Get set for Diwali with these eccentric pooja room décor tips
The festival of lights is right around the corner. As you clean out your rooms to welcome Goddess Laxmi, it is also time to give your pooja room a new and special look.. Pooja rooms are considered very holy according to the ancient history of Hinduism, so why leave them out?
When this is where all the religious ceremonies occur to seek blessings from the Lords, why not make the space more welcoming?
Pooja room decor tips for this Diwali
1. The door of aesthetics
Since pooja room decor must reflect a sense of divinity and calm, the entrance too must provide a holistic continuity.
A beautiful brass hanging bell with chain, dangling in the center of the entrance is just what your pooja room décor needs this Diwali season. You can also use bells on the door to add a charismatic effect to the entrance.
In case you are hunting for more options, we aren’t done yet! A stunning chandelier will glorify the elegance alongside offering a decorative piece of lighting to intensify the look of the pooja room.
Intricate designs on your pooja room door can be another way to seep straight into the heart of beauty in this room. To add to the aura, a pair of flower vases or candle stand holders nestled on the two corners of the gate isn’t a bad idea either.
2. Walls that speak with poise
As I have already mentioned above, pooja rooms are those that echo calmness. Thus, every area in this space must reflect a sense of humbleness, composure, and attentiveness to collect your sanity and let you pray in peace.
The use of minimal colour combinations is an ideal choice for a modern pooja room design. Tints of yellow, peach and golden weave up a whole new vibe that accents the area with sanctity.
If you have a thing with wallpapers, light florals in yellow and golden are incredible choices. Miniature idols of Hindu Gods and Goddesses can be adorned on one of the wall holders, to keep the look delicate and soothing.
3. The stage of sanctity
In the haste of designing an ideal private space, most people often forget to pay attention to the zone that connects the walls and keeps the vibe intact – the floor.
White marble or black granite can be a stunning pick for the flooring of the latest pooja room design. Avoid the tile-play and layering to prevent any mishap during the pooja. Flames can be really dangerous!
Hindus believe Gods are the happiest in a clean and tidy room, so use easy-to-clean and eco-friendly materials for the floor-play.
4. Vaastu can make a difference
Ideally, all pooja rooms should be situated in the North-east of your home. Make sure to check that this space is not directly connected to the toilet or built on a surface that was previously used for excretion. Ensure the ground is holy!
If you are in a dilemma regarding what other things need consideration religiously, you can contact your family priest or our expert designers. They can help you design a Vaastu-friendly pooja room design before Diwali.
Pooja rooms are heart and soul of Hindu homes crafted out of pure love and faith!
