Our Favorite Indoor Planters of all Shapes and Sizes

Plants have quickly become one of our favorite go-to pieces of decor to decorate just about any room in our homes. From our bookshelves, to larger plants in our living rooms, or even cute mini plants on our bedsides or desks, it seems like we have slowly but surely sprinkled indoor planters all over our homes.  

Faux or Real, Bring on The Plants!

Luckily we have become just a little better at keeping this greenery alive, although we still need some work on those tiny succulents. There’s just something about having live plants in our homes that makes any space feel just a little more “grown-up” and put together.

Even a few faux plants can do the trick for those of you who are hesitant to invest in the real thing, because you don’t want to kill the real thing. We feel your pain!

Where Are Our Favorite Places to Get Our Indoor Planters?

Either way, it’s pretty clear we love indoor plants and realized that as much as we have chatted and photographed our plants, we really haven’t ever discussed where we find the indoor planters this greenery ends up living in. So that’s our mission today!

Here’s a list of where we look first for indoor planters of all shapes and sizes:

  • HomeGoods: Great budget-friendly and unique planters for small to medium plants.
  • West Elm: A little more pricey, but classic (and quality) planters of for small, medium, and large plants.
  • IKEA: They have a whole indoor plant section, which is chock full of planters. We especially love their lined baskets that are perfect for fiddle leafs or some of the indoor plants they sell.
  • Target: Of course Target has gorgeous indoor planters mixed in with the seasonal line of decor… what doesn’t Target have?!
  • CB2: Like West Elm, CB2 is pricier but has such gorgeous and quality pieces. Definitely worth a splurge for a statement plant in a high traffic area.
  • World Market: They have great options for terrariums, but some can definitely double as planters.
  • Anthropologie: Pricey options but their indoor planters are very unique and gorgeous!
  • Crate & Barrel: Crate & Barrel usually has a smaller section and often only seasonally, but they’re always worth checking out just in case!
  •  Urban Outfitters: Usually their selection is pretty small BUT they usually have extremely unique options. Urban Outfitters is also notorious for stylish small space living, so definitely check there for petite options.
  • Etsy: We have never bought any planters from Etsy, but they have a large selection so this may be a great place to look if you are looking for something super specific and can’t seem to find it anywhere else.
  • Big Box Hardware Stores: We aren’t against buying an indoor planter from a big box hardware store, but we try to look elsewhere first. Their options are perfectly fine, but often missing that “wow factor”.

*Important Tip: Regardless of where you buy your indoor planters, be sure to look for ones with proper drainage. If your plant requires drainage, the planter should have a hole in the bottom on the planter in order to do this. Your plant is doomed without that necessity. Trust us…we’ve made that mistake!

Indoor Planters We’re Currently Loving

Large Indoor Planters

Modern Chevron Stand

This planter from Casey’s family room is not just one of our favorite planters… but one of our favorite items in the house! It was a splurge, but she gets so many compliments on it. Plus it’s such a statement piece and great quality for the price.

Mid-Century Wood Leg Planter

This is another large indoor planter and it has been giving us heart eyes for awhile now! It’s a splurge, so we are waiting for the perfect spot for it. The pot also comes in a few colors, although we are pretty in love with the clean white option. #someday

Basket Planters

Baskets are probably the most cost-effective indoor planter option. IKEA has some great lined baskets, but you can use just about any basket as long as you keep the plant in its original holder. You may have to take it out of the basket for watering, but that has never been a problem for us.

Medium Indoor Planters

Medium Geometric Planter

We love this option because these would work in just about any room and could also look cute with just about plant combo. We also love how this set of two can be paired next to each other with two different plants.

Gray Bowl Planter

Love the color, texture, and overall style of this bowl planter. Because of its low and wide profile, we think this could be a perfect accent on a coffee table, dining table,  or even kitchen countertop.

Mid-Century Knock-Off Planter

This planter looks very similar to the large mid-century planter we have a huge crush on but for a FRACTION of the cost! Not only is it on-trend, but it’s definitely one of the most budget friendly options on the list.

Gold Geometric Planter

We recently bought this planter for a succulent project and really love it. Plus the price is under $15, which seemed like a steal for the size and quality.

Shop This

Wood Carved Planter

Pretty obsessed with everything about these wood carved planters! The look, texture, size, and price are all SO good. The smaller one is under $15 and the larger one is under $30.

Small Indoor Planters

Ceramic Animal Planters

These mini ceramic animal planters are quirky and way too adorable! How fun would these be on a shelf in a little kid’s room or even nursery? Watering the little plants and watching them grow with the kiddos could be such a cool way to keep them involved.

Blush Planter

We’re loving a hint of blush lately and this planter is no different. This could be a great accessory to a desktop or shelf, especially for the $19 pricetag!
