Aside from the kitchen, your living room is one of the most important parts of the house.

It’s where you spend most of your leisure time. And whether you’re there with your family or friends, one thing is for certain. Your living room has to be cozy enough so that you feel the most comfortable while doing whichever activity you choose.

And in order to do that, you need to use the teachings of vastu to guide you through.

How Using Vastu for Home Décor Can Help

Your living room provides you with the utmost comfort. But it also serves as a place where you welcome guests and do your more constructive work. As such, it serves a dual purpose. Ergo, it’s crucial that you direct most of the positive energy from your surroundings its way and equip it in such a way that it funnels out any negative energy that may enter.

And since vastu is a study of energy relation with the elements, it is the best source if you need to decorate your living room, and keep it clean of all adverse energies.

Vastu tips for Living Room Decoration

· Colors

Avoid darker colors such as black and red. Instead, use soft colors like white, soft yellow, blue and green to decorate and complement the rest of your décor. Along with vastu, the significance of color plays a huge part for every style of home décor. Keep it in mind when deciding to decorate.

· Furniture Shape

Ovals and circular shaped furniture do not provide as much finesse to your home, so square or rectangular furniture is usually the best option. Keep the color of the furniture to a lighter shade and buy a better quality fabric to cover them.

· Drapes

For drapes, use light colors for your North-East windows. But use heavy curtains for South-West to complement the living area.

· Lighting

When fixing a chandelier, try hanging it in the South or West of the living area, rather than the middle of the ceiling. Not only does it give your room a unique look, it also illuminates better. Use soothing color lights and make sure that the room is lit brightly.

· Water Features

With water features, such as fountains or aquariums, place them in the North, East or North-East side of the room to take advantage of a water barrier for negative energies.
