Vastu Tips for Construction of Stairs and Homes

Stairs should be considered well in Vastu Shastra. Positive energies climb up the stairs of a home and make their way through your interiors. You should also consider the shape and location of stairs along with elevation and height to have strong flow of positive energies.

  • Always keep odd numbers of steps in a stair case, such as 5, 9, 15, 11, 21, etc.

  • Staircase should go to clockwise direction. Anti-clockwise stairs show that the time circle of inhabitants in reverse direction.
  • Don’t build stairs in front of main gate of the building as all positive energies and luck will climb up and won’t enter in the building.
  • You can create storage area under the stairs. But avoid building seating area or bathroom over there as it is very unlucky.
