Keep Your Sun-Loving Indoor Plants Happy With This Clever Window Shelf
When you love plants but don’t have outdoor space for them, it can be difficult to find a spot in the sun for everyone. Window sills are only so wide, after all. A window shelf, available on Etsy, is one perfect solution to this problem. Made of clear acrylic with up to four tiers, it can help you turn limited space into a thriving indoor garden.
The shelf, sold by Etsy shop Indoor Window Gardens, comes in three sizes: two tiers ($74), three tiers ($104), and four ($129). While they vary in length (at 34”, 45”, and 54”, respectively), all three of the shelves are 20 inches wide and six inches deep.
According to the seller, the shelves are lightweight and arrive fully assembled so they’re easy to install. If your window doesn’t have a trim, the shop will supply a mounting block. If you have blinds, you may need an extension mount, which the shop can also provide one upon request (though it’s not clear whether this will cost extra).
The window plant shelf is currently the only item Indoor Window Gardens carries, and it has a five-star rating with 131 reviews.
“What a fantastic find,” reads one. “This made my small apartment space so much more accommodating to my plant obsession! Well made and great instructions with all necessary equipment besides maybe a hammer! Very pleased with this product.”
“I LOVE THIS SHELF!” reads another. “Packaged very well to avoid damage, and came with clear instructions and tools to mount and adjust the spacing. Sellers answered questions quickly and with care. The only problem? I want more windows to hang more shelves!”
The reviews also include many photos, which you can use for inspiration as you imagine your own window garden setup. Find the shelf for sale on Etsy here.

I love how easily this was hung on my window & how airy it is so I feel like I have a lot more light in my kitchen. It will also be easy to take down when I want to wash my windows which is great.
So many great things to say. These arrived promptly, with great packaging and instructions and follow up from the seller. And the shelves themselves are really high quality, very ingenious design. You can customize them–I only use three in one window. They are perfect for what I wanted. Now I’ve moved, and I’m thinking about buying another set!
I want to thank the genius for inventing these hanging shelves. I hung it myself in the dining room window for my plants. It was the perfect solution to keep my cats away.
Bought this as a gift and they loved it!
Beautiful ! Easy to install ! Everything is provided, even the level ! (Okay, maybe not the hammer.)
I’ve had this shelf for a little over 4 months. I have to many cactus and succulents they are taking over and this shelf works great for me. My sister had purchased one way before me for her ever growing orchid collection. We both enjoy these very much and if I had more windows to put these in I would get another!
Love it. I dressed up a window that faced the street and now I have lots of little planters with cactus, etc. It’s really cute and you can do so many things with it. like put little pumpkins for Halloween or other holiday decorations on it. Anything that is not too heavy. It’s a great idea!
These are really nice. I winter a lot of plants and these shelves, while freeing up needed window exposure, add such a nice, clean look.

So gorgeous!! Absolutely love! Will be the perfect place for our plants when they come in for winter. We did paint the wooden bracket white to match our walls, but otherwise totally perfect and a breeze to put up.
We’re buying another one and foregoing curtains all together :).
