Your bedroom is a personal haven, and should be a place where you enjoy spending time. Whether you’re wanting to do something different or just looking to add some life to your room, decorating your bedroom with plants is a simple way to enhance your space. Plants are not only beautiful decor, but also a healthy addition to your home. Consider a few creative ideas on how to decorate your bedroom with plants.
1. Line a wall or window
Line up long rectangular planters or small planter pots if you have some empty floor space along a wall. By lining your walls with plants, you can soften the look of your room where there was once empty space with natural greenery.
2. A Plant Corner
Have any awkward, unused corners? Fill them with some lovely, low-maintenance plants! Buy a cluster of plants that vary in size and color. Stash them into a corner to quickly transform that part of your room into a gorgeous space.
To create a more dynamic design, you could get step-stools to create levels. Get creative by putting longer leaves on a higher level so they cascade to the floor, or create an ombre effect by arranging plants by leaf hues and shades.
If you have wide enough windowsills in your bedroom, finding a bright spot for sunlight-loving plants is easy. However, if the sill is a bit too thin, it may be possible to mount larger shelves to give your plants more space. Place a few small plants in petite, decorative planters for an instantly updated look.
If you want to add more natural texture to the walls, pop a few floating shelves around your bedroom, and add a few plants. Place potted greenery with a few accented decor items, or just use the plants as a solo moment.
5. Hook 'em
Keep floor space clear by hanging trailing plants on hooks throughout your bedroom. Unused key and coat hooks are a great way to hang small, delicate planters and tiny little succulents. If you have multiple large plants, use strong hooks to hang them to the ceiling to avoid taking up floor space. Use decorative cords to hold the planter to add extra interest and details.
6. Bedside table accent
Placing plants on a side table is one of the easiest ways to start decorating a bedroom with plants. Simply match a planter to your decor and pick out your favorite plant for an instant bedroom refresh.
7. Accent with a wall of greenery
If you have the wall space, make a statement by growing your own plant wall. Use a planter with a trellis inside to support vining plants, and place it next to a blank wall to let your plants take center stage.
However, if you’re not looking to maintain a live plant, fake plants or a moss wall can also be substituted.
8. Use Your Headboard
Place a few select plants on your headboard if it’s wide enough. Put a large plant in the middle and accent with other decorative items, or use a series of smaller plants to create a more uniform look. Play with the heights of smaller plants and planters for extra interest. Or, just let a solo plant be an accent to other headboard decor.
Decorating with plants can be extremely fulfilling. Though you may only be looking for a few creative ideas on how to decorate a bedroom with plants, be sure to take note of any maintenance and sunlight needs for your new greenery. Place plants where they’ll thrive best, and enjoy having new life in your bedroom.
