7 of the best statement plants for indoor styling

Looking to spruce up your space? Look no further.

Gone are the days of small succulents lining the windowsill, as the rising trend continues to see bigger statement plants in people's homes. According to the Royal Horticultural Society’s 2020 gardening trends report, indoor plants are going supersized with more people loving the effortless style of their Fiddle leaf fig.

While we continue to spend more on plants than ever before, we've listed the seven of the best that bring the most style to your home:

Fiddle leaf fig

This little beauty was one of the first plants to make an entrance, loved for its ability to look chic in every room, for every style. This plant works on its own in a corner of a room or a statement piece next to a side piece of furniture. All you need to do is make sure you give it just enough sun and water it in regular, small amounts.

Snake plant

These iconic plants continue to be a favourite due to their hardiness and minimal care. They're basically unkillable, so they're the perfect addition to those who worry about keeping their green friends alive. Plus, their unique leaves make an iconic statement piece for any room and look super sophisticated in a large pot to centre the space. These are a great all-rounder!

Swiss cheese plant

Also known as the Monstera, these plants make the perfect statement piece with their large, floppy leaves and vibrant green colour. The Swiss cheese plant is also a great option for those less confident with plant care, as it just needs some indirect sun and moist soil. A medium sized plant is best showcased indoor in a standing pot.

Rubber plant

Rubber plants are the perfect office plant and make a great statement in the bedroom. Reaching 3ft, these beauties are loved for their dark, large glossy leaves making an understated presence in any space. They thrive with lots of natural light but only need watering once or twice a week. For the tonal minimalist, this is for you.

Kentia palm

A native plant from Lord Howe Island, palms are a super-easy addition to clean spaces. The frayed leaves certainly make a statement to any space, as well as their unmissable height. The vibrant green warms the tone of the room making it blend with softer colours. The great news is that's relatively easy to look after, only needing sunlight and regular watering.
