Wall-mounted, compact Pooja spaces
In the present scenario, the flat system and the increased demand for housing have caused some severe space crunch in most of the cities. Also, a trend of compact homes has also begun to emerge. Wall-mounted pooja spaces are most common in most of the households.

Keeping it this simple and plain would add a touch of elegance to it. You can also add some beautiful, simple wallpaper with holy motifs like temple bells in the background. This will also enhance the effect and aura of the space.
Keeping it clean, the most important thing
No one wants their home to be cluttered, especially the pooja room. A pooja room is a sacred, holy space in your home and cluttering it would only destroy its strong and positive aura. So, avoid adding clutter to this little and important holy space in your house.
Keep it organised, clean and minimal. Do not deck up things which are unnecessary. You must also avoid unnecessary decorations to keep it elegant. For various things you need to perform pooja, add drawers so they are safe and organised hence adding to the tidiness of the space.
Make sure that the shelves, drawers and other spaces in the pooja room are used only for storing the pooja related items. Additionally, you must also avoid keeping too many idols or images in the pooja room. Rather, keep it simple.
Mastering to set up a dedicated Pooja Room
A dedicated pooja room is something that everyone would desire in their home however, due to the availability of space, this is not achieved by all. In the homes where there is a lot of space available, you can set up a dedicated pooja room while if you’re living in a house which has restricted space, other options are available.
A dedicated pooja room is generally seen in the houses having joint families. While it adds a certain sacred space and an added serene and calm atmosphere to your home, a dedicated pooja room also gives you space to set up a complete serene space dedicated for meditation.
If you are setting up a dedicated pooja room, consider adding marbles and glasswork to give it a contemporary finish. Keeping it clean and spacious is one of the most important things to consider while you can add one or multiple pedestals as your choice but remember to keep it de-cluttered.
