  3. The bedroom of the owner in Naishritya is considered appropriate as per vastu.
  4. The verandah in Naishritya should be even leveled.

  1. As you said above we must avoid windows at south west direction how can i do it when my plot is south west facing towards the road and the front view of my house is towards south west,??????

    1. Hello, this is a common situation. Vastu suggests ‘no windows’ in south-west because of afternoon hot sun from that direction. There are few things which can be done in such cases.
      1. Avoid keeping big windows in this direction and use DGU glass approx (280 per sqft) or Pyrolytic coating glass something like SGG Reflectasol (Rs 90 per sqft) or any other reflective glass
      2. Put a screen like Stone or GRC jaali ( Rs 350 per sqft) in front of Window as per overall elevation
      3. Use heavy curtains with extra lining.

      Hope this helps. Thanks for visiting.
