As dedicated homeowners, we love sprucing up the different areas at home. It doesn't matter even if we only bought a small decor or a budget-friendly essential—what matters is it's a functional piece that can improve the space.

If you love waking up to relaxing container or indoor garden as much as we do, we suggest these five essentials that can liven up your space and lighten up your mood:

Achieve an industrial vibe by repotting your succulents and cacti into these planters. You can even place it on your kitchen countertop to liven up a dull corner.

Speaking of an industrial look, pair those cute planters with this concrete flower pot. Aside from using it in the garden, you can also use it to display flowers in the living area.

Our plants need just the right amount of tender loving care. Maintain your plants and flowers using a stylish sprayer! This piece can also serve as decor when not in use.

Achieve a rustic look in your garden, living area, or dining room with this charming two-tone copper glass vase. Invest in at least three of these to complete a captivating centerpiece.
