Vaastu Tips for Incorporating Glass in Interiors

In our last blog, we discussed Feng Shui tips drawing inspiration from Chinese philosophy. Today, as we promised, we will be talking about Vaastu, a traditional Hindu system of architecture based on ancient texts. While many of us follow the Vaastu Shastra during home construction, its consideration is equally important in designing your home’s interiors and exteriors. Vaastu Shastra revolves around five major elements (Pancha Bhoota); For example, you can bring water elements into your space by incorporating glass and mirrors. It symbolizes calmness, positivity, flow, communication, and reflection. However, introducing glass and mirrors into homes takes careful consideration. Let’s look at some Vaastu suggestions for smoothly incorporating glass and mirror products and bringing positive energy into your home spaces. Correct Placement: Vaastu emphasizes the importance of directional positioning. When adding glass and mirrors to your home, make sure they are positioned on the northern or eastern wall. This is because these walls receive maximum sunlight, therefore allowing them to reflect and amplify this positive energy throughout the space. However, glass and mirrors should never be placed on the southern or western walls of the house. It can disrupt the flow of energy and hinder the desired effects. Here are some additional mirror placements that follow Vaastu Sastra guidelines: Selection of glass and mirrors: Opt for clear and unblemished glass materials. This will ensure that the maximum amount of sunlight is able to pass through and create a bright and uplifting atmosphere in your home. Additionally, consider using mirrors with a clean and polished surface to enhance the reflection of light and positive energy within your space. Avoid using frosted or stained glass, as Vaastu encourages transparency for a free flow of energy. In temple areas, however, to maintain privacy, you can use fluted glass doors, as they don’t only obstruct the natural light but also provide privacy. If you want to create interesting patterns and vibrant colors with glass etching, you can also do that. Just make sure there is a good flow of natural light. Avoid broken glass Broken or cracked glass is considered inauspicious in Vaastu. Broken or cracked glass disrupts the positive energy flow in a space and can bring bad luck. Therefore, replace any broken glass immediately and ensure that all glass surfaces are in good condition. Balancing Elements Vaastu suggests incorporating a mix of elements for equilibrium. Combine glass with wood or earthy textures to ground the space and create a harmonious ambiance. For example, in a living room, you can achieve a balanced Vaastu design by incorporating glass coffee tables or glass cabinet doors alongside wooden furniture. Window Considerations Windows play a crucial role in Vaastu, as they act as portals for light, air, and cosmic energy to enter a building. Windows should be proportionate to the size of the wall and room. Avoid excessively large or small windows. The placement of windows is also important in achieving a balanced Vaastu design. It is best to have windows on opposite sides of a room to allow for cross-ventilation and a harmonious flow of energy. Additionally, it is advisable to avoid placing windows directly opposite doors, as this can lead to a clash of energies. Remember Vaastu principles are not rigid rules but guidelines for creating a harmonious and healthy living space. By applying these tips, you can seamlessly integrate glass into your interiors while respecting the principles of Vaastu.
