Give the corners of your living room a little flair. You can arrange houseplants in the same way that you arrange a bouquet of flowers. There are so many decorative pots you can order on Amazon or Etsy to give your indoor plants some color.

3) Hang on Wall

A variety of containers can be purchased to allow you to hang some houseplants directly off the wall. There are also some that can be suctioned to windows, which work great for smaller plants.

4) Hang from Ceiling

You can hang your houseplants on the from the ceiling for a different look. Many plants, like Hoyas or Pothos, look great when they’re hanging—especially above your head!

5) Use a Large Houseplant as a Focal Point

Bigger plants are a great way to make a statement. You can see in the photo below that having an indoor plant taller than you can certainly turn heads. Beautifying your home with one or two large plants can make a difference on your well being too. Sometimes less is more! A Dracanea Lisa, Rubber Plant, Kentia Palm, Dracanea marginata or Fiddleleaf Fig are good choices.

6) Room Divider

Room dividers are traditionally thought of as screens that you place in the middle of your living space. However, instead of using a screen or wall, you can use indoor plants. These work great in big homes with an open concept or for small studio apartments.

7) Shelves

Bookshelves or shelves inserted into or against the wall are another way to enhance the beauty of your living room. Embellishing bookshelves with some greenery gives them an extra boost of color. Or you can create a corner shelf that includes a picture frame, a candle, and a hanging plant. The possibilities can go on forever!

8) Adorn a Fireplace

Many homeowners and apartment dwellers never use their fireplaces to start actual fires. However, you can still make good use of the space with indoor plants. Hanging plants would look great sitting on the edge the mantel. Or, smaller houseplants like a Spider Plant can sit at the base of the fireplace. The glossy green tough as nails ZZ Plant is a good option too.

9) Group One Type of Plant

Grouping the same kind of houseplant together, like the Snake Plant pictured below, can show your love for that particular plant. It’s also interesting to see that no two plants look the same, even if they share the same name. There are so many species & varieties of Snake Plants to choose from. Plus, they’re easy as can be to care for and tolerate lower light conditions.

10) Decorate a Table

Tables like the one pictured below, coffee tables or TV stands can be used to house a bunch of indoor plants. With colored pots and a variety of foliage, you can count on this being an easy and eye catching way to grow your collection.

Smaller plants like the African Mask Plant, Snake Plant, Anthurium, Chinese Evergreen, Peace Lily, Baby Rubber Plant, Hoya, Pothos, & Peperomia are great choices for this kind of display.

11) Ladder

We have seen decorative ladders that allow you to hang blankets, scarves and other items. Their purpose is usually to help make the place feel more organized and homey. But, lately we’ve been seeing a trend of indoor plants being placed on these ladders in creative ways. It’s a fun look, especially if you’re short on floor space. I’d love to do a display of cacti and succulents using one of these.

12) Plant Stands

Plant stands (or pot stands are some sellers call them) are a great way to compliment the pots you purchase. They elevate your plants which helps them stand out more in any living space.
