We have already shown here that the way of living in the future will privilege nature and well-being. Therefore, home plants play a key role in the decoration of a space. In addition to colors, they bring life and make everything more harmonious.
The green color – and its various shades – is responsible for bringing tranquility, balance, lightness, joy, and warmth to the home. And certainly, the most charming way to bring color indoors is to include plants in the space.
Today, there are numerous species that adapt well to the internal spaces. And there is no rule about the best place: the plants can be in the bedroom, living room and even bathroom. Before choosing, check the light, temperature, and humidity conditions of each room. Invest in vases and cachepôs to make up the decoration and bring nature into the house.
To get a better result for this proposal, it is necessary to find out which type of species suits your decorating style the most. Note, also, which will better adapt to the internal area of the property. Some species do not need much light to survive, such as the Lady Palm, Swiss cheese plant, Bromelia, Arrowhead plant, and maranta prayer plant.
Your lifestyle will also help determine the most suitable plants. If the routine is very hectic, it is worth looking for plants that require little care, such as cacti and succulents. If biophilia is part of your daily life, and taking care of plants has become a pleasurable and relaxing activity, you can invest in the species you like the most. Caring for plants is much more than the decoration of space: it’s a rewarding activity.
Bring the plants indoors
Plants are democratic and there are no rules on which are the most beautiful, or better. In fact, for them to develop well indoors, it is only necessary to check the incidence of light and moisture in place. The same goes for the need for watering.
To make the décor more interesting, try combining plants with different types of leaves and shapes. The contrast between the colors and textures of the leaves will also create effects. Come up with ideas to put them in the decoration: valley vases, pendants, on shelves, cachepots on the floor. There are countless possibilities. In addition, you can adjust the size of your space.
If you have a balcony available, take the opportunity to place flowers and plants there as well. Notice the size of the space, and if there is enough incidence of sun and ventilation. On small balconies, choose a suspended garden. The best types of floor porch plants are: Common Ivy, Marantas, Radiator plants, Succulents, Spranger’s asparagus, Kaizuka, Podocarpo, and Begonias.
Plants are synonymous with health
According to NASA, having plants indoors can improve residents’ health, mainly because of the species’ ability to filter pollutants. Some plants can absorb the particles more efficiently, as well as chrysanthemum, peace lily, dumbcane, gerbera, snake plant, and laceleaf. Bet on them when decorating indoors.
The agency also suggests that people have about 15 plants in vases of at least 15 centimeters inside the house. If you live in a small apartment or prefer larger plants, you do not need to have as many species to enjoy the same air cleaning power. Plants also collaborate with other health issues:
- Common cold: increase moisture levels and reduce dust, reducing cold-related diseases by more than 30%.
- Drowsiness: excess carbon dioxide can raise drowsiness levels. During photosynthesis, plants remove CO2 from the air.
- Stress: plants help in the feeling of well-being, bring calm and optimism. In addition, taking care of plants can reduce blood pressure due to their stress-relieving nature.
- Insomnia: some species, such as daisies and gerberas, release oxygen at night. Try placing them near your bed for extra oxygen, which will help in your sleep.
