6 Creative Ways To Beautify Your Home With Plants



I don't call them green friends for nothing. Plants are a big part of my life, ever since childhood, I've been surrounded by an abundance of greenery, and they continue to bring happiness and calmness into my life. There is something extraordinary in seeing your green friends flourish.


I'm a firm believer you can't go overboard with houseplants as long as you can walk freely around your home without tripping over them. Coming from someone who doesn't mind being poked in the eye by the palm tree. :) But no worries, there are safe ways you could beautify your home with plants.



6 Creative Ways to Incorporate Plants Into Your Home


1. Green Shelfie

If you have an empty shelf and unsure what to do with it, why not create a dedicated jungle corner? Organise the plants depending on the light and temperature requirements. Or perhaps you have small open shelving. Jazz it up by popping one or two plants on it. I suggest putting one on the top corner and maybe another on the lower opposite corner, and let the foliage trail down. A great choice would be Pothos, English Ivy, Spider Plant, or perhaps a string of hearts.

2. Grow Your Own Fresh Air in Bedroom


For a healthy life, quality sleep is a must. The way you decorate the bedroom can play a vital role in your sleep cycle. Plants are excellent at removing air toxins. I would highly suggest having at least one plant in your bedroom. Some plants are a better hard-worker at night than others. The best bedroom plants are Peace Lily, Areca palm tree, Mother-in-law tongue or Gerbera.



3. Bathroom Jungle



Plants make any bathroom feel lush and spa-like. Not only that, but they are also a great natural dehumidifier. Even if you have a windowless bathroom without natural light, you can still grow your own little jungle. Take a look at best plants for the bathroom without a window here.



4. Biophilic Office Corner



Plants are great at boosting creativity and productivity, making them perfect office decor. You don't have to have an entire room, you could utilise plants to create a cosy Biophilic office corner instead. Check out Biophilic office design idea for small spaces here.



5. Plants as Artwork


Another great way to incorporate plants into your home is to create a live green wall that also acts as the focal point of the room. It's a great way for small homes to take advantage of vertical space. Learn how to grow a vertical garden, in the previous article.



6. Christmas Tree All Year Round



Instead of buying a new Christmas tree every year and contribute deforestation, get your potted tree from a trusted local garden centre and grow it indoors. I got mine from the Hulme Garden Centre in Manchester, and couldn't be happier with the quality.



How Much Sunlight Do Indoor Plants Need?


Take a good look at your light situation and depending on the amount of natural light, allocate plants accordingly. Many plants prefer direct sunlight. They should get direct sun for at least 6 to 8 hours a day. Placing a plant in a window or nearby should get enough natural light.


If this is your first ever to be a plant parent, I suggest starting off with low maintenance plants like Peace Lily, Pothos, String of hearts or Areca palm tree. Read this article to learn how to choose the best plants for your home.
