Toilet is among the most important spaces in the house. Still, it is surprising to see how most people completely ignore this space when it comes to planning, arranging or even decorating it.
A toilet is a sanitation fixture used primarily for the disposal of human waste products. Toilets are often found in a small room referred to as a toilet, bathroom or lavatory. Ancient civilisations used toilets attached to simple flowing water sewage systems including in those of the Indus Valley Civilisation. Toilets have come a long way over time, and today’s models of toilets are engineered to save water.
While a lot of us may want to save that extra money that may go in decorating the toilet, scientific Vaastu lays down certain basic principles to be followed while positioning the toilet in the house.
Placement of the toilet is most important for the health and wealth of the inmates living there. If toilet is placed at an undesirable place then surely it would lead to major problems such as financial loss, health problems, mental tension and stress etc. Scientific Vaastu lays down rules for the placement of toilets so that it won’t create any complication for any occupant.
