Plants are useful and make excellent décor companions for the indoors. They not only add to the décor but also purify the air inside a home or office. Often, places apart from the living room are ignored when placing plants, let’s explore some of them and correct the folly.
The large houseplants will enjoy the sunlight near the windows. They will provide you shade and privacy too. In fact, you won’t even need to put a curtain on the window. A plant like the English Ivy, can be either hanged or planted in a pot before a window. Interestingly, NASA scientists have found the English Ivy to be an excellent air-filtering plant for the household. Plants like these do not require much maintenance too.
On top of a cabinet or in a corner, a large plant can be accommodated in the bedroom with ease. Don’t you think it will be romantic? A large plant will add joy to the ambience of your bedroom. They would smile back and remind you of the romantic gardens, and perhaps running around trees, if you have seen any Bollywood movies.
We spend a lot of time there, and some people great deal indeed. A bamboo plant or a spider plant will be cool for the bathroom. If you keep the bamboo plant near the window, it will grow in the direction of the sunlight. The spider plant on the other hand grows up to 60 cm and is damn easy to maintain. Corners in the bathroom, near the bathtub or on top of a cabinet, choose a place of your preference to place a large plant.
Rooms with a high ceiling
The corners of a high ceiling room can be best utilized by hanging large plants. English ivy or vine-pothos and the likes are appropriate for the task. Imagine how beautifully they will drape down, like a waterfall for the top of the corner. Exactly below the hanging plant in the corner can be a potted plant.
A door from a cabinet in the bookshelf may be removed and a space for keeping a big plant will be created. You can get a bookshelf custom designed, reserve a space before hand for a plant in between. The top of the bookrack is often left empty, if it is not near the ceiling a large plant can be seated there. If there is space adjacent to the bookrack, a plant can be kept on both sides of the rack.
A reading corner
Now this could be created in any room where you would prefer to read and that has the space required for the sitting. A palm adjacent to the large reading chair would bring peace to the corner. A large plant near you when you sit to read brings serenity to the mind, propelling you to read on and make good use of your time. There could be a large plant placed below a wooden shelf in the corner.
Even if this is the most common place to put the large houseplants on display, it is a good one. Plants will add liveliness to your living room. Large potted plants will enhance the sophistication and grace of your living room. There could be large palms between the single sitter sofas or on the both corners of the couch. A peace lily would smilingly detoxify the air in the room. It grows well even in shade and low temperatures.
No room or corner in the house is bad for placing a plant. If you observe carefully at your home, you will definitely find a place for keeping a large plant.
