Candles can add aesthetic value to any area. Not only that, but they can also make it all warm and cozy– even when they are unlit. There’s a high chance that you’ve already tried using candles to decorate your home if you are a seasoned home maker. If not, then it’s time that you learn to use candles. Here are some really great tips on how you can use candles to decorate your interior.
CHOOSING THE SPOT
Candles can topple over, which is why you’d need to make sure to place them on a sturdy surface. Remember that curtains can easily start fire, so always remember to place them in a sturdy surface. One thing that you’d need to remember about candles is that they are very attractive to kids, and kids will reach out if you don’t place the candles high enough. Another thing that you need to remember is that curtains can easily catch fire, so be careful and don’t place the candles near them.
THE RIGHT VARIETY
If you took a look online, you’d know that there are a lot of candle colors and scents to choose from. It may get confusing, so you’d want to choose something that matches your home decor to make it easy. One of the greatest ways to decorate your house is to use contrasting colors, such as a black candle against a white wall. Another thing that I really like is using black floating candles on a nice bowl, which makes a great decorating piece.
To have an easier time choosing the candle’s scent, go for something very subtle. Strong scents might interfere with other smells, and might mess up the scent coming from other things. Scented candles are really not advised for people with asthma, so you might want to stay away from those if someone in the house is asthmatic.
KEEP THEM SAFE
One of the leading causes of fire is when children reach for the candles and accidentally topple them over, so make sure that your candles can’t be reached by little hands. Another way of candle safety is checking on a burning candle often. To be sure, you can also use a candle holder to make the candles sturdy.
