According Vastu, Ganesh idols made of different materials needs to be treated differently. The most important thing is the direction in which you should and should not place these Ganesh idols.
Silver Ganesha – A silver Ganesh idol is supposed to bring fame and publicity for you. If you have any silver Ganesh idol in your collection, place it in the Southeast, West or Northwest direction. According to vastu, never place these silver idols in South or Southwest direction.
Copper Ganesha– Installing copper Ganesh idol in home is believed to be good for those who desire descendants. Keep these copper Ganesh idols in East or South direction. Never keep these idols in Southwest and Northwest directions.
Wood Ganesha– Wooden Ganesh idols, including those made of sandalwood, has many benefits. We worship these idols for good health, long life and success. So keep the wooden Ganesh idol in the North, northeast or east directions. Do not keep these idols in the southeast direction.
Clay Ganesha– Clay Ganesh idol also has multiple benefits. Worshiping these clay idols ensures you success, good health and helps you in removing obstacles. However, never keep these clay idols in the west or north direction. You are supposed to keep them at southwest direction.
Brass Ganesha– Ganesh idols made of brass brings prosperity and joy to your house. These brass Ganesh idols are supposed to be placed at east, south or west directions. At the same time, never keep these idols in northeast or northwest directions.

Just follow the old saying-An Apple a Day keeps the Doctor Away
Keep the Vaastu Purush Healthy …
Any plot of land or a built up premises is animated by Vaastu Purush lying face down with its head in the northeast, stomach in the middle part and feet in the southwest as shown in the above sketch.
Keep the north east cool by keeping it open, clean and low. You can build an underground water storage tank in this part. Avoid making it hot by constructing a kitchen or keeping ant electrical or fire related equipment or machinery in this area.
Keep the stomach area or the middle part (Brahmsathan) clean and clutter-free. Never ever place heavy items here. Don’t you avoid eating heavy food for better health? So use the same logic here. In the morning when you are empty stomach you feel hale and hearty so try keeping this area of your premise empty if possible or at least free of undesired clutter.
And last but not least keep the southwest warm or in other words avoid underground water tank. Also keep the southwest boundary walls thick and high and leave no opening there in order to save energies from leaking out from there or allowing entry of negative energies from that direction. Don’t you wear socks to keep feet warm?
I have tried it and as per my advice many others have benefited, so can you!
Apply this Rule to Each Room …
Not just to the whole premises you should apply this golden rule to each and every room of your house. Keep water pots in northeast and electric room heater (in winter) in the southeast corner facing southwest.
And keep the middle of each room free of undesired clutter. If possible keep a bowl of water and float some fresh rose petals in it in the middle area of the room or keep about 250 grams of aniseed in a white cloth.
