If you have a tub in the bathroom and plan to enjoy a bubble bath either alone or with your romantic partner, we are sure that you will be using bath salts or a fragrant bubble bath mix. When you do, you will probably be going for a scent that you find relaxing. When you do, we suggest that you note what the scent is and pick out candles that have the same kind of fragrance or one that goes with the bath oils you have picked out so that you create a harmonious vibe all around.
Another important factor to keep in mind is the placement of the candles. If you have a mirror in the bathroom, it would be a smart move to place the candles in front of the mirror because this way fewer candles can create more light. But you have to make sure that none of the water drops fall on the candles or the wax that melts does not get on to your skin or your clothes.
If there is no danger of kids touching or fiddling with the candles, which can be a dangerous scenario, you can actually invest in a few cute little candle stands that you can leave permanently in the bathroom. You can also leave a nice selection of candles in the bathroom along with a box of matches to light them as needed. But as we said earlier, safety is very important and you will need to factor this in.
