In India, religious festivals are considered to be a huge deal with mandatory celebrations in order. It’s more than just a public holiday, it’s a way of making changes in one’s lives and bettering themselves in every occasion. Diwali is one of the most anticipated festivals in the country with most people gearing up all round to celebrate with elan.
Dubbed as the festival of lights, Diwali (or Deepavali in South India) has families decorating their home with extra finesse right from incorporating serial lights and lamps in and outside their home. Instead of bursting crackers and contributing to noise and air pollution, families are focusing on brightening up their homes with the inclusion of LED lights in every corner. Even bathrooms are getting revamped bearing the spirit of the festival in mind.
From diya-shaped candles to LED lights for that extra aesthetic appeal, here are some easy-to-implement Diwali light decoration ideas.
String Lights with a Pop of Colour:
String lights are considered low cost and decorative enough for that cosy, soft warm glow. They bling up any room, weaving a magical glow perfect for the festive occasion.
- In a living room, string lights can be juggled up in a ball and put in strategic corners, replacing lamp shades.
- For the bedroom, string lights can be laid across the room, with wall hangings that are related to Diwali, added for that extra festive touch. Experiment with different colours of string lights to make it more vibrant.
- Do not leave the bathroom out of the decorative plan. Put a bunch of string lights onto a big glass bowl with fragrant potpourri sprinkled in. This decorative idea ensures that one can continue to feel the spirit of lights in every corner of the house. This impresses guests visiting and appreciating that extra effort to keep the whole theme wholesome.
LED Lights as a Decorative and Energy-Saving Option:
The appeal of LED lights is the fact that they are versatile enough to blend in every house, irrespective of the house design or size. While it takes care of the entire house’s lighting solution, with the extra pizazz added during festivities, they are perfect for transforming one’s bathroom into a well-lit haven that goes beyond its basic facilities.
- Maintain the festive aura throughout by even sprucing up the bathroom with LED lights that resemble candles or traditional mud lamps. Fireless and smokeless, candle-shaped LED lights can be installed around the bathtub to keep up with the festival theme.
- One can get creative with a melange of LED light designs and make them look like firecrackers in the sky. With curved LED lights of different colours, make a rotating fireball on the walls that light up every second. With extra effort, use pearls of LED lights and turn the room’s corners into a bunch of Diwali aerial lights.
- LED strip lights are beginning to get fairly popular now, reserved for those grand evenings. At home, they make for a nice outline of one’s home or added on the window frame as a continuous source of light. For the bathroom, LED strip lights are perfect around the mirror and basin frame. To enhance the Diwali vibe in the bathroom, put a bowl of fresh jasmine on the bathroom counter akin to a spa’s wellness room.
- Adding LED lights, especially in the bathroom area, gives the whole appearance a neat and hygienic look. As the spirit of Diwali requires one to keep everything clean and tidy, focus on keeping the bathroom dry and allow the lighting to complement the whole luxury-meets-style quotient. Keeping the festive spirit in mind, install fixtures that give a clear-cut finish that gels with the LED Diwali lighting around.
Explore with DIY Diwali Floating Candles:
Classy and fragrant, it involves one giving their electrical power a break and lighting up the whole house with multiple candles floating in bowls of water and flowers for that traditional touch. Most homes, even on non-festive days, adopt this decorative method as they give a more authentic vibe in addition to being eco-friendly and cheap. Floating candles or diyas are usually placed in a brass bowl or earthenware bowl, and can be the centre of attraction in one’s house’s entrance, living room, bedroom, and bathroom. To adorn the aesthetics further, set aside an intricately designed rangoli accompanying the bowl of the floral floating candle display.
