There are numerous ways to add indoor trees to your home interior design. You can use them as the primary feature of a space, a last minute styling detail, a bathroom accent, and so much more.

Let’s look at some creative ways to incorporate indoor trees into your home décor to make delightful accents:

Maximize High Ceilings

Consider maximizing high ceilings and exposed beams with a giant indoor tree that stretches upward. The height of the trees will draw the eye upward to exhibit the architectural lines of the lofted ceiling. Take the living room in the picture shown above, for instance; the shades of cream and natural wood finishes help highlight the excellent green floor-to-ceiling centerpiece.

The fact that the tree is right by the side door entrance to the courtyard is also impressive. As you get into the room, the leaves ease the transition taking the outdoors inside. This also plays off the sun-faded neutral color pallet.

Room Dividers

Instead of using furniture and opaque screens to delineate various parts of a larger room, you can use indoor trees to act as visual room dividers. Take the picture shown above, for instance; the dining room and living room blend into one another whereas the more casual kitchen is rather separated by the citrus tree.

Moreover, the bulbous shape of the tree instantly adds personality to the room, and hence creating movement from floor to ceiling.  When it comes to choosing the suitable indoor trees for your home, go for ones that suit your signature style.

This particular tree is not only unique; it is timeless as well. It is stylish yet minimalistic, just like the space within which it lives.

Put Tall Indoor Tree on Wheels

Consider putting a tall fiddle-leaf fig tree in an empty corner of a room. Its large, feathery leaves will fill and transform the space. Be sure to make the tree mobile. In this way, you will be able to roll it away to clean the space or to protect it from excessive sunlight. You just need to get a piece of precut bluestone from a landscaping center mounted on a wheeled caddie.

Vertical Kitchen Garden

You can also have indoor trees in your kitchen. Simply create a little vertical garden for herbs and succulents. The plants will look awesome in the room, contributing to the overall warm décor. Moreover, you will always have fresh grocery to cook with.

If your kitchen receives sufficient sunlight and you have some patience, you can also consider growing dwarf lime trees in the room.
