According to Vastu, the color used in your homes plays a vital role in affecting your mood and the character of the residents. There are a few colors you must avoid like red, black and grey at the entrance. Colors which you should apply are blue, yellow, white and dark green.
2) Choice of plants

This is also one of the most important factors that constitutes to your mood and health. if your living rooms have exposed beams, they are considered to affect your mood which makes you depressed, leading to disagreements and arguments in the family. But if you have bought a house and cannot help it, then you should avoid sitting beneath beam as it will keep your mind occupied with something or the other to be worried about. You can also mask the beams with the help of fall ceiling or by hanging a lamp or chandelier.

A cluttered room always gives a negative feeling whereas a neatly furnished room gives the impression of you being an organized and efficient individual. According to Vastu, a cluttered bedroom brings negative vibrations. Your bedroom is a place where you feel relaxed and composed so it should be spacious enough to let you loose and ease.
