Vastu For Kitchens

Vastu For Kitchen – Simple Vastu Shastra Tips for Kitchen



As per Vastu Shastra, Kitchen should be located in the South East, as this is the (Fire zone) and ruled by Venus, which is again a fiery planet. Kitchen in South East gives fame. Next best location for kitchen is North West (Air zone) as Air supports fire. Next is South, which is also good for Kitchen as it is also Fires direction. East is also acceptable for kitchen, but it is just acceptable. Designing inside has to be appropriate to get the favorable result. According to Vastu Shastra avoid Kitchen in West & South West of the house, Kitchen in South West increases expenses on Food  

The Entrance

Entry of the Kitchen should be either in East, West or North as per Vastu Shastra. In fact if Kitchen is placed in the correct direction/location then door would automatically fall at the right place. As we don’t suggest entrance to be in South, which would happen only if Kitchen is constructed in North East or North, which is not advised. The door of kitchen should not be in any of the corners, though this is not easy to follow due to rise in Apartment/Flat culture. However, if we could just have the inside layout as per Vastu we are good to go.


Gas Stove

Gas stove should be placed in the South East corner of the Kitchen 3 inches away from the wall. It should not be visible from the main door. If it is not possible to place it in South East, place it in East (for South East Kitchen) South is also acceptable if can’t put our Gas in South East or East of the Kitchen in South East.

Drinking Water & RO

North East is the direction for underground Water as per Vastu Shastra. Place Drinking water or RO in the North Eastern area of the Kitchen. North can also be used if we don’t have the possibility to hang/keep it in North East. At any cost avoid RO & Drinking water in the South, South East as they belong to Fire (Fame) and putting water will not only bring loss of Fame but also Money (Water represents money)


Cook’s Direction

Vastu suggests Cook should face East while cooking, Gas Stove & other cooking material should be placed in a way that it facilitates cooking while facing East. Practically, every Kitchen would not permit East facing cooking, the cook can also face South while cooking as this is also the direction of South. Avoid West direction, it reduces the quality of cooking & food. North is a strict NO.


Gas Cylinder

Gas Cylinders should be placed in South East or South (avoid East & North East strict No) Spare cylinders Full/Empty should be placed in the South West, if South West is not possible then place them in West and South.



Storage Almirah/Racks should be constructed on the Southern & Western wall as per Vastu this area should remain heavy. All the essential commodities like containers of pulses, grains, spices etc should be kept in South or West of the Kitchen.


Electrical Equipment

Microwave, Electric Stoves should be placed in the South East or South. No electric equipment (fire) in North East (Water) Geyser should be placed in South East.



Refrigerator should be placed in North West or South East. North West is better as it is Air zone and keeps things fresh. It can also be placed in West or South, it is always better if Refrigerator opens to East or North. Never keep Refrigerator or any heavy Almirah/cupboard in North East of Kitchen.

COMING NEXT : Vastu friendly Layouts for the Kitchens in North West, East and South direction.



Sink (water) is best suited in North East, however, it should be at a distance (minimum 3-4 feet) away from the Gas Stove (fire). Fire & Water are opposite elements and should be kept at a distance to improve harmony among housemates. In case Sink & Gas Stove are at a close proximity put a small earthen pot in between. Sink can be placed at North West also and if unavoidable we can keep it in East (at a distance from Gas Stove) or West also. South, South East & South West should be avoided for Sink.


Kitchen Slab

Kitchen slab should be Red if the kitchen is located in South East as South East is fire zone and Red represents Fire element. And, it should be green if it is placed in North West, North West is air element and it’s safe to use Green color in North West (as per Feng Shui) Don’t use Black Slab in Kitchen, black represents water and Kitchen is Fire. Water (money) & Fire if kept together may lead to loss of money.



Ceramic tiles, mosaic, marble are good choices for kitchen flooring. Ceramic tile flooring is recommended to accommodate Indian conditions as it is stain-free, dust-free and scratch resistant.


Color Scheme

Kitchen is Fire element, so we should use warm color in floor and walls like Yellow, Orange, Rose, or Red. Avoid Black color in Kitchen.


Ventilation (Windows & Exhaust)

East is the best direction for Window in a Kitchen. Exhaust should be installed at South East or North West of the Kitchen.


Dinning in Kitchen

Dinning in Kitchen should be avoided to maintain the sanctity of the Kitchen. One should face East or North while taking food for better digestion.
