Adding plants to your living space adds colour, life, texture and depth, that a plain painting on the wall can’t. Plants are an amazing addition to any home, especially if you can’t have an outdoor garden. From your floors, to the ceilings, to the walls, you can add beautiful plants anywhere to turn your home into a garden oasis!

2. Breath Easier

Yes, you read right, plants have been known to help you breathe easier! This is how it works, plants take in the carbon dioxide that is released when breathe out and in return they release oxygen. Adding potted plants to your living space can increase oxygen levels, helping you breathe better.
