Transform your home and add some life to a dull looking space with just a few strategically placed household plants. It’s a simple trick most interior designers use to dress up a room.

These leafy bundles of joy are not only pleasing to the eye, they can increase mood and productivity, enhance concentration, reduce stress and fatigue, as well as purify the air you breathe. Here’s how you can incorporate them into your home.

On Windowsills, Countertops and Tables

Succulents and house plants like Peace Lilies look wonderful as ornamental decorations placed in small pots. They require little space and minimal care while looking lovely on counter tops, as window display and as a centerpiece.

Hanging Air Plants

If you’re short on space but still want to add some greenery a smart way is to utilise the height space in your home. Air plants such as spider plants are great for this purpose and will dress up any boring corner in the home. Invest in a hanging planter, or make your own with natural items such as coconut husks to instantly brighten up your interior.

Dress up the Corners and Walls

If you prefer your house plants to have a more dominant presence, place larger potted species like the Caribbean Tree Cactus, Dracaena, Ficus, or Bamboo Palms in corners or along the walls around a room. They not only add a cosy charm, they can instantly uplift the mood of your home too.

Having plants in your home could help purify the indoor air quality too but nothing works better than an air purifier.

An air purifier has the ability to monitor pollution levels and anticipates high pollution hours as this allows the air purifier to conserve energy yet control the spread of any unwanted pollutant. Plus, unlike just household plants, a good air purifier with extra built-ins such as 3D air circulation and a mega catcher can help suck up dust and dirt to help keep your home extra squeaky clean.

With the combined effort of some greenery and a good air purification system, you’ll never have to worry about taking in a deep breath in your home again!
