Contemporary Space Saving Corner Plant Stand

Contemporary Space Saving Corner Plant Stand

Arlmont & Co.

Small living spaces can be frustrating for avid plant lovers who value square footage and their daily dose of greenery in equal measures. With a corner plant stand you won’t have to sacrifice on either. As well as making use of redundant corners, tiered corner stands also maximize vertical space and help free up floors and countertops.

For a balanced arrangement, always place the big, tall plants on the lower tiers and the small and vine style plants up top.

Mid Century Modern Wood Plant Stand

Mid Century Modern Wood Plant Stand

George Oliver

No indoor plant stand style guide would be complete without this all-time classic. Simple but effective, mid-century wood plant stands fit a wide range of spaces and decors. Plus, their adjustable size provides flexibility as your plant baby grows, or you decide to replace it with another one. The downside is that they only fit one plant pot each but, if you have space, they look great in sets of two or three, of different heights.

Make your indoor plant stand easier to move around by putting felt furniture pads on its legs. That way you can easily slide it around when cleaning or to give it more or less light.

Orren Ellis

Make your plant the sole focus of attention with a transparent acrylic indoor plant stand. The clever design creates a magical floating effect, as if your plant is hovering in thin air! Unlike more elaborate plant stands, the transparent acrylic material does not distract from the plants on display and also has the added advantage of fitting all color schemes.

High plant stands are a great option for displaying indoor vines and climbers to their full potential, allowing them to elegantly cascade down the side and give your home a fun urban jungle vibe.

Chic Metal Pedestal Plant Stand Indoor

Chic Metal Pedestal Plant Stand Indoor


Give your houseplants the podium they deserve with a chic metal pedestal plant stand. Often constructed of iron, the slim frames are deceptively strong and sturdy and their open, airy look makes them ideal for minimalist and modern-urban interiors. If you’re looking for a stand to jazz up your interior, why not go for a metal pedestal finished in a lustrous brushed gold.

Big indoor plants are striking but can get quite pricey. As an alternative, you can create a similar impact with a cluster of smaller plants at different heights.

Buying Guide

Potted plants can be the only respite for apartment dwellers yearning for some green, whilst living in an urban sprawl. And beyond the air purification benefits and the dopamine boost that tending for them gives you, they can also be an aesthetic addition to any home. Especially, if you use decorative indoor plant stands to display them tastefully.

Use stands of varying heights to create a layered effect, let that special bouquet of colors pop out with a vintage wooden stand or use an art deco styled plant stand to distract the users from an insipid looking plant that’s a season away from blooming.

When it comes to plant stands, nothing is written in stone. Just about anything from upturned tomato cages to milk crates, side tables, and wire crates can be converted into plant stands. But when you pick wood as the material for the plant stand, it gives you a great opportunity to be creative.

You can pick from minimalistic designs, like the mid-century inspired four hardwood legged stands that nests the planter inside it, or you can go conventional and pick a contemporary wooden table with a surface, for pots that demand more soil and will be heavier. The latter can double up as your side table when not in use.

Tiered wooden plant stands with shelves allow you to save space (micro apartments) and can be used to layer your plants according to the size. Tall plants in the lowest tier, shorter ones in the middle and the shortest ones on the top tier works best. If there are a variety of plants, use stands of different sizes to arrange them.

Pedestal styled stands are very attractive, like the ones made from mooring boards, ones crafted from a single tree trunk or more detailed ones with intricate art work on them. In the end mix up patterns, textures, and finishes as long as they harmonize with each other.

The best type of wood for your plant stands will be native species that can resist the prevalent weather conditions, especially that you may decide to use them outdoors one day.

If you are buying off the shelf, look for maple, cedar, oak, rubberwood, mango wood, pine, and poplar. These are durable, resist the occasional bump or two and stain very well.

Plywood might also be a good choice if you are shopping on a budget. But it can’t beat the durability and the wonderful patterns that come with hardwood.

Some types of wooden plant stands are extremely easy to make in your weekend woodworking project. But it might not be easy to acquire the finesse and finish that you get with professionally made pieces. It depends on the look that you are trying to achieve. Go DIY by all means for a rustic chic look. But if your home has more of a traditional, classic themed décor, go for premade stands.

Water and wood don’t go together. So always enquire about the type of stain used on the wood. You need a waterproof sealant that protects the wood from rot and mildew.

If the indoor potted plants don’t get enough sunlight, then you might want to incorporate grow lights into the stand. It might sound like too much right now, but it isn’t that difficult.
