Plants in the living room have been a steadfast interior design trend over the last several years. With this trend's enduring appeal, it's helpful to know more about the most popular plants featured in professional designs. Here are some of the most popular trending plants to have in your space:
Monstera deliciosa, sometimes called the Swiss cheese plant because of its perforated leaves, is a mainstay of trendy interior designs. Monsteras are simple to care for and extremely rewarding, growing quickly to a large size with unique and stunning leaves. Only requiring bright indirect light and semiregular watering, a monstera deliciosa makes a perfect addition to a bright living room corner or in front of a window.
Snake plants have been a favorite of interior designers due to their bold, angular appearance. Their long, rigid, sword-shaped leaves can draw attention to vertical spaces and contrast nicely with softer shapes and textures in a room. As far as living room plants go, it doesn't get lower-maintenance than a snake plant, either. These plants are related to succulents and very seldom need water. They are also highly adaptable to lower-light conditions, making them a versatile and trendy choice for your space.
Rubber trees, or ficus elastica, are another excellent choice of trendy plant for your living room. These plants can stay small enough to dress up an end table or shelf, or grow into trees reaching ten feet high. Rubber trees will thrive in a bright room with moderate temperatures and average humidity. They also make a striking addition to any style of decor.
