Staircase Vastu Tips
Staircases – or stairs for short – are an important part of each and every multistory house.
Stairs allow you to move from one level of home to another level – easily and fluently.
What You Must DO
Construct staircase in South-West corner or West or South directions in a home.
You can construct external staircase in South-East facing East, South-West facing West, North-West facing North and South-West facing South.
Vastu for Staircase suggests that while going up via stairs, one must climb towards West or South; and while descending one should descend towards East or North. Provide a turn in any direction due to paucity of the land.
Keep the stairs clockwise as far as possible.
Use the area under a stair as store place.
Provide a roof sloping towards East or North at the top of staircase.
Keep the number of steps odd. Make sure that the number of risers when divided by 3 leaves 2 as remainder. E.g. 5, 11, 17 etc.
Use light and soothing colors for a Staircase. Avoid red and black color for stairs.
Repair broken stairs immediately else it may cause accident and conflict in family due to mental tension.
What You Must AVOID
The staircase must never be in the North-East side of the home.
If the staircase is in the North-East of the home then there will be financial and business losses; also the head of the family will be in debt.

If the space is less and staircase constructed in South-East or North-West then it may, to some, extent affect health of children in the family.
