10 Tips for Plant Aesthetic in Small Space Decorating

My brothers gifted me a hand-made table…although I think of it as more of a bench. It fit perfectly under the window in our living room and gave me the perfect opportunity to try owning plants again. Because I enjoy keeping a simple space it has been tough for me to figure out a good plant aesthetic for decorating our small house. This bench seemed like a perfect starting point. As I started researching, I started to find similar trends that other minimalists have used to add plants to their small house decorating without making their spaces feel cluttered. Here are 10 tips for having good plant aesthetic when you are living in a small space.

Ladder Shelving

A beautifully styled ladder shelf is perfect when it comes to small house decorating. It works so well because it can stylishly store items like books, pictures or plants without taking up very much space.

Some plants need a lot of light, right? What better way to get them the sun they need than by putting them smack dab in the middle of a window? This gorgeous plant aesthetic could be especially beneficial if your small space has a less-than-green view.

Elevated plant stands

Using elevated plant stands to create a nice plant aesthetic in a small space is genius especially for those of us who don’t have side tables or nightstands. These tall plant stands help create the illusion of having a table without actually giving you any additional space to add clutter to!

Nightstand greenery

You don’t see many plants in bedrooms these days which is unfortunate because a lot of plants offer air detoxifying benefits that would be beneficial in a bedroom.

Homeology talks about this Oldecors plan that is very resiliant and does well in any type of light which makes it pretty perfect for some nightstand plant aesthetic.

Trees in the window

If you have a great window in your small space that brings in a lot of light, finding a light-loving tree can really help that sunshine pop. This Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree from Garden Goods Direct is perfect for propping near a large window. Placing the pot in a large basket like this also really adds great plant aesthetic and does a great job of hiding an unattractive pot.

Tucked away greens

This next plan has that same “plant in a basket” look the I love. Instead of putting your plant on display, another great ption for creating great plant aesthetic in a small space is to find little places to add pops of greens.

The plan below from Style Curator does a great job of staying out of the way, it doesn’t take up additional space, yet you still get that fresh plant aesthetic.

Brighten up dark paint

Using dark paint in a small space can be tricky. You might want to use dark colors you love but you don’t want to close in your space too much. A great way to do both is by adding bright plants with white pots in the darkest places. They do a great job brightening up this deep blue corner with this hanging loop.

This gold loop found on Etsy is a gorgeous way to liven up some dark paint while still keeping your small space extra stylish.
