Kitchen is the source of our day-long energy. Every single appliance is important in your kitchen and contributes to some amount of energy if placed according to Vastu principles. To ensure that positivity prevails in your kitchen, AGL has made a series of blog on Vastu for home plan.

This blog covers a very integral part of our home – the kitchen.

Why it is important to consider Vastu for Kitchen?

Feng Shui or Vastu Shastra is not merely a science behind the construction, but rather promotes a blissful living. Since the kitchen is associated with prosperity and health of the family , basic Vastu of home is considered beneficial for the inhabitants.

Here’s a suggestion by AGL tiles on what you need to do:

1. Kitchen direction as per Vastu

The Lord of Fire prevails in the southeast direction of the home, according to Vastu Shastra. This makes it an ideal placement of the kitchen at your home. If you can't do that for some reason, then the northwest direction will work.

2. Kitchen design based on Vastu

  • •  Water sink: Construct it in the north-east with maximum distance from the gas stove
  • •  Water storage: Provision of water should be made in the north-east of the kitchen.
  • •  Cupboards: All the furniture elements should be kept at the distance of 3km from the wall
  • •  Cylinder/Geyser:Place it in the southeast corner
  • •  Food grains: Their storage should be on southern or western place
  • •  Fridge: It should be placed on the southwest corner of the kitchen
  • •  Dish-washer: Install it in a northwest direction
  • •  Exhaust Fan: South wall or northwest corner
  • •  Electrical equipment: Equipment like microwave, oven, refrigerator, etc. should be placed in southwest direction

3. Vastu colours for the kitchen

The kitchen must have a slight hint of red color tinge (A stripe or a strip will also do). If you do not want to inculcate on wall tiles then get a red dinner set. The colors that will suit the best for kitchen as per Vastu are white, silver, yellow, orange, rose, light chocolate, etc. Again, avoid using colors that are dark.
