Whether it’s holding colorful flowers or standing tall and empty, a decorative vase can make a statement as part of your home’s decor. Use it as the centerpiece of a room or place it among other accent pieces to make your space feel complete.
Vases come in countless colors and styles. Choose one that complements the other accents in your home.
• A crystal vase is classic and refined, perfect for formal dining rooms or foyers.
• A metal vase or silver floor vase is suited to a home with a contemporary look. If you have trendy decor, go for a modern vase.
• For homes with an artistic or country vibe, ceramic vases come in any color imaginable: Choose one to make a statement.
• A clear bud vase is a dainty touch for a guest bathroom or little girl’s room.
For rooms that are high on foot traffic or short on surface space, a hanging vase or wall vase is ideal. They work well for homes with active children or pets.
Place centerpiece vases on a hallway table, countertop or shelf. Tall floor vases are a stunning way to flank your fireplace or front door. Or, put them outside on your porch or back patio. If it has hooks, you can hang it in on any wall in your home.
Fill your vase with seasonal fresh or artificial flower arrangements. (For fresh flowers, make sure it’s lined, so that it will hold water and not damage the material.) Use a coaster or other protection underneath when it’s placed on a wooden surface.
A large glass vase is also the perfect vessel for filler that adds to your home’s decor. Place rocks, floating candles, yarn balls, pinecones, wine corks, seashells, tree branches or beads inside, and instantly add loads of character.
