Decorate And Brighten Up Your Home: Indoor Plants

by: Sharai Hoekema
decorate and brighten up your home  indoor plants | Newsletter

Many consider their home to be incomplete without at least one plant gracing the living room. Hardly surprising, as plants are an essential accessory that is both green and stylish. They have the potential for cheering up a room with bright colors and wealthy leaves. Or, if done wrong, the potential for disaster, as life just seeps out of them despite all the best efforts, leaving the owner with nothing but a barren brown pile.

Decorate And Brighten Up Your Home: Indoor Plants

Be as it may, indoor plants are always an excellent way to decorate and brighten up your home. Not only are they lovely to look at it (unless they are one of the unlucky ones mentioned above), they also provide real health benefits. So, worth your time and effort. If you are determined to get your indoor greenery right, this is just the article for you.

Indoor Plants As Decoration

One of the main reasons people are investing in plants is the decorative power that they possess. They can liven up a room with bright colors or magnificent structures, providing a warm atmosphere. It does not matter where you place them - even bathrooms and kitchens could be great hosts for any type of greenery.

Potted herbs, for instance, could be significant in your kitchen. Not just decorative and slightly understated, but useful at dinner prep time, too. If you are looking for a plant that commands attention, succulents are your best bet. Their remarkable shapes and styles are a guaranteed eye-catcher. For those who doubt their green fingers, succulents are great too, as are cacti. Just be careful with young children and pets if you opt for the latter.

Speaking of young children and pets. It is always a good idea to check if indoor plants are toxic if ingested. Nontoxic plants include spider plants, trailing jade, Christmas cacti, parlor palms, mini orchids, and wax plants. All of those are great to look at while being pet- and child-friendly.

Indoor Plants As Health Watchers

It is essential to realize that you are not just investing in a decorative piece. Plants provide a wealth of other benefits as well. As they filter the air, your indoor space will benefit from a cleaner and healthier air. As you breathe it in, your body will notice the difference - enhancing your concentration and improving your sleep. This air-cleaning capability might even help with your allergies.

Some great air-cleaners include the snake plant and spider plant. If you are leaning towards an allergy reliever, the English ivy could be your guy. It filters out mold spores, a notorious culprit for triggering allergies.

Besides a healthier body, plants could also account for a healthier mind. Research has shown that the presence of plants boosts your mood. Aromatic plants are particularly great for heightening our sense of comfort and relaxation, like lavender.

Perhaps it is just biology, with our minds unconsciously realizing that plants represent a safe and fertile place to shelter. Either way, having plants in our home and office is a guarantee for a calmer and happier mind. Including them in your meditation space, nursing area, or reading nook is therefore always advisable.

Indoor Plants As Tough Survivors

If you are anything like me, you will find that - despite your best efforts - all indoor green companions wither away—no need to panic. Your busy lifestyle just might not be right for the commitment of a living, breathing thing in your dining room. Then you are best off selecting a nearly durable option that requires much less care.

In no particular order, some of the hardest to kill plants include:

  • Asparagus Fern, a particularly fluffy plant that does well in both light and darkness, as long as you water it every once in a while.
  • Cacti, although technically not a real ‘indoor green,’ they are great to look at and are happy with a few drops of water now and then.
  • Yucca, a plant that thrives in the hot, barren desert. This means it could also survive in your living room. All it needs is sunlight, watering is optional (it would appreciate a pint of water now and then, though).
  • Spider plant, a pet-friendly option that is low-maintenance as they come. Requiring watering once per week, it is best left alone otherwise.
  • Fiddle leaf fig, which is very popular at the moment. It does best in bright light while being watered regularly. No-fuss is its credo.
  • Chinese Monkey Plant, or the ‘pancake plant’ as some call it. It looks cute, wants to stay out of the sun, and receive some water once per week. That is all.

It is always advisable to get a feel for what conditions your house has to offer before making the purchase decision. Are there lots of light in your home? What is the climate in your area? How often can you reasonably get around to watering it? Research some plants on the internet or ask an expert to make sure that you will not find yourself planning another plant funeral way too soon.

Indoor Plants For Each Room

Each room in your house has its function and vibe. This is why there are different plants to consider for each room. These are some helpful pointers for getting it just right.

Your living room would benefit from a tall plant, as it is generally the largest room in the house. Think tropical palm. The bathroom gets a lot of moisture. Some tropical plants would do great in the windowsill, as they get to enjoy both the sunlight and humid conditions.

For the kitchen, herbs are always a safe bet. Basil and oregano, or mint and lemongrass: great to look at, high to put in your meal. In your bedroom, look for plants like the crawling vine or an ivy plant. If you put them high up on a dresser or bookshelf, it provides a lush, romantic effect.

In the study, you would want a smaller, easy to maintain the plant. It might not get as much attention like other plants in the house. Pothos, for instance, is rather low-maintenance and still a great enhancer of your productivity and concentration.

Indoor Plants As Companion

Plants are not just plants. They can liven up the place, provide a healthier and more productive atmosphere, and enhance the unique purpose of each room in the house. Even better, they are not as demanding as pets, while providing some of the same warmth. Plants are the perfect companion—time to figure out which one is right for you.

Before you go!
