Planter boxes are often associated with gardens or outdoor spaces but there’s no reason why you can’t have stylish and functional planter boxes in your home too. With the trend for houseplants showing no sign of slowing down, there’s no shortage of ways to display your beloved plants. From surprisingly smart planters to elegant glass terrariums, there are myriad ways to get some foliage into your home or work environment. Here are 10 indoor planter box ideas to inspire you.
1. DIY wooden wall planter box
We love just about everything in this photo and the planter box is no exception! Custom made wall planter boxes can be fitted into any space or any room in your home. Wall planter boxes are easy to make too. Don’t forget to line wooden boxes or place potted plants on saucers to prevent any water seepage. Hanging plants like string of hearts, devil’s ivy and spider plants are ideal for wall mounted planter boxes.
2. Stairwell planter box
Planning a renovation project? Consider having a planter built into a stairwell or used as a dividing wall. Hanging and structural plants will work best in large feature planters so you can be really creative with textures and colours.
3. Indoor planter wall
If you have the space, a planter wall is an unusual and innovative way to bring greenery into your home in a big way. Use a planter wall as a room divider, or place it against a wall to instantly transform a room. If your office is due a revamp, suggest adding plants to your working space. Plants have been shown to boost worker productivity, and we think they look pretty spectacular too.
4. Window planter box
The beauty of window boxes is that you can probably squeeze one into your home, even if you don’t have much space. Available in a wide range of materials and sizes, you can plant them up with herbs, flowers, trendy succulents or cacti.

6. Crate planter box
One of the very best indoor planter box hacks has to be creating your own planter from old wooden crates. So easy to make, you can simply stand a potted plant in a crate or turn them sideways and add a shelf for more display space. You could add some rope and hang them or even wall-mount them. Rustic, inexpensive and easy to move around, crates are a great way to display your plants wherever you want them.
