If you’re looking for a way to liven up your living space, incorporating a little bit of nature is the way to do it. Not everyone has room or time to maintain a garden in their backyard, but there are other ways to create a green space in your home. Check out these affordable and simple ways to bring your house to life.
1. Allow for Fresh Air
One great way to bring nature into your home is by opening your windows when the weather permits. Fresh air helps to clear your lungs, detoxify the air in your home, give you energy, help you relax and much more. Next time a nice day rolls around, open the windows and let the fresh breeze in.
2. Add Pops of Green to Your Color Palette
Maybe your home has a more light, neutral color scheme, or maybe it’s darker with not very much natural light. Either way, adding pops of green to your home décor is a good way to liven up the rooms and make them appear brighter. Not only could this be done by using plants, but also by adding hints of green in throw pillows, picture frames, small decorations, candles and more. A little goes a long way!
3. Create an Indoor Garden
If an outdoor garden isn’t for you, there’s always the indoor option. You can make this as big or small as you’d like, but having an area dedicated to your plants is a fun way to bring your home to life as well as create a new hobby for yourself. Many vegetables can be grown indoors, too, with the right lighting and temperatures.
4. Add Fake Plants Around the House
Busy schedules sometimes make caring for live plants more difficult than it sounds. If that’s the case, you can still bring your home to life with a few fake plants! The best part is that they take zero effort and care but still look like the real deal. You can completely transform the feel of a room simply by adding a few faux plants to the shelves and tables.
5. Take Care of a Few Succulents
Succulents are a great alternative to the big houseplants since they require minimal care but still make a major difference in the look of your home. These can be found at your local greenhouse or even at a grocery store. Paired with some cute pots that match your home décor, this is a great addition to any room of the house.
6. Pick House Plants That Benefit You
Did you know that some house plants offer many more benefits than just a cute addition to your home décor? Some plants, like areca palm or aloe vera, allow for a better night of rest and improve oxygen levels. Do some research before you go plant shopping to see what plant can be beneficial for you.
Now’s a great time to bring a little life to the home you live in. Do yourself a favor and make room for some greenery and nature in your room, kitchen, bathroom or living area. You may be surprised at how much of a positive impact some greenery has on your overall health and well-being!
