Vastu-Friendly Colors for your Kitchen

Colors inspire our moods and emotions. According to Vastu Shastra, colors greatly impact the overall energy of a given space. In an earlier blog, the general direction and orientation was discussed in accordance to Vastu Shastra. For reference to this blog, click here. Different colors have different energies and cause varied vibrations in certain spaces. In the kitchen, there are certain colors that create a positive energy more than others.


Vastu Shastra states that the ideal placement of your home spaces is a matter of direction and colors, where certain colors are ideal in certain directions. In the case of a kitchen, the first direction to start with is the Southeast. The kitchen itself, should be in the Southeast most section of your home, and the prime kitchen activity (cooking) should also face southeast. The best color for the southeast direction is silver/white. However, as an alternative direction, or the placement of many of your kitchen appliances, the next-best direction is the northwest, and the best color for the northwest corner is white, making the best color for your kitchen be white. Other Vastu-friendly colors to be used in your kitchen are given below.

Red, Orange, Yellow: A dash of these warm colors go very well with white, and they symbolize the fire element of the kitchen. The warm colors bring energy, happiness, and increase appetite. However, according to Vastu, these colors should be used in smaller amounts, such as in the form of utensils, decorations, or accent cabinets in your kitchen.
