The kitchen, being the room in the home that is the most expensive to build, represents wealth and how you relate to wealth. It is also the place where you store foods. For most of human history, an abundance of food was associated with being rich and powerful.
The materials used for the floors and walls, the plumbing, the cabinets and the appliances all add up to the cost of building a kitchen.
A fancy kitchen tells you and the world that you are doing well financially.
I define wealth as an accumulation of property, skills and connections.
Wealth is also related to legacy.
Your legacy encompasses your children, and the things you will be remembered for in your family circles and in your community.
In Feng Shui, the kitchen represents the life area we call Wealth, Prosperity and Self Worth.
