Placement of the Main door and other rooms in a North facing house

The placements of the main doors and other rooms are very crucial in determining whether a north facing property is good or not. Lets cover the placemnt of main door, followed by staircase, kitchen, temple, and septic tank in such as property.

Main door placement in north facing house vastu-


The main entrance or the door is an important threshold for any property. So, having a right placement of the main door can make your overall north facing house vastu good or bad. as the main door connects the inside energy with the outer environment, paying special attention to its placement is of utmost importance. Though for any property, having a north facing entrance is considered as very good, but when it comes to a north facing one, there are several other things to consider as well. For instance, having a north west main door can bring severe bad luck for the occupants.

So, we need to understand some other aspects of vastu. There are 8 steps in the north side of a house, which are known as padas in vastu. Each of these have its own specifications and importance. From left to right (north east to north west), these are called- Roga, Naga, Mukhya, Bhallat, Soma, Bhujang, Aditi and Diti. Refer to the following image for more understanding.

North Facing Door

For north facing property, the 5th pada, the soma is the auspicious one for placing the main door, as it is the house of lord Kuber. Apart from it, padas Mukhya, Bhallat and Diti are most auspicious as well, which are the 3rd, 4th and 8th padas. The Mukhya is the main deity of the house and thus grant the manifestation strength of the vastu. Bhallat is deity who grant abundant wealth. Diti is the mother of asuras, but also grants riches.

Thus, if you own a north facing house vastu, pick either of these 4 padas for placing main door.

Placement of the staircase for North facing house

After the main door, comes the turn of the staircase placement in a north facing home. It is important to note that this holds true for both internal and external staircase. So, follow the following advise for it, that has been offered by vastu experts in India-

  • Avoid north side altogether as it can cause hindrance in financial gain.
  • Particularly avoid placing the staircase in the north east corner as it can cause neurological issues.
  • South, west, south-east, south-west, north-west directions are okay for placing the staircase.
  • Place the staircase in the south west corner or west side in counter-clockwise direction.
  • Make the staircase in clockwise orientation if placement of staircase in the other recommended direction.

So, the orientation depends of the placement of the staircase in the plot. So, consulting a vastu expert is crucial to ensure you are making the home vastu compliant.

Placement of puja room in a north facing house vastu

Puja room is of special importance in every household as it houses the energy of the deities. As per vastu, placement of Pooja room in north facing house can be carried out in few ways. The west direction is the best for placing the pooja room. This will ensure that the idols or photos of gods will face towards the east. This is the precise reason why most of the ancient Indian temples are designed in west as well. However, the exact opposite can be done as well, implying placing temple in east to face the idols in the west.

Apart from these, north east, east or west directions are also suitable for placing a pooja room in a north facing vastu.

Placement of kitchen in north facing house vastu

Kitchen is as holy a place just as a temple. So, its placement is quite important in every home, and north facing house vastu. It is a common belief that north east is the best direction for a kitchen, as it is the zone of water element. However, it is the wrong direction for a north facing house one as it can destroy it. It can cause some severe neurological issues and family disputes, and might cause legal and financial issues.

So, go for south east or south direction in general. However, the north west direction is quite good for such a property as well.

Placement of bathroom and septic tank in a north facing house vastu

Both these rooms are filled with water elements and it accumulates negative energy from the entire house. So, its placement plays an important role. Usually most septic tanks are placing right in the front of the house, on underground level, as it can be connected to waste pipeline. However, for a north facing house vastu, it can be problematic as such orientation will align with directions north, north west or north east. But, making either of bathroom or septic tank is a big no, as it can disrupt the water element and as a result it can damage the functions of the kidneys of the occupants of the house. Moreover, it can also cause financial troubles. So, vastu experts highly recommends against placing either septic tank or bathroom on front side of the plot.

Go for South of South West (SSW), West of North West (WNW), and East of South East (ESE) zones are good for placing either of these facilities.
