Indoor plants and being a ‘plant parent’ have taken millennial households by storm. Not only are they great for purifying the air, but indoor plants can bring a pop of color and vitality to any interior space. Large indoor plants, in particular, are statement pieces that transform ordinary rooms into an oasis of calm and style.

If you’re looking to integrate these natural wonders into your home decor, here are five ways to do it right.

Use plants as natural dividers.

Large indoor plants like the Fiddle-leaf Fig or Monstera Deliciosa can be strategically placed as room dividers. If you have an open-plan space, this is the perfect way to designate areas in your home without building walls or using screens.

Remember positioning matters.

Large indoor plants command attention. Position them in places where they can be celebrated. Think of spaces that can benefit height, such as in corners, beside sofas, or by large windows.

Mix and match.

Sure, large indoor plants make a statement, but smaller plants can beautifully complement them. Place various sizes together to create a layered, lush look. This ensures that each plant gets its moment of shine.

Embrace pots and planters.

The pots and planters that you choose are just as important as the plants. Opt for decorative plants that align with your design style. Don’t shy away from mixing textures. A ceramic planter paired with a woven one can add depth and interest to your space.

Remember maintenance is key.

Large indoor plants can mean large responsibilities. Consider the maintenance needed for each plant you bring into your home. Some plants may need regular pruning to maintain their shape, while others may require a specific watering schedule. Invest in a good watering can and mister to ensure your leafy giants remain in tip-top shape.
