Well, Vastu Shastra even has some rules for the construction of bathroom and toilet also. It is considered healthy for the body to construct a bathroom according to the principles of Vastu Shastra. Many people feel that if they are going to spend money on a bathroom, then why not spend it in a right manner and get a bathroom that encourages health to the body. Bathroom and toilets are considered one of the major source of negative energies that is why people prefer constructing them according to Vastu Shastra.
