Candles are a great way to set the mood and bring warmth into any environment. They can be great additions to your coffee table or staircase, whether you are celebrating a special event, welcoming a guest to your home, or trying to save on electricity.
When used as decorative pieces, candles can light up a room and lend a more romantic, cozy vibe. Not only do they smell great, but they considerably enhance the feeling of your space. Scents have been linked to the parts of the brain where you feel emotion, meaning that by choosing the right candles to light, you can help yourself relax.
Candles are also wonderful as decorative pieces, seeing as they come in a wide variety of colours and shapes. Here are a few great ways to decorate different parts of your home with candles:
The kitchen usually exudes a warm, homey vibe. After all, it is where food is made and the entire family comes together to enjoy meals. You can put a few candles in the middle of your dining table as a centrepiece, especially if you have a beautiful candle holder. You can also add some vibrancy and colour to your dining table with a wide selection of different heights and hues. If you wish to enjoy nothing but the aroma of delicious home-cooked meals in the kitchen, opt for unscented candles that boast pretty colours.
There’s nothing quite as luxurious as being surrounded by stout candles as you take a bath. Candles will add a romantic and cozy feel to your bathroom while you enjoy a nice, steamy bath. Whether you are bathing by yourself or with a lover, candles will add a romantic touch. Rose, lavender, or chamomile scented candles are best placed at the corner of your bathtub.
Your bedroom is your own personal space. Choose your candles carefully as this is the room where you spend most of your free time alone. If you so happen to not be alone, however, the bedroom is a great place to inspire romance. What better way to do so than with candles? Consider light scents such as vanilla or even strawberry. Light florals that you enjoy are also wonderful choices. These candles can be placed on your bedside table or on your windowsills.
The living room is where you tend to relax or entertain your guests. This is a great place to use more lively scented candles with fun colours. Choose a scent that best fits your preferences and place them out of the way from your center table, where all the action will happen. Consider placing them on your windowsill or by the sofa on a side table.
Your patio is a great place to showcase your wooden or metal candleholders. Lanterns will look amazing on your patio from anyone looking into your house from the outside as well. Candles will be able to light your outside area and give your yard a cozy, comfortable feeling. You can create a great glow from the outside of your home in order to make it look beautiful and inviting. This is perfect for cool fall nights spent gazing at the stars!
