Plants are one of the easiest ways to bring fresh life into a space. Not only are they beautiful and affordable, but they also bring a bit of nature into your home. With the right touch, you can bring depth, color, and texture into your space with plants. Here are some ways you can decorate with plants.
Place plants on a bar cart
Transform a drab bar cart with plants. Bar carts are very popular right now thanks to their versatility and general style. Small plants are a great accent piece without taking up too much space from the other items. Or you can display your favorite plants in one area. Not only will bar carts keep your plants off the ground, but it’ll also be easy to move them around to keep your plants in or out of direct sunlight.
Create a plant corner
If you have an area in your home that you’re not quite sure what to do, try placing a variety of plants in that spot. Plants are a great way to fill unused space. In fact, grouping different types of plants together creates unique layers and textures that are pleasing to the eyes and calming.
Flowers are the usual go-to for centerpieces, but have you considered plants? Using plants as centerpieces save you the weekly trip to the store for fresh blooms. Plus, you don’t have to fuss over them to create the perfect arrangement. The centerpiece can be as simple as a single plant on your table or counter, or more elaborate with a group of plants.
Design wall décor
Tired of boring white walls but don’t want to paint? With a few wall-mounted planters you can enhance a blank surface with a living wall. Wall planters are an efficient way to display your plant collection without taking up crucial floor space. From succulents to cut flowers, there are endless ways to create eye-catching focal points. Here are some additional ways to hang plants without drilling holes into your walls.
Have fun with your pots
Whether your style ranges from classic to quirky, express yourself through pots and planters. Pots are a great way to add color, texture, and interest to a space. They’re also fairly inexpensive so it’s easy to switch them up as the mood strikes. You can coordinate with different styles in the same color or mix and match pots with different shapes and colors. Your options for plant pots are practically endless.
