Nowadays, those people who have investments and want to take their careers to the top, take a risk and open commercial complexes and give various showrooms on rent.

Many people who are willing to earn some extra yet regular income prefer earning through rent, all they need is to make some investment in starting. Commercial Complexes are constructed like big hotels with many showrooms, refreshment areas, and entertaining rooms to attract a large number of populations. These complexes can be made in the form of malls or according to the industry. There are two types of complexes available:


“Mall” is a casually used word for a commercial complex because in this complex a wide range of showrooms is opened, from clothing to electronics
to entertainment. There are showrooms that cater to daily needs, occasional purposes as well as for entertainment purposes. You can get anything you want under one roof.

Industry Based Complex

These complexes are constructed by keeping industry in mind. These types of complexes are built according to the industry, and all the showrooms
cater to a common product. For example, in the clothing complex, you will find clothing items, from women's clothing to men's to kids' wear in every showroom. If a person needs to cover one field at a time, then these complexes serve the best as you will find every type of clothing under one roof.

Well, when questions relating to architecture arise, Vastu Shastra comes out as a guide. It offers many guidelines to construct the complex to earn maximum and enjoy recognition all around the city.

Let’s have a look at some of the Vastu Tips for Commercial Complex

  1. Ratio and Shape of the Plot:-
    To start a commercial complex, the first step is to choose the plot and location. Vastu advises studying the most preferred and common area of the city and choose a rectangular plot for the complex. Also, keep a check on the ratio of the plot, make sure it is properly divided into 1:1 or 1:2 as it is considered auspicious for the owner as well as the occupants of the showrooms.

  2. Open Spaces:-
    Constructing a complex is not an easy task; it takes proper consideration and thought to make one. To attract more customers, it is important to make a complex attractive, spacious and open. Vastu suggests the north and east sides of the complex must be left open as it attracts money, opportunities, and growth to the complex. You can also leave some space for the lawn in the north direction and parking on the east side. The slope of the land should be from the south to north and west to east. Otherwise, it can cause financial losses.

  3. Placement of the Main Door:-
    The entry of the complex must be wide and decorated. Vastu advises making the main gate of the complex attractive to entice people and make profits. Also, avoid the southwest zone for the main gate as it can increase the outflow of money and bid adieu to growth and opportunities. The height of the main door should be more than that of the individual doors of various showrooms.

  4. Windows:-
    Every complex needs to be air-conditioned, ventilated, and airy so that nobody dies from suffocation. Vastu advises building lots of windows on the north and east walls to keep the area ventilated. You can construct windows on the south and west walls as well but keep a check on the sunlight; direct sunlight can be dangerous for the items stored.

  5. Temple in the Complex:-
    A small temple constructed in the northeast corner or the center of the building is considered auspicious. The entrance of the temple can be from any of the four sides but make sure the entrance of the temple is different from the entrance of the complex. Also, make sure the area near the temple is free from dust, dirt, and polluted items. You can light lamps, incense sticks, and candles in the temple to make the environment positive and lively.

Some other tips to follow

  • The major construction of the building must be done on the south or west side of the complex.
  • You can keep generators and other electrical equipment in the southeast corner.
  • The staircase should be in the southwest and should be in a clockwise direction while climbing.
  • Bore-well, the underground tank must be in the northeast direction whereas the overhead tank in the southwest direction.
  • No complex is complete without toilets; make sure to construct one toilet on every floor. Vastu guides to construct the toilet in northwest or western corner. Northeast corner for toilets is strictly prohibited as this corner is meant to be kept clean and away from negativities.
  • If there is a lawn in the complex area, make sure there are lots of big trees planted in the area. Plants and trees keep the environment fresh, beautiful, and alive. Vastu suggests planting big trees in the south and west direction whereas tender plants are to be planted in the north or east corner.
  • Clean the lawn every day; it is considered inauspicious to have dead leaves, dried plants, and flowers on the lawn.
  • Try to use each and every inch of space in the complex and leave no space for the negative energies to enter.

If you are planning to construct a complex, take no time, just follow the tips and get it ready.
