Planters are a key player in any interior landscape project. They set the mood of the room and are a major design element that can be modified by shape, color, and size. Many planters today are turning away from the traditional ceramic materials which were fragile and heavy for lighter, more durable, eco friendly options.
Most planters now come in a variety of shapes and can fit any environment with ease. The traditional look was a round container that basically held the plant, while now the game has changed to include all shapes and forms. Some top looks for 2016 are the square and the tall planters that give a modern edge to any interior designers arsenal.
Companies like Architectural Supplements, are designing some beautiful, well constructed planters with a huge color swatch. Their process produces museum quality planters that shine like a new car. The price of these planters aren’t cheap, but they are one of the top of the line brands in the industry.
There are cheaper more commercial options out there that let the plant shine without any distraction. These planters are a great option for large projects or for those that need a more basic look. These containers have a smaller color swatch and don’t normally come in a variety of shapes. They usually consist of cylinders, rectangles and low profile options and can be found with companies like Scape Supply, who provide a variety of different priced planters.
As weight has come down and new materials are being used, the size of the container becomes easier to manage. With planters over 24″, weight can become an issue. With manufacturers like Riverside Plastics, size is not a concern. They specialize in large planters that are at home indoors or out. They can be used to set off a patio or pool area as well as a lobby or large entry way. They are often seen in malls and outdoor pedestrian areas.
The shape, size, and color of the planter accents the plant and can help bring cohesiveness to the interior design.
