Candles. Despite all the modern lighting innovations, candles continue to be an important lighting method. Some get them to improve the ambiance in their home or business. Others get for the aromas that scented candles offer that are truly relaxing or for the insect-repelling benefits they bring, too. Last but not certainly not least, they’re still handy for when those power outages suddenly happen. 

Every candle needs a candle holder, but not all candle holders work well for the candle that you have. So how do you choose the right one? Here are some tips from Lovespoon Candles, your best source for the best luxury candles:

What You Need to Consider Before You Buy a Candle Holder

Do you want to achieve soft and mood-enhancing lighting in a certain area of your house? THen a candle holder can greatly help you. It can illuminate the room and at the same time serve as a decorative element. There are three general types of candle holders - table candle holder, wall-mounted candle holder, and chandeliers. They also come in different styles, shapes, and sizes. There are classically designed ones and modern ones, too, so you can be sure that you’ll find one that suits your home’s style. 

Let’s take a look at those three types of candle holders.

Table Candle Holders

These may be the most popular type of candle holder and the most commonly used, too. You are probably familiar with these - tealight candle holders, lantern candle holders, candelabras, votive candle holders, and others. The choice depends on the style that you want and the number of candles you have, as well as the function that you want from it. 

Here’s what you should know about the most common options for table candle holders:

Candelabras - these have a single stand but can hold up to six candles. They are typically made of metal and have a curved design. 

Candle-holding lanterns - these look like the usual lantern that you’re familiar with, only they are used to hold candles. They can have up to three levels holding one candle per level. It’s a more traditional type of candle holder that can also be an interesting decorative piece.

Rustic candlesticks - whether they’re metal or wood, candlesticks mostly have pedestal designs and come in three pieces. They’re best for when you’re looking for a simple and traditional design. 

Wall-Mounted Candle Holders

If you have ever seen a period drama or movie, then you know what most wall-mounted candle holders look like. Not many people choose this option but they are still available if it’s what you need. Like other types of candle holders, they can be metal or wood and can be as simple or as intricate as you want them to be. 


Chandeliers or hanging candle holders are extremely beautiful decorative items and can help you achieve a warm atmosphere but they’re not the most practical choice. For one, they’re difficult to maintain. They also require a sturdy support base because chandeliers can be really hay. They are also quite expensive and could go up to thousands of dollars. 

What You Should Consider

Now that you’re more familiar with the different types of candle holders available, you should consider these things when choosing one for your home:

  • How many candles it can hold and what size
  • The space where you’ll place the candle holder
  • Its function, whether it’s merely for decoration or will you really use it for its purpose
  • Glass or metal


Candles were invented centuries ago but they remain to be one of the most popular accessories, and that means candleholders are also still quite popular. When choosing the candle holder for your room or home, consider the style that you need, as well as factors like the number of candles they can hold, their size, and how easy it would be to clean them. Your fancy candles deserve the best candleholders, too, so make sure you get the best one you can find.
