Do you ever find yourself longing for the great outdoors, but you don’t want to leave the comfort of your home? Well, what if we told you that you could bring the outdoors in with modern houseplants and living technology?
Let’s dive in and discover how you can incorporate modern houseplants and living technology into your home
Benefits of Modern Houseplants
Modern houseplants are not only aesthetically pleasing, but they also regulate humidity levels in your home too. Plants are natural air filters, and they release moisture through transpiration.
Here are some of the benefits of having modern houseplants in your space.
Air Purification and Humidity Regulation
Houseplants remove formaldehyde, benzene, and trichloroethylene from the air. These toxins can be found in furniture, cleaning products, and synthetic materials. When these chemicals are present in the air, they can cause headaches, eye irritation, and respiratory problems.
Dry air can cause dry skin, respiratory irritation, and colds or flu. Houseplants keep humidity levels regulated — enough to prevent such health problems.
It has been proven that houseplants can improve both physical and mental health. For instance, houseplants reduce symptoms of allergies and asthma. They have also been shown to reduce stress levels and improve mood.
One study even found that patients in hospital rooms with plants had lower blood pressure and reported less pain and fatigue than those without plants. You can create a healthier living environment that promotes overall well-being just by adding a houseplant.
Mood and Stress Reduction
Being in nature or even just looking at natural scenes can have a calming effect on the mind. Adding houseplants can give you similar benefits as being in nature. One study found that people who spent time in a room with plants reported feeling more relaxed and comfortable than those in a room without.
The Power of Living Technology
Modern houseplants can also be integrated with living technology to create an even more advanced and sustainable living environment. Companies like AlgenAir have developed organic purifiers that have the power of 25 real plants in one small item.
The organic purifiers regulate humidity levels and provide insulation, all while creating a stunning visual display. Similarly, some companies have now developed smart planters that can monitor soil moisture levels, adjust lighting, and even send notifications to your phone when your plant needs attention.
Living technology is indeed a great innovation for humankind that will take us further down the line of environmental preservation.
Interior Design With Houseplants
Houseplants add color, texture, and visual interest to a room — all while creating a space that feels more inviting and peaceful.
When you’re choosing houseplants for your home, keep lighting, temperature, and humidity levels in mind. You should also think about the size and scale of the plants and how they will fit into your overall interior theme.
Once you have selected your plants, arrange them in a variety of ways to create a visually stunning display. For example, you can group plants of different sizes and shapes, or use hanging plants to add height and interest to a room.
Houseplants are an easy and effective way to transform any living space into a beautiful, functional oasis, while technology brings restorative benefits to the natural world indoors. Why not start today? With AlgenAir’s aerium, there’s a whole world of green possibilities waiting for you.
