# SCIENTIFIC VASTU FOR DOORS AND WINDOWS | An Architect Explains

In Vastu Shastra, the door and window positions are important because they not only let in the air, light and energy into the rooms of the house, but also provide protection against negative energies around. If they are in the right positions, then  there is a positive flow of air, light and energy from the outside to the inside and from room to room, thus enhancing the health and the lives of the inmates and creating a feeling of contentment and happiness.

Before designing and constructing doors and windows for your next house, take into consideration the points listed here as they play a crucial role in determining the flow of Vastu energy in your house.  Since Vastu is a science, every guideline is based on logic and reasoning.  As an Architect, I have attempted to explain each of these guidelines rationally and scientifically under the following headings, so that you have a choice and can decide what you want to follow or don’t instead of looking at Vastu as a superstition:

###### HOW MANY DOORS AND WINDOWS SHOULD THERE BE IN A HOUSE?

Even number of doors – This must be due to the symmetric designs of houses in the earlier days. Even number of rooms were placed on either side of the line of symmetry. So the number of doors was also even.

There should be an even number of windows in the house, like 2, 4, 6, 8 etc. Avoid odd number of windows like 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 .  The Reason – It must have something to do with symmetry and the structure of the house, because in earlier times, the buildings had wooden roofs with rafters etc. So the positioning of windows was based on the roof grid. However, you can have any number of windows, depending on your requirement.

###### WHAT IS THE BEST LOCATION FOR DOORS IN A HOUSE?

For internal doors – Ideally, doors and windows should be placed opposite to each other so that both the positive and negative cycles are completed. The Reason – This is done to enable the proper flow of air thus facilitating cross-ventilation between rooms. If there’s a presence of stagnant air in your premises, having an insufficient flow of air within your house can promote the growth and development of harmful virus and bacteria. The resultant stagnant air arising out of this may not be suitable for the house inmates. Proper ventilation thus ensures happy and healthy living.

Any door should not be placed in the centre of a wall. It should ideally be far away from the centre while taking adequate care to not place it in the extreme corner either. The Reason – It is  best if any opening is not in the corner as cracks can form and some bearing is needed to support the lintel of the opening. Doors should also be avoided in the middle of a wall as structurally it is not very sound.

If your house comprises of two main doors then, in that case, opt for a combination of doors in East with North and West, West with North and East. However, the direction of South and West/East should be avoided as it’s considered inauspicious. The Reason – Doors on opposite walls help in the flow of air and energy and prevent stagnation of air within the house.

For the Main door –  it is advisable to follow the rules explained below. The Reason – Every time you enter your house you activate a presiding energy in relationship to the mandala of the house at that point. A door must be precisely located in order to activate the beneficial energy.

###### WHAT IS THE BEST LOCATION OF THE MAIN DOOR?

To figure out where to place a main door, imagine that you are standing outside the house, facing the front of the house. Divide the front facade of the house into two parts with an imaginary, middle, vertical line. The door should be placed towards the centre, either in the left or the right half, depending on the direction the house faces.

For a East facing House – Avoid placing a door in the left half (South-East), instead place it in the right half, that is towards the North-East. The Reason – Since the North-East corner of a plot is to be left open, for sunlight to enter the house, it makes sense to enter from this space but only after leaving as much of window openings towards the North and East.

The door should not be at the corner of the walls, but a few feet away from the corner junction. The Reason -Its preferable to have more window openings towards the North and East to allow constant sunlight through the day. Since the door is opaque, it should be placed  away from the N-E corner, more to the centre.

For a South-facing House – Avoid placing a door in the left half (South-West), instead place it in the right half, that is  in the South-East. The Reason- It is always preferrable to have minimum number of openings in the South-West since the hot infra-red rays of the evening sunlight are projected maximum to this direction.

If a house has a main entrance in the South there should be one more corresponding to it in the North direction also. The Reason – To allow the constant light from the North into the house.

For a West-facing house – Avoid placing a door in the right half (South-West), instead place it in the left half, that is  in the  North-West. The Reason It is always preferrable to have few openings in the South-West since the hot infra-red rays of the evening sunlight are projected maximum to this direction.

If a house has a main entrance in the West it should have a corresponding door in the East also. The Reason -To allow maximum, useful UV rays found in the morning sunlight, into the house, since it is beneficial for health of the inamtes. (vitamin D synthesis)

For a North-facing house – Avoid placing a door in the right half (North-West), instead place it in the left half, that is in the North-East. The Reason Its preferable to have more openings in the North and East to allow sunlight constantly, through the day. Since the door is opaque, it should be placed more to the centre of the wall and windows should be kept in the North-East.

###### WHAT IS THE BEST LOCATION OF THE WINDOWS IN A HOUSE?

The windows should be opposite to the doors so that both the positive and negative cycles are completed. The Reason – This is to allow the proper flow of air from room to room thus facilitating cross-ventilation between rooms. If there’s a presence of stagnant air in your premises, having an insufficient flow of air within your house can promote the growth and development of harmful virus and bacteria.

The windows in the North wall should be more towards the North-East and should be long and wide.  The Reason – So that air and constant and useful morning light from North-East can permeate the house.

The windows in the East wall should be more towards the North-East and should be long and wide for the same reason as explained above.

Avoid too many windows in the South-West directionsThe Reason – The harmful, hot infra red rays of the Sunlight are projected maximum to the South-West direction in India. Hence it is preferable to have less openings in this direction.

###### WHAT ARE THE SPECIFICATIONS FOR DOORS AND WINDOWS?

All the windows in your house should ideally be of uniform and consistent shape while also being proportionate in height and size as well. Moreover, doors and windows should be rectangular in shape. Avoid having fancy shaped and irregular sized doors as they are not considered auspicious. The Reason – Uniform and consistent shapes looks more aesthetic than windows of different sizes and shapes. Rectangular shape is the most stable shape structurally.

Automatic doors should be avoided at all costs. As per Vastu, doors which close automatically are said to affect the health of children. The Reason – Automatic doors can malfunction and  there is the likelihood of children having their fingers stuck in the doors.

Doors and windows should be devoid of any damage or cracks. If any damage or cracks are there, they should ideally be replaced urgently as it’s considered to be extremely inauspicious as per Vastu. The Reason – The cracks can weaken the doors if they are not attended to immediately.

If your door or windows make noise or creaks while opening or closing, it should be repaired or replaced as soon as possible or it could result in unneeded quarrels in your house. The Reason – Creaking doors sound ominous and indicate loose hinges. They need to be tightened.

This post was about the Vastu guidelines for the positioning of the Doors and Windows during the construction of a House. Read about the different Stages in construction of a House here:

If you want to make the rest of the rooms of your house/apartment also Vastu compliant, then go to:

Hello Sir,

I Booked an apartment in 4th floor. Main Entrance is North Facing. Master Bedroom is in South West Corner. In that Master Bedroom, 3 doors are there(Bedroom Entrance, Bathroom attached and a Balcony Door). The Question is should we have 3 doors in this Bedroom?
Kind Regards,
Devi.
Hi Devi,
Most master bedrooms in apartments have 3 doors – the bedroom entrance door, the attached bathroom door and the door to the balcony. It is not a problem unless the positions of the doors interfere with the circulation within the room. If there is clear access to the doors and around the furniture in the room, why bother about the number of doors.

• May 19, 2014 at 1:20 pm

i live in a rented house with 11 doors
Hi Girija,
See my scientific explanation in this post about even and odd number doors and rest easy.

• July 12, 2014 at 6:31 am

I would like to know how many doors are to be installed in 30*40 site as per Hindu vasthu. please let me know.

Thanks and regards
Harsha Nayak p
Hi Harsha Nayak,
Even number of doors is recommended in Vastu Shastra.

• September 1, 2014 at 1:23 am

Dear Sir i am constructing a House in 30*40 site. in the Ground floor i planed 1 Puja Room,1 Bed room and 1 bath room. in 1st floor 2 bed room and 1 bath room. when we count total no of doors this include main and back door it comes 10 doors. kindly advise which door we should consider.
Hi Raghavendra,
As per vastu even number of doors is preferred to odd number. When counting doors, include ALL the doors, internal, external, main back etc.

• September 20, 2014 at 2:28 am

For south facing house is it right to provide main door at middle of house/ plot?, is it must to provide a door on north side stright opposite to main door (or) shall be provide window north side stright to main door ?
Hi R Srinivasan,
It is preferable to place the door in the south-east half of the house/plot to allow more of the morning sunlight into the house. You can have a window or door opposite to the main door.

• November 5, 2014 at 4:58 am

Sir,
sometime back I read in some book that different number of doors have different benefits,can you please tell the benefits of having 7 and 8 doors.
thanking you
Indra
Hi Indhraja,
Vastu recommends even number of doors and windows. In ancient times, the houses were timber structures and probably, even number of openings (with structural wooden lintels) may have been better for the stability of the structure. Also even number of windows were symmetric. But in today’s rcc column-beam buildings, you do not have to worry about the number of openings. So 7 or 8 will not matter.

• November 27, 2014 at 10:28 pm

dear sir,
My name is sowjanya my plot have five doors and one sliding door for balcony is it countable.four windows is there & oneglass ventilation window is there which is not open is it countable.please give me suggestions quickly as possible.
thanking u sir.
Hi Sowjanya,
If you are counting the number of doors, then the sliding door is also included. If you are counting windows, then include the ventilator also.

• December 14, 2014 at 10:36 pm

Hello!
I have flat. We count our doors. It’s 10. 3 -doors bedroom, 2-bathroom, 3-dressing room, 1-laundry room, 1-entrance. Also I have 1 door in bathroom for Shower. So, that’s okey? Or I need smthg to do? Because I am not buy doors, so I can change.
Thank you.
Hi Anna,
Please do not go into such tiny details. Since you want to go by Vastu rules, you just have to count the number of doors to the rooms which is 10 and is fine.

• January 19, 2015 at 3:41 am

Dear Sir,
My main entrance has 2 doors, one half mersh door opening to outside and the second is full wood door opening into the house. Do I need to count here as 2 doors or as the entry is only 1 so consider this as 1 door? please reply…
Regards, Kiran
Hi Kiran,
Consider it as one door since the entry is one.

• January 29, 2015 at 6:10 pm

There is a tree opposite to the main door of our shop approx 10 feet away.
Remedy for the same.
Hi Sapan,
A tree 10′ away from main door will not affect you that adversely. Just try to highlight your main door because it is a shop and should be noticeable.

• February 12, 2015 at 8:44 am

Hi,
Thanks first of all for superb site. My query is that I am constructing a bedroom which is the last room of our house. Now I want one door to open in the rear and one for entrance in that room. Can I have both these doors facing each other?
Secondly, can all three doors can be in alignment i.e. drawing room entrance, last room main door and last room rear door.
Hi Gaurav,
Actually aligning the three doors in a line so that the rear door can be seen from the front door and vice-versa is perfectly in accordance with Vastu Shastra. But in Feng Shui, this is discouraged because it is believed that the positive energy that rushes in through the main door will rush out through the back door (if they are the same line) without having a chance to permeate the rest of the house.
In Vastu, the house is likened to the human body – the food (nourishment) enters through the mouth and the waste exits through the rear which is in the same straight line, but along the way the food gets digested and absorbed by the rest of the body. Similarly the positive energy that enters the house through the main door does not in reality rush in and rush out of the rear door as there are so many door and window openings along the way which coax the fresh air to infiltrate the whole house. During this process, the stale warmer indoor air is slowly pushed out of the house and it makes sense to have the rear door in line with the main door.

I want to buy 3 bedroom apartment and it has 8 room doors and 3 bathroom doors my question is do I have to count bathroom doors or not?
Hi Kumar,
When you count the number of doors, consider all the doors including bathroom doors.

• February 22, 2015 at 10:22 pm

While counting door nos should we count compound gate or not please advise me.
Hi Pushpa,
Only count the doors of the house, not the gates.

• March 20, 2015 at 12:18 pm

Hi,
When I bought a 2bhk flat builder has provided 8doors to the apartment, pooja room didn’t had any door. Later while I did my interiors I added a door to the pooja room. It resulted to 9doors. Since then I feel things are not well, when I took friend’s advise he said even the corridor gate can also be considered. I am bit confused.Please help how can I resolve my problems.
Hi Sujith,
You cannot blame the number of doors for your problems because the number of openings were there when you bought the flat. It is just that you added a door to the pooja opening. That cannot make a difference.

• April 17, 2015 at 8:58 am

sir, now a days, entrance doors are attached with windows on both sides.in this case, how shell we count the number of doors & windows.will it be as 1)only one door or 2) one door + one window or 3)one door + two windows. please clarify since i purchased a duplex house and renovating according to vastu.I am getting lot of confusion in counting doors & windows.i will be thankful.
Hi Krishna,
If I were you, I would go by option 3- one door and two windows.

• June 12, 2015 at 1:18 am

Sir, We r constructing 3 bedroom house shall we go for 10 doors or not? I listen somebody told 10 doors not good. is it correct or not?
Hi Satya,
According to vastu, odd number of doors is preferable,. It had something to do with the wooden construction methods of old times and need not be followed today.

• June 16, 2015 at 7:21 am

Sir,

Can I count doors of bathroom in total vastu doors ?
or should I count it seperately?
While counting doors all including bathroom doors must be included.

• June 26, 2015 at 12:38 am

Hi,

I have a south facing plot.Road in front of the plot.A well is present in west side. I have below queries.

1. Is it okay to build main entrance in south side.
2. Can We build windows and balcony doors in south direction.
3. Is the presence of Well in west side is okay. As as per vastu water source should be at East or north east side.
Thank you.
Hi Goutam,
In order to have a plot and house exactly according to vastu principles, all the sites will have to be North facing. But this is not possible. So one cannot say that a south facing plot is not good or that a water source should only be in the NE.

• July 2, 2015 at 8:17 am

I am having 3 main doors 1 is in east(main door) one is in south one in north and three internal doors ( 2 for bed room and 1 for internal bathroom) which were without kuddapa may I count the internal doors how many doors to my home now
Hi Raju,
You should count all the doors, internal as well as main doors.

• July 4, 2015 at 7:38 pm

Hi Sir,
Should we count glass windows (no grill and cannot open) in the front elevation of the house..? Middle of the wall gap filled with glass. I can not open the glas, its completely fixed. Should I count that also for vasthu..?
Hi Rayudu,
Every opening is to be counted- fixed or openable.

• July 6, 2015 at 12:33 am

Whether I can only have door frames without the doors to count for the no. Of doors ?
whether grill door or gate attached backside door can be counted ?
Hi Phaniraj,
Number of doors in vastu relates to the number of door openings. So whether there is a door or not, the opening is included. Similarly if the grill door is attached to the back door, then it cannot be considered separately.

• August 6, 2015 at 12:56 am

I am planning to build a house whych is east facing, considering the sitouts i am planning to construct at south side and eastside, i need to have door at south side, considering future plans i also need to have a exit door on north side..
Can a house( 30×70′) have 1 main door and 2 exit door on north and south side. Is this a problem? Pl help

Hi Nav,
In effect you have three doors to the outside. From a vastu point of view, since these doors include doors in the East and the North it is good.

• October 2, 2015 at 6:27 am

Dear Sir,
I am planning to take an apartment for rent. It is having 5 doors with frames +2 both room doors without frame (total 7). Is it OK to take the apartment for rent or not?. if one more door frame added to kitchen, is it considered as another door?. Could you please suggest?
Hi Thirupathi,
Why are you so worried about the number of doors? If the plan and the ‘feel’ of the place is good go ahead and take it.

• October 10, 2015 at 1:46 am

Dear sir,
my house is extended in north west direction and forms a triangle there. I am constructing first floor. now i have omitted that face and making it in rectangular. I want to know what remedy can be used to avoid the bad effects if any.
Please also tell that what should be the best room for newly married couple. If a bedroom in extended north west is made can it be used for them?
Hi Ashutosh,
You have lived in this house for long I assume and there were no problems. So why worry about it now. It is a good thing that you are building a rectangular house on the first flooe. A bedroom in the NW or SW is ideal for a couple – if the couple is the owner of the house then use the Sw bedroom otherwise the NW is perfectly fine.

• October 15, 2015 at 1:05 pm

Hi, we are buying a east facing home with maint door in SE facing east but the rest of the east wall is full of long and wide windows so my understanding is since the door is opaque it lets sunlight in only when we open it but windows can constantly let the sun light in.so the positive energy is more with more wide windows in NE rather than door. Is my thinking correct? When I see some vastu websites they say SE door brings in illness. Please kindly explain me if it is really unsafe to have a Door in SE?
Hi Deepthi,
Your understanding is spot on. Ignore the vastu websites. Nothing disastrous will happen just because your house is not a hundred percent according to vastu. You have ample light coming in through the windows in the NE and E and that is all that is needed in a house.

• October 20, 2015 at 6:19 am

Hi,
I have recently made some changes to my 2Bhk flat for d purpose of ventilation into d kids bedroom v have demolished d wall one side and replaced with tough end glass frame and a door in between.should we count this door as per vaastu in dt case d count is 9.can u suggest an alternative
Hi Pratibha,
Why worry about number of doors when your changes have resulted in better ventilation. That is more important in Vastu.

• November 1, 2015 at 9:47 pm

2.should we count it as two or one window
3.whether the entire thing will be counted as a main door design or windows
kindly guide us
regards
sreenivaas
Hi Sreenivas,
It is okay to have a window attached to the main door as you can look out and see who is standing at the main door. Since the window can be kept open while the door is kept closed, it should be counted separately.

Hi Sathish,
Why would you want to count your cupboard doors? In case of a sliding door consider it as one, because there is only one opening even if there are two shutters.

I am getting bad dreams too..
Hi Shobha,
It is not bad to have three doors in a line. But make sure your bed is not in the line of the door to your bedroom. And if you feel uncomfortable about the “three doors in a line”, always close your bedroom door while you sleep.

• December 15, 2015 at 9:21 pm

First I appreciate u for a wonderful website
My question is regarding my friends home
They have buied a flat which is having even number of doors but they don’t have a door for pooja room they are deciding to go for a Door for pooja room but by this it will make odd numbers of door
but according to vastu there should be even number of doors if they go with odd number of doors can they go for it
I have seen the same question asked by some body in question sessions in this website
But again I wanna ask you that should they provide door or not
Because they believe that if they provide it will be against vastu which vl not be good for them
If you believe in vastu so much that you have a superstitious fear of it, then go for even number of doors by having 2 doors instead of one in the pooja room. That should solve your apprehensions. Thanks for taking time to leave an appreciative comment.

• December 17, 2015 at 4:12 am

Hello Sir,
I have two questions. My flat is in 3rd floor. There is one more floor above this.
My kitchen is at north-west corner of flat. Kitchen slab(black in color) is north to south and stove is placed towards south-east side of kitchen. While cooking person is facing towards east.Fridge is placed south-west corner, water-sink and washing machine is at north-west corner.
Q1) My question is related to entrance on my kitchen. It is towards south wall of kitchen. In other words a person has to look towards south when he/she coming out from kitchen. Is this a vastu dosh ?? If yes then what is the remedy ??
Q2) If location of kitchen within flat is vastu dosh then what is remedy. Kitchen has no door. It is open.
Whatever you have described about your kitchen seems to be okay according to vastu. But why do you want to look at the little things? Do you realise that there is not much you can change in flats? So if you keep fussing about tiny details you can never be satisfied.

• January 1, 2016 at 11:40 pm

• January 5, 2016 at 12:31 am

Hi sir, I have 1 attached bathroom and it has 1 ventilator. please let me know that whether the ventilator is to be included along with windows count?
The ventilator is also an opening and should be included if you are counting windows. But the number of openings has no relevance in today’s rcc structures. It does not matter how many windows there are.

• January 5, 2016 at 10:43 pm

Hello, I am buying a flat which is east facing main door but it is straight to another door on the kitchen balcony when you open the flat from the entrance, is it correct ? and the front door is partially facing the door of the opposite flat as well. Kindly suggest me on this two aspects.
There is nothing wrong in having the kitchen balcony door in line with the main door. Also, you cannot expect in an apartment, that your main door will not face another apartments door. So there is no need to worry.

• January 26, 2016 at 10:23 pm

Dear Sir,
We have 5 door in the flat,entrance is east facing. We dont have door for the kitchen. We are spending more money for illness. Kindly advice, can we put the door for kitchen to make it odd no.
Sripriya
Hi Sripriya,
In vastu number of doors equals number of door openings. So it does not matter if you have a door shutter or not. Your negative mindset need to change. This could be done by doing a pooja/prayer in your house and by decluttering- get rid of all the stuff that you do not need.

• January 30, 2016 at 9:14 am

we are constructing a independent house. total number of doors inside the house is 7 and out side the house we have one bathroom under the stare case . whether that bath room door will be counted or not for total doors.

Hi, I booked a newly constructed flat, I would like to seek your advice on Vastu regarding Doors.
1 main door, 2 bed rooms, 2 bath rooms, 1 wash area, 1 kitchen, 1 balcony french slider door.
So, There are 8 doors including French slider door to Balcony. I wanted to know if we can also consider French glass slider door under Door number vastu or only normal wooden doors are considered for calculations.
Thanks, Sai
Hi Sai,
In Vastu Shastra, all door openings are considered and there is no discrimination between wooden or glass.

Hi,
I am planning to shift my house. I stay in a rented house and shifting again to another rented house.the problem is that the entrance door to the house is south facing. I.e we enter the house from south to north.require your advise for this whether it is ok or no. All other features are good.
Hi Kiran,
I am sure you have gone through the internet and have a doubt in your mind because it is a south facing house and such houses are not considered auspicious in vastu. But scientifically it does not make sense and according to me any direction is fine. But since you have a doubt, it is better for you to go by your instinct about the house as a whole. Because if any small hurdle comes up, you will end up blaming the south entrance for it.

• April 18, 2016 at 7:30 am

I have 4 door in my house is want to provide a frameless door in kitchen. If I provide the framelse’s door , the total number of doors is 5. Somebody say that frameless door is not in counted. Is it right? Pls reply
Hi Ilyaz,
When you count number of doors, it is actually door openings that you are counting. So it does not matter whether there is a frame, a door shutter or neither of them.

Dear sir, Your website is very useful and I am always reading Q&A regularly. I have recently bought one house having total internal doors 5 (entrance 1, bed room 2 & bath rooms 2). I have one pooja stand with closing door. I would like to know whether I should take the pooja door while counting or not. Kindly advise me whether the total internal five doors are ok or all doors should be even number and if so please let me know the solutions.
Hi Kamlesh,
There is no need to count the number of doors. It is not relevant in today’s constructions.
