Aligning a Kitchen’s Location and Design with Astrological Principles

That being the case, it’s important to synergize all physical elements of the kitchen. Doing so can help ensure that their joint functionalities will produce positive effects for every family member who relies on the efficiency of the kitchen space.

Astrological Tips to Consider in Improving the Energy Flowing Inside One’s Kutchen

The Location

Sinks, faucets or water filter in relation to running water and earthen pots for storing water, are best situated in the northeast location of the kitchen.

Ideally, kitchen appliances such as microwave oven, gas stove, gas cylinder, bread or oven toaster and rice cooker should be placed in the southeast corner of a kitchen.

Windows are essential in every kitchen. Placing an exhaust on the east wall will be effective in warding off the flow of negative energies finding their way inside the kitchen.

Kitchen Floor

According to texts about traditional Indian architecture (Vastu Shastra), which generally adhere to astrological principles, the best materials to use as flooring for kitchens are marble, ceramic tiles and mosaic. Such materials not only deflect negative energies, but for practical reasons, are sturdy enough to withstand heavy traffic and occasional rough treatment that kitchen floors receive from different members of a family.

Kitchen Colours

While many prefer to use subdued hues as main colours of the kitchen, lemon yellow, lime green and orange are also perfect colors for a kitchen.
