Vaastu Tips for Staircase

Staircase Vaastu

Before choosing size of staircase or direction you should have a clear idea about placement of the stairs that confirms with Vaastu Shastra principles. Below we will see vaastu tips for staircase.

Direction for Staircase:  

A staircase should always build in the west or south direction of the house. It should not be constructed in the Northeast corner that gives financial losses for the owner. In fact, the staircase constructed in any direction except west or south brings losses.



Always start on stairs from north to south or east to west. A turn can be taken to other sides, due to lack of space.

Always construct the Stairs with odd number, ensure that number never end with a zero. This odd number of stairs if divided by three (3) their remains must be two (2).

The  room which having staircase in the Southwest corner of a basement is considered inauspicious. As per Vaastu principles, residents in this room/ house have to experience many health problems like, high blood pressure, critical diseases, anemia etc….!

Vaastu Tips for Staircase

Here are few vaastu tips about constructing staircase to lead a happy life.

  • Broken down stairs should be repaired immediately, as they leads to tensions and accidents.
  • Bathroom, Kitchen, or Pooja room never is constructed under the staircase. This space can be used for storage room only.
  • Never keep safety lockers or Cash counter under the staircases
  • The toilet under Stairs in Southeast can causes legal problems and also cause fights with family members and/or neighbors. 
  • Remedy: Apply red color shades to this direction
  • Stairs should be painted in light colors only.

    I live in USA, I recently rented a house and I have some questions about the Vaastu particularly the stairs. House is facing North, as soon as you open the door we see Stairs and to the left in NE is Open Hall. Attached to the Stairs is the wall and other side of it is Garage.

  13. Deval Mehta says:

    Hello Piyushji,

    I live in USA. I have recently bought a house whose entrance is NW and we have stairs in NE side, going up form east to west. Before the start of stairs, we have stage area which is two steps up from the living floor and then to move up the stairs, one has to turn counter clockwise. Reading few articles have suggested that this is a vastu dosh. Is it true? If so, can you please help me? Please note that, the house has not been built yet but under construction and I can’t change the structure of the house. Also, this is a townhouse means, its south-east is open (which is backside of the house) and NW is open which is front of the house. My other two sides are other townhouses sharing north and south walls.

    We are planning to move to rented house. We like one house but it has staircase in SE corner clockwise.
    It has still parking on ground floor. Entry to the 3rd floor (the one we plan to move in) is from south. House is corner facing east and south. Lift is in south center.
    Also the house has toilet in both NW and SW corners which are attached to respective bed rooms.
    Kitchen is towards southeast after entering the house. East wall is mainly glass wall. Except the part belonging to staircase.
    I am mainly concerned with the position of stairs in SE and the toilet in SW, is it fine as per Vaastu.
    Can we move into such house, on rent?

  32. Rohit Chemburkar says:

    Dear Sir,

    My house in Mumbai has an internal staircase on the eastern side which aligned in the east-west direction. Due to lack of space, it rises from west to east for the first 3 steps, then turns anticlockwise to a mid-landing (of 4 steps) & finally rises from east to west for 10 more steps for a total of 17 steps. The staircase does not touch the eastern wall & does not obstruct any early morning light coming into the house from the northeast direction. My master bedroom is in the south-west corner on the first floor Is this arrangement ok as per Vastushastra?


  33. Sambasivarao says:

    3) Then turn towards north and climb till top of the house (about 7 steps).
    Please study this arrangement and suggest.
