Halette. Plant Stand. September 18th , 2017.
The good thing about wrought iron is the fact that it is easily molded despite being very sturdy. This means that there are an unlimited number of designs for any ironwork made out of wrought iron. It`s best that you choose a design that emphasizes the beauty of the plant that`s going to be sitting on it. For instance, if you have a plant with long leaves, then you may opt for a really thin design to make your plant look like it`s floating or being help up by its leaves. At any rate, once you have the design you want, it`s time to accentuate the place where you`re going to put the ironwork.
You can incorporate design accents wherever you want them. Regardless of your personal taste and style preferences, plant stand designs range from traditional to rustic to contemporary to whimsical and beyond. Choosing the right stand for you serves two purposes: function and fun, adding just the right accent to your home décor. You can place each plant to get the best light. Many of us are faced with less-than-perfect light conditions in our homes and apartments, so it`s good to know that there`s a way to overcome that challenge. Using stands allows you to raise the plants to a height that takes advantage of every ray of sun throughout the day. Once the stands are in place, you can easily swap which plants sit on them so that no plant goes without light for long.
Most people get captivated by the sheer beauty of a wrought iron plant stand and are almost lured into buying one until they realize that they wouldn`t know where to put them. When a new piece of furniture is planned to be added on to a home interior, there`s always the issue of whether it will blend in with the other pieces. This is overcome easily with wrought iron patterns, but when it comes to plant plunks, you really have to know where to put them. First off, you have to choose your plant stand.
Starting with what I believe to be the basic is the pedestal plant stand. This is an excellent way to display the single flowering plant, trailing vines, ferns or even a picky cactus. The pedestal stand is a great way to show off smaller plants like an orchid or violet, allowing the plant to make a statement that says look at me. The single stand can be placed in empty or awkward corner to brighten the space or used to flank an entrance to a room. Tiered plant stands are a very popular design. The stand has usually three (sometimes more) individual spots at varies heights for plants, hence the word tiered. This is an ideal arrangement for showing flowering plants that look great grouped together. This type of stand looks wonderful when placed in an area that has a little space, like a foyer. Remember to fit the size of the plant to the stand.
Small and delicate plants like a pot of Primulas and huge ferns may look great if placed in a sturdy metal plant stand. However, it is very important to make sure that these metal stands are huge enough to hold any type of plant containers or planters to protect it from sudden movements and unwanted damages over time. Such type of stands can be availed from a variety of metals such as brass and cast iron. However, they can be subjected to corrosion or rusting. To make it last longer to use, you need to apply a metal sealant or a metal spray paint to ensure protection and durability.
