Tips to Elevate Your Home Decor with Decorative Candles

1. Selecting the Perfect Decorative Candles for Your Home

When choosing decorative candles to enhance your home's ambience, consider the overall aesthetics and your personal style preferences. The size, colour, and shape of the candles, as well as the scent composition, significantly contribute to the atmosphere you wish to create. LMJ Candles offers a wide range of exquisite handmade scented candles to suit various tastes and complement any interior design.

  • Colour: Determine the ideal colour palette for your candles that harmonise with your existing home décor. Neutral tones, such as white or cream, can easily blend into different styles, while bold, vibrant colours make a striking statement and add a pop of visual interest.
  • Size: Select the appropriate size and scale of candles based on the space and the design you want to create. Large, statement pieces work well as focal points in spacious rooms, whereas smaller candles suit more intimate settings or subtler decorative accents.
  • Shape: Explore various candle shapes, such as pillar, taper, votive, or the enchanting Teddy Bear Candles from LMJ Candles. Each shape brings a unique visual quality and imparts a distinctive atmosphere to your home.
  • Fragrance: Choose a scent that resonates with your personal preferences and complements your home's ambience. Opt for soothing, calming fragrances for relaxation or invigorating, uplifting scents to energise your space.

2. Styling Techniques for Decorative Candles

Incorporating decorative candles into your home décor can be as simple or elaborate as you desire. Here are some styling techniques to elevate the atmosphere of any room:

  • Grouping: Arrange candles of varying heights, shapes, or colours together to create an eye-catching display. Groupings can be symmetrical or asymmetrical, depending on the style you wish to convey.
  • Centrepieces: Decorative candles make for stunning table centrepieces, whether for special occasions or everyday dining. Combine candles with other decorative elements, such as flowers, greenery, or ornaments, to create a visually appealing, vibrant arrangement.
  • Layering: Play with depth and dimension by layering candles on multi-level platforms, such as shelves, mantels, or tiered trays. This technique adds visual intrigue and draws attention to your curated candle collection.
  • Mixing and Matching: Mix styles, shapes, and textures for an eclectic yet harmonious look. Pair traditional pillar candles with modern geometric shapes or juxtapose smooth candles with textured ones for added visual interest.

3. Candle Care and Maintenance

Proper care and maintenance of your decorative candles ensure their longevity and optimal fragrance release. To make the most of your LMJ Candles, follow these essential practices:

  • Wick trimming: Trim the wick to approximately 5mm before each use to ensure a cleaner, more consistent burn. A trimmed wick helps minimise smoke, soot residue and prolongs the life of your candle.
  • Burn time: Allow your candle to burn for enough time to form an even pool of liquid wax across the entire surface during the first use. This process prevents tunnelling and ensures a consistent burn each time you light the candle.
  • Storage: Store your candles in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, heat, and humidity. Proper storage helps preserve the fragrance, colours, and shape of your candles.
  • Extinguishing: Use a candle snuffer or gently blow out the flame to extinguish your candles. Avoid using water to extinguish candles, as it may cause the hot wax to splatter and negatively affect future burns.

4. Candle Safety Tips

Careful attention to candle safety is critical for maintaining a secure and enjoyable home environment. Keep the following safety tips in mind when using your decorative candles:

  • Burn candles on a stable, heat-resistant surface to ensure a steady flame and minimise the risk of accidents.
  • Never leave burning candles unattended. Make sure to extinguish your candles before leaving the room, going to sleep, or going outdoors.
  • Keep candles clear of any nearby flammable items, including curtains, bedding, and papers. Also, avoid placing candles near drafts, vents, or ceiling fans, as the shifting air currents may cause the flames to flicker irregularly or flare up.
  • Keep candles out of reach of children and pets. Ensure they are placed on high, secure surfaces or enclosed within lanterns or votives.
