Illuminate Your House with The Enchanting Glow of Festive Lights

Diwali, the Festival of Lights, is one of the most vibrant and celebrated festivals in India. Homes and streets come alive with the warm and welcoming glow of festive lights during this time. It is not an unknown fact that the lights during Diwali symbolize the triumph of good over evil, but lighting plays a more pivotal role in Diwali. People associate light with a mesmerizing ambience that envelops everyone in its warm embrace. Adorning the house with lights is a celebration to treasure. But often, it becomes a tussle to decorate your house during Diwali in between all the gatherings and cleaning. While you are running here and there, thinking of ways to decorate your home, you have reached the right place. In this article, we will explore the various types of Diwali lights, learn how to decorate your home with them and discover creative ways to infuse your abode with the magic of Diwali lights. 

Types of Diwali Lights

In the right light, everything looks extraordinary, such as the glamour of festival lights during Diwali. Even lifeless furniture can look delightful with lights wrapped around it. But with an array of options to suit every taste and style, choosing the right one for your home may be bewildering. But fret not, let's explore some of the most popular types together and make this job easy for you: 

Diyas and Oil Lamps: You can never go wrong with Diyas, and you probably already know about these traditional Diwali lights. They are earthen lamps that hold deep cultural and spiritual significance, representing the dispelling of darkness and the triumph of light. Lighting rows of diyas in and around the house is a timeless tradition that connects us with our roots. 

LED String Lights: You must have seen lights wrapped up on trees or railings; the lights used for this purpose are string lights. These are versatile and come in a myriad of colours, so you can simply choose the one that fits your aesthetics. Because of the flexible and adaptable design, you can use these string lights on your balcony, on your stairs, and inside the house conveniently. So if you think this is the decorative light you need, then you can choose from the options available at Orient Electric. Our favourite one has to be the Joylite Pixel String Light. 

LED Rope Lights: Although strip lights are flexible, a much more convenient decorative light for Diwali is a rope light. These are thick, and you can bend them or twist them into unique shapes. Picture LEDs on a long tube; that is precisely what a rope light looks like. As they are longer, you can stretch them up to cover a larger space with a single strand. But are you still confused about where to use them? You can roll them up on your railings and over the trees. These are the ideal outdoor festive lights for Diwali. You can check out the Joylite Rope Light, which comes in both 5-meter and 10-meter versions, on the official website of Orient Electric. 

Curtain Lights: Let us tell you for once and for all that this light is the hero of all decorative lights. These festive LED lights come in many different shapes and sizes. These are the ultimate cherry on top of your Diwali celebrations. These Diwali hanging lights can be used on your balcony or over your curtain. But what makes it so good? The versatility of the shapes of the curtain light is the answer. At Orient Electric, we not only have the common Diya lights for Diwali, but our Joylite Curtain Light collection has LEDs in the shapes of Ganesh Ji and Swastik as well. These are the perfect Diwali decorations for your home. 

Now that you know which decorative light to buy for Diwali, go over to the official website of Orient Electric and order from the multiple options available. We are sure we have one for all your needs. While you wait for your order to arrive, let’s give you some quick tips on how to install Diwali lights at home. 

How to Do Diwali Lighting at Home:

A common question is how to decorate Diwali lights at home. The answer may sound tiring theoretically, but practically doing it will feel like a breeze. Here is how you can hang lights in and around your house for Diwali decoration. 

Planning is the key 

It's easier said than done, we know! Amidst all the cleaning and cooking for Diwali, planning your decorations takes a hit. But we are here to solve this. The planning you need is just to identify the places that are less lit in your house—more precisely, the corners that remain dark. Pick your showpiece or flower vase from the living room, place it in these corners, and then wrap string lights around it. Voila! You just lit up the nooks and corners of your home so easily. 

Light Up the Entryway: Your guests will feel the Diwali vibe the moment they step into your house if you decorate your entrance. While you are already planning to place beautiful diyas around your entrance, you can also use lights for your entryway. Use rope lights on the frames of your door. You can also use them to wrap around the railings of your stairs or on the trees. This not only looks amazing but also gives your guests a more pleasant welcome. 

Indoor Decoration: You can’t leave yours indoors without lighting, right? Warm white lighting can give your whole house a cozy yet festive vibe. Get some curtain lights in different shapes, like a diya or a star, and hang them around your house vertically. A few places you can hang them are on the curtains, on the living room walls, or around your mandir. Do you know what the best part about these lights is? You can also use them on your balcony as an outdoor light. At Orient Electric, you can choose from multiple options from the Joylite Curtain Light series. 

Candles as Centerpieces: Candlelight dinners and cozy gatherings with friends and family are an integral part of Diwali celebrations. Use candles as centerpieces on your dining table or in the living room. 

How to Put Diwali Lights on the Balcony: 

Most of us live in high-rise buildings, and having a garden or backyard to decorate is often felt like a luxury. Thus, putting lights on the balcony becomes one of the most exciting parts of Diwali celebrations. However, even if you are an excellent planner who has it all under control or a last-minute go-getter, you need to have some idea of how to decorate your balcony for Diwali. Here is how you can do it right: 

Glow up your railings: Mix two colours of rope lights, like pink and warm white, wrap them around the railings, and light them up. This gives your balcony an enchanting look and gives you more reasons to hang out on your balcony at night. Our favourite pick this season is the Joylite Rope Light from Orient Electric, with five different colour options. 

Put some life into your plants: While your plants need water during the day to look healthy, during Diwali evenings, make them look even more mesmerizing with lights. Place Diwali lights inside decorative pots with plants, or just put them over your plants and light them up. To amp it up a little, place chairs and tables in the middle of your balcony so your guests can hang out under the stars amongst the sparkle. 

Wall Hangings: Festive sparkle lights can make your balcony the talk of the town. All you need to do is hang your Diwali lights, Diya lights, or star lights on the wall to give a more contemporary yet gleeful look to the entire balcony. 


Diwali lights bring a sense of enchantment and warmth to your home, making it a truly magical festival. By exploring creative ways to infuse your living space with their magic, you can make this Diwali a memorable and visually captivating experience. So, let your creativity shine and celebrate the Festival of Lights in style and splendour! 

In the end, the joy of Diwali is not just about the illumination of the lamps but also the light that shines from our hearts as we share the love, happiness, and togetherness that this festival symbolizes. I wish you a happy Diwali filled with light, joy, and happiness!
