Store Room

Northwest region of the house is the ideal place for a store room for keeping food grains. This ensures their regular supply. The articles of daily use should be stored in the Northwest corner. The store should always be kept clean and its doors and windows should be in the North and east. Clutter free store rooms ensure the continuous availability of food grains in the house and their scarcity is not felt.

Store for keeping heavy machines, wood, tools etc. should be in the Southwest of the house in an open place or in the Southwest corner of the house. If the store has to be made in an open area in the Southwest of the house, then it should be made between the main house and the Southwest corner, supported by the boundary.

  • Store for the useless heavy articles should be made in the Nairritya (SW) region. There should be no dampness or leakage in the store
