Vastu for Balcony | Veranda (Verandah) | Portico | Lanai | SubhaVaastu.com:

This link has information about Vastu for Balcony and Vastu for Portico

What is Balcony

Vastu for BalconyBalcony means A level of platform enclosed by the wall or balustrade on the outside building, it is accessible from top or upper floor door or window, generally these balconies are open, if its closed with any shed or sheets or covered with roof etc then it is called Lanai.

In other words, balcony means a protruded portion from the building which is accessible from the door and generally, it has the railing. It can be constructed in any direction, the floor level of the balcony counts here.

In other words, there is an option to walk on this Balconies in general, but o the same way we may not walk on Portico. This would be the common difference of Balcony and Portico.

What is Portico

Vastu for PorticoA Portico is nothing but Porch, which generally present at the entrance of the house, in other words, it is an extended part of the same roof as a colonnade, the roof structure has a walkway and it has supported by columns or otherwise enclosed by the walls. Some residents also planned to construct a separate portico which is not house slab continuation, it may be structured with different material like wood, steel, plastic sheets, etc.

Another definition of Portico is spaced columns which are regularly series wise supported the entablature and which is only one side of the roof.

In some areas it is called as cornice or frieze, a continuous horizontal lintel on a building which is supported by columns or a wall comprising the architrave, another statement is an extending floor out of the plinth area which is accessible from the first floor.

In general, we may not walk on portico or Porch, but we may walk on the balcony, this is the difference of both Portico and Balcony.

Difference Between Portico and Balcony

Portico is different and the Balcony is different. Portico is nothing but protruded portion of a property in a certain area. The balcony is nothing but an extension of the slab whether it may be the slanting or same floor level.

What is Patio

Vastu for PatioGenerally Patio means a paved area adjoined with the main home for any of recreation purpose or dining purpose. These patios are created with bricks, cobbles or tiles, in some areas it is created with concrete or stone slabs.

Some residences have outdoor patios or patio at the terrace. Some residents arranged canopy to this patio section. In some areas, the patio may be planned with only wooden.

But these may not be called a patio, for residents easy calling they may put the name as Patio. Most of the cases the patio is made with concrete stone slabs or with bricks. If the home is West facing or South facing then residents should not plan the patio at Northeast corner.

Except for Northeast corner they may plan it at Northwest after leaving some space at West and North, more near to the home and distance towards North boundary.

For South facing homes, residents may plan this Patio at Southeast, it needs some open space towards South and more open space towards East, i.e., this patio should be near to the Home and has a distance to the East boundary wall.

For any direction homes the Patio should not come at the Northeast corner if it was built with concrete stone slabs. In USA most of the suburb areas have this patio and very commonly used for most of the homes in cities too. In UK also some homes have Patio, in Australia rich homes maintaining patios.

Some residents calling Patio as (Pa-shi-o) but actual pronounciation is (Pa-tee-ow)

Now observe the "balcony" which is a very common word used in India. One may observe the Balcony in the below images, which are very common in India.

Generally, in India majority people used to say it as Balcony, the original meaning may be different but the common usage of the word which is used in a nation, that we are discussing here.

If a balcony is constructed in the South direction then it is essential in North direction too.

If a balcony is constructed in the West direction then it is essential to construct at East direction too.

If a home has open space towards North and East directions then please plan for one balcony in these two directions which should not be truncated at Northeast. Both East and North directions and the corner Northeast should be continued with the balcony.

Skyscrapers, apartments are mushrooming in this jet speed age. Thousands and lacks of families live in the apartments; it needs to the residents to have open spaces in balconies in the East and North. In apartments, we cannot find the slanting balconies.

For east and north facing homes the residents planning to construct balconies at their whim and pleasure by cutting them and extending them. But cutting in a haphazard manner results in defective vastu which brings bad luck. Continue the balcony with the home itself. Don't cut from the main home.

What is Lanai

Lanai means, a portico or veranda, generally, Lanai means a covered porch. Normally, Lanai has fully furnished,

Balcony Vastu Shastra Tips

To be frank balconies should not have truncated or cut at Northeast corners.

North balcony should be wider than the South balcony.

East balcony should be wider than the West balcony.

Northeast balcony should be wider than the Southwest balcony.

SouthEast balcony should be equal with the Northwest balcony.

Slanting East balcony gives overall prosperity.

Slanting North balcony provides more wealth.

South balcony should not be slanting down. It dries out the finances and health. Some residents asking about, "is south facing balcony good or bad". For them here we provided the answer.

West balcony should not be slanting down, it may cause jobless, healthless, worry full, improving enemies power, lack of sustainability and good living problems, etc.

If a home has West slanting balcony and on the same way it has east slanting balcony towards East will compensate the West slanting balcony problems, but West balcony should be shorter than the East balcony otherwise the problems remains same.

If a house has slanting South balcony and on the same way it has slanting North balcony then it will compensate the South slanting balcony, please note that the South slanting balcony should be shorter than the north balcony, otherwise residents should face same problems which South slanting balcony addressed.

Generally, Southwest slanting balcony is not advisable. If it is inevitable, then residents should plan huge slanting Northeast slanting balcony.

The Northeast balcony should not cut or depressed at any cost.

Both North and East balcony is excellent.

Both South and West balcony without East and North balcony to the property may curse the residents.

Balcony slanting towards East brings good name and fame

Balcony slanting towards North brings prosperity, good health.

Nowadays the balconies are done with plastic sheets, this is not a problem.

The most standard and good look portico attracts and brings positive powers.

Northeast portico brings good luck.

Northwest portico creates many new headaches to the inhabitants. Point is that whether it is slanting down or up, based on that also results will be contrasting.

Southeast portico creates few challenges to the residents. Point is that whether is it slanting down or upwards, based on that also results will be divergent.

The following are the house models with portico, the light green colour is house and the thick color is portico, red mark "X"represents wrong, and the green mark represents correct.

This may belong to this page or not, but we see many porticoes damaged in most of the homes because of the lack of maintenance and concentration. Most of the porticos are damaged due to cloudburst suddenly.

So better to observe the water outlet hole is good to receive the water or not, kindly observe is there anything was obstructed for this water outlet, if so clean and clear everything on war foot basis, otherwise in future residents has to pay hugely.

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 a great pleasure 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

Hello Sir, My name is Bharathi. Me and my husband have been reading your articles closely. We really appreciate the effort put by you to share your knowledge about vastu and it’s effects - Bharathi - 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

Vastu Tip of the Day

Constructing homes near (NEXT) to the Highway roads are not auspicious. If it is inevitable then choose the plot which is next to either South or West of Highway roads. In such case highway would become either North or East direction. For more daily vastu tips : Daily Vastu Tips
