Vastu for Kitchen

Updated on June 13, 2016

Needless to say that a kitchen is like the fuel tank or power house of a home. This is the place where we prepare food for us which gives us all the health and energy needed for life. A Vastu compliant kitchen will transmit positive energies to the residents and will give auspicious results, while an ill placed kitchen will transmit negative energies to the residents and will give inauspicious results. Here are the Vastu principles which apply for the overall placement and arrangement of a kitchen. I hope this will give you an adequate insight into the subject however if you have any queries you can ask me through the comment box. I will answer them to the best of my knowledge and understanding of the subject.

Southeast, East and Northwest directions are considered auspicious for the placement of kitchen.

The element of Southeast direction is Fire. Kitchen is a place where there can be maximum creative utilization of Fire energy. This is why Southeast is considered to be the most auspicious direction for the placement of kitchen.

The ruling planet of East direction is Sun which is also a fiery planet. The radiations coming from the Sun kill the harmful micro-organisms and are good for health. Hence this direction is also auspicious for kitchen.

The element of Northwest direction is Air. As Air element helps ignite and maintain Fire it is considered a friend with Fire element. Hence this direction is also auspicious for Kitchen.

Heat generating kitchen equipment like microwaves, hot cases, hotplates, mixer grinders, oven etc, should be placed in the South-east direction of the kitchen. Cooking stove should be placed along the eastern wall of the kitchen or in the southeast corner. The cooking stove should be placed in such a way that while using it the cook faces the East direction.

All water arrangements should be placed in the north or the north-east. These directions are considered very auspicious for water objects. Avoid placing a refrigerator in the kitchen, as the elements of water and fire clash with each other.

Keep heavy and dry food items like grains, pulses and dry fruits in the southwest part of the kitchen. As southwest is the direction of Earth element, it well supports heavy and dry food items.

In the North and East sides of the kitchen Keep those food items which contain Water element in them like fruits, vegetables , sauce, jam, squash etc. You can further enhance this categorization on the basis of colours. Keep greenish items in the North side. Keep reddish items on the East side. Keep yellowish items in the Northeast. White items can be placed anywhere.

Acidic items, like Vinegar and spices should be placed in the Southeast direction. Acids and spices are manifestations of Fire element hence Southeast direction is appropriate for them as this is the direction of Fire element.

Keep edible oils in the west side of the kitchen. The ruling planet of west direction is Saturn which complies well with edible oils.

I hope you will consider this information while planning and arranging your kitchen. I wish you lead a prosperous, healthy and pleasant life. All the best.
