Want to transform your bathroom into a space of lush greenery and good energy all round? Summer is just around the corner- and one of the best ways to celebrate the heat is to bring in some of the greenery from outdoors. Though they’re a simple addition, plants overhaul your entire room into something completely beautiful, and wonderfully zen. However, plants are more than just a simple decorative touch. In this week’s article, we’ll be running through four major ways plants will change your bathroom space forever.
You’ll breathe easier
Plants simply bring in extra oxygen to your house. Through the process of photosynthesis, plants absorb the carbon dioxide from us and release oxygen in return. This makes it easier for us to breathe.
Increase humidity levels
Plants actually release up to 97% of the water they absorb, which raises the level of humidity in their environment- think lush jungle. With this, you won’t need the services of a humidifier, as your plants will neutralise the drying effects of air conditioning and heating.
Remove airborne contaminants
Research has proven that plants remove the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the air around us. This include benzene, trichloroethylene and formaldehyde, and are commonly found in paints, printed materials and furnishings.
Boost your health and wellbeing
No, you’re not imagining things- having plants around really can help to relieve stress and anxiety! They can also improve concentration and memory abilities, while also stimulating greater creativity. Their ability to increase humidity is also linked to alleviating symptoms of depression, along with reducing cold symptoms such as fatigue, headaches and sore throats.
Plants are so much more than a fancy touch to your bathroom. As living organisms, they have positive effects on our physical and mental wellbeing.
