If there is a dishwasher in the kitchen then place it in the northwest side of the kitchen. The other water elements like drinking water should be placed in the northeast direction. Electrical Appliances in the Kitchen The different electrical appliances also need to find a right place in the kitchen according to Vaastu shastra. For example if the refrigerator is a part of the kitchen then place it in the southwest direction. Exhaust fans in the kitchen should always be put on the eastern walls in the southeast corner. Other electrical appliances like microwave can be put in the southeast corner. Storage Storage is also a very important aspect of the kitchens. If you have cabinets in the northeast side then use it for storing light things only. Have elaborate storage units that are built in to give a clean and tidy look to the kitchen. If your kitchen has overhead storage cupboards then avoid having them over the cooking range.

Second best option available is atNorth west direction . Placement of stove is a great thing according to the vastu shastra. In some duplex houses, there is a bedroom above the kitchen. It is quite probable that the bed is just located above the stove. This is not a good arrangment. You should either reposition the bed or the stove. Also check for the toilet on the upper level.

Case Study:- A highly qualified lady called me few months ago for an appointment toaudit her house, as she was facing a relationship problem since last one year. This problem floated soon after family moved to new place. A vastu analysis of her house revealed that stress in the relationship was just due to the kitchen interior. The gas (fire) was just too closed to water. There was hardly distance of one feet between fire and water. Sadly she has spent huge amount in kitchen interior . Here both the

element and water are having a clash, causing family members to have disagreements resulting in to stress. We have adviced two possible solutions to cure this vastu defect. They were making a wooden partition or shifting a water (which was also at wrong corner) to other side. A lot of pain in the relationship could have been avoided if they have been alert on vastu arrangement in the kitchen at begining.
