In a house toilets and bathrooms can become a source of negative energies if Vastu principles are not followed while constructing them. Pandit Pawan Kaushik, who is a renowned Vastu expert in Delhi, says, “Vastu guidelines strictly lay stress on the separation of bathrooms from the rooms of the house which our grandmothers and mothers followed in their times.” But due to the space restrictions, the concept of attached toilets has made its way into our present culture. Still, if we make them Vastu Compliant, the negative energies can be swayed away from our living space. If you do not wish to be troubled with the problems that come along with a wrongly placed or maintained bathroom, read the ways that can save you from all the chaos.
