how to design your kitchen according to vastu shastra
Following the traditional Indian form of architecture, also known as Vastu Shastra, can potentially bring a nice vibe to your living space. One of the most important parts of the house is the kitchen. With the help of Vastu, you can transform your kitchen into a space that sends healthy vibes.
Speaking to Architectural Digest, Vastu expert Aashna Dhanak said that to ensure that your kitchen is infused with positive vibes, the first step you should take is to ensure that the elements of earth, sky, air, fire and water How are you in balance? Dhanak says that some areas in the kitchen should be changed or modified to increase the positive energy in your home.
There are some things to keep in mind while designing a kitchen according to Vastu:
The lord of fire is most influential in the south-east direction of the house, so the ideal location of the kitchen is in the south-east direction. Objects representing fire, such as gas stoves, cylinders, microwave ovens, toasters, and others, should be placed in the southeast part of the kitchen, Dhanak told AD. Vastu expert also said that one should face east to get good energy while cooking.
According to Dhanak, if due to some reason you are not able to make kitchen in the south-east direction, then choose the north-west direction. Make sure that the kitchen is never built in the North, North-East, or South-West directions of the house as it will ruin the relationship between the family members to a great extent.
Washbasins, cleaning areas, water pipes, kitchen drains, or any other water element should be inside the kitchen in the North or North East direction opposite to the fire elements.
Dhanak advises you to place the refrigerator in the South-West direction to help you overcome obstacles in life. This position will also ensure a peaceful kitchen environment.
Dhanak told AD that washbasins and cooking utensils including gas cylinders and ovens should not be placed on the same platform or next to each other as both fire and water are antagonistic elements. Such an arrangement can have a negative effect on the behavior of the individual.
