They say that the kitchen is the heart of the home. And we couldn’t agree more. Whether small or large, the kitchen is the hub of the home. It is where the meals are created – it fuels the body, mind and soul of our loved ones.

To increase this energy and achieve an atmosphere that is physically comfortable, emotionally soothing and intellectually vibrant; we have compiled some handy Vastu tips to enhance the positive effect of elements in your kitchen.
Kitchen Location: According to Vastu Shastra, fire prevails in the south-east direction. So ideally the kitchen should be located in the south-east part of your home, this area brings prosperity.
The stove: The stove should be placed in the south-east direction; it brings good health to family members.
Windows: Windows in north, east or north east should always be left open, to facilitate free positive flow of energy.
The door: The kitchen door should not be in any of the corners. The kitchen should not be placed under or above the prayer room, toilet or bedroom; it restricts mutual love and peace in the family.
Dining table: According to Vastu, the dining table should be placed in the north-west corner of the room. It is said to have a good effect on digestion.
Right place for electrical appliances: Avoid keeping electrical gadgets in the north east direction and prevent the inflow of negative energies into the home.
Sink: Remember that taps and sinks should not be very close to the cooking range as fire and water repel against each other.
Color Scheme for Kitchen: Color plays a vital role in enhancing mood and stimulating minds.

The floor and walls should be bright as darker colors indicate lack of hope, making you feel a little low.
