Vastu Remedies for North-East Kitchen

Having Kitchen in the North-East corner of your home? If you answered that “YES”, then you are not alone. There are many instances where a kitchen is, wrongly or carelessly, placed in North-East corner of a home rather than South-East. Whatever be the reason of placing kitchen in North-East corner, the fact that North-East kitchen is inauspicious remains intact.

Reason for considering North-East kitchen inauspicious is attributed to a fact that North-East is God’s corner and hence called as Eshan corner.

Is Kitchen in North East Really Being God’s corner, the North-East part of a home is charged with positive and constructive energies, and a kitchen in this portion tends to burn and transform this positive energy to negative. This negative energy then flows throughout a house having severe and (obviously) negative effects on residents.

Want to know how this negative energy effects people occupying a home?

We have compiled a list of common problems and side effects associated with North-East kitchen.

North-East Kitchen: Common Problems and Side Effects

1. Financial Problems: Whatever money that comes in is spent on unwanted expenses i.e. a lot of money gets wasted.
2. Cluttered House: Kitchen in North-East never allows a house to be clean and clutter free, the house always looks like a mess. This even has negative impact on financial health of occupants.
3. Study: Students won’t be able to concentrate on studies. No matter how much efforts they put in, their results remain mediocre.
4. Marriage: Arranging a marriage becomes a herculean task as marriages get broken without any reason.
5. Health: People who earn money and aged residents, always suffer from health ailments. This leads to enormous hospital bills and expenses.
6. Sadness for Women: It has been noticed that women in these houses are always worried and sad.

As you might be aware that each and every defect in vastu has certain remedies and North-East kitchen is not an exception. Below is a list of remedies and tips which you can follow to eliminate or at-least reduce the ill effects of this defect.

North-East Kitchen: Vastu Remedies and Tips

1. Keep the gas stove in the South-East corner of present kitchen.
2. Keep the North-East portion of the kitchen empty, clean and clutter free. If possible, slope the building towards North-East corner.
3. If there is any window in North-East part then keep it open at all times. Also, if you can, then provide an exhaust fan (make a round hole in the wall).
4. If possible, extend North-East side of kitchen either to East or North. Make pooja/prayer room or wash area in this extended portion.
5. If extension is not possible then, place the image of Goddess Annapurna in the North-East corner. You can also place a pyramid here.
6. Change the color of kitchen walls to blue or lemon yellow shade.
7. Whatever room is in the South-East corner (the actual place of kitchen), place a table or stool in the South-East corner of that room. Boil milk or cook something daily. This creates an semblance of an auxiliary kitchen in the appropriate place.
8. Place Siddha Vastu Kalash in North-East and worship God Shiva daily.
9. Hang 3 bronze bowls (in upside down position) near the ceiling of the kitchen. Hang 1st bowl at the NE corner, the 2nd towards the left of the 1st bowl and the 3rd bowl towards the right of the 1st bowl. Make sure that none of these bowls are just above the gas stove.

You must also know that apart from location of kitchen in a home, the placement of items within a kitchen is equally important. Read our article to know kitchen vastu and arrangement of items in a kitchen as per vastu shastra.

While above mentioned tips are good and effective, still the best and most favorable tip is to relocate the kitchen to South-East corner.

    Hi Ganga Ram,

    Yes, the kitchen is in the NE corner. The SW cut can be ignored at that’s a balcony in SE.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Subhashgss,

    For the cut, you can place 4 vastu pyramids one in each North, East, South and West of your home.

    The SE corner is ruled by Venus and thus men must not use it. If a guy uses the SE corner bedroom for a prolonged time, he tends to become quarrelsome and may develop some feminine characteristics.

    Dear Sir,

    As asked by you I have drawn a sketch of my house and sending it to you. Hope this would give u a better idea of my house structure and you could help me out. The slant lines are doors. I have an open kitchen. The windows to both bedroom and living room is big till the floor. Height 7 ft and width around 6 feet. The kitchen platform i have coloured in grey. Both the bathrooms are having big mirrors. The cupboards are wall mounted. One cupboard next to the study table have a long mirror. It is not exactly facing the bed but after i get up from the bed and walk out i am able to see myself in it. Sir please help me. Lots of financial problems are coming up and I cant take a chance with my kids studies since next year is a crucial year as she would be preparing for her board exam. Lots of misunderstanding between husband and me too.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Regards
    Kavita

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Kavita,

      As per the sketch that you’ve sent, your home is a
      diagonal home. With this comment I’ve attached an ideal layout of how a
      diagonal home can be. That’s going to help you – I assume.

      I can see that your kitchen is near North and that leads
      to lot of financial troubles. You can apply the remedies that I’ve mentioned in
      Vastu for North-East kitchen article. Here’s the link: http://www.vastushastraguru.com/vastu-remedies-north-east-kitchen/

      Once the financial condition stabilizes, I believe, the
      quarrels would automatically stop and you and your family will live a happy
      life.

      Regarding studies of kids, I recommend you to read my

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I have been staying in a rented house for the past 2 years and have observed the problems similar to those stated by you and I found that my kitchen too is in the NE corner of the house. I would be following the remedies mentioned by you and hope it works. I have observed that my children who were very excellent in their studies are going down. I want some remedy for that too so that they do well in their studies. I would also like to know that in this house i dont get a proper east or west facing wall. its mostly NE, NW,SE and SW walls. So where should I place my small temple which would be auspicious for me. Also in the bedroom the position of the bed is only north east since the other direction is east and in that case our head would be next to the bathroom wall, so which position is ok to sleep in? Also there is a drainage pipe going under our bathroom and perpendicular/paralled to the position of the bed. We could clearly hear the sound of water gushing out sometime. Does anything need to be done for that? I am in no position to change the house since the new rent is not at all affordable by us. So please please help me out and give me a solution.

    Hi Gurcharan Singh Sahota,

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi David,

    A pyramid -basically – enhances the positive energy. Now, if a pyramid has, suppose, Shree Yantra carved or written on it, then it will enhance good luck and attract money.

    Hence, if there’s a specific defect that someone wants to eliminate then a specific pyramid can be used.

    As far as materials of a pyramid is concerned, that can be copper, mixture of astha dhatu or “eight elements” or even of quartz crystal.

    The size of pyramid to be used depends upon the intensity of defect, the amount of space that needs to be energized and budget.

    Hope we’re able to answer your queries.

      Thank you for your prompt reply and information it’s very helpful.

      All the problems and side effects that come along with a Kitchen in the NE are strongly present. I want to reduce all those defects. My kitchen is 68.90 sq ft.

      Kindly advice.

      • VastuShastraAdmin

        Hi David,

        For a NE kitchen, the best remedy is to hang 3 bronze bowls (in upside down position) near the ceiling of the kitchen.

        Hang 1st bowl at the NE corner, the 2nd towards the left of the 1st bowl and the 3rd bowl towards the right of the 1st bowl.

        Make sure that none of these bowls are just above the gas stove.

    Thanks,
    Admin

    • kalpesh

      Hi, I have put lines indicating W and E direction. If you see the E is towards utility. Yes, it is diagonal as per the direction. So the kitchen seems to be in the N-E. What should i do?

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Raman,
    Facing North while cooking is a vastu defect; relocate the gas stove to East side so that the cook faces East while cooking.

    I see that there’s a bedroom in NE and that’s again a vastu defect; read our article @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/north-east-vastu-dosh-remedies/

    Also, I see that your home entrance is SW which is a huge vastu defect; suggest you to read http://www.vastushastraguru.com/south-west-vastu-dosh-remedies/

        • VastuShastraAdmin

          Hi Shashank,

          Yes, a Pooja ghar in NE is fine.

        Hello Sir,

        Changing the location of kitchen is not possible. However I can merge the Utility area with kitchen and make Pooja ghar at the north east corner. And keep the Stove in the Utility area. In this way, the distance between stove and Pooja ghar will be near around 10 Feets. Will that be fine? Any suggestion.

  • praveenthebest .

    i have south facing plot 20 x 50 please give me suggestion on the layout vastu. and suggest any change

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Praveen,

      As per vastu shastra, the plot must be either square or rectangle. In rectangular case, the ratio of length:breadth can be maximum of 1:2. In your case this vastu principle is violated and hence is a vastu defect.

    Our kitchen too is in northern east side unfortunately. Am attaching pict of the same. To compound we also have wash room in north.
    You can view that in the first pic. Second pict is the area outside, where we have open space and wash area towards the corner.

    Pls suggest remedial measures….

    Thanks
    Rajashekharan

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Rajashekharan,

      We assume that the door in the pic of open area leads to kitchen (as the tiles in image of kitchen and open area seem to match), if that’s the case than it’s good that you have open space in North-East corner of your home.
      If our previous assumption is correct than the kitchen is not exactly in North East corner but is towards North-East side. You can still apply vastu shastra remedies that we’ve provided in the article above.
      From the pics of your home, we see that there’s a bathroom (with attached toilet) in North and that’s a vastu defect. An easy solution to this is to stop using the toilet in North and just use the bathroom for bathing or washing clothes etc.
      Also you can read more on toilet and bathroom vastu shastra guidelines @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/toilet-bathroom-vastu-tips/

      Thanks,
      Admin

      • rajashekharan mahendar

        Dear admin

        Appreciate your quick response. Thank you v much.

        Your assumption about the kitchen opening is correct. The door in the earlier pic leads into kitchen. And the kitchen wall has around 3feet from the wall on North and 8 feet towards the east.

        Is there any remedy for toilet, reason I am asking is that it is a common washroom/toilet.
        Pls suggest if any specific to my case as you have seen the placement of the bathroom.

        Sir I would like to seek one more clarification.

        We have 2 pits in the south west of the plot. Am attaching the pics of the pits.

        1) water sump ( cover painted red )
        2) drain manhole farther towards the compound wall

        Should we get a bigger pit dug up at the NE side that is pop to the current kitchen to negate or compensate for the pit at SW direction of the plot.
        Also please note that the open area towards South is more than the north, as is seen in the second pict attached.

        Pls suggest any thing I can do to negate the ill effects of pits on the SW direction.

        Thanks in advance

        Regards
        Rajashekharan

        • VastuShastraAdmin

          Hi Rajashekharan,

          Coloring the SW pit with red color can reduce the ill effects. However, that’s not a complete remedy.

          Also, a man hole in SW is major vastu defect. As per vastu shastra, the SW portion of a home must be heavier.

          You can read more on SW vastu defects @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/south-west-vastu-dosh-remedies/

          We suggest that you read all the below mentioned articles to have a clear understanding of vastu shastra for each and every corner of a home.

            Once again I should appreciate your immediate response.

            Have been through the articles pertaining to 4 corners.

            By complete remedy for the SW pits you mean what?.

            1) Will it suffice if I move the manhole outside of the compound.

            2) Should I get some room constructed above the water sump. Or get the watersump also shifted.

            3) what are the other means by which I can make that portion of the house heavier.

            Pls advice..

            Thanks & regards
            Rajashekharan

          • VastuShastraAdmin

            Hi Rajashekharan,

            It’s good to know that you’ve read all the posts.

            By complete remedy we mean that it’s going to reduce the ill effect and not eradicate them.

            Moving the manhole outside your boundary wall is the best option.

            Shifting the water sump is better than making a room over it.

            To make SW heavier:
            1. Increase the height and width of SW walls.
            2. If you have some heavy equipment or machinery that you can place it in this corner.

            If you feel, then you can ask for guidance from a local vastu expert.

      You can take a picture of that sketch from your mobile phone and attach it with your next comment.

        what remedy needs to be followed If while Cooking the persons faces south direction ??

        • VastuShastraAdmin

          There’s no remedy for this. One must face East if kitchen is in SE or West if kitchen is in NW
