2. Design tea light holders and flame games

With tealight holders, the focus is less on the tealight. It is about the holder itself and the flame that conjures up the enchanting play of light. Here you can distinguish two forms.

On the one hand there are the closed tea light holders . In this case, the flame of the tea light is hardly visually perceived, but only the emitted light. The advantage here is on the one hand that with the condition of the tea light completely individual light plays into the area are radiated . On the other hand, there is a lower risk of fire and injury due to the flame not being directly exposed.

With open tea light holders one sees the flame of the candle completely and this illuminates the space absolutely unfiltered. Thus, the flame spectacle can be observed unhindered.

3. The right material for every interior style

The most commonly used materials for tea light holders are glass (1) and metal (2) .
Metal has reflective properties which make the supposedly small candlelight of a tea light appear larger. Reflecting the candlelight through the metal results in a captivating diffusion of the candlelight in the room. Metal tealight holders look particularly good in the industrial style . Especially in dark colors like black they are a great contrast.
With tea light holders made of coloured glass you can change the glow of the tea light and thus influence the atmosphere in the room. If you like it simple, you can go for clear tealight holders . These look classy and can be used universally. A great advantage to be able to integrate them into many interior styles.
