ADDING LIVING DÉCOR TO A DORM ROOM
It’s early in August, but many parents are preparing to pack their kids for college. Many kids are leaving home for the first time and will spend their first year of college living in a dorm room. We all know how small and cramped a dorm room can be—especially when sharing the room with another person or two.
So, let’s think about doing a little interior decorating for our dorm room with plants. Adding just a few plants to a dorm room will add interest and complement the space. Also, living with plants has a calming effect and helps with anxiety. In addition, plants are called “clean air machines” because they clean the air we breathe.
HERE ARE MY TOP 5 CHOICES FOR HOUSEPLANTS IN A DORM ROOM
- ZZ Plant
- Snake Plant
- Peace Lily
The common denominators with all five of my choices are: low maintenance, low light, virtually pest-free, slow growing, and do not require lots of watering. Come in to see us, and let us show you these plants. We keep these plants in our stock year-round and have them available in different sizes.
When you have an extended Christmas or spring break, you don’t have to worry—just water the plants well before leaving. They will be quite happy when you return.
After you have made your selection, look at all the plant accessories we offer, such as beautiful and colorful containers that come in all shapes and sizes. These colorful containers can match the décor of the dorm room.
