Flowers as part of the interior - back to the nature

If you're currently in the process of furnishing your new apartment or feel that your rooms lack something, and you're contemplating how to liven up the spaces, houseplants might be the perfect choice! In this blog, we'll delve into how incorporating greenery can elevate your interior design.

As observed in recent years across trendy restaurants, boutiques, offices, and homes, integrating plants into interior design is gaining significant popularity. Plants have transcended being just a trend; they enhance the appeal and vibrancy of spaces and also contribute to our overall well-being. Research indicates that houseplants not only diminish air pollution and noise but also promote well-being and reduce stress levels.

The health benefits of plants

Plants offer a range of benefits, primarily aiding in anxiety and stress reduction. Their presence can lead to lower blood pressure, promoting a sense of calm and balance.

Having indoor plants in our bedrooms can contribute to improved sleep by releasing oxygen during the night. Additionally, plants act as natural air filters, enhancing humidity levels and reducing dust, ultimately facilitating easier breathing and combating allergies or even colds.

The use of plants in interior design

We touched on the health benefits of houseplants, but what about their design advantages? Historically, plants were seen as a luxury accessible only to the wealthy for centuries. However, nowadays, they are relatively affordable and rank among the most effective design tools to enhance interior spaces. Yet, they are frequently underestimated, and their absence can create a cold or uncomfortable ambiance in certain areas.

Why are they crucial in home decor? Plants excel at introducing vibrant colors, organic shapes, and unique textures into the environment. They act as unifying elements, helping to accentuate a room's strengths or, conversely, disguise its flaws or divide it into distinct zones. They bring balance to rooms and aid in establishing a distinctive ambiance!

Now that we understand the importance of plants in interior design and why they're already considered in architectural plans, let's discuss where they should be placed. The concise answer is to have at least one plant or flower in every room. However, there are fundamental areas where utilizing plants is always a good idea: vacant corners, plain white walls, shelves, versatile tables, or even bathrooms.

Analyze your space

First and foremost, it's essential to carefully assess and analyze the space you're working with to grasp the room's strengths and weaknesses. Evaluate which areas would benefit from better lighting, refinement, or enhancement. Viewing the space from various angles will aid in determining the best spots to showcase your creativity.

Furthermore, at this stage, you should begin considering the types of houseplants you prefer and which would complement the space you're designing. It's important to remember that each plant has specific lighting needs, so you should plan their placement accordingly. However, if you're new to this and feeling a bit overwhelmed, there's no need to fret. Florists and gardening studios are more than happy to provide guidance and present you with various options. In the end, it will all start to feel quite manageable.

Large vs. small plants, climbing, standing or their various combinations

Large plants in a room make a striking impression and capture our attention. They work well in minimalist interiors, where we aim to highlight specific design elements. They're also great for occupying empty corners or adding substance to a room. However, exercise caution to prevent overcrowding.

On the other hand, small plants should not be underestimated, as they bring beauty to interiors and can add variety to any shelf. Due to their adaptability and low maintenance requirements, they are perfect for any space in the house, ranging from a dimly lit bookcase to a humid bathroom. You can find tips on combating high-humidity areas, which can potentially lead to mold on the walls, in our article.
