In fact, you can take advantage of other benefits of having plants indoors, from purifying the air, improving humidity levels and positively impacting your mental health. If you can't think of how you can decorate with plants, you can follow these ideas and uses of plants in interior decorating.

Original uses of plants

- Green ceilings

Suspending hanging plants from pots and other structures on the ceiling is a wonderful way to add movement and significantly improve the humidity levels in your home. This type of decoration is very popular in bathrooms where there is a lot of humidity and can be used to grow radiant and beautiful Boston ferns. It will also look like a relaxing and comfortable spa.

- Room dividers

Open concept flats and loft flats are the most popular architectural trends of the last few seasons. Not only do they allow you to use the space in a more organic and versatile way, but they also improve natural lighting conditions and look much more modern. The point is that it's important to learn how to define spaces visually, without using light-robbing screens. Vegetable dividers are the answer.

You can make them by suspending plants from the ceiling at different heights, placing tall plants on the floor or using structures designed for this purpose. There are some that are made with threads in a frame, on which the chosen plants will climb. There are plant dividers with spaces for pots, while others define the zones using rugs, plants and tables. For example, you can use the Inner Peace set to make a reading and meditation corner.

- Aromatic plants indoors

In the kitchen you can create your own mini-garden with aromatic plants and everyday spices. Mint, basil, oregano, rosemary, parsley and much more are some of the plants you can have in the kitchen. They not only act as a decorative element, but also have a practical function. You can have them in long planters or hung in small pots on a wall.

- Fill spaces

There's bound to be a corner or wall that you feel is missing something, empty or poor. Maybe your new bookcase or bookshelf has a lot of empty spaces that make the place look sad. The answer is simple: you need plants. These green companions are perfect for adding texture and colour, for creating focal points in dull rooms and for playing with scale and heights.

If you don't have a green thumb, don't worry, there are species that are almost immortal. You can place a shelf with cacti and succulents or put a pot on the floor with a specimen of Sansevieria, whose tall, elongated leaves will give dimension and colour to any corner. want something more dramatic and visually powerful? A fiddle leaf fig or a massive Adam's rib will be happy to stretch their leaves the length and breadth of your spaces.

- Centrepieces

On the dining table or in the kitchen picnic area you can create small compositions with plants that will act as centrepieces. If it is long and rectangular, you can place 2 or 3 low plants to balance visually, but if the table is round, one low and full plant will be enough. It will look perfect, elegant and very natural.

- Natural barriers on windows

Maybe you have a window overlooking the street or a neighbouring flat and you don't want to install curtains because they would steal the light. The solution is simple: create a plant arrangement that borders the window or hangs over the window. For low planters, you can use the snake plant, for example, or drooping Boston ferns. This will give you some privacy without depriving you of natural light.

Plants are versatile decorative tools, always changing, growing and evolving; so you can count on never getting bored of having them and taking care of them, as they will make your decorative plan dynamic and changing.
