Tips on Styling Plants and Flowers in Your Property
If you’re across the world of interior design, or have taken a peek at Instagram recently, chances are you’ve noticed that indoor plant styling is a hugely popular trend people just can’t seem to get enough of.
While they can be a beautiful addition to any home, the reasons behind the interest in plants and flowers go beyond pretty petals, however.
Indoor plants are a quick and clever way to inject a little life and colour into an otherwise plain room, yes. But they also have the ability to transform the layout of a space and offer the benefit of purifying the air in your property. Studies have even gone to show that plants can help reduce stress and boost your mood…which, when it comes to putting a house or apartment up for sale, can make all the difference!
If you’re interested in learning about how to style indoor plants, we can certainly help you there! The team at Adore Property Styling are full of indoor plant ideas that can freshen up a space in no time.
Now, while the use of plants can be a speedy way to update the look of an area, there are a few things to consider first.
As a start, you’ll need to look at the property you’re styling and decide where you’d like your plants to sit. Will they be in full light? Are they filling an empty corner? What kind of conditions will they be living in?
It’s also useful to think about what kind of plant-owner you are. Do you take extreme care of your blooms or are you likely to forget about them right away? The last thing you want is for buyers to walk into a space filled with the browning leaves of neglected plants.
All of these questions will help inform you on the type of plant you should be taking home. A few fairly safe bets, however, include: peperomia plants, peace lilies, rubber plants (yes, they’re real) and dieffenbachia plants.
Next, think about the best placement for the plants you’ve got!
If you’re hoping to brighten up dead space at the entrance of the property or perhaps beside a large piece of furniture, opt for a tall, eye-catching floor plant. It will soften the look of the area instantly.
For pops of colour or to add a few homely touches, however, use smaller pot plants on tables or shelves.
And don’t forget floral arrangements, either. If you’ve chosen mainly neutral-looking furniture and decorative pieces, a lush floral bouquet can be a simple addition that will help the space feel inviting to potential buyers.
The use of greenery and flowers is a great way to make your property look like a home, ready for interested buyers so, if you need any further assistance on introducing plants into your design plans or refreshing your space in any way, feel free to contact the Adore Property team.
