The sacred month of Ramadan is here! We wait all year round for this beautiful month as we get to spend time with our family and friends, pray with them and break our fasts with them. It is that month where we all come together and connect with the almighty!
Home décor plays an essential role, to get into the Ramadan spirit. So, here are a few tips to get your home Ramadan and Eid ready!
Clean up- This step is essential in any home décor process. Start by cleaning up your home and outdoor areas thoroughly. A clean and clutter-free home is more conducive to spiritual thoughts. A clean house will also be more peaceful and warm. Clean up your garden and outdoor areas as your guests would like to sit outside in the evening for Iftar.
Lighting- Lighting is an essential Ramadan décor. Add string lights, colourful lanterns and lamps in different corners of your home.
Banners and Cutouts- You could add Ramadan Kareem banner in your living room and other Star and crescent moon cutouts to decorate the sitting area in your home. Involve your kids in this project. They will be more involved and have fond memories of Ramadan as they grow up.
Countdown- Create an Eid countdown to track days until the final day to get the whole family excited for Eid.
Carpets- Layout beautiful carpets that serve as praying mats and create a warm festive ambience in your home.
Candles and vases- Candles and vases can turn any room from boring to beautiful in minutes. Place them strategically in different corners of your home and bring dead corners to life!
Stock up- Stock up your home with food, cutlery and crockery in advance! Don’t go running last minute when you are fasting and are already low on energy.
The good deed box- Ask your kids to make a good deed box and put in little money from their pocket money in it. Keep this box in your living area so that even your guests can contribute if they want. At the end of the month, do some good deeds with the money collected.
There are many more home decorating ideas that you can use along with the ones mentioned above to get your home Ramadan ready and get into the festive cheer. So, go ahead, get your home ready and make some everlasting memories with your family in the process. Ramadan Kareem!
