Plant Décor Ideas for your Home

Posted on 07/21

Who says nature has to stay outside? Bring plants into your home and adore the indoor greenery for a fresher, brighter and happier home. This doesn’t mean you have to put an ordinary plant in a pot and call it a day - dare to be different with these great and atypical décor ideas!

Which Type of Plant Should I Choose?

When choosing a plant accessory for your home, you want to ensure that the one you choose is serving a positive purpose. Having a mini garden grow in your room improves air quality which eliminates toxins. However, picking plants from your yard may not be the best sanitary decision. Check out our top plant picks for inside the house:

  1. Aloe Vera
    Aloe Vera plants provide many health benefits for the human body. The plant can be an at home remedy for burns, cold sores and dry skin.

  1. Bamboo
    Bamboo adds a tropical touch to your home, while also exuding a chic look. Some types of bamboo are also thought to bring good luck.
  2. Lemon Balm
    Lemon balm plants have a citrus scent, which reduces anxiety and calms digestion. This plant is known for its health remedies and is commonly used as flavouring within tea.
  3. Cactus Plants
    Cactus plants bring an exotic look to your home and are thought to send protective energy. This plant may not be the norm, but it is definitely a stunning addition.

How to Decorate

Believe it or not, there are plenty of ways to accessorize these plants for a more aesthetically pleasing look. By adding small decorative rocks to empty glass jars and bottles, you can transform an ordinary object into an extravagant accent piece. For a more unique idea, fill an empty fish bowl with water and decorative rocks and watch the plant grow. If you like a classic look, a vase is the perfect plant holder.

Where to Put My New Plant

You want to ensure you are placing your plants so that they are visible and can be easily cared for. Ideally, the front door is a good spot because as soon as you walk in you can smell the freshness in your home. In the kitchen, you can make the plant a beautiful centrepiece on the dining table. The bathroom is a great area as well because the humidity from the shower helps hydrate the plant.
