If there is empty vessels that should be mandatory to keep in the home and particularly looking to keep at the storage area, then keep them at North or East or even at Northeast in the store room. Please note that there should be heavyweights at Southwest then only this principle works. Otherwise, keep the empty vessels at Northwest.
Can We keep Grains and Provisions in the Storeroom?
Grains and provisions are stored in the house for their ready availability and use in an emergency. Southwest (Southwest vastu) is the best direction for storing grains. Storage long run items to keep at SW storeroom is a good idea. Regular usage is not highly recommended.
There will never be any shortage of grains or provisions, if stored in the Southwest, here the house must have the Northeast-north door or Northeast-east door.
For storing grains, a mezzanine floor can be constructed in South or West or Southwest of the storeroom. Cupboards or racks should be placed in some directions like West, South or Southwest.
Maximum try to keep heavyweights at Southwest areas.
Sacks containing annual provisions should be stored in the Southwest direction while sacks containing provisions of daily use should be stored in the Northwest.
If possible leave some space towards North and East (East Facing house) directions in the storeroom.
Try to keep a pitcher or vessel filled with drinking water at Northeast direction (This is not mandatory rule).
Water vessels should always be with water, it should not be empty. Store the flammable materials like kerosene, cooking gas cylinder, and other fuel used for cooking purposes in the southeast (Southeast vastu).
Oil, butter, and ghee should be stored in between the South and Southeast. Sunlight and solar heat will keep them pure. Store milk and curd in between the North (North vastu) and northeast (Northeast vastu). (This matter is from www.subhavaastu.com) The door should preferably be in the North or East direction.
Please note that for Southeast direction kitchens, there should be no door in the Southwest direction.
Where should We Arrange the Windows to the Storeroom?
Arranging Ventilator in the store room is a good idea then arranging window. The ventilator can be fixed to the West or South walls. A small ventilator is recommended. Fix one exhaust fan is also suggested. I planning for any window to the external storeroom then arrange the window in the North, East directions. A ventilator in the lumber-room is required, otherwise, bad smells may form and it may harm when someone enters the room so at least arrange one ventilator or a small window in the East or North direction. If residents looking to arrange windows only in South or West directions then small windows are highly recommended.
Which Color is Suitable for Storeroom?
Use dark grey or blue color as wall paint. Grey color represents the earth element. Avoid white and yellow colors. Lumber is the place full of tamas energy. Avoid storing any watery element in this area. There should not be any dampness or cracks in the walls. The flooring should be even throughout. White, blue or yellow are the avoidable colors of the tiles and the walls. Please note that using color is not important in the storeroom. Finding good location for the storeroom is important in our home or commercial places.
Remove all the cobwebs from the granary. Avoid taking out any provisions from the granary. Avoid taking out any (This matter is from www.subhavaastu.com) provisions from the granary in the twilight period.
Sleeping in the threshed granary at night is never recommended. One may not experience and enjoy sound sleep here. Different thoughts will start hunting your mind.
Storage Room for Waste Materials :
Keep on your eye on waste material in the house. The waste materials or articles may create tamas and make the inhabitants inactive and lethargic.
Whenever necessary, a lumber room (if you have any kind of waste wood storage) should be built in the Southwest corner of the open space around the main building, it is also called as "Upagruha".
It may have support of the south and West walls (visit to know more about west homes through this West facing house vastu page) of the Paisacha or Pisacha area or zone.
If space in the Paishacha zone is not feasible, lumber room should be placed in the southwest zone of the building.
The space for storage of waste should have a minimum floor area. It should remain as heavy as possible. It is the ideal place for storing heavy material.
The door of the lumber room should be in the North or East direction.
It should be made of one shutter or door. The lumber room door can be of lesser height than other doors of the building.
Uneven flooring is inauspicious. The Southwest room or store room floor height should always be height or elevated from all other floor levels in the entire compound wall. Any construction defect should be immediately repaired, late action may damage the further structure.
Lumber-room is meant for storing dead articles. It is not a place for living (read step by step guidance on living room vastu) from this link.), sleeping, or such as other activities.
Lumber rooms in the Southwest accumulate negative energies of solar rays. People occupying this place during the daytime become quarrelsome, demonic, and troublesome in the long run.
Ultimately, benefits are lesser than the problems created. If sick persons are kept in this room death draws nearer.
This area is full of tamas energy of Rahu, the Sarpa. Avoid visiting the lumber room in the afternoon, evening or night. (This matter is from www.subhavaastu.com) Heavy breathing in the lumber-room may cause heaviness in the chest and uncomfortable feelings.
Don’t keep your important documents, cash or jewelry in this room. No photographs or idols of gods are recommended here. Don’t burn any incense sticks here. This is not the place for doing any auspicious work.
Gossiping, laughing or talking loudly while standing in this room should be avoided. Such acts will curtail your happiness in life. There should not be any basement in this SW store room portion. Having a basement at the SW storeroom may damage the entire infrastructure. (Read Basement vastu rules page.)
Store Room at Southwest Quadrant
In this image the store room arranged in the Southwest quadrant, this is auspicious direction. This entrusts the life security, strengthening financial position, improving health, fame and domination are the general features.
Entire Southwest Store Room is Good Option?
In this image the storeroom occupied entire Southwest portion, due to this Northwest and southeast walks will be heavy in this home, though having storage area at SW area may not bestow with auspicious outcome, this is the case some residents never get good results through storeroom located at Southwest quadrants. Everything should have some limitations. Respect the principles, they bless the residents.
Here the image is changing into different positions for your understanding
(What are all (looking to know about misunderstandings in between family members then check this link).
In every house or plot (Check this ideal locations of plot vastu) there must be 4 parts one is 1. Ishan (Northeast), 2. Southeast (Agneya), 3. Southwest (Nairuthi), 4. Northwest (Vayavya) blocks or portions, at Southwest (Nairuthi) corner or block or portion we have to plan for store room.
In the above images you have seen that the entire Southwest (Nairuthi) part has been provided for store room, you can also do like this or observe this image, here one black colored mark is covering Southwest, South (South vastu) and west areas, you can plan to construct or keep the store room in that area. Store room means is contains several old or new materials, waste or unused materials so it's better to have one good idea with one Vastu Pandit
Northeast Direction Store Room
One of the dangerous step in the name of Vastu shastra in the house is constructing the store room towards Northeast direction or corner of the house, it creates lots of problems.
It is strongly recommends that to remove the store room immediately without consulting expert Vastu Consultant.
Store room towards Southeast is not recommended, if you don't have any other place or space in the house, then there is no other way expect this Southeast corner, then its OK. But strong recommendation is store room towards Southwest is excellent.
Store room towards Northwest is not recommended, if you don't have any other place or space in the home, then there is no other way expect this Northwest corner, then its ok. But the strong recommendation is the store room should always be towards Southwest and it is the best idea. If you have any storeroom towards Northwest corner, then open one door towards Northeast-east. If you approached one good Vaastu consultant if he visited the property he may recommend you the best thought, those ideas may turn your life, who knows it.
Observe the store room towards Southwest corner, we have shown some numbers here. "1" is superior quality for the store room in the compound premises. Like wise 4 is least preference placement for the store room.
Now Observe the opposite qualities :
Here the Storeroom is towards Northeast corner and the red shade is shown. Northeast is the full red and while it moving towards Southeast and Northwest the shade is light in red color, which means Northeast Storeroom is too dangerous.
But we never recommend residents for the Northwest or North and Southeast or East storerooms. Please don't forget the same.
Your suggestions are highly appreciated here.
Keeping an eye on your entire property structural system and thereafter decide whether storeroom is needed for your requirements or not, you may go for mezzanine instead of storeroom.
If storeroom is compulsory, then you may approach one vastu expert and show your property and get his recommendation and thereafter only you may start the work, without having any experts advise don't do any practicals, it may harm you.
If you have basements, then it is better to stop the store room work and wait for one good suggestion from experts.
For East Facing House, Planning To Construct Storeroom At Southwest, Which Wall Is Good To Touch Either South Or West Wall?
Constructing external storeroom at Southwest of a house is an excellent idea. No need to touch south and west walls. If touching any wall is epoch-making then you can touch the West wall as your house is east facing. (In case if the storeroom touches the South wall rather than the West wall, it is not inauspicious.)
For North Facing House, Thinking To Build Storeroom At Southwest Location, Which Wall Is Good To Touch Either West or South Wall?
House external and within boundary premises constructing Southwest is auspicious thought. Independent storeroom is a good idea. It should not touch any walls at Southwest. If touching any one wall is most significant for the residents then touching the South wall is a good idea. (Please note that if the storeroom touches the west wall then it won't be called as bad structure.)

We are tech professionals and working in USA. After a year long search we brought the house. After buying the house I started looking for consultant who can help me evaluating the house. I came across Subhavaastu website which has lot of information. I contacted Mr.Suresh and requested him to help with our house vastu. It has been an incredible delight working with him.. He is very detailed oriented person and never compromises with his work. I am typically not interested to deliver the reviews. But after working with Mr. Suresh I decided to share my experience. Mr. Suresh has great expertise in providing vastu consultation to USA property. He is always available through email and phone l to answer questions. I am writing this review hoping it will help other people like me who lives in abroad. Please take advise before buying the house. I highly recommend Mr. Suresh as he has great experience with structure of USA properties and also he provides genuine consultation. I really appreciate Mr. Suresh's help in evaluating our house - Padma - Boston - USA
"I contacted Sureshji to consult on our current home. He was spot on in identifying vastu dosha in regards to the problems we were having. He suggested remedies but we are still looking for a new house. Since then I have been in touch with him for finding a right home for us. He is very sincere and truly wishes better lives for everyone. He doesn’t compromise with quality and is always responsive to queries. He recommends solutions as per location as vaastu rules differ for each country. He is greatly contributing to the society with his knowledge of Vaastu Shastra and dedication towards his work. Keep up the good work Sureshji and wish you success and happiness!" - Megha - Virginia - USA
I have consulted Suresh Garu during December 2014 during the process of buying a house in Texas, USA. I have occupied the house for one year now, and feel like dropping a review regarding my experience during the entire process. I am very much satisfied with the kind of service I received from him. He is very knowledgeable and I was often stunned by his detailed analysis during the course of my interaction with him. He was very much accessible over phone (perhaps more than 10 times for one house plan!) and the price is very much reasonable especially compared with the cost of the house. I noticed his burning desire to help me in making informed decisions on certain things. I have seen some people pretending to know this subject and misguiding those who come for help by saying only what we want to hear. SubhaVaastu is definitely not that one. Finally, I am strong believer of leaving certain things to experts in those subjects. I have been in US for more than 13 years and have seen people doing their own corrections (by reading website articles) trying to save few dollars. Please don’t do that. You would end up in causing more damage. I highly recommend you to engage SubhaVaastu in your next project - Satish - Dallas - TX - USA
