Plants add a sense of life and energy to a home which is why you should add them to your entryway to create a natural and vibrant ‘wow’ factor. Indoor plants set a welcoming tone as the colours of nature make our homes feel fresh, calm as well as renewed, which is a nice ambiance to enjoy after coming home for a long day of work or school. Not only do indoor plants make a space feel alive, they also add great texture, shape and colour to a room. Plants are also a long term design solution as they can stand the test of time. This can save you money in the long run.
It’s a great way to tie the outdoors in, so on those rainy cold days when we don’t wish to venture outside we still feel like we have been! They are also beneficial to our health, removing the air of toxins, so not only do they look great indoors they are also cleaning the air we breathe, creating a natural barrier as we make our way in and out of the home.
Plants are a great way to dress up your homes entryway for the festive seasons, for example, by adding a Dwarf Pine tree during December will instantly make your home look and smell like Christmas.
Add plants to compliment the theme of your home. If you have a more coastal vibe, choose some tropical style plants. If you’re going for a more modern chic style, then a fabulous orchard would look amazing and vibrant in your entryway.
If lack of space is an issue in your entryway, utilise your walls and ceiling by installing hanging baskets of foliage or perhaps even a beautiful green cascading wall.
Suggested plants that look fantastic in the entryway are; Ficus elastica (Rubber Tree), Sanseveria (Mother in Laws Tongue), Ficus lyrata (Fiddle Leaf Fig) and Spathiphyllum (Peace Lily).
