Flower pots can do far more than simply hold plants. They can add a touch of whimsy, sophistication, or classic styling to the spaces they occupy. They can keep your plants alive while you are on holiday, and protect your furniture from overspill. The contents of flower pots, if you choose live plants, can actually improve the air quality in your home. With the studies available showing that plants cleanse the air and humidify the atmosphere of the home, more and more people want to add potted plants to their home and office décor. Here are some ways to add class to your home with designer plant pots.
Lechuza makes a series of plant pots that save water. These attractive pots can be used indoors or outdoors, and come in a variety of colors. There are even table-top planters, now, that conserve water by providing a sub-irrigation method that waters your plants whenever you can’t. You can actually go 3 months without watering your plants, because the pot does it for you. It has a water level marker on the side, that looks very stylish. The modern lines will blend very well with your home’s interior, if you like the clean lines of minimalist styling. If your home is in the modern or industrial style, with clean lines, hard surfaces, and minimal fabric, these planters will look like they are in their natural habitat. This is a great way to add the natural touch of plants to a décor style that can tend to look sterile and unwelcoming.
Do you need a night light somewhere in your home? Perhaps you would like to illuminate the sidewalk or patio, but don’t want a lot of clutter. There are many designer plant pots that incorporate lighting in various creative ways. Some pots use battery-operated lighting, while others allow you to plug the pot in to generate light. If you elect to use the latter, make sure it is UL listed for outdoor use. These lighted plant pots can provide ambient light in a room, helping to set a mood or simply keep people from wracking their shins on furniture. Outdoors, they can be used to create destination points in the garden, highlight specimen plants or mark the edge of a deck.
