Decorative vases: what they are, how to use and how to choose
It is important to know that decorative pots do not only exist to house plants and flowers, although this is the most traditional use. Historically, vases have been present in interior decoration since ancient Greece. From the seventeenth century they began to be used inside the great halls. And nowadays, as you well know, the decorative vases are everywhere, lavishing charm and elegance.
But anyway what to put inside a decorative vase? Everything will depend on the model of vessel you choose. Some may receive only a few flowers or cut leaves, others may already harbor bulky arrangements, while others may simply remain empty, which also has no problem at all. Check out the following topics for the top tips to choose from depending on the intended use:
Size and proportion
The size of the pot is important both from the aesthetic point of view and from the functional point of view, in case it houses a plant. If you plan to leave the decorative vase empty the size of it should be thinking about the environment, so that it is proportional to the space. To summarize: large room holds large vases, small rooms are more harmonious with small vases.
Usually empty vases are used on sideboards, racks and coffee tables, but depending on the model it is still possible to put it on the floor. There is the possibility of forming a set of three vessels, for example, and keeping them grouped in the same space.
If the intention is to use a vase with cut flowers it needs to be consistent in size with respect to the environment and the flowers inside. Very large flowers or bulky arrangements require pots in the same proportion and vice versa.
Finally, if you intend to use a decorative vase to plant some species you need to look for the space necessary for the development of the plant.
Do not even think about putting a large plant in a small pot because it will have affected growth. Small plants in large pots are aesthetically disharmonious.
Remember that plants are always the protagonists and not the pot, so the tip here is: first choose the plant and then choose the pot.
Colors in harmony
The colors of the vase must be thought of in relation to the other colors of the environment. Here you have two options: follow the same palette of decoration tones for the vase or choose to use the vase as a highlight element and choose a vibrant and striking color for it. Both solutions are welcome.
Square, round, rectangular and so on. There are several choices of pot sizes and the choice depends on your personal taste, the use that will make of it and the style of decoration of the house.
Round vases are a good choice for romantic and delicate style decorations. Square and straight line vessels can be used successfully in modern, minimalist and industrial decorations. The classic, neutral and sober decorations benefit from both square and round vases.
Now if the proposal is to create a bold decor, young and informal bet on vessels of asymmetrical formats.
However, in all these cases it is important to first observe whether the type of plant to be placed in the vessel conforms to the chosen format. For other types of use, the format is indifferent.
The materials of the decorative vessels also vary. There are options of ceramic, wood, cement, metal, glass, stainless steel, plastic and etc. The choice between one and another should be made depending on the use of the vessel and the location where it will be exposed.
Internal environments accept any type of vessel. For outdoor areas, choose the most resistant and easy to clean models such as wood, ceramic and cement.
For damp places such as the bathroom and kitchen, the most recommended vessels are non-porous, not absorbing moisture, grease and other dirt.
If you are going to use the decorative pot to plant, first check the needs of the plant. Ceramic vessels tend to compete with water for the plant, so they are not suitable for species that need more water, for example.
Vases versus cachepot
And, finally, do not confuse pot with cachepot. Vases are objects made to receive plants, on earth, in water, anyway. Already the cachepots serve only as a "cover" of the main vessel. They were not made for planting, precisely because they did not have a drainage system.
