Different Results With Solid Rock Staircase And Light Weight Metal Staircase

The quest of mankind is unending. The earliest man on the earth wore no clothes and ate raw meat and other things available handy.

The discovery of fire and agriculture is the result of quest of man for a better life.

In modern terminology, it may be called, “research”.

In the earlier days treatments for ailments might not have been available.

Research – the modern term for the word quest – led to discovery of various medicinal systems and medicines so that it is helpful to humanity.

Same is the case in every walk of life including Vastu Shastra.

Vastu Shastra decrees that the staircase on Northeast side is harmful to the residents.

What exactly it means is heavy construction and heavy materials in the Northeast side stationed permanently on the Northeast when compared to other sides is unwelcome.

We have seen several places where this principle is defied. On the contrary, people were seen to be active and normal otherwise.

There were no signs of inauspicious situations. What was wrong then . . .

Our understanding of the principles was wrong. What is meant was heavy, permanent articles in the Northeast are unwelcome.

With the modern construction methods, staircases have become lighter and positioning of them in the Northeast is seen not causing bad situations.

As such the understanding of the principle was basically wrong. Not the principle itself.

Such refined understanding can be discerned only by a competent Vastu scholar endowed with modern construction materials and the like.

It is for this reason that we continuously emphasize upon a competent vastu scholar who does not merely parrot ancient statements without understanding the complete implications. 

Questions And Answers On Vastu Shastra for Stair Case (Steps Vastu):

1. Can we have a staircase at the Northeast corner?

Ans: Northeast is not a good place for the staircase, it may harm health, progress, prosperity, and fame too. Residents who have a staircase in Northeast, most of them looking for remedies and dosh nivaran. (Please note that some rules were not applied to USA, UK, Australia properties). Anyway, Northeast staircase is the detrimental placement out of all the other directions in the property.

2. Can we plan internal staircase at Southwest direction, is this good to have a staircase at Southwest?

Ans: Internal southwest corner is not a proper place for the staircase.

3. Can we plan external staircase at Southwest direction, is this good to have an external staircase at Southwest?

Ans: External southwest corner is accepted, take proper guidance from experts for this external SW staircase.

4. Can we plan staircase at Northwest?

Ans: Northwest is the best suitable location for the staircase. Northwest direction is perfectly fit for external and internal staircases. Please note that Northern-northwest is the acceptable location for the staircase. We are not stating that Northwest-west is acceptable.

5. Can we plan staircase at Southeast corner?

Ans: Southeast corner is the significant location for the staircase. Those who are planning for an external staircase, then they may plan towards Southeast-east. With this Southeast-east extension to the house, the best remedy is having one balcony at Northeast that should be extended towards Northeast-east than this Southeast-east staircase border line.

6. Can we place a staircase in North direction?

Ans: Either internal and external, the north direction is not suitable for the staircase.

7. East direction is suitable for the staircase?

Ans: Both internal and external staircase was not fit in East direction.

8. Is west direction is good for the staircase?

Ans: Yes, west internal home location is acceptable to have a staircase. We provided some more information on Staircase for west facing house as per vastu

9. South direction is suitable for the staircase?

Ans: Home internal south direction is suitable for a staircase.

10. Can we place Staircase at Brahmasthan

Ans: In India, this Brahmasthan staircase is not suitable, but staircase in Brahmasthan is a common feature in USA, UK, Australia.

11. Is it important to count number of steps in staircase as per vastu?

Ans: In Pracheena vastu steps counting in a staircase has influential importance. Majority residents arranging staircase as per their convenience. We are not protesting for the steps count in the staircase, but this is not at all a serious matter in this modern living. When stairs constructed with solid rocks then we should evaluate many things. Today, residents don't like to construct with solid mountain rocks for the staircase. We are using only wood and most of them are hollow bricks and even staircase also become hollow now :)

12. Ours is East facing house. Staircase with pillar support is in the Southeast. For that SE pillar, northeast pillar touching the portico is required or not.

Normally, for the staircase, particularly in India, residents planning them at Southeast, for standard purpose, staircase built with cement gravel and it came with pillar support for the center platform. Is such case it seems to be Southeast extension. If there is a portico at Northeast, then no need to have any another pillar at Northeast to the portico. If there is any room or toilet under the staircase which is at Southeast then pillar is required for Northeast portico.

13. Is ladder is also giving same results when compare with solid staircase and considered to be a staircase in vastu shastra?

Ans: Before knowing the answer for the above question, first we need to get some clarification on this ladder and vastu influence on ladder positions.

This ladder is only made with a series of bars in between two upright lengths of metal, wood, and rope generally used for climbing up to the upstairs or terrace or something.

We observed some ladders like with wooden ladders, steel ladders and iron ladders with hollow in between each climbing line is not giving bad results when they are at prohibited places, in our observation majority of the ladders were silent in make over bad results.

We all known that some ladders are movable and some are non-movable. In our observation, with this non-movable ladders also not given bad results to the residents. Please make sure that, we are discussing only.

Different Names of Staircases

Steps/staircase may be called with different names in different places as Rung, shed staircase, steps, etc. How to arrange steps and banister and where to place the staircase at our house or at our factory (factory vastu), most of the residents do mistakes by placing the staircase at wrong places and that may lead to severe problems, here are some step by step guidelines for placing staircase/steps and constructing their structure.

There are many types of staircases in use, out of them we mentioned some of below:

1. Arched staircase

2. Straight and simple or Linear Staircase, which starts from one direction and reached to the opposite direction. For example, the staircase starts from East direction and ends at West direction, the tail of the staircase. This style of stairs will appear on the row homes in the streets.

3. L Shaped Stair (or sometimes called quarter turn stairs). L shaped staircase, which is starting from one direction and ends with another direction. For example, stairs start at East direction and landed at the center of the stairs and move towards North direction or South direction, many vastu pandits opinioned that this method may not be perfect, due to space constraint, residents following the method which is suitable as per their convenience.

4. Bifurcated stairs, these are very common in movies, in many movies we can observe such bifurcated stairs. Starts from one place and landed at one part and thereafter divided into two stairs and reaching the upper floor in two different directions. It looks rich feeling. (Someone called this as Split Staircase)

5. Circular Stairs

6. Spiral Stairs

7. Arched staircase

8. Helical stairs

9. U shaped staircase, which is starting from one direction and ends into the same direction at the landing area and taking U-turn at the center of the staircase. For example, stairs start from East direction and taking the turn either at South direction or West direction and again moving towards East direction. This system is very common in India. Many vastu shastra experts also opinioned that U shape staircase is a good idea.

10. Double U staircases, or square style staircase, which starts from one direction and end in the same or another direction, these type of stairs can be visible for the very old buildings or Maharaja palaces.

11. Dancing Staircases, which are lesser in number, but we can see them in some homes.

Curved Stairs

Ladder stairs

Floating Staircase

Storage Staircase

The steps (Staircase, spiral, helical, round-shaped, wooden, steel, Iron staircases) can be built anywhere except in the Northeast direction or at East direction or North direction.

The staircase should not be constructed in the Southwest room of the home.

While constructing the staircase at the eastern southeast part of an East facing house, stairs should not touch the Eastern compound wall. The appropriate gap should be maintained between both stairs and the compound wall.

Its simple to follow, stairs start from eastern southeast part and landed on one pillar which is exactly at Southeast-east not touching the main home (independent pillar), and stairs running towards the north direction and reach the upper floor. The entire stirs load will be bare on this individual pillar only.

If this staircase touches the home Eastern wall then balcony should be provided at Northeast corner, which it should cross the East line of the staircase. For this one may see the below image. It can be found in this below animated image.

While placing the steps in the North Facing House, they should not touch the house Northern wall or the Northern compound wall. The gap should be maintained between North compound wall and the staircase.

The appropriate gap should be maintained in between the main home North wall and stairs and North compound wall. If the stairs touch the home North wall then portico should be maintained which should increase the Northeast, one may observe all these techniques in next pages.

While constructing the steps in the South facing house, the simple technique is generally, stairs start from East to the West direction for this South facing home and thereafter it turn towards North and again turn towards east and reaching the upper floor at Southeast-south part, which is auspicious location for South homes.

While planning steps to the West facing home, they can touch the house western wall. While starting to climb the steps, it is best to climb from North (Read more information from this North facing house vastu link) to South and turn to East and again move towards North and finally landed at western Northwest portion which is auspicious location for the west facing homes.

If steps/staircase are being built outside, then the first choice should be eastern-South-East or the second best option is northern Northwest.

Arranging Staircase Exactly Opposite To The Main Entrance Door Is Good Or Bad:

For West and South facing homes, when entering to the home from the main entrance the exact opposite stairs should NOT be placed.

For East and North facing homes, when entering the home from the main entrance door, the staircase can be built exactly opposite to the door.

Depending on the availability of vacant place or outside of our house residents can choose a proper place to arrange staircase opposite to the entrance. For example: If a home is West facing and entrance is from Northwest-west then the staircase should not be exactly opposite of this main entrance gate.

When coming to the South facing homes and home is having main entrance door from Southeast-south then staircase should not be exactly opposite to the entrance gate.

Why: it's simple, in both above cases, the staircase came towards Northeast, please note that Northeast staircase is not recommended.

This rule may not apply to the Northeast-east and Northeast-north entrance gate homes, for these two homes the staircase exists either Northwest or at Southeast.

Vastu for Staircase is not an easy method to decide, it may have some hurdles to select the right place in the home when coming to the exact planning of a home with vastu perspective, one should not do mistakes in selecting the place of the staircase in their dream home.

Vastu for StaircaseThis is an animated image, it takes at least 5 seconds time to animate/movie. Eastern Southeast we can find one staircase. Indeed this is a good placement of the staircase. Due to the staircase, the house gets Southeast-east extension, to minimize its bad effect and a balanced method, just build the portico as shown in this image, this is good enough remedy for this mistake.

The right procedure is portico line has to cross the staircase level towards an East direction which was clearly shown with one green arrow. so that Northeast (Eshan) will extend than the Southeast (Agneya), if the portico is lesser than staircase line it means that the staircase extended towards Southeast corner, it means eastern Southeast extended, it may not be too dangerous but not recommended.

This image map is only for East facing homes and for every direction there must be some specifications for this staircase. Before constructing the house, it's better to take an appointment with one of the best vastu consultant and discuss on every point and has to take some precautions on every direction locations of the home i.e., kitchen, steps, bedroom, etc.

For every room of our home has its own capability to show its power in delivering the results, for some of the important things like a staircase, bedroom, kitchen, etc it should not be finalized with tiny knowledge of vastu shastra principles. This wrong thought may damage the future.

Vastu Testimonials Delivered By Respected Residents

Dear Suresh, I am pleased to inform you that like the way you provided consultation for my home and explained to me all the changes required inside and outside home. I really appreciate the diagrams that you prepared for my home with pictures and arrows showing the changes need to be done. Above all, you explained very well the reasons behind changes you recommended for my home with great clarity and sense of humor. No doubt in my mind, you are the best Vastu expert, I really appreciate your dedication by building and maintaining a very informative website that is helping thousands of people across the globe. Also, I sensed when I talk to you and when I was dealing with you, you follow honesty and integrity and you have a sincere desire to help others - Kotesware Rao - Dallas - USA

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
