Glass Dining Room Table Set |
Vaastu prescribes the furniture therein should be put and the different chambers of the home such as the dining area should be oriented concerning direction and construction. Vaastu informs you how you need to arrange your dining room furniture in a means that is auspicious. The Vaastu of this dining area and dining room furniture is said to influence the impact that ingestion will have on your family and you.
The principles of Vaastu indicate that the way is the western portion of the home. There are also directives for the dining room furniture: the dining table, should not be put against the wall and there should be adequate space all over the dining table to move comfortably. The dining table may be of a square or rectangle shape.
Like the tenets of Feng Shui, Vaastu also requires the dining area to be free from clutter and to not be crowded with too much furniture. If the dining area is an open plan area; i.e. one that merges with or into the kitchen and / or the drawing room area, there should be a distinction made for the dining room area by demarcating with a display or any potted plants.
In Vaastu, not only are there instructions for arranging dining room furniture like the dining table and the dining chairs but also the members of their family should be seated. It is suggested that the parents of their family must sit facing the North, North East, or Eastern instructions. It is also suggested that if the children be seated in they gain control that specific direction or the home and inflict their own will upon their parents!
In keeping with ancient Indian customs of animals Vaastu advises that before beginning the meal, some small offering should be made to a cow, crow or puppy. It is considered inadvisable to have a bathroom starting out to the dining area or adjoining to. Since there’s much emphasis put on the construction of this room and not simply the positioning of the dining area furniture, it’s suggested that the dining table should not be put below a beam. The color palette for the walls of the dining area considered suitable by Vaastu are crimson or pink or alternative non- calming and jarring colors such as cream, or yellow.
