Have you ever considered which color to use when painting the walls of your kitchen? Did you know the ideal location of kitchen in your home? Have you ever given a thought about the distance of sink from the gas stove?
Well, if you haven’t, now is the time! Since kitchen is one of the most important parts of the house ensuring overall health and happiness, Buildzar brings to you the Top 5 Kitchen Vastu Tips to take note of when designing the kitchen.
Ideal Location: The location of the kitchen is of utmost importance. The South-east corner of the house is supposed to be the best place for constructing the kitchen as the South-east direction is governed by the element Fire. If not, the next best option is the North-west side.
Placement of Stove: Similarly, the gas or stove should be placed in the South-east direction in a way that the person who is cooking stands facing the east. It ensures the general health and well-being of the inhabitants according to Vastu.
Wall-to-Wall: Every Vastu expert you will ever speak to will be of the opinion that the kitchen should not be located under or above the puja room, bathroom or toilets. It should not even share a wall with the bathroom or toilet. Brings bad luck.
The Sink: Yes, the sink. Moving and shifting into various flats when staying as a bachelor, it never even occurred to me that the sink could play any role in our lives. But Vastu suggests that the sink should be constructed in the North-east corner at the maximum distance from the gas stove. Also, the two should not be placed in a straight line as it tends to bring friction amidst family members.
Colours: Black is a strict no-no. The best colours to be used on the floor and walls of the kitchen as per Vastu are white, yellow, rose pink, orange and chocolate. These colours ensure happiness and positivity.
