Choosing The Best Metal Vases
If you are a fan of fresh flowers, or just like adding decorative touches to your home, then a nice vase can be the way to go. Vases come in all shapes, sizes and colors, and can match almost any motif. And metal vases are a bit more intricate and expensive, and have more of an antique look to them. The best metal vases for your home can range from modern to rustic in design and from just big enough for a single, tiny bloom to large enough to accommodate a sizeable garden’s cuttings. For indoor use, the style and color options for metal vases are practically unlimited, whether you need a vase to hold a table centerpiece or one to hold its own as a decorative element in an otherwise dull corner or hallway. Metal vases for outdoors use can be as simple as a metal bucket or an antique washtub. In choosing the best, you should first determine the size you need, the style you want and a price range.
There are several different finishes available for metal vases. Determining the type of metal you want, whether a more expensive silver or platinum or a cheaper aluminum or tin, can narrow your search significantly. Some metal vases will need no adornment aside from their natural finish. For others, a hand-painted design can make a metal vase look like a ceramic vase without as much risk of breakage if it were to tip over. Pewter vases have a muted finish, like brushed silver, and can evoke the feel of a medieval castle or add a touch of contemporary elegance, depending on their design.
