The candlelight has a unique effect and is an inexhaustible source of warmth. Fortunately, they ceased to be mere utilitarian objects, of which we only remember when blackouts become indispensable accessories for our environment.

They reveal a lot about our personality and our tastes in addition to providing an extra dose of magic and enchantment. And there's more: they tend to be symbol of elegance and power.

Today, we can find different sizes, textures, colors, or flavors, there are classic, geometric or modern designs, and elaborate wax or gel. In the market there are a wide range of features and options.

Furthermore, we can group them, sort them in decorative patterns, place them in chandeliers or inside a special container. The diversity of effects we can achieve is endless.

Decorative element of the first order

As important as choosing the type of candles, is to find the place where and how to place them. It is not saturating the atmosphere, or short stay when illuminated with candles. In small rooms, for example, one or two look good in low cabinet or a small dresser with mirror.

In large spaces, the amount and type depend on the candle effect we want to achieve. The most common is to place them in a group on a table or as a decorative complement any furniture. You can also select some nice candlesticks standing, or use those that are attached to the wall.

The choice depends on the nature of the overall decor. By illuminating stairs, we can achieve a fun and cozy effect by placing small candles on each step.
