Vastu Guides For Guest Room

The guest room should not be constructed in the southwest direction of the house because it is meant for the owner (Head of the Family) only. You can plan the guest room in the northwest direction of the house. It is a clear and suitable place for the guests to stay at your house. You may plan to construct the guest room in the southern direction as well. However, it will be better to consult a Vastu expert before choosing this direction. You can place or plan the guest room at the agenda corner (southeast corner) also. There is nothing troublesome with this direction. The door of the guest room should follow Vastu guidelines as well. Northeast door, facing east direction; Northeast door, facing north direction; Southeast door, facing south direction and Northwest door, facing west direction are the most preferred choices. If the guest room is situated at vayavya corner (northwest corner) or agenda corner, you can place the bathroom for this room at Nairuthi corner also, but don’t forget to take the advice of an experienced Vastu consultant beforehand. If the guest room is situated at vayavya corner, you must provide a window at the northeast corner, towards the north direction, or in the west direction. If the guest room is situated at the agenda corner, you need to keep a window in the south or southeast direction. Nothing serious is observed, even if you provide a window in the southwest direction. As it is, the agenda corner guest room crosses the middle point of the house, so if you keep the window in the southwest direction also, it will still be alright. Whether you want to provide an attached bathroom with the guest room or not is entirely your choice. Vastu Shastra neither advocates it nor asks you to avoid it.

When the whole house is constructed according to the rules given in Vastu Shastra, how can the guest room stay back? A proper Vastu arranged guest room can avoid any negative vibration or possible dominance from any person and fill the area with positive energy. Here is a bunch of tips given in Vastu Shastra for the Guest Room, have a look and enjoy a fun-filled, harmonious and short stay:

1. Direction for the Guest Room:

 Vastu Shastra offers appropriate directions for each and every room. The ideal location to construct a guest room is the north-west direction of the house. This corner of the house is considered an unstable area which is why it is best preferred for the guest room.

2. Placement for the bed: 

The bed in the guest room should be placed in the Southwest part of the room. It is to be noted that the placement of the bed is in such a way that the head of the person while sleeping remains in the south direction.

3. Placement for the Electronic Items:

 Nowadays, there is no room free of electronic items. Items can be a television, a computer, a mini-fridge, or hairdressing equipment to use. Keeping electronic items in the right place brings harmony and make a person wise and practical. But, keeping them in the wrong place can cause mental stress and diseases. Vastu Shastra advises keeping all the electronic items in the southeast direction of the room. You can keep a table and place all the items or you can hang them according to the suitability.

4. Placement for the Bathroom: 

Since there are attached bathrooms in the modern houses, Vastu Shastra advises keeping the door of the bathroom away from the bed. The door of the bathroom must not be directly opposite to the bed. It is considered very indecent and unhygienic to have a door to the bathroom exactly opposite or in front of the bed. Also, make sure that the door of the bathroom is always shut as it locks the negativity away from the room. The bathroom is known to attract negativity, keeping the door closed keeps it away from entering the room.

5. Placement for the Cabinet:

 No room can be constructed without a cabinet. It is used to keep things in the proper place and in alignment. The ideal position for fixing the cabinet is on the south or west or south-west wall. Northwest corner is good for the entrance of the guestroom and having a cabinet in the opposite direction seems comfortable and gives a unique and clean look to the room.

6. The lighting of the Guest Room: 

It is very important to choose the right lights for the room as it represents the taste and nature of a person. Using warm and beautiful lights in the house, especially in the guest room looks vibrant and makes it comfortable for the guests to stay. Using beam lights is disturbing for the eyes and irritating as it becomes difficult to see. Thus it must be avoided.

7. Colour of the Guest Room:

 Every room has its purpose, has its style and color. For a guest room, the best color options are light shades of green, blue, and white. These colors are known for their serenity and provide calm to the body and vision. Using dark colors makes the area look darker and also attracts evil eyes, whereas light colors are good and positive which keeps the atmosphere loving and encouraging. Thus light-colored guest rooms work the best.

8. Wall decors: 

Hanging beautiful paintings on the wall, placing a vase in the room is considered charming and makes the room beautiful. Vastu Shastra says to hand beautiful paintings and pictures of racing cars and bikes, flowers and valleys, flying birds, and scenes are considered auspicious for the room that ensures a happy yet short stay. If people are fond of hanging wind chimes in the window of the guest bedroom, the ideal position is to the west or north-west window. This will enhance the movement of the wind in the room, and the pleasing sound of wind chime helps in keeping the stress away and bring peace to mind.

To conclude, every family comes with many relations. There are many relatives from paternal as well as maternal side and having guests in the room is exciting. It is so much fun when all the members and relatives come together, eat together, play games and enjoy together. But, having guests for a long time can become a headache, thus having a pleasing time with guests and make their stay short and comfortable, use the above tips and observe the magic.
