Modern Plant Stand - Add Character To Your Home
Plant stands are very decorative space fillers for the home introducing more plant life in indoor areas but they can be used for other things to. If you run out of room on the mantle piece or your shelves are already cluttered indoor plant stands can act as a great display - I have one in my living room and it holds 2 slip-ware ceramic vases and looks great.
A lot of people are put off keeping plants indoors due to the responsibility of general care and watering of them. This is easily avoided by using 'fake' plants to display on your plant stand. You can purchase artificial silk plants and some of these look stunning when it comes to a modern plant stand.
It does not really matter what you plan to display your plant stand you must make sure that it enhances the area you put it in. Try and make sure the plant compliments the plant stand you are putting it on - you have a large choice to choose out of so take your time and think it through properly.
As well as this you should really make sure the plant stand is suitable for what it needs to support. Consider the proportions of the plant in relation to the plant stand with care as you want a good balance. You don't want a really heavy, bulky item sitting on top of a small elaborate stand that looks like it's legs are going to buckle at any moment. If you do own more delicate smaller plant stands consider displaying 'fern' plants on them.
Plants can be very colorful depending on the species - take this color into account. The color of your plants will contrast with the color of your plant stand. Complementary colors or neutral tones should be considered when purchasing a plant stand. Using a plant pot that will be aesthetically pleasing is a must - the top of the plant stand should always be a little bit bigger than the plant pot it is displaying.
Most indoor and outdoor plant stands are reasonably tall, this takes us on to the next point. You should always make sure you have a solid and level floor. The most problematic of indoor surfaces is usually a carpeted area - try not to use the 'pedestal' type plant stand in carpeted situations.
Plant Stands In Winter
No matter what time of year it is, modern plant stands will always have their benefits. Whether it be keeping rabbits away from the plant leaves or erasing the chance of plant stains to a carpet each plant stand has serves a unique purpose. Plant stands can look very impressive in a kept garden but what happens when the winter months arrive? A lot of the plants will have to be moved indoors to keep them protected and contemporary plant stands can aid this process.
By having your outdoor plants on plant stands it is easy to transfer them inside your home for safe keeping. Once inside they make very attractive displays for the winter months.
Always remember to keep the taller plants on shorter plant stands and put them to the sides or at the back of display - sort of like creating a wall of green behind the smaller plants.
Since plants need light, it is best to place them near a window. In many homes, unfortunately, that is also where the heater is located. If that is so, transfer your plant display to another bright area in the room and possibly consider adding a light.
Drip trays are always going to be important when it comes to displaying your plant stands inside. Is does not matter what the plant pots are made from - always use drip trays.
