Indoor gardens bring the outdoors in, making the room more tranquil while purifying the air. Easy to create and enjoyable to view, indoor gardens bring nature indoors for optimal living conditions.
Research indicates that spending time outside can help relieve stress. This phenomenon, called biophilia, includes natural elements like air, water, weather patterns, plants and even scent.
Add plants to your home for a green, life-giving element that improves air quality while being visually appealing and providing health benefits that may help alleviate stress levels.
Plants come in all shapes and sizes; from an individual potted herb to an entire collection adorning multiple rooms. If you want something beyond potted plants, aquaponic systems offer another alternative: fish tanks full of live fish provide food to the plants while their waste acts as fertilizer for future growth.
Plants can create beautiful displays that act as focal points in any room, and when combined can become stunning centerpieces. Choose plants based on their light and care requirements for optimal results – for instance if your north-facing window receives low light consider low-light succulents and cacti as low maintenance options; add fragrance with lavender and eucalyptus scents for enhanced relaxation, or experiment with propagation as many plants can easily grow from cuttings or seeds.
Green may be the iconic hue associated with plants, but you don’t have to settle for just green hues when designing an indoor garden. Explore a spectrum of leaf colors, blooms and fruit to bring beautiful shades into your home. If you need help matching up your indoor garden with your living room decor or decor scheme, use the color wheel as a source of guidance; complementary hues create tension when used together while monochromatic schemes use lighter or darker variations of one hue.
An elegant palette of nature-inspired tones can provide the eye with restful refuge, creating a sense of balance. Jotun’s “Stories” collection offers several shades that evoke peaceful forests, serene lakes, and snowcapped mountains – providing soothing colors with which to unwind after an exhausting day at work or school.
Back to Nature S340-4 paint will bring an earthy charm to any back patio, easily blending with its surroundings and adding a garden-esque atmosphere. Use white window and door trim as accents for maximum effect.
Home owners can bring natural elements into their living spaces through various elements from nature. This doesn’t only include materials like natural wood and air quality; fire, weather patterns and more can also be brought inside via skylights, mirrors or sheer drapes which bring in light from outside to illuminate a room – creating an authentic indoor space!
Bring fresh plants and flowers into the home is another way to add beauty and improve air quality. There are numerous houseplant options, from lemon trees and cacti to bamboo palms and more that you can grow as houseplants.
Keep the humidity level consistent in your home for optimal plant growth. If your plants don’t receive enough humidity, try placing a tray of water filled with rocks or sand to increase surface area for evaporation or using a humidifier – there are even apps that play nature sounds to create an ambiance more natural in your space.
As much as we may associate nature with plants, there are other ways of bringing it into the home that are just as effective for decluttering your mind and connecting with nature. Natural materials, weather elements and sounds can all provide ways of reconnecting with it and relaxing our minds – water features and aquariums can be particularly soothing due to their flowing or bubbling water sounds; for instance. You could try using Insight Timer app with nature-inspired meditations or listening to outdoor sounds such as raindrops or ocean waves for added relaxation when coming home after work hours – helping you feel refreshed and relaxed when coming home after long days at work!
