During the winter months, indoor plants can help you get your nature fix until spring returns. January 10 is Houseplant Appreciation Day, so let’s take a moment to recall some benefits of the plants you keep inside your home or that you’ve brought indoors for the season.
They look great.
Indoor plants make great décor. Whether they are flowering plants like poinsettia or cyclamen, hardy succulents, or leafy green trees, plants can make your house look stylish.
They help you relax.
Studies show that having plants in your home can have a soothing effect. Multiple studies demonstrate that seeing plants helps reduce stress and has a calming effect. They can help with acoustics too: Put enough plants in a room, and they can have a similar effect to installing carpet!
They help you focus.
Looking to hunker down and get some work done? Make sure there’s a plant or two in your work area. People working with plants around were shown to have increased productivity, improved memory retention, and better concentration.
We recommend that you use that improved focus to contact Camelot Design now to make landscape plans and to get on the schedule for the warm weather months.
So while you’re waiting for spring, why not give some love to the plants inside? They’ll love you right back.
