Vastu for Staircase | Selecting a Good Place For Staircase As Per Vastu Shastra | SubhaVaastu.com:

Vastu shastra for Stair Case | Steps Vastu:

There may be many types of staircases, out of them we mentioned some of them below:

Linear Staircase, which starts from one direction and reached to the opposite direction. For example, 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. There may not be more space for the homes, in such case, the staircase should be come only linear. Otherwise, resident has to leave the property and has to buy another one. Is it possible?. Many Vastu Consultants opinion is also the same. Some Vastu Pandits opinion is that linear staircase may not be correct. If so, how the resident built the staircase for his home. Whatever the Vastu says, but resident should need the staircase to go to the upstairs.

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 good idea.

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.

Spiral staircase.

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.

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

The steps (Staircase, spiral, helical, round shaped, wooden, steel, Iron staircases) can be built anywhere except in the Northeast of the East direction and the Northeast of the North direction and Northeast corner too.

Staircase should not be constructed in the Southwest room of the home.

While constructing the staircase at the East facing house, they should not touch the house Eastern wall or the Eastern compound wall. The appropriate gap should be maintained in between both the home and the compound wall. How to? its simple, a small pillar came at the stairs landing area. It means stairs start at one point of the home Southeast area and thereafter landed on the pillar area and there it takes turn and reaches the top terrace. The entire stairs will be loaded only on the pillar which is nearly Southeast of the outside of the home. 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.

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

While constructing the steps in the South facing house, a simple technique is the starting of the stairs generally starts from East to the West direction for this South facing home and thereafter it takes towards North

While planning the steps in the Western side, they can touch the house Western Wall or the Western compound. While starting to climb the steps, it is best to climb from East to West first and a turn can be taken to any side later. (The climbing of the steps should not be from West to East). While starting to climb the steps it can also be started from North to South first, and a turn can be taken to any side later. (The climbing of the steps should not be from South to North). If steps/staircase are being built outside, then they can be built in the South-East towards East and the second best option is North-West towards North, Western Southwest in West and Southern Southwest in South.

Steps/staircase may be called with different names in different places as Rung, shed, stair case, steps etc. How to arrange steps and banister and where to place the staircase at our house or at our factory, most of the residents may do mistakes by placing the staircase at wrong places and that may causes/leads to severe problems, here are some guidelines for placing staircase/steps and constructing their structure. Depending on the availability of vacant place or site inside or outside around our house they can be arranged against entrance or outside. For example: If your home is West facing and entrance is from Northwest-west then the staircase should not be exactly opposite of this main entrance door. When coming to the South facing homes and a home is having main entrance door from Southeast-south then staircase should not be exactly opposite to the entrance door. Why it is so like this way: its simple, in both cases the staircase came towards Northeast, that one should not plan to place staircase towards Northeast. This rule may not be applies to the Northeast-North and Northeast-east entrance door homes, as the staircase may come towards Northwest and Southeast. Vastu for Staircase is not a easier to decide, it may has some hurdles to select the right place in the home, when coming to the exact planning of a home with vastu science, one should not do mistakes in selecting the place of staircase in their dream home.

Vastu for StaircaseObserve this house image there is one portico shown with one house and staircase, this portico built at Northeast corner of the house and the steps planned at Southeast corner of the house, here one green arrow showing the portico and another green arrow showing the staircase, it shows that the line of the staircase not crossed the portico line, this is the point while plannig staircase at Southeast for East facing homes. The right procedure is portico line has to cross the staircase level towards East direction so that Northeast (Eshan) will extended than the Southeast (Agneya), if the portico is lesser than stair case line it means that the stair case extended towards Southeast corner, it means Southeast extension, it may no be a 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 stair case. Before constructing the house, its 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 of the home i.e., steps, kitchen, bedroom etc. For every area of our home has its own capability to show its power in giving the results, for some of important things like staircase, bedroom, kitchen etc it should not be finalized by having a tiny knowledge of vastu shastra. It may hurt in future. For more information on this staircase please visit this Vaastu Shastra for Staircase link, it has more information on Staircase.

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
