There’s nothing better than bringing the outside in to add color, freshness and an element of nature to your home. There are benefits to adding a mix of houseplants to any room of your house.
Plant Perks include:
A sense of nature: You know that feeling of being in nature that helps reduce stress and boost your well-being? You can bring that into your home with plants. The visual beauty of greenery inside can elevate your mood on a daily basis.
Air effects: Having houseplants has been shown to improve air quality by reducing levels of carbon dioxide, increasing humidity and cutting back on airborne dust levels.
Creating connections: There is a reward to caring for green friends and watching them thrive and flourish. It has been shown that these type of connections can cut back on feelings of loneliness and depression.
Breath of fresh air: Plants can invigorate and add fragrance to your home. For example, eucalyptus, mint or plumeria are good choices.
Cooking time: A variety of herbs can easily be grown indoors offering not only a great scent to your kitchen but also a fresh ingredient to all of your favorite dishes. Some examples of easy herbs to grow are chives, oregano, thyme, basil, and parsley. Fresh herbs can add a depth of flavor to any dish.
When adding a green element to your place, keep in mind these additional thoughts:
Best fit: When selecting a plant for a particular room, make sure that you are choosing one that fits the available light in the room so that the plant can truly thrive. There is nothing sadder than a brown houseplant!
Pet consideration: If you have a furry friend, make sure you research which varieties are safe for pets or can be toxic if they are accidentally digested.
Allergy awareness: If someone in your home has allergies, plants can be helpful or hurtful, depending on the types of allergies. Those with mold allergies may face worsening symptoms as disturbed soil can be a source of mold dispersion.
