Design Ideas for a Puja Room

All Indian homes have traditionally had a puja room, a peaceful sanctum for a conversation with God, a place where we owe gratitude for each day and probably the only place which guides us and calms us down during turbulent times. Yet with today’s lack of space and more people shifting to apartments it’s a challenge to maintain a separate puja room. People have sought satisfaction in having just a puja corner. Here we have emphasized the use of wood in creating different puja room designs which you can incorporate in your home.

Design #1 : Small puja room design

This puja room has a glass entrance with lattice work at the sides making it look elegant. The lattice work throws natural light into the puja room. The interior can be given a wooden false ceiling with the required LED recessed lights for a tranquil atmosphere.

 Design #2 : Puja corner

A puja room can be given a brown and white color combination with white glossy laminate for easy maintenance. A wooden cladding makes a backdrop enhancing the holy ambience. Easy drawers for storing puja ingredients and books and other materials are required for making this area self sufficient.

 Design #3: Blending the puja room with the living area.

A puja room can definitely be made a part of the living room. The above is a very aesthetically done puja area blending totally with the rest of the décor. A false ceiling with cove lighting highlights the puja area. A niche in the wall places all the frames of various deities. A similar colored platform demarcates the pious sanctum. In this manner we have incorporated the puja place making it private yet very much in our thoughts.

 Design #4 : Wall hung Puja area

As we all know in today’s constraint for space, it is not always possible to allot a separate space for the puja room. A clever option is to have a wall hung double tiered puja unit where deities and puja accessories can be kept neatly. This design does not occupy space nor does it restrain movements of people in the house. So we can have our holy place despite the lack of space. Choose a chestnut or walnut polish color to add grace to the white walls. You can see a wall hung pooja room in our recent project in Capetown in Noida designed by our Interior Designers in Noida.

These were some ideas about wooden puja rooms. Do wait for our feature on marble and granite ones which are the traditional materials used. Wood is a much more inexpensive option and can look equally elegant. One can easily accentuate woodwork with brass items.
