In an earlier era, daughters were regarded as guests in their father’s homes and were placed in the North-West bedroom so that they could marry and move away. This does not have relevance in the modern society.

Never offer the guest your own bedroom since the room and especially the bed and bedsheets etc, are filled with your aura.

Place heavy cupboards in the South and South-West. Avoid doors in the South-West and South-East directions.
