Moving to a new home or reconstructing an existing one. We put a great deal of energy and effort, into designing and remodeling our home. It is because we want our home to be attractive and presentable to others. We give importance to the areas like living room, kitchen & bedrooms.
Bathrooms and toilets are the most neglected place but the thing is we need to give equal importance to every place in our house because every space can be shaped to give positive energy. Vastu Shastra has a precise remedy for every area in your house whether it is the children’s bedroom, the kitchen, or the home office.
Vastu Shastra also dictates the right spot for placing your furniture in the house. There are also Vastu tips and rules for bathroom & toilet in terms of various aspects and problems. Toilets & bathrooms have chances to become the source of negative energy at home as they are often not given more importance.
As per Vastu Shastra, the bathrooms in the home must be separate and not attached but the space for living is limited thus, the attached bathrooms & toilet have found a way into our home. But this doesn’t mean that you can’t do Vastu for the attached bathroom in your home.
If our bathroom & toilet is not Vastu compliant it can lead to financial issues, loss of wealth, health issues, stress, or even minor accidents.
Hence, here are some Vastu tips for bathroom and toilet to prevent any kind of negativity in your home:
