Kitchen is one of the most important part of the house, especially for the women who cook in it. Very often people ignore the importance of kitchen while constructing the house and therefore they keep the size of it very small.
According to Vastu Shastra small kitchens, kitchens constructed in a wrong direction, messy and unorganized kitchens have very negative effects on the residents. Kitchen should be given as much importance in the house as you give to other rooms or parts of the house.
