Design Guide: Plants for Your Home

Design Guide: Plants for Your Home

Adding plants to your interior design not only looks beautiful but it actually has an array wellness benefits as well. Studies have shown that indoor plants:

 

  • Boost mood, productivity, focus, and creativity
  • Reduce stress and fatigue
  • Freshens the air by absorbing toxins, increasing humidity and producing oxygen
  • Give privacy and reduce noise levels

 

That being said, not everyone naturally has a green thumb or big windows in every room. It can be hard to decide on what plants would be best for your home or apartment. This guide will take a closer look at plants that thrive in an indoor environment and are easy to take care of.

Snake Plant

This tropical plant has upright slithering leaves with unique banding patterns that resemble the skin of a snake — hence the name. It’s well adapted for an indoor setting because it naturally grows in a drought-filled environment.

 

Pothos

 

 

Pothos is the perfect plant for anyone with a busy schedule or less than ideal plant conditions. This vining plant can withstand long periods of neglect and does not need much light to grow.

Rubber Plant

 

A popular houseplant, the rubber plant has thick upright stems with glossy, oversized leaves that can store water for weeks. They also prefer to be in moderate light and come in a variety of different sizes.

ZZ Plant

Also known at The Fortune Tree, the ZZ plant makes a great housewarming gift for the plant lover in your life. They are extremely low maintenance, dry-tolerant, and thrive in a low-light environment.

 All of these plants can add natural beauty to your home.
