The gardening season has almost started, and maybe even started for some of you. The problem of lack of space is what we often experience not only indoors but also outdoors. If you are one of those people, it is high time to start thinking about how to include all of the flowers, plants, and herbs that you want in your small outdoor space. There are some space-saving solutions out there, and hanging and vertical planters are the leaders. Today I’d like to share these to help you save space and expand whatever you want.
Ladder-like planters are one of the most popular solutions for small gardens, patios and balconies. The principle of saving space is simple: you just put one planter on top of another and that’s it. You can vary the size of the planters, the height, the color of the ladder, etc. – it’s entirely up to you. Such planters are very easy to make, no purchase is required.
The principle of stacking is another great idea that doesn’t require any skills. Just take your planters and stack them on top of each other. It’s about securing them well. The planters can be ash, wood, plastic, china, or other, and you get many types in one without losing too much floor space.
Vertical planters for boxes and pallets
You can build a whole planting system out of boxes or pallets and grow herbs or whatever you want there. The good idea is to add boards to mark the plants.

Although there are kitchens without a kitchen island, it's still a popular feature for large cooking spaces, and we see it here and there a lot. It's not just a functional piece that you can cook, wash, peel, and even eat with if there's a dining area - it's part of your kitchen decor. One of the hottest trends right now to add an edge to your kitchen is rocking a statement kitchen island. It can be distinguished by its color, style, or just different in everything - it depends on what impression you want to make. Check out some trendy ideas below and choose!
Suitable but excellent
The most popular idea right now is to choose a kitchen island that matches the rest of the kitchen but is a different color, e.g. B. a black island in a white kitchen or a plum-colored island in a gray room. If you want a more cohesive look, prefer the same countertops for the entire kitchen, and you can make a backsplash from the same material too. If not - choose a different countertop for the island so your look doesn't match at all. Only with style will your kitchen become more eye-catching. You can also try to match the color of the cabinet countertops with the island and vice versa - this is another eye-catching idea.
If you want to add more edge to the room, if you want to feel like a famous interior designer, choose your own high-contrast kitchen island - it should be different in everything including its look, style, design, and color. Opt for an industrial kitchen with a minimalist kitchen island made of marble, for a glamorous room with a rustic kitchen island made of wood, for a minimalist kitchen with a modern kitchen from the middle of the century - combine them to make a unique statement and your kitchen to give its own character.
