Significance of Name Plates in Indian Culture
In India, a house is not just a building where people live, it is much more than that. Every single member living in the house connects himself or herself with their home, feels emotional about it. Even if they are living in a leased home or rented house, they want it to be a part of their personality. This is the reason why while purchasing one’s own home, they lay emphasis on the name plate.
A name plate is considered quite important for every house, whether you are living in a small flat or have a lavish bungalow. Sometimes it can have the name of the eldest person of the family, giving the home their name, name of the breadwinner of the family, the lady of the house, or every single person living in the house if it is a small family. Whatever the name plate says, it has to look beautiful and different from what others have on the entrance of their homes. If you are still wondering why your home needs a name plate or you have not installed one yet on the entrance, here is why you should get one.
Much more than just a name plate
A name plate is not just a board with your name and address written on it, but it is a part of your identity and the people living in the house. For Indians, it is a form of marking the day when they entered the new house, giving respect to the elders by mentioning their name on it and identity to every member of the family. Apart from this, many other aspects make it essential to choose the name plates carefully. One such aspect is the Vastu behind adding a name plate. It is said that if your home does not have a name on the gate, opportunities might miss out on you.
Along with this, it adds a welcoming touch to the entrance of your home. A house without a name written on the gate or without such identity has a bit of an uninviting feel to it. People start making an impression about everyone living there which is why go for something more suitable to your taste. It can be a handmade brass name plate, a glass name plate for home, or even something out of the box like carving on stones or rocks. By putting up a name on the entrance of your house, you add a touch of belongingness, calling this house your home.
Handcrafted name plates that go well with any décor
Finding a perfect name plate for the house is important. It is the first thing that anyone will notice about your home while passing by or visiting your home. Go for the name plate that reflects the soul of your home in it. If you love to keep things simple, a classy looking handmade wooden name plate is perfect for you.
