Vastu Shastra For Kitchen, placement of stove, sink and number of burners:
Vastu Shastra for Kitchen | Hearth | Stove : Placing of kitchen (Hearth, Oven, cuisine, cooking room, culinary, cookery area) forms an important factor in Vastu. Kitchen should always be at South East corner of the house or atleast to the North West corner of the house as a second best suitable place. Avoid placing the kitchen at the North East corner of the house which may lead to lost of unrest, quarrels, misunderstanding between the members of the house, unnecessary expenditure,(matter is from www.subhavaastu.com) Worries and tensions. It is also better to avoid kitchen at Southwest side. Otherwise, it is also likely to cause many difficulties and worries to the owner. To get the best out of Vaastu, it is always advisable to consult a Vaastu Expert before placing the kitchen or planning for the kitchen. Whichever direction the site might face, it is best to have the kitchen in the Southeast. (matter is from www.subhavaastu.com) The cooking stove should be placed in the Southeast and it should be lit facing the East. By doing so, the house owner’s health and peace of mind increases. Give some importance to the kitchen in house construction, better to place an exhaust fan compulsory at kitchen. If your kitchen is having wide range of windows or heavy air flow, then exhaust fan may not be required. Sink also better to fitted towards Northeast corner of the kitchen. Several visitors raising so many questions on this sink. Some of the vaastu consultants says that if the sink has came towards any other direction except Northeast corner. In some rich houses there are gourmet, a fine connoisseur of good food and well drink, residents pleasure with epicure.
At no cost should the stove be lit facing the South or North. In a South facing house, it might be difficult to have the kitchen in the Southeast hence the kitchen maybe set up in the Northwest room. In a Northwest kitchen, the stove has to be placed in the South-East, facing the West and the person lighting it should always face the East. In North-West kitchen, (matter is from www.subhavaastu.com) the stove can be placed in the North-West in West, only when it is inevitable. By doing so, the stove faces the East and the person lighting the stove faces the West. As a result, the guests coming to the house increase and the women have to frequently light up the stove more often for coffee and other refreshments for the guests.
At no cost should the kitchen be situated in the Northeast or in East or at North and it is very bad if already done so. If done so, the house hold money gets spent fast, there are always tensions and quarrels going on and any kind of accident may befall the people of the house hold. It is not that the kitchen should not be set up in the South, West or South-West rooms. If already done (matter is from www.subhavaastu.com) so try to shift it to the South-East room. If unavoidable, then the stove has to be placed in the south-East in East, facing the West and the stove should be lit facing the East. People newly constructing houses should see that the kitchen should not be set up in the South-West, West or South rooms, as they make good bedroom for the house owner and his children to sleep in. Some body says that "in a kitchen the Eastern slab should not touch the Eastern wall", but its not easy to follow this principle, because the platform towards Southeast including the East may not touch the Eastern wall then the dust or used items, food particles may fall into that gap and it creates lots of double work and bad odor or sensation. The plat form may not be solid one, it should have space to provide to kept household kitchen utensils including Gas calendar.
Attics should not be put up to store articles in the East and North. In a kitchen, the storage shelves and attics should be in the south and West. (matter is from www.subhavaastu.com) The kitchen should have its heavier articles placed in the South and West like the fridge, grinding machine, heavy vessels, and water storage drums.The slab is put up in the East, away from the Eastern wall, by a gap of 1Inch care should be taken that the slab should not be reaching the Northeast. The shelves, slabs and attics are in the South and West. The stove is in the Southeast-east.
Placement of Kitchen :
In previous days our elders says that we have to maintain only one stove, on those days they are using only firewood burning for food making. On those days they are very cautious on every part of life, they planned to construct the kitchen at outside the house, in many villages still villagers require to construct the kitchen outside only. We may observe the kitchen at outside of the house still in many villages. What is it mean, those days our elders don’t have fire fighting engines, fire fighters etc. So for each and every part they are taking it as a serious thing and planning for strict proof of health and safety purposes. Now a days we are not using the firewood for cooking the food, we are modern people with all variety of deceases and we plan every thing in western country styles. We are using only gas stoves, that to the stove is compulsory stable stand at on open dais at kitchen. Our elders are so gentlemen and more cautious on our security. Kitchen means fire, those days they are using the firewood for cooking and the top is also made with bamboo’s , there is a right possibility of fire of the house, so they planned to through it out from the house, that is the main reason our elders are put the kitchen out of our homes. Now a days there is no such accidents.
In the above image, who requires to construct the kitchen at outside then they will construct the kitchen like this way. But they has to provide some space towards South wall. The distance between main house and kitchen should be less than the distance between the kitchen and the East wall. Please observe the below image for more understanding of the construction type of outer kitchen. (Generally villagers do construct like this types). Now a days very few Villa owners also planned to construct Kitchen at outside only, but its very less in their number. Still villagers requires to construct kitchen towards outside only. Recently we were gone through with the same in a village in Karnataka.
In the above image please observe the arrow mark it shows that the gap in between the south compound wall and the kitchen.
Placement of Kitchen in the house :
Northwest Kitchen :
Southwest Kitchen :
Northeast Kitchen :
How many burners for the stove in Kitchen :
Many residents asking about how many burners for the stove at Kitchen
Regarding Burners in the kitchen, there is no count on this burners, you can plan for 3 burners or 2 burners or 4 burners stove to be placed in kitchen. Even one burner is also not a problem. Faith is different and vastu shastra is different. Don't see the odd burners of stove burners. Our thanks to Vineet Dewan, Hyderabad.
Another three burner stove in Kitchen :
Where to Wash the Utensils (dishes) in the Kitchen ?
Generally in villages the residents are used to clean the dishes at outside only, because they have such space and provision, whereas in cities it is not so easy to get more space for all things, that is why residents after have the food, generally keeping the dishes at sink only. For the city people there is no need to say about this answer, but for the villagers or town living people those have the provision to clean the dishes at outside, then Southwest, Southeast and Northwest the water should not be sprinkled. It is better to wash the plates in East, North and half part of the Northeast, don't wash exactly towards Northeast, keep at least some space towards Northeast and do ask your servants to clean the dishes. Now coming to the point that, we are recommending the Kitchen towards Southeast and when coming to the point of cleaning the utensils it is not so easy to carry all the dishes to Northeast, North or East directions, for them, arrange one small part towards Southeast and ask your servants to clean there only, the used water has to move towards East or North or Northeast.
Constructing Island in Kitchen is good or bad :
Honestly speaking constructing island in Kitchen is too facilitates to the ladies who are doing dishes in Kitchen. It is best facilitator for preparations of many things. If one has habituate to the island, they can't do work without island in Kitchen. It may not disturbs kitchen. But in some measurements this may little harm as per vastu shastra. If the North and South has lesser measurements than East and West and having entrance from Northwest-west, then it may disturbs as per vastu shastra. So better to have one best expert vaasthu consultant suggestion after showing the property to him. He will suggest you the best recommendation after visiting the property.
Stove placement at Kitchen :
Here is a small narration on stove placement or location at kitchen, we observed several rich people house kitchens, some kitchen (stove) are towards facing to south and some are towards facing to north also, its not a serious problem, they never informed any serious issues by putting the stove towards South and North sides, but only thing is the placement or location of kitchen in the house is the important. For example placement of Kitchen in northeast is not good, so from olden days our elders are planned to place the kitchen at southeast only, its called as "Agni" corner. Kitchen means "Fire" so fire can be sit and fit at fire (Agni) place. The northeast kitchens are giving much trouble to the residents, so its always better to place and construct the kitchen at southeast or next best place is northwest parts. Maximum try to place the stove towards east side, i.e., while we cook, our face is towards East side. This is the advisable suggestion.
Can we place the Pooja room in Kitchen :
Yes, now a days it is very common due to lack of availability of space or place. If your puja room is at your kitchen then it is advised to fix a door to it. Open puja room at kitchen is not suggested, because ladies may have 3 days monthly problem, if not possible to fix up the door to puja room, then atleast maintain a curtain to Pooja room at kitchen.
Stove is towards Southeast and sink is towards South or Southeast or Southwest, is it OK :
Many residents are planned the stove towards Southeast part at Southeast kitchen, it is good. No doubt, what about water sink, it is good at Northeast or North or East directions, but in many houses it may not be suitable as per the adjacent structures or not possible to place in such directions because of many reasons. Water outlet may not reach to certain areas for free flow or some other reasons, many residents are not fix the sink towards Northeast corner. In such cases, some residents planned to fix the sink towards South or Southeast or Southwest parts of the platform. Please note that the sink is towards South or Southwest corner to the PLATFORM not on the ground level. Even it is a small mistake but it may not hurt heavily to the residents, unnecessarily don't get worried. I clearly checked these issues, no one has complained when they have the sink towards South or Southwest or Southeast, even it is towards West or Northwest (Sink towards West or Northwest are rare). In such cases keep water source at Northeast corner of the kitchen to balance it. Now we accustomed for apartment life, many residents doesn't have the independent houses. If you feels any negative results due to only this sink, or if you are inconvenient with this sink in the name of vaastu shastra, then do one simple thing, just close the sink with one wood or plastic plank after use. Generally we cannot remove it or shift it from one place to another place, because of water outlet pipes issue, so closing it with lid or plank is the best idea. Many residents are asking about this question many times, that is why we are planning to prepare with images.
We already explained you that the placement of Kitchen in the house is important, if the Kitchen was planned towards Southeast then don't worry about the stove, sink and platform, if you are more interested to know the depth of this kitchen area portion, below explanation may be useful for you. Below is the hearth in the house.
In Northwest Kitchen, where is the best place for Stove :
In South facing houses or in some houses, some residents may plan their kitchen towards Northwest area, instead of Southeast. If so stove may not fit towards Southeast, instead of Southeast they may plan at Northwest. The kitchen or hearth platform may be constructing towards the West wall not touching the Northern wall. So the dish may be prepared by facing towards West. At this moment the sink may plan towards Northwest and not touching the North wall, the best position for sink is towards East or North. But it may not possible to fix at these directions. The next best place is Northwest corner without touching the North wall. The best and suitable place for stove or hearth position at Northwest room is Southeast corner, cook food faces towards East and stove is faces west, this is the ideal placement, if it is not possible then construct the stove platform to West wall.
Southeast-east extending in the name of Kitchen :
Some times some inhabitants may raise the Southeast-east part in the name of Kitchen, they thought that extending the Southeast is good. But this extension leads to Southeast-east extension and such an arrangement increases Eastern Southeast, which is bad.
Pray God Agni Maharaj before cooking :
In a Kitchen the stove should be kept on a seat or platform, but not on the floor, it is our duty to invite Agni Maharaj the fire God, with due respect to our House. It is preferable for the one who cooks, to light the stove after taking bath with a Namaskar to Agni Dev. The first part of the food should be offered to Agni Dev and get his blessings.
Electric Stove Placements :
Some residents (particularly students, bachelor, employees, singles, paying guest houses, single women at rented properties etc) are using only Electrical stoves like Induction cook top or induction bottom cookware etc, where we have to keep it at Kitchen, if there is no Gas stove at kitchen then please place this cook top at Southeast corner. If there is gas stove then place this cook top at East, adjacent to gas stove. Fire element best place is Southeast.
Question from Balaji, Hyderabad :
My kitchen is of size 10ft by 7ft . from east to west it is 10ft and from south to north it is 7ft in that platform of granite is of 2ft .It is of L shaped . The Problem i am facing is the gap between the sink and gas stove is just 1ft .So if i place the gas stove in south east direction i get more space.But if i keep the stove in east direction i get only 1ft gap for sink and stove ?.

Hi I am KiranKumar, CEO & Founder of a leading Portal of Andhra Pradesh. I visited subhavaastu.com. I was very excited and surprised while browsing the portal. It contains a huge information about vaastu, which is really essential for mankind to lead a happy livelihood. I strongly feel we can't get this type of information from any consultant or any other source. The basic reason is lack of time with vaastu consultant to explore & express the pros and cons of our property vaastu. To greet for the same I spoke to Mr.Suresh the founder of this portal. I really appreciate Mr. Suresh garu. He is a vastu genius, kind hearted person with a strong passion towards technology and very good helping nature. Keep it up subhavaastu.com - Kirankumar - Hyderabad - Andhra Pradesh - India.
