Wrought Iron Window Box Planters Add Instant Curb Appeal
Whether you have an older home that needs something new outside or a new home that you want to add some elegance too, wrought iron window box planters might be the answer. These planters can be attached to almost any window, and you can add any kind of flower or herb that you want. They make beautiful additions to a kitchen or living room window as these are often on the front of the home.
When you purchase the planters, don't paint them or apply any kind of stain. Leave them in the original condition and color to add a rustic appearance to the outside; especially if the home is brick or has the same kind of wrought iron details on the porch or windows. As you start planting flowers, add colors that are bright and vibrant. These will bring a spark to a white or lightly colored home or one that is dark in color. When you use wrought iron window box planters, you want to add some kind of liner so that you don't have dirt falling all over the ground. This can also help the plants take root after they are in the soil.
If you don't like the original color of the planter, then try to find something that will blend well with the shutters, and window treatments that you might have or any other kind of metal that is on the home. This will create a uniform appearance on the outside of the house, while giving you a beautiful look for the flowers that you plant. Install the planters in a place where the flowers will get plenty of sunlight. One idea is to add a small cover over the planter at the top of the window that can protect the plants from harsh weather or extreme sunlight.
