Vaastu for your Guest Room!
'Athiti devo bhavah' is a Sanskrit verse which literally translates to 'The guest is God'. In India, this verse has been the code of conduct for over centuries and just like the other rooms in the house, the guest room needs to be created keeping Vaastu in mind.
Best Directions for Guest Room
The best location for the guest room is in the northwest direction. If this is not possible, the second best options are south and southeast. However, remember not to build the room in the southwest as this is a direction which is reserved for the head of the house only, as per Vaastu. Building a guest room here can create trouble in the house. You also need to consider the direction of the door of the guest room when designing the room. The most ideal choices are the northeast door, facing the east direction; northeast door, facing north direction; southeast door, facing south direction and northwest door, facing west direction.
If the guest room is situated at 'vayavya' (northwest) corner, you must provide a window at the northeast corner, towards the north or in the west.
If the guest room is situated at 'agneya' corner, you need to keep a window at south or southeast direction. According to the principles of Vaastu Shastra, it is totally up to you to decide whether to provide an attached bathroom or not.
Best Colours for Guest Room
The most suitable colours to use in the guest room are white, coral red, cream, lilac, light blue, peach, green and light shades of pink. Remember to use soothing shades as it is liked by most. These colours are believed to maintain peace and harmony in the house. It is also a great idea to use such uplifting shades as accent points.
Try to keep the décor of the room minimal, sober and aesthetically appealing. Avoid trendy and funky décor for the room as not all your guests will like it. Remember to match the bed sheets with the colour of the wall. You can opt for velvet fabric instead of synthetic fabric while setting up the room.
