13 Hanging Planter Ideas To Bring Beauty To Any Space

What is summer without flowers? Boring!

Flowers give meaning to beauty, and they brighten up any dreary space. Right now, hanging planters or flowers are in vogue and can bring the summer look from the outdoors into your home. Hanging flowers is a genius way to use the vertical space in any room.

Improve the aesthetics of your windows, walls, and ceilings by artistically hanging bits of greenery. Hanging plants draw the eye upwards and add more natural beauty to your home without wasting any floor space. Dried flowers and trailing plants make the best hanging plants.

Here are 13 hanging planter ideas to make your indoor decor get some breath of fresh greenery—plus you can make any of these ideas work in an outdoor space too!

1. Statement Wall With Hanging Glass Planters

Get creative with the location of your hanging greenery by decorating a wall with glass planters. You can implement this wall on your patio, behind your sofa, or along your entry walkway. Plants love to play in the sun so ensure the wall will be receiving some direct sunlight.

Use metal holders or nails like Ivoladore does here to secure your planters to the wall to ensure an easy switch when you want to redecorate or merely water your plants.
