How to pick a planter for your faux tree & flowers 

Ready to spruce up your space with some lush greenery that doesn't require any of the hassles of live plants? We've got you covered! But, before you can sit back and enjoy your beautiful faux plants, you need to choose the perfect planter to show them off! Don't worry, our team of interior designers is here with expert tips to help you find the perfect match for your style and space!

Measurement Matters:

First things first, measure your space! It's essential to choose a planter that's the right height and width for your new faux plant. Make sure that the width of the planter is larger than the nursery planter that your new faux tree comes in. Avoid the dreaded mistake of choosing a planter that's too small and ends up making your tree tip over and fall!

No Such Thing as Too Big:

Do you have a smaller faux tree, and you feel like it's just not filling up the space enough? No worries! You can always add an oversized planter to make it look like your plant is thriving and taking over your space! There are planters of all sizes out there, from extra wide for added drama to tall and sleek to add some height!

Height Matters Too:

If you feel like you need a taller faux plant, but you can't seem to find the perfect one, try adding some cardboard or boxes to the bottom of the planter! This little trick can help add some height to your tree without the need for a whole new purchase! Plus, it's a great way to avoid returns and keep the faux plant you already love!

Texture is Key:

When it comes to choosing a planter, it's not just about the color; you also need to think about the texture! Think of home decor like fashion, and how jewelry can create depth and texture in any outfit. The same goes for lighting and greenery in any room! A faux plant can add much-needed color to any corner of your home, but the base will ultimately make the design and give it that edge your space needs. Look for planters crafted from jute, wood, or metal and ceramic for more oomph!

Colors that Pop:

Textures and hues are synonymous and complement one another. If your vibes are more neutral, opt for a vessel with lighter tones such as greys, light wood, and jute. But if you're looking to house something more tropical, consider a more vibrant statement piece made from ceramic, wood, or slate in those striking colors. Again, this depends on the message you're trying to convey, but we recommend you stick to secondary colors already in your design or neutral basic ones unless you're looking to create a strong focal point.

Think about the shape

Planters come in many shapes, including round, square, rectangular, and even irregular shapes. Consider the shape of your faux tree or flowers and choose a planter that complements it. For example, if your faux plant has a round shape, a round planter will be better for storing it. But for the window sill, a rectangular-shaped planter would be better.

What material should I choose for my planter?

  • Wood: Perfect for farmhouse or coastal decor, wooden planters inject a cozy vibe into your space.
  • Fiberglass: Water-resistant and lightweight, fiberglass planters are great for outdoor use.
  • Plastic: The most affordable option, plastic planters get the job done without breaking the bank.
  • Concrete: Versatile and modern, concrete planters are a trendy choice for contemporary decor.
  • Ceramic: A popular option, ceramic planters are great for making a statement with texture and hues.
  • Metal: Modern and affordable, metal planters are great for indoor use.
  • Slate: Known for their durability and modern aesthetic, slate planters are perfect for outdoor use.
  • Basket/woven: Ideal for boho, coastal, or modern farmhouse decor, woven baskets add character without overwhelming your space.
  • Clay: You’ve seen these all over social media and they’re the classic planters of
    humanity. Always en vogue, they’ll always be a timeless look in any space. We love them for their durability and classic appeal.

How to repot your faux tree

And the best part about faux plants? Repotting is a breeze! Simply remove your faux plant from its old pot, and it's ready to go into its new home. Plus, with faux plants, you can reuse your old materials, like faux moss or rocks, to save even more money.

So there you have it - our expert tips for choosing the perfect planter for your faux plants. With these guidelines in mind, you'll be able to create a stunning and low-maintenance indoor or outdoor oasis that's sure to impress!
