Interior-Decorating Just a few hundred years ago, people all over the world used candles and lamps to light up their life. With the invention of electricity and the light bulb, there has been a paradigm shift in the way we live. Dark streets have been replaced by well-lighted pathways, and our houses are lit up with lights that provide more illumination that dozens of candles. While candles used to be a necessity in those times, today they are more of a decoration. We do not need lamps or candles as sources of light, but most of us are still attracted by the romantic light provided by the candles. Bright bulbs or tube lights provide a sharp and clear light, but the faint light of candles is a lot more mysterious and attractive. You can choose unique candles for different occasions; there is a wide range of candles that you can choose from: Regular Wax Candles: This the most .mon type of candle. This is the oldest kind of candle, and it burns paraffin to produce light. You can get this candle in different colors and different shapes. Nowadays, you can also buy perfumed wax candles. While there are not the most romantic or beautiful candles, they are cheap and durable. If you like the look of wax candles, but do not like the faint smell of burning wax, you can go for LED pillar candles that are made of real wax. Tea Light Candles: This the type of candle used to heat fondues. Thin metal or plastic holds the candle together; as the candle burns, the wax liquefies inside the container. You can use the same wax over and over again. Usually, tea light candles are small in size and do not give much illumination. You can burn a number of tea lights at the same time to create the perfect ambience for meditation or a romantic dinner. Pillar Candles: Pillar candles have been used since ancient times as mobile lights: when someone wanted to move through dark corridors, this was the light they chose. These candles are taller and broader than your average candles, and they last for a long time. Pillar candles .e in different colors and designs. Flameless LED Candles with Timer: If you want candle light without burning wax or any other fuel, you will like this contraption. Flameless LED candles look like a candle, flickers like a candle, and it lights up your room like a candle, but it doesnt have a flame. The best part is that you can set a timer to automatically turn off the candle in some time. This is a great choice for the type of person who falls asleep while reading, or for people who go to sleep right after meditating. There is no reason why you should restrict the use of candle to birthdays or candlelight dinners. While the sharp clarity of bright electric lights is very useful, it doesnt match up to the quiet, romantic aura of flickering candles. Find out what type of candles you like, and use candles to decorate your rooms and to light up your life. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
