The evolutionary transition of our society from ‘traditional’ to ‘modern’ has led to some drastic changes in house structures and designing. One of such changes is the invention of septic tanks. Septic tanks are economical, environmentally friendly and effective private sewage treatment plants. However, like every other component of a house structure, they too must be built according to vaastu for septic tank.

Call us for write to us for the most appropriate location for constructing a bathroom.


  • Septic tank must never face north east, south-east, or south west corner.
  • It should not directly touch the compound wall. In fact the tank must be at least two feet away from the wall.
  • If there is a scarcity of space, the tank must be in the northern corner of west. However, make sure that the tank is at least two feet away from the wall of your compound.
  • As per vaastu for septic tank, the length of the tank must be in the east-west, while the breadth should be in the south-north.

Things To Keep In Mind

  • You should never have outlets in the south. However, in case the vent is in the southern direction it must be turned to north or east.
  • Bathroom and kitchen pipes must have their outlets in the north or east direction.
  • The bathroom pipes and toilet pipes must be diverted to the north-west or west direction.
  • The gutter can be in any other direction except for south.
  • Pipes that come from the upper floor must never be in the south-west corner.
  • The garage must always be built in the southeast or northwest of a house.
  • When designing a garage make sure at least three feet of walking space is left inside after the car is parked. This ensures free movement of air and light.
  • The car shed must never touch the compound wall or building.
  • Preferably, the garage gate should face east or north. It is important to make sure that the height of the gate is not more than the height of the main gate of the house (affixed at the compound wall). Also, the gate must open freely, without any obstruction.
  • Trash or inflammable material must never be stored inside a garage.
  • The floor in the garage should slope towards the eastern or northern direction.

Car Parking

  • If you place your car in the west side of a northwest located garage, you will undergo a lot of traveling.
  • If a car is parked in the southwestern corner, it will require slight repair work on a regular basis.
  • Never park a car in the northeastern direction. This is because northeast is where the heavenly forces flow; a parked car would block these forces. However, at the same time, if the garage is in the basement, parking in the northeastern side is permitted.
  • A garage located in the southwest would mean rare usage of the vehicle and constant repairing.
  • When parking, always park the vehicle with its front facing east or north. This will guarantee that the vehicle would never get worked up.
  • If you park the car facing west or south side, possibilities are that the car will face fire hazards.

The smallest of articles can make a huge difference in the way your luck runs for you. Doors and windows are not merely passages for insulation or for people to enter but are also gateways for positive and negative energies to come into the house. If a window is designed incorrectly in the wrong direction, it can pave way for the negative energies to come in and spell disaster for the inhabitants. Conversely, if the doors and windows are constructed in the right direction, they can bring in a lot of prosperity and luck.

This is also agreed to by Braunth Sanhita, which in one excerpt says-

“Mool Dwaaram Naanayyarabhisanthathi Roopdurya, Gatpal Patra Pramathibhishch Thanmadulau shrich nuyath”
Translation: The main door of a residence must be bigger than any other door in the house. Also, it must be more beautiful compared to the others. This helps bring in luck and prosperity.

Here are a few tips which need to be kept in mind when designing the doors and windows according to vaastu for house:

  • According to vaastu for house structure, a house must at all times have even numbers of windows and doors (e.g. 2, 4, 6, 8, etc).
  • When fixing the windows and doors, it is important to keep cross-ventilation in mind. Also, it’s essential to fix windows and doors opposite to one another to allow more light and air to enter.
  • Doors must never be placed at the center of a wall.
  • South facing houses must have north facing entrances so that they fall at the eastern half.
  • North facing houses must have north facing entrances so that they fall at the eastern half of the side.
  • West facing houses must have their entrance towards West, to make sure the main door falls at the Northern half of the side.
  • West facing houses must have their entrance towards West, to make sure the main door falls at the Northern half of the side.
  • The entrance for east facing houses must be fixed towards East, to make sure the main door falls towards the Northern half of the side.
  • The main gates of two houses facing each other must never open towards each other. Doors such as these are very inauspicious.
  • Teak is the best wood for making doors and windows.
  • Square or uneven furnishing articles must be avoided.
  • All the windows must have symmetry and must be proportionate in height.
  • There must be absolutely no obstruction, such as plants, Temple, staircases, and the like, in front of the main entrance.
  • Construct doors in the beginning and end of a staircase. For detailed information on this topic visit vaastu for staircase.
