Make Plants a Must-Have in your Space to Improve Health and Well Being

The Covid-19 pandemic, which first struck India in 2020, has forever changed the way we live our lives. Homes have become an integral part of our daily routine, as we work, exercise, spend leisure time and rest, all in the confines of our homes. Therefore, creating indoor spaces that facilitate the health and well-being of its occupants becomes even more important.

 

Research has proven that indoor plants enhance mood, and happiness and provide a sense of holistic wellness. Adding a plant or a vertical garden or moss wall to your ambience instantly enhances the quality of the environment, while also providing the necessary air purification.

 

The Need for Air Purification in Modern Times

In the past few years, buildings, and residential layouts have very often incorporated low-cost, low-maintenance materials instead of natural products. These recently built or refurbished buildings contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Moreover, in closed and air condition spaces, the same air is recycled within the building, which leads to Sick Building Syndrome. Since plants remove carbon dioxide from the air and in turn, emit oxygen, plantscaping can greatly enhance the indoor air quality of buildings.

 

Plantscapes are Good for Mental and Physical Wellness

Plants also help reduce dust particles and bolster cleanliness within an indoor space. A 1996 research found that plants can reduce dust on horizontal spaces by as much as 20%. A cleaner, healthier environment ultimately results in reduced ailments and health concerns. Well-designed plantscapes also ensure the mental well-being of its occupants.

 

The Need to Choose your Plants Carefully

While plants are a great addition to an indoor space, it is important to select the right combination of plants that can remove ambient toxins, and artistically place them within the space to suit its lighting and watering requirements. An ideal mix of varieties will ensure a more balanced breathing environment.
