The basic premise of Vastu Shastra is the balance of the five elements (earth, water, sky, fire, air), which are essential for living a happy and prosperous life, due to the imbalance in them, it is natural to produce negative effects. Failure to follow these Vaastu rules will not only affect a person's health but also adversely affect his economic and social aspects. To get good health, just having delicious and nutritious food is not enough. For the good health of the family members and the well-being of their lives, it is important that the kitchen in your house is also Vastu. The kitchen is considered an important part of the house. It is a misconception among us that we think of giving less space to the kitchen while constructing a house. While it is very important to have an open environment, as much equipment and materials are in the kitchen like in no other place.
Is the kitchen in the right direction?
According to Vastu, the kitchen should be constructed in the igneous angle (south-east) towards the direction of fire in the house. The igneous direction is considered suitable for the kitchen due to the Rajas property of Agni. If it is not possible to make it in this direction, then make it only in the northwest part because Rajas energy has 100% effect in the south-east (igneous) and north-west (vyavya) angles. Both these areas are considered best for activities like cooking, eating, and conversation. Always make kitchen doors in east, north, or north-east direction.
Such should be the internal arrangement of the kitchen
If the kitchen in your house is not made in the direction of Vastu and not in any direction, then in this way, you can remove Vastu defects by breaking the internal arrangement of the kitchen according to Vastu without breaking.
In the kitchen, the stove should be kept at an igneous angle and it is also necessary for the cook to face towards the east, this increases the wealth and good health.
For storing potable water and washing hands, the tap should be in the northeast.
The northwest direction is considered auspicious for the kitchen sink ie the direction of washing utensils.
Toaster, geyser, or microwave, the oven will be beneficial for you at an igneous angle.
It is considered auspicious to keep mixers, flour mills, juicers, etc. in the south near the igneous angle.
If the refrigerator is to be kept in the kitchen, keep it in the south or west direction, should not be kept at the northeast or northwest angle.
It is possible to keep cans of spices, utensils, rice, lentils, flour, etc. in the south or south-west.
Keep the empty cylinder at the southwest angle and keep the cylinder used in the south direction.
According to Vastu, having the color of the kitchen walls lightly creamy with cream color will increase auspiciousness. Black and blue colors should be avoided in the kitchen. Vastu Shastra believes that the use of black color induces negative energy in the kitchen and increases the possibility of economic loss in the house.
If there is already black-colored stone in your house, then you can make a swastika in the kitchen to avoid its side effects, this will make the atmosphere there positive.
