Ikea Rotera Tealight Lantern
Advantages: Cheap, looks nice
Another Ikea bargain
This is one of those cheap Ikea items that I have seen in lots of people's houses and gardens, and has been available for years! I guess if an item is popular, then why not keep producing it?
The lantern I have is red, and it also comes in white, silver and black. At just £3, it is no surprise this is such a popular buy!
This lantern is designed to hold a single tealight, and is for indoor and outdoor use. It is 21cm high and has a simple yet pretty design. It is made of metal, with glass around the middle. At the top of the lantern is a thin handle so you can hang it up in the garden, but of course you can simply pop it onto any other surface too.
The tealight simple sits in a little metal area specially designed for it in the middle of the lantern. One of the glass sections is hinged to create a small door, so it is really easy to put the tealight in, and take it out after it is finished. Some candle holders can be a bit fiddly to use, but this one is very straightforward.
A warm glow
What makes this lantern look so nice when the tealight is lit is that there are small star designs cut out from the top. So the light glows through these holes nicely, as well as through the clear glass middle of the lantern. It creates a soft and quite calming glow, and on summer evenings in the garden this looks really lovely.
Although we only have one of these lanterns, I often think of buying some more as I think to have a few of these glowing outside would look very pretty but as we seem to have such short summers these days I never seem to get round to it! I do tend to use this outside more than inside as I have other candle holders that I use indoors, but this is a versatile item that lends itself to both I think.
I have to give this item five stars as I really have no complaints about it. It looks good, it's cheap and ours has lasted for years and looks as good as new. Recommended.
Summary: A great buy
