    Thank you so much RealAcres Sir for the reply. I will try to follow the advise given by you. Since this is a rented flat it will not be possible to make any changes.

    Please pardon my ignorance as I am asking you some very basic things.

    Is there any option other than to stop using the North Bathroom/Toilet. I stay with wife, a small daughter and my younger brother who is also working. It is bit difficult to use the other bathroom/toilet by everyone. Rest other solution can definitely be implemented.
    You can use this as bathroom but not as toilet. Keeping raw salt does help but not using this North toi is best. You can use it for bathing in worse condition though.

    What is this raw salt and where can I get this. Is this the same as the normal salt which we use in food.
    It is actually called, Samudri Namak in simple words. It is the unprocessed salt available at kirana shop for INR 5-6/kg.

    What is rose quartz and where can I get this. We sleep with head towards south. The bed is in SW corner of the room because if we place the bed in the middle (South direction) there will be little space both the sides of the bed. Do you advise to shift to the middle or is it fine if it is at SW corner.
    Rose crystal quartz is a semi precious stone which you can get from shop which deals in various types of gemstones. It is pinkish in color.
    The bed location, is OK if there is practical difficulty.

    The colour of the drawing room is light pink. It will not be possible for me to get it changed as this is a rented flat. We use white colour light CFL in the living. Is that fine or shall I use something else or increase the wattage of the CFL.
    Color has to be white. If not, then have white elements like white flowers (artificial will do), white vases/pots, furniture etc. Even the curtains used can be white.

    We face East while cooking in the kitchen.
    Good.

    We have the pooja ghar in the master bedroom on the west side just near the door. We can not have this in the NE room as this room is used by my brother and we perform pooja in our room.
    Ideally, pooja room has to be in NE. Other options are North & East.

    We have many pots in the SW balcony, but some of the pots are cemented ones. Is that fine or should we replace them with the earthen pots. There is no balcony above ours as we have the terrace above our floor.
    No need to replace them. But from now onwards, bring earthen pots. The main issue is making SW heavy & it being Earth element, there has to be soil. It doesn't matter then if soil is in cement pot or earthen. Earthen is preferred because it is natural, and is brown in color, that's all.

    The furniture is mostly on the south or west except in the NE room. In the NE room the bed is in North direction and a table in the NE direction. We can not move the bed to the South or West side due to the orientation of the doors.
    Then atleast ensure that the bed is not touching the wall. Have atleast 2 inches gap between bed & the wall. And sleep with head towards South.

    We have TV in the North side of the drawing room and the TV stand occupies nearly all the space. Some space on the left side is needed as the main door is there, and we have the shoe rack and due to this the main door do not open fully. And we can not place full length mirror on the right side as there is electrical board. Is it fine if I place full length mirror on the North wall but its not that wide, may be just half a feet or so wide.
    First of all, the door has to open completely, atleast 90 degrees. If shoe rack or anything is blocking the door, remove it ASAP as this blocks opportunities coming your way. Under any circumstances, irrespective of door location, the door should open fully & preferably towards left from inside if it is a single door.
    As far as mirror is concerned, it has to be 2ft in width.

    I may be sounding very ignorant, and have some restrictions in implementing few things because I do not have all the freedom as this is a rented flat and only option will be to vacate this flat and search new one and I am not sure how will be the new flat.

    I will be grateful if you can reply.
    Well, if you can shift to some other flat, it will be fantastic. And yes, you can shortlist some flats, put all the floor plans here & we can pick the best amongst all. Ofcourse, if all are junk, then you will have to search again. So while searching itself, keep the basic things in mind, so that it doesn't create problem later.

    If you still have further query, kindly revert.
    If you are happy, you are successful.

      Dear Realacres,

      First of all, I really appreciate you for giving valuable tips on vastu thereby helping a lot of persons in taking a good decision regarding their property purchase. Coming to my problem, the flat in which I am presently staying (owned by my spouse and me jointly) has main entrace in the north west (north side of the west). It has two bedrooms both on the east side. The north east corner of the house is in the 2nd bed room. The m. bedroom is on the south east (east of south) but we have given it to two children, and mother as shared bed room. The kitchen is on the north west (with entrace on the north of west) at one end of the hall and the other end of the hall has the only balcony of the house (on the south west). The flat is three sides open, on the first floor of four storied building which has 3 flats on each floor ( there is a flat bang opposite to my flat and a stair case just adjoining to my kitchen wall going downstairs). There are roads on east and south of the flat the north and west side has small passage and staircase) Only one wall (the hall) is joining with the neighbouring flat. I shall be grateful to you if you could kindly advise me on the vastu properties of the house.
      Thanks & I will surely reply but only after you upload the floor plan here.
      Problem is many people don't take into consideration ducts, lifts (if intruding in flat), terraces etc. while stating directions.
      Eg. Look at savvy_v floor plan of Amanora here. He uploaded the floor plan but mentioned m.bed in SW but in reality it is in SE-South & SW is cut as it is gone in duct & partially in attached bath.

      To avoid giving some wrong readings, it will be best if you can upload the floor plan alongwith the directions, after which I will surely reply.
      If you are happy, you are successful.

        Pls advise me on vastu for the attached flat as well as the plot where the flat is. I have also shown the stairs for this floor. There are 4 flats on 1 floor. The door of the flat opposite is also marked. Pls let me know how much % the flat is OK? and also any vastu dosh and remedy. thanks in advance.
        There is some deviation from the main angle. First, find out the exact deviation of the angle. If it is less than 10 degrees, then its OK.

        Man, is this 2.5 BR flat, as I can see only 2 baths ?
        The major prob is the bath/toi in SE corner of flat, which needs to be closed down permanently. The common bath/toi is good but then you will be left with single bath/toi in the flat. Is it OK with you ? If yes, we can proceed, if not, search for another flat as bath/toi in SE has no effective remedy (please note effective remedy). This is critical as you are placing Water in location of Fire.
        If you are happy, you are successful.

          In continuation to the above post, I add that the flat has two toilets. Both attached to the bedrooms (placed between two bed rooms ). The toilets share walls with hall, both bed rooms and the east outerwall of the flat. One toilet seat face towards West and the other towards east.

          The Flat is in rectagle shape. Hall is rectangular, kitchen, both bed rooms are in almost square shape.

          Though we have no dearth of money the spending is huge. There are no serious health problems. Both of us got two promtions each after shifting to this house.

          What I want to know is the effect of this house on my children and on our financial health. Thanks a ton in advance.

          Regards.
          As said above, it will be best if you can upload the floor plan of your house so as to make precise calculations.

            Yes the deviation is not more than 10-15deg.

            Also its 3 bed and 2 bath/toi.
            The bath/toi that you mention in SE, isn't that S. I actually thought it was S. As I am considering that Kitchen is perfect SE. the house is not in perfect NEWS direction. The main door is facing W of NW. pls advise. Any other Major flaw.

            What is your take on shape of flat, its in the same attachment, just scroll below.
            thanks and regards.

              In continuation to my earlier post

              Hello RA,

              Thanks for answering few of my questions. In continuation to my last post, I have prepared my floor plan from the details builder has specified in the broucher. There is generic floor plan provided by builder with directions mentioned for the buildings only..

              Second picture I have attached at the bottom is of my society. My flat is in the building marked with black circle and the direction of balcony is same as the arrow ended with a comment(Direction of balcony) marked in the society map. As per the compass, all the balconies are in NE direction (It will come between North and East) and Main door entrance will be in between south and East direction. You only have to visualize the balconies in NE direction. I hope I am able to explain this clearly...

              (Please ignore the size and name of the rooms as they are they appearing as rotated because I created my floor plan image from an existing image)

              Please let me know If this changes any of your earlier comments mentioned in below post.


              Also is it bad If any of four directions are coming in any corner of flat. Any remedy for this??

              Regards
              Iminvestor

              Please check the angle as if angle deviation is more, it changes all the directions entirely & therefore the readings. The following readings are based taking into consideration that the deviation in angle is not more than 10 degrees.


              Good. Changes :-

              > See if door can be shifted more towards NE (currently it is in NW). It will good even if it can be shifted to North.

              > The kitchen platform should be made such that you face East while cooking. No point in having kitchen in East if you face North/South while cooking as seen on the floor plan.


              Pooja ghar should never be outside the house. Balcony, terrace, garden etc. are out of these 4 walls of house. Keep pooja ghar in NE part of the house (inside) in such a way that you face east while performing pooja.


              > The bedroom in SE-East should be painted pastel green. Place a rose quartz crystal here.

              > Plant red color rose, red hibiscus etc. in both the terraces attached to the bedrooms.

              > Keep the beds exactly as shown in the floor plan.

              > The m.bed should have furniture, curtains in brown & shades of brown color as much as possible,

              > The TV should be located on North wall of the living.

              > Have dining chairs arranged in such a way that one faces North, East while eating/drinking. West is also OK, but never face South while consuming food, water.

              > Have the dining table in square/rectangle shape only. Best to have it of wooden. Avoid glass as much as possible. You can ofcourse have glass on wooden base.

              > Curtain color of living room should cream, off-white or lemon;
              The child bedroom should be in maroon, reddish in color,
              M.bed should be brown in color.

              > Place tulsi plant in terrace attached to living room & lit lamp in front of it regularly alongwith incense stick. Keep this terrace as light as much as possible. Don't clutter & have least number of plants so as to avoid weight. In short, don't make this terrace heavy, this NE terrace has to be the lightest part of your entire house.

              > And yes, usage of raw sea salt (replace after 15 days) in bathroom is universal.

              * One major note :-

              Never use antique furniture, goods etc. Infact, even if you own a furniture which is more than 10 years old, replace it with new one.


              If you have further queries, please revert.
              God bless.

                  • Re : Vaastu Shastra Tips

                    Thanks a lot RA for your detailed analysis and very valuable inputs. Yes, I was referring to flat 2 only. Attaching the floor plan with dimensions as well.

                    I have some follow-up questions

                    Make parallel platforms in kitchen & cook facing East. Create loft, if required on entire South wall of kitchen,
                    Can you explain this please?

                    Pooja is wrong. Ideal location is 2 followed by 3. You can even have it in NE part of 7 bedroom if this room is going to be used as study,
                    I am planning to use #7 as kids bedroom. Is there any remedy for using 14 as pooja? If not, I can have pooja in 2 or 3

                    The toilet 9 should be used only for bathing & not as toilet
                    8 & 9 is planned as bedroom & toilet for my parents (who are 60+). Attached toilet would be very helpful for them. Is there any remedy if we need to use 9 as toilet as well?

                    Swap 10 with 11. The dresser goes to master suite location & vice-versa,
                    Since the master bedroom has a balcony on the east, placing the dresser on the east extreme (10) would be difficult. Can I still have dresser in same position (11), but move the bed position more towards the west (closer to 11)? In that case, the space on the east would be empty. The room dimensions are 11.5 * 17.5 ft.

                    Thanks again!!!

                      Hi RA,
                      Had few more doubts reg the vastu of 06 in B block as attached in http://www.bmdevelopers.com/images/BM-MARVEL2.jpg .
                      Can you please clarify ?
                      can there be staircase which touches the northern wall?
                      Also, the number of doors (inc of bath) are 7 and i see gen people suggest to have even number . So , will you suggest to have one more door .
                      If yes,We are thinking of having two doors to c bedroom, adding one just opp to the main door.
                      there is a balcony in the m.bedroom, as SW needs to be heaviest , isn't this space vacant and light always. Can we use a small portion of it, the sw extreme corner as a store room by partitioning with a grill ? Need your advice on this .

                      Thanks,
                      Mahesh
