Whether looking to add life, visual interest, or just some extra oxygen into your home, plants win with no contest for accomplishing all three. House plants add that extra special touch to a room that is unattainable through the use of any other home decoration. Plants can be added to any room of the house or on any surface and instantly add visual depth to your space. Here's how to add a few to your space.
How do I add plants if I have no counter space?
If table and floor space are limited, consider green walls or wall-mounted pockets. For a more traditional vertical gardening approach, wall brackets and mounting systems are available for potted plants. Ferns and other feathery plant foliage create the stunning effect or illusion of a vegetated and pillowy textured wall.
What kinds of herbs should I grow?
For the home chef, consider growing herbs in the kitchen. Rosemary, cilantro, and basil are all low maintenance herbs that smell great, and will complement any dish that you prepare. An added plus is that it’s very rewarding to cook with your own homegrown cops.
Which plants will help freshen up my home?
Instead of air freshener, place a pot of lavender, sage, or another fragrant flower in the bathroom. You will always have a fresh scent, and the subtle artificial tinge prevalent in all air fresheners will no longer be an issue. Just make sure your plants receive enough sunlight.
How do I decorate with plants?
If you are not quite ready to commit to the idea of a plant that is not a tree, never fear — bonsai is here. Talk about a plant that borders on sculptural, this tradition has been practiced and honed for thousands of years, resulting with a perfectly proportioned miniature tree fit for any tabletop or shelf for display.
While plant forms are inherently beautiful on their own, many unique and beautiful designs have surfaced that utilize living plants to create breathtaking living works of art. Unlike floral arrangements, that can last as little as a few days, many of these plant arrangements can last months with the right care and attention. Whether opting for a succulent wreath or an air plant terrarium, any dining table centerpiece or console table can be instantly transformed with the addition of these carefully designed and arranged mini landscapes. Many plants used for these pieces are very water conscious and the only real requirement is ample sunlight.
