Areca palms are perfect for adding a bold, tropical touch to your home. These variety of beautiful palm trees thrive as houseplants in bright rooms. It's easy to decorate with these plants: Use palms to break up a section of blank wall, to fill an empty corner, to soften the edges of windows or furniture, or act as a living sculpture at the end of a side table. A row of houseplant palms can make for a lovely living screen or room divider, too! An easy way to dress up any palm is to grow it in an attractive container. Look for pots that match your decor style or color scheme. Tall, narrow pots are especially fun for houseplant palms because they accent the trees' elegant, upright shapes.
