Plants are a great way to brighten up your home or office, purify the air, and provide a great design element. There are plenty of options whether you want to add to a bookshelf, liven up a bar cart, or fill a corner of a living room. We’ve got you covered with great options to fit all of your needs!  To start, you will need to check the conditions of your space. Do you have a lot of bright light, will the plant be in direct sunlight, and how much room does the plant have to grow? 

A study in 2015 from the Journal of Physiological Anthropology noted that interacting with plants can reduce physiological stress. Plants are also great at purifying the air in your home by filtering out everyday pollutants! Ready to add some fresh plants to your home or office?
