Choosing the Perfect Colors for Your Home: A Vastu Shastra Guide


When it comes to making your home a peaceful and happy place, Vastu Shastra, an ancient Indian way of building houses, gives very useful advice. One important part of Vastu Shastra is picking the right colors for your home. The correct colors can make positive energy flow better, make you feel better, and improve your living space. In this detailed article, we’ll look at how to pick the best colors for your home following Vastu Shastra.

According to Vastu Acharya Manoj Shrivastava, colors are not just for looks in Vastu Shastra; they have deep meanings. Each color is linked to one of five things – Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space. Knowing this connection is crucial when choosing colors for different rooms in your home.

Vastu Shastra links different colors to the five things this way:

  1. Earthy Colors (Brown, Beige, Mustard Yellow): These colors stand for the Earth and give a sense of stability. They are good for bedrooms and common areas like the living and dining rooms.
  2. Watery Colors (Blue, Aqua): These colors bring calm and peace, like the Water element. They are great for the living room and places for meditation.
  3. Fiery Colors (Red, Shades of Red): These colors show energy and passion, like the Fire element. They aren’t recommended for bedrooms but can work well in the kitchen or dining area as accents.
  4. Airy Greens: Green, linked to the Air element, represents growth and harmony. Use it in study rooms, home offices, or places where you need to concentrate and be creative.
  5. White: White represents the Space element and means purity and clarity. You can use it anywhere in the house because it’s versatile.

When you pick colors, think about what each room is for. Balance is important, so don’t use one color too much. The amount of natural light in a room matters too. In darker rooms, choose lighter colors. But as Vastu Acharya Manoj Shrivastava says, “Even though Vastu Shastra gives good advice, don’t forget what you like. Your home should show your taste and style.”

Talking to a Vastu expert can give you personal advice based on your home’s energy. With these ideas, you can choose colors that go with Vastu Shastra and make a happy living space that makes you feel good.
