2. Add Height

Using hanging planters, wall baskets and shelves can add a clever element to your home décor, whether it's funky geometric shapes or more typical woven baskets. It also helps if you don't have much space – you can plant up, rather than out.

3. Make Flowers A Work Of Art

Flowers are undoubtedly beautiful in themselves, but using them to create art is a more unique way of displaying them. You can create wall art by arranging potted flowers on mounted wooden boxes or encasing them in a glass cloche, à la Beauty and The Beast. You can even create a striking feature by planting rooted flowers in water, where you can watch them grow.

5. Change Up Your Rooms

Most people just choose to have flowers in dining rooms or living rooms. However, adding some plants into kitchens and bathrooms can enhance these areas and make them more welcoming, giving them a pop of colour and a fragrant scent.

6. Make Your Flowers The Centre Of Attention

Flowers are often used merely as a side note to your other décor. However, making them the centrepiece of the room can be a clever way to use them. You can display them proudly on cake stands or create test tube chandeliers, with individual stems arranged in a striking chandelier, to make sure your blooms grab attention.

7. Use Them To Add Detail

That being said, flowers are a perfect way to enhance your existing decor. Hand-making flower garlands to drape over a prized painting will enhance it, while adding in an interesting floral detail outside of the typical bouquet. A 'flowercake' can also draw attention to a particular table when arranged in the centre.

8. Dried Or Pressed Flowers

Not everyone has the time to take care of a large collection of flowers. In that case, dried or pressed flowers can still add a colourful detail to your home. It could be in the form of pressed flower coasters or a dried arrangement that can be personalised time and time again.

9. Use Your Space

Making the most of the space you do have is one way to bring flowers into your home: using small potted flowers or succulents as bookends, creating a pegboard to which you can mount a wall basket or even just building a flower shelf unit are all easy ways to introduce flowers.

10. Go Bold

One of the best ways to use flowers in your home is to go all out. Making your home a green-fingered wonderland is easier than you might think - dedicate a specific corner of one of your rooms to create an array of flower displays or create a walkway full of draping flowers and plants.

11. Get Creative

A clever way to introduce flowers to your home is just to use your creativity: an ombre display of flowers arranged from one colour to another or using different textures, displaying succulents with flowers, is a unique way to use flowers.
