It's important to feel positive when you get back home after a hectic day at work. And to create that positive environment, all you need is easy and affordable home decor ideas through which one can reinvent a home without any burden.
Houseplants were earlier considered as the province of an older generation, that too for the one who had time, knowledge and space to tend them. However, they are now also popular with a younger and cooler crowd.
If you or anyone in your family has allergies, smokes or just wants to breathe fresher, cleaner air in their homes, here we tell you about the plants that purify the air around you, plants that act as green and long lasting gifts, as well as which specific pollutant each one target and removes.
Palms -Spirit boosters
The hardy houseplants are easy to grow and are perfect boosters for lifting people's spirits. They are the ultimate natural air purifiers and remove formaldehyde, benzene, and carbon monoxide from the surroundings. The freshness spread by them is distracting from otherwise drab surroundings.
Peace lilies -Natural toxin removers
Peace lilies spread freshness for a longer period of time. They thrive in the shade in temperatures below 12 degrees Celsius and remove harmful toxins like acetone, ammonia, benzene, ethyl acetate, formaldehyde, methyl alcohol, trichloroethylene, and xylene.
Anthuriums: Thoughtful present for a workplace
Anthuriums are not just pretty, they also make lovely and long-lasting gifts because of their exotic looking blooms. They are a thoughtful present for a workplace with their large and dark leaves that suck up ammonia, formaldehyde, toluene, and xylene.
Schefflera -Great investment plants
Schefflera is the ones with glossy, sturdy-looking oval leaves that almost look unreal because of their waxy shine. Adding to this, they also soak up nasty toxins like benzene, formaldehyde, and toluene so, like palms, they are good for households where there is a smoker.
