What is the best way to care for cut tulips in a vase in your house to make them last the longest?

In my experience it is best to keep them out of direct sunlight and in as cool a location as possible. It may even help to move them to a cooler room at night. The commercial floral preservatives also seem to help them last longer. To some extent the "shelf life" will depend on how recently they were cut and how they have been handled since then, too.
