Balcony refers to a platform that extends from the wall of a building. It is blocked by Vastu for Balconyrailings. It is often attached to a bedroom or living area. It is used for sitting, relaxing and unwinding. It might have a roof. Apartment buildings that have balconies are becoming more popular than courtyards. It provides shelter from rain, sunlight, and storms. It can also be used to gather families for a fun evening in the evening, and to take advantage of the best weather conditions.

These are some Vastu guidelines that you should consider when designing a Balcony.

Balcony location

  • Balconies should be built in the northern or eastern part of your house.
  • North and east are the best positions for a balcony. There is always sunlight from morning until evening. Avoid the southern and western sides of the balcony as they are too hot for sitting.
  • Do not build a balcony on the western or southern side of the main structure.

Furniture arrangements on a Balcony

  • You should not place heavy furniture or seating in the corner to the west, south, or east of your balcony.
  • To avoid direct sun hitting the face, a swing can be placed on the east-west axis. According to Vaastu principles, anyone sitting on a swing while facing either north or south is considered auspicious.
  • Because they require sunlight for growth, small plants should be located on the north-east corner of the balcony. The plants will receive constant sunlight from the east and north directions.
  • Place small flower pots on the balcony. Avoid large pots. Avoid flower pots that contain creepers. Large flower pots and pots filled with creepers can block light from the balcony.

Roof placement of a Balcony

  • The balcony roof should be shorter than the main building’s roof. This will give the balcony a more proportionate appearance to the main structure.
  • Tin and asbestos should not be used as roofs on balconies. They trap heat in the space making it unbearably hot.
