Vastu Tips for Cellars | Basement Vastu Tips | Undergrounds | Rumpus room | Tenement

Basement Vastu Tips: Due to place shortage man hunting for various ways for parking, shopping places, house, living, office (office vastu) areas etc.

In his search, he finds one good idea and implemented the CELLAR. In some areas, these cellars are called "Basements" or "underground".

What is the Meaning of Basement?

Basement means, it's nothing but a cellar, or a floor that below the main floor land, (downstairs or underground room). Here basement means another floor under the main ground level floor. Or it is also called a lower ground floor or dunny Be alert when dealing with basements as these have come under land depressions and elevations. Proper care has to be taken.

Suitable Basement Placements As per Vastu

==> Don't plan for cellars to construct at Southwest corner of the plots (plot vastu), house, shopping complex, factory (factory vastu).

==> When preparing the house Vastu plans then keep it in mind about this basements and their placements as per Vastu.

==> Wrong placement of basement ruins entire enterprise. One should be careful when planning of such cellars to their properties.

==> Normally, the Northeast corner is the best suitable place for the Cellars.

==> Several experienced vastu consultants advise not to go cellars towards West, most of the cases these West cellars may damage residents hardship and peace.

Please note that some principles on basements may not work properly, because of they situated in Cities or towns or villages, this is indeed a huge subject to discuss. Anyway before going for remediation for any mistake, best to show the property to one expert and obtain an appropriate decision.

==> Is Basement good for business: Coming straight to the point, generally, the east and north facing basements may not give good results. But in the same way, the South and West facing basements are giving good results in getting business. Most of the time, this rule may not be applicable in cities.

For example, if take Chickpet in Bangalore city, many East Facing Shops have basements, so the negativity will become diluted and spread to all and finally makes this rule uncountable.

If there are very rare basements in one town say for example Anakapalli, then they may not get good results if they run businesses in east facing or north facing basements. If this small town also having several east basement shops or homes then this rule will be ruled out.

==> Vastu for basement office: The same above rule is also applicable to basement offices. Anyway, caution is safe to follow.

Guidlines for Basement

Normally, the basement for East facing houses is not recommended.

Generally, the basement for West facing homes will become good, if it is planned at East direction only.

Usually, the basement for North Facing Houses are not auspicious. It is required to take experts opinion before finalizing North basements.

Typically, the basement for South facing houses may be supportive, if it is planned at North direction only.

Tentatively the basement for Northeast facing houses may not assistive for the benefit of the users. For some NE shops this basement fit, but it should be decided by expert.

Commonly, the basement for Southeast facing homes may be decided by the consultant, he will guide after observing several homes or shops in neighbor locations.

Customarily, the basement for Southwest facing homes are superb, but the condition is it should be properly planned at NE direction.

Ordinarily the cellar at Northwest Facing Homes may or may not supportive, it has to be decided by the pandits. Please show the property and then only get adequate ideas on the spot.

Northeast Basement

vastu tips for cellarsIn this image house the cellar constructed towards the Northeast corner. Here the notable point is where the cellar is constructing and to which property it is planning to incorporate. The compound premises should be calculated here when planning for cellars.

If there is heavier open space at the boundary premises then better not to plan for the basement. When there is heavier open space towards the Northeast corner at compound premises then planning of basement to Home is not advisable.

If there is very short space that might support the basement, if there is no space, that would enrich the future. In this image the Home is almost occupied the entire compound premises, it has very lesser open space in between home and compound wall, so one may plans for the basement.

Southwest Basement

Vastu tips for BasementGenerally in Vastu tips section we minimized to publishing images, actually, we thought to publish this basement information at Vastu for House link only. Please "WAIT" and observe this image for 2 seconds. The cellar is constructed at the Northeast corner of the house, it's OK, then what is the twist here.

To be frank most of the Vaastu consultants serving this type of construction plan, now we are discussing this structure, is there any mistake in cellar structure.

Yes, what is the mistake in the cellar construction, please read the above image para once again, then you may easily understand the aberration that happens here.

The cellar came into the Southwest portion of the entire compound premises. Though it is Northeast cellar, but for the entire compound premises, it named as Southwest basement, see the blunder with a minor fault of decision.

Generally Vastu Expert never do such mistakes. Simple logic but could not estimate.

==> Not recommended to construct the cellar at Southwest corner.

==> Not advisable to construct any cellar type constructions at the Southwest corner in our compound wall zone.

==> In the above image the cellar came to Part Number '4' , that comes to Southwest corner of the House.

==> Please observe the above image for 10 seconds, number ' 1' belongs to Ishan (Northeast) Block, ' 2 ' belongs to Agneya (Southeast) Block, number ' 3 ' belongs to Vayavya (Northwest) Block and finally number ' 4 ' belongs to Nairuthi (Southwest) Block, hope now you understand the exact meaning of the above picture. Now the cellar came into Nairuthi Block.

Already we discussed that we should not construct any cellar type constructions at Nairuthi Block. Dhanyavaad for understanding the above logic thing. You are intelligent.

North Direction Basement

Vastu tips for UndergroundIn this image the basement occupies the North direction Its good placement of cellar in the property, may help to get satisfying business or getting new opportunities in business, money flow, cash rotation may also observe, we should not forget one thing here, i.e., road, where is the road and what is the measurement of that road is also considered properly.

If there is a huge North road, then benefits of this system may be minimized or it may not work as expected. For each and everything, we should think logically. If there is a South road, then this method is suitable. It suits West road properties also. East road properties also not to plan this construction.

Basement at East Direction

Vaasthu Shastra Tips for East Direction CellarsWithout obtain expert Vastu Specialist opinion don't plan for the construction of cellars or basements. Here the cellar came towards the East direction. This is also good property. It supports to have good name and fame and also good money.

Here this basement occupies the East direction area, it means there is a depression that exists towards the East direction, if the East direction is slope or depression then generally the easy flow of money and good name to residents. As already we discussed above this kind of cellars may not be planned when there is a bigger East road. Further

West Direction Basement

Vasthu Shastra Tips for West direction  basementThe Expert Vastu pandit explains how to make the basement to your properties. In this image, the cellar located at West direction, if the west direction is having slope, down, depression then the entire system fails. This is not good system of construction, don't go for this type of constructions, if so the residents get ill-health, financial crisis, enemies hand rising, etc.

When looking for basement shop Vastu, it is clear that several times, the basement for shops towards West may be extending support to the entrepreneurs. Please note that the basement for the shop should be only at East including Northeast too. The good shop vastu always support the investors. Hence, we all requesting you to arrange everything to save your money, future, peace, and finally investment.

Basement Located at South Direction

Vastu Shastra Tips for South Direction basement==> Basements are different in India and other parts of the world. In this image the Basement came into South, so the residents will suffer with severe ill-health, entire financial failures in doing Business, ladies may get mental disturbances, etc.

Southwest Basement

Southwest basementIn some western countries basement is mandatory, at that time, we must carefully observe the directions of the property and where the commonplace is provided, etc things must be watched and thereafter we have to take the decision whether the basement property is good to buy or not. In this image the cellar located at Southwest direction, this is not safe, some times deaths may happen, insecure feelings, heavy losses, tragedies, unhappy, unlucky, etc may be possible.

==> Please note down, the cellars are some times giving very good results, and some times gives very very bad results, to avoid all these consequences please consult one expert in Vastu Shastra and get suggestion from him only, don't see the Vastu Consultant fees, your life is important, not the fee.

Vastu For Basement Stairs

If the basement is in the right position, then residents have to fix the staircase exact placement as per Vastu to the basement. Don't keep the staircase in the wrong places. For example, if the basement is in the Northeast of the entire home, the staircase should not build exactly at the Northeast of the basement.

A staircase can be fixed at either Northwest or Southeast in the basement. Please note that, due to a shortage of spaces, some may arrange a staircase in the Southwest of the basement, if the basement is exactly at the Northeast of the home, then it won't hurt the residents.

Toilet In Basement As Per Vastu

If the basement is in the correct position, then residents plan a toilet at either Northwest or Southeast of the basement. Don't plan the toilet at Northeast or Southwest in the basement.

Vastu For Basement Ramp

Just like a staircase to the basement, the ramp also fixed at either Northwest or at Southeast. If the ramp placed at Southwest of the basement, it is not problematic, for exact Northeast basements.

Is Basement Good For House

For Southwest, South and West homes, the Northeast basement increases many opportunities.

In some areas, the basement for North homes and East homes does not blessed with good quality results. This point should be applicable for some areas and some homes only. It won't applicable for all homes.

Normally, NE basement for west facing homes blesses the residents with good luck.

Generally, NE basement for South facing homes increases the money flow.

Please observe where is the walkout basement located. Without appropriate consultation from vastu experts, don't buy walkout basement home which is North facing house. Furthermore, walkout basement for Northeast home is also not advisable to buy.

Every resident put down their hard-earned money on the home, with a very small mistake of non-vastu compliance home, all of their savings washed away. Be careful on the walk-out basement.

Likewise, inhabitants should take care on the walk in the basement too. Points to be noted while dealing with walk-in basement. In which direction this walk-in basement located, how it is proceeding to inside in which direction, what is above of this walk-in basement. All these points are important when buying the home.

Daylight basement can also be planned at homes, they should be properly planned and arranged as per Vastu. Where windows are coming, in which direction, etc, be alert. Please get proper guidance from experts in Vastu.

Generally, there are 3 types of basements. They are poured concrete, masonry or block walls, and precast panels.

What is Unexcavated Area in The Basement

"Unexcavated area’ the actual meaning is an area outlast undug and no way to accessible. The entire basement ends along this area where it is shown. The remaining all area in the basement is excavated and avail to use for regular purposes. But this unexcavated area should be inaccessible and it is just like a solid construction that is suitable for the car parking on top of this unexcavated place.

Unexcavated Area in the Southeast

Unexcavated place in SoutheastIn this image the unexcavated area came at Southeast corner. The Northeast corner is accessible for the basement users, this SE won't accessible. If you are looking to take rent of this basement having SE unexcavated area, it is acceptable.

Unexcavated Area Located at Northeast

Northeast corner Unexcavated areaHere this image showing unexcavated area constructed at Northeast corner. With this unexcaated area in the basement the Northeast corner is inaccessible for the basement users, and SE is accessible. This may not help the basement users, if you are planning to take rent of this NE unexcavated portion in the basement, then best to choose other home, than this.

Unexcavated Area in the SouthWest Is Good

The unexcated area at Southwest is acceptable, no worries on this construction.

Having Unexcavated Area at the Northwest is Good?

When the unexcavated area came at Northwest, then the Southwest has an available place to use. So the Northwest Unexcavated area is not wrong.

Unexcavated Area in the East

Generally the skewed plots or homes have such East direction unexcavated areas, generally, this is not giving auspicious results if the basement is heavily used by the residents. If they are not using the basement heavily, then no need to worry on this East Unexcavated construction.

North Direction Unexcavated Area is Bad?

If the home is inclined then this North direction unexcavated area will be possible, this is also not bad.

Where Should We Arrange Electricity Switch Boards in the Basement?

Switch boards are important and it is not fire. Some thought that this is fire and they should be only located in the Southeast. This is not fire. It is only accommodating instruments to switch on the light and fans, etc. Residents can arrange them at their convenient places.

Basement Finishings And Their Culture

1. Unfinished Basement: These are very common in USA and Canada. Generally, this unfinished basement design particularly found in spaces where there are larger than the traditional cellars. Most probably this unfinished basement is used for keeping the washer or dryer sets, freezer/refrigerator, storing the various unused material boxes which are normally not in daily routine usage in the main home. In some homes, these unfinished basements were used for home workshops because of less noise and to a lesser degree of a nuisance.

2. Finished Basement: This finished basement can be used just like a home, it is a costly venture and some more burden for the residents to make it finished. The builder charged more money on the finished basement. Some residents transmitting these finished basements to rent. With that rental income, they will pay home monthly loan installments. These finished basements are very common in the USA, Canada, Switzerland, England, Ireland, etc.

3. Partially Finished Basement: This feature is rare. In the USA some homes have these partially finished basements.

4. Fully Finished Basement – Retrofit: This type of retrofit basements can be found in England particularly in London. In most cases, these retrofit basements are finished basements, not to say exactly, many were be even unfinished too. We never come across any retrofit basements in the USA.

We are tech professionals and working in USA. After a year long search we brought the house. After buying the house I started looking for consultant who can help me evaluating the house. I came across Subhavaastu website which has lot of information. I contacted Mr.Suresh and requested him to help with our house vastu. It has been an incredible delight working with him.. He is very detailed oriented person and never compromises with his work. I am typically not interested to deliver the reviews. But after working with Mr. Suresh I decided to share my experience. Mr. Suresh has great expertise in providing vastu consultation to USA property. He is always available through email and phone l to answer questions. I am writing this review hoping it will help other people like me who lives in abroad. Please take advise before buying the house. I highly recommend Mr. Suresh as he has great experience with structure of USA properties and also he provides genuine consultation. I really appreciate Mr. Suresh's help in evaluating our house - Padma - Boston - USA

"I contacted Sureshji to consult on our current home. He was spot on in identifying vastu dosha in regards to the problems we were having. He suggested remedies but we are still looking for a new house. Since then I have been in touch with him for finding a right home for us. He is very sincere and truly wishes better lives for everyone. He doesn’t compromise with quality and is always responsive to queries. He recommends solutions as per location as vaastu rules differ for each country. He is greatly contributing to the society with his knowledge of Vaastu Shastra and dedication towards his work. Keep up the good work Sureshji and wish you success and happiness!" - Megha - Virginia - USA

I have consulted Suresh Garu during December 2014 during the process of buying a house in Texas, USA. I have occupied the house for one year now, and feel like dropping a review regarding my experience during the entire process. I am very much satisfied with the kind of service I received from him. He is very knowledgeable and I was often stunned by his detailed analysis during the course of my interaction with him. He was very much accessible over phone (perhaps more than 10 times for one house plan!) and the price is very much reasonable especially compared with the cost of the house. I noticed his burning desire to help me in making informed decisions on certain things. I have seen some people pretending to know this subject and misguiding those who come for help by saying only what we want to hear. SubhaVaastu is definitely not that one. Finally, I am strong believer of leaving certain things to experts in those subjects. I have been in US for more than 13 years and have seen people doing their own corrections (by reading website articles) trying to save few dollars. Please don’t do that. You would end up in causing more damage. I highly recommend you to engage SubhaVaastu in your next project - Satish - Dallas - TX - USA
