The perfect lighting makes a big difference in everything. I’m working on redoing our home decor and want to add just the right touches of light with candles throughout our home. We have two children so decorating with real candles can be very tricky. We have to make sure the candles are not lit when the children are around for fear of burning. If they are lit when the children are present, they need to be in tough to reach places.
In order to circumvent the dangers and hassles associated with traditional flame candles, I’ve decided to decorate our home with battery operated lights. I don’t just mean spot lights and such and dimmers, I mean flameless candles. Flameless candles mean we don’t have to worry about one of the kids reaching up and grabbing a flame and getting burned. They are much safer. We don’t have to worry about remembering to blow the candles out before going to bed or leaving the house. They really make me feel a lot safer than using traditional candles.
LED tea lights will make a nice addition to our living room and dining room. I like how we can set them in any votive holder and they will flicker just like a normal candle would. The soft candle light glow is what I’m after, not the danger of the flame. I also like the idea that I won’t have to have bags of tea lights on hand to replace all of the time once they burn out. The only thing I’ll have to replace will be the occasional battery. I’ve even seen the kind of tea lights that are rechargeable. That sounds like my kind of candle. I won’t have to store extra candles or extra batteries.
I enjoy the glow of candles when I want to relax, so may I’ll pick up some extra candles to use in my bathroom for when I want to take long,hot baths. It wouldn’t hurt to add a few lighting touches to our master bedroom either. For the bedroom though I think I will go with the kind of candles that look like real melting candles but are still battery operated. I’ll get the look I still want and the peace of mind that flameless candles provide.
