Vastu For Main Door:
Vastu considers the main door to be the entry point for energy into the house. Hence, it is important for it to be able to obstruct negative energy and act as a passage for positive energy. Vastu believes main door responsible for the entry of good luck and joy in your home. Let us discuss how to make your home’s main door Vastu compliant:
Main Door Direction:
Vastu recommends constructing the main door of the property in such a way that it faces east, west, north or north-east direction. These directions are considered auspicious in Vastu Shastra. Always make sure that the main door does not face inauspicious directions that include south, south-west, south-east or north-west directions. However, if your home’s main door is already constructed in such a way that it points towards the south or south-west direction, then, you can correct this vastu defect using the lead metal pyramid. Vastu defect arising due to the door pointing in the north-west direction can be corrected using a brass pyramid or a brass helix.

As per Vastu Shastra, the size of the main door should be bigger than that of any other door in the house. Moreover, avoid constructing three doors in a line and parallel to the main door as it is a Vastu defect and can cause sadness and sorrow in the house.
The material used to construct the main door as per its direction:
a)For main door facing eastwards, it should be made up of wood coupled with a minimum number of metal accessories.
b)For west facing doors, it is recommended to have doors equipped with some metal work.
