Why You Should Update Your Studio Space With Indoor Gardening

Posted on: 7 July 2015

When you have a studio that's dying for an update, bringing new elements into your space can be a challenge. Not only do you have to abide by both limited spacial parameters and configurations, but existing design elements that make your tiny space a place that's both functional and comfortable. So if you want to update your studio in a way that's both chic and useful, there are a few reasons you should consider indoor gardening.

Breathe New Life

Bringing plants inside is a great way to improve the quality of air inside, and it can give your studio a feeling of friendliness instead of emptiness. Though not everyone is attuned to the energy that plants incorporate into your space, almost anyone can appreciate the change they bring to the atmosphere of your small studio home.

More Than Low-Maintenance

Adding plants to your studio can be accomplished even if you don't have access to a patio or balcony, just as long as you have a little light. Though natural light from at least one window is encouraged for houseplants or outdoor transplants you've decided to cultivate inside, you can also grow great things with artificial lighting when the sun is limited. So instead of resigning to low-light additions that do little beyond boosting your mood, consider branching out to plants that can bring zest and color to your life.

Branch out beyond low-maintenance houseplants through small potted flowers, as well as fruiting plants too. Consider adding herbs, lettuces, peppers, and even dwarf fruiting plants, like calamondins, that can be appreciated year-round for the color and bounty they bring to your studio. If you still crave low-maintenance options that bring color, try cacti, succulents, and violets, for an addition that pops and doesn't require the extra effort. 

There Are Multiple Ways To Save

Indoor decorative planters come in an incredible assortment of designs, with stands and hanging options that make adding plants to your small space easy. Pots can range from minimal to over-the-top prints, so you can accommodate any stylistic element you already have in your studio. You could also save money on accents by painting or illustrating on simple terracotta planters and adding plants into your design.

Since plant stands allow you to tier various pots in a corner or along a wall, you can make the most of your small space with plants. You can also save space with planters you can hang on the wall or from the ceiling, giving you a modern way to enjoy natural beauty. And since some indoor planters incorporate water saving options, you can save money and time trying to make plants in your studio thrive.
