Indoor plant stand are similar to all other furnishings in your house: many have utility, but you still want them to complement the décor. They may be strictly for utility, like the clothes washer and dryer, and relegated to a permanent place in your cellar for raising seedlings.
If you want to stage your houseplants around indoor plant stand, consider whether you want the plants or the indoor plant stands to be the focus. If your green thumb nurtures each little house plant into a lush, healthy jungle then you may want to purchase indoor plant stand that blend into the background and allow the plants themselves to emerge stars of the show.
If you don’t have many or many full plants, your indoor plant stand may become focal points. You can buy either traditionally scrolled or uncluttered and angular wrought iron indoor plant stands. These could blend with your décor or serve as points of emphasis in the room. If metal is not your element, you may find that wooden plant stand warm up the space. There are also synthetic plant stands or those of composite materials that mimic stone or marble.
Consider the height of your plant stand within your room. If you have high ceilings, your room can take taller and bolder indoor plant stands. (Having a tall cathedral ceiling often means loads of bare wall up high, so it would be a shame not to use this space for plants.)
You can also purchase plant stands for single plants—these stands mimic old columns and give the room a sense of “architecture.” These indoor plant stands are great for filling an empty corner or for formalizing an entryway or dining area. Some indoor plant stands are built to fit into a corner—often a blank space—giving your room a finished look.
Some of the most charming indoor plant stand I’ve ever seen are those that were never meant to be indoor plant stands: someone creative simply staged her plants in an unconventional way, creating her own indoor plant stand. It may be a shabby-chic hutch or even a child’s antique wooden hutch that now has plants on top, inside the open glass doors, and even pouring out of a drawer or two.
You can up-end a simple but large flower pot itself and use it as a lower plant stand, scattering these throughout a room or creating layers of plants vertically with this technique. Indoor plant stands can be almost anything you imagine.
One last note, however: you can purchase indoor plant stand with grow lights on each level. They are the easiest way to grow an indoor herb garden or to start seedlings. So you have functionality in a neat package.
Whether store bought, found at a flea market, or made from something you already own, almost anything your imagination sees can turn into indoor plant stand.
