When the light plays hide and seek through the interlaces of the jaali window, the place becomes magical!

CNC cutting designs are the new cool in home interiors. CNC aka Computer Numerical Control (CNC) cutting is a design material that uses a computer-controlled cutting machine that typically cuts various materials such as wood, composites, aluminium, steel, plastics, glass and foams to create versatile design elements. Most popularly known as ‘jaali’, CNC cutting designs are finding a new way into the Indian home interiors market. However, the design element has been present in the country since the Mughal era, when intricately carved marble and other types of stones were used to create jaalis. The current home interiors scene depicts a new form of CNC cutting designs. They are fancier, easier to develop and often practical for many design reasons. Let us take you into the intricate world of jaali designs that have been ruling our clients’ hearts and our designers’ blueprints. 

1. Use CNC Cutting Designs To Separate Your Dining Cum Living Room

These days, most living rooms come with an attached dining area. Thus you can separate the two regions without permanently blocking or demarcating them by using jaali partitions. You can use different types of jaali partitions such as single partition or folding jaali partitions. The main benefit of using such partitions instead of a wall or a curtain is that the jaali patterns allow a clutter-free division that doesn’t obstruct the view from the living room and the dining corner.

2. CNC Cutting Design For Mandir Is A Popular Choice

One of the most popular uses of CNC cutting design is for the pooja units at home. The jaali screens are perfect for ventilation. Thus pooja units or praying units that require diyas or incense sticks can use jaali partitions to let the smoke get ventilated through the open geometric patterns. Beyond the practical use of CNC cutting design for mandir, these cutting designs also help develop great looking pooja units for Indian homes.

Just like the old Mughal era, you can sport jaali work on your windows if you are up for an Arabic style interior. This Arabic jaali design will be ideal for small windows or ventilation areas in open rooms. The use of delicate jaali on the small window openings can add an artistic angle to your home. You can also go ahead with jaali decorations if you already have an Indian periodic style interior design at your place.
