With all of us going plant mad over the last few years you may be running out of planters and plant stand ideas to house your botanical friends. Let us help you with tips and inspiration for finding the best plant stand for you and your home! Read on for our ideas to get the right plant stand for you and your plant. As well as sharing our favourite Rocket St George products to inspire you.
Going For Gold
Plant stands should complement your plants and not just be a functional pot. With this in mind, why not go for gold and let your plants shine. Metalic plant stands are a great way to enhance your plant display at the same time, letting the light reflect off the surface onto your plant leaves.
Our Brass Effect Planter With Stand is the ideal plant stand for larger plants that have big foliage. The wide & low style means it will look perfect sat next to a sofa or chair keeping everything at eye level when lounging in your living room. Another example of this style is the Wide Scallop Planter On Stand, a textured beauty that will draw the eye and brings interest to a corner of the home.
A brushed metallic and textured finish as seen on this plant stand is a fun choice for those who want to be bold with their planters but are not overly confident with colour. As with our Bronze Planter On Metal Stand, a brushed finish offers sophistication and compliments the green foliage of plants for calming style.
For those that like a multi-use style then take a look at our Black Metal Multi Plant Pot Stand. With a gorgeous 4-tiered design with intricate wire detailing this plant stand will turn head. Fill with your favourite plants of varying sizes for a maximalist look. Use the top level for a stunning trailing plant and the lower levels for bushy leaves with lots of texture. Create a mini jungle of luscious leaves and greens!
If you want to take your plant displays off the floor then the Matt Black Wall Plant Pots might be just what you need. These modern wall-mounted planters ooze grown-up style and are ideal for potting trailing succulents. Fill a wall with multiple pots for full impact and a different take on a living plant wall. Of course, any of these plant stands can be filled with real or faux plants. We all have those awkward dark areas where going real just doesn't work. If you need to fake it then we are right with you!
If your style is a bit more rustic and you like to bring the charm of something more weathered or aged then a tabletop plant stand like our Large Black Cauldron Planter is perfect. Place on a cabinet or even in the middle of a dining table filled with your favourite succulents or ferns. With its distressed textural finish, it will compliment your greenery with a striking contrast of the dark metal & warm rust tones with the lush greens of the leaves.
For something a little bigger but equally striking with its black rustic finish, our Iron Planter With Stand is a winner! A stunning piece that will hold an established plant in style, this plant stand offers structure in its bold shape and colour. A head tuner for any guests entering the room.
We are of course fans of the quirky and this can also be introduced into your plant pots. The Angelic Gold Face Planter is a great example of bringing charm and fun, but with a rustic, aged feel. An eye-catching plant stand that offers a talking point for guests and family alike. You always need pieces like this in your home!
An ever-popular trend is monochrome, but it doesn't need to be the obvious black & white stripes or dots. Explore monochrome planters taking a new modern spin on patterns and finishes. Our Leopard Print Footed Plant Pot is a good place to start. Taking the classic leopard print pattern but simplified, resulting in a fun monochrome plant stand. Place on a side table or coffee table alongside other ornaments for a super cute style spot.
Our gorgeous Large Ceramic Stripe & Spot Pot Planter With Feet uses the classic monochrome pattern but in a really cool modern way. The simple shape lends itself to a modern interior and it's a great size for an established Monstera or Fig tree. Always look for details in your plant stand as you would in other accessories for the home. You don't need lots of colours to make an impact!
An example of this is the subtle Ceramic Holding Nature Plant Pot. An understated off white planter that is full of character and charm. Place against a dark wall or next to a black vase to ornament, for instant monochrome elegance.
How To Style
Shelfie Style Spot
Filling your favourite plant stand is only the start, now you need to find the perfect home for it. Create a fabulous style spot on a shelf or shelving unit. Mix with other pots & ornaments, books and photo frames. Whether your style is maximalist or more minimal a shelf is a great way to display your plants. Trailing plants are the best for this, creating interest with texture & shape.
Whether it's placed on top of or by the side, combining your plant stand with a sideboard is going to enhance any room. Place a large Monstera or Fig Tree next to your TV unit in a living room, creating a softness and cosy feeling whilst watching the television. Alternatively, place a large plant stand on top of a kitchen sideboard with a bushy Fern or Spider Plant. The colour, texture and shapes will contrast with the straight lines of the sideboard. Layer the top of your sideboard with storage pots, cookbooks, a fruit bowl and a lamp for a curated feel, and one your guests will admire.
Floor Standing Fabulousness
If your room has the space we think a grouping of plant stands looks fab. Use different heights and styles to create a layered jungle of greens & texture. This could be using a multi-stand or lots of different stands each with a different plant in. This is a brilliant way to create height in a room and also fills awkward spaces where you can't necessarily place any furniture.
