Whether you just bought your first plant or you already have a large collection, you are probably in need of at least one plant stand inside or outdoors.

You can find many options in stores or online, but they aren’t customized to the size of your plants and how you want to display them. Making your own is usually less expensive and allows you to get exactly what you want in the size you want.

Why should you use a plant stand?

There are numerous reasons you should use a stand for your plants:

  • Lower the risk of damage to your floors or furniture.
    Placing your plants on your floor, window sill, or furniture isn’t ideal. There is too much of a risk for water damage when you water your plants.
  • Give your plants access to light.
    A stand gives your plant some added height which will bring it closer to outdoor light from your windows.
  • Make your plants mobile.
    If you create a DIY plant stand with wheels, it will make it easier to move around. This is helpful if your plants are really heavy and you like to bring them to a sink for watering.
  • Utilize vertical space.
    Multi-tier stands allow you to display more than one plant in a small footprint and still give each one some space.
  • Add to your home décor.
    There are some really beautiful plant stands that you can use to coordinate with your home décor. You can match your wood furniture or add a bit of whimsy to your room since there are so many different plant stand ideas!

Now that you know why you should have a plant stand, you can start thinking about what exactly you want to create. I’ve gathered over 25 DIY plant stand ideas to inspire you.
