Candle-Power can enhance the Atmosphere of any Bathroom

Now that the January blues have well and truly set in, we thought we’d provide you with a sure-fire way to inject some much-needed candle-power into your new bathroom.  The wonders of candle-power can leave you floating away on a sea of tranquillity and can help to create a night of escape with the perfect bathtub therapy.  The warm glow and flickering light of the candles are the perfect way to create a relaxing and inviting atmosphere.  We thought we’d put together a guide on how to choose the perfect candles to suit the mood in your new bathroom.

Candles not only add a pleasant ambiance to your new bathroom, they can also add a stylish design flair that is sure to suit all bathroom themes.  Traditional bathrooms would benefit from classic, elegant candles in glass designs, to retain the effortless simplicity showcased in the bathroom fixtures and fittings.  Using candles with a metallic sheen or finish can really add to the overall industrial feel of a modern bathroom and is a great, inexpensive way to create a pleasant ambiance in a newly renovated bathroom.

Adding scented candles to your bathroom space helps to transform the atmosphere of your new bathroom by providing a wonderful and welcoming scent.  Rustic scents work well for bathrooms with a vintage twist as the warming aromas of patchouli or rosemary help to bring a sense of comfort to the space.

Choosing the scent and the style of your candles is only part of the candle-power process.  An important part of this ambiance makeover is deciding how to present your candles.  Placing clusters of candles together can help to establish a low-key atmosphere, whilst a miss-matched selection of fun tealight holders helps to create a carefree effect in your bathroom.

Just a quick note about fire safety – whilst candles are a sure-fire way to create serenity and warmth in any bathroom space, it’s important that you don’t leave candles unattended and you should keep candles away from flammable objects.
