For many homeowners, their first thoughts of wall decor is to purchase pictures and paintings to fill the empty spaces. Wall decor does not have to be limited to these items. There are a variety of home decor accessories that can liven up a room and can also bring the garden motif into your home. Wall planters and trellises can offer a more unique feature and look than your standard framed print.

The trellis no longer belongs exclusively to the garden. There are many styles now available for indoor use. They have the ability to add a patterned design and three dimensional aspects to your walls. You can use these with or without plants. The only tricky part is to hold them in place. My advice is to use an architectural molding as the decorative finishing touch to help secure the trellis in place.

Say farewell to your ordinary wall decor items. With versatile wall planters you can instantly brighten up boring areas with vibrant colors and textures. There are so many different patterns, textures, styles, materials and designs they nearly steal the show from the plant inside. Some of the materials that are available are: stoneware, stainless steel, copper, marble, resin, acrylic, wood, cement and glass. They come in many shapes, sizes, colors and they can fit in everyone's budget. You are certain to find a wall planter that will compliment traditional to modern interior themes.

All of us are trying to make our homes look and smell fresh, which can be a tiresome task. There are some wall planters that are specifically designed to purify and cleanse the air inside closed spaces, naturally. With one of these planters you will never have to cover up odors again. We also live in hectic stressful times. You can find some wall planters that have LED backlights that help create a calm relaxed ambience inside your home. Most planters are easy to mount, come fully assembled and are space efficient. They help to soften a corner, accent an art object or become the focal point of the room.

For the adventurous, there are some unique kits that are available. These help you grow flowers, succulents, ferns right on your living room wall. The plants and flowers grow in a planting grid with a watering tray on top that trickles water down to each pocket of the grid. All excess water is collected in a tray on the bottom. These kits bring a breath-taking plant display to your home.

Wall planters and trellises create an outdoor look to your indoor setting. It is a perfect way to show off your prized plants and flowers. If you do not have a green thumb there are self watering planters that come equipped with built in reservoirs. This makes it simple to keep your plants healthy with minimal effort on your part. If you are still worried about taking care of live plants you can go the artificial route.

It used to be that artificial plants and flowers were very expensive and not very realistic looking. In today's market place, due to their manufacturing process and technology, they can replicate these plants right down to the most minute details. Most are made of silk screened polyester and are also hand painted to give them the details that are only found in nature.

Before purchasing your planter or trellis, you should decide which wall you will be hanging it on. It is best to choose a smooth wall since the planter or trellis will add texture and depth to the wall and to the viewer's eyes. Selecting your planter with your chosen accent colors, while distributing them carefully, will tie your decorating scheme together.

To sum it all up, these wall accessories are an important and attractive way to enhance any wall for any room of your home. They help change the entire feel and atmosphere of an area, bringing it to life as they add beauty and color. By simply adding this decor, you will not only help yourself but will also be helping your environment.
