Recommend placing the master bedroom and the CEO’s (top higher position) room in the office in the south west corner. Because the south west corner is the corner of strong relationships and connections. A person is always safe and happy in this part of the house. The owner of this bedroom enjoys both good health and wealth. It is also the most comfortable place in a building.

kitchen should not be in the south-west

Place of worship and kitchen

As previously mentioned, reserve the south west corner solely for the master bedroom, as it’s not conducive to productive activities.

If we talk about the kitchen, according to Vastu the kitchen should not be in the south west. With a kitchen in the south west, one can expect fights among family members. This is because the kitchen stove represents fire which can create turmoil and hinder the stability brought by the south west.

the place of worship

The location of your home’s prayer area is crucial because it’s used for morning and evening worship. So, when choosing the place of worship, select its direction carefully. In Vastu Science, the south west corner is the direction of negative power, while the north-east is full of positivity. So, positioning your deity in the highly energetic north-east corner, rather than the south west, yields the best and most fruitful results.

A special thing to note, the south west is also not good for plants because in this corner the plants do not get enough sun, which is one of the main things required for the plants to grow. If desired, indoor plants can be kept.


locker money bag, jewellery

Boost Finance

The south west corner is the house of prosperity. In Vastu, advice suggests keeping your locker, money bag, jewelry, and important property documents in the south west corner. Placing these items here is believed to multiply your prosperity and bring happiness. You can enhance your financial vibes by including red fabric or items, as well as a citrine crystal, in your money box or locker, as the color red is associated with wealth and prosperity.  Apart from this, you can also increase energy by placing a red colored bulb on the southwest wall.

To avoid financial problems and heavy expenses, the main safe and locker should open in the north or north-east direction.


water tank in the south west

Water tank and basement

Placing an underground water tank in the south west is a major taboo in Vastu. This may cause disruption or hindrance in important tasks related to the lives of the people living in the house. Furthermore, having a basement in the southwest can also cause delays and obstacles in completing important tasks. And this can make the residents of the house feel depressed and anxious.

To counteract negative energy in your home’s southwest corner, consider installing a rooftop water tank in that direction. This overhead tank should be located at a strategic point in the house. Placing the tank in the south west corner yields the best results. The west direction is of Lord Varun, the god of water. That is why having a water tank above the head will definitely have a good effect on your living space.
