The COVID-19 pandemic has made us all realise the importance of the kitchen, given how often house members frequented the area, passing their time either snacking on something or learning new recipes in the lockdown, extending all age groups. Thus it won’t be wrong to say that the kitchenette is one of the most active areas of the house, constantly functioning via cooking, heating, baking, or freezing, courtesy of human’s growing demands and preferences. 

Gone are the days when cooking was a skill only a few knew, with the Millennials and Gen Z today aspiring to live independently and learning the necessary life skills such as cooking, cleaning, and managing their finances. Hence, over the years, there have been many changes in the structure, architecture, and design of kitchens, be it the cutlery, cabinets, gas station, electronic appliances, ventilation systems and lighting.    

With the modern generation keeping the cookhouse as one of its priorities while selecting a home, keeping the section compliant with kitchen Vastu is necessary.

Nonetheless, let’s have a look at some of the tips below. 

1. Direction as per kitchen Vastu

Adhering to the belief that the lord of fire, Agni, prevails in the home's southeast direction, the kitchen's location should be southeast. While this is the ideal location for your cookhouse, you can have the northwest as a backup plan but steer away from the north, west, and northeast.  

2. Size as per kitchen Vastu

The kitchen shouldn’t be too small, with a minimum of 80 sq. ft or more area. The study of Vastu uses five elements in its research: earth, sky, air, fire, and water, with Agni Devta associated with the sun, all sources of fire in the kitchenette, such as the gas system, cylinder, matches and agarbatti should be facing the south-east direction.  

3. Kitchen Vastu for ventilation

We all know that lack of ventilation could be hazardous to human health, making the availability of windows, exhaust systems, and chimneys a must. However, Vastu experts suggest that they be in the east direction. 

4. Placing the essential kitchen items as per Vastu 

  • Gas cylinder: southeast
  • Cooking gas: southeast corner
  • Refrigerator: southeast, south, north, or west
  • Appliances (heaters, ovens, and microwaves): southeast or south
  • Storage rack: western or southern wall
  • Drinking water: northeast

5. Kitchen layout as per Vastu

The kitchen should be facing the southeast direction, given the presence of the fire (Agni) element. The west zone is another option for open kitchens as it promotes good health. Keep in mind to avoid the north zone when building your cook house.

6. Kitchen entrance as per Vastu

The entrance is one of the crucial aspects to consider when speaking of kitchen Vastu. Experts suggest that the entry or door to your kitchenette be east, north, or west and not be any corner of the house. 

7. Colour of the kitchen

Vastu experts suggest using bright colours such as green, orange, and red while warning us against using black as it denotes ill fate. Nonetheless, the no.1 choice remains white as it provides a feeling of freshness and calmness. 

8. Storage as per kitchen Vastu 

Storage forms a vital kitchen unit as a place to keep cutlery, utensils, tablecloths, and other kitchen appliances. You should construct your storage facilities facing the southern or western direction if given by choice.

9. Placement of sinks and tanks as per Vastu

Sources of water, sinks and tanks should be facing the northeast direction. Another necessary guideline to follow in this case would be a safe distance between the gas stove and sink, as water and fire are opposite elements.

10. Cleanliness and Organization

The kitchen should be kept clean and well-organized to maintain positive energy flow. Avoid clutter and mess in the kitchen, as it can create negative energy and affect the health and well-being of the family.

11. Ventilation

Good ventilation is essential in the kitchen, as it helps to remove stale air and foul odours. Ensure that the kitchen has windows and exhaust fans to maintain fresh air flow.


Following Vastu tips for the kitchen can bring happiness and prosperity to the household. It is believed that the kitchen is the heart of the home and is a place where positive energy is generated, which nourishes the entire family. The kitchen's placement, the cooking stove's direction, and the colour of the walls can all affect the energy flow in the kitchen. By following Vastu principles, you can create a positive and harmonious environment in your kitchen, which can help improve your health, wealth, and overall well-being.
