Houseplants are incredibly popular as they offer a cheap, fashionable, and easy way to bring a touch of nature into the home. Especially for those living in urban areas, house plants offer some much-needed greenery that can bring a room to life. If you’re unsure how to style houseplants throughout your home, you’re in the right place!
We spend a lot of time in the bathroom, so transforming it into a relaxing space will help to bring calmness to the beginning and end of your day. Your options for the bathroom will depend on space, so if you don’t have much floor space, opt for hanging ivy from the window sill. It will make a beautiful addition as its multicolored heart-shaped leaves will make a statement for a small plant. If you have slightly more room, large snake plants are great for the bathroom as they thrive in humid environments.
If there’s any area in the house that you can get away with having a large houseplant, it’s in the kitchen. The perfect statement choice for the kitchen would be a large areca palm plant in a metallic pot. You’d be surprised at what a difference you’ll notice once some greenery is introduced into the room. If you’re wanting something smaller for the worktop, a succulent bowl is a perfect solution, especially if you’re looking for a low maintenance house plant!
One of the biggest spaces in most homes would be their living room. Away from the hustle and bustle of the kitchen, living rooms should bring serenity and calmness to your life. Integrating house plants into the room is a fantastic way to do that. If you have a bay window, having a large potted plant, perhaps a birds nest fern, is a great way to bring life into the room in a soft and subtle way. Or, go for something smaller like a maidenhair fern and style it on top of your luxury coffee table to find a healthy balance between decadence and nature.
When it comes to the bedroom, you want a plant that will help you to unwind and relax at the end of the day. Whilst this might be a bit unconventional, lavender plants can live indoors when they’re cared for properly. They need plenty of direct sunlight and don’t like to be overwatered. Lavender is known for its ability to help people sleep better, so there’s really no better option when it comes to a houseplant for your bedroom. Choose a simple pot and try introducing shades of lavender around the rest of the room to create a cohesive and beautiful look.
If there’s ever an excuse to create an indoor jungle, it’s in the conservatory. Set up a reading nook with a comfy chair, woven blanket and reading light and then create a green paradise around you. You will never find a room with cleaner air and your plants will get plenty of light so are likely to thrive. Be careful not to introduce plants that like to be in a room consistent in temperature, as your conservatory is likely to fluctuate between hot and cold throughout the seasons.
