Some decor changes or alteration in the positions of furniture at home may herald prosperity and good luck.

The lockdown days may not be particularly enjoyable for some people as they complain that their families have lost peace of mind. The negative energy that may have accumulated must be the reason for all the annoyance and exasperation. You could use these lockdown days to make some decor changes or alteration in the positions of the furniture to herald prosperity and good luck into your homes. Those who believe in the power and truth of vastusastra could follow these five tips.

It is vital to fill the interiors with natural light and air. Houses that are dark and gloomy are generally considered to bring in bad luck. Placing lush green plants near the main entrance would bring good luck. Keeping freshly bloomed flowers in a vase too could fill the interiors with positive vibes. A family photo should be placed at a spot where it is visible as soon as one enters the house. Seeing the picture of the happy family is sure to lift your spirits.

It is better to avoid huge and chunky furniture pieces in the living room. Minimal furniture in simple and elegant designs could make spaces look amazing. Huge furniture shouldn’t be placed right in the middle of the dining space. The dining table should be placed a bit towards the side and not in the centre. The dining table represents health and well being. So, a messy dining table wouldn’t be desirable.

Installing a mirror on one of the interior walls would not only make the spaces look vaster but would fill the house with positive energy. The mirror could be placed at a spot where it reflects the image of the Laughing Buddha figurine, which is sure to bring in good luck and positivity. However, do not keep a mirror in the verandah or in the sit-out wall as it would reflect the positive vibes away.

Painting the bedroom in shades of pink would fill the rooms with love and happiness. Excellent ventilation inside the bedrooms is pivotal. The colour of the bed spread and lamp shade, the paintings on the wall and the mirror on the cupboard are all factors that could influence our moods. The reflection of the person, while lying down, should not be visible on the mirror.

Bathroom is where negative energy could accumulate inside a house. So, the bathrooms should be cleaned regularly using disinfectants. A palm full of rock salt could be kept somewhere in the dry spots to fill the bathroom with positive energy. Do not forget to replace the rock salt once it has dissolved in the bowl.
