This Diwali we present you with a list of home decoration ideas that will help you expedite your preparation for the festival of lights.

  1.  Cleaning Is The Key

Before you even start decorating your home, it is ideal to deep clean your home. Clean out every corner of your home, wash your tiles until they shine, clean your furniture until it gleams, and clean out all your appliances until they glow. It is said that cleaning your home helps clear out all the negativity from your home and brings in positivity.

  1.   Do Up Your Door

When you are decorating your home for Diwali, don’t forget to decorate your doors since that is what your guests will see first, even before entering your home! Add a beautiful toran on your door to give it a festive feel and to welcome Goddess Lakshmi into your home with colours and happiness. Torans are not just made of flowers. The ones made using wool or beads can be hung permanently to give your home a welcoming feel throughout the year. You can even use a combination of beaded or wool torans with floral torans to create an interesting look.

Diwali Decoration for Doors

  1.   Create Stunning Rangolis

An age-old practice that has been followed by our ancestors is the practice of creating a beautiful rangoli the night before Diwali. These beautiful rangolis are created using coloured powders and are colourful patterns made outside the main door of the house to welcome the guests and to please Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi. While preparing rangolis, traditional motifs can be used. Small footprints can be made using vermillion and rice flour in the direction of entering the house as this symbolises the entry of the goddess into the house.

Rangoli Designs

  1.   Use Dupattas As Drapes

Decorate your home using fancy dupattas. You can hang them from the roof in order to create a canopy drape or hang them from walls to create a draped effect. Colourful dupattas can add a pop of colour to your decor and add some fervour to your festivities.
