Will I have a problem in having tripple NAT?

This is my scenario, until now I have no problem at all, but I want to consider your opinion. Maybe there´s something I can do to make this better.

In my house, I want some devices to connect to my internet normally and some devices to connect through a VPN, so what I did was this.

Internet --> Router ( --> Home network
                     Router ( --> Dlink Router (WAN

Here, the DlinkRouter now has double NAT in the network
From here, I connected another router:
Dlink Router (WAN --> PPTP Router(WAN DCHP disable) This router PPTP is connected to my home network switch, obviously without DCHP server, so, when I want a device to use the PPTP VPN gatway, I just state in the gateway to use instead of my Router

Actually this works, so all my home network is behind only one NAT, the devices I want to use the VPN will go through a triple NAT, but everything works....

Will this cause a problem in my home network???

    there wont be any problem unless you want to access any device under NAT from the previous unNAT network.

    i mean if your devices are in the same network it will be easier to access and you ping to it and through it.

    if the devices are inside the NAT the devices inside the NAT can ping other devices in and out. But the out devices cannot ping the devices inside the NAT.
