When you think of sprucing up your living space, floor vases can be an elegant addition with significant impact. But how can you arrange your vase to create a cohesive look? In this blog, we'll give you tips on creating a stylish decor element that creates a warm and inviting ambiance in any room.

Where to put your vase?

Figuring out where to place that floor vase in your home can make a world of difference. Although the name suggests that you must place a floor vase on the floor, you can also put it elsewhere.
  • In the corner of your room
  • Next to the seating area
  • On an elevation, such as a pedestal or side table
  • If you have one, in a wall niche

When arranging your floor vases, it's not just about finding a corner to tuck them away. Your vase should add to the room's aesthetic, not hinder its function. So, place vases where they won't obstruct movement or sightlines.
