Pooja Room Designs
Design Ideas for Pooja Room Inside Your Home
Howdy people? I am sure you must have got an idea of what am I going to talk about in this post. Everyday at home when you get up early in the morning, the first and the foremost thing we Indians do after taking bath is worship god and thank him for everything he has given to us. When you can think of designing a living room, bedroom or veranda, how can you forget to design a pooja room?

Pooja room: A separate space in Indian homes to worship god. A 5 minutes of worship can really make your day, yes I do believe in that. I don’t have a separate room for puja but I do have a well-built mandir in my bedroom as most of us have. Don’t worry, I will be sharing a separate post on some real and traditional designs for home mandir as well.
For now, you can check out the following images which will definitely help you to set up your pooja room.

Few things that make your home pavitra or pious early in the morning are those bells and incense sticks, how about having those jingle bells right at the entrance door (?) just like the door design spotted at prismma (image below).
While one must keep in mind that:
1. Best Direction for the pooja room set-up: NorthEast Direction (specifically on the ground floor)
2. Preferable colors: Neutrals or may be white or yellow
3. Pooa room must be kept neat and clean
4. Positive energies can be welcomed with rich fragrance and melodious sound of bells.
5. The idols of the Gods and Goddess should not face each other and should be kept at a higher level.

Now a days, television serials has been an inspiration for all of us, as we see all those beautiful mandir designs in the so called “homes” of daily soap actresses, where they invite us with the jingles in the background music and tulsi & parvati welcoming you! Even the sets of serial are designed by set designers and that’s why they look so gorgeous and twinkling.
Whether you want to do up your pooja room inside your home or in veranda, hope this post helps you for the same. Also, if you have a compact space for placing the statues of God, you can partition it using glass doors/room dividers.
