101 Best Planter Stands for Indoors and Outdoors

The perfect plant stand is a sort of Holy Grail that has harried interior designers and homeowners for decades now. Sure, everyone loves a nice, big colorful garden, but what about those plants you’re keeping indoors?

What do you use to house them in and more importantly, on what do you place the pots?

Why, a plant stand, of course! And while this may seem like an easy enough task, it’s trickier than it sounds.

After all, you want something that will go with the room’s style and that will stand out enough (though not too much, so that it doesn’t rob the plants themselves of attention).

To make it easier for you, we've put together a list of great ideas for plant stands that you can use outdoors or indoors. But first...

Why Use Planter Stands?

Each plant is special. For the dedicated gardener who spends hours caring for his plants, each and every one of them is a reason to be proud.

A plant stand helps you showcase your plants and with that, the beauty and joy they bring you every day.

When you have something you’ve cultivated from seeds, watched them sprout and grow vibrant green leaves and delicate flowers, it’s natural to want to put them on display.

After all the hours you spend caring, pruning, watering, and arranging those plants, why shouldn’t they get the attention they deserve?

Important: The right plants stand can actually compliment the space it’s set in and “vibe” with the rest of the space. Also, planter stands make plants easier to reach, so that you can better care for them.

Alternatively, you can opt for a hanging plant stand if you are low on ground space. This way, you can still have plants even if you technically don't have the space for them.

See, there’s a myriad of reasons why you should have at least one plant stand in your home.

And if you want another reason—plant stands are gorgeous. The best ones, at least.

Best Pot Planter Stands Ideas

So we’ve given you quite a good idea why you might want to get yourself a plant stand (or ten), but you might be a little stumped for ideas.

It can be tricky, particularly if you’re not big on the whole decorating thing. Good news–we are here to help.

Plant Stands Indoor Ideas

First, let’s start by looking at some of the best ideas of what you can have indoors. Obviously, these will relate more closely to notions such as color arrangement, space, furniture size, etc.

1. Small Copper Plant Stand

This black little gem is ideal if you’re low on space (think studio or apartment) but want to add a dash of nature. It’s great ‘cause the black goes with plants of any color and, luckily for you, that’s also true for furniture!

2. Gold Planter with Metal Plant Stand

Here to add a touch of royalty to your space, this gold plant stand is a little trickier to fit into your room.

Plant Stand Brass

Tip: This one would go well with minimalistic, black and white (or in any case, dark shades), but would be completely drowned out in a room furnished with bright colors.

3. Tiered Plant Stand

This simplistic style stand is ideal for a corner, particularly a well-lit one, and goes well with smaller, bush-style plants. Bigger plants wouldn’t be a good fit, as they would “drown out” their smaller neighbors.

4.Minimalist Modern Metal Plant Stand

They weren’t kidding when they said minimalist! This simple style stand goes well with practically any decor. Be it a completely black room or a colorful artist’s studio, you can’t go wrong with this metal gem.

5. Black Metal Planter Stand

While pretty, this plant stand risks being a tad too simplistic, if you know what we mean. Ideally, combine it either with a brightly colored room or at the very least, a colorful plant to add some life!

6. Tall Copper Plant Stand

This copper stand is a tricky, albeit gorgeous, piece to accommodate. In the wrong setting, it can seem tacky, which is why we suggest going with a white decorum/pot/background (as in the picture) to avoid that effect.

7. Triangle Rustic Plant Stand Pedestal

A delightful stand that will prop up your plants in just the right way for them to get noticed. This stand works well on shelves, coffee tables, as well as directly on the floor—but only in minimalistic-style rooms.
