Having indoor plants can transform any space in your home. Plants add life, color, texture, and even improve indoor air quality. With so many varieties to choose from, there are indoor plants suitable for every room in your house. I’ve put together a guide to help you pick the best indoor plants for each room.

Plants for the Living Room

The living room is often the heart of the home where you spend time relaxing with family and entertaining guests. Choose plants that are easy to care for and add a welcoming feel.

Snake Plant

The snake plant, also known as mother-in-law’s tongue, is a classic houseplant with upright, sword-shaped leaves. Snake plants are virtually indestructible and tolerate low light conditions. Their bold architectural shape makes a dramatic statement in any living room.

Peace Lily

With dark green leaves and delicate white flowers, peace lilies are elegant yet easy to grow. Peace lilies enjoy bright, indirect light and high humidity. As an added bonus, peace lilies help purify indoor air by removing toxins.

Fiddle Leaf Fig

The fiddle leaf fig is beloved for its large, vibrant leaves that look like fiddle shapes. Although they require bright light, fiddle leaf figs add organic style and a touch of the outdoors to living spaces. Their broad leaves make a bold impression in any room.

Plants for the Kitchen

Bringing plants into the kitchen enhances the room’s warmth and personality. Choose varieties that can handle the higher light and humidity of this active space.

Aloe Vera

With its smooth, fleshy leaves, the aloe vera plant has a clean, modern look that suits contemporary kitchens. Beyond style, aloe vera has many uses – from healing burns and cuts to adding flavor and nutrients to smoothies. Aloe thrives on bright, direct light.


No kitchen is complete without fresh herbs like basil, parsley, thyme and mint. Planting herbs indoors provides easy access while cooking. Place them in a sunny window and water when the soil is dry. Bonus: snipping herbs to flavor dishes is relaxing and rewarding.


Available in a diverse range of colors, orchids bring elegance to kitchens. Mount orchids or place their pots among other plants on windowsills or shelves where they can soak up plenty of humidity and indirect sunlight. Water them once a week.

Plants for the Bedroom

Bedrooms should promote rest and relaxation. Choose plants that are low maintenance and can cleanse indoor air overnight while you sleep.

Snake Plant

The trusty snake plant thrives in low light, making it an excellent choice for bedrooms. Snake plants give off oxygen at night, improving air quality. Place them in a corner or on a nightstand.


With its trailing vines and heart-shaped leaves, pothos is a classic houseplant that hangs beautifully in hanging baskets. It filters out airborne toxins like formaldehyde and benzene. Let the vines drape over the bed or dresser for a tranquil vibe.


The intoxicating fragrance of gardenia’s white blooms will make any bedroom feel like a tropical escape. Gardenias prefer bright, indirect light and moist soil. Place them near a window and water frequently for the best results.

Plants for the Bathroom

In bathrooms, plants help absorb moisture, filter impurities from the air, and add organic appeal. Choose plants that can tolerate steam from showers.

Boston Fern

With long, graceful fronds, the Boston fern thrives in the humid environment of bathrooms. Mist the leaves often and place near an East-facing window for healthy growth. Use Boston ferns as hanging plants or in elevated pots.


Also known as air plants, tillandsia species add striking textures without soil or pots. Their silver-green leaves absorb moisture and nutrients from the air. Affix tillandsia to pieces of driftwood or shells and place in the bathroom. Spritz them with water to keep them thriving.


From vibrant Cattleyas to fragrant Phalaenopsis, orchids lend exotic elegance to bathrooms. Bathroom windows provide the bright, humid conditions orchids need. Water them weekly and watch them fill the space with beauty.

No matter your interior decor, there’s an indoor plant to match. With this room-by-room guide, you can pick plants that will boost your mood and keep each space looking its best. The right plants bring life indoors! Let me know if you have any other questions about choosing and caring for indoor plants.
