If you are into greenery and indoor plants, but you lack floor space, there is a way to still achieve that and in a very appealing way too. I am talking about hanging plants and creating an eye-level garden that will add charm and beauty to your space. A type of wall décor that comes with great looks and health benefits too. Let’s elaborate on all this in more details.
Ways to Pull Off a Hanging Garden
Hang Them from the Ceiling
One of the most popular ways to display your indoor garden is to hang planters from the ceiling. These are easily noticeable and will bring joy each time you enter the room. Generally, when placed on the floor, plants are more often ignored and not watered enough. Well, this will hardly ever be the case with planters used as wall hangings. Convenience and looks, what more can you ask for, right?
Use Them as Art
Indoor gardens can make great wall hangings that bring the beauty of art into your home. Art pieces can be quite expensive, and by using a garden as wall art you will get changing beauty that adds smell and life into your home.
Suction Them to the Window
Small indoor planters placed on the windows can be perfect for growing mini herbs. You can place them in the kitchen and have fresh herbs within reach. Plus, you won’t have to worry about them not getting enough light, like ever.
Health Benefits from Indoor Plants
Being close to greenery makes everyone feel at ease and experience less stress. There’s no doubt that the interior landscaping can have dramatic effects on people’s well-being. If you work from home, you will also feel more productive around your small hanging garden. Your home will become your and your family’s happy place.
Improve Air Quality
There is a general understanding that plants improve the indoor environment and are helpful in the fight against the modern phenomenon of Sick Building Syndrome (SBS). The main causes for this condition are poor air quality, excessive background noise and inadequate control of light and humidity. Well, your plant wall hangings can help with some of these issues. They reduce carbon dioxide levels and the levels of some pollutants (benzene and nitrogen dioxide), they increase humidity and keep the air temperature down.
If you or someone close suffers from an injury or illness, surrounding yourself with greenery can help recover more quickly. There is even research which shows that patients with plants in their rooms required less pain medication and had lower blood pressure and heart rate. Moreover, growing and taking care of plants can play a significant role in a person’s mental recovery process.
