A Complete Candle Holders Selection Guide
One of the simplest ways to spruce up an event or home décor is to pick interesting lighting options. Candles are a great way to brighten up and give a perky and cheerful flair to any dull space. They are widely used to add warmth and also to create a relaxing and soothing ambiance. When using candles to enhance your home décor or any festive occasion, candle holders are an essential element that plays an important role to boost their impact. Candle holders come in a variety of shapes, sizes, designs, colors, materials, and styles that can help you create your desired look but with so many options to choose from it also makes the selection process quite challenging. Like choosing any other décor accent, picking votive candle holders that work well with your candles and interior is not an easy feat. Certain factors should be considered while you shop for crystal candle holders to hold your candles. We have listed some key pointers for you to help you make a sensible decision and opt for holders that are perfect for your needs.
1). Consider the Candle Type
Different interior designs call for different types of candles. The various types of candles give a unique and distinctive touch to your living room, dining room table, or event décor. A specific candle holder stand is usually made to hold only a certain type of candle. Whether you choose pillar candles, taper candles, votive candles or tea light candles, pairing candle holders with appropriate types of candles is essential. For instance, dinner candles or taper candles are tall with a thin or small base, therefore, taper candle holders are required to properly fit these candles and help them stand upright at your dinner tables for a chic and sophisticated look. Similarly, our pillar candle holders have a wider base with a pin in the middle to keep your pillar candles in place. Whereas, votive candle holders and tea light candle holders can be used interchangeably to hold either votive candles or tea light candles as both are typically small in size. Therefore, it is crucial to know the type of candle you plan to use and then choose your candle holders accordingly.
2). Consider the Base Size of the Candle
Another important factor to consider before selecting a candle holder is the base size of the candle. Most people make an impetuous decision and buy a decorative candle holder that appeals to them at first sight without comparing the size of the candle holders to the base of their candles. Whether it is a taper candle or a tea light candle the candle should fit perfectly in the candle holder. A wobbling candle in a bigger sized candle holder cup will look unattractive. For instance, a loose and ill-fitting taper candle in a glass hurricane candle holder is a safety hazard and it also looks unappealing as the candles will tip to one side causing the candle to burn unevenly. Opt for candle holders that give good support to your candles. Similarly, some tea light candles can look out of place when set inside random votive candle holders, there is either too much free space that the candle moves around or the base diameter is not enough to properly set the candle. When looking to buy candle holders it is essential to measure the candle base and know the diameter of the candle holder cup opening to ensure that your candles fit perfectly in the candle holders.
3). Select Appropriate Sized Candle Holders
There is a wide range of candle holders that are available in varying sizes and heights. It is important to carefully examine the size and height of the candle holders before choosing them. If you plan to use long stem candle holders for your wedding table centerpieces, it is important to know the height of the tables and also the height of the candles you intend to use. If large pillar candles are placed on tall pillar candle holders, they will look weird. The height of the candles should be proportionate to the height of the candle holders to give a balanced look to your décor. Our sleek and tall candle holders look mesmerizing and disperse the soft and subtle light evenly into the surroundings which set a romantic and dramatic mood.
Furthermore, it is also important to determine the size and base diameter of the candle holders to make a rational choice. Candle holders are stunning decorative accessories and can be placed anywhere to instantly illuminate the spot. However, it is important to measure the base diameter of the candle holders and choose according to the space available to place them. To add perky decorative accessories to your living room fireplace mantel or to decorate your window ledges for a Christmas party, opt for Christmas Candle holders that are perfectly sized to give a firm and steady support to your candles while still exuding the festive sheen.
4). Consider the Placement
When choosing candle holders, it is crucial to consider their placement. There are different kinds of taper candle holders for indoor and outdoor locations. All types of candle holders can be used for indoor purposes. If you want to enhance your living room, kitchen, dining table room, bedroom, or event venue you should opt from the wide variety of candle holders centerpieces available at efavormart to give an alluring look to all your indoor spots and areas. However, open space venues have that wind element that needs to be taken care of if you plan to use candles to light up the space. An outdoor candle holder is designed to shield the open flame and avert the wind by using glass tubes or cups over the candles. If you are looking to spruce up your outdoor event tables and want to use candles to create an extravagant ambiance, opt for our hurricane candle holders to accentuate the aesthetics of your event décor.
5). Consider the Purpose of Your Candles
When it comes to creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere, candles are a go-to option that magically transforms the space and gives a whimsical feel.

6). Keep your Interior Design in Mind
Candle holders are striking decorative accessories that instantly give a posh and glamorous look to your party tables and home décor. However, picking an inapt design, style or color will make your décor look mismatched and unappealing. It is always important to consider how the shape, style, color, and design can augment your space’s aesthetics.

Our glass pillar candle holders are versatile and can be used as elegant decorative accessories to give a sophisticated and luxurious look to your tables. Opt for our metal candle holder set to stylishly decorate your Christmas dinner tablescape. For rustic candle holders, pick our chic wooden candle holders to reinforce your nature-inspired design.
8). Consider the Weight of the Candle Holders
Another significant factor to consider when choosing candle holders is the weight of the holders. Stemmed candle holders should be heavy enough to hold large candles without tipping over. They should also be sturdy enough to withstand unintentional or accidental nudges to keep things running smoothly. Our heavy duty glass candle holders are robust and can be placed anywhere without worrying about kids or clumsy hands inadvertently causing the holder to fall.
9). Consider the Light Effects

10). Usability and Versatility of the Candle Holder
Most people are hesitant to buy a decorative candle holder for a one-time festive occasion because they don’t think that spending money on a decorative accessory that would only be used once or twice is worth the expense. Therefore, it is essential to pick a candle holder stand that can be utilized for other purposes as well. Select candle holders that can be used as elegant flower vases, pen holders or to store spices, candy, and other stuff. There are many creative and artistic ways you can use floor candle holders to decorate your space, opt for a holder that serves its basic function and then can be stylishly reused for various purposes.
11). Consider the Candle Design
When pairing candles with geometric candle holders it is vital to keep the design of your candles in mind. Candles come in a variety of shapes, colors, styles, and designs, from classic plain white pillar candles to exquisite rose-shaped tealight candles there are numerous designs available to choose from. Choosing candle holders that work well with your candles is yet another important factor to consider. If you plan to use elegant monochrome pillar candles, you can choose our decorative candle holders to give a sensational accent to your candles and décor. However, if you wish to use sumptuous candles like glitter candles or unique shaped candles then you should opt for a simple metal candle holder to let your candles shine through.
