The best hanging indoor plants for your living room to give you a relaxing vibe

Your living room deserves nice hanging indoor plants to fill empty space

Plants have become one of the most in-style items you can place in your home, and the trend doesn’t seem to be slowing anytime soon. To change it up a bit, why not add some hanging indoor plants to your space?

Hanging indoor plants reach eye level so they’re easier to spot than standing plants, and they can also cover up high corners of the room that are otherwise more difficult to decorate. In a living room especially, hanging plants offer a relaxing, inviting vibe. Here are some of the best hanging indoor plants for your living room.

English ivy

A classic English ivy plant should be anyone’s first go-to choice for a living room plant to hang. Its long vines and pointed leaves give real jungle vibes, but when kept trimmed and contained, it brings a certain spice to your living room that you never knew you needed.

Spider plant

A spider plant makes a great hanging indoor plant because of its thin, long, luscious leaves that extend in every direction, like spider legs. The leaves can grow pretty long, which is why spider plants look their best when suspended from the ceiling.

Burro’s tail

You can’t get more trendy than a hanging succulent plant, and the burro’s tail (or donkey’s tail) plant is just that. Succulents have become so popular — they look adorable and are easy to take care of. The same applies to the burro’s tail, which basically looks like a bunch of typical succulent plants glued on top of each other and hanging out of the planter.

String of pearls

The string of pearls is also a succulent plant but is less bulky — and more refined and dainty — than the burro’s tail. Its name describes it well, as it literally looks like a string of green pearls. I’m sure whoever is selling these is glad they’re not called string of peas.

Boston fern

Also known as the sword fern, the leaves of this plant grow along stems to create an edged shape resembling a knight’s steel weapon. The Boston fern is fun and wild, with many leaf stems, each one falling its own way, making hanging this plant in your living room a must.

Golden pothos

The golden pothos is the more refined of the bunch. Its leaves are standard leaf shapes and don’t grow as long as some of the others, although they do hang a bit. This is a great indoor hanging plant for your modern contemporary living room. All of these plants thrive amazingly as indoor plants, requiring just partial sun and a modest amount of water. In other words, they’re easy to keep alive, and we couldn’t recommend them enough for your living room.

These are the best plants to put in your shower for a nature-inspired sanctuary
Adding a plant to your shower benefits both you and the plant
Bathroom with orange walls

Bathroom plants are a rising trend, and for good reason. Who wouldn't want to add a touch of refined nature or create a cozy farmhouse feel in their bathroom? Placing a plant in the shower, however, might seem a bit odd. The truth is, there are many benefits to having a plant in your shower, both for you and for the plant itself. We're going to discuss some of these benefits, and we're going to give you some ideas for the best plants to put in your shower. Once you've added a touch of nature to your shower, you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner.

Why put plants in your shower?
Above and beyond adding a bit of color to your dim shower, there are some health and environmental benefits to keeping plants in your shower.
Less unwanted moisture
It's no secret that bathrooms tend to be hot spots for humidity. Excessive amounts of moisture, however, can have some adverse effects. Mold can grow around your bathroom, the paint on the walls can peel, and certain nasty bugs are attracted to moist places. A shower plant can help reduce unwanted moisture in your bathroom and minimize some of these issues. Since plants need water, they suck it right out of the air, providing the added benefit of not having to water the plant as often.
Cleaner air
You probably know that plants pull carbon dioxide out of the air and emit oxygen, right? But did you know that while this process is taking place, the plant is also filtering the air and pulling toxins out of it? With all of the cleaning products, hair products, and other nasty molecules that leave toxins in your bathroom's air, having a shower plant will allow you to breathe a bit easier and healthier.
Mental health benefits
Having indoor plants comes with numerous health benefits, but the most significant are the benefits to your mental health. We all know that plants are therapeutic, and studies have shown that plants help with stress relief, energy boosts, and even increased concentration and productivity. Why not reap all these mental health benefits right at the start of your day while you shower in the morning?
Elevated decor
Let's face it, indoor plants are beautiful, and they add so much charm and character to any room. Why not apply that same philosophy to your bathroom and shower? Having a plant in your shower is not only trendy and aesthetically pleasing, but it will leave you feeling like you're showering in the tropics.
The plants love it
Putting a plant in the shower not only benefits you, but it also benefits the plant itself. Many plants thrive in humid environments, so you'll see them flourish in your bathroom. If you tend to forget to water your plants for long periods of time, having them in an already moist area will allow you to feel less guilty about neglecting them.
