Why Use Candle Holders

The Many Benefits of Using Candle Holders

Candles are a great way to add warmth to your home or to set up a romantic mood at an event. Lighting a candle also creates a peaceful and soothing atmosphere that helps relax and calm your mind, body, and soul. In the past, candles were used as the primary light source but in modern times they are commonly used either as decorative accessories or for their positive and calmative features.

Whether you plan to use candles to enhance and illuminate your space or to give a positive vibe to your living room, using candle holders is essential. As the name suggests, votive candle holders are used to hold the candles for various reasons. Candles can be quite dangerous and create a mess if placed without a base and are left unattended. There are many significant uses of glass candle holders that cannot be ignored. We have gathered some key points to help you understand the importance of using pillar candle holders. Read on to learn more about the benefits of using a candle holder stand to properly place the candle on your table instead of just placing a random plate under it.  

1). Candle Holders Give Support to Your Candles

Candles come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and designs. Some have a small or thin base like taper candles while others have a broad bottom such as pillar candles. Glass candle holders provide support to the candles to help them stand upright and give an exclusive visual appeal. Fixing your candles in an appropriate candle holder gives them the needed support to keep them in place. For instance, taper candle holders can be used to help dinner candles stand tall to give your dining room table an elegant and sophisticated look. Similarly, votive candle holders are small cups to hold and support a votive candle that might otherwise collapse on its own. Although tea light candles are encased in a small container it is still important to use tealight candle holders to support them properly as they are small in size.

2). Safe and Secure Base for Your Candles

The need for candle holders was discovered a long time ago when people realized that candles can tip over and cause fires. The primary function of candle holders is to provide a secure and safe base for candles to avoid any mishaps. Placing a lighted candle without a sturdy base is like waiting for a disaster to happen. Even a slight push can cause the candle to fall over and the table cloth or curtains might catch fire. To prevent any unpleasant events, it is important to use glass candle holders beneath your open flames for extra safety and precaution. Tall candle holders keep your candles stable and you don’t need to worry about kids or clumsy guests accidentally nudging your candles and wreaking havoc on the dinner table. Our Wooden candle holders and metal candle holders are sturdy enough to safely place your candles anywhere to enhance your home décor. Make sure to place your candle holders on a flat and even surface to ensure everyone’s safety.

3). Candle Holders Prevent Hot Wax Spills

Another important benefit of candle holders is that they prevent hot wax from spilling all over the place and creating an unpleasant mess. Hot wax can cause skin burns and also spoil your tables and other furnishings. Metal candle holders can be used to accumulate all the dripping wax from a burning candle without allowing it to spill over. For instance, when you light up votive candles placed in votive candle holders, the wax from the candle will be collected in the votive candle holder and there will be no mess at the table, making clean up after the party much easier and efficient.  

4). Help Enhance the Event and Home Décor

There is no doubt that lighting candles at your event or party is vital to creating a luminous and scintillating atmosphere. Using candle holders is equally important to enhance your party or home décor. A candle holder set allows you to cluster multiple candles in one place to create a striking and dazzling ambiance. Exquisite table candle holders such as our crystal candle holders and glass candle holders give an extravagant touch to the event décor.

7). Candle Holders Transform the Candle Light

Candle holders are not only limited to make the candle stand upright, but they can also be used to create striking light effects. The flickering candlelight fills the space with a warm and subtle glow for a magical and whimsical feel. When tea light or votive candles are set inside decorative candle holders, it allows the light to disperse uniquely into the surroundings. The candlelight flickers through the intricate design and perforations of the candle holder to create majestic light effects. For example, crystal candle holders will exude a royal sheen and elegance with a lit tea light candle set inside. The light will pass through the crystal beads embellished on the candle holder bowl giving a soft and breathtaking effect to your ambiance.

8). Helps Tie the Theme of the Event

Even a single mismatched decorative accessory can dampen the overall look of your set up. Using candle holders that suit the theme of your event will add a perfect finishing touch and also enhance your event décor. The right decorative candle holders can be incorporated in just about any theme. They will help tie your event décor with the added benefit of an extra light source to brighten up your venue. For a rich and dramatic themed event, a decorative candle holder will exhibit grandeur to enrich your event. Whereas, antique candle holders will enhance and complete the look of a vintage-themed event.

9). Candle Holders are Great for Windy Places

Planning an outdoor event is never easy, especially when it comes to decoration. It can be quite a task to select suitable décor elements to enhance your open space event or party. Many people shy away from using candles at an outdoor event just because of the wind aspect. This is where candle holders come to the rescue and save the day.

Hurricane candle holders which feature glass tubes or cups can be used to protect the flame from the wind and give a surreal flickering candle light look to your party tables.
