Floor vases are larger than standard vases because they are meant to sit on the floor and act as a significant decorative element in the room. Floor vases are available in an array of materials, such as ceramic and glass; each offers creative design options.
Dried Flower or Petrified Branches
Insert and arrange dried flowers or petrified branches inside a ceramic or glass floor vase. Select tall flowers or branches because floor vases tend to have extended bottoms, therefore you will not see a large portion of the flowers or branches. Dried flowers and petrified branches are low-maintenance decorations that can stay in the vase until it's time to redecorate. Place the decorated floor vase in a corner, against a wall or at the end of a piece of furniture.
Live plants can thrive with proper care in a ceramic or glass floor vase. Either choice of vase, as long as it is waterproof, is suitable as a planter, which means you can add soil and grow a plant successfully. When you determine where you want to place the floor vase in your home, you can determine which plant types will grow in that location--some plants need more sunlight than others. Another aspect of growing a plant in a vase is the watering process. Most planters have holes at the bottom to allow water to drain and eliminate the chance of drowning a plant, but most vases do not, therefore you can choose one of two options: drill a small hole at the bottom of the floor vase and set it on top of a water collection tray, or select a plant that does not require a large amount of water so it does not collect at the bottom of the vase.
Sand, Seashells and Rocks
A simple method for decorating a clear glass floor vase is to add sand or seashells, a combination of the two or a series of smooth river rocks. This floor vase is ideal for bathrooms and can be placed near the foot of a bathtub or shower or in a corner. Wash the rocks and shells before adding them to the vase to obtain a clean, glimmering appearance.
