Cosmic energies or vibrations have a strong impact on how you lead your life and they can be present in the unlikeliest of places, for instance, the wardrobe in your bedroom or master bedroom.  Following wardrobe Vastu can help you keep all negativities at bay and bring prosperity into your household 

A bedroom is a private place where you relax and rejuvenate after a long day of work. The simplest of things — like a wardrobe in the bedroom that is not Vastu-compliant — can create problems in your everyday life and affect your health, career, wealth, marriage and other aspects. 

Let’s go through some of the tips on Vastu for wardrobe in bedroom or Vastu for wardrobe in the master bedroom so that you can design or correct it accordingly.

The right vastu for bedroom wardrobes

Wardrobe Facing Vastu (Direction)

The ideal direction for the wardrobe is the southwest (first choice) or the northwest (second choice) of the house as it ensures the constant flow of money in the household. However, a heavy wardrobe can be placed on the west or south wall. The bedroom doors should open to the north. Avoid all the other directions for the placement of the wardrobe as, according to Vastu, it can lead to a drastic loss of cash.

Wardrobe Placement As Per Vastu

When you place the wardrobe keeping in mind the ideal Vastu direction, always leave a gap of at least 3 inches between the wardrobe and the wall itself. The primary aim here is to ensure that the air is free-flowing and there are no obstructions in the circulation of positive energies in the surrounding area.

Make sure that the furniture in the bedroom is placed towards the northeast and the wardrobe doors don’t face the toilet wall as this may lead to more outflow of money and wealth. The wardrobe doors should always open towards the east and never towards the south. This is because the south can cause disruptions and frequent quarrels between family members.

Wardrobe Colours As Per Vastu 

Vastu Shastra for the wardrobe in the bedroom suggests that light colour shades be used both on the wardrobe as well as the walls of the bedroom. Why? Because light colours help spread more positivity and are soothing to the eye and mind. On the other hand, dark colour shades are a strict no-no as they absorb all the negativities from the environment and tend to stay around and cause distraction, which isn’t good at all.

The best Vastu colours for bedroom wardrobes are pastel shades like light yellow, white and cream (symbolise peace), beige and light grey. These colours open up the space and lead to a harmonious flow of the right energies. 

Vastu-Compliant Wardrobe Design

For the wardrobe to be in line with the Vastu principles, it should be made of iron and wood and not of marble or any other stone. It should be of a solid square or rectangular shape and should have a single-door system for the best results. Odd and unusual shapes of wardrobes are considered inauspicious.

Another thing to be kept in mind is that the wardrobe shouldn’t have any mirrors on it that can possibly reflect the person sleeping on the bed, as it builds up bad energies and can lead to prolonged illness and health issues. Ideally, try to avoid any mirrors in the bedroom but if that’s not possible due to lack of space, then make sure you cover it with a curtain or cloth to avoid having any direct reflections. 

Arrangement of Wardrobe Items As Per Vastu 

Vastu Shastra also states that the wardrobe should be spacious enough to accommodate all your personal and essential items. The items must be reorganised from time to time, and anything unnecessary should be kept out of it. You are required to keep the wardrobe clean and tidy to the extent possible.

If you have a vault or locker inside your wardrobe, then you should never keep it empty. Place some jewellery and cash in it, ideally facing the north, to maintain prosperity and the inflow of cash in the house. The north is considered to be owned by Lord Kubera (God of Money). Alternatively, you can keep five-seven silver coins in the wardrobe as well.

You must ensure that the locker is placed on a solid and stable platform — instead of a shaky one — to maintain balance. It should also be kept on the top shelf of the wardrobe. 

Keeping your wardrobes Vastu-compliant will help ensure that you have a harmonious relationship with your family members and also prosper in your personal and professional lives.
