Transform Your Home into a Haven of Health and Happiness: Discover the Astonishing Benefits of Indoor Plants!
Plants are a wonderful addition to any home, bringing not only aesthetic benefits but also a range of health and therapeutic benefits that you may not have considered. At Iron Ivy, we believe that plants are an essential part of home decor, and we're here to help you achieve that clean, green home feeling. So here's three big reasons why plants are a beneficial to have around.
One of the most well-known benefits of having plants in your home is the positive impact they can have on your mental and emotional wellbeing. Studies have shown that being around plants can reduce stress and anxiety levels, as well as boost mood and overall happiness. Taking a moment of your day to check in and observe how your plant has grown can offer an opportunity of calmness, a chance to check in with yourself. Watering plants can be an act of meditation and self care that our busy lives so often lack. Whether you're sitting in a room surrounded by greenery, or simply glancing at a plant as you work, the presence of plants has a calming and restorative effect that can help you to feel more relaxed and centred.
In addition to their emotional benefits, plants can also have a positive impact on your physical health. Some plants, such as Spider plants, Snake plants and Peace Lilies, are known for their air-purifying properties, helping to remove harmful pollutants from the air in your home. This can be especially beneficial for those who suffer from allergies or respiratory issues, helping to keep the air in your home clean and healthy.
They're pleasing to the eye
When it comes to home decor, plants offer a wealth of aesthetic benefits. Whether you choose to display them in plant hangers, on shelves, or on your windowsill, plants can help to bring life and color to your space. They can also be used to create a natural division between different areas in your home, helping to define the different zones and create a more harmonious and organized space.
Plants are also an excellent way to add texture and interest to your home decor. With so many different types and varieties to choose from, you can easily find plants that complement your personal style and the look and feel of your space. Whether you prefer bold and colourful blooms, splashy white variegation, delicate and fern-like foliage, or sculptural climbing plants, there's a plant to suit every taste and preference and every experience level.
Another benefit of having plants in your surroundings is that they can help to create a more relaxing and peaceful environment.
Research has shown that looking at nature and even just looking at the colour green can reduce the symptoms of stress, including lowering blood pressure and muscle tension, making your home or office a more relaxing and rejuvenating space to be in. Whether you're looking to create a peaceful retreat in your bedroom, a moment of zen at work or a calming atmosphere in your living room, plants are an excellent way to help you achieve your goal.
Need I say more? Having plants as part of your home decor can bring a range of benefits, from the emotional and therapeutic to the aesthetic and practical. They can help to create a more relaxed and peaceful environment, improve your health, and bring life and colour to your home. So why wait? Start adding some greenery to your space today, get creative with it and enjoy all the benefits that plants have to offer.
