Tall Ceramic Planters

Ready to bring nature inside your home in a quirky, stylish way? Tall ceramic planters are practical and elegant solutions for all your floral and houseplant needs, but their benefits go beyond their noticeable decorative impact.

In fact, introducing longer vertical lines will make your room look taller and airier than it actually is, which is especially a big plus in smaller settings or busy living rooms.

As for the decor side of things, you can actively use these tall pots to reinforce your palette and interior style.

Regardless of whether you’ll be using them for flowers or houseplants, here are ten different ideas to experiment with.

Have you already found the exact spot for your new tall ceramic planters?

If you’re placing them in a particularly busy area surrounded by patterned items or furniture pieces, then planters in a monochrome design would be the safest choice.

If, on the contrary, your new tall ceramic planters are next to neutral or monochrome items, you could seize the opportunity to introduce some more attention-grabbing colors, whether through a pattern or a design relying on several hues.

Particularly popular in the Middle East and Europe, glazed ceramic is an elegant alternative that will immediately bestow a sophisticated feel on your tall planters.

It will also result in a brighter, eye-catching finish that will reflect any glint of the sun in a whimsical way.

Here’s a different take on the tall ceramic planter idea that’s been gaining more and more popularity over the past few years, especially thanks to minimalist and Scandinavian inspiration.

Instead of a taller piece, prop up an average-size pot with a wooden stand.

The result will be just as slender, and you’ll also get to match your other wood finishes.

Most tall ceramic planters tend to be between 16 and 24” in height. However, if you were planning on placing yours next to some even taller items (for example, your fireplace), don’t be afraid to go even bigger!

For example, a 3 foot tall ceramic planter would create a beautifully balanced result next to your front door.

Will you use your tall ceramic planter to further decorate your patio or garden?

Unless it’s in a sheltered spot, there’s something that you really can’t afford to forget about before choosing colors and designs: weather resistance, and especially UV protection.

So far, we’ve looked at tall ceramic planters in a monochrome finish and a patterned or colorful style, but did you know that there’s also a creative compromise that you could experiment with?

Instead of being painted, some patterned pots rely on an uneven texture that creates slightly different levels and sections. This means that they’ll translate into hypnotizing tricks of shadow and light.

If you need more than one tall ceramic planter and you’re after a cohesive feel, save yourself some money by purchasing a set.

You don’t necessarily need to stick to the exact same pot. For example, some planters in the same style but different heights can be a conscious decorative choice, particularly when placed in decreasing order.

Contemporary tall ceramic plant pots

Your garden or patio can be the mirror of your contemporary interiors, and your new tall ceramic planters can actively reinforce it.

The trick is to stick to monochrome designs (even better if in neutral colors) and clean or symmetrical lines. This simple style will also help you maintain the actual plant in the spotlight.

What if you need a home for a few more plants but haven’t got that much floor space left? In that case, some tall pottery planters can optimize it.

Instead of looking for one pot per plant, scout for layered designs with room for an additional one (or two) at the bottom.

Our advice Buying Guide

A room is never complete without a touch or hint of nature. Unfortunately, interior plants are added into homes as last-minute accessory items. Decorative containers like tall ceramic planters are likewise chosen in a haphazard and rushed manner. Before you dash to your local garden center, check out our buying guide as it is guaranteed to help you pick the right planter for your interiors.

How to select the style and color of tall ceramic planters?

When you're unsure of the style that will look great within your home, take a close look at your hardware. Use the color or finish of furniture legs, hinges, and knobs as a guide in selecting a finish for your ceramic planters. Brushed metallic finishes over tall ceramic planters will make your home look modern and contemporary compared to shiny ones.

If you're thinking about grouping a series of tall ceramic planters to beautify your space, interior designers would suggest you consider series instead of groupings. There's no longer a need for you to cluster Peace Lilies in one corner anymore. By creating a series, you'll have a more stunning room décor especially when the plants and planters are in staggering heights and positioned linearly.

Transitional interiors would call for more contemporary ceramic planters with rich or creamy finishes. Stark, modern interiors that consist mostly of whites, grays, and blacks, however, would need tall ceramic planters with vivid colors to brighten up the space.

How to determine the right size for ceramic planters?

The tall ceramic planter that is right for your space will depend on the size of the plant that you'll be placing inside the container. Basically, the planter's size should be proportional to the plant's size. A tabletop plant will require a decorative planter that has a diameter of at least an inch larger than the plant's grow-pot, which is its ugly plastic nursery pot. As for a large floor plant, it'll require a tall ceramic planter with a diameter that's 2-4 inches larger than its grow-pot.

How to care for ceramic planters?

Decorative containers for indoor-use like tall ceramic planters need to be watertight without any holes for drainage. Otherwise, the leakage will damage your carpeting or floor finishes. Ceramic is the best material for indoor planters as it breathes or sweats. But, you'll also need a plastic liner that's watertight to be placed inside the planter. If you'll be purchasing a container with holes, make sure you fill the holes with epoxy or any other waterproof material to ensure no damage is caused to your home.
