Indoor plants can make your house look so beautiful. I always thought of having indoor plants in my house for a long time, from hanging plants to water plants.
So, when COVID-19 led to the lockdown, I decided to make use of the time. If you are also working from home, this is the right time to decorate your house with indoor plants. You can create a mini garden with your children to create a natural environment.
If you don’t have an idea of plants to grow, check out my recent article on the Ideal water plants you can use to decorate your house. Ordinarily, having indoor plants makes a home cozy, occupies empty spots in the house, and relieves stress.
1) Place Indoor Plants on a Bench or Cart
The first thing you can do is place your indoor plant on a cart or bench. Place it on a corner or near the wall, then place the plants on it. Make sure the color of the cart fits with your decor. White or brown carts fit most themes.
An amazing aspect of the cart option is placing hanging plants like swiss cheese plants, water plants like spider plants, and pot plants like cacti on the same surface. A little touch of each type of plant will make your home look outstanding.
Additionally, try to use a wide variety of pot types and shapes to make the cart décor more appealing. You can use geometric pots, DIY pots, and eclectic pots to place your plants.
Furthermore, create a watering roster for your kids so everyone waters the plants on their designated day.
2) Place Hanging Plants on Shelves
3) Create a Plant Corner
Are there any spots in your home that are unfilled? Why not create a plant corner where you can place a wide variety of plants. You can add different types of plants and create a plant sanctuary.
You won’t be restricted and you can add large indoor plants like a fiddle leaf fig tree and combine them with smaller ones. Place the large pots on the floor, water plants on the table, and hanging plants on the wall.
Why not make your own nature park in your home? This will help bring a bit of the outside world into your home.
4) Place Large Plants Near Your Sofa
Why not place your fiddle leaf fig tree tropical plant next to the couch? It will fit right in! Just get your best large plant and place it near your best chair! This will help spice up your living room. Moreover, you can place the large plants near a piano to spice up the environment.
In fact, you can place a peace lily or roses on your dining table or reading table. This is a great way to feel relaxed while reading. It will also make the room look more natural. The living room will look like a safe haven for the whole family.
5) Place Indoor Plants on the Floor
Additionally, remember to fill all the empty spots with indoor plants. Trust me, this will create an appealing interior décor.
If you have a large house, walk around and look for the places where you can put these floor plants. You can’t miss an ideal place for that. Make your house as natural as possible.
6) Spice up Your Living Room With Cut Blooms
How about decorating your room with cut blooms? They can be much easier to maintain than growing plants. Consequently, you will need to maintain them by regularly changing the jar water.
They introduce a kind of vibrancy and fragrance in your house. It is also a cheap option. However, the disadvantage of cut blooms is that they have a short lifespan as compared to living plants. Gradually, you can decide to start your rose garden and use your flower blooms.
7) Decorate Your Kitchen With Herbs
Have you ever thought of planting herbs indoors? They will help spice up your kitchen area. Not only that, but you can incorporate salad leaves. So, whenever you serve food, you will remember your starter greens.
For this, you can use your kitchen shelves to place the plants. Remember to choose a hanging herb that you will love. For example, rosemary, sage, fern leaf dill, and more!
8) Place Non-Toxic Plants in Your Children’s Rooms
Brighten your child’s room by placing an indoor plant in it. However, remember to choose one that will complement the room. You can choose a nontoxic plant like the rattlesnake plant, African violet, parlor palm, or spider plant.
Remember to choose a plant type that doesn’t require too much care if your child forgets to maintain it. They also need to be pet-friendly. You can try hanging trailing plants from the ceiling or on a shelf near the bed. Sleeping under plants makes you feel like you are on vacation!
Decorating Your Space With Indoor Plants
Use the extra time while working at home to decorate your house with indoor plants. Ultimately, you can spice up your home by using large plants like the snake plant. You can spice up your kitchen with herbs, put aloe vera on a bookshelf, and kid-friendly plants in the bedrooms!
You can use any of these options to decorate your house. Plants are known to be stress-relief agents. Remember to include your whole family in the planting exercise to help you bond better!
