attached and accessed from the Bedroom. It is meant for relaxing, sitting, having a cup of coffee and unwinding. It may or may not have a roof.

Here are some Vastu Guidelines to be considered while designing a Balcony. 


LOCATION OF A BALCONY:
  • Balconies should be in the East or North part of the house.
  • Avoid Balconies in the South or the West sides of the main building.


ARRANGEMENT OF FURNITURE IN A BALCONY:
  • Heavy furniture and seating should be placed in the South-West of the balcony.
  • Swing should be in the East-West axis.
  • Small plants should be placed in the North-East of the Balcony.
  • Keep only small flower pots in the Balcony.
  • Avoid flower pots with creepers in the Balcony.
BALCONY ROOF:
  • The height of the Balcony roof should be less than the roof of the main building.
  • Avoid using asbestos or tin for the roof of a Balcony.
