No one hates to add plants to their indoor spaces.
Plants brighten up the atmosphere and provide us with fresh air and positive energy. Not only that but there are several popular interior design styles where indoor plants are distinctive characteristics such as Bohemian style, Japanese style, etc.
Nonetheless, indoor plants are only limited to pot plants.
There is so much more we can do. People usually believe that climbing plants are only suitable for outdoor spaces such as gardens, terraces, and even balconies. However, the fact is that they can be beautifully incorporated into our interior.
Climbers add richness and depth to your interior space. To accomplish that, you need to know how to grow climbing plants with the right kind of support. Below are a few tips that will help you decorate your home with climbing plants.
How to Decorate a house with Climbing Plants
1.Choose the Right Climbing Plants:
This is the first thing you need to know before figuring out how to decorate your interior with climbers. There are several climbing plants available in the market but not all of them will look good in a room.
Devil’s ivy, Hedera, and Monstera are some of the most popular indoor climbing plants. But, these are all leafy plants. If you prefer to create a dramatic look, you may want to opt for climbing plants with flowers such as Morning Glory.
Different plants have different appearances. That is why, before you decide to decorate your house with climbing plants, the most important thing is to know what type of plants you prefer. Once you are done with choosing the right plant for your interior, you can easily get down to decorating the spaces according to that.
2.Plants at Different Levels:
Adding plants at different levels brings variety and depth to your interior. For example, you can grow climbing plants on a certain item on the floor, window, or even on walls. You can also add other plants along with the climbing ones to create a more interesting space. This will help create a pattern in the space you are designing.
This is one of the characteristics of what we call layering in interior design. It is done by finding the right color scheme, texture, pattern, and shape to create the depth and richness of a room.
Remember not to clutter the space by placing the plants too close to each other. Most people fill the entire room with plants, which is not suitable for living. Plants are meant to be kept as one of the many decorative items inside your house so you shouldn’t overuse them.
Green climbing plants look best on light-colored walls such as white, cream, beige, and so on. They create a perfect contrasting background and make your space look fresh and welcoming.
It also helps create a focal point in your room. You can also add wood cladding to a certain part of your room to provide an earthy environment. Wood and plants together create a natural and calming environment for your indoors.
You can decide whether to use minimal climbing plants over your wall to cover the entire wall with plants. But if you are going for the ceiling as well, and then make sure to have only a small part of it covered. Too much use of plants will make the space chaotic. If you are bored of using leafy plants, you can cover the entire wall with climbing plants with colorful flowers.
4.Decorative Item as Support:
There are many varieties of decorative items that can act as a good supportive item for your plants. For example, you can start by using a vintage-styled step ladder. It can be either big or small, depending on your requirement.
You can cover the ladder with climbing plants and use the steps in between to put potted plants. Find a space for it beside the window where natural sunlight will not only keep the plants healthy but also provide good aesthetics to a space. Likewise, you can experiment with many such objects such as a bar cart, wooden small shelves, vintage cabinets, bookshelves, and so on.
The more creative you can be with your décor, the better your room will end up looking. Also, remember to keep in mind that if the spaces you wish to have climbing plants on are too difficult to grow, then you can opt for high-quality faux plants as well. Although it won’t have the same effect as real plants, it gets the job done.
You can choose whether to make your plants trail or climb. Trailing vines look best in mid-century interior-style homes.
These plants are placed at certain heights so your pets and kids won’t be able to play with them. As for climbing plants, it looks best in contemporary design with plain walls.
