Diwali, the lovely festival of lights and happiness is here. Celebrating Diwali with friends and family is something everybody revels in. Diwali home decoration will make it more festive, but it may take some time and efforts, which can be stressful at times. Here are a few tips on helping to make your home beautiful, without spending a lot of money.
1. House cleaning comes first. This means sweeping, mopping, dusting, vacuuming, whatever it takes to get the dirt out and let the light shine in. Don’t forget the rugs, the furniture, fans and wall hangings, along with the curtains. Remember, Diwali is also known as the Festival of Lights, and you want your home to be a shining example.
2. Make sure you have all leaks and electrical problems repaired. You want everything in the house to be in working order, and to stay that way. Once they are repaired, it’s just one or more less things to worry about.
3. Colorful paintings for the walls and some stained glass objects like vases, figurines, or picture frames can add value to your Diwali home decoration. You can buy these at home stores and road side stands, for about Rs 150 -200 a piece.
4. Depending on what colors and hues you choose, new lampshades can add so much more to your rooms. A floor lamp may add dimension to a room, but a table or ceiling light can add multiple tones or shades and improve the aura of your room or rooms. From paper scrap to stained glass, these can also be found in home stores, starting at Rs 100 a piece.
5. New curtains “add sparkle to Diwali,” says Rajnish Kumar, senior merchandise manager for a leading retailer in Bangalore. “Bring home bright, inexpensive furnishings and festival merchandise from your local home stores.” Easy to hang curtains are readily available for Rs 200 and up.

6. Stores are flooded with diya holders, many that can be placed inside the house and/or by the door. The traditional diya compliments the designs and colors of the holders, and are available in clay and wrought iron. The brightness of the room is beautifully enhanced by this combination.
7. Make sure you stop at the local nursery to pick up some plants. A corner inside your home with the green of nature only makes the festivities more lovely and memorable, especially if you light a diya next to it.
8. Potpourri and floating floral scented candles are wonderful little additions to your Diwali home decoration during the Festival of Lights. Aromatic and colorful, these are widely available for as little as Rs 150.
9. Perhaps your home is still showing the effects from the monsoons. Wallpaper can help make things look better. Usually picking one side will make a big difference. You can put it up fairly quickly, and, depending on the design and color, can lighten up the room for a long time after the festival. It gives the room a brightness and a theme. With companies who can do this for you in a timely manner at reasonable rates with festival offers, it will be no time at all before your home shows the benefits of your tastes.
10. The beautiful rangoli is the final design you add to your Diwali celebrations. Even though it has become an uncommon tradition, the rangoli will be a colorful addition to bring in the New Year, and everyone who sees this will remember it for years to come. If you’ve never made a rangoli, much less know how to make one, don’t worry. There are color-and-stencil kits that are readily available, and you can also buy rangoli stickers that will stay down for a long time.
With a little planning, you can do all of this in a day. So get your lists ready, and get set to bring in the New Year with style and beauty.
