Even happiness and prosperity enter our home through the entrance door. Make it look welcoming! Empty walls of the entrance feel dull and look empty. Decorate it and make it lively. Place a statue or picture of Lord Ganesha at the entrance for divine blessings.

​2. Meditative meditation

Prayer and meditation is essential for spirituality and peace in the home. North-east direction is best place for it. Make your pooja room here where you can sit and meditate.

Kitchen place an important part in maintaining the relationship and health of the family. Family binds over food. So make sure that sink and gas stove is kept at maximum distance since water and fire are contradictory energy. It should be kept away from each other.
