Vastu Tips for L-shaped Modular Kitchen

To ensure your L-shaped modular kitchen is enveloped with positivity, it should be designed as per the principles of Vastu Shastra.

Kitchen sinks and drains should be in the northeast direction. According to Vastu Shastra, the washbasins and cooking range should not be parallel or on the same platform. This is because water and fire are opposite elements and they repel each other.

/southEast.svg

The ideal placement of the kitchen is in the south-east direction. All the cooking appliances that represent fire the, including the gas stove, cylinders, microwaves, or oven should be placed in the southeast part of the kitchen.

/southWest.svg

The refrigerator should be positioned in the south-west direction to ensure a peaceful kitchen environment. Storage of grains, crockery and other stock should be in this direction of the kitchen as it invites good luck and prosperity

/northWest.svg

As per Vastu, the northwest direction is suitable for west or north-facing homes, so that you look towards the north while cooking. If there is a dining table in the kitchen, it should be placed in this direction.

/east.svg

Windows and exhaust should be placed in the east direction to let out all the negative energy. The entrance or the door to your kitchen according to Vastu should be in the east direction.

/south.svg

The exhaust fans can be installed in the southern direction of the kitchen. Storage cupboards should be fitted on the southern walls of the kitchen
