Mirrors are an essential part of every home. Even a small one bedroom apartment will have at least one mirror. You will find mirrors in bedrooms, bathrooms and in some cases dining rooms. Many people fear about the adverse effects of mirrors when they are not placed as per Vastu especially when placed in the bedroom. That’s why we asked Vastu Acharya Manoj Shrivastava that what are the guidelines in Vastu Shastra for installing mirrors?

According to him, a number of factors need to be considered for the placement of mirrors in the bedroom. Mirrors not only reflect what is in front of them but also the energies of the place where they are placed. This is the reason why you will find many Vastu consultants placing different mirrors at different places in the space to create a beneficial flow of energy in the space. Mirrors also have an effect on the subconscious mind and that changes the behavior of the occupants of space.

Vastu Acharya Manoj Shrivastava Following are the guidelines for mirrors in bedroom based on all the Vastu principles mentioned above.

The first Vastu principle for bedroom is that the mirror should not reflect the couple or person when they are sleeping on the bed. It has to be understood in detail. The nature of a mirror is that when you look at it from a particular angle it will reflect the bed. All you need to do is take care not to place it in such a way that you can see your image in the mirror while lying down. Hence mirrors or television screens, which are also reflective in nature, should not be placed on the opposite wall. You should not place two mirrors facing each other in such a way that they form mirror images of each other. This creates confusion and confusion in the mind.

Vastu experts have found that the mirror opposite the bed often causes arguments and quarrels between the couple, while the mirror placed on the side wall reflects the bed in such a way that it is particularly related to the middle and lower back. causes health problems.

Nowadays, to create a special effect many people use broken mirrors or pieces of mirror to create wall designs. Here many pictures of the person standing in front of this work are made. This should be avoided as it also creates confusion in the mind. There is also the trend of reflective wardrobes which again have the same effect that the couple depicts while sleeping.

According to Vastu Acharya Manoj Srivastava, it is best to have a separate walk-in dressing as is the trend in modern apartments. It not only provides privacy but is also Vastu friendly. If for some reason you are not able to follow the above guidelines while applying the mirror, you can cover it with a sheet or curtain while sleeping.
