Alita. Plant Stand. September 07th , 2017.
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.
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.
Initially, the stand should not take focus from the actual plant that it is holding. It is attractive, when you see an elaborate, beautiful stand, to select it on appearance on it`s own. But what happens when you bring it home and place your house plant on it... and all you notice is the stand, not really the plant? The whole idea of having houseplants, after all, is to appreciate the beauty of the plant itself. So while you undoubtedly want an interesting metal plant stand, you also want to ensure that it will highlight your plants, rather than overpower them. Think of your houseplant as a piece of art work, and the metal plant stand as the frame. It must stand out, but do so while remaining quietly in the background, supporting and showcasing the good thing about the plant.
I`ve what some would call a brown thumb. I can`t appear to keep a plant alive until it`s meant to be a hardy plant that requires little or no care. I don`t know why I`ve such a problem, but I do. Once I do find a plant that can survive my very own special brand of neglect, as you can think of it, I am overjoyed. That means I wish to hold that plant. However, if it is not me trying to kill it, it`s my pets or my kid. That means I would like plant stands to keep them up and out of the way in which if in any respect possible.
Last but certainly not least is the corner stand. This type of unit generally provides a number of shelves that offer spacing for plants and they fit into corners. This stand also allows you to go outside the box. You can create a grouping of plants such as a herb garden in the kitchen and even mix in a few non plant items, maybe a cook book or two and a container with cooking utensils. When looking for a stand you should keep in mind the plant, your taste and personality. It should bring you pleasure! Decide the type that will fit with your decor and the plant that you are placing on it. There is a wide variety out there. Plants stands should complement the plant and enhance the space bringing beauty into your home!
