Home Sutra: Mini-Dining Space In Kitchen Makes For A Stronger Family Bond
The kitchen is the most important area in a home. Yet, many times it does not get the same attention as the other bigger rooms. While we are careful in planning the material used in a kitchen for optimum safety and security we must also bear in mind the Vastu requirements. Vastu is primarily based on the direction of the sun and the wind as well as in balancing energies. Improper planning of the kitchen area can cause accidents and undesirable events. Vastu Shastra offers certain guidelines for designing a kitchenette to ensure safety and well-being of the family. Kitchen area of the house represents the fire element (Agni Tattva). The way actual fire transforms raw food into cooked food, likewise symbolic fire ignites desires in your spiritual self and inspires us to achieve our goals in life.
Similarly, a certain arrangement in this crucial space of your home can help create energies that promote family bonding and add a spark to husband-wife relationship. The recommended directions for placing a dining table inside the kitchen is the north-west corner of the room. Ensure that you face east or north while taking food which is known to improve digestion.
