Get Some Tips on How to Decorate Pooja Room?
Today we will give you ideas on how to decorate pooja room.
Each morning after waking up and having our bath we pray to god. We thank him and seek his blessings for a better and happy life. Every Hindu household has a pooja room. It can be a separate room, a cabinet or just a simple shelf.
Here is a step by step tutorial on how to decorate pooja room:
Set up your pooja room; choose a proper place in the North-East corner of your house. If you already have a pooja room, then choose between white, yellow, blue or violet colour and paint it. Avoid using dark shades.
If you wish to have any religious symbols or mantras to be painted on the wall, add them. No matter what we should always keep our pooja room clean and decorated. Never keep or store unnecessary items in your pooja room.
Buy mandir/mandap and place it in your pooja room. There are awesome wood, glass and marble mandaps available in the market today. Some even have gold coating and Swarovski crystals on them.
You can easily get one with the choice of design and size you looking for. If you don’t want a mandap, then go for cabinets or open shelves.
Now it’s time to light it up. Lighting holds the key to your pooja room’s beauty and serenity. Keep your pooja room properly lit and ventilated to allow the flow of positive energy. Add a chandelier in the centre to make it prettier. You can add colourful LED lights in the mandap or around the shelf to decorate them.
Add a door to your pooja room. Go for a simple wooden door or choose one with intricate carvings and bells on them. You can even install glass doors and keep your pooja room visible from outside even when the doors are closed.
Decorate the entrance by placing flower vases or tall oil lamps on either side of the entrance. Hang flower or paper door hangings on the entrance door.
Choose beautiful idols, paintings or photo of your deity. Adorn them with laced (gota) garments and jewellery. Put laced spread on the shelves of mandir, cabinet or shelf before placing the idols on them.
You can also add a throne (singhasan) made of wood, glass, brass, silver or gold and place the idols on them. See to it that you don’t place lots of idols in your pooja room and make it cramped.
Lastly, use flowers to decorate your pooja room. Make rangoli using flower, flower petals, rice flour, coloured saw dust and other similar items. Rangoli, kolam, muggu and pookalam have been made to decorate our homes and pooja rooms since ancient times.
Create gorgeous patterns and designs on the floor or in a vessel filled with water and place it in your pooja room.
