5 Benefits of Adding Interior Plants


Interior Plants can offer a wide variety of benefits that extend far beyond their beauty. Interior plants can actually help to improve your indoor air quality! Here are 5 benefits of adding interior plants to your decor. 

1. Improve Indoor Air Quality
Many have heard that adding houseplants to your decor can help to improve the quality of your indoor air by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide and foreign particulates in the air. Your plants process the carbon dioxide into oxygen, known as photosynthesis, and release it back into your home. But that's not all! The soil that your plant is in contains microorganisms. These microbes will also provide a beneficial cleaning effect for your home or office. 

2. Reduce Background Noise
For decades, plants have been used outdoors to reduce road and background noise for adjacent neighborhoods. In the same fashion, interior plants can be used to reduce the background noise levels indoors as well! 

3. Reduce Stress
Another great benefit of adding interior plants to your decor is the stress relief they can provide. Adding greenery to your decor can create a feeling of well-being and enjoy the natural calming effect houseplants are known for. 

4. Increase Indoor Humidity
As plants breathe, and during the photosynthetic process, they release moisture vapor into the air around them. By placing several houseplants together, you can ultimately add more humidity to any room. By increasing the humidity indoors, you can keep potential issues like dry skin, coughs and sore throats, colds, and other respiratory distresses at bay.

5. Improve Overall Health
There have been countless studies that show that by adding interior plants to your decor, you can help to improve your overall health. From increased happiness to lower blood pressure, the benefits of interior plants help us to gain a general feeling of optimism and well-being.
