7 Ways To Bring Some Greenery Into Your Indoor Spaces

Redoing your interior is a great way to refresh your home and make it feel new again. However, it can be difficult to know where to start. Here are seven ways to bring some greenery into your indoor spaces and get the ball rolling.

  1. Get a few potted plants.
  2. Potted plants are an easy and affordable way to add some green to your home. You can find them at most home improvement stores or online. Just make sure to pick ones that are appropriate for the amount of light in your space.
  3. For example, if you have a lot of natural light, you could get a fiddle leaf fig or snake plant. If you have low light, try a philodendron or spider plant. On the other hand, if you have medium light, any of the following would work well: rubber plant, dracaena, or peace lily.
  4. Keep in mind that some plants are more toxic than others, so if you have pets or small children, be sure to do your research before bringing any new plants into your home.
  1. Consider buying a trellis.
  2. Trellises are fantastic for adding vertical interest to a space. You can use them indoors or outdoors. If you want to use it indoors, make sure it’s made of a material that won’t rust, like aluminum or plastic.
  3. You can put a trellis in a corner of a room or near a window. Then, you can add plants that climb, like ivy or grape vines. Simply take a look at a couple of pictures online for inspiration. This is a great way to add some greenery without taking up a lot of floor space.
  4. Plus, it’s a relatively inexpensive project that you can do yourself in an afternoon.
  1. Get a hanging plant.
  2. Hanging plants are another great way to add greenery without taking up too much space. They also add visual interest and can help purify the air in your home.
  3. Some good options for hanging plants include spider plants, philodendrons, and pothos vines. Again, just make sure to do your research before purchasing any plants, so you know which ones are toxic and which ones aren’t.
  4. When it comes to hanging plants, there are a few different options. You can buy a plant that already comes in a pot with a hanger, or you can get a pot and hanger separately and put the plant in yourself.
  5. You could also get creative and use something else as a planter, like an old basket or even a colander. Just make sure whatever you use has drainage holes so the plant doesn’t get overwatered.
  1. Make a terrarium.
  2. Terrariums are a fun and easy way to add some greenery to your home. They’re also low maintenance, which is great if you don’t have a lot of time to take care of plants.
  3. There are two main types of terrariums: open and closed. Closed terrariums are better for plants that require high humidity, like ferns. Open terrariums are better for plants that need less humidity, like succulents.
  4. You can find terrarium kits online or at your local garden center. Or, you can DIY it and use an old fish tank or Mason jar. Just make sure whatever container you use is clean and has no sharp edges.
  1. Add some green to your walls.
  2. One of the latest trends in home décor is adding plants to your walls. This can be done with living walls, which are basically just vertical gardens. Or, you can use wall planters.
  3. Wall planters come in all different shapes and sizes. You can find them made out of metal, ceramic, wood, or even plastic. They’re a great way to add a pop of color or texture to your walls.
  4. Plus, they’re perfect for small spaces because they don’t take up any floor space. And, if you get tired of them, you can simply take them down and put them somewhere else.
  1. Get a group of small plants.
  2. If you don’t have a lot of space, or if you’re just not ready to commit to a large plant, consider getting a group of small plants instead. This is a great way to add some greenery to your home without going overboard.
  3. You can find small plants at most garden centers or online. Some good options include succulents, cacti, herbs, and air plants. You can also get creative and group together different types of plants that have similar watering needs.
  1. Repurpose an old piece of furniture.
  2. If you have an old dresser or end table that you’re not using, consider repurposing it into a plant stand. This is a great way to add some greenery to your home without spending any money.
  3. Simply remove the drawers from the piece of furniture and add some plants. You can put them in pots or directly into the holes where the drawers used to be. Just make sure the plants you choose are appropriate for the amount of light the stand will get.
