NASA’s Clean Air Study found that house plants, “…may provide a natural way of removing toxic agents from the air, helping neutralize the effects of sick building syndrome.” Ten modern, air-filtering, long-living houseplants include:
- Spider plant
- Devil’s ivy
- Lady palm
- Aloe vera
- Peace lily
- Snake plant
Here are some beautifully modern ideas for displaying house plants of any shape and size.
Hanging house plants from the ceiling
Filled with devil’s ivy, a unique hanging wall planter creates a canopy over the dining table. A macramé hanging pot holder is another great way to display house plants without sacrificing counter space. Try hanging house plants at different heights to create visual interest. Exotic orchids can appear to float when hung from the ceiling and paired with driftwood or ceramic planters. Hanging plants from the ceiling is a great way to move the eye upwards, and to create depth in various ways.
A corner of house plants
A room’s corner is the perfect place for hanging house plants, however, if hanging house plants isn’t possible in your corner of choice, consider adding a bookshelf or rack for your house plants.
Wall-mounted house plant display
If hanging a house plant isn’t possible or practical, you can always mount a planter to a wall. A floating ledge also works well to hold a collection of house plants. Try varying the heights of the plants, or adding one vine-style hanging plant to the mix. A modern wall planter is perfect for filling the space behind a sofa.
A unique wall hanging system for plants can include openings for planters to sit in – this new way of displaying plants can help you move away from shelving if you feel you already have a lot of shelves in your home. Take advantage of a kitchen’s wall caddy system to house a small grouping of indoor plants, rather than cooking utensils
A large fig does very well in an ornamental planter, located in a bright corner. Unique planters can also be an easy and simple way to add a pop of colour in your home if your living area typically follows a clean, white palette. For a contemporary kitchen table look, place low-maintenance aloe in brightly coloured cubic pots. If you’re big on thinking outside the planter, choose large glass bottles and ceramic vases for their indoor plants instead. If you’re a big fan of planters but don’t want the traditional box shape, Salvocorp’s range of products are versatile enough to create planters in imaginative shapes and styles. Create a new look with an old planter style that will elevate your indoor plant collection.
A rack of house plants
Group a collection of low-maintenance indoor plants, such as aloe and succulents, on a narrow shelf for impact.
House plant boxes
A long, homemade wooden box makes the perfect planter for indoor-friendly vines. Limited for space, you can also add some green to your breakfast area with a narrow, built-in planter box filled with snake plants.
Window house plant displays
Hanging towel racks for small house plants is a good way to capitalize on the natural sunshine from a window. For a beautiful display of indoor plants, hang small pots at varying heights near a window. Or, create a collection of plants by placing them on a floating shelf near the light source. You don’t have to have a green thumb or an interior design degree to bring a beautiful touch of nature indoors. All you need is a little inspiration and the right house plants to make it happen.
