The placement of Kitchen should be planned at the South East portion of a house and cooking should be done facing east direction. The only other alternative to South East(Fire/Agni) is North West(Air/Vayu).
A window can be planned in the East of the North East portion of the SE Kitchen and the Exhaust can be planned to be kept at the South of the South East portion of the SE Kitchen. Opening for Window or Exhaust should not come in the East of the South East portion.
The kitchen slab should not fully extend and touch the North wall of the kitchen so as to ensure that the North East portion is not closed.
The window or the structure for separating the kitchen and the dining hall should be square or rectangle in shape.
Kitchen should never be planned in the North East or South West portion of a house.
