Patterned Vitrified Pooja Room Tiles

Vitrified tiles are very easy to take care of and are quite ‘dazzling’. The patterned design and soft hues of blue, brown, and beige will make your small pooja room look more spacious. If you do not wish to put vitrified tiles in the whole room, install them in the centre of the pooja room in a way that they form a statement wall or corner. This will make the room visually appealing.

Wooden Pooja Room Tiles

Rustic wood in any part of the house, be it a living room or pooja room, always adds warmth and gives an earthy vibe. But opting for natural wooden planks might have its own hassles. As a solution, there are other alternatives available in the market now. You can find various engineered wood options in Orientbell's catalog. These tiles are highly durable and require low maintenance. Just because you're choosing engineered wood tiles doesn’t mean you need to compromise on the authentic rustic look of wood. These traditional pooja room tiles will beautifully segregate the pooja room from the whole house.

Ceramic Pooja Room Tiles

Pooja rooms signify positivity, peace, and tranquility. A soft-hued ceramic tile can act as a beautiful background to the place of worship. The calming prints and glossy ceramic finish bring in the calmness and a surreal feeling while praying. You can opt for darker prints if you have larger space and need to make it more private and cozy.

Here are a couple of tips that you should follow to maintain the pooja room and take care of its cleanliness and functionality:

  • The pooja room should have a serene and calm ambiance, therefore there shouldn't be any clutter that may disturb the calmness.
  • This sacred space should have separation from the other rooms of the house, especially when it connects to a social or common space.
  • The lighting in the room should also complement its quaint and tranquil vibe. Hence, make sure the lighting is not too dark or too dull; it should be well-lit all the time.
  • Just keep what is necessary and eliminate the extra stuff.
  • The idols within the room should be proportional to the dimensions of the pooja room. If the pooja room is big, choose big statues and if the space is comparatively small, choose small idols.
  • Lastly, make sure that the placement of the idols is according to the guidelines of the pooja room’s vastu shastra.
