Fauna. Plant Stand. September 26th , 2017.
No matter if you plan to put plants, pictures, or other items on your stand, you need to remember these cardinal rules when you set out to choose a stand. The stand should enhance whatever you are putting on it. The perfect plant stand for any type of plant is readily available, and makes it easier than ever for you to make a statement with not only your beautiful greenery, but also with your plant stands! You also need to think about what the stand will be supporting. Consider the proportions of the plant in relation to the stand carefully as you want a good balance. You want to reconsider pairing a heavy, overpowering stand with a small, decorative plant. A fern, however, would look gorgeous on a pedestal like this.
The material from which a plant stand is made is only one variable, though. The actual style of stand can vary significantly too, presenting you with many decor and plant display options. It is this great variation in size and styles that enables you to use height and shape so effectively in interior design, especially in wide open areas such as large entrance porches and lobbies, adjacent to sweeping staircases, and in spacious living areas with wide areas of bare boards or tiles.
Of course, you want to make certain that the stand itself is big enough to hold your container or plant pot. A good guideline would be to leave somewhere in the region of 2-3 inches of space all around the plant container. Next, think of balance. You want to make sure that your stand won`t move or tip, either inside or outside. Think about the surface you`ll be placing your metal plant stand on. Is it a thickly carpeted surface, hardwood flooring, a timber deck or concrete floor? Heavier metal plant stands are generally gonna be alright on carpeted areas, whilst lighter stands need a firmer, flatter floor to remain stable.
Another place to consider in your search for an indoor plant stand with character is at flea markets. This is what flea markets are all about. Many flea markets tend to have a bunch of mixed items all together but many do not even realize that you can find great stands for cheap at these places. I have actually had people offer to trade me an item for a plant stand and when I had nothing to trade the man just gave me the plant stand that I was interested. It is just a great place to check out and I would check out your local flea market and see what is available in where you are located.
Next, you should select a metal plant stand which is in proportion with the plant, or plants, you intend to use it for. When you`ve got a little, delicate potted plant, like a pot of primulas, you don`t want to display them by using an enormous metal plant stand. Equally, if you have a huge flowing fern, you won`t want a small, stubby metal plant stand. If uncertain, keep a picture of the plant on you when you`re shopping for your stand so you can get an idea in your mind of the size and width of stand that will suit it best.
