Plants to improve your apartment

When you live in an apartment, decorating might feel like a tall order. While you want to make your living space feel like home, you don’t want to overdo it. The last thing anyone wants is to make their apartment feel smaller than it is. The good news is that potted plants are extremely versatile and they make any room look better. That said, it’s important to make sure that you choose the right plants for each room.

If you have a relatively small apartment, you don’t want to overcrowd the space with large plants. Make sure that you choose plants that are suitable in terms of size as well as their preferences. Some plants enjoy shade while others prefer sunny surroundings. Make sure that you research these care preferences before choosing plants for your home.

Another good tip to remember is that less is more. Rather than cluttering your window sill or table with several potted plants, choose just one to enhance the décor in the room. You can use more than plant in a room, provided they don’t make the room seem stuffy or small.

Take the time to find out more about how large your plants are expected to grow. If they are likely to grow several metres in height, they might not suit your home. For particularly small apartments, cacti and succulents are often popular since they are easy to grow and they don’t grow particularly large or fast.

If your space is quite limited, you can invest in hanging plants or even decorate your balcony or terrace. Don’t limit yourself to decorating your living room alone. There are plenty of other areas, including your bathroom, where potted plants can add just the right amount of colour and beauty.
