Benefits of Indoor Plants

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it's essential to take a moment to smell the roses. Whether outdoors or in, taking some time to be around nature is necessary. Have you ever considered adding some nature indoors? Indoor plants are a fantastic way to add a touch of colour and life to any room - not to mention all the benefits that come with them.

From releasing stress-relieving oxygen, improving air quality, or just making a home look more inviting and stylish, there are countless reasons why having houseplants is an absolute must for homemakers in Abu Dhabi - a stunning yet drier climate than most cities. Today, we'll be exploring these same benefits! So let’s dive straight in.

Beautifies Any Home

Sometimes, all a room needs is a little green peep. Indoor plants are a great way to bring life into your home and get back in touch with nature. Decorating with houseplants is easy and fun - they come in various shapes, sizes, colours, and textures. Try adding multiple small ones to shelves or tables for a chic look, or opt for larger statement pieces like tropical palms or fiddle leaf figs to make a bolder statement. You can also play around with air plants or cut blooms for a simple DIY.

This small addition can make a world of difference. Indoor plants can quickly transform any room into a more appealing space filled with life and freshness. It can even change the whole tone of your apartment - see how a lovely Aloe Vera plant or a gorgeous Peace Lily can make any room in your home more charming.

Boosts Mental Health

Not only do indoor plants make your space look delightful, but they also provide numerous health benefits. Research shows that being around plants can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression while improving concentration, creativity, productivity, and overall emotional well-being!

If you feel under the weather, simply being in the presence of indoor plants can reap plenty of benefits. Make sure to buy yourself a gorgeous indoor plant and take a moment to meditate next to it each morning for a serene start to the day.

Additionally, putting in time and effort to care for a plant can be therapeutic. Therapists are now more commonly "prescribing" potted indoor plants - a modern version of what was known as horticultural therapy. Tending to and caring for plants gives a person a sense of satisfaction, while keeping them busy and productive.

Improves Indoor Air

Plants can also help you breathe easier by cleaning the air of pollutants like carbon dioxide, formaldehyde, and benzene. Studies show that they work as natural air purifiers - using their leaves to absorb toxins from the air inside your home. Many common houseplants are particularly effective at removing these harmful toxins from the environment. Examples include spider plants, ferns, and aloe vera plants.

Additionally, indoor plants can help with airborne triggered allergies by trapping pollutants and reducing their concentration in the air. Studies have also shown that keeping houseplants around can reduce fatigue and dry skin while increasing humidity levels in your home - making it feel more comfortable overall! With a healthy home comes a healthy mind and body. There's nothing better than adding a beautiful yet simple plant that can do so much for you.
