Confused about how to decorate your house and create a sacred ambience that suits the occasion? No need to worry; here, you will get to know terrific tips that will help you decorate your house for the auspicious Ram Mandir Inauguration in Ayodhya.

Illuminate with Diyas

On such a special occasion, it is vital that our house shines brightly, and lighting diyas will help you in doing that. Diyas are extremely affordable and easily accessible so that anyone can get a dozen for their house. You can place the diyas in such a way that they lighten the house and give positive vibes. Even the Honourable Prime Minister of India has requested the public to light diyas (earthen lamps) in their houses. You can also light diyas to decorate temple for Shree Krishna Janmashtami.

Tip- Place diyas away from flammable materials to prevent accidents or mishaps.

Use decorative lights

A bright house is key for any auspicious occasion, and while diyas might do it for some time, you will need decorative lights to make your house sparkle and embrace the iconic moment. To save money, you can use the decoration lights used in Diwali, but if you have the budget, you can go for new and uniquely designed decorative lights.

Light Incense Sticks

The essence of the house matters a lot during sacred activities as the essence should suit the occasion. If all our senses are pointing towards one direction, then it is common for our mind to focus on it. The moment someone enters your house, they will notice the aroma of incense sticks and focus on the spiritual route.

Place a Ram Mandir Idol

Rangoli Radiance

Rangoli Radiance

In Hindu Culture, Rangoli is made on special and prosperous occasions, and Ram Mandir’s inauguration is the perfect time to make one. Rangoli is made of different colours and symbolises happiness and prosperity. Rangoli also acts as a canvas for you to show your creativity, and you can add different elements like Ram mandir or Ayodhya to make your Rangoli more relevant and attractive.

Rangoli is going to be the centre of attraction in your house, and it is also going to attract your neighbours to come and visit your house.

Tip- If you can’t make Rangoli, there is no need to drop the plan; you can purchase Rangoli stencils from the market to help you create Rangoli swiftly and efficiently.

Breath-taking Floral Arrangements

Investing in mesmerising floral arrangements is a great plan, as no one can deny that natural beauty is supreme and ultimate. Decorating our house with flowers will make it more pleasant, comfortable, and divine in beauty. You can go for flowers like Marigolds, jasmine, and lotus and also have flowers of your liking to make the place more divine.

Breath-taking Floral Arrangements

Whether you create garlands of the flowers or create patterns with the petals of the flowers, one thing is for sure: you will infuse freshness and natural fragrance into your house. The aesthetic appeal of the flowers is commendable, as the floral decoration will constantly remind us of the sacred occasion.

If you don’t want to purchase flowers from the market, you can also grow flowers at your home. Home Gardening is a great habit that will benefit you in decorating the house without spending a penny.

Magnificent Wall Art

On the auspicious occasion of Ram Mandir Pran Pratishtha in Ayodhya, you cannot keep your walls empty and bland. You can buy a magnificent wall art piece that completely changes your house’s look. Try going for an artwork related to the occasion, as it will blossom our hearts more. You can go for art pieces related to Ramayana, Ram Mandir and much more, as the traditional artworks go well with the modern design of the house and create an illusion that you have gone back in time.

Enhance your house with Spiritual Colours

To take the decorations and design of your house to the next level, you can use spiritual colours, as our traditional colours are hands down impactful and prestigious. The overall colour and theme of the house should be such that it instantly reminds us of the temple’s inauguration. Colours like saffron, deep red, and gold elevate house decorations perfectly.

If you can’t afford to paint your whole house, you can simply paint the main wall of the house, and it will be equally impactful.

Traditional Crafts

Traditional Crafts

The traditional Indian craft pieces are eye-catching and can be a great conversation starter. To make your modern house an embodiment of the Ram Mandir, it is vital to add traditional elements to your house. Artisans in India are immensely talented, and by buying traditional craft pieces from them, we will not only upgrade our house but will also support the craftsmen and artisans of the country.

You can go for wood carvings, handmade pottery, hand-woven textiles or items that go well with the overall theme of your house.

Tip- Try to keep a balance with the craft pieces as you don’t want to overfill the house with items and end up taking away the grace from the place.

Ayodhya-inspired Furnishings

Ayodhya-inspired Furnishings

Furniture occupies a lot of space in our house, and if it is not coordinated with the house’s overall theme, which is Ram Mandir, the house might look out of place, and we don’t want that. You don’t need to replace all the furniture in your house as it can be pretty heavy on the budget. Instead, you can use Ayodhya-based furnishings like pillow covers, sofa covers, curtains, etc. The addition of such furnishings will make the house more harmonious.

Spiritual Corners

Turning the whole house into a spiritual centre is an impossible task, but what you can create is a spiritual corner in your house that will be away from all the hassle and noise of the world. Find a calm and composed corner or room in the house that you can use for prayer and meditation. In this corner, you can spend time taking Ram Naam and embracing the marvellous occasion. Comfortable seating and adequate soft lighting will be perfect for you to do Pooja and read some religious texts.

The purpose of decorating the house is not to show the outer world but to create an environment in the house that goes well with the occasion and allows you to pray to God.

Witnessing the inauguration of Ram Mandir is a big feat as it was a dream of many previous generations to see this day. We should celebrate occasions in life because these events add colour to our lives and make them more memorable. With the decor tips, indeed, your house will not only look beautiful but will also become more spiritual, traditional and prosperous.
