What is a Cachepot?

The term "cachepot" comes from French and literally means "flower pot". It is a container, often decorative, used to hide a simpler pot in which a plant is planted. The materials vary from ceramic to metallic, from plastic to textile, offering a wide range of options for every interior design style.

Why Use a Cachepot?

The cachepot not only hides less aesthetic vases, but also protects the furniture from water stains and dirt. It is ideal for those who want to add a touch of green to their home without sacrificing style. It also makes it easier to transport plants for cleaning or relocation depending on the season or sun exposure.

How to Choose the Right Cachepot

When choosing a cachepot, it is important to consider the style of furniture and the color of the walls. A cachepot in tone with its surroundings creates a harmonious effect, while a boldly designed piece can become a real focal point of the room. The size is equally crucial: it must be large enough to contain the vase, but not too bulky.

Materials and Trends

Ceramic and terracotta cachepots are classic and fit well into a rustic or traditional decor. We find the single-color ones in the same material which add a touch of elegance and are perfect for a more modern style.

Maintenance and Care

Caring for the cachepot depends on the material. Ceramic ones can be cleaned with a damp cloth, while metal ones may require specific products to avoid oxidation. It is important to ensure that the cachepot does not retain water, to avoid rotting of the plant roots.

The importance of quality and design

When choosing a cachepot, it is important to pay attention to the quality and design of the product. Good quality cachepots are made with resistant and long-lasting materials that guarantee long life. Furthermore, the design of the cachepot must be in harmony with the style of the environment in which it will be placed. Cachepots can be found in different styles, from classic to modern, to adapt to any type of decor.
