Vaastu inspired colours for different rooms in your homes

Vaastu Shastra is a traditional Indian system of architecture. Vaastu lays important ancient wisdom regarding the principles of design, layout, measurement, ground preparation, space arrangement and spatial geometry. Vastu Shastra is the important wisdom of laying out a peaceful house plan and architectural design that exudes positive vibes and keeps the negative ones at bay. Ancient Indian wisdom realised the importance of colours and mood in that different colours are responsible for different moods that we experience therefore keeping the house as peaceful as possible, they came out with a psychological colour scheme that is in sync with the happy moods of the people. 

Colour based therapy is essential in balancing the mind, body and soul and in our busy lives why not incorporate this wisdom to create a sublime atmosphere for ourselves. 

The range of colours is known to stimulate different energy into the different spaces and influence the overall vibes in the house. Vastu shastra postulates that a well thought out placement of the house is influenced by the colour and directions and ground preparation of the layout plan of the house. 

Vastu Shastra illustrates that certain colours are good for the mood or the brain and maintain a balance between the various stresses in our lives and the happiness that comes around. With our busy lives in a bustling city, we are overwhelmed with work and worry therefore picking the right colour scheme in your house inspired by Vastu is the hook you want to nail. 

Here is the right pattern of colour scheme for your interiors that will make your familial life happy and prosperous. 

BEDROOM



The bedroom is the space where we rest and spend the calmest and meditational time in our house. Making your bedrooms your own living sanctuary is essential and therefore picking the right colours according to Vastu becomes essential. Natural and earthy colours like blues and greens are very fruitful for the bedroom walls. They remind us of nature and also exude calm and humble energy. Give your bedrooms a positive aura with an all-white aesthetics. For the bedroom doors, you can choose blue or pastel shades that are light in shade. 

Avoid the colours purple and red that could signify conflict or high blood pressure. Vastu based colour schemes also affect the health patterns of the body therefore avoiding a dark and opaque colour could help you get a calmer surrounding. For the furniture and almirahs make sure that the colours are responding in the natural tones of the rooms like brown and beige. 



LIVING ROOM

 

The living room is the common area where you get most of the traffic of the house. Whether it be guests or kids or pets even, you need the place as happy and lively as it can be. The best colours for your living rooms would be white and neutral tones. Bright white, beige, cream, light pink hues are the best colour schemes for the room that should have balance and energy flow. These colours represent purity, goodness, calmness, beauty and charm in your house. 

Make the furniture of the living room also in contrast with the neutral palette of the walls like make the cushions and pillows and even floor coverings like rugs and carpets into the brighter shades of green, pink, yellow and like so. Gold and turquoise colours represent wealth and royalty, adding such colours posit the positive flow for all these things to come. 

Living rooms should be faced in the direction of the light and the rising of the sun should face the front walls of the room so that it is brighter during the day and also dulls down during the night. The neutral shades of colour help generate and energy and light flow in the rooms. Try avoiding black and greys for they affect the mood and the charming nature of the living rooms.



DINING ROOM

 

The dining area should have the following east and south-east direction. The colours that would be perfect for the dining area according to Vastu are Saffron, orange, yellow, peach and beige. These colours reflect ease in digestion and consumption of the food. A dining area is a conjunction of family time and communion, therefore people-friendly colours that postulate happiness and togetherness are vital. A dining area should be closer to the kitchen to maintain the ease of accessing food. The colour scheme should revolve around healing, devotion, creativity, happiness and joy. 

The colours to avoid are purple and violet as these affect the digestion and consumption of the people. 



BATHROOM

You shouldn’t decorate your restrooms in dark colours as they do not give a calmer effect on the house and according to Vastu absorb the evil vibes and harmonies of the place. 

The Colour scheme that you should apply in your restrooms is a light shade of yellow, lime green, pink or blue that helps give the place a little bit of colour and life. The bathroom should exude peace and vibrancy in the house and therefore going for a lighter yet colourful palette is the perfect blend Vastu advice on. The colours green and cream are known for peace and calm therefore a contrasting palette of such colour would look good in these rooms.

The bathroom tiles and flooring should also be in neutral colours in order to let the light reflect and provide a clean look. 



CHILDREN’S ROOM

The Children’s room has a happy and playful vibe. You want to apply a more vibrant palette in these rooms that can facilitate balance and concentration like white and blue and shades of red that can posit competency and intelligence. Shades of light green and light yellow that represents growth, youth and balance. The colours of the walls should exude joy and happiness along with the curtains and study Almira and cabinets. Therefore choosing a brighter colour help in reflecting the calm and competent nature of the room. 

Keep the lights brighter and make different seating arrangements according to the need of the kids like a study table and playroom area. These areas help compartmentalise your child’s life and don’t let them intermix. The contrasting colours should be in the range of vibrant yet lighter colour palettes. 



POOJA ROOM / MEDITATIONAL ROOM

Pooja rooms are sacred to us and are reflective of the very positive energy of the house. The colours could range from a number of tones like white and cream or yellow and orange to exude vibrancy. Do not opt for red or black for your meditational or pooja rooms so that they actually reflect those positive vibes and not counter them. Avoid the use of wallpapers in the pooja rooms. These places are holy and pure to us, therefore, using a lighter scheme of colour would keep the room a light and bright space. Yellow is the colour of the holy goddess and also reflect positivity and vibrant tones. 

 

KITCHEN 

What is the best kitchen colour according to Vastu for your kitchens?

For the kitchen area, red and orange are the best colours. The kitchen is an area where our food is prepared and served and should therefore create a tone for happiness and hunger. The kitchen has the fire element in it therefore creating a brighter place is the inspiration. Therefore warm and bright colours like yellow, orange, saffron, yellow-red would be nice for the walls. These colours are known to exude love, warmth and satisfaction. For the pantry or storage cabinets light yellow, orange and green palettes would work as they cater to freshness and nature and ensure positivity and good health. For the rest of the kitchen place that would require a stone like granite or marble, keep the colours neutral like white, beige or lighter hued browns that would be very calm and forgiving. 

The colours that you should avoid in the kitchen space are the dark colours that are known to absorb heat and light from the environment like black or dark brown. These colours make the space dark and dingy and don’t let in the natural light of the house. They will also absorb the heat and make the space warmer.
