Color plays a  vital role in adding beauty to the apartment and influencing the mood, happiness and health of people living in that apartment. Today, Vaastu is a buzzword that prescribes desirable characteristics for sites and buildings based on the flow of energy. Vaastu is the science of directions that combines all the five elements (earth, water, air, fire and sky) of nature and balances them with man and material. Here are some guidelines for you to pick up right colors for your rooms or apartment.

Choosing Color for Your Room

Some colors will have certain impacts on the mood of the person. Colors can make you active, dull and some colors will have neutral effects. The following colors are considered auspicious or recommended by Vaastu.

  • Red: Red is the most dramatic, emotional and active color. It is used in those areas where one needs excitement, warmth and elegance. It should not be used in bedrooms because of its energizing quality.
  • Blue: Blue symbolizes relaxation and is a cool color. This color is recommended for bedroom, meditation room or for room designed for relaxing or sleeping.
  • Yellow: It is a powerful color, both light in value and extremely intense in its purest form. It evokes a sense of energy and excitement.It stimulates the brain and is recommended for all rooms where brainpower is used such as study room, office etc. This color is not recommended for rooms where sunlight enters directly to the room. For instance, for the pooja room, yellow color is perfect.
  • White: It’s an elegant color and looks good when combined with other colors. This color is recommended for ceilings where the light reflects and brightens the room. This color can be used in the north-west bedroom.
  • Green: It brings harmony, as well as provides a good and healthy environment to the room. Green color is good for the study room as it rejuvenates ideas. Green goes with every other color and makes it a natural neutral.

Vaastu Guidelines for Colors and Direction


Vaastu colors differ from one person to another depending on their sun or moon sign but colors on the basis of direction seem similar as it is recommended based on the planets and the direction of the room. For instance, rooms in the North can be in light hues of green. Rooms in the West can be Grey, while those in the South can be in shades and hues of red. Rooms in the South-East can be varied or of mixed colors. Rooms in the South-West  can be all Greens while those in the North-East  can be in shades and tones of yellow like cream. Rooms in the North-west  and East  can be white.

Vaastu recommends to avoid colors like brown, dark blue, black and grey in study rooms and rooms were you want to be active because these colors make lazy and may cause frustration and depression.

  • Light color is recommended for small rooms as these colors make your room seem larger and brighter.
  • Dark colors are sophisticated with warm colors better suited for large rooms. They give large rooms a more intimate appearance.
  • Generally, ceilings that are lighter than the wall color feel higher, while those that are darker feel lower.
