A kitchen that motivates you to cook

The kitchen is the place where the meals are created–it fuels the bodies, minds, and souls of family and guests. According to Vastu shastra, the health and prosperity of the family highly depend upon the kitchen arrangement. More the pleasant, welcoming and efficient your kitchen, healthier & prosperous you are.  It is popularly known as a hub of the home.  It is a bonding space that ties your home together with a loved one. 

A  positive space helps a person to cook tirelessly in preparing delicious and nutritious meals. Energetically it governs abundance and well-being since it is where we are nourished both physically and emotionally. Many people believe that cooking is a holy activity, analogous to delivering an offering of love—and making the kitchen a sort of temple. Kitchens can be very inspiring. A well-organized kitchen is a happy place that makes you want to spend time there, and in turn, encourages cooking.
