According to Vastu Shastra it is inauspicious to place the children's bed in the South-West corner of a flat. According to the ancient art of Vastu Shastra such a bed positioning adversely affects the kids. They become disobedient and create trouble for their parents. They act according to their wish without paying heed to anyone. It is also feared that they might elope or resort to activities, such as, theft. Ideally their beds should be placed in the West, South-East or North directions. It would prove to be quite advantageous for them. The bedrooms in the East or North-East are for the male children while the girl child should be given the rooms in the South-East direction.
It is better if the beds of the children are placed along the Western wall. Remarkable progress will be seen among the children if they sleep with their legs towards the East. The southern side needs to be avoided. The study table should be in the West or East. Children are required to face the East direction while studying. Even the North direction is also acceptable. However in this case too avoid placing the study table in the South and the South-West. The wardrobes for keeping clothes should be kept in the North - West, South and West. The North -East corner can be used for placing the earthen pot of drinking water.
Due to the space crunch in a flat study cum meditation room is a favorable option here. If these are constructed within the rooms they should be located in the West, North-West, East or North-East. It is more advantageous to have the study cum meditation room in the West. Whether one is meditating or studying he or she should face the East direction. Both the bookshelf and the study table are to be put in the West.
In case there is a computer for the kid that is required to be placed in the South-East or North-West. It should not be kept in the South-West or North-East. The West, North and South are good positions to keep the cupboard for books. Use the space in the North - East corner for keeping the earthen jar of drinking water. If there is a Pooja Ghar in the study cum meditation room then the idols must be placed in such away that they face either the East or West directions.
Gardens are acceptable around the flats. It is permissible to plant trees which grow tall like the Neem, Gulmohar, Eucalyptus, Ashok etc. along the West and South sides of the apartment. These plants should not be grown in the open spaces in the East and North sides of the apartment. Instead these spaces can be utilized as a lawn. It must also be remembered that gardening should never be done in the South or South-West space around the apartment.
