  Vaastu for Balcony
The increase in apartment buildings, security reasons and safety from rain and dust, have deterred people from adopting courtyards in their homes and so Balconies have taken the place of Courtyards.

Balconies, verandahs, and terraces should ideally be built on the north, northeast, or east sides of the house, not on the south or west sides. If a balcony is on the southwest side of a house, it should be covered and closed.

A Balcony is a platform that projects from the wall of the building and is surrounded by a railing. It is usually attached and accessed from the Bedroom. It is meant for relaxing. It may or may not have a roof.

Balconies should be in the East or North part of the house: They should not be to the South or the West sides of the main building. The Scientific Reason - A Balcony is a good place to sit out and sun-bathe. So the ideal position for this will be in the North, where there is constant sunlight and the East where there is morning Sunlight.The West and South sides are too hot to sit and hence should be avoided.

Heavy furniture and seating should be placed only in the South-West part of the Balcony: The Scientific Reason – The North and East parts of the Balcony should not be obstructed by heavy furniture, so that the sunlight can stream in and light up the whole place.

A swing should be placed in the East-West axis: The Scientific Reason - This way, the person sitting on the swing, faces either North or South and thus the sun will not hit him in the face directly.

Small plants can be placed in the North-East of the Balcony: The Scientific Reason - Plants need sunlight to thrive and so should be placed in the North-East, where there is constant, morning sunlight. However if they grow too tall or grow up a pillar, they will obstruct the light into the Balcony and so should be kept short.

Keep only small flower pots in the Balcony: Flower pots with Creepers should not be kept in the Balcony. The Logic - Big flower pots and pots with owerflowing creepers tend to obstruct light into the Balcony.

Height of the Balcony roof should be less than the roof of the main bilding: The Logic - A Balcony is a small space and will look proportional only if the roof is a bit lower than the rest of the building.

Avoid using asbestos or tin roof for a Balcony: The Logic - A tin or asbestos roof absorbs and traps heat within a space, making it uncomfortably hot for the users.

LOCATION OF A BALCONY:

  • Balconies should be in the East or North part of the house.
  • Avoid Balconies in the South or the West sides of the main building.
ARRANGEMENT OF FURNITURE IN A BALCONY:
  • Heavy furniture and seating should be placed in the South-West of the balcony.
  • Swing should be in the East-West axis.
  • Small plants should be placed in the North-East of the Balcony.
  • Keep only small flower pots in the Balcony.
  • Avoid flower pots with creepers in the Balcony.
BALCONY ROOF:

  • Avoid using asbestos or tin for the roof of a Balcony.
