Ah, the age-old dilemma of how to decorate a room with sky-high ceilings. It can feel like you're living in a museum exhibit with nothing but a gaping void above your head. But fear not, dear reader, for we have the answer: houseplants! That's right, these green wonders can not only brighten up your home but also help make your high ceilinged rooms feel more homely and intimate.
Let's tackle the most obvious issue first: empty walls. High ceilings can make furniture and decor look puny and insignificant. But have you ever seen a houseplant that wasn't jaw-dropping? With towering plants like the Fiddle Leaf Fig, Palms, or Dracaena, you can add grandeur and drama to your room. These plants can reach heights of six feet or more, filling your bare walls in no time.
But what about the lack of coziness? While a vast space may be great for parties, it can also feel frigid and uninviting. Enter the shelf houseplants! These plants perch on shelves or bookcases, injecting a burst of green into your decor. Whether it's a collection of succulents or a single large fern, shelf houseplants bring life and warmth to a room.
What if you don't have shelves or bookcases to spare? No problem! You can still enjoy the benefits of houseplants by using hanging houseplants. These plants hang from the ceiling, adding a lush, tropical vibe to your home. From the classic Pothos to the vibrant Tradescantia, there's a hanging houseplant for every decor style.
With acres of space at your disposal, you can afford to go for larger, bushier plants that might otherwise swallow up a smaller space. Opt for plants with gigantic leaves that will break up flat colors with their unique patterns and shadows.
But hold on, tall ceilings don't equate to bright rooms. If you're facing the north, natural light can still be limited, even with a floor-to-ceiling window. Fear not, though, with a range of shade-tolerant indoor plants to choose from, you can find the perfect fit that'll thrive in your space.
