Would you plant a tree in your bedroom? Kylie Jenner's answer is yes. The socialite's sleep space is complete with a potted bamboo tree in one of the corners.

Though houseplants commonly appear in homes, an entire tree in the bedroom takes the style a step further. Using a tree as decor takes up more space and requires more maintenance than the typical easy indoor plant. It's a bold but effective look that Jenner makes look easy in her space. 

From aesthetic properties to mental health benefits, there are a whole host of reasons why indoor trees are experts' home accessories of choice.

First, they have a host of mental health benefits, especially when used in the bedroom. Mark Lane, BBC Gardeners' World Presenter and gardening expert at Stannah states: 'Indoor plants have the power to reduce symptoms such as headaches, sore eyes, loss of concentration and feelings of depression. Houseplants particularly can improve your mood, reduce fatigue, plus lower stress and anxiety.'

He continues, 'Your bedroom is a sanctuary for relaxation, so you need plants that purify the air while having a cleansing, calming effect on you to aid sleep.'

Beautiful houseplants have benefits for physical health as well. Lane tells Homes & Gardens: 'Indoor air pollution is 2-10 times higher than outdoors, as contained areas enable pollutants emitted from furnishings, detergents and paints to build up. Fascinatingly, certain plants reduce these pollutants by taking them into the plant via the air and then turning them into food at the roots.'

In addition to the practical ways that indoor plants can improve a home, they add a natural flair and beauty to any room. First, even a faux houseplant can add a touch of green to an otherwise neutral space. Second, they create a lived-in accessorized feel at a low cost even if they are the only thing in the room.
