Have you ever been in the store and see that perfect vase that would look fantastic in your living room? But when you get home and try to pick it up off of the shelf, only to have it fall over onto its side, shattered on the ground? The following are Tips For Choosing The Perfect Indoor Ceramic Vase:
1. Size Is Important
The biggest mistake that people make is buying a vase that is too small. For a small corner next to the sofa, or a little vase on top of your TV stand, go with something in the 2-3 inches range. For bigger spaces, go with vases of 4-6 inches in height.
2. Make sure it is not too heavy
As with all glass objects that you might carry around, it’s best to get something lightweight. In general, anything less than 3 pounds should be fine for an indoor vase. Anything more than this and it may just be too heavy for you to consider moving from one room to another later on down the road.
3. Beware of expensive ones
While it is true that most vases are disposable when they break, no one wants to have to spend $100 on a vase that will only be used for four or five months before being replaced with another. That’s just a waste of money!
4. Cleanliness Matters
You’ll want to make sure that you wipe down the surface after purchasing your vase so that it doesn’t get dusty and dirty later on down the road. If you leave an object like this in the same room as your TV, you may want to invest in a fabric protector for your TV stand. And finally, if you have children, you’ll want to keep your vase in a place where they can’t reach it.
5. The Right Vase For You
This one’s pretty simple. The right vase is the one that will fit into your home as seamlessly and naturally as possible. If it looks out of place, move on to another one!
Vases are a great way to add some additional character to your home decor and bring in some natural beauty from outside into your living space. Have fun with it and make sure that you get something that works for you.
