Potted Plants Make a House Feel Like Home

By Simon Crowther @prestigeflower

Potted plants have a wonderful effect on your environment. They have a way of improving your mood and they even offer various health benefits. By purifying the air you breathe, you can enjoy a healthier lifestyle too. Plants can also make your house feel that much more like a home.


Your front door is the first thing you will really notice when entering your home. Take the time to dress it up with some potted plants. Flowering plants are particularly great because they add colour to an otherwise dull area. Your entrance hall can also do with some sprucing up provided you have enough space and natural light. Remember, you don't need a large plant to create a significant effect. A smaller plant on your entrance hall table will more than suffice.

Dining room

Your dining room is where you will spend much of your time together as a family. This is all the more reason to decorate this area of your home with potted plants. It will make the room that much more inviting. It is also great because you can leave the plant in the middle of the table so that it never appears empty.

Coffee table

Much like your dining room table, your coffee table can also do with some colour and life. You don't necessarily need a flowering plant to do this. Even one that does not bloom will still add life and warmth to the room with its lush green leaves.


Even your bathroom can use the natural beauty of potted plants. The plant you choose should be one that enjoys a humid environment and you will need to ensure that it receives enough light too. Orchids are a great choice because they don't take up much space either. Succulents also do well in just about any environment and they don't grow quickly either.


It's important to take care when choosing potted plants for your bedroom. Not all plants release oxygen at night so make sure that you don't add a plant that makes the air you breathe less oxygen-rich while you sleep.

When choosing potted plants for your home, make sure that you choose them according to their needs and what you are able to provide. Different plants have different lighting, temperature and care requirements. To get the most out of them, you need to ensure that you will be able to cater to these needs.
