Spring is almost round the corner and if you are puzzling over outdoor decor and furniture, here’s a cool idea to refresh your house look on the outside – add window box planters! This is a cool and a bit old-fashioned idea, which will bring a cool fresh touch to your house. What to plant in there? Flowers, greenery, foliage, even veggies and berries! You may DIY or buy them – as many as you need. Here are some ideas you may like.
Wooden Window Box Planters
Window box planters are more often made of wood, this a traditional material, which can be easily reached. Consider the outer look of your house and then choose the look of your box: modern and sleek, traditional and paneled, rustic and slatted. Take a box and paint it in any color you like without adding special touches – this is a more modern and fresh idea. If you want a natural touch, cover the box planter with twigs and branches completely, if you prefer traditional and classic looks – go for paneled box planters. A rustic stained box planter will be a nice idea for a farmhouse, the darker the stain is, the bolder the contrast will be.
Metal Window Box Planters
A metal window box planter is a more seldom thing but they are no less stylish and much more durable than wooden window box planters. If you prefer a more modern look, choose a sleek surface, maybe a painted one. If you like more traditional and refined looks, go for a window planter with potted plants and flowers inside. Such a planter allows changing the plants and flowers inside anytime you want.
after choosing a planter, you’ll need to choose plants and blooms for it. And again – if you want a rustic feel, add berries, cabbages, herbs and mix them with blooms. If you prefer more modern looks, fill the planter with greenery and foliage.
