Finding the perfect spot for a mandir or pooja room can be challenging, especially after you have designed the interiors of your urban home. While a dedicated space for the pooja room might not be a luxury for most because of space constraints, there are always nifty little ways to integrate a divine space in your home - whether it's modern, traditional, or transitional.
Regardless of how your home is designed, you can introduce a pooja room in the corridor, outdoors, or in a nook of your house.
Many homeowners consider the Vastu of a room before going ahead with designing the space. Vastu is essentially the science of energy that elevates the positive energy in your home with various elements, namely color. The right choice of colors, especially the pooja room can bring about a world of change. Designers recommend the use of yellow, orange, white, green, and gold to transform the space instantly.
Yellow - Yellow is a color that propagates optimism, happiness, and self-definition, considered to be a sacred color with spiritual significance, making it ideal for the pooja room. A room facing the north-east direction harnesses the maximum energy from the sun, perfect for the pooja room.
Orange - Orange is an auspicious color that signifies power and courage, stimulating an environment of prayer and meditation.
White - White reels in a positive space to relax and connect with oneself, signifying purity and cleanliness. Consider including a marble structure or backdrop in the pooja room.
Green - Green is symbolic of life, harmony, and nature, bringing in a soothing vibe. If you can't include a little bit of the outdoors, indoors, consider green paint for the pooja room.
Gold - Gold, like yellow, is a warm color that has a purifying effect on the energy in the pooja room. Mustard brings in a similar effect, creating the illusion of space.
