A clean, spacious, and tidy kitchen is a symbol of health and prosperity. Crafting a nurturing, joyful, organized, and inspiring cooking zone almost makes it the heart of the home.

Where to place the stove is important to maintain the intense fire energy. Since the stove represents the element of fire, it is best to place it in a location that is compatible with the energy of the fire. Be sure to consult the map to locate fire energy.

Do and Don’t about Kitchen Vastu

Cluttered Sink

Do not clutter your sink area (water sink). Never pill up the sink. It should be sparkling and rather unblocked. Always keep it clean to enhance the cooling experience and bring high vibrational frequency. Your sink should shine with cleanness.

Dirty dishes can make you sick. Putting the dish in the sink basically sets up a living scientific experiment in which all kinds of bacteria grow.


Your dirty dishes block the positive flow of water in your kitchen. Your kitchen’s water flow is analogous to your energy’s (health, vitality, money, etc.) flow. According to a study, negative forces like “entities” or spirits are attracted to these sorts of messes and are neglected… So please clear them up!

Stove Burners

All knobs and burners on the stove or oven should be functional. The health of the lady will be affected if anything is wrong with the stove or oven. Everything on the stove should be working properly.

When fire energy is working almost in your favor, fire flows through all burners smoothly. Non-working or unused burners also mean neglected techniques and may not be able to take advantage of new opportunities in life.

Trash bin

When it comes to kitchen clutter, storing your waste bin out in the open is not only unpleasant but also detracts from the nourishment of the room. If you want to keep your kitchen nourishing, keep your waste bin hidden away. kitchen-trash-bin-vastu

A bad Vastu may be created if the trash can is placed in the northeastern zone of the kitchen. The northeast corner of every room is the auspicious zone. You can put the trash in the other remaining directions or use built-in trash cabinets to keep it hidden. Perhaps always use a trash can with a lid.

Cooking under the overhead beam

Do not place the stove under the overhead beam. The stove is a symbol of wealth, and hence it should not have any heavy energy pressure from the top.

People with sensitive nervous systems can be negatively impacted by spending too much time cooking underneath beams

The joy of cooking at home

Cook frequently at home rather than with outside food. According to research at Cambridge, “your longevity increases when you cook at home more frequently.”

No medicine in the Kitchen

Do not keep medicines in the kitchen.  Otherwise, it may cause an increase in the dose of medicines year after year. Medicine means that there is an illness or other condition that needs to be treated, so keep medicines out of the kitchen.

Kitchen Shelves- No old papers

It is not advisable to use old newspapers as shelves for placing crockery and jars, as nobody wants to read outdated news. Therefore, it is better to let go of the old and create space for new energy to circulate freely.

Chipped plats- No No in the kitchen

It is disrespectful to eat from the chipped plates. Such broken crockery does not show any respect for your meal and it attracts stagnant energy. When the dishes, utensils, or cooking devices are chipped or no longer function, replace them.

When you eat on cracked plates, you’ll subconsciously welcome troubles and failures into your life.

Nourishing Shades

Colors like lemon yellow, pistachio green, also orange are nourishing for the cooking zone. Since the kitchen is represented by an element of fire, red and orange can create an energetic imbalance in the room and should be avoided. Plates, glasses, and cutlery do not have to be new, but well-maintained ones shed good light and positivity on guests.

Plants in Kitchen

Healing herbs are closely tied to the kitchen since cooking occurs there. Including fresh healing energy into the space as well as seasoning the food is just one of the many reasons why herbs should be cultivated in the kitchen. Basil, lemongrass, and mint are just a few of the most popular herbs. You can also create healthy meals using herbs to attract positive energy.

 mint-plant-kitchen-vastuAvoid thorny leaves and thorny plants to minimize unfavorable energy and accidents. Thorny plants give rise to tensions in the environment and should be avoided at any cost.

If you like fresh flowers, you can put them in a vase to add energy to your room.

Kitchen Storage

Clear out and discard old and date expired items as they can be a disturbing element. Anything that is spoiled or past its expiration date can accumulate stagnant energy. 

Try adding a healthier and more organic diet, especially fresh fruits and vegetables.

Art for the inspiration

An art you choose should inspire a healthy appetite and encourage family food enjoyment by painting pictures of people planting or harvesting food or pictures of people eating together. Abstract art featuring fruit or other healthy eating images is also a great option.

Fire it daily

It is also important to use the stove daily. Even boiling water on the stove daily when you are not cooking will help rejuvenate and activate your wealth as well as your career.

Planning a well-organized and harmonious kitchen arrangement means investing in your family’s fitness and happiness.
