India is known for its culture, tradition, and rich heritage. Vastu is such culture which is followed by every person. Indian people consider it culture but Vastu is a science of architecture and construction. People consider it culture because the Vastu is based on the Hindu culture and Buddhists beliefs.
During ancient time Vastu practices were limited to the temple's architecture only, but now people have started following it in the home as well as office décor.
Vastu provides some guidelines for interior decoration of the house. Understanding of zones is essential for interior décor of any place. There are two categories like negative and positive zones. Vastu mentions keeping the negative zones heavy in comparison with positive zones. You need to place heavy furniture and other objects in the negative zones while the light objects should be placed in positive zones. The positive directions are south, west and southwest and the light n positive directions are East, North, Northeast.
