These kinds of indoor plants come with a lot of creativity and scope for decor. All you need is empty floor spaces or corners. The colour of your room doesn’t even matter when you use floor plants for decoration. These can be small enough to be kept on a table or long enough to decorate the sides of your furniture. 

Having said that, there are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to using a floor plant. Such as, keeping the floor plant in proper lighting as they breathe too. The size and scale of your floor plant should match the space or furniture they are kept next to in your room. A small room with a big floor plant does not look good and a big room with a small floor plant will leave a lot of empty space. So, make sure to keep the size in sync with the placement of your indoor plants.
