Vastu tips for the living room

  1. Living Room Furniture

When it’s comes to choosing furniture for your living room, it is advisable to select square or rectangular pieces. Avoid odd shapes like a pentagon or a triangle.

A sofa unit which is made of wood works well. It is suggested to avoid modern day modular furniture which is not made of natural material like wood. This is for the simple reason that all machine-made stuff has very low energy vibrations. On the other hand, all natural materials emit high positive energy vibrations.

Choose furniture which is comfortable to sit rather than only going for aesthetically designed pieces which are good to look at but not comfortable.

Recliners are a great option for living rooms as they encourage relaxation. Always make sure that every piece of furniture in your living or drawing room is well maintained and does not make creaking sounds.
