Have you ever wanted to improve the way your indoor space looks without having to completely change your style and décor? When you bring indoor plants into the mix, you’ll be able to add a fresh look to any room that’s sure to brighten up the space in no time. But decorating with indoor plants isn’t as simple as just placing a potted plant in a corner and leaving it at that. Here are a few tips that can help you get started on the road to perfect plant use in your home in no time.
Play with Height
Different plants are available in different sizes, shapes, and heights, and it’s always a good idea to think about your vertical space as well as your horizontal areas. All plants don’t have to be at eye level to you, and it can be a lot of fun to mix and match the heights of the plants you use in your home. Hang some from the ceiling, position some on higher shelves, and don’t forget about the lower areas in your home as well—unless you have pets who may try to eat your plants!
Use Unique Pots and Containers
The vibrant green of indoor plants can be a great way to add a lot of color and style to any room, but don’t forget to think about unique pots and fun containers for your leafy friends, too. These can be just about anything that will hold your plants and drain water, from drilled mason jars to old teacups and dishes to custom-designed pottery and everything in between. Love a certain color in your interior décor? Be sure to look for pots and containers that fall into that color perfectly!
Use Corners—But Not Just Corners
It’s an old practice to place a potted plant or an indoor tree in a pot in the corner of a room. While this is a little bit outdated, you don’t need to neglect the corners of your rooms altogether. Consider adding something a little more unique to this space, and think about plants that may fan out and take up more room visually in the corner as well. Of course, you don’t have to fill every corner with a plant, and every plant you use does not have to be stuck in the corner. Don’t be afraid to play with this a little.
Don’t Forget Herbs
Last but not least, consider planting herbs as part of your indoor greenery. Herbs look nice on a shelf or even mounted in planters on the wall, and since they’re fairly low-maintenance, you don’t have to worry a lot about them as long as you keep up with regular watering. Plus, they can taste great in your cooking, too, so you’ll be getting the best of both worlds out of this fun decoration idea!
