Setting up a pooja room at home? Here is a basic guide

by Nayan Sharma Online Furniture Shopping Store

Everyone wishes to decorate a beautiful and serene space to worship their sacred deities in their homes. This is often referred to as a pooja room. People prefer to match this space with the décor of their house. So, if you want to create such a room and install a home mandir, here is a simple guide to help you with:

Search for a platform

Many believe having a pooja room ensures their house is filled with positive energy. It is that corner where they feel connected to their spiritual self. So, whether they build a new home or move to a rented apartment, they try to set up this space for themselves. Since placing idols on the floor is not an option, people prefer to invest in a home mandir. They are available in various styles, designs, colours, etc., and you can easily buy them as home furniture online.

However, before choosing one, ensure it matches your space and use. Measure the area and compare the numbers to the dimensions of the mandir before buying it. Additionally, brands like Pepperfry offer numerous choices, and you can choose from wall-mounted pooja mandirs to ones with storage and more.

Idol placement

After you have invested in a platform that matches your space, it is time to place the idols of deities on it. The placement usually depends on certain principles, and you should follow them carefully. 

Decorate the floor

Traditionally, people have decorated the floor of their pooja rooms with rangolis and other floor art. Today, you can easily add readymade floor rangolis in numerous designs to make this room more beautiful. You can also place cushions for a modern look. This disallows you from sitting directly on the floor, a strict no-no in this room. On special occasions, add a beautiful Urli or two in this room, fill them with water, and decorate them with flowers.

Accessorise the doorway

You can accessorise the entrance with a toran if you have a dedicated pooja room. People have been using torans to invoke the presence of Gods and Goddesses. They also protect you from evil spirits.

Keep storage in mind

Storage is essential to keep your puja room organised and tidy. It lets you store diyas, sacred books, and other ritual essentials. You can either look for pooja stands and mandirs with additional storage or invest in separate storage cabinets for your space. However, make sure you invest in cabinets that match the room's aesthetics.

Mind the lighting

Your pooja room is a sacred space and should be well-illuminated. Traditionally, people use oil lamps or diyas to brighten this space. Besides decorative diyas, you can also install lighting to create a calm and soothing ambience for this space.
