Nowadays, planters come in various materials, shapes, sizes, colors and price ranges. Considering the wide variety of plant containers currently available, an important question is: Why would anyone choose fiberglass planters for interior and exterior design projects?
In a nutshell, fiberglass planters are the only types of plant containers versatile enough to cater to all tastes, fit into any setting and comply with different functional demands. To better understand the benefits of using these planters in different design projects, here is a breakdown of the most common shapes and their uses.
1. Square and Rectangle Fiberglass Planters Are Excellent Additions to Contemporary Spaces
With their straight lines and sharp edges, square and rectangle fiberglass planters offer practical solutions especially for contemporary residential, commercial and public space design. Stylish and space-efficient, these planters can fit perfectly into corners and utilize space in a way that round planters can’t.
Providing a perfect combination of form and function, square and rectangle fiberglass planters can be used as focal points, privacy screens, freestanding walls, barriers or edging to create sophisticated indoor and outdoor spaces as well as signal pathways and direct foot traffic. Irrespective of aesthetic and functional needs, selecting square and rectangle fiberglass planters in appropriate sizes and colors is critical to achieving the look and feel you want.
2. Round and Oval Fiberglass Planters Are Perfect for Traditional and Modern Spaces
Thanks to their classic look, round and oval fiberglass planters can match any decor, from traditional to contemporary and everything in between. However, these planters are particularly suitable for spaces that could use the warm presence of round lines and soft edges combined with beautiful flowers and lush greenery. That being said, the elegant curves of round and oval fiberglass planters make them wonderful choices for organic design projects.
Besides being used as sleek centerpieces, decorative borders or space dividers, round and oval fiberglass planters with visually pleasing profiles, such as the Congress Extra Large Round Planter and Pego Oval Planter, can make a definite statement to guests and passers-by.
3. Tapered Fiberglass Planters Can Take Any Decor to the Next Level
Tapered planters were originally designed to better accommodate natural root growth. But designers, decorators and landscapers have started to use these types of planters especially for their sleek profile and elegant appearance. Combined with the right decor elements, rectangle and round tapered fiberglass planters can boost both the curb appeal and atmosphere of a space.
Available in different colors and sizes, tapered fiberglass planters are perfect for dividing bigger spaces into smaller intimate areas. Furthermore, slim tapered planters are great additions to spaces that are too small for large plant containers. To save space and also make small areas feel grander, you can try our Saint Tropez Round Bullet Planters or Toulan Tapered Square Planters, which are also available in smaller sizes.
At Jay Scotts, we also offer ribbed tapered planters, which are excellent options for fun and funky design projects. Adding visual interest without being too intrusive, ribbed tapered planters like the Alicante Ribbed Round Planter and San Jose Ribbed Round Tapered Planter can be used as focal points or as complementary features to other elements especially in contemporary minimalist decor.
4. Fiberglass Planters Eliminate Aesthetic Concerns
When it comes to fiberglass planters, a common concern is the finish that can make a planter look and feel “cheap”. But that’s not the case with the high-quality fiberglass planters we offer. All of our fiberglass planters have a smooth, elegant and durable finish that is achieved through professional application of high-grade automotive paint systems, which provide superior protection in all weather conditions.
And because there’s no point in creating lovely plant decor if everyone notices just the container, we have developed sophisticated planter colors and finishes that enhance the beauty of different plants and flower arrangements rather than taking center stage. As such, our high-quality, high-style fiberglass planters are ideal for any interior or exterior design project.
Most designers, decorators and landscapers love fiberglass planters because they can be easily incorporated into any setting. Furthermore, these planters give designers the ability to come up with different shapes and sizes that can better suit specific design styles and color palettes. Should you require a specific shape or size for a project, a custom planter may be in order. Jay Scotts is happy to provide a quote for a customer planter of your design.
