You should definitely inform your client about this benefit as the square or rectangular plots of the building do not just bring stability but should be given credit for dwellers prosperity and wealth.
The first thing buyers are apprehensive about while buying the property is the entrance. The entrance of the apartment is auspicious if it is in the North East or North of East, South East of South or North West of West side of the flat. If the apartment you are showing to your clients has the entrance with any of the above-said directions, do highlight this benefit.
Vastu is all about balancing the five elements of nature. Kitchen represents the fire region of the house and therefore it should be placed appropriately in South East corner of the flat. Moreover, the slab where the cooking top would be placed should be in the East direction so the cook faces the same direction.
Master bedroom should be in South, West or South-West corner of the house. Similarly, the construction of the room should be in such a way that the head board of the bed is in South or West corner of the bedroom.
Ideal direction for kids’ room is West. If West is not possible, room in any direction can be allotted to kids except South or South East. If the bedrooms are located in the said directions, inform your client about that. If the bedrooms are located as per Vastu specifications, it brings peace, harmony and growth in the home.
Washrooms and toilets should be situated in the South West or South corner of the flat. This ensures that the air and ambience in the flat remain pure as the wind blows in the direction from North East to South West.
Placement of water storage tanks
The water tank is constructed or placed on the North East corner of the building. It is auspicious for two reasons. Firstly is, that sun rays reflect on this direction. Second is, that the water flowing in North, East or North-East corner brings prosperity to the resident.
