How To Aesthetically Brighten Your Home With Plants

To create your perfect green haven and to brighten your home with plants, it’s worthwhile spending a little bit of time researching the plants that are best suited for each room and what kind of environment.

Whether you have a green thumb or not, you’re probably privy to the many benefits of live plants. They can help purify the air, reduce stress, and even boost your productivity. And let’s not overlook their ability to create visual interest in your home. That said, finding the right plant can be quite challenging, as there are countless easy-to-care-for varieties that can breathe life into your space.

If you want to change the interior decor of your home to make it more bright and fresh-looking, using plants and flowers is the way to go. Incorporating nature inside your home is in vogue and is one of the best ways to give your home a fresh look without spending too much on renovation. Allow us to dive right in.

Plan ahead and coordinate color scheme

Every house has its color scheme and aesthetic which can either lean towards being warm-toned or cool-toned. When choosing the types of flowers and plants you’re going to have inside your home, you would have to choose colors that complement the overall aesthetic of the house.

For example, if your walls happen to be a shade of peach, it would lean towards the warmer side and the flowers you pick will have to belong to warm tints as well. Cream, orange, red, and pink are some shades that will look lovely in such a case.

Not to panic! but beware of too much sun

Most indoor plants don’t like the direct midday sun, so please be wary of this when placing plants in your home. There are very obvious warning signs to look out for, such as leaf burn, spotting, or sudden leaf-fall. 

Most plants can be easily rescued, so don’t panic! Often it is a case of not watering them too much or letting the soil dry out a bit if it is feeling too soggy. Check if your plant is sitting by a cold draft as this can cause the leaves to curl and eventually drop off. Organic fertilizers are a great way to revive your plants.

Start with an easy plant such as a cactus or succulent

Many people think succulents and cacti are the same things, as most cacti are classed as succulents. However, although the majority of cacti are also succulents, there are many other succulent plants that are not cacti. The main difference is that cacti always have bumps called areoles from which hair or spikes grow, whereas other kinds of succulents do not.

Cactus – Most cacti only need to be watered about once a week, which is perfect if you tend to be forgetful. And while you can find many floor options, there is a slew of tabletop plants that are ideal for small spaces.

Succulents – They’re low maintenance, easy to propagate, and suited to most homes. They are best placed on the windowsill where they can get the most sunlight. Identifying a succulent is pretty straightforward, as they have thick, fleshy leaves or stems. Many types are a rosette shape and have tightly packed leaves, which help to conserve water in their natural habitat.

Aim the right location

You may own the loveliest houseplants, but if you fail to place them in the right location, you may miss out on the aesthetic beauty plants can bring into a home. 

Typically, it’s a good idea to choose areas that receive sunlight and air for the permanent location of house plants, especially if their care guides state that they require a certain amount of sunlight every day.

If your home receives very little sunlight, it’s better to choose plants that can thrive with less light. Whether you choose to place your plants where there is a lot of sunlight or in the shadier portions of the house, make sure you choose places that are visible to the eye as soon as you enter the room.

Consider dangling your plants

Apart from placing flowers and plants in different areas of the house such as on the floor, on tables, and near window sills, you can take creativity to the next level by hanging your plants from hooks on the ceiling. This way, the entire room will look more put together and will also give the room a freshness that comes with innovative thinking.

Key takeaway

Plants are an easy and gorgeous way to style up your living space. Adorn your windowsills with succulents, drape vibrant macramé hangers from curtain rails, or try something big and bold like the gorgeous fiddle leaf fig. You can also have fun with the pots, and display your plants in beautiful ceramic and copper containers.
