Nonetheless, houseplants are the perfect way to spruce up any space and give it that extra touch of vibrancy.

Step 1: Pick A Spot
Before lavish terrariums, lush gardens, and cascading vines take over all of your free surfaces, it's important to consider the amount of light available in each room before you buy your first houseplant. After all, plants need light to grow—so make sure none of them end up living in the dark!
Take a quick look around your home and decide which windows, balconies, or even corners are getting the most light. This information will help you determine what type of plant is best suited.
Hewma Tip: If there is a plant that you see and you like, do a bit of research ahead of time and decide if this species may be better suited for less sunny spaces, or if you prefer having some leafy friends around more glowing days, that information is just a few clicks (or finger taps if you're using your phone) away.
Step 2: Pick A Plant Size & Shape
Decorating with houseplants is a great way to liven up any space, but when you're looking for the perfect pick, the size and shape of your space should be the number one determining factor.
If you have shelf space in smaller areas, a hardy spider plants would be a great option. For a vertical element that can fit on corners or narrow spaces, an interesting pothos would do the trick. Of course, having plenty of room allows you to explore a variety of floor plants such as bird's nest ferns, snake plants and dracaenas that bring both beauty and life into your home.
And, if you're still struggling to find that perfect plant for your space, think of it like playing a game of real-life Tetris - shift and arrange plants until they fill your entire area!
