Green Plants A Refreshing Part of Our Lives
ISSUE 1, CORPORATE
It is normal when our minds gravitate towards items like furniture, fittings, space, and colors when it comes to our house decoration. It doesn’t matter what colour scheme you have going on, plants will always work with it and although being generally green, they don’t conflict with other colours.
If you are worried of bold colours and lean towards a more neutral colour palette, greenery is an ideal means of injecting some colour into your interior that you have absolutely no reason to be afraid of.
As a proud homeowner, we should not pigeonhole our creativity to such measure alone. The incorporation of “green leafy friends” could do much in turning around your house, giving it a more refreshing look. House plants can be much cheaper and space efficient compared to those large and bulky furniture. The fact that they are alive also sends a strong message that your house is eco-friendly.
Green plants in our home is more than a beautification element. It provides fresh air to the owner or guests at home. Unlike other conventional home decorations, house plants refresh the air by absorbing carbon dioxide and producing oxygen. At night, however, photosynthesis ceases to occur and plant absorb oxygen instead. This problem can be easily rectified by incorporating plants such as orchids that do the opposite.
Moreover, plants also release water vapour into the atmosphere via respiratory processes, making your living space more humid. The humidity in the air provides relief to individuals who have dry skin, dry cough and sore throat.
If this isn’t convincing enough, plants also purify the air by removing toxins such as trichloroethylene, benzene and formaldehyde. Such impurities are usually found in plastic bags, paints, grocery bags, cigarette smoke and more. The plants trap these harmful substances in their tissues and break them down into harmless by-products.
With humanities inception into the industrial age, our civilisation has mostly forgotten the bounties of mother nature. Now, more than ever is the time for homeowners to embrace nature and weave its green thread into our daily lives.
