While today designers consider the elegant appearance of tapered planters and rippled planters to be a piece of décor, these containers were originally designed to take advantage of the natural way roots grow. Modern planters now come in a wide range of styles, colors, and materials to enhance the image and atmosphere of any space. Choosing the right tapered or rippled planters for an upscale condo courtyard takes a careful eye towards the design of your space – but with a few tips, you can create exactly the right feel.
Why Use Tapered Planters?
The first thing to ask yourself is why you want to use tapered or rippled planters. Slim planters are usually perfect for dividing bigger courtyards into smaller conversation areas, perfect for encouraging community engagement. However, you may also need to use slimmer, modern planters simply because the space is too small to allow for larger planters. To save space while maintaining a feeling of grander scale, try a tapered planter with a bit more personality in color and material, such as PureModern’s PurePots Fluted Round Planter.
When to Choose Rippled Planters?
Many designers consider rippled planters to be a little more fun and funky, suitable for a condo association that caters to young professionals or college students. But the fact is that when used in the right color and material, rippled planters can also be a great addition to a sleek, minimal courtyard. For example, this Rippled Planter could be a bold choice in a courtyard with lots of color and pattern; or it could be a simple focal point in a courtyard filled with earth-tones or neutrals. In either space, it adds visual interest without being intrusive.
A Note On Choosing Materials
Modern planters come in many materials, from brightly colored fiberglass to sturdy metal, and even solid concrete. For a condo courtyard, you can experiment with the many options to create your desired look. Consider choosing fiberglass for affordability. Also keep in mind that our aluminum planters can be powder coated to match any color scheme. When selecting your overall design theme, keep your tenants in mind. For example, younger tenants will often appreciate a specific aesthetic that is different than older tenants, while middle-aged families may simply be more concerned with the safety of materials.
Keeping Your Look Upscale
To keep your courtyard looking upscale, it’s important to pay attention to the little details. When it comes to outdoor spaces, details such as the color and any decorative elements are what will bring your accessories to life. If you aren’t sure how to decide between multiple planters, choose the one that has the most interesting or unique detail for a richer, more interesting atmosphere.
