Store Room Vastu

Storerooms show the idea of adjustment and usability. We store excess items in storerooms so that we can use them when the need arises. It should be constructed in a way that it comes out to be safe and stable. Thus, it becomes important to follow Vastu Tips for creating a storeroom.


The storeroom should be placed in the north-western or southwest corner of the home. This direction is appropriate as it prevents the accumulation of things. In case you want to store heavy equipment in the room, then the southwest corner is just perfect. Never locate the storeroom in the east or north direction. The favorable position for the entrance of the storeroom is southwest. The store must have two shutters.


Store room's height should not be same as of other rooms. The height of the storeroom must be elevated. The height should be such that it is not reachable by children. Light colors such as yellow, white, or sky blue must be used in a storeroom. The reason behind this is that these colors reflect and re-reflect the sunlight. This ensures that the sun rays keep the entire room bacteria-free and dry.
