We all believe in the power of the divine. Don’t we? Even if there are some naysayers, tell me this, whenever you are in a trouble don’t you seek help from the almighty? Most of you would definitely say yes to this. Obviously, some of you might not be going to the temples or praying to the supreme power daily. On the other hand, some of you would be a strong believer of the divine who seeks his blessing daily by praying in their worshipping room. Maybe, that’s why, whenever individuals are revamping the house or moving to a new place, they pre-decide the place that will be the abode of the Gods in their house. However, sometimes in the urban living spaces, individuals don’t get enough space to dedicate a whole room for worshipping. Hence, they resort to deciding a corner or a bit of empty space they have.

Thus, in this blog, we tell you ways to decorate that empty little space, room, or the wall dedicated to the divine. There are a lot of options like a Ganesha painting, Ganesha idols and other sorts of artefacts and religious and traditional paintings. Let’s take a walk through all of them.


  • Hang your favorite traditional paintings-

Your space can be full of all sort of modern styles of painting and you must be going gaga over them. In a house of an art lover like you, would leaving a divine space like that be good? Obviously not. Consider placing traditional paintings with intricate patterns in the room.  You can place Madhubani, Miniature, or Pattachitra art on the walls of the praying room.

  • Consider printed fabrics for the backdrop-

A good way to stay in budget is to go for printed fabrics. Choose a fabric that has a traditional print on them. Just take the cloth and stick it on the wooden plank. Get it framed and use this as a backdrop for placing idols. You can also use the same as traditional wall art.

  • Incorporate exquisite Indian artefacts-

The only place that has many idols in every house is surely the divine room. So don’t just limit your imagination and creativity to wreathing the wall with paintings. Use it to adorn the worshipping room of your house. Place golden idols, mirrors and lanterns and similar.


  • Make use of Religious Paintings-

Adding paintings that add more meaning to your space. Leaving the walls blank will not look good, so add paintings that add more meaning and value to the room. Go for religious paintings, like Ganesha painting, Shiva painting, or whichever you like. Also, opt for a painting of Lord Shiva to make the place more pristine and serene.

  • Use the undermined corner-

You can also use the unused corner of your house in place of your Pooja room. Allocate the space to deities by placing a wooden triangle rack in the corner and keeping the idols there.


The points mentioned above will surely help you in decorating your worshipping space properly. Still, don’t limit your ideas to the ideas given in this blog. They are just a suggestion from our end. In fact, you can actually defy the usual norm of placing paintings that are traditional or religious. Use modern Ganesha painting, if you want to make the room look edgy yet traditional. However, remember abstract paintings, even if religious, never give peace, they distract. In addition to this, you also need to be heedful of the kind of lighting you use. Colors like yellow, red, golden and orange should be used. You can also place rose petals in a glass bowl and make garlands of Marigold. Walls with off-white colors will also elevate the ambiance. Indoor plants will surge freshness as well. So, browse through the traditional paintings offered by various online art galleries.  Also, do share this blog with the ones who are planning to spruce up their divine room.
