Main Rules for the Stair Case 18
The staircase of the house should be made according to the rules of vastu. The ideal direction for the staircase is the main West, main South or Southwest (Nairritya). Best position is Nairritya which is very auspicious because this corner of the house should be tall and heavy. According to another view the staircase should be in Southwest or Western vayavya, away from the Northern or Eastern wall.
Staircase should not be made in Ishan. It harms wealth and profession and the owner gets loaded with debt. Due to shortage of space if staircase is made in Agneya or in Northern Vayavya then it becomes harmful for the health of the children. If it is absolutely necessary to make stairs in these areas then they should be light weight and they should move from East to West and from North to South (climbing up). One should never make stairs climbing up Northwards and climbing down Southwards. This harms the prosperity, peace and happiness of the house. In an old house if there is a staircase in Northeast then to remove its vastu dosha a room should be constructed in Southwest.
Number of Steps
Steps should always be in odd numbers. The number should be such that if it is divided by 3 the remainder should be 2. i.e. 5, 11, 17, 23, 29 etc. There should be strong doors at the beginning and the end of the stairs. The upper door should be 1/12 smaller than the lower door. In other words, the lower door should be larger. While climbing, the stairs should turn in right direction.
