A pooja room is one area in this house that needs to be simple yet attractive. This is a spot that needs to be relaxing and should exude a certain calmness. While many prefer to go with bright and bold colours, using subtle tones and adding patterns and designs that invoke your devotion is the right way to go. The interior designers and decorators of The Karighars, Bangalore have tons of suggestions for the perfect space in your home. Using modern lighting, murals, and simple shelves, you can create the perfect area.
What better way to make an impression than with an amazing door. Here, you can see that the wooden door has a wonderful glass façade. The glass panel features a mountain and Lord Krishna. The combination of colours and the idea itself makes this a charming way to create a unique space. Adding bells to the door gives the puja space its identity.
Once the door is opened, you can see the beauty of the inside. Using wood beams, the room looks traditional and spiritual. A beautiful marble mandir sits flush against the wall and it has been decorated with pictures of the gods that you would like to contemplate on.
Sometimes, you only have a small alcove or a space for a ‘mandir’. This design is perfect as it accentuates the beauty of the space with MDF boards. The unique and modern design on the boards bordering the alcove is perfect. It has a well-lit background and this brightens the space too. Using two fairly large idols in the centre gives the space a unique character and look.
This lovely alcove has been set up with small ledges that can hold idols of different sizes. Staying away from the usual pattern of featuring a single ledge to hold all the idols you possess, consider interspacing them this way. It looks neat and clutter-free. A darker shade of a patterned wall is featured as a column in the centre so it provides a contrast to the subtle and light tones.
Using bold colours is a fabulous idea especially if you have an entire room dedicated for your pooja. For instance, one wall features cows and peacocks as it reminds you of Lord Krishna. The opposite wall has been finished in a deep crimson colour. This makes for a perfect backsplash as the white marble mandir stands out beautifully against this tone.
Using a small corner may sound difficult but, in this design, you can see that a wonderful backdrop has been created. The step-like feature below the same makes for an amazing design. Here, you can not only set up quite a few idols but it makes quite an impression as well.
