Living In A Tiny Room? Make Your Window Look Like A Pinterest Dream

    Living in tiny and compact spaces teaches you two things – to make do with whatever space you have, and to beautify that space as much as you can. With these box-like apartments, and the lack of big balconies or sprawling gardens, windows make for a good alternative, from setting the plants to growing their own herbs.

    Here are some suggestions for using your window as the best way to make a one-room situation as fancy as possible.

    #Tip1: Add Some Plants (& Vibrancy)

    The easiest way to beautify any window would be to hang plants around it. A lot of the windows have window sills, or large spaces outside it, with grills. It’s the perfect place to hang your plants. Get some creepers, and align them to the grills, from beautiful colourful flowery mandevillas to English ivy creepers.

    Here are a bunch of online nurseries where you can order these from! 

    Apart from plants and creepers, you can also order in colourful accessories and planters. It will add some drama and vibrancy! If you’re looking for low maintenance plants, go for the indoor plants that don’t require you to water them as often. 

    #Tip2: Fairy Lights, FTW

    #Tip4: Turn It Into A Mini Farm

    Jalebi

    You can also start your own indoor kitchen herb garden. Grow some fresh herbs, which are easy to take care of and do not require hourly maintenance. Some of the easiest herbs to grow at home are mint, basil, parsley, or even cilantro. All you need is a medium-sized pot, seeds and soil. 

    We grew a cute little farm using these plantable stationery. Called Jalebi, this eco-friendly brand offers pencils, which once used can be used to grow plants. These are made from waste newspapers with seeds attached at their end. These pencils come in a pack of 10 with two seeds each of coriander, tomatoes, chili, marigold, and tulsi and cost INR 100. Jalebi also has seeds that come attached with notebooks and bookmarks and a range of waterproof diaries. The plantable seed paper bags are also worth checking out. 

    You can also check out Altifarm which will make your dream of a home farm come true. 

    #Tip5: Upcycle Old Stuff & Use It As Decor

    Got old bottles, CDs or boxes? Simply upcycle and use them as decor. For example, it is very easy to use the old tins, old jam bottles for plants. We tried a DIY with an old wine bottle. You can either hang them, or just keep them at the window. Other items that can come handy are kettles, cups, and even used deep dishes – just get some soil, and you have a plant growing out of a kitchen item.

    #Tip6: Add Some Words (Or Sassy Quotes)

    Arrange some decor frames, hang up some quotes and add a fun element to make your window a smart one. There are tons of options when it comes to decor in our very own Shop. Our favourite pick? This 'Hope, Dream, Love Believe' hanging. Likewise, we've got options with sassy quotes as well. Find 'em here.
