How many of you believe in Vaastu? Many of our day, begins with prayers. What if we don’t have a specific space for worship? If you are someone who believes in Vaastu, then definitely your house will have a pooja room.
Every corner in the house holds a special significance in Vaastu. Today I’m writing about the importance of the pooja room and the different types of pooja room designs. Pooja Room is a hub of positive energy in the house. It is a sacred place with its own aura. Placing the pooja room in the right direction and at the right corner keeps the negativity out of the house.
If you don’t have any idea of how and where to place the pooja room, fret not I will help you through the process of making your pooja room the hub of a positive aura.
Below are some of the usually followed Vaastu rules for the pooja room.
Direction and Placement
The best location for the pooja room in the house is in the northeast direction. Avoid locating the pooja room in the south. While offering prayers, always ensure that you face the north or the east.
Never place the pooja room below the staircase or there should be no space for placing anything above the pooja room and don’t place the pooja room against the bathroom wall. If you are planning for a duplex or triplex house, make sure to place the pooja room in the East or North direction on the ground floor.
Pooja Room Designs
Pooja Room designs vary from house to house. It depends on the structure of the house or the individual. Nowadays, there are more trendy designs available for pooja Rooms. I am listing some of the popular designs based on the placement. I,e individual rooms, self-standing mandirs, pooja corners and wall-mounted units.
Some homes come with a small room dedicated for worship, and this becomes the individual pooja room. Many of us prefer having a dedicated pooja room for worship. If you have enough space, make sure to inform the architect for a separate Pooja Room. Having a separate pooja room in the house acts as the centre of positivity and you will not have to find a place to place the idols. Pooja room, placed in the right place, increases the elegance of the house. These individual pooja rooms can be designed in many types.
I have mentioned the two most popular designs of Individual style designs.
Temple style Pooja Room
This is one of the traditional and most popular pooja room door designs pictures in which the house pooja room looks just like a temple. This type of pooja room design looks good in a large house.
Temple style pooja room design, will have a huge slab for placing the idols. Nowadays many of them are opting for false ceilings to give pooja room a temple-like look.

Self-standing Pooja Units
A self-standing unit is an independent pooja unit that can be installed anywhere in the house. These are modular units with sleek designs. These types of designs don’t require as much space as individual pooja rooms. Even the modular design pooja rooms come with plenty of storage space. These types of pooja units are suitable for apartments with small or limited space.
Self-standing pooja units can be designed according to the size and the taste of the owner. These self-standing pooja rooms are in trend nowadays due to their limited occupancy of space and a lot of designs to choose from.
Converted Pooja Corner
Many of the builders will not provide an option for Pooja rooms. You can convert any space into the Pooja corner, by providing some partition, so that the place can be reserved for the purpose. They do not require as much space as a dedicated pooja room and still, acts serve the purpose of the pooja room and change the look of the corner or the house.
Wall Mounted Pooja Room
When space is very less opt for wall-mounted pooja Rooms. These wall-mounted units are perfect for small homes, with minimal walls. They come in various designs and colours.
These are the most commonly opted pooja room designs by many. If you are planning to construct the house, and if you have any pooja room design in the mind, let me know in the comment section below.
