Many homeowners love placing decorative idols in their living area to perk up space and make it look nice and impressive. Usually, two types of idols are kept in the living room. These can be either sacred idols of Ganesha or Buddha or it can be any other decorative idol. Placing these idols in the living room area brings grace and elegance to space. It also brings a positive vibe to the area.
Here, let us understand how placing these idols can improve the look of your living room area.
- If you are planning to place a Lord Ganesha idol in this area, know that it must be placed such that it brings goodness and peace in your home. The best place to keep this idol is right opposite to the main door of your home. It brings prosperity in homes and wards off all evil from your home.
- You can keep sacred idols as well as decorative idols in a beautifully carved showcase in the living room. When placing a lot of idols, remember to keep a minimum 1-inch distance between these idols. When looking for decorative idols for your living room, pay attention to its overall décor. If you have done up your living room in traditional Indian style, you can choose idols that best represent this style. Similarly, if the room has been decorated as per modern décor trends, choose idols that go well with the same décor style so that a seamless look is created.
- If you are placing idols with meena or mirror work on the shelves, you can highlight them by installing ambient lights above. This way, the idols will seem bathed in warm light and mirrors and meena work on them will glow and look beautiful. It can become the focal point of your living room area.
- You can use idols made up of a variety of materials like silver, copper, brass, clay, wood, and more. Every material has a unique look and can add a lot of elegance and class to the area where it is placed.
Keeping all these points in mind can help you uplift the look of your living room.
