A simple way to add life to your home’s décor is by adding plants. You can use them as the center of attention or as an accent piece off to the side on a table, or near an end table, pedestal, window, etc, to add some vibrance to the room you are decorating.
Decorating with plants however, does take some care so you must make sure you will have enough time to care for your plants. Some plants need trimming, frequent watering, position changes, etc, so before you go out and buy make sure you will have the time to care for them.
Another tip before buying your plants, decide where you will want to place them. This is important because indoor plants need a specific environment for survival and for optimal growth. Determine whether your plant prefers high humidity, or a drier climate. Will your plant need lots of sunlight, or does it survive better in darker areas? These factors will help you determine the best plant for your home.
The next thing you need to consider (once you have picked out your plant) is the type of container you will store your plant in. Make sure the container is a good solid structure, having a drain-hole, so in case you over water, the overflow will have a way to escape so your plant does not die. Another thing to look for is to make sure your container will compliment your plants look; that is the whole point of adding decor to your home. Most garden centers have many options to choose from, and there are many experts to consult.
The last thing you will want to consider is the size of your plant. By determining in your home where you will be placing the plant, you will be able to decide what size you want. Plants come in all sizes and shapes, so your options are endless. Just remember don’t overdo it, you don’t want your home to look like a jungle.
