VAASTU SHASTRA | BASEMENT

In multi-level houses, there may be a Basement. The Basement is  usually meant for Car Parking or for storage etc However some people use the basements for a family room or play room. According to Vaastu, Basements should never be used as living areas. But as long as it is not used for sleeping, it should be okay.

Here are some Vaastu Guidelines to be considered while designing Basements of a House.

LOCATION OF BASEMENT:
  • It is preferable to have only part-basement, and that too, only in the North-East or East of the house:
  • Avoid basements in the South, South-East, or West side.
  • Avoid using basements as living areas.
 VAASTU DESIGN FOR BASEMENT:
  • 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:
VAASTU COLOURS FOR BASEMENTS:
  • The Basement wall colours: The basement should be painted white or light colours and not a dark colour. 
This post was about the Vaastu guidelines for the design of Basements. The Basements are used for Garage or for Storage. Read the Vaastu guidelines for the design of these spaces here:
