When your windowsills don’t have enough space for your plants, you need plant-stands to put your plants on. The one above is from Ikea and called Satsumas. I like it because it is airy and doesn’t take up too much space. It is placed in the corner between my two windows in the kitchen, where plants get good light from two directions without being in direct sun. Only negative with this plant-stand is that no platform can take more than 5 kgs. That resulted in some re-organizing of my plants. (Picture also reveals that I need to do something about my electric outlets on the floor and all the cables…).
The above is the plant-stand I previously had in the kitchen, with the large aloe vera on it. It presently stands in the bedroom with a pot with fake flowers on it.
In the bedroom in the background in the middle is a white plant-stand. I had it outside until just the other day and only took it inside recently and cleaned it. It will have a plant on it later on when a lot of plants move indoors in few weeks time. Autumn is approaching though it isn’t cold outside just yet. That one was a find just outside at the garbage-disposal at my previous flat. I’ve used it for various plants over the years ever since. Not really my type of item if we are talking style… I like simpler things. At least it is white.
In the livingroom I’ve enlarged the area for putting plants by adding a sideboard. Presently it mainly houses decorative items, but that will change soon enough when plants move indoors. The pot of the plant in the corner to the left stands on another pot to get it higher up. That’s a temporary solution.
This (above) is more my kind of plant-stand when it comes to style. It is black, wired, plastic-coated stand. I bought that at a garden-shop yeas ago and have used it on and off. It was outside until today when I took it indoors and cleaned it. The funny thing is that now all kinds of plant-stands of this type start to appear. Lots of them.
This is how it looked outside. The plant now got a terracotta plate under it and another stand.
The above one comes from Lagerhaus.se and costs SEK179. They also have it in a smaller version that costs SEK99. This is really useful. You can use it turned either way.
The problem with some of these plantstands is their size. They are only done for smaller pots which limits their usefulness.
Th prices for these ones varies wildly. The ones from Lagerhaus.se are the least expensive. There are others out there that are much more expensive.
This one is from NORM architects. What it costs? No idea. Who sells it? No idea. But it is goodlooking. Love it.
This one is nicelooking (found it on Pinterest), but it looks dangerous… Don’t come close or it will fall over?
These ones are from NORDIC LIVING and costs around SEK 450.
There are many more out there. Either google for plant stands or look them up at Pinterest.
Of course you can also hang your plants from above. There are various solutions for that too, but that is for another time.
