Following the traditional Indian form of architecture, also known as Vastu Shastra, can potentially bring a good atmosphere to your living space. One of the most crucial parts of a home is the kitchen. With some help from Vastu, you can transform your kitchen into a place that radiates healthy vibes.
Speaking to Architectural Digest, Vastu expert Ashna Ddhannak stated that one of the first steps you should take to ensure that your kitchen is shrouded in positive vibes is to see how the elements of earth, air, air, fire and water balance. Ddhannak says you should change or adjust certain areas in the kitchen to increase the positive energy in your home.
Here are some things to keep in mind when designing a kitchen according to Vastu:
The Lord of Fire is most effective in the southeast direction of a home, hence the ideal placement of the kitchen is in the southeast direction. Objects that represent fire, such as gas stoves, cylinders, microwaves, toasters and others, should be placed in the southeastern part of the kitchen, Ddhannak told the AD. The Vastu expert also said that to get good energy while cooking, a person should look east.
According to Ddhannak, if for some reason you are unable to build a kitchen in the southeast direction, choose the northwest direction. Make sure that the kitchen is never built in the north, northeast, or southwest direction of the house, as this will drastically ruin relationships between family members.
The sinks, cleaning room, water pipes, kitchen drains, or any other water element must be located in the kitchen to the north or northeast, opposite the fire elements.
Ddhannak recommends placing the refrigerator in the southwest direction to help you overcome obstacles in life. This positioning also ensures a calm kitchen environment.
Ddhannak told the AD that the sinks and cooking utensils, including the gas cylinder and oven, should not be placed on the same platform or side by side, as both fire and water are opposite elements. Such an arrangement can have a negative effect on one’s behavior.
