Indoor plants not only improve air quality, they also offer a wide range of decorating options. With so many different types of houseplants available, the possibilities are endless. Of course, endless possibilities can also be overwhelming. It can be helpful to learn a few basic concepts on how to use plants to decorate. Once you understand the basics, you can use the plants you want to fill in the details.
1. Filling in Awkward Places
It is pretty common to find yourself with one or more awkward spaces in your home or apartment – spaces that nothing quite seems to fit. Indoor plants give you a way to fill in those spaces and make them look great. Try using a few plants with differing heights, and maybe a few other eye-catching design elements, to fill in the space.
Tables often look better with centerpieces. While you can certainly use a big coffee table book or some other object, you could also use one or more houseplants to spruce things up. A mid-sized plant is an option, as are clusters of smaller plants grouped together.
3. Room Divider
A shelf with indoor plants loosely spaced can make a great room divider. By adding more plants, you can make the divider more difficult to see through. Or, you can make more space to create a screen that offers glimpses of what lies beyond.
4. Add Movement to the Room
Plants that produce long runners can be used to add movement across a room, or connect one room to another. Depending on the length and flexibility of the plant, you can create numerous designs depending on your preference.
5. Adding Color and Life
Plants automatically add a splash of color to any room they are placed in. In a fully white room, even green stands out nicely. If your room is more varied, you can pick plants that have colors that enhance your space in whatever way you like.
