Candles have been a stable of interior design and decoration for ages. Not only are these wonderful objects super functional in providing a back-up for when the power company lets us down, but they also serve a range of other uses whilst fulfilling aesthetic needs as well. 

Lighting candles can completely change the atmosphere of any room, making it either more romantic, more relaxed, or more somber, if that is what you are going for. Depending on the context and the types of candles you use, you can transform a room. Scented candles also improve the quality of the air you smell around you, and decorative candles improve the quality of the interior scenery. 

There is absolutely no doubt that candles have a range of benefits for your home, but these objects can often be expensive, and people sometimes have the idea that you need a great volume of them to make any significant impact. Today, we will debunk these myths by looking at some ideas to economically include candles in your home for maximum aesthetic and functional effect!

When candles are placed in strategic areas, they will have more of an effect. Here we can see a row of candles in the windowsill next to the bathtub, where it will create just the right mood for a relaxed bath.

Even when you only have small candles, you can increase their impact by picking bright and cheerful ones. Even better, picked scented ones!

6. Not a floating trend.

We can remember the popularity of floating candles in the 90s, when you would rarely find a pool party without these guys drifting about. However, it seems like this invention is still relevant today.

A lovely bowl can be filled with water and these floating candles for a beautiful scene that won't set you back too much. 

Or you can use bodies of water already at your disposal, like a pond. You won't need many candles, as a few spots of fire on water is impressive enough in its own. 

7. Balanced minimalism.

9. Floral decoration.

Carved and decorated candles can make a big impact. You will need much fewer candles that are decorated to make the same impact as with several plain ones.
