Let’s start with the pooja room, the abode of God in the house. Follow the annual tradition and bring in a new statue of Lord Ganesha, or be environment conscious and clean up or refurbish the existing one; it's your choice. Then, decorate the wall of the Pooja space with miniature spotlights that shine bright and wash the wall with warmth and beauty.

2. Bathe the house in a warm shade of yellow

Fairy lights, candles and earthen lamps are conventional, and every other home will have them for Diwali nights. So this Diwali, think differently and bathe your house in yellow light for a warm welcome. The simple yet elegant decorative style will surely make your home stand apart in the neighbourhood. All it takes is replacing the standard white LED lights with yellow lights.

3. Create Rangoli art on the wall with a collage of vibrant framed paintings

If you are planning to decorate the wall with new framed pictures, make it lively and colourful. Usually a single large artwork is expensive, and the cost increases as the size of the paintings get larger. So instead of buying one large piece of art, buy small pictures in different colours and themes. It will be cheaper, and when hung on the wall, they will resemble Rangoli.

4. Make the fountain dance to the tune of the lights

Give a makeover to the fountain of your garden through coloured lighting and enjoy the festival of light, watching the water dancing in sync with the flash of the waterproof lamps. This simple addition will bring in freshness to the old fountain at a nominal cost.

5. A fresh set of terracotta artefacts
