The beauty of plants is that they can elevate the look of the interior and exterior of a home with their mere presence, no matter where one chooses to place them. So, it’s an excellent idea to use them strategically to decorate the house with indoor plants and impress guests with the soothing and relaxing vibe. While the easiest way to introduce plants is by placing them in beautiful planters, it’s an idea that is overdone and predictable. Let’s think differently and bring in style and glamour to home décor with some unique ideas.

1. A mini-garden at the top of the partition

Open-plan integrated spaces are quite common in modern homes, and partitioning the space to define each zone is essential for separating the different areas. A unique idea is to use the partition to create an indoor garden on top of it to make the whole space come alive with freshness and greenery. The small indoor garden built on top of the solid wooden partition is a beautiful way to incorporate greenery into the home décor.

2. Decorating dead space with an indoor garden

The area below the stairs is one of the most challenging areas of the house to decorate. Instead of struggling with ideas to utilise the space, create a beautiful garden in the unused space and decorate with indoor plants of your choice.

3. A green curtain for extra privacy

Place a big plant in a planter near the partition in the living room to create a natural green curtain that protects the privacy of the kitchen.

4. Decorative plants on the display unit

Be creative and use the display unit in the living room to arrange sculptural bonsai or plants. Since they will be in a visible portion on the living room, use beautiful planters to enhance the look of the area.

5. A green chandelier hanging from above

When looking for ideas to bring in greenery to the bedroom without taking away floor space, take a cue from here and decorate the empty wall above the headboard with creatively designed shelves decorated with plants in colourful planters.

7. A corner garden in the home

Dedicate a corner of the house for creating an indoor garden that covers the walls and the floor. To give the garden an authentic feel, use artificial turf to cover the floor and cordon off the area with a railing.

8. Climbers and creepers for the home décor

Climbers or creepers dropping down or trailing up the ceiling, walls and partitions can help to create a refreshing ambience in the living cum dining area of the house.

9. Garden in the bathroom

Replicate the feeling of showering in the outdoors by adding artificial turf on the floor near the shower. Enhance the look with live plants in pots, in a corner or on the shelf to add colour and style to the modern bathroom.

10. A floral garden in the indoors

When there is a lack of open space, one can have a dedicated indoor area for creating a beautiful flowering garden near the window to ensure that the plants get enough sunlight. Instead of using the window ledge to create seating, install planter boxes to grow a beautiful garden that becomes the highlight of the home.

It is possible to create a garden, even in a small indoor area. Get ideas and inspiration from these 10 pictures of indoor gardens for small spaces.
