Window planters are a great way to spruce up any house, whether it is inside or outside. They are easy to make to make and can be fairly cheap to buy. They are a good solution to wanting to make a garden but not having a big enough yard or just plain trying to add some color to your house. There are two types of window planters, indoor and outdoor.
Flower boxes do such a beautiful job of dressing up windows that it seems a shame to limit their use to outdoors. You can spruce up just about any room by putting a window planter on a table in front of a window, the window sill, or on decorative brackets that you can attach just below the window. If you build your own, you can try your hand at decorative techniques such as painting, stenciling, or sponging to make it go with the motif of your room or you can simply stain it and bring out the natural beauty of the wood it's made from. Indoor window planter's help to bring the beauty of outside, inside and make it seem any room seem a little more relaxed and springy.
Outdoor window planters are the most commonly used type of window planters. If your house is looking sparse and your not wanting to put the effort in to paint the shutters or even the whole house, adding planter boxes to the outsides of your windows with some colorful spring flowers can spruce up a house in no time. If you are in to cooking, a window planter is perfect for you to plant an herb garden in; easy access to herbs all the time.
The design of the window planter will look best if you follow the design of your house. Whether making one or buying one, make sure the planter has the same types lines and architectural design as your house does. This will help make the design flow. It's important too to make note of how much sunlight the area you're planning to put the planter in gets, that way you know what type of plant will thrive best there.
