1. Elegant and refined

This beautiful Zen garden is very aesthetically appealing. It is delimited by perfect lines, where different types of stone and gravel work together to create a very elegant design. This is ideal for a corner in the house.

2. Protected plants without external factors

One of the advantages to having an indoor garden rather than a terrace is that you will have less noise and the maintenance of the plants will be that much easier as they will be protected from the cold and the wind.

3. Low maintenance

The needs of indoor plants do not differ too much to the needs of outdoor plants. They need light, a pleasant temperature, some humidity and good ventilation.

4. Pots are a great choice

When it comes to an indoor garden, plants can be placed in pots for a modern and organized design. It also allows you to move the plants around if need be. 

Potted gardens can accommodate any type of plant as well as any size.

5. The perfect space for a healthy and beautiful garden

The success of an indoor garden is based on the choice of the interior positioning, ensuring that plants will grow and thrive.

In this design we can see that an area has been chosen that features lots of windows and sunlight. Normally windows that face the east or the west allow the most sunlight in.

6. Reinforced with artificial light

Choose a lighting system for your interior garden, illuminating the different details and designs.

7. Take advantage of the walls

Another way to make the most of your interior space is to utilize the walls of the house. Don't you love this design, by professionals MC3 Architects?

Creating a Zen garden can be quite pleasant, meditative and incredibly aesthetic. The size is not important, but the elements that are used are. Opt for simple and clean lines with decorative elements such as stones, gravel, rocks and bamboo sticks.

10. Perfect for giving renewed aesthetics to the house

Interior gardens are an element to keep in mind if you are designing a new house or thinking about remodeling it. It is the perfect way to take advantage of spaces, especially in the rooms of the house that don't have an outside view.

An interior garden element that will make an interior design more appealing is the presence of a small fountain.
