The modern lifestyle emphasizes on planning an architecture that brings prosperity and happiness to the inhabitants. Swimming pools are no exception to be laid out according to the vastu principles. This appropriately qualifies it to be a place of cleansing and purity.
Planning out a swimming pool
Preferred direction is north, north-east or east. However, central location should definitely be avoided, as it acts as the absorber of energy.
Proper gates not only add detail to the entire structure, it also avoids any negative energy to enter the area. Further, tall boundary around it promotes energy cluttering.
A perfectly defined shape like rectangle, circle or square creates an even space for energy balance. An irregular pool creates hotspots of energy, thus making the entire construction irrelevant.
It should slope downward towards the N, E or NE direction to ward off the unwanted energies. Regular cleaning and maintenance constantly disperses accumulated energies.
It is advisable to consult a vastu expert for adding any other feng shui article to the area, like paintings, crystals and stones. This enhances the essence of planning out a personalized area that ensures soothing vibrations.
