We use our kitchen almost everyday of our life. Keeping the kitchen clean and tidy is one of the basic requirement for good health.
If you are thinking of building a house or just want to upgrade your kitchen then you need to keep certain Feng Shui taboos in mind.
1). The sink or the refrigerator should not be placed directly opposite or right next to the stove as this creates a clash of elements. The sink and refrigerator represent the water element and the stove represents the fire element.
Remedy: If your kitchen has this problem then you can minimise its effect by placing a healthy green plant between them or by placing a barrier of some sort in front of them.
2). Avoid having too much red in your kitchen as the fire energy becomes too strong here. If you remember, we have talked about using less red colour (which represents fire energy) anywhere in the house because fire energy is very strong intrinsically and having too much red can make it go out of control.
Remedy: If your kitchen has red tiles or cupboards then you can subdue its effect by having black bench tops or by placing a bowl of water in the kitchen.
3). Do not build your kitchen in the Northwest of your house. Northwest is considered the gateway to heaven and having the kitchen there suggests having fire at heaven’s gate. Avoid placing the cooktop or stove in the Northwest corner of the kitchen too, for the same reasons discussed above. A kitchen in the Northwest will negatively effect the father/patriarch of the hose as well.
Remedy: If you have a kitchen in the Northwest then place a bowl of water there or use black bench tops. You can make sure that your stove is not in the Northwest corner of the kitchen. If you do have the stove in the Northwest then make sure to move it away, to another part of the bench top.
4). Avoid placing the kitchen in the centre of the house.
Remedy: If you have a kitchen in the middle of the house then avoid cooking over a naked flame or use the oven more than the cooktop.
If you are thinking of renovating or building then make sure you keep these tips in mind.
