VAASTU SHASTRA | STAIRCASES

The staircase connects the different levels in a house. It is used frequently by the inhabitants of a house and hence should be designed well - for comfortable use. Here are some Vaastu guidelines for the design of a Staircase.

VAASTU GUIDELINES FOR LOCATION OF STAIRCASE:
  • Staircase should be in the South-West, South or West of the House.
  • It is not advisable to build a Staircase on the North-East side.
  • Avoid internal staircase in the corners of a house.
  • Avoid internal staircase in the centre of the house.
VAASTU GUIDELINES FOR THE DIRECTION OF THE STAIRCASE FLIGHT:


  • The first flight should be from East to West or from the North to South.
  • Turn clockwise when turning into the next flight.
VAASTU SPECIFICATIONS FOR STAIRCASES:

  • There should be an odd number of risers. For example 15, 17, 19 are acceptable.
  • Avoid having a circular or spiral staircase.
  • Avoid rooms under the staircase.
