What Houzz contributors are saying:
4. Common geranium(Pelargonium spp.)Familiar favorite. There’s a reason people grow geraniums. These cheery, carefree plants add color to the home throughout the year. They’re also versatile: Some seemed designed for hanging planters; others are perfect for pots; still others are noted for their light scents. Geraniums are happiest in regular potting soil with good drainage. Let a couple of inches of the soil dry out, then water and let drain thoroughly. Feed every two weeks from spring through fall with a half-strength water-soluble fertilizer. Pinch stems to encourage bushiness, and deadhead to keep the plant flowering. Geraniums may be subject to common houseplant pests. Yellow leaves mean either too much or too little water. Repot once the roots start to outgrow the pot.Other flowering plants: Many bromeliads, including Aechmea, Ananas and Billbergia, also like several hours of direct sun, as do amaryllises, florist mums and miniature roses.
10. Coat hooks. Children love coat hooks, and are especially good at hanging up their coats when the hooks are mounted at a height they can reach. When creating a space for coats, don’t forget about creating a space for their backpacks and boots too.
