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.
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.
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.
If you are displaying greenery, then a white or metallic color stand will suit it just fine. For flowering plants, you need to make sure that the color of the blooms pop. If that`s the case, you need to choose a metal plant stand in either a neutral color, such as black or white, or a complimentary color. If your flowers are yellow-colored, for example, they will pop against a blue or dark-colored stand.
If you have a spacious home, the use of plant stands can be a versatile and flexible addition to your home decor. They can, of course, be used in smaller rooms too, but it is in spacious areas of a home that indoor planters and plant stands can be used most strikingly and effectively. The combination of plants, planters and stands can add another dimension to your living space. The living decor, in the form of foliage and flowering plants, or of miniature trees and shrubs, can be as varied as you wish, with such a wide choice of indoor plants available. Once you combine them with both planters and stands, the combinations open to you are almost limitless. It can never be an excuse to say: "I can`t find any plants, stands and pots that fit in with my home decor."
