What are Some Creative Diwali Lighting Options for Your Home?

One week before Diwali, three gentlemen and a lady were discussing a matter of grave importance in one corner of the community hall of a prominent housing complex in Kolkata. They were visibly excited but were speaking in hushed, stressed tones. It seemed that they were highly agitated about some aspects of the impending Diwali.

The three gentlemen were Ankush (8 years), Eshan (9 years), Ritam (8 years), and the lady was Rini (8 years).

They were actually planning for Diwali lighting and celebrations.

Restrictions on fireworks were heartbreaking for all but they hoped to make good with lighting under the circumstances.

A well-lit home lifts the spirit of everyone like no other.

Make a Plan First

Before you make a beeline for the market, online or offline, to buy those designer diyas or LED lights, make a plan for how you will decorate your home. Which are areas that need compulsory Diwali lighting decoration. The front door? Balcony? The puja room/temple at home? The living space? Any dark corner in particular?

It is preferable to use traditional items like diyas and lanterns as well as modern LED lights to give the home a thematic visual appeal.

For example, use diyas and lanterns in the front door and puja room but deck up the balcony with the latest LED lights.

Diyas never Go out of Fashion

Diyas come in various shapes and sizes these days. Earthen diyas are environment friendly, reusable, and quite cheap. They are made creatively in the shapes of rose, sunflower, or lotus and can be used on the main door. Esthetically pleasant designs are also easily available. Shapes of Om, Lakshmi, Ganesha, petals and leaves, and various other designer diyas are available in plenty these days.

Using these well-designed diyas in the different places of the home you can create a visually appealing and pleasant environment. You can also customise it a bit if you are in the mood to get creative. Just get some acrylic paint and a brush and let your creative juices flow.

You can also try floating your diyas and candles in a large bowl of water. Surround them with some rose petals and marigold flowers and fill the air with a mild fragrance. You will love how fresh your home smells and feels after this!

Diwali Lanterns are Perennial Favourites

Another great way to light up the home is by using lanterns. A plethora of designs is available for lanterns. Pick out a nice lamp in metal or paper that will emit a kaleidoscopic effect on your walls. Lanterns are also great ways to light up balconies, windows, and front doors.

Children can be also involved in making lanterns at home with coloured, translucent, decorative papers. Accessories like ribbons, embroidered cloths, and decorative stars can also be used to enhance the esthetic appeal.

Children will appreciate a sense of involvement and enthusiasm if they get to make lanterns, draw rangoli, and help in decorating the home.

Battery Operated Lights

Battery-operated lights typically flood the market before the festive season. These lights come in all kinds of shapes, sizes and colours. They are also very versatile because you can place them anywhere.
