A toilet is a place where tend to shed away and get rid of all our negative energies. A toilet completes the house. It is one and the only region which attracts almost everybody as soon as they enter the house. The sanitary conditions prevailing in one’s bathroom gives a brief insight of the character of a person and the family background. This is one of the foremost reasons why many people ask for the bathroom upon entering a foreign house. Even if the house is magnificent, an untidy bathroom can spoil the prestige in a few moments. It is advisable to design the toilet according to the Vastu principles because it the place where one undergoes the self cleaning process and in order to get a healthy mind and body, the right structure should be adapted.
Following are the advices and the methods by which you can design a Vaastu perfect toilet:
Ideally, the toilet must be positioned in the north-west direction. If this is not possible, the other alternative is positioning it in the south east. These two are the only directions which are suitable for positioning the toilet in a house. It should be outside the house but in case it is required inside the house, the above guidelines should be followed. In no case should a toilet be constructed in the north east and the east directions. Avoid centralizing the toilet. It should not be in the middle of the house. It should be at a considerable distance from the dining room and the kitchen.
If there are two windows in the toilet, the larger of the two should be in the north and the smaller one should be in the west. Coming to the door, the eastern side is considered as auspicious for the door or the entrance. Proper care should be taken to drain water out of the toilet. The slope should be towards the north and east so that the waste water flows in the north east direction. The choice of the paint color is also important. Heavy shades such as red, black and green should be avoided. Lighter shades such as white are desirable.
A toilet room is where we shed the wastes of our body. Hence, it is bound to be less hygienic than the rest of our rooms. But it is our duty to keep it as hygienic and spic and span as possible. A clean toilet does not host harmful bacteria which might otherwise cause dreadful diseases and infections. By keeping the toilet dry, we can reduce the chances of it being habituated by bacteria to a minimum. The water storage facility in the toilet should be in the eastern side.
The toilet should be elevated about a foot from the ground and should be properly cleaned. Care should be taken that applying Vastu tips does not hamper the privacy of the individual in any way. It is preferred to use vitrified tiles on the walls of the bathroom, but any light colored paint would also do.
