According to the Vastu Shashtra, the south-east corner is the abode of the Fire God. So the ideal location for kitchen should be the south-east corner of the house. The stove should be placed in such a way that the cook should be facing towards east while cooking. The second best option for the kitchen is north-west part of the home. Just make sure that the kitchen is not over or under the Pooja room or bathroom and it should not share a wall with bathroom or pooja room.

​2. The entry to healthy living

It is advised to have the entry door of the kitchen in the middle and not in any corner. The best direction to enter the kitchen is from the east, north and west. Just make sure that the kitchen should never face the main entrance of the house.

3. The water bodies

Sink, taps, RO, earthen pots or any vessels used to store water should be placed in the north-east or north direction of the kitchen away from the stove.

​4. Fire and water

Fire and water are opposite elements and hence it should be placed away from each other. Since the south-east direction is for the Lord of fire and kitchen stoves are placed in the south-east direction, the water elements like sink, taps, filters, pitcher, etc. should be placed in the north-east part of the kitchen.

​5. The refrigerator

Though it was not there in the ancient times, but now the refrigerator has become an indispensable part of our house. If you are keeping your refrigerator in the kitchen then place it in the south-east, south, west or north direction. If you are placing it in south-west direction then make sure that it is at least a foot away from the corner and walls. It is not advisable to place the refrigerator in the north-east direction, so avoid it.

​6. Welcoming freshness

According to Vastu shashtra, window is an important part of the kitchen as it brings in the positive energy and keeps the kitchen well ventilated. One large window should always be constructed in the eastern direction while the smaller windows or ventilators should be in the southern. The place for the exhaust fan should be in the east.

​7. Storing it right

The modular kitchen is there to make our kitchen comfortable and it creates sufficient storage space right in our kitchen. Make sure that the storage cabinets both floor and wall units are placed on the Southern and the western walls and not on the Northern and the Eastern walls.

​8. The electrical appliances

We cannot imagine a kitchen without modern kitchen appliances like oven, microwave, mixer-grinder, etc. We need a place to keep it in our kitchen. Construct an L-shaped platform near the south or south-eastern wall of the kitchen, next to the main platform and use it for the electrical appliances in the kitchen.

​9. The flooring
