Plants are amazing for any home, even a shoebox room that smells like feet. They are natural air purifiers, improve your health, linked to mental health benefits and make any home look better.
They are cheap to source from markets or local garden stores, here’s a guide from Domain if you want specifics.
Sell or giveaway old pieces you don’t want anymore
Lastly, please don’t throw your old furniture into the street to be put into landfill if it’s salvageable. Some of the best pieces of furniture I’ve got are from kind people that have given them to me for free.
People move a lot and furniture can’t always be taken, so if you need to get rid of something carefully consider if someone else can use it, or if it can be up cycled. It takes a few minutes to put something online for free or give it a charity (if it’s in good condition!).
