A Kitchen can be called as the part of the house that provides energy to the household. Carefully choosing the colours, appliances, utensils, etc., according to these kitchen vastu tips will amplify its positivity. The health and prosperity of the family members depend on the kitchen which is why it is important to attract positive energy and drive away all forms of negative energy. The doors, windows, gadgets, refrigerator, gas stove and even the sink should be placed in accordance with Vastu which will ensure that good energy prevails.
Here is a brief guide on how you can create a Vastu friendly kitchen while maintaining the decor of the house.
1. Kitchen wall colours
Opt for vibrant colours like yellow, pink, chocolate brown, red, green or orange to paint the walls of the kitchen. Avoid painting your kitchen black. Black and Brown are not the ideal kitchen paint colours.
2.Kitchen direction as per vastu to place the gas stove
The south-east corner of the kitchen is the perfect spot to place the gas stove. Agni is the Fire Lord, will support the fire element in the kitchen. Always place the gas stove towards the east, so that you can cook facing towards the
east direction. The person who cooks the food should not face towards the west, which can lead to serious health disorders. The gas stove should never be placed in the south direction, as it will lead to major financial issues. Kitchen Vastu says that there should
never be a closet or shelf right above the gas stove as this is the place for the chimney.
Refrigerators should be placed in west, south, north or southeast directions. Never place your refrigerator in the northeast direction. Keep it a foot away from the corner if a suitable position has been found in the southwest direction.
4.Exhaust Fans and Windows
Vastu recommends that the kitchen should have at least one or two windows. They can be large or small but ideally should be placed in the southeast direction of the kitchen.
The ventilators should always be in the southwest direction. Windows should open towards the outside. A good ventilated kitchen favours Vastu principles in a better way.
Creating storage space in the kitchen is necessary. It should blend with the design of the kitchen. Organized storage space with cabinets & containers to store food grains,
spices and utensils are some of the essential factors in the kitchen as per Vastu. The cabinets should be in the southern and western walls of the kitchen. Avoid using the north and east walls for this purpose.
Wash basins, washing machine, pipes, and the drain should be in the northern or northeast direction of the house. An overhead tank should never be placed in the same
direction and should ideally be placed in the western part. If a balance is maintained between the fire and water elements, there will be a manifestation of wealth and health, as per Kitchen Vastu.
A modern kitchen is incomplete without modern appliances like Ovens, Grinders, Heaters, etc. Since these appliances are associated with the fire elements related to
light and fire, they should be placed either in the south or southeast direction. Avoid the northeast direction of the kitchen.
Do's and Dont's in the kitchen as per Vastu Shastra
A clean, spacious, and clutter-free kitchen is a symbol of health and prosperity. A kitchen can become the heart of the home if a joyful and organized cooking zone can be created by using the elements of Kitchen Vastu sensibly.
