Calandre. Plant Stand. September 14th , 2017.
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.
We all know that plants will enhance our living space indoors and out! What better way to bring the great outdoors in! People display plants for many reasons, aesthetic value is one, enhancing the living space is always a great benefit. Keeping in mind the presentation is just as important as the plant, so this is where the plant stand enters. What better way to show off your plants then by placing it on a stand. With the right choice the plant and stand will complement each other and add to the ambiance of the room. Plant stands are crafted from a variety of material like wood, wrought iron, wicker, metal even mirrored glass. The choice of stand is determined by the style of room decor and the type of plant. Let`s take a look at some of the possibilities.
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.
You can create more impact by grouping plants together at varying heights. There are times when a single plant is such a glorious specimen that it must be shown on its own; pedestal stands are the perfect choice for this situation. But imagine walking into a room or onto your patio and being greeted by a mass of blooms amidst a backdrop of luscious green foliage. Thankfully, you can easily find two-tiered, three-tiered and four-tiered plant stands, not to mention other styles with multiple shelves and ample display space to help you create this amazing display. You can use stands to display many personal treasures. Just because it`s called a plant stand doesn`t mean you can`t show off other valued mementos and personal treasures. In addition to or instead of a plant, think about using the space for favorite photos or collections of shells or figurines or whatever else makes you smile. The possibilities are endless.
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.
