Having a well-furnished house in Singapore is nice and all and quite common but sometimes a home still feels like it lacks life or that spark that makes it feel livelier. If you happen to be facing such a situation, perhaps you should consider livening up your home using indoor plants.
You are probably wondering why one would want to have plants in their home. The answer is rather simple. Greenery brings that feeling of nature into the home. There is something interesting about simply having some fresh green plants growing somewhere near a window or well-lit wall that brings some extra feeling of warmth and liveliness. However, this is not a very common thing in Singapore households but lately, it has been gaining popularity.
