Adding houseplants to your home or office is a great way to boost decor and bring greenery indoors. From ferns to succulents, many houseplants make brilliant gifts and can even help to improve mental and physical health! Plants release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide, this not only improves air quality but can help to absorb harmful toxins. Research from NASA says that houseplants can remove up to 87% of air toxins (such as mold) in 24 hours.

Create a refuge from the outside world by bringing houseplants indoors. Interior landscaping can provide a pleasant and relaxing environment. Adding a plant to your desk or office can help to improve focus and productivity. In some studies, it has been shown that large plants (or groupings of plants) can absorb and soften background noise, making the space more calm.

The Top 5 Benefits of Houseplants are:

  1. Reduces carbon monoxide levels
  2. Increases humidity
  3. Reduces levels of some pollutants and toxins
  4. Reduces airborne dust
  5. Keeps air temperatures down

Whether you choose to hang them from the ceiling, place them on a table, or completely fill the room with them – houseplants are sure to become a welcome addition to your home.
