The best plants for your bedroom

Filling your home with beautiful flowers and plants might help improve your quality of sleep.

Decorating your living spaces with flowers and plants not only looks great but can help you relax, provide purifying benefits and promote a healthy sleeping pattern. Here are some plants that may help you sleep better.

  • Lavender

    Is renowned for its relaxation properties and is used in many different massage and relaxation therapies. Research has revealed that lavender aromas can help to create a calming environment.
  • Aloe Vera

    Is listed by NASA as an air-improving plant. It’s also very easy to grow and maintain, tolerates a little bit of neglect and doesn’t need frequent watering. It does need direct sunlight, so you’ll need to place it near your bedroom window.
  • Peace lily

    Is not just pleasing to look at, it’s another of NASA’s top air-improving plants. It helps to filter out some toxins. The moisture emitted by the flowers can boost a room’s humidity by up to 5%. This suppresses airborne microbes which can cause allergies and helps relieve irritating dry noses and throats.
  • Spider plant

    It can remove up to 90% of the chemical formaldehyde from the air. Formaldehyde is found in common household products like adhesives, cleansers, grout and fillers, so it’s a good idea to keep one of these plants in the bedroom. It will also absorb odours and fumes, as well as sustain oxygen levels in the room, which can promote better sleep.
