Toilets and bathrooms are – or tend to become – a major source of negative energy if they are not built as per the rules and guidelines of Vastu.

Hence, in this article, I will reveal to you the best location, internal arrangement of items and the most efficient Vastu tips which you can – and must – apply to make Vastu compliant toilets and bathrooms in your home.

As per Vastu shastra, the toilets and bathrooms in a home must be separate and not attached, but there are over 7 billion people on earth and 70% of earth’s surface is water, hence the space is limited for living and thus attached toilets or attached bathrooms – as some people call them – have found a way into our homes.

But this doesn’t mean that if you have attached bathrooms or toilets in your home then you cannot do Vastu for them.

You can easily do Vastu for them also and that’s what you are going to learn here.

But before you take any action further, I want you to go through the next section of this article which tells you the importance of doing Vastu for toilets and bathrooms in your home.

Also, the next section makes you aware of the common problems and issues associated with Vastu’s non-compliant bathrooms and toilets; hence if you are facing similar troubles in your life, you can easily pinpoint the reason for such troubles and apply suitable remedies to get rid of them.

Vastu Compliant Toilets and Bathroom – How To Do It The Correct Way?

This section of the article reveals to you the best Vastu tips, location, wall colours, internal arrangement of items and much more in a bathroom while complying with the rules and regulations of Vastu shastra.

Making an attached toilet a Vastu compliant one is a three-step process.

In the first step, you will learn the best location, as per Vastu, where you can make a toilet or bathroom in your home.

Have a look at the image below and you will be able to easily understand the best and the second-best locations, as per Vastu, within a home where you can make a toilet or bathroom.

Since you have seen the image and understood that the best location for a toilet or bathroom is the North-West part of the home (not the North-West corner), see carefully that I have left the corners in the image.

The second-best location for a toilet is the North-East part and not the North-East corner, and the South-West part leaving the South-West corner, you are now ready for the second step in making a Vastu compliant toilet.

The second step is to identify the internal arrangements of items such as a geyser, bathtub, taps, mirror, commode etc. in an attached bathroom.

To make this process simpler, I have created another image which tells you the best possible arrangements of essential items and fittings in a bathroom.

Since you now have seen – and hopefully – understood the internal arrangement of items for a Vastu compliant attached bathroom, you are now ready to learn and understand the best Vastu tips for Vastu compliant attached toilet or bathroom.
