If you completed your primary schooling in India, chances are, more likely than not that you have memories of images of doll-sized elephant and horse terracotta statues from your history textbook. Irrespective of your ethnicity, the primal emotion of protectiveness that any parent identifies with is universal: How do we offer our children the best in life, how do we help them grow and most importantly, how do we keep them entertained.

“We want the best for our kids in every area of life, be it health, studies, sports, extracurricular activities, personality development, and so on, but children get the most affected by their environments as their auras are very open and more susceptible,” says Vastukar Neeta Sinha, from Mumbai-based AstroArchitecture. Enhance the positive vibes via Vastu for kid's room with these lucky tips

Avoid gender biases

“The notion of painting a boy’s room blue and girl’s room pink is a gender bias that may prevent your child from achieving their full potential,” Sinha admits. As far as the scheme of the room is concerned, if your child is old enough to recognize colours, one should always ask their opinion on the colour palette depending on the shades your child is attracted to. “Children tend to get attracted to colour energy which is deficient in their body,” the Vastukar feels.

Colour therapy

If you have a toddler or infant, keep the base colour as a light pastel with pops of bright colour. The room should be bright but not in an overpowering way, so always keep the base light. Avoid a monochromatic scheme, just black and white, as it will make your child dull and keep their intelligence stunted. All colours have their own energy; for example, a completely blue room will make your child over imaginative and a deep thinker who gets lost in his thoughts, et cetera. It is very important as per Vastu for kid's room to use colours wisely, and not follow trends blindly.

Guide your child to face either the east (the direction of learning) or north (the direction of stability) as it enhances the flow of prana and keeps their mind focussed.

Small decor changes make a big impact 

Stay vigilant! A child by nature is highly intuitive thus responsive to the room’s vibe. If your child shows any signs of discomfort, try asking them they would like the decor to be rearranged. You may even try changing their room, as a last measure.
