There’s nothing wrong with applying Vaastu Shastra guidelines to maintain your child’s health and happiness, as will also help you in organizing the child’s room in a more balanced manner. Follow these simple tips to ensure the good health of your child.

  • Head position: Your child’s head should face south or east while sleeping. It is best if the bed is positioned in the southwest corner of the room. If possible, beds should not be placed under wall joints and should be positioned a few inches away from the wall.
  • Study Table: Your child’s study table must be placed in a place of positive energy, as this will be the place where he will study. Don’t place it under a bathroom and ensure that the student should always study facing east, north or north-east.
  • Clear the clutter: When not in use, make sure, to keep the table clear so, it doesn’t hinder energy flow. Additionally, avoid sticking the study table to the wall, leaving some gap between the table and wall. A square or rectangle-shaped table is ideal for a study area. Ideally, the study table should have a square or rectangular shape.
  • Organise the room: The opposite of the bed should never have a mirror nor reflective surfaces like a TV because it is believed to spell bad luck. Make sure the mirror isn’t placed on the south wall, but ideally, you should place it on the right or left side of the bed. It is important not to place a mirror near your child’s desk where this could cause increased pressure.
  • Some fresh air: Windows and doors should face east or north to maximize the amount of morning sunlight that comes into the room and brings positive rays. Door shutters should be at least two and shouldn’t face the bed. If possible, they should face the bed diagonally.
  • Colour combination: Colours influence our kids’ moods and well-being. It is more efficient to work with bright colours such as lemon yellow, white and green. It is best to stay away from curtains with deep colours or geometric patterns. In terms of freshness and calming effects, green is the best choice. It is also advisable to use yellow since it adds a healthy glow to the room, which will have the same effect on the children.
