Bedroom plants can improve your space in more ways than one. Not only is adding houseplants a great way to liven up a room and add some natural greenery, it can also have specific benefits for your bedroom. Here are some of the top benefits of bedroom plants:

Plants increase humidity

Many plants can increase the humidity of a space through their natural processes. Plants absorb water through their roots and process it through their stems and leaves. The extra water evaporates and goes back into the air, adding to the overall moisture of the room. While a houseplant won't replace a humidifier for increased humidity, every bit helps.

Plants purify the air

Many houseplants can help remove toxic compounds and other pollutants from the air. Having bedroom plants will combat trace amounts of toxins like formaldehyde, benzene and xylene, to name a few. According to a 1989 NASA study, many of the most popular plants are also some of the best living air filters, making them perfect for a healthier home and bedroom.

Plants relieve stress

Houseplants have a calming effect on many people and have been shown to reduce stress levels. Caring for live plants can help with anxiety, depression and even a simple bad mood. Adding plants to your bedroom can help you rest better and wake up feeling refreshed and closer to nature.

Plants are living decor

In addition to health benefits, plants are extremely stylish. Top interior designers include houseplants in their home designs and especially love featuring them in bedrooms.

Every houseplant is a unique piece of living decor, adding greenery to match any bedroom style.
