Living/ Hall:
     The living room is an important part of the house. Hence it should be in the northern portion. Its door should open either to the north or the north-east. The furniture in this room should be placed in the southern & the western direction. It is always better to leave the northern part of this room open.
Poojaghar:
     The most important place in the house is the place of worship, the poojaghar. As far as possible the poojaghar should be in the northeast of the house. In the event of the house being too small to have an exclusive Poojaghar, one can at least have the place of worship in the northeastern side. Place it in such a fashion that the deity would face the west while the one who performs the pooja would face east. Photographs or images of two different deities should never be placed in front of each other. If the numbers of deities are more than one, they should be placed in one straight line.
Master Bedroom:
     The bedroom should be in the southern or the southwestern part of the house. It should be arranged in such a way that whoever sleeps there would have his head towards the south & his feet towards the north. On awaking up one should have ones sight set in the north, the abode of Lord Kubera, who showers prosperity.
Children Bedroom:
     The bedroom should be in the northern or the northwestern part of the house.

     The kitchen should be located in the southeast of the house. Appliances like stoves, gas should be kept in the southeastern direction in the room. The arrangement should be such that the one who prepares food would have his /her face towards the east. Direction of main working table is towards east. Direction of store table is towards south.

     The west, north of the house is ideally suited for the dining hall. While partaking the food one should sit facing the east. This arrangement makes everybody contended & peace prevails among family members.
Wash Basin:

Godown:
     For grains & food materials: The family never faces shortage of food & grains if the northwestern side of the house is spared for storing them. Metallic objects, not being used, can also be stored in this room. But since the southwest direction is supposed to be the abode of demons, the poojaghar should never be located in this direction. This room should have the minimum number of doors & windows & these should be as small as possible. This room should be dark-colored & should never be used for auspicious ceremonies.
Bathroom:
     The bathroom in the house should be in the north, the middle- east, south, and west direction. A bathroom in the northeast of the house brings in Loss of prosperity. If it is in the eastern-side, it ushers in physical well being along with prosperity. A bathroom located in the southeast of the house is not good for the health of the lady of the house.
