Updated on April 3, 2012

The doors and windows form the essential furnishing articles of the house. They not only become the passage for the air to enter into the house but also as a gateway for energies. The windows at the right direction and right place help the positive energy to enter into the house and keep the negative energy away from us. According to Vastu shastra, windows at the right place can increase the prosperity and affluence of the people staying inside. Here I like to list down some of the essential vastu tips, which has to be noted when placing your doors and windows.

  • The main door should be taller than other doors of the house.
  • There should not be any obstruction in front of the main door like trees, poles, trash etc., These obstructions might stop the positive energy entering the house.
  • The doors should not be placed in the center of the wall. It should be placed away from the center but also make sure that it does not lie on the extreme corner of the wall.
