Get ready to apply some of these low budget Indian style pooja room designs to your home.

What Factors Affect the Cost of Your Pooja Room Design?

Look out for size, materials, finishes and customisation

#1: Size

At the risk of stating the obvious, the cost of an Indian style pooja room is determined by its size. The bigger the pooja room or the pooja unit, the more it costs. However, it’s not the only factor that will affect a pooja unit’s cost, which brings us to the next point.  

#2: Materials 

The material used to make the interior design of a pooja room, including wall units, has a determining effect on their price. For instance, wood costs more than glass, jaali or plywood. Marble, granite or any other natural stone will cost more than wood. Thus, a grand glass pooja room would still cost less than a small marble mandir!

#3: Finishes

Most middle class families in India would want Indian style pooja room designs that are within their budget. A low cost pooja room design is more than the materials that go into making the pooja room. You’ve to account for the outer finishes as well. For instance, acrylic and PU paint finish will cost more than laminate or membrane finish. Also, a pooja unit wall tile cost will be lesser than a coat of wall paint in the pooja unit design.

#4: Customisation

Customised furniture costs more than ready-to-install modular furniture. This rule of thumb applies to all kinds of furniture, and even in the case of Indian style pooja room designs, there’s no exception. If you want your pooja room cupboard made to fit a particular space, it would cost you more than picking one from our catalogue or a local store. 

Now that you have a clear understanding of what affects the price of a pooja unit design, let’s take a look at some interesting pooja room designs for an Indian style interior under ₹1 lakh from #LivspaceHomes. Moreover, we’ll break down each of these designs so that you can understand why they are affordable.
