5 Chic Home Decor Ideas Using Candles

Transforming your home doesn’t necessarily have to be time-consuming or expensive. Even the simplest home décor ideas can change the feel of a space, from new indoor plants or a statement lamp to on-trend cushions and - of course - using candles.

Candles are a great way to style your interior - they come in a range of colors, shapes, sizes, and scents, they bring the sparkle, and they’re easier on your budget than a complete indoor overhaul.

We take a look at five home décor ideas using candles that you can use to - quite literally - change your space in minutes.

Make a statement with pillar candles

Pillar candles come in a variety of heights and widths. We love bunching a load of different sizes together to make a real statement - and you can even match them to your room’s color theme. Try bunching your pillar candles on your hearth, creating a standout table centerpiece, or place them on a sideboard to add glow to your room.

Add elegance with taper candles

Tall and slender taper candles add a real elegance to your home. Try mixing and matching different taper candle holders for that eclectic look, or create a seasonal feel using a variety of colors that match the time of year. When dotted around your interior, taper candles are also perfect for parties and entertaining.

Feel-good floating candles

Floating candles can provide the wow factor, especially as they reflect their light in water. If you have vases of different sizes, putting a few of them together, each with a floating candle, instantly catches the eye. Alternatively, a large bowl of different colored floating candles in the center of your table makes a real impact.

Metallic ball candles

Metallic ball candles are on-trend right now. When lit, they create an ambient shine that can fill a room. Window sills, mantle pieces, and sideboards are great locations for ball candles, and we also love mixing them with pillar candles for a contrasting feel.

Fill your room with the fragrance of scented candles

Scents can transport you to a completely different place and time. That’s why scented candles are so wonderful to have in your home. You could choose a seasonal scent that reflects the outdoors, a fragrance that reminds you of a particular moment, person, or occasion - and place scented candles in your bathroom for true calm and relaxation.
