Pros To Having Plants In The Bedroom.

Bedroom plants can do more than just make your shelves look brighter. They can also boost your mood, enhance your creativity, reduce your stress levels, increase your productivity, naturally filter air pollutants, and much more.

Many of us don’t realize how important air quality is. Oftentimes the insulation, paint, and furniture in our homes can pollute our indoor air with toxins like formaldehyde and benzene. To help purify the air in your home, consider adding plants. Plants can absorb harmful gases through the pores in their leaves, filtering and cleaning the air you breathe every day.

Not only do bedroom plants have many health benefits, but they also add a nice touch of decor and bright energy to any indoor space. If you’re looking to add some greenery to your room, below are 10 of the best plants to keep in the bedroom.

The Benefits of Bedroom Plants

One of the greatest benefits of keeping plants in the bedroom is that they have the ability to improve indoor air quality. Dry indoor air is blamed for a host of ailments like respiratory problems, sore throats, colds, and even breakouts. Indoor plants help to maintain, and in some cases increase, humidity levels by emitting water vapor during transpiration. And in addition to emitting oxygen and humidity — plants produce negative ions, similar to many fancy air-purifying machines. The negative ions attach themselves to, and effectively remove, any particles in the air such as dust, mold spores, bacteria, and allergens.

The presence of negative ions has also been shown to increase psychological health, productivity, and overall well-being. Some common houseplants even take it a step further in air quality control, naturally filtering indoor air pollutants like formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, toluene, and benzene.

One of the most under-appreciated benefits of houseplants is the calming effect they have — making them the perfect addition to your sleep space. Although there’s no scientific evidence that a houseplant can increase your quantity of sleep, they can turn your bedroom into a zen den to help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. If you’re in the market for some new bedroom plants, make sure to match your potted plants to your bedding for an even sleeker sleep space.
