Silver Dining Room Table | As Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art of this arrangement of objects to create a harmonious totality which optimizes the flow of power to attract fruition of aims, therefore is Vaastu Shastra the Indian art of designing and building living environments that are in harmony with the physical and metaphysical forces.
Vaastu prescribes the way the furniture therein should be placed and how the different rooms of the home including the dining room should be oriented concerning construction and direction. Vaastu informs you how you should arrange your dining room furniture in a means that is auspicious, at the best manner. The Vaastu of dining room furniture and this dining room is believed to influence the positive impact that eating will have on your family and you.
The fundamentals of Vaastu indicate that the direction is the western portion of the home. There are directives for your dining room furniture: the dining table, shouldn’t be set from the wall and there should be 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 needs the dining room to be free from clutter and not to be crowded with too much furniture. If the dining room is an open dining space; i.e. one which merges with or into the kitchen and / or the drawing room space, there should be a distinction made for the dining room space by demarcating using a display or some potted plants.
Back in Vaastu, not just are there any instructions for organizing dining room furniture like the dining table and the dining seats but also how the different members of the household should be seated. It’s indicated that the parents of the household should sit facing the North, North East, or Eastern directions. It’s also indicated that should the children be seated in the home, they gain control or that direction and inflict their will!
In keeping with ancient Indian customs of creatures Vaastu advises that before beginning the meal, a few little offering should be made to a cow, crow or puppy. It’s deemed inadvisable to have a bathroom starting out to the dining room or adjacent to. As there is much emphasis placed on the true construction of this room and not just the placement of the dining room furniture, it’s suggested that the dining table shouldn’t be placed under a beam. The colour palette for the walls of your dining room considered suitable by Vaastu are crimson or pink or alternative non- calming and jarring colors like cream, or yellow.
