Why You Need House Plants

One of the quickest easiest ways to decorate or uplift the energy in your space is to add plants. House plants do not just add to your decor aesthetic, they also have physical and psychological affects as well!

Top 5 Reasons Why You Need House Plants

1. Plants are Functional

There are many ways in which having plants in your home can be useful. For starters, you can eat them! As you know there are many edible pants. Growing herbs or other produce indoors is easier than you may think and can provide you with your favorite herb or vegetables year round. Another functional use is privacy.

Real or faux, plants can be used to give you privacy in your living space. You can achieve this by placing plants in front of windows, putting tall or hanging plants on a balcony, or get creative and use them a room divider.

Did you know plants can naturally sound proof?

Practically all of the parts of a plant can absorb sound. This is very helpful if you live in an apartment, condo, or townhouse. Keep in mind this is not going to completely quiet the sound of the upstairs tenet

who only walks on their heels.

2. Natural Air Purifier

We all know that plants turn the carbon dioxide we exhaleI into oxygen, but that process also remove toxins from the air. Breathing clean air is very important for our health. By adding

more plants to your space you may lower the amount air pollutants and potentially lesson your possibility for diseases such as lung cancer, heart disease, or asthma (I am not a doctor or a scientist this is information you can google to fact check!) A few plants that are great for purifying the air are snake plants, spider plants, peace lilies, and areca palm.

3. Boosts Mood

In the colder months a lot of people suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder. The cold, shorter days, and longer nights can be taxing. Plants that flower, have bright colors, or delectable scents are a great choice to add to your home to brighten your space! Some plants to consider are winter jasmine, gardenias, and drunken gnome air plant.

4. Reduces Stress

Plants can reduce stress through scent and air purification. Adding plants such as lavender or eucalyptus, which are proven to reduce stress, will fill your space with a relaxing aroma. You can also use these plants dried.

5. Great Decor

Lastly plants make great home decor. Plants bring life into any space by adding the perfect touch to any room and they match any color or style. In Feng Shui placing plants in different areas of your home can boost positive energy in various aspects of your life. If you are not the best at taking care of plants you can opt for faux plants. This way you have the visual benefits of the plant without having to try and keep them alive.
