of Northeast, West of Northwest. The entrance door should not directly be in
front of the main gate as whatever comes in, tends to flow out with ease. The

case the kitchen is in Southeast, should be towards the East and in the latter
it should be north.
Bed Room: The master bedrooms should be in
the South West corner of the house. If the house has more than one floor then,
then it should be on the top most floor. The ceiling should be in level; this
makes the energy of the room uniform, which in turn gives one a steady state of
mind. Children's room should be in the north-west or west side. To have a better
concentration they should have a separate study close to their bedrooms.
Southeast is not recommended as this is the quadrant of fire and couples tend to
be more argumentative in that corner. The Northwest can also be avoided as being
the pocket of air one tends to be away from the home for some reason or the
Study Room: The best locations for this room
are the north, west, north-west, east, north east. These directions attract the
