The entrance of the home is not just there to welcome the family and guests, but it is also the entry and exit point for the energy. The world is made up of energy. Whether positive or negative, energy affects the life of the inhabitants of the home. Obviously the positive energy will bring in prosperity and happiness. Negative energy… well do we have to say. Today we have brought for you 10 simple Vastu tips for the home entrance. Follow them and make your home a happy place to live in.

1. Coordinate between the main gate and entrance door

Having the main gate of the house and the entrance door along the same line is considered to be inauspicious according to Vastu. This will avoid the direct flow of energy. Also make sure that no shadow falls on the main door, especially those of trees and buildings.
