Vaastu Colours for the Living Room
The living room represents our style and individuality. Therefore, it must be appealing and expressive. The living room should be built facing the east, north or north-east direction. Since the living room creates a favourable or unfavourable first impression when guests visit, it is important to get the colours right for this room.
Colour Recommendation: Our Vaastu experts highly suggest using as many earthy tones and neutral tones in the living room as possible. These colours promote better relationships and an active environment, perfect for maintaining liveliness and positivity. It is wise to avoid displaying depressing or negative paintings on the walls.
Vaastu Colours for the Dining Room
The dining room is one of the most important parts of the living space. The best direction for the dining area to be designed in is the east or south-east.
Colour Recommendation: Our Vaastu experts suggest light colours such as pastels as it is believed to help families bond better. It is best to avoid black and dull colours in this area as such shades can wash you down and have a negative effect in what should be a happy place.
Vaastu Colours for the Kitchen
The kitchen represents the action of transforming raw vegetables and other staple ingredients into energy-giving food using fire. Therefore, kitchens should always be constructed in the south-east direction, which is considered to be the fire corner of the home.
Colour Recommendation: As per Vaastu experts, some colours can help increase metabolism and improve digestion, leading to good health and prosperity. Appetising colours such as yellow and orange are best suited for the kitchen area.
Vaastu Colours for the Bedroom
The master bedroom should be located in the south-west direction as it is peaceful, perfect for relaxation.
Colour Recommendation: For a night of restful sleep, you can choose a soothing shade of blue or green as your bedroom wall colour. Avoid dark blue and red for all bedroom interiors as it is considered to bring disharmony and sleep disturbances.
Vaastu Colours for the Kids Room
Any room for a kid should be ideally constructed in the west. A kids room should always be nurturing and bright as it not only helps enhance his or her personality but also improves focus on academics.
Colour Recommendation: Colours such as green and blue are ideal for the kids room and it is best to avoid colours like red, purple and orange that are believed to be counteractive.
