Vaastu Shastra : Significance of Toilet Locations

Toilets, in residential and commercial spaces, should be designed as per vaastu guidelines, as they tend to become a major source of negative energy in the house.


Vaastu is a very wide term and encompasses various fields. Ranging from structural balancing to balancing the land energies, managing geopathic stresses, placement of objects and activities or usage of colours etc, Vaastu provides a meaning to our lives and plays the role of supporting our objectives. 

Toilets in residential and commercial spaces should be designed as per vaastu guidelines, as they tend to become a major source of negative energy in the house. While making vaastu corrections in a space, special attention should be given to the toilet. If balanced and treated as per the principles of Vaastu, all negative effects can be minimised. This article will help you understand what corrections are needed if the location of a toilet is not guided by vaastu principles.

As consultants, our aim is to help our clients get rid of the problems they are facing. It’s common practice, followed by many people, to simply get the toilet seat relocated to some other place, to align it as per Vaastu. This is itself a big task in terms of time and money. Moreover, it disturbs the layout and many times, may not be practical. But our approach is altogether scientific, where we provide the vaastu corrections for the toilet without any demolition. We treat and balance the toilet to reduce its impact and make our lives smoother.

Using the toilet seat is a disposal activity and hence discards everything. So, if it is placed in a direction which provides benefits to the occupants, it may flush away the positive energy of that direction. It may keep the occupants from enjoying the benefits that direction is bound to offer.

Let’s look at the scientific logic behind how it works. Whenever we visit a toilet, we visit with a mindset of getting rid of bodily waste. We go with the intent of disposing or flushing it away. Since we use the space or it belongs to us, so this intent shifts to the attributes of that direction too. Let me explain this with an example. If the toilet seat placement is in the west direction and whenever we flush it, the attributes of that direction are also getting flushed away. The west direction governs our finances, material gains, our businesses etc. So, unknowingly our subconscious mind, being synced with our space, is flushing away our gains and manifestations. The outcome will be that the inhabitants of that house will not be able to make any profit and gains in life and their work and important deals may get stuck at the last moment. 

What should be considered while making corrections to the toilet? There are many things that have to be considered: 

Once the site is surveyed, we check the direction and location of the toilet seat in the space. The toilet seat affects the attributes of the direction in which it falls in. If we feel the attributes of the direction are getting flushed away or disposed of, we can conclude that the toilet seat is transferring its activity to that direction. 

Colour of the seat 
The colour of the seat should also be considered as it may act as an anti element to that direction and may further worsen the problem that the toilet is causing. So, while treating the toilet, its colour should also be considered. 

Elemental Imbalance
Every object in this universe consists of the five elements – water, air, fire, earth and space, commonly known as Panchtatva. Even our body is made up of these five elements. Any one element, if disturbed, makes us unhealthy. In the same way if the balance of these elements gets affected in our spaces, it affects the occupants. A toilet in the wrong direction may affect the particular element of that direction and cause imbalances. We ensure that after treating the toilet, we restore the balance of that element with some advanced techniques.

Facing of the seat
The facing of the toilet seat holds no importance for us in common households and larger complexes. While making new constructions, we try to get the best directions.
