A simple and fun way to design your home is to take care of the plants in the house. Never think that inside designing a home is limited to painting, changing your appliances and accessories or buying more furniture. Plants, whether large or small, tropical or temperate climates, can add charisma to a boring and boring area of the home.
Indoor plants are perfect for decorating ideas, as they can be placed anywhere in your home – be it the bedroom, the living room, the bathroom or the kitchen . The needs of indoor plants are quite basic – light, water and nutrition (good soil and fertilizer composition).
You can buy indoor plants at your local plant, nurseries or simply collect small plants that you have in your own garden. Before buying plants, do research on the plants you would like to have in your home and study the layout of your pieces to make sure you have enough space to accommodate a new plant or plants.
Plants that suit your home include daffodils, hyacinths, orchids, ferns, begonias, bonsai and other indoor plants that do not require a lot of direct sunlight and can thrive in a closed environment. Descriptions of plants suitable for the home can be found on the labels of the plant pots that are sold. If you are certain, ask the supplier of the factory.
Interior decoration with indoor plants includes the selection of the right plant for a particular piece, the choice of the container (pots, vases, jars) to place the plants and arrange the plants depending on the style of a room.
Before choosing a container for your plants, note that the roots need a lot of space to grow. Large plants, such as tropical palms, should be placed in large pots of plants, with enough width and depth to support the roots and plant. What you do not want, is that your exotic palm tree rocks on your Persian carpet!
When choosing an indoor plant for your decorating needs, determine who will be the occupants of a room and what activities will be connected to it. Spiny cactus plants will not be suitable for children's rooms and, as such, should be placed on a table or in a higher position where curious little fingers will not touch them.
Make sure the plants you choose are not toxic because young children can play with leaves and flowers and eat them! Ask your local supplier of plants or your gardener if a plant is dangerous for human consumption or touch and read about the plants you have, including what to do in an emergency (if a poisonous plant was accidentally consumed).
Keep your indoor plants away from pets because some pets, like rabbits and hamsters, act on the leaves and your dog or cat will dig the floor of your pots ! Place your plants in a room where your pets can not reach them or train your dog to not disturb your plant arrangements.
Plants, especially those that bloom, wither easily in hot places like near a stove or radiator. It is best to place your pots near the windows. Good humidity and sunlight are essential for the well-being of your plant.
Take care of your indoor plants by ensuring that they have enough water, sun and nutrients from the soil (fertilizer). Most plants grow well at temperatures from 15 degrees Celsius to 25 degrees Celsius. Try to maintain a constant room temperature and avoid sudden temperature changes where your plants are stored.
Please note that home plants tend to attract insects and insects, especially during the summer months; So do some pest control exercise. If a plant looks like a pest or if an illness has infected it, quarantine this plant and pot it away from healthy plants. A very sick plant may have to be thrown away. You can ask your local gardener and your plant supplier for further information on pest control and pest and disease care plants.
You can plan the decorating arrangements of your indoor plants in many ways. You may want to place a single large plant in your living room, or have a variety of medium sized plants in a corner arrangement near your hallway. Whatever style you want to do depends on the overall appearance of the room you are redesigning.
Large potted plants can be placed directly on the ground while small plants can complement the decor of a dining room. Plants with bright flowers can be placed in a study or bathroom to make things more lively. Large green plants give more oxygen to a room and can suit a room to create a relaxing environment.
Interior decoration with indoor plants should be fun and not a chore! If you are relatively new to the idea, try simple arrangements of small plants and decorate with plants that are easy to take care of such as ferns and cacti. At the end of the day, you want a design that is not only refreshing for the eyes, but also for your health.
