Navratri is associated with the battle of the Great Goddess Durga and the demon Mahisasura, who represents egotism. The festival runs across nine days and is centered on the theme of the light prevailing over darkness. While, the festival has strong religious connections, in today’s day and age Navratri has a whole new meaning. It marks the beginning of the festive season and gets everyone to start preparing for the same.

It is also a time when people give their homes a makeover. Be it getting a whitewash, home colour, new furniture or accessories, we go all out to adorn our homes. If like us, you’re looking for inspiration for this year’s home makeover, we’ve got a few home decor tips for you.

Clean your puja room

Your temple room is the most important part of your home and you should begin your preparations by cleaning this sacred space. This is the most likely space where Goddess Durga is going to reside for the period of nine days during Navratri. This means you need to make sure that you keep the idol of Durga immaculate. Opt for cleaning agents such as baking soda to get rid of dust and dirt from the idol.

Give your walls a new lease of life

Home Paint

With the festive season coming, you have all the reason to splurge on a home revamp project. You can pick a vibrant colour scheme and get some home paint for your walls. A repainting project can instantly make your house look and feel brand new. In some cases, it can also contribute to making your rooms seem larger. You can get all your walls painted in solid colour and have just one feature wall with textured paints.

Get your furniture coated

Nerolac’s range of wood finishes are perfect for renewing your old furniture. There are different types of wood coatings to suit your requirements. Most of these coatings are premium, light in colour, durable, scratch resistant, stain resistant and non-yellowing. You can consult with our painting expert to know more about our range of wood coatings.

Light your house with Diyas, candles, and lamps

Diyas are synonymous with Indian festivals. You can brighten up your puja room and living room with small diyas and intricately designed lamps. If you prefer candles, then that could be a good option to go for instead of Diyas. If you are a crazy DIYier, then maybe you could get together with your kids and come up with your own decorations for your home.

Use antique idols and showpieces

If you are a real home decor enthusiast, then you can fish for some antique style models or figurines for your home. You could also use some ethnic room dividers and bells to make your home look more festive.
