Use Planters for a Dynamic Impact

Choosing the right planter will significantly impact the design of a space. Work with various types, shapes, heights, and colors of planters to fit your specific design for the area. Choose a planter style that complements the plant to give the room the maximum design impact. Various planter options to consider include concrete or metal containers, terra-cotta or stone pots, and resin planters.

Find Plants with Unique Textures and Shapes

Leaves can make a huge impact on the space. Choose plants with leaves that draw the eye like the green and white striped Zebra plant or the red striped green leaves of the Fittonia plant. Leaves that have unique textures and shapes are a natural design gold mine.

Incorporate Plants with Colorful Leaves

A plant is a unique and natural design element that can enhance the look of any space. To ensure that your design has the most impact, incorporate plants with colorful leaves. Make sure that the coloring in the leaves works well with the principal color scheme in the room. Choose plants with colors that complement the space but give that extra pop of color

Use Lighting to Your Advantage

To promote healthy growth of the plants, they need to be placed in spots that offer light or shade, depending on the necessary care. Lighting is a crucial factor to consider when spotlighting plants as an important facet in the design. Use the ambient lighting to your advantage and place the planter close to natural light from windows for special showcasing.

Planter Placement is Important

The placement of the planter is important since it can be utilized to channel traffic in the area or give special attention to a space. To create the most impact through natural beautification, design the space around the plants rather than simply adding plants to the area as an afterthought. Make sure you allow ample space for plant growth. Then get creative as you beautify the space. You can place the plants in unusual places for a more dramatic effect like in-ground planters that are truly part of the entire design. Wall planters are a modern trend that can amplify the natural beauty.

Create more dynamic spaces in commercial facilities that you are designing or managing simply by using the power of natural beauty through plants.
