4 Reasons You Should Have Fresh Flowers At Home

Flowers are great, aren’t they? They make a fabulous gift, are natural and beautiful and make people smile. However, there’s a lot more these marvels of nature can do for you and your home so we’re going to tell you four great reasons why you should keep fresh flowers in your house. Take a look at our 4 reasons you should have fresh flowers at home and see if you can take advantage of any of these amazing benefits.

1. Flowers clean the air

It goes without saying that flowers improve the smell in a room but did you know some flowering plants can actually filter and clean the air of the room too?

Peace lilies, gerberas and bromelias, according to studies can help to remove harmful toxins from the air and can even improve a night’s rest, as they give off large amounts of oxygen. So it’s not only that they look fresh, they actually freshen the air as well! In addition to that the flowers that people often choose for their scents, such as roses, also help improve people’s mood and maintain a relaxed atmosphere thanks to their aromatherapeutic powers.

2. Flowers brighten up a room and your mood too!

It’s no exaggeration to say that a little colour can go a long way. Placing flowers around a room where you can see them even has the ability to make your mood better and also to help you connect better with other people.

A Harvard study by Nancy Etcoff in 2006 noted that participants who had placed flowers around their homes in locations where they could be seen on a day-to-day basis experienced a noticeable increase in their mood as well as higher compassion towards other people! If you feel like a room in your home is a magnet for negative energy perhaps a carefully placed bouquet of lilies could help.

3. Flowers can compliment your interior design

The great thing about flowers is that they come in all shapes, sizes and colours. They’re the perfect way to compliment your new household designs or to help rethink the internal look of your home. It’s also really easy to choose flowers to match different personalities depending on the type of preference and styles that you’re trying to achieve.

In addition to this, flowers are super easy to incorporate into design features in your home such as light fittings and ornaments if you are feeling adventurous with them. Although remember, they serve pretty well for ornamental purposes themselves.

4. Flowers make you feel and think better

We all know that flowers for a sick relative have a positive psychological effect. However, did you know that there were physiological effects too? According to Park and Mattson 2008,  flowers could even lower blood pressure, reduce feelings of pain and anxiety as well as help with fatigue.

The view of flowers in your home can help you to physically de-stress and ease into relaxation better. As if that wasn’t enough they’re a great help if you’re studying for an exam or preparing for a big project as was found by Raanaas, Evensen, Rich, Sjostrom, and Patil, who discovered that flowers could even improve your cognitive performance if they were present in your workspace.

It’s amazing what a simple bunch of flowers can do for your home and your well-being. All it takes is a vase, a well-chosen bouquet and a little bit of water.
