Which plant pot is the right one for indoors?
There is not the "only" right planter. In addition to personal taste, the intended use also plays a role. Do you particularly want a stylish decorative element or should the planter be a room divider in the interior?
There are many good reasons to beautify or design the interior with a plant pot. Get plant pot ideas from Kingplanters, and set green accents in your home.
Different materials for indoor planters
As far as the material is concerned, you can draw from the solid material of indoor planters. In contrast to outdoor planters, you do not need to make sure that indoor planters are weatherproof and frost-free.
The choice of materials suitable for indoor use is immense. From plastic to wood or metal, there is something for every taste. The following selection can therefore only give a brief insight into the variety of materials.
Planters made of fibreglass are currently in vogue. The robust material is used for planters both indoors and outdoors. If the plant pots are used indoors, the fibreglass body can be given an unusual finish.
With a coating in gold leaf look, or handmade silver-blue shimmering mother-of-pearl shells you give your living room a glamorous touch. If you prefer a more discreet planter design, you will enjoy the stone-look fibreglass containers.
Fibreglass products can be refined in many different ways. Fibreglass vessels can be made into particularly unusual highlights by mixing them with aluminium powder, metal pigments of granite or bronze pigments.
Plain glass vessels are also very popular. Arrangements of stones, shells and artificial plants are particularly decorative.
If you prefer wood as the material for planters inside, you will be delighted with teak pots. The elegant looking material provides a comfortable ambience.
Brilliance in the truest sense of the word can be brought to your premises with stainless steel planters. The noble material is timeless and fits perfectly into the modern furnishing style.
Planters in concrete look are becoming increasingly popular. The absolutely trendy planters are made of glass fibre reinforced cement. Straight lines and simple shapes are characteristic for this look.
Large variety of shapes and colours
Those who have the choice are spoilt for choice. This also applies to planters. There are so many different shapes and sizes - from the small, round planting bowl to the conical bottom vase to the tall, rectangular planting box - which meet the needs of the occupant of a small apartment as well as the requirements of the operator of a hotel.
Also in terms of colours, there are hardly any wishes left unfulfilled. You have the choice between subtle and eye-catching colours. The warm brown of teak wood radiates cosiness. Planters in cement look are available in trendy grey or anthracite. Planters look elegant inside in black. Stylish eye-catchers are extravagant planters in silver or gold. A brilliant white is always a good choice. And plants are shown off to their best advantage in pots made of shiny silver stainless steel.
Particularly practical are table vessels, which are often offered in the neutral colour white. The complete set with plant insert, plant substrate and water level indicator is ideally suited for reception counters or for decorating tables in the catering trade. Wherever there is not much time for plant care, you will appreciate this uncomplicated planter.
Design with planters
You can decorate the inside with a flower pot or even structure rooms. This applies to private homes as well as offices and other commercially used rooms.
Small, round or elongated planters or small, spherical planters cut a good figure on a sideboard, for example. A floral decoration on a dining table can also be arranged well in a planting bowl. In square or round plant pots, on the other hand, you can put larger solitary plants in the right light. Palms or grasses are shown to their best advantage. If the plant pot is high in the interior and also rectangular, you have the ideal room divider. Plant boxes are excellent design elements.
You can thus divide a very large living room into a cosy living area and a separate dining area. The functional room divider thus becomes a decorative eye-catcher at the same time.
Planter boxes are also popular in open-plan offices as a means of separating desk workstations. On the one hand, this ensures a certain privacy and on the other hand, plants contribute to noise reduction and improve the indoor air.
High planting columns, large round planting bowls or large round or square plant pots are particularly suitable for the entrance area of offices, restaurants or hotels. The first impression is often decisive. An inviting entrance area with harmonious planters and plants contributes positively to the image.
What should be observed for indoor planters?
With indoor planters, unlike outdoor planters, you do not need to worry about whether the containers are robust and weatherproof. You have a free hand with the material and can fully concentrate on shape and colour.
Nevertheless, there are a few things to consider. Make sure that your floor is not ruined by leaking water or scratch marks. Plants cannot tolerate stagnant moisture. This is no problem outdoors. The planters have a hole in the ground and the water can run off unhindered. In the living area, a stand can help with small pots. But this does not look very decorative.
It is better to line the planter. For this purpose there are inserts for planters which prevent leakage. The transparent material of these plant inserts is usually soft and flexible and can be bent or trimmed as required.
The vessels are thus made leak-proof without much effort. In addition, the plant inserts prevent unsightly lime deposits on the vessel walls.
Large planted planters are extremely decorative, but also very heavy. Unfortunately, it is not possible to prevent the planter from having to be pushed to the side from time to time. On the one hand, this requires a lot of effort and on the other hand, ugly scratches on the parquet floor can occur when moving the planter. A stand with castors provides a simple and effective remedy here.
Coasters are available in different sizes and materials. There are even planters on wheels that make pushing them back and forth a breeze.
Wood is a popular material for planters. Wooden planters have a natural flair and are an absolute highlight in both private and commercial rooms. Unfortunately the lack of humidity in the interior can lead to wood cracks. Especially in winter, when heating is used, an appropriate room climate must be ensured. This is especially true if you have underfloor heating. In this case it is best to provide an additional moisturizer.
