1. Entrance:

 Every property comes with an entrance. When it comes to a west facing plot, Vastu advises dividing the length of the house in two parts that is North West and south west. Between these parts, divide the area into nine equal parts. According to Vastu Shastra, third, fourth and fifth pada is best suited for the entrance. Having entrance in these parts bring prosperity to the owner. Also, make sure to place the entrance on the west side to bid adieu to any negativity and evil eyes from the area.

2.Open Area:

 In South facing houses, first and the second pada is used for open space before the entrance. Vastu says that you can place the entrance in first and second pada, but it does not leave any impact.

3.Walls of the plot: 

No matter what type of plot is, there are always around the area to protect it from outside damage. Walls are also used to segregate the area and divide it into parts. For the west-facing plots, Vastu advises keeping a check on the walls. It is advisable to keep the south and west side walls thick and strong than the east and north walls. East and north region is often advised to leave open as the sun rays enter, on the other hand, west and south areas seem to be prone to negativity thus having thick walls is considered auspicious.

4.Placement for Kitchen:

 Building a kitchen in the right position is very important. The kitchen is the place which brings contentment, satisfaction and prosperity in the house, and when it comes to west facing houses, a kitchen plays a vital role.

For the west-facing plots, it is considered auspicious to locate the master bedroom in the south-west corner. If there are many floors in the house, then constructing the master bedroom on the top floor is best suited as it brings success, harmony and blessings from ancestors.

6.Placement for Kid’s Room: 

Since the master bedroom is for the parents and owners of the property, there is always a kid’s room for the children. There can be one room for the kids or a separate room for children depending on the need. For the betterment of children, Vastu advises constructing the kid’s room in south, west or north-west direction. These directions enhance concentration and focus in the minds and bring peace in life.
