Why You Should Add Houseplants To Your Decor

Everyday household products, including air fresheners, emit a lot of toxins and chemicals throughout your home. The air inside your home could also become contaminated with pollen, bacteria, and even mold.

According to a NASA study, one way you can improve your indoor air quality is by adding houseplants. Not only do they look great as part of your decor, but they also help reduce indoor pollutants.

Which Houseplants Should I Add in My Home?

Spider Plant

Otherwise known as Chlorophytum, the spider plant helps filter carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, and xylene (common products found in leather and rubber).

This plant is also pet-friendly and one of the easiest to take care of (so if you don’t have a “green thumb” don’t worry!).

Chinese Evergreen

If you don’t get much natural sunlight in your home, we definitely suggest buying a Chinese Evergreen plant. It thrives in low light conditions and low humidity.

Gerbera Daisy

This plant is not only a sight for sore eyes, but it’s also a natural purifier that removes benzene. They also release oxygen overnight, helping you snooze better.

Areca Palm

Areca palms remove toxins and release moisture into your air. Unlike a Chinese Evergreen, this plant needs a lot of sunlight and water to survive.
