Vastu Colours For Your Kitchen To Bring In Good Health And Happiness

Vastu colours for kitchen

Your kitchen is a sacred space as it’s the heart of your home and the primary source of your nourishment and health, so it deserves to look healthy and happy. Read more to find out the best colours for the kitchen as per Vastu.

Vastu Shastra (the science of architecture) is an essential component of Indian interior designing projects. Why? Because we all know that energy flows and vibrations can directly affect the quality of your life and luckily this science helps you to enhance positive energies and reduce/eliminate negative energies in your living space.

There are many ways to incorporate Vastu Shastra principles in your home but the element that we’ll focus attention to in this blog is particularly Vastu colours for the kitchen. Giving your kitchen and its elements a splash of Vastu-approved colors guarantees an abundant, comfortable and harmonious life for you and your family members.

Colour therapy holds a lot of significance in this ancient science as they are powerful activators of peace and prosperity and apparently mood dictators as well. Creating the right balance of Vastu colours is known to cure Vastu defects in homes that are initially non-Vastu compliant, and also brings an optimum balance in our mind, body and spirit.

Now, let’s get into the crux of the matter. First and foremost, the ideal placement of the kitchen as per Vastu is the south-east direction as this direction represents the fire element or Agni and is also synonymous to the food cooking process with fire. So, by effect, vibrant and bright colors should be used to amplify the properties of Agni. 
Also, using different Vastu colors for different parts of the kitchen can also have a huge impact on your physical and mental well being. Some can be good for your digestion, some can be good for your metabolism and so on. To spare you the hassle of research, we’ve rounded up some specific kitchen colours as per Vastu that can be applied to walls, cabinets, countertops separately to produce desired effects. So, let’s begin.

BONUS: Tips And Tricks for A Vastu-Compliant Kitchen

  • Avoid using dark colours as they make the kitchen look smaller and may lead to depression and stress as well.
  • Even if you use bright and vibrant colours for the kitchen make sure you use them in moderation only (neither too much nor too less). Say, if you use red excessively then it can increase your blood pressure level when preparing food or make you feel more nervous than usual. You definitely don’t want that, right?
  • You can use a combination of at most three colours for your kitchen (including its parts) but not more than that as it might look overwhelming to the eye.
  • Always keep the kitchen ceilings white only to create balance.
  • Prefer to use natural colours over synthetic ones while painting your kitchen walls or any of its components.
