Tips for Vaastu design for West Facing Homes

As mentioned above, it’s the entrance of the house that matters more. According to Vastu Shastra, in a west-facing home, the main door or the entrance of the house can be located in any of the four padas – 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th.

Here’s a simple explanation of what are padas. Imagine the west side of your home as a straight line running from North West to South West. Divide it into nine equal parts. The first segment in the north-west is the 1st pada, and the last segment in the South West is the 9th pada.

The main door or entrance of the house should be positioned in any one of the following padas (or segments) to reap the benefits of Vastu Shastra – 3, 4, 5 or 6.

  • Padas (or segments) 3,4,5, or 6 are the best-suited locations to place the entrance or the main door of a west-facing home.
  • If you cannot position the entrance in the above padas, then you can place it in padas 1 or 2. While this may not give as good Vastu vibes as placing the door in the padas 3,4,5 or 6, it won’t give you negative vibes as well.
  • However, remember that the padas 7,8,9 are not considered auspicious according to Vastu Shastra and avoid placing the main door of your west-facing home in these segments at all costs.
