4 factors to consider while renovating for Durga Puja

Navratri and its nine sparkling days are almost here. Durga Puja is synonymous with Navratri. It’s a grand celebration of Goddess Durga’s glorious victory over evil that helped restore peace and dharma, a joyous time that is celebrated with much enthusiasm and fanfare across India.

Hence, with the festivals being around the corner and the advent of winter fast approaching, now is the perfect opportunity to give your home a festive makeover, just in time for Durga Puja and other festivals thereafter. 

Here are 4 things to keep in mind while renovating your home before the fun begins:

Structural Groundwork

Monsoons in India can be harsh and cause damage to your home. Hence, before thinking about doing anything aesthetically to your interiors, get the existing systems checked. Get any electrical or plumbing work completed before moving on to add new wallpaper or paint. Fill in any long standing cracks and leaking gaps in the doors and window frames with a plastering mix of lime and cement. You can’t go wrong with using brands like Double Bull cement, the best cement in India for house construction which consists of high-performance concrete. All this will ensure that your home’s structural work is up to date and winter-proof as well.

Time Management

With Durga Puja on the horizon and you trying to carry on living around the renovation process as normally as possible, having a strict schedule in place will help prevent chaos and save time and money. This will also aid in breaking down the renovation project into phases, such as “kitchen makeover”, “living room reworks”, “puja room renovation”, and having a specific timeline and schedule for each section on your agenda. 

Weather Conditions

When you’re planning to renovate, the local weather conditions and terrain are an important factor to consider. Weather in northeastern states, such as Assam and West Bengal, varies from tropical to subtropical making it humid for most of the year, hence it is recommended to have a focus on waterproofing the home during renovations. Whereas the climate in the western states is arid to semi-arid, making the weather dry and hot, hence focusing on effective ventilation measures would prove to be beneficial in the long run.

Favorable Lighting

With the ability to largely affect the mood of a room, lighting is an important element to consider when renovating a space. During this current scenario, when you’re celebrating the festivities in the safety of your home, ensure that your renovated abode has a warm and bright ambiance. Get the electrical wiring checked and make sure all plug points are located in the safest, most accountable spots. Consider getting the latest atmospheric lighting solutions that will enable you to create a more lively and comfortable environment at home.   

And above all, it’s vital that you observe strict safety and hygiene protocols during your renovations – for the workers as well as the rest of your family. 

Lastly, no festival in India is complete without joyous vibes and spending quality time with loved ones. So add some personal touches during the renovation and make your home extra warm, welcoming, and festive-ready. May the divine blessings of Maa Durga fill your beautiful home and heart with abundant happiness, peace, prosperity, health, and safety. 

Shubho Durga Puja!
