Step 1

Deciding What to Hang

Adding a touch of greenery to your home office can create a more inviting or inspiring space. To counteract the need of keeping as much desk space open as possible for work, opt for hanging your plants versus setting them on the desk. You get the touch of greenery in the space without the plant getting in the way of workflow. Take a look at your space and decide the best location to hang your plants. This will vary with every space, but keep in mind the width of your pots and plant overhang. You will want to position your hook to be centered on your pot allowing an estimated 2 inch additional space between your plant and wall so it will hang loosely and away from the wall.

Step 2

Marking the Spot


Using a pencil and measuring tape, draw a tiny spot on your ceiling marking the location for the hook. Remember to put this at the center of your pot plus an estimated two extra inches over to give your pot and plant space between your wall and the pot.

Step 3

Installing the Hooks


Once your spot is decided and you have made your mark, install your drill bit into your drill. Center your drill bit on the mark you made and drill into the ceiling about ¼ inch up. This will give a start for the hook to grab in and install easier. Take your National Hardware Ceiling Hook and twist into the pre drilled hole until the base of the hook is flush with the ceiling. There should be several twists on the hook to accomplish this. The hook should feel snug once screwed in. If you are only hanging one pot, continue to the next step. For additional pots, repeat the steps for the next hook and flower pot. A gain measure for a spacing that allows room between your wall and the now other hanging pot so the pots don't touch.

Hanging your Pots


Once the Hooks are installed, it's time to hang your plants! Using the chain or rope that is securely attached to your pots, loop onto the National Hardware Ceiling Hook. Once it feels secure, gently let go and allow it to hang. You are all done and can now enjoy your new plants in your space!
