Light Up Your Space: Using Candles in Home Decorationnovember 10, 2017
Candles are one of most universal accessories in interior decoration. Thanks to a blinking diffused light, they create a unique warm atmosphere and add a new dimension to your home.What’s more – they are suitable for each space. It does not matter what style is your home, classic or modern – they will emphasize its individual character.
Have a look at the below original inspirations how to use candles at home.
Create a ‘candle cluster’ corner
The candle cluster has breezed in and out of fashion over the years, but now it is very much back in. You can play around with a whole load of candles and arrange them as you wish.
Place candles at the window to create an impression of extra light during short dark days.
Use large jars as centerpieces
Try placing a candle inside a glass container (jar or bottle) and group them together. The light will reflect off the glass, and give a rustic feel to your living room. You can also place multiple candles in a decorative bowl or on a wooden plank.
Make a faux fireplace
If you happen to have an unused fireplace, now may be the time to bring it back to life. Rather than getting a whole new fitting, you could pop a candle cluster inside it. That way, when you light the candles, it will look as though you have a roaring fire all the same.
Hang your candles
Decorate bare walls using candle holders made especially for this or hang them above the table. Wall holders and candle chandeliers come in a wide variety of materials, colors, designs, and sizes to suit your home.
This gives you the functionality of light with an artistic feel.
Create a romantic bedroom
Why limit Valentine’s Day to just one day? Your bedroom can pulse with romantic vibes all year-round with the right candle placement. One simple way to adorn your bedroom is to place two candleholders on opposite sides of your bed frame. This will help you to relax after a long day at the office. Candleholders placed on several cabinets can also provide a serene feel for your bedroom when you’re not in the mood for bright lighting. For added visual effects, use ornament candleholders with openwork pattern for a beautiful shadow play on the wall.
Add zen feeling to your bathroom
Don’t neglect the use of candles in your bathroom either. Place them around your tub and in front of the mirrors.
Candlelit your kitchen
A kitchen is very often the center of the house, where everybody meets. Why not enhance the homey atmosphere with a few candles? You can place them at the window or in the middle of the table, using kitchen utensils as tea light holders.
