Vastu tips for toilets, bathrooms

vastu tips

Vastu Shastra prescribes each area of the house as per direction most suitable to it. Not just in terms of area, vastu also recommends placement of every item in house in a particular manner and direction. As important are bedrooms, kitchen, pooja room to us, so are the toilets and bathrooms. Regrettably, these are the most ignored areas of the house, wherein, these are the spaces which drain most of the positivity of a house and can be a big source of negativity, if not paid any attention to. Here are the few tips to make toilet and bathroom as positive as any other area of a house.

  1. First and foremost is the placement of toilet and bathroom. Bathroom alone can be made anywhere in east, north, northwest, west and lastly south, whereas bathroom with toilet (commode) is suggested only in south, west and Northwest. Toilets and washroom should be strictly avoided in exact southwest and northeast.


  1. All the water taps in toilets and bathroom should be fixed either on north or east wall and commode should come on south or north wall. Most importantly commode lid should always be down and toilet door closed to restrict negativity of toilets pervading your house.

  1. There should be proper ventilation in the toilet and bathroom, so as to restrict the growth of mold, bacteria and fungus in there. Direct sunlight in toilets and bathroom is going to be a plus. Toilet should be clean, aromatic and dry at any point of time.

  1. Toilet is usually a place, where you spend time with yourself, think and plan about future. Let the colour of walls/tiles be pastel or use universal colors like off-white, cream, beige, ivory to help you keep you thinking hats on. Mugs, bucket, linen used in the bathroom can also be in the suggested colour.

  1. In case of common toilet and bathroom, there should be a partition to separate toilet area with bathing area so as to maintain hygiene in the bathroom and create sense of cleanliness and freshness in the bathroom.

  1. Toilets should not share a common wall with Pooja room or Kitchen. Bed room is okay as long as the bed and commode are not aligned to the common wall.
