Redecorate your Pooja room to Rejuvenate

The entire world is struck by the Corona Pandemic and people of all ages have been confined to their homes. Governments are encouraging us to be responsible citizens and help keep the spread of the virus to the minimum extent possible. This has resulted in everyone bursting with energy that has is confined within a small space, instead of being dispelled into the world with our daily routine. This accumulated energy is immense and distracting, which can end in conflicts.

Some people who are so used to being on their toes at work, choose to relax and spend some time in leisure. But too much leisure can make one sedentary and their energy is wasted or transformed into negative emotions. At times like these it is best to figure out group activities for the entire family that will keep us occupied and active. You can make use of this time and people to finish chores around the house that you have been waiting for help on.

Clean up the clutter

Assign everyone tasks to take care of their individual spaces. A cluttered house not only gets unclean and in addition there is extra energy going around. In the event of a pandemic, highest priority must be given to cleanliness and hygiene. Get rid of all the junk that’s accumulated over the years and clean every nook and cranny. After this you will notice a marked improvement in overall health in the family, especially for those suffering from allergies.

Divine spaces

Pooja rooms are the places at home where the most divine energy is concentrated. Being in the space has the power to transform our own energy into positive and productive power. This is only possible when the puja room is kept clean and open for flow of energy. The Pooja room can be as simple as a single stand on the wall to a dedicated room filled with idols and Pooja articles. At any size and space it should be brimming over with spiritual energy that envelopes and protects the whole home. One of the most effective ways to divert the extra energy of the household is to clean and decorate the Pooja room, enhancing its divinity.

Paint it right

The Pooja room should be in serene colours that will keep us calm and motivated. Choose a pleasant colour theme and even throw in some fun DIY designs. Clean the whole space and cover up the shelves. Make it a project for the entire family instead of hiring painters. This will develop creativity and imagination. This will also keep the kids occupied for quite some time and allow them to have some messy fun. Subtle shades of yellow and orange with traditional motifs work well according to visual therapy. If you are good at art, then you can even try your hand at painting traditional temple art on the walls giving the home, an actual feel of a temple.

Enchanting entryways

If your Pooja room has a traditional door, you can paint it in such a way that it is easily distinguishable from the other doors. Temple doors are panelled and decorated with copper sheets which can be easily replicated at home with the Mantra Gold coatings, decorative door panels. There are interesting laser cut Stainless steel patterns plated with brass, copper, silver and Gold. There are also beautiful 24kt Gold plated copper panels that depict different gods and goddesses like the Ashtalakshmis, Ganesha, Dasavatharam etc. These can be inlaid into existing doors. There are also frames that can be set over the door engraved with divine designs and iconographies.


The Pooja room must be well lit and bright to allow the flow of energy. Dark spaces tend to stagnate the energy. Choose effective warm white or pleasant yellow lighting. So if your Pooja room has dull lighting or is dark, then you can change out the lights and in different colours. This will help dispel any negative energy and brighten the space. Decorate the shelves and stands with glittering fairy lights. You can also place small focus lights to create a beautiful effect on the idols and paintings. This will make you feel light hearted and energised when you enter the Pooja room.

Don’t forget the floor

The floor before the altar is where we sit or stand while conducting the puja. The Indian tradition of Rangolis is one of the most beautiful ways to decorate the floor. As a daily activity you can teach the kids to use the Kolam powder to make rangolis on the floor in the Pooja room. You can also choose an elegant pattern and have it painted permanently on the floor. Alternatively there are various floor décor available with us. The most popular floor décor is the Uruli. A traditional South Indian brass or bronze bowl, which was earlier used for cooking and serving is now serving an ornamental purpose. It is placed on the floor and filled with water. Flowers can be floated in the water or arranged in decorative patterns. This makes a beautiful addition to the home and the Pooja room. It also cleanses the space by absorbing any negative energy in it.

Furnishings fit for the Gods

It is important that the idols and paintings of the Gods you have in your home are capable of channelling the divine energy.
