Clever ways to add pockets of green to your home

With temperatures soaring, give your home a refreshing makeover with some greenery. Plants add an aesthetic appeal to your space, improve the air quality, create a cooler atmosphere and improve overall well-being. By choosing the right plants and implementing the proper care, you can enjoy the benefits all year round. Here are seven creative ways to add pockets of green to your home for a cooler summer.

1. Spruce Up Your Balcony

Balcony is the perfect place to add a green space in your home. Create a small garden on your balcony with potted plants, flower beds and small trees. A green curtain made using trellis and climbers such as ivy or spider plants works as a privacy screen and brings in some shade. Utilise the vertical space in a small balcony with hanging planters or wall-mounted planters.

2. Indoor Vertical Garden

Vertical gardens are a great way to add greenery to your home while conserving space. Use it as a focal point and to bring life to your room. Choose a wall-mounted planter box or a modular system that can be expanded as your plant collection grows. Select plants that thrive in low-light conditions such as ferns, snake plants, or philodendrons.

3. Hanging Plants

Add dimension and texture to your space by Hanging plants from the ceiling, from a bookshelf, or even from a windowsill. Spider plants, pothos, or ivy can create a lush and calming environment and flowers such as petunias or impatiens add vibrance. Hang the plants from the ceiling using macrame or woven plant hangers to add a touch of bohemian charm to your living spaces.

4. Window Sill Gardens

Window sill gardens are a great option if you’re a beginner. They can easily be incorporated in all the rooms, creating tiny pockets of green. Make sure to choose plants that thrive in the sunlight, such as succulents or herbs like basil and parsley and flowers such as cosmos, marigold, ixora.

5. Terrariums

Terrariums are a unique way to bring a mini ecosystem into your home. These glass containers can be filled with different types of soil, sand, or rocks to create a miniature landscape. Choose to add small succulents or ferns, creating a self-sustaining environment that requires little maintenance. They look great as décor, use them as centrepieces or as part of your hanging garden.

6. A Relaxing Green Bathroom

Your bathroom may not be the first place you think of when it comes to adding greenery to your home, but it’s a great spot to create a relaxing green oasis. You can add plants that thrive in high humidity, such as ferns or orchids. Create a natural spa-like atmosphere by incorporating natural materials such as stone and wood in the design.

7. Living Walls

Living walls are the ultimate statement piece and can transform any room into a green oasis. Install them in the foyer, the living room, or your balcony as an accent wall. Living walls require a bit more maintenance, but the payoff is worth it.
