Importance of having nurturing Indoor Plants for your house
Gardening is one of the purest of human pleasures. Living in concrete, urban jungles make us forget the most basic pleasures of our existence. City dwellers think plants require abundant space and time. Some people think they do not have a green thumb and resist growing anything. Others feel they do not have adequate knowledge to bring plants home.
The good news is that plants can grow! Different kinds of plants can grow in different kinds of environments. There is a plethora of plants that can stand up to the harshest of conditions. Even if you live in a cubicle with nearly no natural light, plants can thrive. All they need is some love and water of course. There are various reasons to nurture plants within an enclosed space.
They Encourage Optimistic Behaviour– Studies have proven that the beauty of plants makes people feel content. Culturally plants are known to have a strong spiritual connection. They are used in ceremonies such as weddings and funerals as their presence is equated to wellbeing.
Needless to say that indoor plants make a house look refreshing leading to positive behavior. Patients in hospitals have a greater chance of recovery if their rooms face a garden. Foliage creates optimism according to experts elevating the spirit and mood of people.
They Reduce background sound – Buildings are more than just a roof over your head. They provide a sense of security and belonging. They also emit a sense of peace and calmness. But sometimes when buildings are not designed accurately they can create a lot of noise clutter. Sound of all kinds echo- children crying, people taking on phones, the sound of traffic etc. Plants absorb sound reducing the noise pollution. They are a brilliant, inexpensive resource to use for internal acoustic solutions. Thus they are used to reduce the ambient sound so that you can find serenity in the cacophony of sounds. Noise reduction through plants is based on three factors.
They add freshness: Plants are a breath of fresh air — literally and figuratively. They are the easiest and most cost-effective way to bring freshness to your home. Put a plant in your living room, this will absorb any foul smell or a bad odor. It helps you to get rid of any artificial packed fresheners, which are not eco-friendly and far more expensive than plants.
They uplift the interior design: Interior designers usually plan indoor plants within the framework of their design, from a lighting and maintenance perspective. They use plants to enhance the entire look of their design making it more inviting. We end up buying homes, which are like white cubed boxes. Plants change the dynamics of a house and add that extra layers to the canvas which creates a character to space.
They produce a better quality of air: Not only do plants take in carbon dioxide and give out oxygen, but they also absorb toxins and improve the quality of indoor air. People in modern and industrialized cities spend most of their time in airtight buildings. These structures require less heating, ventilating and air conditioning but can be hazardous to humans due to the accumulation of particulate matter and volatile organic compounds from furniture, paints, carpets and office equipment. Plants can absorb many of these toxins and clean up the air but very little is known about them. Some plants give out oxygen even at night too, in case you want to embellish your bedroom.
There is a range of indoor plants that require less sunlight, less water and nearly no maintenance. Succulents, bamboos, money plants and palms are great choices. Others such as dracaena, spider plant, snake plant and weeping fig are perfect for indoor spaces.
Whether you opt for a small terrarium on your center table or a towering palm holding fort the décor of your living room, indoor plants can change the entire vibe and energy of your home. It is a proven fact that a small blossom in your house can enhance the quality of your life. Bring a plant home and see for yourself.
