The Ideal Direction to Place the Shoe Rack

Purchasing a Shoe Rack? Know about the right placement directions & the ones you should totally avoid.

A shoe rack gives a systematic arrangement to all your footwear. Getting one is easy but the placement of your shoe rack may require a lot of wisdom. As per Hindu Mythology "Vastu Shastra" is the traditionally accepted science of architecture and plays a major role in the design, layout, and structure of present-day Indian homes. While the structure and interior of some homes are typically designed keeping in mind the Vastu norms, there are some small things to be taken care of. One such thing is the correct placement of the shoe rack. Vastu Shastra even describes the correct placement of shoe racks in your house, which can bring fortune to your lives and controvert, a wrong placement can hinder growth and opportunities. Below are described the directions and areas in an apartment, where one should and should not place a shoe rack.

The Ideal Directions to Place a Shoe Rack:

Now that you know the don’ts, let’s take a look at some of the best practices which you can follow while placing the shoe racks.

  • Place your shoe rack in the west or south-west direction.
  • If keeping it at the entrance is the only option, keep it outside the door and avoid holding the shoe racks at the inside entrance.
  • Your shoe racks can find a place in the living room of the house. The ideal position for situating a shoe rack is the south-west corner of the main hall or porch.
  • Keep your shoe racks clean and well arranged as the unclean shoe racks brim up negativity in the house.
  • Keep your shoes well organized and avoid stacking, to ease up the work; you can get shelves or cabinets as per the availability of space.

Even if you are not a Vastu believer, these tips will help you to give a more neat and disciplined look to your house. Keeping cleanliness is not only advised by Vastu but is essential for a healthy environment too. Cluttered shoes make your place look disorganized, giving an unpleasant feeling, and putting your shoe racks at the entrance or in the bedroom can give an irrupt look as these areas have limited space. Following the tips is not harmful to anyone, and may bequeath you some advantages.

Never Place Here:

To increase the positivity & energy inside your home, there are some particular places where placement of shoe racks should always be avoided. Take a look:

  • A shoe rack should never be placed on the entrance of the house as it is believed that the main door is where goddess "Lakshmi" resides. A rack on the entrance creates blockage and generates stress in the mind and blocks the money.
  • Never place the shoe racks in the bedroom.
  • Never keep a clutter of shoes in front of the main door.
  • Never place the shoe racks in the North, South-East, or East direction. The east section is enhanced to generate prosperity and positivity in a house. So try keeping this section as clean as possible and avoid keeping things like a broom, cleaning clothes, shoe racks, etc.
  • Never place a shoe rack near the place of worship. Maintain a suitable gap between the temple of the house and the shoe stand.

Thank you for the article. I need some clarity on the placement of shoe rack. East, North and South East direction to be avoided. So does it mean it shouldn't be kept against the east wall or shouldn't be facing east wall?
