How to Use a Plant Wall Hanger to Add Greenery to Your Home


Plant wall hangers are an easy and space-saving way to add greenery to your home and an excellent way to display plants without taking up too much floor space.

If you want to hang a plant hook from your ceiling, make sure that you drill into a stud first, or the anchor or hook screw may not catch.

Natural light

Whether your interest or your decor style, plant wall hangers are an attractive way to add green to your space. Boasting a sleek design with access to sunlight while adding texture, they come in various materials with various shapes and designs to fit into any environment. From geometric metal or wire hangers with hanging wires for optimal light circulation to terrariums for 360-degree illumination, ceramic holders featuring artsy flairs, and driftwood displays that add rustic charm, macrame hangers create a boho chic aesthetic. There’s something for every taste imaginable regarding greening up your surroundings!

Living walls, green walls, plant walls, or edible walls are frequently found indoors; however, they can also add greenery and aesthetic appeal to outdoor spaces when placed outside. Also referred to as living walls, green walls, plant walls, or edible walls, these structures can range from an ivy vine growing along a building to intricate tapestries of different plants forming complex works of art.

Natural light can bring many health advantages, yet not all homes were designed with it in mind. Without moving your entire house to a sunnier spot, you can undertake other remodeling projects that will increase natural lighting significantly within your home.

Above your bed

Planting on the wall above your bed can be stylish and practical, adding greenery to any room. But to prevent accidental falls at night, ensure your planter is secured by using either a grid trellis or attaching it directly to a mounted shelf. These methods allow you to hang the planter without drilling holes into walls; you can even embellish its appearance further with other ornaments for an enhanced display!

Macrame plant hangers are an easy and stylish way to bring more greenery into your home. These knotted plant holders can hold an array of plants and herbs, and finding one that complements your decor is simple. Macrame hangers are particularly great if your space lacks windows – adding nature while improving air quality!

Hanging plants above your bed is an easy and cozy way to add texture and life to any bedroom and keep pets’ hair out of tangles. Just be sure only to hang nontoxic plants!

Even without much wall space, you can use the area above your bed as decor by layering. This approach works particularly well if your mattress is tall; try placing various-sized woven baskets to achieve an eye-catching combination of modernity and rusticity in this modern-rustic arrangement.

As another option, a wall of shelves in your bedroom provides extra storage and is an attractive way to display plants. This trend fits right into the grand millennial style and can easily be customized to your unique aesthetic; Instagrammer @jami_dawson used one with vintage corbel shelves as part of her decor to hold a collection of plates she collects!

Next to a window

Make the most of having windows in your living space by taking advantage of them by hanging plants in front of them. Not only can this give your room an instant refresh, but it also allows you to grow plants that require plenty of sunlight, like ferns or fuchsias. Consider hanging the plants using macrame holders or wall-mounted hangers with trellis patterns – either purchased at local hardware stores or created yourself.

Ceiling hooks for plants are another great alternative if you don’t want to drill into the wall, mainly if you are hanging an extremely light pot. To install this hook, find and mark your joist using your stud finder (a toggle bolt cannot screw into wall joists) with a pencil. Next, drill a hole slightly larger than the base diameter of your hook screw; be careful not to penetrate too deeply and hit any electrical wiring when doing this step.

Once you’ve drilled the hole, screw in a hook screw. Use a level to ensure it’s straight and secure before hanging your plant. For added flexibility and security, consider switching out for a toggle bolt instead if preferred; make sure that its hollow part faces down rather than upwards!

Some planters come equipped with clips specifically for hanging plants; if you want to experiment on your own, clamp ring wall brackets could be handy. While initially meant for mounting railings, these brackets work just as effectively on walls – featuring an attachable small sleeve that you attach directly onto the wall before inserting your plant.

These hooks are great for use with smaller plants like succulents and cacti or those that thrive best when placed in hanging environments like herbs. Furthermore, you can even use them to hang small baskets containing herbs or decorative decor.

In a corner

If a corner of your home doesn’t get much love, hanging plants might just be what it needs to make it shine again. This is particularly effective in spaces like an entryway or bathroom where greenery adds warmth and texture – there are countless creative ways to display one, from macrame holders to coat racks!

Esther created this plant trellis on her wall using a wire grid or panels from a metal stackable cube set, just like she did here in her small bathroom. Simply mark 2-4 locations under the top of the trellis where you would like hooks installed and drill a hole for each turn you intend to install – toggle bolts are excellent choices, similar to clothesline hooks – then screw in toggle bolts (identical to clothesline hooks used to hang clotheslines) securely into each of these marked holes; toggle bolts may need heavier-duty hooks depending on what you intend to hang for clotheslines to work correctly – make sure before turning anything that the plant can take it!

For a contemporary touch, hang small planters from an L bracket on the wall. An L bracket hanging is perfect for small farmers that won’t take up too much room and add minimalist style to any room. Hardware stores usually sell such racks, or you could create your DIY L bracket by drilling into the corner of the wall flat-faced wooden board and adding hooks large enough for your planter(s).

Use wooden hooks to add an organic element and unique touch to a wall-mounted planter, perfect for small plants that don’t require as much water, like succulents or trailing greenery. They also serve as an effective way of dressing up plain walls – as Cathie Hong did in her bright office!

Tension rods are another ideal way to hang plants. Affordable and non-damaging to walls, tension rods can be adjusted in height for custom distance between plant and ceiling.
