Looking for a way to bring the outdoors in this summer? Indoor plants can help. While it may be too hot to enjoy nature during the summer months in Arizona, there are plenty of ways you can connect with the natural world inside your own space. Within the last few years, the world has seen a fair number of creative ideas for bringing more greenery indoors – specifically during the summer months when people don’t want to spend a lot of time outside. Plant Solutions’ services create a way to incorporate plants indoors for a no muss, no fuss solution for corporate and residential customers! Here are a few ways how:
Indoor plants are your best friend
An easy way to upgrade your space and connect with nature is to bring plants into your home or workplace. With indoor plants comes indoor maintenance; we want these green goddesses to flourish in their given elements. A few great indoor, low-maintenance options include Dracaena Gold Star, Ponytail Palm, Snake Plant and Pothos. Each one of these lively friends has the capability to thrive in low light conditions, requires little watering and gives the room a tropical feel through large, lush leaves and bright green color.
Fill the room with vibrant blooms
Flowers complement any space with radiant colors pleasing to the eye while boosting creativity, reducing stress, and purifying the air. Flowering house plants will add fun and freshness to your commercial or residential space, on top of being easy to maintain. Try adding Kalanchoe into your indoor space for durability and a pop of pretty pink color. The Flowering Maple is a great houseplant that blooms similarly in shape to hibiscus flowers and is striking enough to create a lovely spectacle indoors, while also being low maintenance.
Natural materials are a must
Indoor plants aren’t the only things to consider to make your indoor space feel more natural, surround yourself with materials made from the earth. Common materials to consider using could include wood, bamboo, linen, cork, and ceramic, which all assist in shaping biophilic design by using neutral colors and textures. Try experimenting with these materials in your home or workspace in the form of pots, frames, coffee tables or artwork to increase your connection with nature indoors.
Biophilic lighting makes a difference
Lighting sets the mood of any room. It has the ability to intensify one’s emotions and transform any environment. Being outdoors, we’re surrounded by sunshine and fresh air, and this should ideally be translated into your home or office space, as well. This is best done with large windows that allow for ample natural light, but when this isn’t always possible, the design should opt for a lighting system that uses blue and white tones in the middle of the day, and amber tones early in the morning and late at night. These tones should mimic sunlight, moonlight or even the twinkling of stars!
