VAASTU SHASTRA | OTHER FLOORS

In multi-level houses, there may be a Basement and Upper Floors. The Upper Floors are generally used for private spaces like Bedrooms, Study rooms and Family rooms. The Basements are usually meant for Car Parking or for storage etc.
Here are some Vaastu guidelines for the design of basements and upper levels of a House.

VAASTU GUIDELINES FOR BASEMENTS IN A HOUSE:
  • Avoid basements for living areas.
  • It is preferable to have only part-basement, and that too, only in the North-East or East of the house.
  • At least one-fourth of the Basement should be above ground. Any heavy equipment should be located in the South and West parts of the Basement.
  • The height of the Basement walls should be at least 9 feet.
  • The Basement should be painted white and not a dark colour.
VAASTU GUIDELINES FOR THE UPPER FLOORS OF A HOUSE:
  • If there is only a part upper floor, then it should be in the South-West of the house.
  • The Bedrooms and Study rooms should be in the Upper floors.
  • Avoid storing heavy things in the Upper floors.
  • Maximum number of doors and windows should be in the North and East sides of the Upper floors.
  • However, the number of doors/windows in the Upper floors should be less than in the lower floors.
  • The Balconies in the Upper floors should be in the North, East or North-East, but should not be in the South-West corner.
  • The ceiling height in the Upper floors should be less than in the lower floors.
