Since the beginning of time things have come and gone out of fashion. Indoor plants are now coming back into fashion and in a big way. Not only are we seeing them being used to dress up the house, they are now being used indoors for very practical reasons.
The English love for indoor plants started during the Victorian times, when the fashion for indoor plants meant conservatories became popular as places to take tea and grow the delicate and rare plants. During the 1970’s, no stylish house was without house plants in almost every room. Indoor plants are now very much a part of home decor again and can be used in a variety of ways such as classy finishing touches to rooms to bring life to your home.
Large plants can make a striking statement while smaller plants around the home, especially in the bathroom can add lovely touches of green and texture. Houseplants in the bathroom is an excellent idea to make this space an even far more refreshing area. A common reason that people claim they cannot have an indoor plant in their home is the plant maintenance but most of the indoor plants are of low-maintenance. They are generally very slow growing and do not require much watering and trimming.
Apart from the lively environment, indoor plants can provide a wide range of health and well-being benefits by cleaning the air of impurities turning them into oxygen. In fact, having just one indoor plant in a room can remove up to 87% of toxins in that space. The presence of clean, oxygenated air in your home can have the benefit of increased productivity and alertness.
Add a stylish touch to your home with a plant in your living room, bathroom or even some fresh herbs planted up on your sunny kitchen window and it will definitely make you feel good.
