There are also some other simple steps for you the deco your home:

Step 1

Keep candles away from electrical appliances. Do not place candles directly on electronic devices, like a television set or stereo in your living room. Heat from the candles, even if they are in candle holders, could break down components inside these appliances, and any dripping wax may cause irreparable damage.

Step 2

Store out of reach of pets and children. Since the living room is one of the busiest rooms in the house, there is an increased risk of children and pets knocking over candles placed down at their level. Display candles at higher levels, such as on top of entertainment centers or fireplace mantels, or use decorative wall sconces that accent you living room furniture and keep candles up and out of the way.

Step 3

Use smokeless candles. Purchase candles specially made to emit a minimal amount of smoke or keep candlewicks trimmed to a quarter of an inch to keep them from sputtering or giving off a lot of smoke. Excess smoke discolors paint on your walls and furniture fabrics and damages photographs and electronics.

Step 4

Change with the seasons. Choose candles that celebrate holidays and seasons throughout the year to keep your living room lively and fun. Tropical or fruity scents during the summer and apple and pumpkin pie scents in autumn keep your living room feeling seasonally festive.

Step 5

Make it a family affair. Since your living room is a room that the whole family spends time in, make the decorations in this room a reflection of everyone in the family. Let each member of the family choose a scent for the room, display every family member’s favorite color on a different candle or dress up ordinary candles with glitter appliques, beads and glue as a fun art project with the kids.

Please use caution and common sense when burning candles. Dorm residents usually are not allowed to have candles in their rooms.
