Kitchen is a place in any house which is treated as the place of worship and Goddess Lakshmi resides there. It is believed to be a women place where she cooks food for every member of her loving home. It is a sacred place which should be built with care removing all ill-effects because kitchen is directly related to its owner or lady of the house and any thing related to kitchen directly affects the lady itself.

Moreover, its very important to know the correct direction of the kitchen as well as the place of the Gas stove also matters.

    The kitchen should ideally be located in the south-east direction. In case there is no provision for building your kitchen in the south-east direction, you can also opt for north-west direction as per Vastu. Refrigerators can be placed in south-east, north, south and even west directions according to Vastu Shastra
