Construct a living room in East (not in South East corner, except for South facing houses) or in North.
A living room is more beneficial in North direction.
The North-West living room is also good; since presiding element of North-West part of a home is “Air”, the guests in this drawing-room start to feel restless after sometime and tend to leave early. This could be a great site of living area for families who want to avoid late night parties and get-together.
God presides North-East of the house and this is one of the ideal locations for a living room, however it’s better suited for a pooja or prayer room.
A living room in North brings lot of wealth and health for entire family.
South-West located living room makes your guests feel at home and they stick to your home for long time. If you – and your family – have very active social life and just love your guests to stay too long (which could be difficult to manage at times) then you can locate your living room here. However, this place is best suited for Master Bedroom.
