Why Every Home Needs More Houseplants
When people think about houseplants, they usually only consider their beauty and rarity. However, indoor plants can do so much more than just add to the ambiance – they can improve our health and happiness too. Houseplants are an easy way to boost air quality in your home. From helping you combat seasonal allergies to increasing your overall feeling of wellbeing, houseplants can improve your life in ways you never expected. It doesn’t really matter whether you have a green thumb or not. Indoor plants will help you create a beautiful and stylish living space that helps to reduce stress, clears your mind, and makes it easier to concentrate.
Boost your indoor air quality
Your home is your safe haven—here, you can unwind and take a break from your busy life to enjoy some peace and quiet. Do you know what will help you relax the most? Air purifying houseplants. They’re affordable, practical, and they can even catch air pollutants before they enter our lungs. NASA studies have shown that houseplants can filter out VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and other indoor air pollutants which can trigger allergies, headaches, fatigue and illness. A few little plants can really go a long way. They have all kinds of health benefits, from fighting off colds to increasing the air quality in your home and much more.
The air quality in your home could be improved by up to 25% if you have just a single plant. Air pollutants such as volatile organic compounds, carbon monoxide, or dust particles don’t just sting your eyes and make you sneeze - they can cause serious health problems over time so it’s a good idea to minimise this with indoor plants.
Your mental wellbeing comes first
The presence of indoor plants adds a certain comfort to your surroundings. It's hard to believe how powerful and beneficial plants can be for your mental and physical health. They can increase productivity and make our living areas easier to breathe in, while providing vital benefits to everyone at home.
As we spend more time indoors, whether at work or at home, indoor plants have become the perfect way to bring new life to spaces that may otherwise feel bland. They’re great for increasing productivity, helping you relax when you need a break, and making sure that we know what’s going on around us. Sometimes all you really need in life is a little bit of greenery. Houseplants will help make you happy and just like us, the humans who care for them, they too will grow with you. You’ll be amazed at how something you take for granted can give you so much satisfaction.
There’s a huge variety of indoor plants available at Cheeky Plant Co. that are suitable to whatever situation you’re in, whether you’re a beginner to plants, need plants that can survive in low light rooms or even require pet-friendly plants for your home.
Make your home more stylish
It may be surprising to hear, but plants have a big impact on the overall look of your home. Many people only think about flower arrangements when it comes to plants, but the truth is they play an even bigger part than that and they are incredibly easy to care for!
Houseplants are a great way to bring nature indoors. By adding a bit of greenery into our homes, indoor plants also serve as our close connection with nature. They make a great addition as home décor pieces for living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms in all sorts of homes and can be easily paired with different types of furniture. Plants are timeless, stylish and can be used to make bold statements in your home interior. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t make the most out of your home by bringing in a unique, elegant and relaxing atmosphere with indoor plants. Start by buying individual plants and build up your collection or purchase an indoor plant starter pack. If you have friends or family who don't have many or any plants in their home, you can probably get them a plant gift box as a present.
