Confused? Read on to know how you can effectively use candles for home décor
Choose your candles carefully
Don’t go the long, white ones that you generally find in an Indian home. But instead pick bright and colourful (and thick) ones that don’t ideally need a candle stand.
Find some tables and countertops to put your candles
Ideal options are coffee tables, side tables, dining tables, kitchen countertops, and bathroom counters are the best places to put them. Avoid putting them on some place high like the top of a book shelf.
Position your candles
Some ways to try are:
- Clusters consisting of 2 small candles, 1 medium size candle, and 1 large candle.
- Randomly placing candles of any size anywhere.
- Place 3 candles of the same size in a row of 3, each next to one another.
- Place 3 candles of different sizes next to each other in a row of 3.
Whether grouped for drama in the living room, paired in candlesticks on the dining table, or snuggled in coloured glass votives on the mantel, candles add elegance to your home.
