Houseplants can brighten your mood – and home!

All of us are feeling a little bleh – the weather, the virus, simply just the cooler season. It’s easy to feel down at this time of year. One thing that can boost your spirit at least a little bit is bringing some houseplants into your home.

Indoor plants are very beneficial. They not only provide beauty, but they also are a health benefit as they filter the air in your home. Now, I’m absolutely not saying to fill your entire home with plants from floor to ceiling (that would be a tripping hazard!). But, increasing the plants in your home not only add that extra oxygen boost but also add a gorgeous look in just about every room in your home.

So, here are some ideas of how you can add some plants to your home. Let’s start with your kitchen. Create a little “potted garden” on a windowsill in your kitchen, planting some of your favorite herbs. The smell will be fantastic, and the look will be a gorgeous accent!

In your living room, have a taller plant like a palm tree. They love moderately lit spaces, and look beautiful as they accent that dreary corner.

Your bedroom can even have some greenery. Look for an ivy plant, or a lower light plant, if you tend to not have much daylight coming in your bedroom windows. Succulents can do very well in this space too!

Don’t forget your bathroom! Look for plants that can tolerate that higher moisture level. Just as a hint, begonias do extremely well in a bathroom! And they look stunning!

With these absolutely weird times, don’t forget to have that little boost into your home office. There are many plants you can have in that special space. Check out the African violet or the snake plant.
