Of course, there's the classic potted plant. Well, if you are going to put in a plant inside your home, it really will be potted, there's no doubt about that. However, you don't have to go for the basic brown clay pots. You can opt for something more unique or more aesthetically-pleasing. If your room subscribes to a certain interior design style, for instance, your plant doesn't have to be the sore thumb in there. The pot can conform to the general style of the room to make everything look balanced and complete.
A common complaint people have when it comes to plants in a room is they take up space. Especially if the plant in question is quite big. And occasionally, they do take up quite a lot of legroom in a room. Legroom that could have been used to make the whole room feel and seem bigger. So what are you to then? Hang them! Get your little plants and hang them wherever you please. Though it's better not to hang them above an area where people will likely sit around and chill. You wouldn't want an awful accident to happen, would you?
Another great way to incorporate plants in your room without using too much space is setting them in a corner. As beautiful as your plant is, it doesn't have to be smack dab in the center of the room. Nor do you have to place it in the middle of an open path. Plants help accent the room nicely when they're put in a corner, preferrable one where they can get lots of sunlight. And this is more for your bigger flora. The smaller ones, you can hang, the bigger ones? Put them in a corner for that nice fresh botanical accent.
You'll likely have a favorite plant that you'd want to put in all of the rooms of your place. Stop! No matter what plant that met be, it won't look that good if that's the only type of flora you have in your home. Your place will look more like a shop for the said plant, not a home with a fresh style. To avoid this, mix it up a little. For your little plants, for instance, instead of putting together the same sort of succulents, go for a varied look with different types of them set side-by-side.
Now, green might be a beautiful color but it's not the only colored plant out there. Part of freshening up your room with plants is to make sure it looks as good as it feels. And when it comes to aesthetics, there's nothing better than your classic florals. If a green leafy plant is not enough to enrich the vibe of a room, for colorful flowers. Just make sure the hues correspond well with the overall scheme of the interior. For example, if your room is painted in pastel colors, some nice yellow sunflowers will brighten that place up in no time!
Plants don't have to be overwhelming. Style-wise, some plants would look better than others because there's only one of them. Think of one calla lily giving light to your rustic-themed home office. Sure, it's only practically one flower, but doesn't it make all the difference? Doesn't the flower soften the lookup? Doesn't it give off a more sophisticated vibe? That's the magic of a solo plant in the room. It gives off an accent so simple, you don't realize its impact until you see the bigger picture of the room. And at times, this is just what the room needed!
Let's go back to pots! Haven't decided yet what kind you want to put your plant in? Why not try a glass pot? Or a glass vase for that elegant look? it may not seem all that much at first, but once you set your glass-potted plant in your room, you'll see the difference. The feel is a lot more sophisticated, very modern, yet it's not overbearing either. Somehow, it might even make your plant look smaller, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It simply completes the look with little to no fuss at all. It's just right.
Does your room look and feel complete? If it doesn't, try including a plant or two inside it. You might not realize it yet, but such botanical bliss can make all the difference, no matter how big or small your plant may be!
