Home and garden decor is very important for all of us. When it comes to decorating our home, most of us come up with creative ideas to decorate our interiors but forget all about the outdoors. Gone are the days when people would use a couple of flowers pots to decorate their yard or patio. Now days, outdoor candle holders are something everyone is talking about. After all, why not think about the ambience they create when you’re entertaining friends and family or the serenity the glow of candle light creates when enjoying a relaxing evening at home?
Are you confused about what type of outdoor candle holders will suit your garden environment? Well, of course, the market offers a wide variety of outdoor candle holders and lanterns, but choosing the best holders for your home is an easy task if you follow these tips before buying them. Let’s have a look.
• As outdoor candle holders are meant to be kept outside of the house, they are more likely to face a lot of dirt and moisture compared to the ones that are used inside. So the first thing you should check is durability. For example, if you are thinking of buying a hanging candle holder, make sure that the quality of the metal holder is good. The shaft should be strong enough to support holder’s weight for a long time. Once you think that the holder is strong enough, you should check its structure. Do not buy something too delicate for your outdoors. Apart from hanging types, you can choose stand based outdoor candle holders too. They come in various colors, shapes and sizes, particularly designed to light a patio, terrace, garden or pathways.
• The application of outdoor candle holders is gaining immense popularity with more people entertaining at home in the outdoors. They are also being used for decoration for events like weddings, birthdays, and holidays. The main difference between regular holders and event specific holders is that the later ones are usually delicate but highly structured and crafted to give their surroundings a superb touch unique to that event. Always keep in mind that event specific items may be available during a particular season only. It’s always good to purchase such decorative items in advance.
• With outdoor candle holders, you can decorate your outdoors in many innovative ways. For example, you can think of putting some candles in your swimming pool, pond or other outdoor water feature to make it sparkle beautifully in the reflected glow of the candlelight. You can place one or several on the table for outdoor dining providing lovely, soft ambient lighting and saving on electricity, or greet your guests as they come to your gate with a standing candle lantern. You can light the paths of your garden or different areas of your yard with standing outdoor candle holders or lanterns. Ideas can be countless but you should choose them based on the theme that you wish to carry out in your outdoor room.
