Halette. Plant Stand. September 30th , 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.
The first place to consider is garage sales. I have come across plant stands by the hundreds when I go out to garage sales and the best part is they are extremely cheap. You can have great finds with home décor items like this at garage sales and they are definitely an original piece of furniture that I would bet is rare if it is a truly good find. The only worry that I have come across is the condition. I would just make sure there is no rust or visible damage. I have come across some plant stands with water damage and rust damage and it would not be worth buying if it is falling apart. Unless the damage adds some sort of character to the stand that is not going to leave rust stains on your carpet, by all means ring it up. Most plant stands at a garage sale should run you around $5-$15 depending on size and material it is made out of.
Starting on the floor, with the taller plants off to the side, it is possible to put more plants on ever taller plant stands placed behind each other to create a virtual bank or wall of greenery and flowers which will not take up too much space in a room. There is a great variety of plant stands available, those that stand by themselves for just one plant, others that come in a set of two or three at various heights. Yet others come in spirals with platforms for several flowerpots, or in the form of a baker`s rack that holds even more potted plants. There are also plant stands that can be folded up for storage, when no longer needed and others that have wheels for easy moving. Depending on the size of the plant, as well as the kind of pot used, one also must consider how sturdy the plant stand is constructed. A huge fern in a clay pot needs a considerably more solid stand than a small geranium in a plastic container.
Plant stands are both decorative and versatile and they`re not just for plants either! Actually, a nicely fashioned pedestal plant stand is ideal for displaying extra items when you`ve run out of room on your mantle or shelving. The appeal of either a living or an artificial plant is enhanced by putting it on an attractive plant stand. Unlike live plants, silk ones will allow you to enjoy greenery without putting time into watering. An artificial plant should have a stand to add to its character.
Once you have made the decision to use plants in the home, displayed on attractive stands and grown in decorative pots, what types of containers can you expect to find in the stores, whether local or online? They tend to come in a variety of materials, the more common being wood, wrought iron and other metals, and wicker. Less common, but very appealing alternative base materials, can be found in porcelain, marble, stone, and acrylic.
