Benefits of Adding Plants and Greenery to Your Space

September 27, 2017

In many homes plants and greenery are regular staples. Of course for decorating rooms they can be great. But by keeping plant life around your home you can actually enjoy a lot of other benefits. From noise control to cleaner air houseplants have many advantages. Here is how to go about adding more plant life indoors and some of their specific benefits.

Benefits of Adding Plants and Greenery to Your Space

 

Health Benefits

Plants can help to purify the air in your home because they absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Houseplants can take away explosive unprocessed compounds like those that come from vinyl, cigarette smoke, smells from food items, and other regular household items. For certain conditions plants can speed healing time, according to studies. They also have a variety of other health benefits and can also reduce stress, and sharpen focus.

Practical Benefits

To reduce noise place plants strategically in a home or office. To quieten noise and make your home a more calm and peaceful place leafy greens, in particular, can help. If using plants for this purpose a good rule of thumb is to have about one plant for every 100 square feet of space. This could be a particularly useful strategy for those who live in townhomes or apartment buildings.

Visual Benefits

The visual impact is the most obvious benefit of having plants around your home. Simpler green plants can help a room look more polished or cleaner, and plants with flowers can bring colour around your home. They can even help you cover up unsightly cords running along your floors and blemishes on your walls.

Getting started

Houseplants have a variety of benefits and if you are wondering how to add them to your space, we show you how. To find the right plants that will fit into your home do some research. If you want plants that can be maintained without much hassle look for such plants that need less care. Certain plants need more water or sunlight than others. If you are looking for indoor plants choose plants that require less sunlight. And if you are a busy bee choose plants that do not require daily watering. You can place plants on side tables, counters or bookshelves.

Now, head to your nursery and bring home some greenery. A plant-filled home has many benefits. Enjoy them.
