Vaastu means the dwelling of humans & Gods.

Vaastu shastra is an ancient science which helps one to get the natural benefits freely offered by the five basic elements of the universe in which we all live. These basic elements are Akash (SKY), Prithvi (EARTH), Paani (WATER), Agni (FIRE), and Vayu (WIND).

Vaastu Shastra can be applied by keeping in harmony with these basic five elements of nature.

Vaastu Shastra is an edifice science that was developed by our learned people thousands of years ago.

It happens many times that construction has already been done against the principles of Vaastu. In such cases, it is advisable to consult a Vaastu expert for correction of Vaastu. The application of Vaastu principles are based on becoming one with nature.

Kitchen is an important part of the house because food is prepared and cooked in kitchen. If your kitchen vaastu is not right then you may see a decrease in health of family members, sudden expenses on medical treatment of yourself and other members or a decrease in overall financial income of the house. Vaastu Shastra has laid down many rules for enhancing the aura of kitchen considering the right direction of kitchen, placement of windows and doors, placement of electronic equipments, cylinder, sink, microwave, refrigerator etc

I am giving you some of the important tips of Vaastu for your kitchen:

Vaastu Shastra principles show that the lord of Agni (Fire) prevails in South-east direction. So ideally the kitchen should be located in south-east of the home. The second best option is North-west part of the home. The stove should be placed in south-east direction of the kitchen so that the cook may face east direction while cooking. Most dangerous kitchen is the one placed in North direction; as North is Lord Kubera (the God of Wealth) direction, having kitchen in North will increase expenditure of family beyond expectations and control.

Entry door of kitchen should be in the East, North or West. The door of kitchen should not be in any of the corners.

The cooking gas is almost as essential as the placement of the kitchen in the house. Therefore, it too should be in the south-east direction. This is because when a person cooks food they should be facing to the east only.

Sink (wash basin) should be in north-east corner as far as possible. It is important to note that sinks and taps in the kitchen indicate flowing water. They should be placed in the north-east direction and away from the cooking stove. This is because fire and water are opposite elements and they repel each other otherwise they would lead to unnecessary expenses especially on medical treatment in your house.

If there is a dining table in the kitchen, it should be placed in the North-West or the West side.

Gas Cylinder should be kept in south-east. Empty Cylinder should be kept in south-west.

The direction of refrigerator should be in south-east, south, west or north direction. Refrigerator should not be in north-east direction. If the refrigerator is in south-west direction, it should be a feet away from corner otherwise it always gets out of order.

Heaters, conventional ovens, micro-waves ovens should be placed in south-east or south side of the kitchen; never in north-east portion.

Windows are very important in kitchen and Vaastu Shashtra also recognizes it and provides that one or two windows in the kitchen are a must. An air hole or an exhaust is a must and it should be placed in the east in the kitchen. Windows whether they are large or small should be placed in the east while if there are ventilators, it should be placed in the southern direction.

The storage racks should be made on southern or western wall Essential commodities like boxes of grain, spices, pulses, etc. should be in south or west direction. The water source including pitcher, water filter, etc. may be kept in north-east.

Drinking water vessels, be it an earthen pot, filter, RO, pitcher etc. these should be placed in the north-east side.

Ceramic tiles, mosaic, marble are good choices for kitchen flooring. Ceramic tile flooring is recommended to accommodate Indian conditions as it is stain-free, dust-free and scratch resistant.

As far as color is concerned, I would advise you to avoid black colour in the kitchen and opt for vibrant colours such as yellow, rose, chocolate brown, green, orange or red.

You should ensure that your kitchen does not share a wall with the toilet or bathroom. Plus in multi storey homes it is important to ensure that the kitchen is never made below a bathroom or toilet.

The kitchen at night should be well cleaned and used utensils should be washed before sleeping.

There are many rules of Vaastu for kitchen but I have discussed with you the most important one. These rules are based on pure science and following them will keep you and your family healthy, wealthy and peaceful. You can book specific Vaastu visit or consultation by visiting our website.
